5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Lower lid blepharoplasty with amazing results.

I am 38 years old and since my late 20's I've had bags under my eyes. I tried all sorts of expensive creams with little change. I decided to look into lower lid blepharoplasty. I was nervous about doing the procedure and concerned about starting to have any surgery on my face at this age. But looking in the mirror everyday I got tired of looking tired even tho I wasn't. So, I finally decided...

Eye (Orbital) Socket Fracture Surgery

I waited over ten years to finally have the strength to see a surgeon for my fracture eye socket. I am so grateful that I came across Dr. Taban. It was a really complicated fracture because it was fractured on two different areas but with Taban skill and experience he was able to fix it. My eye was getting worse over the years, smaller in size and sunken. He brought it back up and out into...

Dr.Taban & Staff-great experience - Beverly Hills, CA

Thank you Dr.Taban & Staff! Recently had filler done in the tear trough area on both eyes. I had never done any filler injections before...and needles are not my favorite, so I was a bit nervous. I had been told by friends to find someone who really knew what they were doing as this area can be tricky. I had gone to 4 consultations before deciding on Dr. Taban. He is very knowledgable and...

Thumbs up for Dr. Taban and his staff!

Dr. Taban is definitely worth traveling hundreds if not thousands of miles for his services. Six months ago Dr. Taban repaired the retraction of my right lower lid, which was caused by a previous failed blepharoplasty performed by another surgeon. As an out of town patient Dr. Taban and his staff made my experience positive from beginning to end. A big thumbs up!

I had an amazing experience

Dr. Taban is not only a beauty doctor, but does very difficult eye surgeries with a lot of success. (see his "work" on instagram) That made me feel very comfortable and at peace. I'm from Switzerland, but I wanted to come to LA to get my hollow eyes filled up by Dr. Taban, because he really knows what he is doing. I'm very satisfied with the result and I felt very comfortable during the...

Dr. Taban is a miracle worker

Dr. Ray Taban is literally a miracle worker. Let me preface this review by saying I have extensive knowledge of soft tissue surgery and oral/maxillofacial surgery. I understand the procedures to a moderate extent and the aesthetic relations of features on the face (along with their 3-dimensional projections). I know of many occuloplastic surgeons, maxillofacial surgeons, implant specialists,...

Orbital Decompression Surgery Amazing Results

Dr. Taban is a miracle doctor. I am 18 years old and had Graves Disease since my early teens. I saw him on The Doctors show where he performed Orbital Decompression on one of his patients for bulgy eyes. My heart fell to my stomach because I didn't even know there was such a thing as orbital decompression and how different his patient looked after the surgery; so my mom and I called for a...

Grateful to Dr. Taban!

I was referred to Dr. Taban in December 2015 by my Optometrist. At that time I was 1 year post lower blepharoplasty surgery which resulted in severe lower lid retraction. By the time I was referred to Dr. Taban, I was feeling helpless and hopeless because I had spent an entire year of my life massaging and taping my lower eyelids in hopes of preventing the need for a second surgery a...
