All my life I have struggled with having deep-set eyes that were not in proportion to the rest of my face and were not symmetrical.As I aged, I also had more fat deposits under my lower lids. Dr. Putterman performed a removal of my upper eye lid skin folds and lower eye lid bags.The consultation was gentle as he helped guide me with the decision making process. I appreciated how Dr.Putterman found a balance with considering what I wanted done ideally and what he understood to be a natural looking result. His office staff was very helpful in setting up the dates and organizing details of surgery and his nurses were kind and helped me feel at ease the day of the procedure. My recovery was seamless but the few times I worried about something, Dr. Putterman was responsive to my phone calls got right back to me. I appreciated his gentle reassuring approach and I have to say this was one of the easiest procedures I ever had.

I feel Dr Putterman is THE expert in his field.I have Thyroid Eye Disease and what he was able to do for me was amazing!He is always punctual and thoroughly explains everything.His follow-up calls after surgery were very much appreciated. His assistant and staff are warm and caring people. They make the whole process seamless.And their follow-up calls were very much appreciate, as well. It's really cool to have a professional family who makes you feel like you are their only patient.

Thanks to you all!

Dr. Putterman is very gentle, experienced, and very "patient oriented". He even returned my calls on Sunday from his home! His staff is exceptional, and they, too, were responsive and helpful whenever I had questions or concerns. Cosmetic surgery is never an easy decision, but rest assured that when you select Dr. Putterman, you will be in the hands of one of the most experienced, reputable, and knowlegeable surgeons just about anywhere. I am very pleased with the results of my lower blepharoplasty. 

I don’t know if you will remember me, but I was your patient about 1 ½ yrs. ago.  I don’t even know if you will have time to read this yourself.
I wanted to thank you and your staff for being so nice to me and truly for the excellent job that you did on my eye.  For years the looks of my eye bothered my insides as well the obvious on the outside.  Thank you so much for fixing everything, as you have given me the BEST gift that anyone could have ever given me.

Dear Dr. Putterman,

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the hard work that you’ve put in over the years which has made my newly shaped eyelid possible.  From the first time I met you and your wonderful staff, to admiring your office’s beautiful view, I felt at home.  I also sincerely appreciate all the hoops that you and your staff jumped through on my behalf.  You did a great job!

Dr. Putterman,

Luke Jebb - 17 Years Old

I’m enclosing a picture of our son, Luke, now 17.  Luke had intended to mail this photo along with the note he sent you.  At the time, we couldn’t find it!
So here he is…. Luke, in all his “glory”, feeling very “normal”, thankfully, and yes- confident.
I really mean it, Dr. Putterman, when I say you changed his life.  We are forever grateful to you and we do thank God for you.  We were praying for you, fervently, before and during the surgery.  We also prayed that Luke’s eye would heal in a very advantageous way.  We know all those prayers were answered!
So thank you for using your intelligence, vast years of experience, and surgical prowess to help our much-loved son.
So grateful,
Gwen Jebb
