"Even though I think my wife is perfect the way she is, if she has any cosmetic surgery, we would not trust anyone with her face other than Dr. Sunder." "Not to mention, her entire staff is the best."

5 out of 5 stars Ultherapy

Excellent doctor!

Dr Sunder is a superb doctor! She has a wonderful bedside manner and really makes you feel very relaxed and confident. She has a great team working with her. I highly recommend Dr Sarmela Sunder and her practice.

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Amazing Dr. Sunder!!

I cannot express how happy and relieved I am that I found Dr. Sunder! I am a 50 year old woman who has been getting botox and restylane for approximately 10 years. I finally decided that it was time to get an upper eye lift, instead of the regular maintenance! I interviewed about 5 doctors, including the big names in Beverly Hills. I was immediately struck by Dr. Sunder's intelligence and...

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Best Doctor!

I love Dr. Sunder! I do Restylane in my lips and Botox with her. I've been to other doctors before, and she is the best. She is quick and gets the job done with the least amount of pain possible. She takes a lot of time to go over any procedures I want or that I am considering. I never feel rushed by her, which I have in the past by other doctors. When I need more major work in the future, I...

5 out of 5 stars Neck Lift

15 years younger. I got asked for my ID in Las Vegas!

I am so happy I met with Dr. Sunder and decided to have my surgeries with her. We just...clicked. She is so skilled, highly trained and really listens to what you are looking for. She takes the time to work with you and explain the process. I am 53 years old and having a neck lift is a HUGE improvement to anyone with jowls and hanging skin. Same with an upper eye lift. Great results. 4...

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Dr. Sarmela Sunder Was the Best Choice for my Rhinoplasty! - Encino, CA

Dr. Sunder is not only highly skilled and talented, but she is just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. I really appreciate the time that she spent with me to make sure that all bases were covered. She is very detail-oriented, which is excellent because I am as well. Her follow-up is awesome! She gives beyond five star service the whole way through. Who wouldn't want a stunning plastic surgeon that looks like a model and that is skilled beyond belief? I plan on getting many more procedures with Dr. Sunder to maintain a youthful look. At 35, I feel the need to stay on top of my looks while I can, before they completely go astray. She will be my "magic youth in a bottle" from now on. lol! Not to mention, her entire staff is the best. They all make an A+ team! They are all beautiful, sweet ladies!

5 out of 5 stars Lower Face Lift

52 Yr.old and Loving my Lower Lift - Los Angeles, CA

When you are looking for a Dr. that is going to work on your face you want an artist. Yes, I believe there is an art to making a 52yr old look 40 again. I told her I just wanted to look refreshed. Dr. Sunder accomplished this. The face is her specialty. Dr. Sunder's bedside manner is amazing. She is so attentive to your needs. She is personable and professional. She never passed me off to her staff for any reason, I dealt with her the whole way through and all the after care. I would highly recommend her to everyone as I have.

Botox Experience - Encino, CA

5 out of 5 stars Lip Reduction

Dr. Sarmela Sunder's Helped Make My Lips Look Smaller Without Surgery! - Encino, CA

Dr. Sarmela Sunder's is very well trained in her field of plastic surgery, and tends to sway towards the safe procedures that won't do harm to you. I appreciated her honesty and how she didn't want me to waste my money on something I did not need done. She also was concerned about the end results and how they might effect me. She was very thorough at our first meeting and that is why I decided to have her do my lip reduction.

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

56 Feeling Saggy, Eye Lids Are Heavy Looking/feeling. Insurance Will Pay for Eyelift So I Thought Go for Smas Facelift As Well.

Fabulous! Can't say enough about Dr. Sunder. She is always available for any questions. I saw her 5 years ago, for possible Fraxel, Fillers, Botox or something. At that time I knew if I was to ever have surgical work done, it would be done by her. I loved her petite hands (I thought her incisions would be smaller), Double Board Certified experience. The fact that she trained with a renown New York Plastic Surgeon was appealing to me.
