Transforming Lives: Bilateral Upper Lid Extended Ptosis Surgery with Bilateral Lower Lid Blepharoplasty at Boutique Eye OrlandoOctober 26, 2023
Shortly after I started my practice years ago in Washington, D.C., a prominent U.S. Senator surprised me at my office, requesting a consult for plastic surgery. He said, “Doc, everyone thinks I’m asleep on the Senate floor! What can you do for me?”
He had already seen several established surgeons in the area but did not balk when I told him plainly that he needed both a brow lift and a droopy eyelid repair. I carefully explained what made his situation unique and offered to perform the procedure in my office the following week due to his scheduling limitations. He agreed without hesitation. His surgery was successful, with a speedy recovery.
One year later, he dropped off a note (along with a bottle of wine) to say his colleagues were now taking him much more seriously, thanks to me, which of course was completely untrue.
However, his trust in me boosted my confidence greatly and still serves to remind me that every patient is a VIP.
