5 out of 5 stars Dysport
My doctor works on "looking natural" rather than "making alterations" and that is really the best quality.
5 out of 5 stars Neck Lift
Dr Torkian is an intelligent, tasteful practitioner who respected my wishes and listened to me as we discussed the kind of outcome I wanted. In Beverly Hills it seems to me that women wear their facelifts - or any of their facial work as a badge of honor- it's simply a different aesthetic from my own. For me, it was important that I look as if I had had not a single thing done to me. I wanted to look elegant and utterly like myself, just without the horrible turkey neck I was developing. He did not suggest a bunch of extra procedures, and in fact was very specific about what he would do in my specific lift. He explained that certain aspects of the procedure (like the sewing together of the platysma muscle, something I assumed he would do) were not necessary, but other things, like a touch of lipo under the chin, were. He did both neck and lower face, smoothing out the slight jowls that were forming and ensuring that there was a natural look to the results. We discussed stitch placement, the pros and cons of where the incisions might go - everything important. I blew up like a balloon right after surgery, but his confidence in the success of this outcome kept me soothed and indeed at the end of two weeks I was looking pretty good. It has now been almost a month and I am pretty thrilled. I look about 10 years younger and there is no sign of surgery!!!!!! And by the way, the day of my surgery, he texted me his cell number and told me to call if I had ANY issues. I did not. He saw me two days later and again 10 days after that. My surgery was utterly issue-free. He did a wonderful job. He only does faces by the way, and I think that is incredibly important. Right before I left town, he did some botox on me that I had requested and then told me it was on the house. He's a great guy! Everyone who works at the Laskey clinic - everyone I dealt with in his office was lovely, helpful and genuinely happy for me.

I had rhino a few years ago with the same surgeon and the result is just amazing!
Dr. is extremely knowledgeable and skilled in facial aesthetics. He shares every aspect of the procedure with you and is takes his time to make sure everything is absolutely perfect.
5 out of 5 stars Septoplasty
After going on SIX consults with other dr's I can confidently say all that time, energy, and doubt about going on a 7th consult was 100% worth it. Not only can I now breathe, my number one concern which many, if not most, plastic surgeons aren't as experienced in correcting, but the look is fantastic as well. I did not want any drastic change whatsoever and that's what I received from Dr...

5 out of 5 stars Botox
Dr. Torkian has done several small procedures on me (botox, juvederm injections in face, lips...) and each time I was 100% happy. I've known & dealt with SO many plastic surgeons and they are mostly all icky af. Dr. Torkian is the OPPOSITE of icky. He very obviously cares about each patient and has a standard of excellence.
5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
I'm a product designer and deal with 3d forms and shapes all day. My nose had been bugging me as far as I can remember. When looking for a doc for rhinoplasty, I came across some crazy docs who were full of themselves. Dr. Torkian is not like that AT ALL. When you walk in his office it's like you have come to see an old friend. He's personable, excited about showing his portfolio and genuinely...
5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
Dr. Torkian was the only doctor I consulted with. Some may think that's crazy, but he really put me at ease and thoroughly explained what techniques he could use. I went in just knowing that I didn't like my nose, mainly the hump, and that I didn't think it fit my face. He has a great aesthetic taste, and none of the photos he showed me look like the stereotypical nose jobs that most people think of when they hear about this surgery. I told him over and over-- natural, I want to look natural. Not like a different person. And he did just that! My consultation was free and lasted about an hour. My photo was taken via 3D imaging and this was used during the consultation to make changes to my face. I then met with his patient coordinator to go over what the costs are and if insurance would cover any. Never did his staff push me in a direction, they just gave me the information I needed to make a decision. His staff is very friendly, I could call or email questions and they kindly and promptly answered. About a month prior to surgery I had a pre-op appt. in which I met with Dr. Torkian for about another hour. We went over my photos again, and I had a chance to make any changes or ask questions about the surgery, pre- and post op recovery etc. He was always kind, re-assuring, professional, and down to earth. I would 100% recommend Dr. Torkian to a friend.. and I have some considering going to him =)
