Testimonials

  • I went to Dr. Erb a couple years ago for a double eyelid lift; my eyes had begun to droop from wearing contacts. She was wonderful. She was personable, professional, and knew what she was doing. I felt taken care of and informed throughout the entire experience, and would highly recommend her!

    Dr. Erb was professional and kind. On my first visit she listened carefully to my preferences and concerns and tailored her approach to them. My Botox injections were entirely painless. Unlike other doctors, Dr. Erb takes the time to fully numb the area with a skin cream. The Botox effect is positive but subtle, making me look rested and youthful but not plastic-y or unnatural. I have referred all my friends to Dr. Erb and remain a loyal customer.
    ***** RealSelf

    Dr. Erb is really caring and thorough. I had blepharoplasty. The procedure and aftercare were really easy and pain-free!
    ***** Vitals

    As a woman in my 50s I began to notice my face did not reflect my youthful energetic stamina. The botox treatment and laser skin resurfacing performed by Dr. Erb did the trick–I felt and looked energetic !
    ***** Vitals

    Dr. Erb not only skillfully removed a growth from my eyelid and tested it to determine it was benign, but there is now no visible evidence at all that it was ever there. Her attention to my comfort was among the best of any doctor I have ever encountered. I cannot recommend Dr. Erb more highly. I would gladly return to her for care in the future.
    ***** Healthgrades

    A couple of years ago I went to Dr. Erb for upper and lower eyelid surgery.  She meticulously examined my eyes and then explained to me the surgical procedure.  I found her to be warm and down to earth which immediately reduced my anxiety.  The results were amazing; I have a completely natural look so no one knows I had “work” done on my face. I know this means that she has a keen attention to detail. Since then, I go regularly for botox injections to mitigate the look of my “frownies”.  She gives me lots of pain cream first before she does the shots. I haven’t had a laser treatment yet but I look forward to having that done soon.  I highly recommend Dr. Erb.

What is Oculoplastic Surgery?

Your face is continuously on display, for all to see. And your eyes are the window to your soul. When choosing a surgeon for cosmetic eyelid and face surgery, it is important to consider the physician’s training. Oculoplastic Surgery (also known as Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery or Oculo-Facial Plastic Surgery) is a specialized field with a total of 6 years in the training of the eyes and eyelids which is the most eyelid training than any other type of cosmetic surgeon. An Oculoplastic Surgeon has spent 4 years in the training of eyes and eyelids gaining certification as an ophthalmologist and then spends 2 more years in Oculoplastic Surgery fellowship in the training of the eyelids and face.

Combining knowledge of how to manage the delicate eye with detailed plastic surgery knowledge for the eyelids, an Oculoplastic Surgeon offers the very best experience to ensure the safest and most cosmetically appealing results after surgery. When you consult with an Oculoplastic Surgeon, you a consulting with a true eyelid expert. Why trust your eyes to anyone else?

 

What is the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS)?

The American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS) comprises an elite group of Oculoplastic Surgeons who have training and experience in the highly specialized fields of eye, plastic, facial, and reconstructive surgery who have passed rigorous requirements to join ASOPRS.

First, the surgeon must complete a 2-year fellowship training program which has been approved by ASOPRS as having the proper volume, depth and breadth of training in cosmetic and reconstructive eyelid and facial surgery. These fellowship programs are prestigious and coveted because there are many more applicants than slots available. Each year, only about 20 surgeons in the US and Canada are trained in this field.

Furthermore, ASOPRS members must pass a written exam, an oral exam, and write a scientific thesis of original research.  Only after all of these steps have been completed is a surgeon allowed to become a member of ASOPRS.

Dr. Erb is a full member of ASOPRS, having completed all of these requirements. Around the world, there are approximately 500 such physicians who have passed these rigid criteria for certification.
