Are you a patient of Houtan Chaboki, MD?
The upper part of my left ear was nearly destroyed by an infection. Dr. C used MY OWN cartilage, skin and fat not only to close the HUGE hole in my ear, but to make my ear look perfectly normal!! No one can believe how good it looks!! Dr. C is an incredibly skilled surgeon who is interested in the total health and well being of his patients. If anyone even has a question they need answered by someone they can completely trust, call Dr. C.
Once I knew I had a devited septum, I had it repaired which made it easier to sleep. I suffered for many years with not being able to sleep on my back since it felt like I was suffocating so the surgery improved my quality of life. Also, due to my ENT in DC, he referred me to an allergist prior to my surgery and again I found out that I was allergic to many things and that I had asthma. I am also being treated for those 2 conditions which has improved my quality of life. I would highly recommend going to a doctor if you think you have a medical condition so it can be treated.
I only visited Dr. Chaboki. I never saw any other surgeons, even though he encouraged me to do so. I felt at ease with Dr. Chaboki. Before my procedure, I was looking for someone who had a conservative approach to surgery and who wasn't going to give me a nose, like every other nose. Dr. Chaboki met my expectations and I felt that I didn't need to look any further. He is also a trained ENT physician, so in addition to his facial plastic surgery expertise, he has a solid understanding of the medical needs related to the nose. This was another draw to Dr. Chaboki. Dr. Chaboki is a very calm and attentive physician. His work is meticulous and he is extremely skilled. I had a lot of work done on my nose and nobody recognized that I had done anything different to my face. I believe that this is the hallmark of an excellent surgeon. While waiting in pre-op, several of his staff members came and told me about their /or their family member's experiences with Dr. Chaboki's work. They were all impressed by his skill, especially to use closed surgical techniques.
I highly recommend Dr. Chaboki. I had cheek augmentation performed by him this summer and I love the results so far (I'm about 2 months post op). I went to a few different consultations and chose Dr. Chaboki for several reasons: 1) he was the most thorough and confident in his examination of my face and what would look good, 2) other surgeons seemed a bit more "gimmicky", more Hollywood, and more focused on sales than on their medical expertise, and 3) he had extensive, extremely positive reviews online from other patients. I'm so happy that I chose wisely!
It has been one month since my Rhinoplasty procedure and my experience with Dr. Chaboki has been wonderful. He has been kind and helpful through my Rhinoplasty journey. During my first consultation, Dr. Chaboki answered any questions that I had and did not try to speed me out of his office. I really appreciated his humble personality and professionalism. He showed me what I could and couldn't do with my surgery and was very realistic. He also used 3D imaging to show me what my nose could potentially look like. After a few visits, I scheduled my procedure. This was my first time having any kind of surgery. Before my surgery, Dr. Chaboki met with me and reassured me everything was going to be fine. My surgery went well and I had no pain during my entire recovery process. He gave me his personal cell phone number incase if I had any problems. I only had a few questions, but he answered all of my phone calls right away. His nurse Irma and office manager Star have also been great. His staff is vey kind. I would highly recommend Dr. Chaboki for any facial plastic surgery needs. I am very pleased with my results so far. I still look like me, but better! If I could do it all over again, I would still choose Dr. Chaboki.
Best facial plastic surgeon in DC area
Dr. Houtan Chaboki is one of the top doctors in his field. He is highly skilled, being a board certified facial plastic surgeon as well as a certified ENT specialist. His work is pretty close to perfect and the results are far better than I even hoped for. He really takes time with his patients to explain the procedure, the results, the follow-up, and answer any questions related to the procedure. He is a caring, smart, skilled surgeon whom I highly recommend. He even gave me his cell phone to call in case I needed him after the surgery. How many doctors do that these days? You can't go wrong with Dr. Chaboki.
I loved my experience with Dr. Chaboki and would recommend him to every single person I could. He was thorough, kind, accessible, and patient. Altering your face is a scary proposition, but I had complete faith and trust in Dr. Chaboki, and I was not disappointed. I never doubted my choice of surgeon, and after I saw the result, I had even more faith in him than before. I had a great experience and I would highly recommend him to anyone needing nasal surgery.
