My visit and surgery with Dr. DeBacker went fantastic. He was very straight forward about the procedure and when it actually happened on Tuesday 3/26 it went smooth and I feel great. I have not had any complications all week and I was very happy to hear from Dr. DeBacker that same day to check up on me. I would highly recommend Dr. DeBacker and his staff was great too, Pearl helped me out tremendously.

This gentleman is a “stellar example” for of his profession! In every catagory of interaction with this doctor my experience could not have been better! And the results of my surgery were far better than I could have reasonably expected. The end result is perfectly natural... and folks cannot easily believe the before versus after pictures! Without fail... consult with Dr. DeBacker “before” you have any eye procedure performed. You'll be tracking me down to buy me a steak dinner.

Dr DeBacker gave full explanation and expected results of procedure. His manner gives one confidence in his abilities. Would definitely recommend to those needing blepharoplasty.

At my consultation with Dr DeBacker for eyelid surgery, he explained what he could also do with a brow lift. I am age 49 and happy I had both procedures done! It seems he was also able to correct some asymmetry in my face, giving me a more youthful and balanced appearance. The recovery period went quickly and smoothly. He and his assistant were always helpful and available when I had questions.

I am 73 years old and had heavy, sagging eyelids. My eyelashes were going into my eyes, and the lids affected my vision. I was referred to Dr DeBacker. He performed my eyelid surgery, both eyes, back in Aug 2018. I couldn't had been referred to a more Professional, Percisioned Eyeplastx Surgeon. I never had any pain or discomfort, very faint scarring, and the healing process was great. Dr DeBacker is an Excellent Blepharoplasty Surgeon, and I Highly Recommend him. He is the Best!

In this day and age of diminishing “pride in workmanship” on a general basis, it’s extremely refreshing and reassuring to encounter someone of Dr. DeBacker's caliber. His demeanor exhibited superb professionalism, utmost in courtesy, and a Sincere desire to assist. Thus, the end result of my surgery was superb !!!

This practice is like a breath of fresh air. The facility and warm, friendly staff compliment Dr. Debacker's experience and skill. On the day of my surgery, he personally called me in the evening to see how I was doing and to answer any questions. If you are a medicare patient, you can rely on his charges because he is an in-network provider. He also gives you a written guarantee of the maximum charges should Medicare not cover your procedure. Everything considered, excellent choice.
