5 out of 5 stars Botox

Amazing Botox Result

I went to Dr. Bonakdar to have Botox done for my first time and had a great experience! Her office is beautiful and the staff are all very kind and helpful. I was super nervous that it would hurt or that I could have a bad result. Dr. Bonakdar had a great touch, I was pleasantly surprised how painless my treatment was and my results are amazing!

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. The procedure was quick and painless and the result is exactly what I was hoping for - full symmetrical lips that look...

Professional, friendly and informative. She really listened to my concerns and gave me the outcome I desired. I am very happy and will return to her again.

Botox and Juvederm Fillers - Corona Del Mar, CA

Dr Bonakdar has a great bedside manner, she will immediately make you feel at ease the moment you meet her. She has an engaging sense of humor coupled with an eye for aesthetic beauty. I never felt pressured simply educated on the services they offer. I did not know that she's been in the aesthetic industry for over 20+ years. Well trained and has years injectable and laser experience. She carries some amazing skin care lines exclusively. As I understand, she is a Physicians trainer for ALLERGAN. Knowing this, pretty much sealed the deal for me. There are way too many practices out there that do not specialize in "Aesthetics". Leave the Plastics to the Plastic Surgeons. The practice Is beautifully designed with fresh and meticulous tone. Beautiful fresh flowers in the reception area welcome you upon entering. The experience begins here with her friendly informative receptionist. Each one of her beautiful Staff members makes you feel welcomed and cared for. I wanted to ask if and what some of the ladies have done because they all look so natural. Hard to believe in the OC. Professional, knowledgeable with a true sense of caring for the patient, her staff will call to check up on you after your procedures. They will text or email to remind you of your next appointment. Always positive and friendly. Oh and you won't believe this, No wait time either. It's nice to actually be taken back at your appointed time. Here's something I discovered, many patients prefer to take advantage of the Filler and Botox packages they offer. Dr. Bonakdar hosts two Open Houses one in Sept. and one in Feb/March, each one is different but always have excellent treatment packages you can use throughout the year. I was informed that they are highly worth attending. My advice. 1. Make an appt for an assessment/consultation and be amazed when you leave. And 2. Attend one or both of their Open Houses. Here's to growing old gracefully and naturally!!!

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...
