As a medical doctor myself, I understand that not all doctors are alike. For years, I wanted to get my “heavy” upper eyelids done, as with age they only get worse. The main concern I had was not looking like I had my eyes done. I only wanted to have them look normal. It wasn’t until I saw a friend who looked different (better), but I didn’t know why. She told me that she had her upper eyelids done. I knew then that this was the doctor. I checked out Dr. Iyengar’s other work and his credentials. Everything I saw was top tier. I had my eyes done in his Encinitas office in July 2020, and it went better than I thought. The doctor was great and reassuring, and his staff were all friendly and helpful. It was all overall a very easy experience. After a few weeks, my eyes were looking near “normal”, just as I wanted. It’s almost 2 months now, and I couldn’t be happier. I have now had a few people ask me what’s different, and said, “why do you look younger”. I smiled (and told them). I am SO glad I did this, and most of all, I am happy that I chose Dr. Iyengar.

As a fellow eye surgeon, I am particular about who I send my family to. Having researched many surgeons in California, I had my parents come down from Los Angeles to have eyelid surgery with Dr. Iyengar. We could not be more pleased with the experience and results. He strives for a natural appearance when doing cosmetic eyelid surgery. Something we greatly appreciate. We would highly recommend Dr. Iyengar!

Dr. Iyengar was able to see her very quickly and assured us that he was familiar with this and not to worry. Everything was explained in advance and he and his entire staff were very professional and caring. Surgery went well and the outcome was perfect.

Dr. Iyengar and his staff were awesome, friendly, informative and did not rush me out of there, even though I didn't have an appointment. I would highly recommend this office to anyone with an eyelid issue!

Dr. Iyengar is a very caring, gentle professional who gave me complete confidence in his skill and ability to achieve the best possible outcome for me.

Dr. Iyengar is fantastic and his choice of staff and surgery centers are all exceptional. He thoroughly explains and is willing to discuss options. In fact, he is a perfectionist in all ways. His professional mannerisms remind one of the days when physicians took the time to answer questions and explain procedures. Highly recommend him for any necessary surgery. When we did my follow up, he found my issue with peripheral vision could have been from a cyst on the underside of my left eyelid. He immediately removed it with no pain and vision improved dramatically. One to One Lasik referred me to Dr. Iyengar and I am very pleased. He even showed things to my husband both before and after surgery without any hesitation. He is willing and able to work with his patients to ensure a great outcome as well as full understanding.

I am a retired Ophthalmic Plastic Surgeon, and I have had the honor and privilege of knowing Dr. Iyengar since his training days at the prestigious USC Medical Center in Los Angeles. He remains professionally active and lectures frequently to both surgeons in training, as well as to established Eyelid Surgeons. Dr. Iyengar is an exemplary Eyelid Surgeon, and I have referred him scores of patients since the inception of his practice. In fact, I, myself, recently had a non-surgical eyelid problem that Dr. Iyengar treated promptly and effectively! I will continue to refer patients to my highly-respected and distinguished colleague, and I recommend him with highest respect to anyone in need of eyelid surgery!
