I had a very positive experience at Dr. Balikian’s office. There was absolutely no pressure regarding any of the options discussed, and Dr. Balikian displayed a confident, reassuring demeanor. I received injections of some fillers. The procedure was virtually painless, and I was pleased with the result.

Getting a full facelift and nose reduction is a nerve wracking decision. I got soooo fortunate to find Dr Balikian. He is skilled beyond my expectations. A very conscientious and gifted surgeon with excellent instincts on delivering a natural yet stunning result. I cannot say enough good about him and his exceptional team. I have zero hesitation giving the entire Balikian group five stars plus++++++

After years of hating my nose I finally decided to do something about it. I heard Dr. Balikian was the best in Murrieta. I went to him for my chin lipo as well (I also did a review for this). Everyone at his office is very friendly and make you feel as comfortable as possible. My surgery was on Monday so this is two days post op in photo. I’ll post more after cast and stitches are removed

I always have a great experience when I come to Dr Balikian’s office. Joann does my Botox and she is very good. And she makes great suggestions without pushing you to buy too many units. She really wants you to be happy and doesn’t rush the procedure. Everyone in the office is so nice and helpful. I would recommend it for sure.

So far I have only had a virtual consultation with Doctor Balikian. Basing this review on first impressions, I will say I am overly excited to learn more about the procedures we discussed. Doctor Balikian appears to be very professional. What I appreciated most was his honesty and not trying to push additional work just to have it done. I have concerns regarding excessive eyelid skin and he was very thorough to explain what he recommends and what is not necessary to achieve the results I am looking for. Thank you again and I’m sure I will be meeting you in person soon!

I was tired of looking tired all the time. I mainly did his for myself so that when I look in the mirror I don’t feel sad. Now I feel like my outside matches my inside. I would do it all over again. My doctor was amazing and his staff professional and supportive. Dr. Balikian answered all my questions and was truthful. The surgery room was inviting and cozy. Afterwards I was sent home with everything I good possible need. Actually I was given my aftercare products and prescriptions at my pre-op appointment. My brother drove me and we stayed all night in a local hotel that was super close.

I had a neck lift combined with two other procedures. My experience was overall positive. I’m satisfied with the outcome. Watching the healing process was scary. I was worried that swelling and bruising wouldn’t heal completely, but it did in time. Dr. Balikian did a good job.

I’ve been going to Dr. Balikian for years and wouldn’t go anywhere else. Don’t shop around for a deal, shop around for experience and you will see this is the place to come. I’m always greeted by name and welcomed with a smile. I don’t tell him what I need because he immediately knows just by looking at me. He does not push product or overdue what is actually needed. He is a minimalist and his work shows the perfection.

I was really apprehensive because I’d never considered this type of procedure. But I was so pleasantly surprised how comfortable the staff and doctor made me feel. They were informative and professional while still making me feel at ease. No pressure at all. Fantastic experience!

Joann the nurse here at Dr Balikian office has been absolutely amazing. I have been going to her for over 2 years now. She has been doing my Botox religiously. This past month I asked her to recommend a treatment or laser for my skin. Turning 44 I wanted to help give my skin a boost. She recommended the Triniti. A 3 in one treatment for tightening, wrinkles and age spots. It’s perfect for treating all 3 things in one session. She also recommended some soft fillers. It’s been over a month now and I look and feel better than ever. I would’ve never known about the fillers and what they could do, she’s like a magician. Im grateful to have found her and her expertise.

So now that it’s been over 3 months here’s the current status. There’s no more hard tissue. I’m thinking this will be the last update as I don’t see it going down anymore. I have been on a diet since early December so I’m sure I’ll lose more fat in that area. I’ll also be doing chin fillers sometime next month. Overall I think dr Balikian did an amazing job and I’m very happy with the results. I no longer have a huge ugly double chin that I hated. It’s nice and flat.

Cool Sculpting on my tummy and thighs……what an amazing difference! I absolutely love the fact that this was a non-surgical procedure that produced results! The staff is very friendly and professional. I worked with Misty and she’s absolutely the best. She answered all my questions about the procedures and put my mind at ease. If you’re looking for a clean, trustworthy place, with friendly and professional staff for your cosmetic needs, this is the place for you! I highly recommend them!

This was my first time going to Dr. Balikian. I felt comfortable from the moment I walked in the door. The receptionist was warm and friendly and I didn’t have to wait very long before the nurse took me back and spent time talking to me making me feel at ease and getting me water before Dr. Balikian came in. He was extremely nice and was very thorough in explaining all the options, benefits and what I could and could not expect. I appreciated his honesty. I went in for a consultation and ended up having the procedure. I will definitely go back for future procedures.

I have been going to Dr. Balikian for over ten years. I am so thankful that he is in our area as he is the absolute best. He never tries to talk you into doing anything and takes time to listen and do what is best for you and your budget. I can’t be more happy with the results that I’ve had with fillers and botox. His staff is great as well.

I was devastated after being botched by another surgeon last year. I was more self conscious of my nose than ever for a whole year until it was time to start looking for someone to do my revision.
I went on a few different consultations but decided on Dr. Balikian. He was very honest about what he could and couldn’t do. He also set real expectations so we had a mutual understanding of the goal. I felt I could trust him since he specializes in faces and noses. He has a warm, professional and kind demeanor that made my feel I could trust him. But the deciding factor was how much Dr. Balikian seemed genuinely excited about fixing my nose.
Surgery went well and so did the healing. I’m now 4 weeks post op and I love it already. The pictures speak for themselves. I think my nose looks beautiful and am very impressed with how much better Dr. Balikian made my nose look. I feel like he gave me my life and confidence back. I’m no longer embarrassed when I go out in public. I’m no longer self conscious about my side profile and nostril show. I like how my nose looks when I look in the mirror and feel confident about my nose for the first time in my life. I’m will forever be grateful for Dr. Balikian fixing my nose and making it beautiful. He is truly a wonderful surgeon.

All I can say is WOW! If you had told me a year ago that I would undergo surgery and have a lower facelift, necklift, rhinoplasty, upper and lower blepharoplasty and full face fat transfer- AND all at the same time- I would’ve said you were crazy!! But 6 weeks ago, that’s exactly what Dr. Balikian did for me. I am so thrilled with my results that I can hardly express how I feel! I have hated my neck for 15 years and as I’ve aged, have watched my face lose volume and looked so tired all the time. I didn’t feel like myself any more, but I was afraid I would look like a fake “wind blown Barbie” woman! Until I found Dr. Balikian. His expertise, eye for details, and commitment to natural and refreshed results for his patients had me hooked from the first day I saw his work. He is a true artist and genuinely cares for his patients and their concerns and the final result of each procedure. I look 20 years younger and just like ME! Good-bye to my grandma’s neck and tired eyes! The bump on the top of my nose that I hated is now gone and is now a refined nose that just looks like a perfect fit for my face. It’s amazing! My total “down time” was about 10 days, before I went back to work, and I was really surprised at how little pain I felt and was managed mostly with Tylenol. The stuffy nose for 2 weeks drove me nuts, but, Hey! Who hasn’t had a bad cold for that long? I got a beautiful nose at the end of it so who cares? 🙂 All of this to encourage anyone considering any of these procedures to please see Dr. Richard Balikian for a complimentary consultation. Put your face, and trust, in the very best hands! I’m so happy that I did!

From the moment I called, the staff was incredibly warm welcoming and listened to everything that I was interested in having done. On the day of my visit, the staff was friendly the office was beautiful and the chicken was quick. Dr. Balikian Is so sweet and very knowledgeable and is honest to tell you what he recommends, working with your face in individual needs And cautious not to do too much at one time. He gave me filler under my eyes for my hollowing and wow! I had Voluma done before by someone else and saw no results. This time he used Vollure And the way he did it was perfect, using enough to fill in the Halloween without looking lumpy. I am so pleased with the results and thank him for his incredible expertise. We are talking about our faces, after all. They are the first thing people see so it’s incredibly important to trust the person who is working on your face! So thanks again Dr Balikian and your expertise. I will be seeing you again!

Dr. Balikian, I just want to write you a personal thank you for the amazing job you did on my nose, and confidence! It took me five years of researching, and consults with other doctors, until I finally found you! After meeting with you one time, and seeing your amazing before and after photos, I knew you were the man for the job. This has been an amazing experience and I have you, and your beautiful staff to thank. I love walking into your office to all of those beautiful smiles. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Before I met Dr. Balikian, I was very self-conscious about myself. My skin was damaged from the sun and tanning beds. I decided to talk to Dr. Balikian. He is such a phenomenal doctor. He knew what my problems were right away and was very upfront and honest about what treatment was right for me. I was so proud and grateful after the healing was done. Now everybody tells me how great I look
