Went in for blepharoplasty for one eye, but he thought I could use two, so I assented. The result was that the one eye i went in for still has the problem, which is that the lid is impairing my vision. No way I'd go back for another. His hands are a bit shaky, too, which I found out only when he was taking the stitches out. Blepharoplasty is apparently a much less exact science that I thought. At least he erred on the conservative side. If he had taken too much out, it would be far worse.

Dr. Benaim is very caring, very professional as well as knowledgeable. In addition, he takes as much time as needed with each patient.
