5 out of 5 stars Arm Lift

Brachioplasty and Lipo Revision---AMAZING His stitching is AWESOME

My personal experience with Dr. Zelken has been by far the most comfortable and relieving experience with a plastic surgeon. He took the time to understand my needs and delivered on my expectations! I want to go back again next year for my breast augmentation!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

4 days post surgery and could'nt be better

I have to say hands down Dr. Zelken is the best plastic surgeon around. I have worked in the plastic surgery community for 13 years and had a top notch beverly hills/newport beach doctor originally do my breast augmentation. my revision needed the hands of an expert so I went and saw Dr. Zelken, I am 4 days post surgery and feel amazing and my results are already amazing. Dr. Zelken and his...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift

Happiest decision of my life.

Dr. Zelken is a step above most doctors I have encountered in the Newport area. Not only is he supremely talented, but he truly cares about each patient that comes in. I trusted him completely and he delivered more than anything I could have ever dreamed. I have seen his other patients results and I am equally impressed with what I have seen. I am so fortunate to have found him and I hope in...

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Septo-Rhinoplasty on 20 yr old female w/a deviated septum

I broke my nose playing basketball when I was in high school. Since the break in my nasal bone did not heal properly, it caused an obvious deviation and slight curve to the right that made me have a huge hump when looking at my side profile. On top of that, I naturally had a bulbous tip so the break in my nose just contributed to me feeling like I have a huge nose. After years of feeling...

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Brows, lines, liquid nose job

I have always been pleased with Dr. Zelken's work. I came in for Botox injections on my forehead and he noticed my brows were uneven. I didn't know Botox could fix that before. My brows are even now and seems very symmetrical. I can't go to anyone else because they seem to make it worse where one brow is significantly higher. I thought it was inevitable to have this effect.. I would have my...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction with Latissimus Flap

A Great Dr. and Wonderful Human Being - Newport Beach, CA

He's a team player, very confident about his diagnosis but also understands that everyone is different and takes it all into consideration. The end result was amazing and I trust his judgment and skill level. I have been to lots of doctors and after consultation, I often walk away, never to look back. This one is a keeper because he is excellent at what he does, had excellent training and is a people person. Not just kissing up to you to get your business but he persists on the patient understanding the benefits of one procedure over another. I appreciate him taking his time with me because I am not an easy patient to be a push over, I want convincing that the procedure is correct and he took the time and persistence to give me all the answers. If you can get your work done through Zelken, the Gods are looking out for you big time.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction Revision

I almost gave up; but this doctor listened and understood how I felt. He is great.

I had mastectomy, breast reconstruction (for cancer), had been in constant pain x2 yrs and despite 2 revisions by my plastic surgeon, there was no relief at all. Went to Dr. Zelken who was very responsive to my needs, very professional, w/ very refined bedside manner; after the second revision by him I was relieved of the pain a lot, feeling better each passing day. Had mastectomy, breast...

Invasive Lobular Carcinoma Breast Reconstruction - Newport Beach, CA

I was diagnosed with invasive lobular carcinoma that required a lumpectomy and breast reconstruction. Dr. Zelken was my plastic surgeon. He is amazing. His bedside manner is kind, caring and genuine. He is truly an artist in his craft and I would recommend him in an instant. He helped make what was easily the worst experience in my life something that I no longer wish had never happened. He...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

25 Years Old Breast Augmentation - Orange, CA

The office Dr. Zelken was at was the first place I was going for a consultation. The original doctor I was scheduled to see was unavailable last minute so I consulted with Dr. Zelken. I cannot express enough how happy I was the other doctor was unavailable. Dr. Zelken spent a lengthy 2 hours with me to answer all my questions. He was so patient with me and explained everything thoroughly. ...

Invasive Ductal Carcinoma with DIEP Flap Reconstruction - Amazing Results - Orange, CA

On Febuary 3, 2016 I was diagnosed with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma after a routine annual mammogram and biopsy. Shock, blindsided and numb are just a few words to describe how I felt. Fortunately my OBGYN had set me up with an appointment at Breastlink just 3 days layer. What a blessing! I was seen by Dr. West who explained the testing and choices that were to follow. I was given...
