The doctors at Eyesthetica recognize that every patient has different aesthetic goals. The high-caliber surgeons at Eyesthetica meticulously evaluate the face in all dimensions, using their knowledge of oculofacial surgery to address each patient’s individual concerns with surgical and non-surgical options in the following areas:
- The upper face (forehead/eyebrows/upper eyelids)
- The midface (lower eyelids/cheeks)
- The lower face (lips and neck)
Drs. David B. Samimi, Christopher C. Lo and Yao Wang create a custom treatment plan for each patient. Our goal is to help each patient attain the best possible results, while preserving the health and safety of your eyes.

She also is a big foodie and loves exploring everything Los Angeles has to offer.
The professional manner Dr. Samimi exhibited throughout all three phases of my reconstructive surgery were exemplary. The thorough explanation he provided during the pre-op phase, the supportive thoughtfulness he offered during the surgery, and the post operation analysis he conducted following the surgery all evidenced the extent of his expertise and conscientious respect for addressing all my concerns and issues. Dr. Samimi not only did a perfect job on my lower eyelids, but the level of care, friendliness and excellence that I received from him and his staff was something you just have to experience yourself to believe.
