5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

I had an incredible experience!

I met w/ Dr. Tansavatdi (Dr. T) because I had strongly disliked the look of my nose since I was a child. It had a bulbous tip and a hanging columella. As I have aged, the nose has gotten worse looking. I have also had breathing problems for the last seven or so years. When I'd run or do any exercise I felt like I had to mouth breath.I always felt like my nasal breathing was obstructed and I...

5 out of 5 stars Septoplasty

Couldn't be happier with my experience

After years of not being able to breath through my nose and always being self-conscious about my profile, I finally found a doctor that I was comfortable with, trusted and believed would be able to solve the problem without making me look like I'd had work done. She won me over in the first visit when I tried out some botox; of which she helped me recover from an almost traumatizing experience...

5 out of 5 stars Restylane

32 Y/o Starting to See Bags & Dark Circles Under Eyes

Dr. T was outstanding! I trusted her technique and she was so calming and gentle. Her entire staff was great as well from start to finish! I will always go to Dr. T for any procedure.

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

I Have the Eyes I Used to Have!

Dr. Tansavatdi is an exceptional professional in that she has an impeccable personable bedside manner and precision in her work; both injections and surgery.

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Great Experience, surgery to follow =)

Went to see Dr. T for discussion on a few different procedures and had Botox done the same day as my consult. I was very impressed with her and how she relates her clients. As soon as she walked in the room she wanted to sit close and across from me so that she could examine my face and regular motions. She was friendly, personable and listened to all of my concerns. She's candid and honest...

5 out of 5 stars FaceTite

FaceTite Results Were Higher Than my Expectations!! - Westlake Village, CA

I loved, loved my results. The results were higher than my expectations. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I feel like I had 10 years taken off my life. I wanted something that I was going to be awake for and min recovery time. For the first 48 hrs I was extremely swollen and the following week I had gone to a Christmas party without any signs that I had anything done.

5 out of 5 stars Fat Transfer

52 Year Old, 3 Kids, Fat Transfer

I love everything about Dr. T & her team!

5 out of 5 stars Lip Surgery

Really takes time to listen; fantastic job - Los Angeles, CA

Dr. T is very thorough in understanding patient needs as well as open to trying different approaches for plastic surgery. What I like best is that her office is easily accessible compared to more urban locations like Beverly Hills, and she takes the time to listen versus directing the patient towards a particular procedure. The morning of my surgery, she took the time to pull up notes we had...

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

I am extremely pleased with my results and still look like myself

I love this office. Walking in you're immediately greeted with a smile from multiple friendly faces. Everyone you encounter there is kind, positive, genuine and inviting. You don't get that with many offices especially in this field. When I first met with Dr. Tansavatdi I felt like she listened to and understood all of my concerns. She explained everything that would take place if I chose to...

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Dr. T had my best interest in mind, and my results are AMAZING.

My experience with Dr. T was a delightful experience from beginning to end. I was in a rush to seek out a doctor who could perform a septo and rhinoplasty and I only had a month to do so because I was no longer going to be covered by my insurance. I had seen a few doctors prior to seeing Dr. T and had some pretty unpleasant experiences. Dr. T and her staff are THE ABSOLUTE BEST! I have never...

Ensuring an Optimal Surgery Experience

To some degree, cosmetic surgery is an art as a well as a science. The results are not only dependent upon the skill and experience of the surgeon, but they also depend on the your ability to communicate to the surgeon what you want. In other words, no two facelifts, nose surgeries, ear surgeries, etc. are the same. Each procedure must be individualized and customized to bring a result as close to how you wish to look as possible. For this reason, it is very important for you to help...
