Have no fear, Dr. Brackup is here!!!!

My eyes look great

Dr. Brackup is amazing doctor. I am a 43 year old single mom and looking tired is not really what I wanted. I had my lower lids done about a month and a half ago and I went from looking sad and tired to loving the reflection that I see. Thank you Dr. Brackup.

73 Years Old

Dr. Brackup and his assistant, Michelle, explained everything to me. They answered all my questions and managed my expectations. I asked for suggestions to accomplish the look I wanted. Dr. Brackup explained and offered suggestions. He had me bring in pictures and he was very candid with what he could do. Cost was explained and broken down for me. There are no disappointments. I followed their directions to the letter. I am so pleased.

My thick middle has bothered me for years. I'm not considered to be overweight but 3 children did a number on my mid area. The results are truly life altering...my stomach is perfectly flat...a total washboard like pre-kids! Dr. Brackup...
