In 2014 I had both upper and lower blepharoplasty by Dr. C. On the initial he told me that it would be easy, and that I would love it. But he never told me about any of the risks. I ended up with a huge lower drooping eye (ptosis) which he couldn't fix. It took me two years to find someone to fix it. Point is if he had told me that I was not a good candidate (flat cheeks) for this type of surgery I would not have done it. He got the money and I got a lot of problems.

Five stars for Dr. Cytryn! I’m receiving compliments from all my friends! Since he did my surgery I look younger and more refreshed. Dr. Cytryn took time to really listen to what I wanted. His staff was friendly and helpful.

I had a blocked tear duct that wouldn't drain, & was causing me to tear constantly. Dr. Cytryn explained the procedure to me in detail and reassured me that it would solve the problem. At the same time we opted for some cosmetics too. He removed the fatty tissue below my eye, and now, years later, I don't live with the annoyance of an eye dripping with tears, and I never look tired! It takes artistic abilities, and extraordinary surgical skills. Dr. Cytryn excels in both. I highly recommend him.

I came to Dr. Cytryn after unsatisfactory consultations with 2 other surgeons. Dr. Cytryn gave me the confidence to move forward with an issue that I had been living with for nearly 10 years. He successfully reconstructed my right eyelid. The results were better than I had hoped. I am 100% pleased with the surgery. Dr. Cytryn went above and beyond, working with me patiently in addressing all my questions and concerns prior and post surgery. I highly recommend him.

Dr Cytryn performed eyelid surgery for 1 drooping eye lid that I had since birth. I am SO pleased at his work and his bedside manner. He did a fabulous job! He's wonderful and I would highly recommend!
