I came to Dr. Melanie Erb because I was concerned of one eye drooping more than the other and that made my eyes look not symmetrical. Scheduling a surgery date was very easy, her staff is very nice and professional. I had my surgery a little over 5 months ago. I was very scared and nervous to have the surgery because Im just a nervous wreck by nature but Dr. Erb made sure my procedure was pain-free, she has a great way of performing surgery with no pain and makes you feel so relaxed during the whole procedure. I am so happy with my results. I had no complications whatsoever, my eyes look great! I am happy I chose Dr. Erb for my procedure. She is very nice, listens to you and answers all your questions with a smile. I recommend her highly.

I had a Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC) just under my right eye. Dr. Erb performed the surgical removal. Not only did she remove the BCC, but she performed such a precise surgical technique by lifting the lower skin flap! Stretching the skin flap, so that sagging would not occur and scaring would be minimal! There is no evidence 8 months later that a BCC surgery ever occurred! Amazing work! Thank you Dr. Erb

Dr. Erb is unique among master surgeons in her field. I came to her with a longstanding problem as a result of a prior ptosis surgery from 15 years ago. Other experienced plastic surgeons claimed the problem was too difficult for them to fix. Dr. Erb confidently, expertly gave me back my eyes. I am 6 weeks out from surgery and every day more of me emerges. I smile with my eyes now. Follow up care with Dr. Erb is off the charts. So much caution, thoroughly explaining every detail and scheduling lots of post surgery appointments. I never once felt I couldn't ask questions and get straight answers. Dr. Erb's staff, Gina and Mariah reflect all that is good in her. Dr. Erb is an artist with surgical skills that alone make her one of a kind. Her lovely personality and kindness all the more add to her uniqueness. Thank you Dr. Erb and Gina and Mariah.

EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS. I met with another oculoplastic surgeon that my optometrist had recommended prior to seeing Dr. Erb. I am so glad that I chose Dr. Erb to do my procedures. I would recommend her in a heartbeat. If you're considering any kind of cosmetic laser treatment or eye enhancement surgery, please don't do it without consulting her. She is extraordinarily skilled and also a very caring, compassionate physician. Her assistant Gina is literally the nicest woman I have ever met.

I met Dr. Erb in September 2019 for a consultant to correct ptosis on my left eye. Dr. Erb was on time and was very professional with good bed side manner. The front office staff, Gina and Christy was very friendly and polite. I had my left eye ptosis surgery done by Dr. Erb on October 2019 and was very happy with the result. The procedure itself was comfortable and my experience was very pleasant. My recovery went well and I am extremely happy with the result. I then came back to Dr. Erb for an upper Blepharoplasty on both eyes in March 2020. Dr. Erb was very accommodating to my schedule which I am forever thankful. I am 3 weeks post op and is beyond satisfied with the result. At my 3 weeks post op appointment with Dr. Erb, I requested to have fillers on my upper lips, smile line, and under my nose. Dr. Erb explained all the details and filler options to me so that I understood all my options. Again, Dr. Erb delivered a very pleasant and beautiful result. I am 100% satisfied and her w

The best of the best and very thorough and caring! I have seen many Ophthalmologists since I got an eye infection after a lash extension last year in June, so far nobody was able to cure this infection. No other Ophthalmologist of the many I consulted with, took as much time and none of the doctors came up with a specific treatment plan. Hopefully my eyes will be much better when I have my follow-up appointment. She and her staff provide excellent care to their patients! They go above and beyond to meet your needs. I highly recommend Dr. Erb, and this was just my first visit.

I had my ptosis surgery done by the very skilled hand of Dr Melanie Erb. I had put off this corrective surgery for years because I never felt comfortable with any doctor I consulted with in the past. Dr Erb not only proved to be a very capable surgeon, but her meticulousness, attentive bedside manner, and patiently taking the time to answer my questions, made the entire process – from consultation to post-surgery - smoother than I ever expected. And thanks to her wonderful assistant Gina, dealing with her office was also a pleasure. Gina always greets you with a smile, returns calls in a timely manner, gets you promptly to your appointment, and strives to make your office visit a pleasant experience. I never thought I would say this about a doctor’s office but I actually looked forward to going to my appointments! I am very thankful for the care I received from Dr. Erb and would highly recommend her.

I was a patient of Doctor Melanie Ho Erb 7 years before she move to Irvine. I was more than willing to drive one hour to see her again. We discussed what would be the best option for my skin. We decided on a Fraxel CO2 Laser Treatment. My skin is firmer with no brown spots and the texture of my skin is remarkable. I didn’t have any problems healing. I attribute that to Doctor Erb’s excellent care. I highly recommend Doctor Erb.

Dr. Erb did my ptosis (droopy eyelid) and lid crease revision surgery. She spent all the time she needed on my eye and I never felt that I was rushed. Dr. Erb’s nurse, Gina, is very friendly and warm. I received great care from Dr. Erb and Gina, and I look much better than before the procedure. Thank you Dr. Erb. And thank you Gina!

I started to see Doctor Melanie Ho Erb. MD 7 years ago in Torrance. She did an upper eyelift as well as the lower eye and they both looked great. I was so impressed with Doctor Erb. She is very professional, thoughtful and willing to explain any concern I had. I couldn’t believe she had moved to Irvine from Redondo Beach! I was more than willing to see her again. We discussed what would be the best option for me. We decided on a Fraxel CO2 Laser Treatment. I LOVE IT!!!! My skin is firmer wit

I am so thankful for Dr. Erb and her assistant Gina!! My daughter is 13 years old a chalazion on her right eye that would not go away for months. We tried the warm compresses, the steroid antibiotic drops hoping it would go away on its own, but it didn’t. I really wanted to find someone I could trust to perform such a delicate procedure on my daughter’s eye. Most pediatric ophthalmologist were only willing to do such a procedure at a surgery center with anesthesia present, which would have be

O-M-G! Absolutely the BEST Dr I have ever had!! I’ve been suffering from issues with the skin around my eyes for as long as I can remember - dry, irritated, itchy —it would come and go in severity but always remained super sensitive. Nothing I did or tried helped until I finally decided to go to an Opthamologist after a new horrible wrinkle showed up under my eyes from rubbing and scratching my eyes thinking perhaps I actually had dry eye. Dr. Erb quickly pintpointed the issue, and all is well!

I highly recommend Melanie Erb, MD. She is an extremely talented and skilled surgeon. In addition, she is an exceptionally kind and caring doctor. Dr. Erb did an outstanding job on my double blepharoplasty (upper eyelid) procedure. My lacrimal (tear) glands were prolapsed (dropped down) and she was able to reposition my tear glands along with my excess upper eyelid skin into the folds of my eyes. There have been no complications or dry-eye difficulties. Dr. Erb is a accomplished surgeon.

Dr. Erb was professional and kind. On my first visit she listened carefully to my preferences and concerns and tailored her approach to them. My Botox injections were entirely painless. Unlike other doctors, Dr. Erb takes the time to fully numb the area with a skin cream. The Botox effect is positive but subtle, making me look rested and youthful but not plastic-y or unnatural. I have referred all my friends to Dr. Erb and remain a loyal customer.
