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.

Dr Mckevitt treated my eyelids to eliminate the swelling and performed surgery to correct the droopiness. The surgery was carried out...
