Dr. was very thorough in explanation upon initial consultation and I left feeling confident and informed. The procedure went smoothly and with little discomfort. The results are fantastic and more than I hoped for. Finally, both Dr. and staff are caring, engaging and professional. I’m very pleased.


Before my consultative I was feeling quite hopeless and a bit disfigured from the accident. Dr. Balikian was sure he could change all for me. At this time I cannot breathe out of my nose. It has been so annoying and disruptive especially at night. I left his office so hopeful that all will change after my procedure Sept 24th. Thank you for you empathy in my consultation. I'm looking forward to Sept 24th.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

It was safe with everyone wearing masks. I was seen right away and Dr. Balikian did an excellent job as always. I looked better!


Everybody at the facility were so amazing and kind. Dr. Balikian is the best Plastic Surgeon and I honestly don't think anyone could have done a better job. I use to be so self conscience about my nose and hated my side profile and now all I hear is how perfect my nose is. I am beyond ecstatic with my results and no longer care if I'm being stared at.

Dr. Balikian was very knowledgeable and placed the Botox exactly where I needed it. He lowered a brow that was too arched to balance my face. Very pleased.

After performing significant research and other consultations, I met Dr. Bilikian and felt his high energy and intelligence right away. He was approachable to talk with and made me feel comfortable. I even referred my friend to him for services too. The staff is also very pleasant and professional.

Scar Revision

Dr. Balikian was able to take the time to assess the scar on my face and thoroughly explain the procedure and outcome. I was happy that he took his time to discuss my concerns and give me the answers I was needing.
