5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty, Liposuction, Fat Injections - Glendale, CA

I had a rhinoplasty with belly liposuction and cheek and under eye fat injections last year. Dr Vartanian's work is great and the staff are very supportive. I am very happy with how great my nose looks and how close to the computer pictures (almost exactly) my results are. Fat injections are still there more than a year and half later and look great. I have also had Botox. I highly recommend...

Restylane for Under Eye Trough/bags - Glendale, CA

I am happy with my results for restylane. I am 24 years old and was unhappy about the dark circles under my eyes and tired of always looking tired no matter how much I tried to cover them. I did a lot of research online before opting for this procedure. It is pretty expensive $500/syringe. My Dr. suggested two syringes for my hollows but I decided to stick with one for now. I was a little...

Would Highly Recommend! - Glendale, CA

His staff was wonderful and helpful. Everything went smooth and I am very satisified with my nose. The doctor had great knowledge of the procedure he was going to perform and pleasant bed side manners which helped the process. When I went in for my consultation his staff at the office were very comforting and I didn't feel uncomfortable being there. They called me the next day to ake sure I was ok and if I needed anything. I would highly recommend him.

Superb - Glendale, CA

Being a man's man and realizing age has done a number on me, I went to Dr. Vartanian for a consult, his entire office was friendly and made me feel so comfortable I am not embarassed to go there. Dr. Vartanian and I have such an open relationship that I can confide in him with all my flaws! He does such a great work, and the best of all if he feels that something you request won't look good he will tell you as is, other doctors will just do it for the money, but not Dr. Vartanian. Wish all doctors were like him!! Highly recommend!!! and I don't write reviews at all btw!!

Amazing Results, Great Staff, Experienced Dr. - Glendale, CA

I'm extremely happy with the results of my rhinoplasty/septoplasty. Dr. V did an amazing job, was very patient with me and answered every one of my questions. Staff is also great and very knowledgeable. I did months of research on many doctors and went on several consultations. I chose Dr. V over the others because I felt more comfortable with him and with his expertise as a facial plastic surgeon. He exceeded my expectations in every way and would HIGHLY recommend him.

Great Experience - Glendale, CA

After meeting with Dr. V,I felt very comfortable and at ease with the consultation meeting and I figured if I was ever to do nose surgery, he would be the doctor for me. Then one day I got the guts and went for my 2nd consultation and booked the surgery. The results were amazing, I wanted a very natural look. He did a fantastic job, much better than I could have ever imagined or hoped for. He is so precise and so good at what he does. Even my own friends and family did not notice the change. That's how natural it was. But, every morning when I look at myself, I notice the change and I am so thankful to Dr. V and his office staff who were also very helpful through the whole process. It was one of the best decisions I ever made. Now, I breathe better and I feel better. I'm so happy with the results and the overall experience, everything was very smooth and so well worth it.

Very Happy :) - Glendale, CA

I just had my 3 months post-op visit with Dr. Vartanian and I absolutely LOVE the result! I even have strangers coming up to me these days to tell me that I have a really cute nose! I was so impressed with his work that I also asked him to do some fillers on my cheeks and lips, and once again, everything looks unbelievable natural and gorgeous!! Not to mention no bruising!!!
