Doctor Review

Consultation review: Just traumatic. Incredibly arrogant and uncaring.

I had mentioned the canthopexy to a few plastic surgeons before... READ MORE

I had natural C cups until after the birth of my child. Afterwards, they looked more like deflated, sagging B cups. Dr Hidalgo to the rescue! Now I am a D cup. He is the master of natural looking breasts. Such a great bedside manner too. Spends plenty of time with you. Very caring and answers all questions. READ MORE

Are you in New York? If so, Dr S is great. If not, definitely go to an oculoplastic surgeon only. READ COMMENT

Hi, I don't recall seeing the marking he did on my eyes. I do know that when you pull the corners up to simulate the new eye shape, it's going to look very unnatural no matter what. I think it's best to bring photos of eyes you like.... READ COMMENT
