5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery
I am totally satisfied with Dr. Malena Amato. She did a great job and she made me feel at ease. From my first consultation with her to my post-op visit, I had a great experience. Since this was my first experience, I was very nervous going in. I would highly recommend her to all my friends and family. I will do any future procedures with her. She has great bedside manners.
5 out of 5 stars Ptosis Surgery
After a couple visits to my Optometrist, I was diagnosed with Ptosis when I went to visit Dr. Amatto at TOC. My eyelids were drooping over my eyeballs a bit too much that it was affecting my vision especially at night. Every light in my sight (street lights, car lights, break lights, etc....) were streaking down and blocking part of my vision. I scheduled the surgery, very nervous mind...
I feel fortunate that I had the opportunity to pursue my training and specialty all over the country, from Georgetown in Washington D.C., to Stanford University in Palo Alto, CA, and even abroad. Now, I enjoy taking care of patients in Austin and central Texas and making them feel and look better.
