5 out of 5 stars CoolSculpting

Coolsculpting

Dr. Balikian and his staff are so helpful and informative. I would never go anywhere else!

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Eye Lift, Face Lift and Neck - Temecula, CA

From the moment I met Dr. Balikian I had complete trust in his ability. I have been wanting to have my turkey neck done for 11 years. Not only did I have that done, but also a face lift and an eye lid surgery. I am definitely not a beautiful woman but Dr. Balikian sure made me feel that way. He gave me the confidence to finally have the neck done and more. It has been a month and the results are fantastic, and am told it will get better and better in the next few months. Would I do again, You Bet, but only if Dr. Balikian is doing the job. The office staff and especially Missy, were all kind and helpful This meant so very much to me. I would not even wear my hair up and was so ashamed of the way I looked. Can't wait to wear my hair up and finally be able to look at myself with joy. Thank you so much

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Upper Eyelids and Liposuction - Temecula, CA

The doctor is board certified in head and neck surgery but lives and works in a smaller town so his rates are one-half of what is charged in Beverly Hills, 40 scant miles away.

5 out of 5 stars Botox

botox vs dysport - Temecula, CA

great dr. and reasonable rates!!

5 out of 5 stars Neck Lift

Outstanding and Caring Doctor - Temecula, CA

Having your face worked on can be a scary thing. Dr. B listened to what I wanted, and put me at ease. He didn't pressure me into getting any other procedures than those that I wanted.

Rhinoplasty,Lower Blepharoplasty,Submental Liposuction - Murrieta, CA

He is excellent in this field! My primary doctor suggested him.

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Turn Back the Clock! - Temecula, CA

My aesthetician had seen the results of Dr. Balikian's work, and upon my inquiry, suggested I see him. Which I did. After that consultation, I still was too afraid, so I waited for another 5 months before I got up the nerve to go ahead and do it. All I can say is that I'M GLAD I DID!! Dr. Balikian is a very kind professional. His office staff is knowledgeable, and anyone in the office can help with any questions I have ever had. I'm very very happy that Dr. Balikian helped to "turn back the clock!".

5 out of 5 stars Lip Lift

Beautiful Results - Temecula, CA

I would go to Dr. Balikian for any future facial procedure I might want or need. Dr. Balikian was initially recommended to me from a friend and now I recommend him to all my friends!

Rhinoplasty - Finally Deciding to Go for It - Temecula, CA

So, as many of the others have stated, I've hated my nose since I was about 10 years old and it started to define itself. I am incredibly self conscious while talking face to face with people, and hate having people to my side where they can see my profile. I have never been comfortable with people taking photos of me because my nose photographs so so horribly. I've got a very defined and...
