Here at Schlessinger Eye & Face, we do not believe all cosmetic treatments are created equal. In fact, no two patients are alike and it is for that reason that we suggest a personal one-on-one consultation to weigh all of the options available to you. Because there are many non-surgical options, Dr. Schlessinger has carefully selected and offers only the most effective procedures. With variables such as age, lifestyle, budget and potential “down-time” coming into play for each patient, it has never been more important than now to be carefully informed about the treatment(s) you will undergo.

When it comes to the delicate skin surrounding the eyes and on your face, it’s important to choose a surgeon who is uniquely qualified to treat these areas. As a Fellow of the Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Schlessinger is a renowned surgeon in his field with extensive training in aesthetic facial procedures. He prides himself on delivering natural-looking results; his patients have a refreshed and simply beautiful result.

I have had a problem with eyes and have gone to Dr. Schlessinger for months. He has been extremely patient and he has worked through many different things to take care of me. He never gave up. I was referred to him by another eye doctor who was ell respected but unable to help my problem. Additionally, every person who works in this practice is terrific and helpful. It seems they really care about their patients.
