5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
For as long as I can remember, I have felt self-conscious about my nose. Unfortunately for me, the area I grew up in was blessed with an impeccable gene pool, and in my eyes I was placed there by mistake. Throughout high school, I continuously made comments about getting a nose job. My parents never agreed, or even responded to my comments for that matter, but as my days left in high school...

3 out of 5 stars Revision Rhinoplasty
Found Dr Azzizadeh more or less through real self. After consult I was sure that he is the expert who will fix my nose especially since he seemed to understand what I was trying to achieve. It is now almost two years since the surgery and I have to say that I don't like the way the tip of the nose looks as well as also the uneven nostrils and profile. I am very very disappointed. with the...
5 out of 5 stars Ultherapy
I'm 42 and my skin looks great (according to others). I've been told I could pass for early 30's (I take care of my skin! Retin-A, Vitamin C, Glycolic, sunscreen). That being said I have started noticing the natural "sag" in my face (and starting to get the round jowly look that runs in my family). Decided to try Ultherapy today (and was scared after reading reviews on here). 2 hours post-...
5 out of 5 stars Restylane
I decided to post a review about my experience with restylane and Botox. I have spent many hours on this site and found it to be very helpful (and frightening) at the same time. I have terrible dark under eye circles and hollowness. Fortunately I live in S California so I was able to have access to excellent plastic surgeons. I found one that has amazing credentials and is actually a trainer...
1 out of 5 stars Revision Rhinoplasty
I am very self conscious about the way my revision turned out. This is my second rhinoplasty and Its going to be a year this December since I got my procedure done. I am so emotionally drained, embarrassed and depressed with my results. Immediately after my cast was taken off I could tell my nose was wider down the bridge and bigger at the tip. My nose was huge. Dr Z insisted it was just...
5 out of 5 stars Revision Rhinoplasty
Dr. Azzizadeh reconstructed my nose to look perfectly natural and aesthetically pleasing. More specifically, the cartilage of my nose was caving in from a prior botched nose job. Dr. Azzizadeh reused fat and cartilage from elsewhere in my body to build a new nose on my face. One might expect modest results at best in this situation, but thanks to doctor's exceptional skills I miraculously...
5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
Dr Azizzadeh changed my life with my rhinoplasty. His work is exactly what I was looking for and through this process he made me feel like the most important patient, answered all of my questions, and made me feel as if there nowhere more important he had to be. His bedside manner is wonderful and he made me feel very calm throughout the whole process. I'm so happy with the results. My nose...

Although Botox is most commonly used on the upper third of the face to smooth wrinkles, it also has very useful applications for the mid to lower third of the face. Nose The ‘bunny lines’ that can occur during speaking or smiling can be corrected with just a few units of Botox. Mouth Botox can be used around the mouth to help prevent wrinkling when speaking or chewing. A gummy smile (when the gums show too much when one smiles) can also be successfully treated...
The aging process does not discriminate between men and women. Every year more and more men are looking to optimize on the same facial rejuvenation techniques women have been using for decades. According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), cosmetic procedures for men increased 88% from 1997 to 2010. Men had more than 750,000 cosmetic procedures in 2010 alone. Most polls reveal that most men seek cosmetic surgery to better compete in the...
Botox has certainly made a name for itself around the world as the #1 wrinkle-smoothing agent. However, the neurotoxins’ capabilities actually extend far beyond the aesthetic arena. Botox was originally used by Ophthalmologists (eye doctors) to treat strabismus. This is a condition where one eye is not properly aligned with the other commonly referred to as “cross-eyed”. Patients began to notice an improvement in fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, and soon...
