Dr Zarrabi is the nicest, kindest surgeon that you could ever ask for. He did the surgery and I was blown away by the results. He performed a miracle an took away the ugly wobbling skin on my neck and I look at least 10 years younger. He is truly the surgeon I would recomment to all my friends and family and I already decided that he will also do a breast reduction, thigh lift and arm lift on me in the near future. Dr Zarrabi is the only surgeon that I will trust from now on, to do these kind of procedures on me. Highly professional and an excellent plastic and reconstructive surgeon. Thank you, Dr. Zarrabi!!!!

Dr. Zarrabi and his staff made this whole process so easy and simple I couldn't have asked for a better team to work with. From the day of my consultation I instantly felt warm and like they were there for my best interest. Which is more than I can say for the doctor who did my initial Augmentation (he was not Dr. Zarrabi). During my consultation Dr. Zarrabi walked me through all the possible solutions to fix my over sized, high rise breasts. He even told me things about my boobs I didn't even notice! We were able to work together and come up with a plan where we would both be happy and satisfied with my breasts. My main concern of course was that I am 24 years old and don't want to end up with saggy boobs that I can throw over my shouders. He assured me that he wouldn't let that happen and with his kind words and previous knowledge I felt confident that he wouldn't let that happen. By the time I had the pre-op appointment, the staff in his office felt like my friends and like people who would be nothing but supportive of me during this nerve wrecking change. Dr. Zarrabi was again very knowledgable and answered all of my 10,000 questions that I came prepared with. I was at this point more confident than ever that he had my best interest in mind. The day of surgery came very quickly and that morning I had my mother with me in the office. Everyone immediately made her feel calmer and when she met Dr. Zarrabi and listened to him she said she instantly felt better. The staff was by my side every step of the way. They talked me through the process and what they were doing. They even laughed at my terrible jokes to make me feel more at ease. When I was woken up from the surgery I instantly felt a difference. I wasn't in pain and my back felt lighter. I thought the days to come were going to be painful and scary but honestly they were fine. Dr. Zarrabi and the anesthesiologist both called me to make sure I was doing well. They answered all the questions I had. When I didn't answer the anesthesiologist's phone call he immediately called my emergency contact (my mom) to make sure I was okay. It's that kind of follow up that is so important in situations like this. It really made me appreciate my Doctor team. I am so happy with the results and couldn't be more thankful for Dr. Zarrabi, Nurse Mary and the rest of the staff. Because of them I have my confidence back and my back, neck and shoulders are even more thankful! And just for the record... they made sure my breasts look like 24 years young breasts and not like 80 year old sand bags... and for that I am ever grateful.

You get the best of both worlds with Dr. Michael Zarrabi. Not only is he a skilled and knowledgeable surgeon, he also has a wonderful bedside manner. He spent time during my initial consultation going over different options, what the procedure entailed, and what the expected outcome would be. On my follow-up visit, he took the time to answer all of my questions and addressed all of my concerns. He made me feel safe and comfortable and the outcome of my surgery was exceptional. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Zarrabi to my friends and family.

Dr. Zarrabi is an excellent doctor. I would recommend him to anyone in my family and my friends. I had breast reduction and tummy tuck and had no pain with either one and recovered very quickly. I received excellent care from Dr. Zarrabi and his staff. He explained everything in detail before and after surgery. He made me feel really comfortable with the whole procedure.

Dr. Zarrabi is very passionate about his work and patients. He listens carefully and offers his professional but honest opinion about the after affects and results of a procedure. Immediately after meeting him at the consultation, I knew he was not the type of doctor that was only concerned with billing me and not my overall appearance.

I am very happy with my results. The healing process was very quick it's not as painful as what people think it is. I've lost 5 inches from my stomache and I've lost 25 pounds since my surgery and I'm still losing weight. I honestly recommend this procedure to anyone who wants to achieve quick results.
