THANK YOU LETTERS
TESTIMONIALS AND REVIEWS
Robert M., Patient
Fast forward two years later, the filler had only made my bags look worse, and friends were always asking me if I was tired, even though I had probably slept 8 hours the night before.
Dr. Stout had been recommended to me by several friends, and other doctors. Naturally I was VERY hesitant about even revisiting any sort of corrective procedure, I figured it was my fault for wanting to play with Mother Nature. Dr. Stout is simply an artist, and is so committed to his patients. I made the decision to have the surgery done, which was very minor, but I was still very scared. The procedure lasted less than an hour, and the results were almost immediate. I couldn’t believe it….There was very minimal bruising because the area under the eyes is very, very thin.
Feeling confident enough after the procedure, I asked if he would do Botox and other fillers. What a difference between Dr. Stout and the quack I had before! Dr. Stout always takes his time, takes pictures.
His office staff is just the best, and I honestly consider them extended family. Jeanine, Chantal always take the time to make you feel comfortable, and answer all your questions. Nurse Lauren is also an absolute rock star.
I’m a bit baffled by several reviews. Going back six years after the procedure expecting it to be free, is like wanting to return a car to the dealer years later.
As for bruising, as I said, the eyes are the most sensitive area on the body, thinnest skin, so depending on what you are having done, you will have bruising, no matter what doctor you go to.
I researched having the corrective procedure for almost two years, and did meticulous research. I have no hesitation recommending Dr. Stout.

First things first, Dr. Stout doesn’t need a Yelp review. His reputation and credentials are off the chart but there’s this silly notion that plastic surgeons have to be in Beverly Hills to be good. WRONG.
I started noticing my under-eye bags about 5 years ago. They always bothered me but, in the last year or so, they were really bothering me. I didn’t like photos of myself because my bags were getting so prominent. At first, I was referred to some fancy schmancy doctor in Beverly Hills who I wasn’t impressed with AT ALL. Thanks to a friend who knew the situation, they asked their dermatologist for a referral and that’s how I was lucky enough to hear about Dr. Stout. The minute I went to see him, I knew he was top-notch. His office staff was friendly and professional and his waiting room was free of chaos. I had seen his before and afters online but I got to see more while I waited and was super impressed with all I saw.
My initial consultation was awesome. Dr. Stout is humble and approachable and instantly put me at ease. The good doctor took his time and addressed all my concerns and answered all my questions. (I had never had plastic surgery so I had plenty!) I wasn’t interested in looking like the 25-year old version of myself and he completely understood this.
The day of my surgery, I got to speak to the surgical nurse, Dr. Stout, and his amazing anesthesiologist who, again, all took their time with me. They answered my concerns and calmed my nerves. I’ve been to doctors who are in a big hurry and Dr. Stout’s office is the complete opposite. It meant a lot to me that they understood and made me feel extremely confident. To me, a talented doctor with great bedside manners is a huge win-win and that’s exactly who Dr. Stout is.
For anyone who says they didn’t get the results they wanted, I have to wonder if they followed directions. Dr. Stout’s assistant gave me super detailed instructions for the week leading up to surgery as well as day-of and after care and I couldn’t be happier with the results. My results are totally natural-looking and I had zero scarring. Also, important to know, on the pain scale, I’ve had hangnails that hurt worse.
I just had my surgery 6 weeks ago and I LOVE the results. I got carded for the first time in 10 years and I’m pushing 50. If you’re serious about changing the hand Mother Nature gave you, I can’t recommend Dr. Stout highly enough!

Not only is he a perfectionist at what he does, but he truly cares about his patients and it shows. We scheduled an initial consultation within a week of calling and was able to secure an appointment. His office is filled with surgical and university accolades which gave us assurance that we had picked the right surgeon.
The whole process from consultation to day-of surgery for my mom was as smooth as they come. He made my mom feel comfortable and at ease that she had made the right decision. The surgery took a couple of hours and she was out the same day. She was given instructions for day-of care at home which we followed for her religiously.
The process like any surgery takes time and patience in order to see results and we are beyond happy with my mom’s results. She feels more confident now than ever before and it literally took years off of her face. When I ask her if she would do it again, she says in a heart beat. Thank you sooo much Dr. Stout and his amazing team for the excellent care and work you did on my mom!
Dr. Stout is the guy you want for this procedure. He is a perfectionist and his work shows his incredible surgical skills.
Fast forward a few months after my surgery and there was a tiny area on one eye that I thought needed a bit of tweaking. I made an appointment with Dr. Stout and he agreed as he is the perfectionist I mentioned above.
I was scheduled for the quick fix and I was charged zero for this correction. As expected, everything was perfect.
Dr. Stout is not only a great surgeon, he is a terrific guy and very personable and easy to talk to.
His staff Annette, Chantelle and his operating nurse are all top notch.
You are in good hands!

I also wanted a specialist, so the fact that he’s entirely focused on oculofacial surgery (e.g. not doing eye lifts in between breast augmentations, liposuction, etc.) was a big plus for me. Before my first appt. I did a fair amount of research so I knew going in that he has exceptional credentials and many happy patients.
I met with Dr. Stout in June. He listens carefully and has a way of making you feel like you are his most important patient. He didn’t push me to do additional procedures. (In fact, he told me I didn’t need under eye or brow work, even though I brought it up.)
I had my upper lid lift in July. Two months out, I’m thrilled with the results. No more eyeliner smudged all over my lids because of saggy skin. I’m getting a lot of compliments along the lines of ‘you look great’ (as opposed to ‘wow, your eyes!’ which is kind of the point). I feel like I look refreshed and maybe a bit younger, but in a subtle, natural way.
I feel so lucky to have found Dr. Stout. He is truly an artist. Clearly from my review, I recommend him without hesitation.

However, the true test of “looking natural” came from a dear friend of mine. For whatever reason, she detests it when women have their eyes done. On several occasions, she has made comments about how “almond eyes” and unnatural women look when they have their eyes done. I chose not to tell her about my eye surgery and since she lives about 3 hours away, she had no idea.
Three months after my surgery she came to visit and stay with me for several days. She mentioned a few times how youthful and pretty I looked. When I told her, I had eye surgery, she was astounded that she couldn’t tell. She even got her phone flashlight and “inspected” my eyes – it was quite funny.
You will look completely natural, well rested and more youthful. As Dr. Stout said to me, “His work goes unnoticed.

Well beyond my expectations!
I wanted to personally thank you for the exceptional results from my eyelid surgery. I had been postponing it for a few years but became tired of pushing up my droopy eyelids to read. My wife recommended that I consult with you and my fears were alleviated. Your explanation of how the surgery would be performed what to expect in the following weeks was extremely comforting. To my amazement, the surgical incisions were completely hidden in my eyelid crease.
Your entire staff was warm and professional. All follow up questions were answered in detail by your Surgical Coordinator. The only drawback is I am having a hard time getting my senior citizens discount, so I need to have my driver’s license to prove my age.

I went to Dr. Stout for a condition on my eyelids, plus I was ready for an eye lift. He removed the fat deposits on my eyelids and then did the most beautiful upper and lower lid eye lift. I look 20 years younger and you would never know I had surgery.
He is a skillful surgeon, a perfectionist and an artist, which is a wonderful combination when you are having surgery on any part of your face. Also, Dr. Stout makes takes time to talk to you about your needs and is incredibly attentive. You never feel rushed or like he has something else to do or somewhere else to be.
I feel really lucky to have found him, having searched and interviewed quite a few different eye surgeons from Beverly Hills to Pasadena. He’s as a good as it gets.
I highly recommend him.

My dermatologist recommended him as the go-to guy when I said I wanted to get rid of my droopy lids and under-eye bags but did not want to look like those women who have had their lids pulled so tight that they look permanently surprised. From my first appointment and through every step of the process, Dr. Stout and his staff were caring and professional. Dr. Stout took the time to answer all my questions and understand my individual needs. Since he specializes in eyes, he knows exactly how to tailor the surgery to make you look natural and return your eyes to the way they looked before they started drooping.
Shortly after the surgery I started getting many compliments and people commented on how much my daughter and I look alike, which is a huge compliment indeed. If you are looking for beautiful, natural results, a doctor with a great bedside manner, and an attentive staff, I highly recommend Dr. Stout.
manners”!!! Dr. Stout’s staff is fantastic. Chantal and Annette were wonderful.I highly recommend Dr Stout for under eye and upper lid surgery.
