4 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Mommy Makeover - Thousand Oaks, CA

After my two pregnancies I wasn't comfortable with my tummy having extra skin. Also always wanted to improve my breasts from my 34A size. My ObGyn doctor recommended Dr. Azar. My experience was extremely positive, from the consultation, procedure and through the follow up during recovery. After four weeks I started seeing results: the swelling going down on the tummy, breasts feeling softer...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Mother of Three, 40th Birthday Tummy Tuck - Thousand Oaks, CA

Dr. Azar is an excellent doctor I must begin by saying. He and his staff are five stars in all aspects. From the moment I first walked into the office their professionalism paired with their warmth and genuine interest in getting to know you were evident. Dr. Azar listens intently to your concerns and your ideal outcome and then offers an honest and skilled medical assessment and recommendation. I just felt very at ease and trusted Dr. Azar after our first meeting. The same goes for his staff. They are such caring professionals and the aftercare and follow up that everyone provides is top notch. My entire experience with Dr. Azar and his staff could not have been better. I am so thrilled with the outcome of my tummy tuck and feel very fortunate that I found Dr. Azar to perform this procedure. I will remain their patient for more minor procedures and I will always recommend them. I am now just going in for basic follow up and always enjoy seeing everyone, they have become friends. I remember those first weeks and how they were there for me when I needed them and apart from that I just enjoy our talks - I always have to remind myself they are in the middle of a work day or I could just keep chatting to them!

Great Tummy-Tuck Experience - Thousand Oaks, CA

My experience with Dr. Azar and his office was more than I could have asked for. The office personnel were professional and friendly. Dr. Azar was incredible. He has a wonderful, candid mannerism. He is also very gentle and has perfectionist tendencies which leave his patients with the best result imaginable. We discussed what I thought I wanted and talked about what was truly needed to...

Best Plastic Surgeon in Ventura County - Thousand Oaks, CA

Dear Dr. Azar It’s been slightly over one year since you performed my tummy tuck and liposuction. I so love my results!!!!! In my consultation you really listened to me and my needs. You took the time to explain the surgical, recovery processes and realistic results. You took a vested interest in my surgical outcome beyond my expectations. From day one you and your staff made me feel very comfortable. Even with all my follow up visits you and your staff still gave me the red carpet treatment. I'm so pleased with my surgical has motivated me to go to the gym and better my results. I have received so many compliments. This surgery has changed my life and thanks to you it will only get better. Thank you Dr. Azar and Staff

Dr. Azar is so easy to talk to. He explains everything clearly. He instills confidence, I trust him completely.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

35 Year Old, Breast Augmentation - Thousand Oaks, CA

Dr. Azar is wonderful. He listened to what I was asking for and understood what I wanted. He followed up with me closely so that I could get the best possible results. I was nervous about the idea of having a breast augmentation, even though I really, really wanted it, until I had my first consult with Dr. Azar. I immediately felt 100% confident in him and that I was going to get the results I wanted. The staff was friendly, helpful, and quick to answer questions. I would recommend Dr. Azar to anyone who was considering some type of plastic surgery. It is one of the best decisions I've made for myself.

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

New Chapter, New Nose. - Westlake Village, CA

Dr. Azar was extremely understanding and professional when I first came into his office and told him about the procedure I wanted done. He asked me if there was anything specific I wanted him to know about how I wanted my nose to look, and when I told him I just want to still look like me, he knew exactly what to do. He told me, "I do the work I think will look best on your face, because that's what matters." Not only did he know exactly what to do to fit my face, he also told me he was keeping certain features of my nose the same to save the authenticity of my look. He always checked in on me after the surgery, and during my weekly visits he would tell me what I could be doing to help calm my spastic brain. He's the best out there!

I Refer All People Who Comment on my Skin to Dr. Azar, He's the Best - Thousand Oaks, CA

Referred by esthetician, and had heard about him and seen his work before that referral, so I guess I was referred many times by the community and personally. Dr. Azar was referred to me by my esthetician, Corinnne Frayssinet. I've gone to him for several years now and have seen his liposuction and facelift work first hand. Although I see him for facial products, Botox and Juviderm, I've been to other doctors in my 47 years and can say he is truly and artist and always follows my requests for minimal invasion and a natural look. He's changed my skin for the better with the prescription skin care products as well.

I Would Never Go to Anyone else Dr. Azar is Amazing! - Thousand Oaks, CA

Not only is he a fantastic plastic surgeon with a steady skilled hand and good eye for seeing the simple details that can be fixed to help make me look more beautiful, he's also a man of great integrity as well. I once asked him to do a procedure and he said no because it wasn't necessary and if I was one of his sisters he wouldn't let me do that.... That's why I feel so safe going to him. Another doctor with less integrity may have done that procedure for me in my moment of obsessive insecurity just to make money, but instead having him tell me I didn't need the procedure made my insecurity go away, and now I'm so glad he didn't let me do that! He's truly amazing. At least 3 of my other friends go to him and we all love him and think he's the absolute best! Not just as a doctor, but as person and an expert in his field.
