5 out of 5 stars Ptosis Surgery

Wonderful Clinic

I was extremely impressed with the service I received from Dr. McKevitt and her staff. The procedure was explained thoroughly and any questions were answered. During the procedure, Dr. McKevitt explained everything she was doing and was calm and supportive throughout. I can't say enough about how professional and caring Dr. McKevitt and the staff are.

I had a great experience with the operation and with the doctor

I had my eyes "lifted" and found the experience to be exceptional and the work excellent. Dr. Silvia McKevitt and her staff were wonderful to work with. They spent all the time I needed and answered all my questions, explaining the procedure. After the procedure they kept in touch to make sure I was doing okay. I would definitely recommend the procedure and the doctor.

Upper Blepharoplasty - Renton, WA

I'm very happy with the results. My upper eyelids were reducing my upper field of vision. I didn't realize how much effort it was taking to use my forehead muscles to keep my eyes open until after the procedure. My field of vision is greatly improved and my forehead muscles are much more relaxed. Dr. McKevitt at Eye Plastic Northwest showed great skill and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.

Dr. Silvia S. McKevitt - Renton, WA

Dr. McKevitt combines surgical expertise with compassion to provide a truly high standard of care. I first saw Dr. with swollen, droopy eyelids which over several months had reduced my vision from 20/30 to 20/60, a point where I could no longer drive. Dr Mckevitt treated my eyelids to eliminate the swelling and performed surgery to correct the droopiness. The surgery was carried out...

I Can See and Looking Good Too!! - Renton, WA

Dr McKevitt performed an upper blepharoplasty and an endoscopic brow lift and I am more than happy with results. She is patient and skilled in her profession. I was having a trouble driving because of my droopy eyes. I now have no problem driving and look good also! I should have done this sooner, the recovery was fast and almost pain free. The surgery was on a Wednesday afternoon...

Upper Eyelid Surgery with Dr. McKevitt. Renton, WA

I have upper eyelid surgery with Dr. Sylvia McKevitt on 5/5/16. I am 46, with hereditary droopy eyelids. My grandmother had the surgery when she was in her 60's (paid by insurance) and my mother had it when she was my age, 20 years ago. I was fully prepared for the surgery, and had consults with several other surgeons, but felt most comfortable with Dr. McKevitt. She is an Oculoplastic...

Much Needed to Help with Vision. Renton, WA

Dr. McKevitt did an excellent job on this procedure to remove excess skin on my upper eyelids. She thoroughly explained the steps of the surgery and why it was needed. I am very thankful and the referral to her was spot on. She is outstanding. I couldn't have asked for better results. Thank you Dr. McKevitt.
