I just had eye surgery done by Doctor James H. Oestreicher, with excellent results.

Previously, I had eye surgery (blepharosplasty) performed elsewhere about 2 years ago. My previous board-certified plastic surgeon left me with a depressed, deformed eye shape: the upper eyelid skin was cut too much which caused the medial canthus (inner corner) of the eyes to sit too low. The lateral end of the upper eye lid had a thick scar and fold. The crease was too high. He had also taken too much fat out of my lower eye lid which caused it to look hollow and sick.

I was so depressed.

I worked very hard to look for another doctor by doing a lot of research and having many consultations with different plastic surgeons for almost 2 years. All of the doctors that I consulted with referred me to Dr. James H. Oestreicher in downtown Toronto.

In view of the recommendations, I booked an appointment with Doctor Oestreicher who performed the Y-To-V medial epicanthoplasty techniques on me. He also performed lateral canthoplasty on me to correct all of the problems caused by my previous plastic surgeon.

The result of the decreased epicanthal fold was very natural with no noticeable scarring. He had also released the underlying musculature from the epicanthal fold which got rid of the angry/sad, artificial high crease look.

The canthoplasty and lateral canthoplasty not only got rid of the old lump, it tightened the skin around the eye area to give me a very refreshed look. My lower eyelids now also look very natural.

In short, my eyes now have the very natural, almond shape that I've always dreamed about.

Thanks for million Doctor Oestreicher and your whole excellent medical team!
