Five stars! My experience with Dr. Kang was wonderful! I was initially terrified about the surgery but I felt absolutely nothing. I highly recommend her. My eyes look better than ever!

The eyelid surgery went very well for me! During and after the surgery, I had no real discomfort. The results are great and my scar is nearly undetectable. Best of all, Dr. Kang was so great to work with. Her level of professionalism is excellent and her attention to detail for me was exceptional. I 100% recommend Dr. Kang to anyone!
