Richard Balikian, MD Reviews (125)

Face Lift

Dr Balikian and his staff are/were very professional, informative, and nice. They all put me at ease before my procedure by answering all questions and explaining everything thoroughly, including pre-op and post-op procedures. Dr Balikian took the time to explain everything in an understandable manner. He showed great interest in all my questions and instilled in me complete trust in him before and after the surgery. He has great bedside manner as he saw me before my surgery to make sure I felt comfortable and to discuss any last minute concerns. I would definitely recommend him for any facial procedure. The single thing is that it turned out as well as it did and I did not have complications. I did however, follow every instruction to a t as I wanted to do my part to make this procedure successful.

Rhinoplasty

My nose looks great :). I felt after the surgery there was no follow up or concern from Doctor.

Face Lift

I'm mostly highly satisfied with my outcome, which makes me highly satisfied with everything else. The staff is wonderful, especially Misty, Erin, and the PA, and the receptionist. As sweet as girls as you would want to meet.

I knew what I wanted done. a friend had had work done here and she looked good. That is why I chose this doctor.

Eyelid Surgery

Face Lift

I was very happy about Dr. background in neck/head surgery, a huge +, but did not know this until I read the materials after leaving the office.Very informative. Information was very well explained by all I spoke with.

Botox Cosmetic

Almost complete elimination of forehead wrinkles. Had left eyebrow drop after procedure. Came in and had more done to try and "lift" the eyebrow, which did not work. It has worn off since then and it WAS my first visit. Dr. Balikian made notes so that we can avoid this in the future. I will try again however. It may take a time or two for the doctor to get to know how my reaction will be to this procedure.

Ear Surgery

Friendly staff and very thorough

Eyelid Surgery

The whole process was exceptional, I am the type of person who experiences a high level of anxiety, and he and his nurse put me to ease, they are wonderful. Dr Balikian is highly skilled and treats his patients with the utmost respect and care. In addition, I am in awe of the outcome, I could not be happier, he exceeded my expectations. I would not trust anyone else but him. It gave me more vibrancy and confidence, I do not look tired and I can go without make up and don't mind if I take pictures without my sunglasses like before. It gave me a better outlook on my appearance to feel good inside and out!
