Dr. Jelks was listed as a top doctor in the New York Times Eyelid Lift category in a reference article on Beauty’s Best in the United States.
Dr. Glenn W. Jelks,

Considered New York’s premier eyelid expert, Jelks has done some 5,000 blepharoplasties. His “no touch” lower-lid technique, where the muscles are tightened and repositioned but not cut, causes fewer complications, he believes. Jelks is board-certified in both plastic surgery and ophthalmology.
Experts were polled, from doctors to nutritionists, from makeup artists to beauty editors, in an effort to separate the wheat from the chaff. Doctors’ board certifications were checked, and state medical boards confirmed that there were no past or pending malpractice suits. But since it is not possible to sample everyone’s expertise firsthand, caveat emptor.
