I will always trust Dr. N. I went and saw him about doing a facial procedure 10 years ago. I would have completely regretted it, had I done it. Well, he actually talked me out of it, when other dr's were happy to do the procedure, regardless of whether it was the best thing for me. Because of this, and because of his obvious care to each and every patient, I would not even hesitate to recommend him.

I recently had a consultation at Dr. N's office. From the momment I walked in the door everyone was very warm and friendly. I met with Julie Legman for the consultation. She instantly put me at ease. She listened to my concerns and offered advice. Since then I returned for Radiesse and Botox with Sharon...whom was also excellent in advice and in what she does. This was my first experience with any procedure so I was a bit nervous. Their knowledge and warmth put me at ease. I would highly recommend them to anyone I know. I believe they are truly concerned for your health and a positive outcome for you. I haven't met

I had extensive work done on my "turkey neck" a fat transfer under my eyes and lower face lift and the procedure was great!

Monika at Dr. Naficy's office in Bellevue is AMAZING! She's excellent at injections and extremly careful. She made sure I was comfortable and knew what to expect from the procedure as well as afterward. This was my very first time having anything done to my face and she was very patient and understanding. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER TO ANYONE. Also the entire team at Dr. Naficy is great.

I had an unbelievably positive experience with Dr. Naficy. From the moment I walked into his office on the day of my consultation I was given nothing less than his full attention, years of experience, and wealth of knowledge. He listened to my concerns, answered my questions, and created a plan based on my individual needs. I would recommend Dr. Naficy to anyone who is looking for a highly-skilled surgeon who not only knows what he's doing, but does what he does with compassion and care.

Dr Naficy and his staff are professional, knowledgeable, and helpful. The outcome of my cosmetic nose surgery is a very natural look including actual improvement in breathing function. Compared to before I had the surgery, my nose is now definitely more elegant! I am extremely happy that I had Dr Naficy perform my rhinoplasty.
Posted by StaceyLJ
The staff were friendly and I have no complaints about the facility. It's great. Naficy has a good rep. He didn't inject me though. The injector was not experienced in under eye injections (in my opinion) because she didn't improve my appearance. I paid $525.00 for pouches under my eyes and bluish masses where the product is. I waited 2 months for the swelling to go down and just went in yesterday to have some acid injected to eat up some of the filler to reduce the bulges. It was an expensive lesson.

I'm so thrilled with the results of my face and neck lift. Thank you so much to Dr. Naficy and his staff.

Dr. Naficy's office is professional yet kind and friendly. Dr. Naficy has a wonderful "bedside manner," and explained everything to me. The follow-up care was amazing. I have continued to use the office for other treatments and highly recommend this practitioner.

I'm giving Dr. Sam Naficy 5 stars on my rhinoplasty because he's so sweet and intelligent. He said he's real pleased with how the surgery came out and so far I am in agreement with him. He doesn't rush during surgery like how others just want their beds filled and then booted soon afterwards. It's clear that he looks at your nose as a goal that he wants to succeed in. He has good listening skills, I told him once that I did not want my nose lifted after he suggested a slight lift and he reminded me before I could even get a chance to remind him the day of surgery! The whole surgery center staff were so competent in their abilities making me feel so comfortable.

I've had 3 other plastic surgeries and this was by far the best in every way! My Case was a nose revision and was very difficult but Dr. Naficy was so skilled that my results 1 year out are better than anyone could have imagined. His office staff and follow up were also friendly and responsive. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone. I wouldn't see any other surgeon and feel lucky to have found such a great plastic surgeon!

Great overall experience and very happy with the outcome. Had a few problems with billing, but other than that everything was done very professionally and to my liking. I'm glad that I took care of this when I did. Dr. Naficy is very down to earth and truly cares about his patients.

Everything went so smoothly, from the initial consult with Dr. Naficy and Julie L, through the surgery, post-op care, and follow up visits. All procedures (brow lift, fat transfer, full face laser resurfacing) were explained in great detail; there were no surprises. I cannot say enough about how calming and reassuring Dr Naficy is...not to mention amazing at what he does. His entire staff is professional, yet very warm and friendly; all of my questions were always answered promptly, and no question was too silly.

I researched other top Dr.'s in area and met with he and his staff and really felt confident in his ability to make me look "naturally younger". He succeeded beyond my dreams! Dr. Naficy specilizes in "faces" basically and that was also a huge factor for me! Also his bio.
Posted by Gmom
I researched two years for the right doctor for my brow/face/neck lift with lipo, lower bleph, fat grafting and laser resurfacing. I looked at the before and after photos which are so important to show a doctor's work. I was amazed at Dr. Naficy's credentials and chose him. We decided together on what was necessary to give me the best outcome. When I healed, I changed hairstyle, had my brows manicured and looked 20 years younger.

I have had a wonderful experience in dealing with Dr. Naficy and all of his staff! From the very first contact to the surgery and following up with me afterward, Dr. Naficy and his staff have all been so nice and friendly and made me feel so comfortable and at ease with everything. I now have a newfound confidance, thanks to Dr. Naficy. I couldn't be happier with the whole process!

I had a wonderful experience at Naficy, my stitches are gone and I am healing great. I am soooo happy with the results and you can hardly tell I had anything removed from the area, it looks FABULOUS : ) Thank you and Thank Dr. Naficy for him, he ROCKS!

My experience at Naficy with Maria was outstanding! She exceeded my expectations... she was informative, thorough, gentle and just lovely! I would recommend anyone to your beautiful office. The rest of your staff were delightful as well. I look forward to visiting you again.
Posted by Lady Snowdon
Dr. Naficy is a highly skilled plastic surgeon who in my opinion does some of the finest work in his field. He is subtle in his approach to beauty and truly does give you a “natural” facelift. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Dr. Naficy and his delightful team.

I have been going to Dr. Naficy for 6 years. Dr Naficy and his staff are very professional, have great advice, and make me feel very comfortable to ask any questions I have. Have tried restalyne, botox, now using juvederm. I also had a chin liposuction 6 years ago and it still looks amazing. Would definitely recommend! Making the call was the hardest part but once I did - I was immediately put at ease!

II highly recommend the staff at Naficy Plastic Surgery & Rejuvenation Center. I highly recommend Libby Bauman, RN. Libby is gentle, professional and has an excellent and calming approach to procedures. The environment is sophisticated and welcoming. I have been a patient for several years and I have visited other clinics and medi-spa’s. Nothing compares to this center.

I was referred to Dr. Naficy by a friend who had a procedure done by Dr. Naficy. I was impressed by the job he did (and I'm picky!) - and so made an appointment with him for a consultation. He was very warm, professional, knowledgable, however I chose to wait on that particular procedure at that time, (will in the future...) but, in the meantime I've had several opportunities to talk to Julie, and have had some minor procedures done with with Maria. The whole staff is really wonderful... professional, friendly... you feel like you're in the right place, As for Maria... she's great!! Clearly skilled, professional, and very patient.. I started out highly anxious, but she was able to alleviate that through her reassurance, confidence. She always does a great job - and it's comforting to me that I can "let go" and trust her.

I saw Sharon Wells for Botox and Restylane. Sharon is excellent! The facility is easy to find and easy to get in and out of. I traveled from the East Coast to Seattle to visit family – but the main reason was to have a chance to see Sharon for some refreshers! Thank you!

I chose Dr. Naficy based on his experience and reputation, previous patient reviews, and the level of attention I received when dealing with him and his Staff. I felt at ease with Dr. Naficy after my first appointment. From the moment I contacted Dr. Naficy's office, I was pleased with the level of service I was given. Dr. Naficy's Staff are courteous, professional, and always a pleasure to work with. Dr. Naficy took time to answer all my questions and address my concerns. I felt confident and comfortable before the procedure took place and the Staff could not have been more caring. Dr. Naficy transformed my nose into a beautiful, more feminine nose and I couldn't be more happy with the results. Choosing Dr. Naficy was the best decision I could have made!

My sister researched him. From start to finish, Starting with Julie, she was sweet, great listener, and asked a lot of questions! I was taken care of. Dr. Naficy listened to my reservations and prior experiences and made my life better by taking the time in every facet. He has the best manner for his craft. He is patient, thoughtful, and all about the details. The office staff were professional, they were experts, they were caring. They were exactly what a office of that caliber should be and other offices could learn from them. I wished I hadn't returned to my doctor prior to Dr. Naficy. Naficy recognized what my True wishes were with my asthetic and functionailty.

I had only superior service and felt that Dr. Naficy was absolutely the best at his craft. I did a lot of research before hand relative to certification, reputation and his educational credentials. He was the best I could find by far. After speaking about my perception with Dr. Naficy, I felt comfortable and confident in my decision. Dr. Naficy is an expert medically, artistically, and also understands individual needs. I am very pleased one year later. Dr. Naficy did not talk me into the procedure... rather he helped me understand possible outcomes and concerns along with pushing a bias I had by helping me evolve a more pragmatic perspective.

Dr. Naficy did a wonderful job with the laser resurfacing of my face and the fat injections to my eyes. I couldn't be happier with the results. He was professional and helpful, listening to what I was hoping to achieve and then using his expertise to not only suggest some solutions, but also intuitively knowing just what to do to achieve those results in the surgery to improve my face without making me look like someone else. Overall, I felt everyone who works at Naficy Clinic itself were very professional and went above and beyond to make the whole experience, which could have been quite frightening, into a comfortable safe-feeling procedure.

Dr. Naficy is an absolute master at his profession. He is calm, kind, he listens, he does not rush you through the consult, he personally replies to emails (but don't bombard him with questions!). I provided him with photo reference of noses that I liked and I feel like he absorbed and truly considered the reference to create my results - which makes me really happy. Obviously this means that he understood the kind of aesthetics that I was after and did his best to integrate them into my face. As mentioned above in my review, please do not hesitate to place your face (and hard earned money) in the hands of this surgeon. He will NOT disappoint you. Absolutely phenomenal doctor. If you are considering ANY procedure with Dr. Naficy, please do not hesitate - he truly is a gifted surgeon and you will not regret it. It will be the best money you ever invested in yourself.

Realself website. I spent many many hours researching rhinoplasty. I feel blessed that I found Dr. Naficy and decided to pick him to get my nose done. What an amazing doctor he is! He listen to all my concerns and now I am very happy with the outcome and how I look now. I can not thank Dr. Naficy enough.

I attended one of Dr. Naficy's seminars about facial surgery and injectables several years ago. I am so glad I made the decision to proceed with the surgery and would definitely recommend Dr. Naficy. He is a true artist of the face. His nursing staff and office assistants are very pleasant, kind and professional.

Read reviews on many doctors via computer. He sounded like a top-notch surgeon. My experience with Dr. Naficy and all his staff has been phenomenal! He is an artist in every aspect and his attention to detail is perfection. I have had so many compliments on the beauty of my skin. People are not believing that I am 65 years old. He is a master at what he does, and his staff is kind, considerate and sensitive to every need.

If you are considering this procedure, I would definitely recommend that you schedule a consultation with Dr. Naficy. He and his staff are very professional and courteous and you will be happy you did.

Extensive on-line research. I highly recommend Dr. Naficy. He took the time to explain everything about the two procedures before surgery, and he showed me before and after pictures which clearly showed the improvement in my appearance.

Dr Naficy is an artist, and he runs a very professional, personal and nurturing office. I highly recommend him and his staff.

Dr Daniel Berg at UW clinic, did a Mohs procedure on me for melanoma. Since I respected Dr Berg, I asked him who he would send a loved one to if having a face lift. Dr Berg gave me 3 names. After viewing Dr Naficy's impressive credentials and photo gallery, it was an easy choice. All his patients have beautiful, natural results.

In short, if you need any procedure done large or small, if you want to look natural, have a great result and if you want your doctor to REALLY take a great care about you - Dr. Naficy is your ONLY choice! No false promises, no fake smiles. He always listen, understand all your needs and gives you realistic expectations. He did magic for me and I had difficult case. I looked before and after photos at all surgeons (Eastside and Seattle), choose 11 and interviewed plastic surgeons. Most of them was afraid to do cartilage graft because it's always easier to fix big bump on your nose than fix little imperfections. To achieve that you have to have a Magic degree and Dr.Naficy defiantly has one. Dr.Naficy also did follow up with me (3 times) after surgery in person. I had 5 plastic procedures done before and none of the surgeons did that. Dr. Naficy did a wonderful job and I'm thankful to him beyond any words can say. Dr. Naficy is the best plastic and medical surgeon in Seattle area. I'll only trust my face to Dr. Naficy in the future.

I researched rhinoplasty for a couple years before making the leap and getting it done. I read every forum around and interviewed many doctors in the Seattle & Bellevue area. Dr. Naficy was by far the most qualified doctor I met with. His before and after pictures are perfect examples of the quality of his work. I wouldn't let any other doctor come near my face! If you are considering rhinoplasty then look no further - this is your guy. - Jamie

Online through intense research. Dr. Naficy and staff were, and still are, the most professional and nicest staff I've dealt with in the medical industry. I highly recommend Dr. Naficy and actually wouldn't even recommend anyone else. His services are a little more than other plastic surgeons but I would have paid even more to get these results. I can't say enough nice things and couldn't be happier.

I looked up the best recommended doctor for rhinoplasty and he was in the top 5 in Seattle. Before deciding to revise my nose I had been a patient of Dr. Naficy's of more than two years for botox injections. I made a consultation with Julie to see if rhinoplasty is what I wanted; she eased my mind and answered all of my questions with her vast knowledge of the procedure and what to expect after. Dr. Naficy came in after and discussed in more detail the same. They made me feel comfortable and in good working hands. I had the procedure a year ago. I can breathe better. My nose is straight, not crooked and I really like that I still look like myself, yet I have more confidence. Dr. Naficy, Julie and his staff have helped give this to me. I would recommend him to anyone who is thinking about having this procedure. Not only is he professional and honest about what he can do for you, he is surrounded by a staff that is just as amazing as he is!

I read about him in a Seattle Magazine article about 8 years ago. Dr. Naficy and his entire staff were amazing! Everyone treated me with so much care, that my nervousness about undergoing a surgical procedure was greatly diminished. Dr. Naficy is a perfectionist and a very gifted surgeon and I am so happy to have found him!

It was a great experience. Very clean clinic with professional staff. I was very confident in Dr. Naficy's capabilities. I healed very well, minimal bruising/swelling. I feel much more confident. Only con was the price - a lot was double charged to me as a personal expense and charged again to my insurance.

After reading Dr. Nacify's credentials and research online, I flew from the east coast to meet with him in person. I immediately felt completely at ease with his professional staff and nurses. Dr. Nacify and his nurses never pressured me into making decisions I was not comfortable with and he was patient when answering my questions. I had the surgery and am so happy with the results. I truly cannot say enough about how grateful I am to him, the nurses, and staff for all their care before and after the surgery.

He was so kind and patient and real when I met him. His credentials speak for themselves. He is truly a gifted Doctor and made me feel so much better about myself. From the first call I made to Dr Nacify's office I knew I was in the best hands. The receptionist took time to calm my nerves as I had never had any kind of surgery in my 42 years. I was referred to Dr Nacify my dermatologist who spoke highly of him as well.

The pre-op call from the anesthesiologist was an unexpected surprise and really helped to put me at ease. Any concern I have had post op was addressed with immediately returned calls. I would highly recommend Naficy to anyone. I found him online and when I came in for a consult i appreciated his honesty and genuineness regarding my concerns from a previous surgery at another office. This office is run so efficiently and professionally and everyone has a friendly and upbeat attitude.

I researched feedback from patients on online plastic surgery sites and based on their feedback chose Dr. Nacify. Dr. Nacify is an excellent and gifted surgeon and I am so pleased with the result. I am glad I chose him to do this procedure. I wouldn't have chosen anyone else.

I researched online for the best plastic surgeons and he definitely had the best ratings for what I was looking for and definitely reached if not exceeded those standards. The pros were definitely the outcome of the surgery at this point and my whole surgical procedure at Naficy was the best medical experience I have ever had. The staff was incredible and everyone made is their best effort to make me as comfortable as possible.

Because he is the best of the best. I was referred to him from a friend. Dr. Naficy is so talented. He gave me a better result than I cold have ever imagined on my own.

Thank you Dr. Naficy and your entire staff for being so wonderful.

We were recommended by another plastic surgeon to use Dr. Naficy and it was the greatest choice we could have made. He was perfect in all aspects, I cant think of a single negative comment to say. So happy and proud to say he changed my life.
Posted by littleladybug
After interviewing many surgeons for a Rhinoplasty Revision, I did feel the most confident in Dr. Naficy. He took the time to explain the procedure, really listened to my concerns and desires and then took things one step further by explaining the procedure and the outcome I wished for. The level of confidence and assuredness from Dr. Naficy as well as his patients testimonials to me in telephone interviews and pre and post operative patient photos of his work all helped me make the final decision to choose him as my surgeon.
