5 out of 5 stars Vivace

Forehead Wrinkles Be Gone!

My doctor is Farhan Taghizadeh, MD, and he is the most sensitive doctor, so concerned with my comfort always, but committed to creating real results for me. He recommended The Vivace over doing more invasive procedures on me, and he was right! I got just what I was looking for. I so appreciate a doctor who is in it for the patient's happiness and results. He focused on what I needed, not what he could sell me. That is super integrity all the way. I highly recommend him.

Fabulous Results from an Amazing Doc - Albuquerque, NM

Dr. Taghizadeh's contributions and inventions to the profession are already documented elsewhere. I cannot say enough about his gifts: honest responses, thorough, thoughtful manner. You can tell this Doc is totally engaged by what he does... and it shows... on my face. Lucky me.

Great Results - Albuquerque, NM

I have shared my experience with all of my friends and even the NP who performed my pre-op. She had asked that I stop in so she could see my results. She thought I looked great and even is considering having her mother see you for a laser! All of my friends say that of all of the results of others they have seen my are by far the best. Dr. T. was great and the whole staff was very...

5 out of 5 stars Lifestyle Lift

A Work in Progress - Albuquerque, NM

I began searching for face-lift, laser, other procedures to improve my appearance quite a while ago.. After a thorough investigation, I felt that the Lifestyle Lift would be the best for my personal situation. Boy, was I ever 100% correct!

5 out of 5 stars CO2 Laser

Honest, Individualized Course of Treatment - Albuquerque, NM

Dr. Taghizadeh is pleasant and friendly, completely devoid of the arrogance that (unfortunately) I have encountered in some other MDs. I would recommend him to anyone seeking cosmetic facial procedures. As a man who will turn sixty next year, I was surprised when Dr. Taghizadeh told me that in my case, he would not recommend a facelift (Lifestyle Lift). He said my skin was still too tight for it to be worth my while to get a facelift now (although he said that eventually, everyone would get to that point). This conveyed to me that he had my best interests at heart, not his immediate financial gain.

i went for it! - Albuquerque, NM

With much interest, I watched repetitive ads for the LIFESTYLE LIFT this summer, so my husband said “Check it out”! We did just that, and I signed up for one the day of my consultation! Rich, the Center Manager, explained each procedure thoroughly and introduced us to Dr. Taghizadeh, the surgeon for the Albuquerque Center. Dr. Taghizadeh has a kind and gentle nature with a confidence...

4 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

I do not recommend Dr. Taghizadeh

I have disliked my nose from the time I was a teen (it's large, bulbous, and crooked) but was unable to do anything b/c of finances until the ripe ol' age of 37 when my husband surprised me by taking a loan out of his retirement. This was a BIG deal. I made myself very clear to Dr. T that my ideal was the golden ratio and that I was extremely unhappy. He used his high tech computer camera to...
