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!
