FAQ’s

An oculoplastic surgeon specializes in surgery of the eyelids and orbit (tissues around the eye) and the lacrimal system (tear duct system). After medical school, a one year internship and three year residency in Ophthalmology (eye surgery) are completed. An additional two year fellowship in Oculoplastic surgery gives your surgeon the intricate knowledge of eyelid, orbital and lacrimal anatomy that is required for an optimal outcome. Dr. Hui is a board certified Ophthalmologist and a member of the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (a very select group of approximately 1,000 Oculoplastic surgeons in the United States).
Dr. Hui will meet with you personally to discuss your goals. After a review of your history and an examination, she will recommend the optimal plan for you. Dr. Hui personally performs all surgeries and cosmetic procedures (filler and Botox). We have a small close knit office, and the staff and I are in constant communication to take the best care of you possible.
Surgery may be performed in the office with local anesthesia or at an outpatient surgery center with intravenous sedation. Dr. Hui will help you determine the ideal location for your procedure after your first meeting.
In most cases, after a week of light activity (no strenuous exercise OR heavy lifting), you are able to return to your usual activities. Dr. Hui will review the recommendations for your particular procedure after she reviews your history and the treatment plan.

In most cases, patients do not take any post-operative pain medication, or Tylenol. If needed, additional pain medication may be prescribed.

Dr. Hui will examine your surgical sites and assess your healing. Any specific concerns will be addressed and post-operative care tailored to your particular needs. In most cases, dissolving sutures are used. However, if non dissolving sutures are used, she will remove those 1-2 weeks after surgery.

In some cases, insurance MAY cover some of your surgical procedures IF deemed medically necessary. Dr. Hui will evaluate your history particular case and discuss if insurance coverage may be possible.

I had a great experience. From my first office visit to my surgery I was treated with great care. Dr. Hui and her staff made me feel very comfortable and very at ease. Thank you for everything.

J.T.

I highly recommend Dr. Hui and The Eyelid Institute. The staff were welcoming, professional, caring and attentive. Dr. Hui thoroughly explained the repair to be done on my eyelid. Her work was caring, relatively painless and achieved the expected results. Recovery was straightforward – no infection and complete within the expected time frame. All together – office, exam room and procedure room, staff and Dr. Hui – my experience here was helpful and successful in staying healthy and happy.

D.R.

Two physicians recommended Dr. Hui as an outstanding oculoplastic surgeon. I am so glad I chose her to correct my drooping eyelids, a condition that made me feel and look tired. I couldn’t be happier with the results. Dr. Hui is an artist, caring, conservative in her approach, patient and a good listener. My enthusiastic recommendation is without reservation.

M.M.

My experience at The Eyelid Institute was an eye-opening one from beginning to end. Dr. Jennifer Hui and her team are courteous, agile, efficient and knowledgeable professionals, adept in patient relations and healthcare etiquette. Dr. Hui is highly personable, an effective communicator, and a skilled surgeon. I promptly understood the process, had the surgery, following their aftercare directions, and had a painless swift recovery. My EYES tell the story. If you want to SEE the difference, contact Dr. Hui.

I was referred to Dr. Hui by both my dermatologist and primary care physician. Although I was somewhat apprehensive of having a cosmetic procedure done, Dr. Hui’s experience immediately put me at east. After discussing my expectations and her plans that were well thought out, the surgery was scheduled. Thank you Dr. Hui for your skillful hands – I am absolutely thrilled with the results.
D.S.
My sight was impaired by my drooping eyelids. However, I was quite concerns about having surgery and looking “like I had eyelid surgery,” ala “Kenny Rogers.” Dr. Hui listened to my concerns and was willing to view a photo of my eyes at a younger age. She did a wonderful job of improving my eyelids and sight, without a drastic change in my appearance. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome and care by the staff.

I was referred to Dr. Hui for reconstructive surgery after Mohs surgery.  Dr. Hui is very conscientious and skilled.  No one can tell I had a big hole next to my eye; it’s amazing.  I found out she also does cosmetic procedures, and I’ve been concerned with the bags under my eyes for years.  She did the blepharoplasty for me, and I feel like a new person, no longer wanting to hide behind glasses.  Plastic surgeons do many things, but when it comes to the eyes, having a specialist was very important to me, and I’m so happy I found Dr. Hui as she really cares about doing things the right way.  I also had her some filler around my eyes and wow, what a wonderful difference, even the dark circles diminished. Thank you Dr. Hui!

Dr. Hui and Staff are Amazing! Had surgery 11/14/2019 and could not have been more satisfied. Every single staff member could not have been kinder. On top of everything, very, very caring and treat you like a member of their own family. Dr. Hui knows her craft. I believe she is a true artist! Thank each and every one of you. Hugs.

I am so incredibly grateful for Dr. Jennifer Hui! I had a very strong dose of radiation following Thyroid Cancer and both of my tear ducts became scarred over and closed shut. I was given Dr. Hui’s contact by my surgeon at Loma Linda who recommended her with the highest regard. Dr. Hui performed my left dacryocystorhinostomy this past January and my right DRC last month. Both eyes are functioning 100% normal now and you cannot even see my scar from the first surgery. I am so grateful for Dr. Hui and her very caring staff!
W.B.

Dr. Hui and her staff are exceptional! I had the best experience ever! She is very knowledgeable and helpful and her staff is very professional. I am very pleased with the results and will definitely see her again in the future.  

M.H.
My son is 3 years old, quite an active little guy, she had so much patience with my little guy; he was pretty traumatized from his last visit with another doctor. I really did appreciate her engaging with my son to calm his nerves down without feeling bothered while she was observing him on his eyes. Staff was very friendly. Thank you doctor.
J.P.
She’s the best! Did a great reconstruction of my eyelid after MOHS surgery.
W.N.

Dr. Hui’ communication is great. Dr. Hui kept me informed every step of the way. I had a basal cell removed from my lower eye lid. Being so close to my eye, I was nervous, but I felt relaxed and had 100% confidence the surgery would go well. The surgery went well and there was little to NO post op pain. The office staff are outstanding. I thank you for all you have done.

R.H.
Very pleased about my Eyelid Surgery. Great Job and such a noticeable change! I think it took 10 years off my age!
