BOTOX® Cosmetic

Everyone was very nice, knowledgeable, and seem to really listen and care about my concerns.

Eyelid Surgery

The doctor spent a good amount of time with me. He explained the surgery steps, incision locations, etc. He looked at my face and showed me in a mirror what the procedures could accomplish.

Eyelid Surgery

Over the past year or so I started to notice (age 59) not so pretty bags under my eyes that gave me a look of being tired all the time. Every so often a co-workers would come into my office and say "Didn't you get enough sleep last night?.... that was it for me. It was time to make that call to the facial plastic surgeon of whose name was on a building that I had driven by for years. Whenever my husband was in the car with me I'd say I'm going to meet that man some day and my husband would just roll his eyes. Guess what dear that day has arrived. Everyone I came in contact with at Dr. Balikian's office including Dr. B were so inviting and had very friendly personalities. Dr. Balikian was very informative and spoke in terms I could understand which put me at ease. I could go on and on about how happy I was that I chose Dr. Balikian to give me some of my youthful look back. As a matter of fact I have since been back for fillers and botox and love it.


The facility is very clean, modern and private.
