After 4 years I want to share some dance pictures
with you from my World Competition. You fixed me up on 12/29/05

"I just wanted to say thank you for preventing
me making a big mistake regarding my eyelids!
I posted a question on RealSelf
regarding asymmetric and heavy upper eyelids back in July. You felt
that my problem wasn't heavy lids (or ptosis) but that I just needed
You strongly advised against having skin removed on my upper eyelid.
I since saw two oculoplastic surgeons in the UK and both thought
it was ptosis, however I managed to convince the second one to try
the restylane idea first. He did so and the result has been great
and much cheaper and less invasive/traumatic than ptosis surgery.
My surgeon was also pleasantly surprised at the result! Without
your reply to my comment on Realself I would almost certainly have
had this expensive and invasive operation and probably been left
with poppy eyes which wouldn't have been very attractive!
I just felt I had to email as I am so grateful for your advice."

advice & a sense that I'd get their standard approach.

"I had a situation with an eyelid surgery gone
so very wrong in my home country Sweden and had to fly to the USA
to look for eyelid experts on revision. Please read my blog, or
my post eyelid surgery gone very very wrong here on this page. I
searched the whole country for over a year and a half before I found
a doctor that made any sense to me.
Dr Hoenig in Beverly Hills took care of a highly delicate
problem that other doctors really did not to do with. I was left
totally hollowed out and all skin had been removed. I looked like
a total freak. Had a nervous breakdown and basically could not function
properly emotionally ever since from the botched eyelid job in Sweden.
Dr Hoenig created new eyelids for me, with Juvederm, and basically
sculpted my old eyelid shape back with the filler. Its unbelieavble!
I know it will never be my old eyelids, and I still
suffer emotionally from the surgery since -07, but it is the closest
I can come for now and I am beyond thrilled. I am slowly getting
my life back again, feel better and better and the juvederm is holding
up very well. Please let me give you some advice, Only go to the
BEST with your eyes! The eye area is very delicate and when something
goes wrong it is hard to repair. I wish I had known about this website
before I did my surgery back home. I would pay anything to have
it undone. So, its very good that you do all this reseach. Take
your time to find a great and skilled surgeon who understand beauty.
I can only say that if it was not for Dr Hoenig I
don't know where I would be today emotionally. It's been hell! He
really gave me my eyes and face and self esteem back. He is also
conservative and that is a good thing, since for me, less is more(
wish the Swedish butcher knew what that meant!)

(a note a patient sent to her friend after seeing Dr. Hoenig...)
I hope you are doing well on this muggy August afternoon! I'm emailing
you because it's been a while, but also to let you know that I'm
done with my eye restoration at Dr Hoenig's.
I'm going to come by so you can see it. It's truly amazing. This
Monday, I had the Mueller resection process. Took 10 minutes, local
only with sedation pill (no big deal whatsoever) and the results
are astounding. Truly astounding. You know Dr. XXX that you went
to who said he couldn't do anything about the upper hollows? Wrong.
There is. I know, because I FINALLY have my eyes back - the ones
I had before I started tampering with them. Here's what Dr Hoenig
Injected upper hollows with Restylane and Juvederm to create "eye
pillows," i.e. youthful padding. He goes around some kind of
nerve, he's super careful and he does it in 2-3 stages. This is
much better than using real fat, because for us upper eyelid post-surgical
"victims," we've got so much scar tissue that the only
thing you can squeeze in there is something with small molecules,
i.e. hyaluronic acid, not fat. And believe me, it stays and stays
and stays, since nothing really moves up there.
Resected the Muller muscle, posterior approach. This means that
my eyelids, which all of a sudden had begun drooping severely -
have been pulled up, without cutting any skin at all.
The combination of getting back my "eye pillows" around
the entire upper eye AND the resection of the muscle has recreated
exactly what I had at age 23. You won't believe it when you see
it. I will bring photos just so you can compare. It's unbelievable.
Insane. I'm going back on Monday to get the pull-thru stitch out
and to take out the protective contact lens he sticks in there.
If I were you, I'd seriously get an appointment with him. He's on
Wilshire and Linden, you can walk there on your lunch hour. He runs
on time, so no worries. Plus, he's darling. No weirdness or coldness
like so many ophthalmologists I've seen in the past. His wife works
there too, and she is supersweet.
If you see me, you'll flip. The doc took me back even 5 more years.
I have fulllness of the entire eye, without any shadows or droopiness.
The man is a true genius when it comes to eyes, that's for sure.
I bet he can fix yours too, and you'll look even greater than you
already do now.
Let me know when I can come by and show off the eyes - without any
makeup, they don't need ANY!!!!

but you made it so easy and have been so kind. I sing your praises!

you did on my face. I know it presented problems for you, given
my previous history but thanks to your patience, technique, and
artistry, you gave me a result that I could not have imagined any
better. I thank both you and Danya for the ongoing care you gave
me. Fondest wishes,"

"Dear Dr. Hoenig,
This is the Armenian girl with hollow eyes! First,
I must say that you've changed my life. I can't get over how much
I like my eyes again. Thank You!
I am so excited about seeing you
next Friday at 3pm. I am flying in from New York just to see you
so please don't cancel. I don't mind waiting if you're busy. My
eyes look so much smaller and everyone tells me that I look amazing.
I just wanted to touch base before my
appointment next week. Take care and I'll see you on Friday.

my family and I have for the kindness and compassion you have shown
me. Please accept this small gift as a token of my appreciation.
Thank you so much,"

Your very grateful patient,"
"Dear Dr. Hoenig,
My deepest thanks to you and Danya for helping me with the problems
that resulted from another doctor's eyelid surgery.
After 5 previous doctors failed to even acknowledge
my discomfort let alone diagnose the problem, you diagnosed the
problem and began the proper treatment on the first visit. By the
next day I noticed improvement. Now, only a few months later I'm
wearing my contact lenses again and feel back to normal.
I appreciate your knowledge and skill as well as your
kindness and the way you helped me overcome the fear I had felt
since the surgery. You are one in a million.
I have made a donation to The Smile Train - a charity
that provides plastic surgery to children in underdeveloped countries.
I will continue to contribute, each time remembering your kindness

"Dear Dr. Hoenig, I am hoping this note will
convey my deepest appreciation & gratitude for what you have
done for me. You are a highly skilled surgeon/artist, and simply
a wonderful person.
As I greet my 50th birthday in January, I do so with
a renewed confidence and happiness.
Please enjoy a very small token of my appreciation.
It's just a little something to keep you going all those long hours.
Very warm regards,"
"Dear Dr. Hoenig, I want to thank you for a "great"
surgical experience. The surgery was an easy process all due to
your expertise and me being allowed to be awake. Thank you once

"I just wanted to write and tell you what an
amazing experience I've had with Jonathan Hoenig. I had the face
lift/neck lift/lower eyelids done on September 14. It was about
a six hour procedure and I did it awake with just oral Valium and
Demerol. It was incredibly interesting and completely painless.
Hoenig is the most fastidious guy and really pays an incredible
amount of attention to his patients during the recovery process.
After two weeks I was completely able to go out in the world as
the swelling and bruising were not obvious to others. It will be
three weeks this Thursday and my progress has been terrific.
I am very, very happy with the results and Hoenig tells me I will
only be happier as time goes on. I am grateful that you gave me
him as a referral and were adamant that he was the only guy to see.
Thanks again and again"

"Dear Doctor Hoenig,
Before I met you I was told you were one of the best
in the business. As this information was conveyed to me by a number
of your peers, I was pretty sure it was true. At my first appointment
I found you to be a nice guy who really knows his craft. After those
pretty scary few days following my surgery I found you to be a very
kind, caring and patient man. As my face began to heal, I found
out you were pretty much a GENIUS. After you convinced me to let
you give me that final touch on my lips, I realized that you are
THE VERY BEST DOCTOR IN ALL THE LAND.
I can't thank you enough for giving me back my confidence
and making me feel good about myself, not to mention being pretty
damn cute. Sincerely,"

much I love my new (younger) look! I so appreciate your skill as
a surgeon and your diligence and dedication to me as your patient.
You are an asset to your profession. Thanks again! Fondly, "
"Dear Dr. Hoenig,
Its been about 8 months since my last visit.
I am extremely pleased with the results of everything we did and
now no longer feel self conscious about my age showing. In fact
I often get complimented on how well I look from new acquaintances;
there could be no better testimony. Thank you for setting the clock
back and helping me look as young as I feel. Sincerely, "

"I would like to thank you sincerely for your
kindness & patience over the last two weeks. Few doctors would
call to check up on their patients. Far less give up a Friday evening
to perform an impromptu revision. I deeply appreciate what you did
and I am grateful that your career is a true vocation."
"I want to thank you again for my eyelid shots
yesterday. It is always comforting, that feel of "it's going
to be okay" when we come see you. I really could write you
a mile long letter, I know you are very busy, but it is very important
I let you know how appreciative I am for you, very important. I
am happy you are my doctor. I know you can only imagine what I have
been through, and I try and hold it all in, I only can now wish
I'd never seen another doctor but you."

"Other than the bruising I feel great. I have
not had to take any pain medication of any kind. Although I can't
tell what the final outcome is going to look like yet I can tell
you I feel much better about myself. I can't express into words
how grateful I am. Thank you so much for everything you have done."
"Dear Dr. Hoenig,
I am sure you remember my daughter and the surgery you performed
under her eyes back in July. We have not forgotten you and I will
be sending you some new pictures of her this week! We are both SO
VERY HAPPY with the results and I see a big change in her. She has
blossomed with self-confidence and will be enrolling into college
to make some important career choices in her life.
I just wanted to thank you for your incredible expertise, your wonderful
staff, your prompt returned phone calls and for making time in your
schedule to meet with us when things seemed a little rough. You
are truly a professional in your field! (Also thank you for being
a little harsh with her when she faltered...it was a push she really
I just wanted you to know you really affected both of our lives
in a positive manner. There aren't enough words to thank you. Watch
for the pictures in the next week!

years without this most gracious professional. He carries his oath

am for all the time and care you devoted to me. My face makes me
smile now! THANK YOU FROM MY HEART!"
"Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. It is still
never enough for someone who took so many tired years off my face.
Now my inner energy will be reflected in my smile. Thank you,"
"First, I want to thank you for being so fair
and honest about everything. I'm always a bit incredulous when it
comes to cosmetic surgeons. There really are a lot of B.S.ers floating
around, so I feel so fortunate to have found a doctor who has so
much integrity. Anyway, I'm ecstatic about the results! My eyes
look better than they ever have. You're the best! Thanks so much!"
"Just a note to thank you again for everything
you have done for me. I wanted you to know I feel 1000 times better
about my appearance thanks to you. I will never forget your generosity
and compassion. May God bless you and return to you all the blessings
you give to others!"
Words cannot express the satisfaction I have
with your surgery skills. You have changed my whole life.
There are no words to express how grateful
I am to you for all youve done! I placed myself in your talented
hands and am pleased beyond my wildest imagination with what youve
accomplished. But even more, your special care and attention, home
visits, even shopping for me, is more than I couldve expected!
You are a special person, an excellent surgeon, and a true mensch!
Thank you for making me look and feel beautiful. Youre the
Thank you for the subtle, artistic and beautiful
work you did for me. I am so thrilled with itYou are extraordinary!
I can not thank you enough. Im in awe
-my husband is in awe- with what you did and what you had to work
with. My face is an example of what good plastic surgery looks like.
I now see why the doctor who referred me to you spoke so highly
of you. Its always a good sign when you are respected by others
in your field. I see youre very brilliant and gifted. Thank
you for the time, patience and care you showed me. I am ONE HAPPY
You are my favorite doctor for keeping me safe.
Thanks for all the fat! You have changed my opinion of fat. I love
I just wanted to thank you on behalf of my mother
and brother for all the attention, care and kindness you gave to
my mom. Your interest and warmth was instrumental in making what
could have been a devastating experience (in terms of the diagnosis)
into more or less a normal hospital stay for mother. I know how
she looked forward to your reassurance and presence and I really
dont think she would have come out as whole as
she did if it werent for your attention. Needless to say you
were a comfort for all of us and I want you to know that you are
a special person. You have obviously chosen the right profession
and your presence illuminates the true essence of a physician
a warm, caring, sensitive human being. Thanks again for everything.
I wanted to thank you for your kindness, care
and thoughtfulness you extended to my father from day one.
It meant a great deal to both my dad and me to know that you were
always available to us. I hope you know that my dad is quite fond
of you and always felt secure in your presence. Thank you again!
We have been looking for a special gift for
you but we couldnt find one which could express my gratitude
for the miracle you performed on my face and the kind and supportive
care I received. May God bless you always!
