5 out of 5 stars Juvederm

I always have an amazing experience

I have never felt such a welcoming presence at a doctor's office before; and by the way it's more like a beautifully appointed luxury spa than a doctor's office. Dr. Bonakdar is the real deal; she is a real person; she listens and she truly cares; she's also very honest and funny which I love. Her staff follows in her footsteps - they know how to take care of people. When visiting Dr. Bonakdar...

My experience was amazing!

My experience was (and always is) great with Dr. Bonakdar. She is very experienced, knowledgeable and yet, at the same time very personal. She and her staff are always 100% professional. I am never a patient there, but a real person.

Lip Augmentation

I saw Dr. B for lip filler because my lips are naturally very asymmetrical and I was hoping to have them evened out. I was so impressed by her technique and precision in taking exact measurements of my lips to determine exactly where to place the filler and how much I needed.

58 Year Old Female - Newport Beach, CA

My lips were shrinking with age but I was nervous to do this because I just wanted my normal size lips back and was afraid of getting lips that looked too large. Dr. Bonakdar did my procedure in 2 separate appointments to make sure I was happy with the outcome. I had a small amount the first time and went back for a little more.

My goal was to plump them back up and soften the lines around my mouth, but stay as natural looking as possible. I...

Dangerous Physician

My experience with this doctor is that she is reckless and dangerous. She does not have the training or skill to perform body contouring. Her staff is not properly trained to monitor a patient post-op and it is not her routine to even check on her patients herself. She has left me permanantly deformed with significant damage that cannot be repaired, which has been confirmed by 5 board...
