I was highly satisfied because of the friendliness of the staff and the doctor. I felt very comfortable. I felt the procedure and expectations were carefully explained. I also was relieved that no pressure to do more procedures that the one I was requesting information on were brought up.

Injectable Fillers

Dr. Balikian always takes the time to learn what my needs are. [Single best thing is...] He is always open about giving me his opinion!

Lip Enhancement

Dr. Balikian always does a wonderful job. His experience and expertise is so appreciated. He never over does any fillers. They've always looked natural, and they've always lasted longer than the information says they will. [Single best thing is...] I feel more confident not having the pencil thin lips time had given me. I ran into a friend less than two weeks after the filler (she doesn't know it get injectables) and she immediately exclaimed 'you look so young!' That's the exact result I wanted!
