5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Full Tummy Tuck W/ Lipo of Flanks - Walnut Creek, CA

Dr. Behmand is talented,knowledgeable, patient and humble! I am so happy i found him! Highly respected and recommended!

5 out of 5 stars Mini Lift

44 Yrs Old; Mini Facelift/ Fat grafting - Walnut Creek, CA

t's now been 2 weeks but I see enough to feel comfortable writing a review. If anyone is here because they are researching cosmetic surgeons, go ahead and wrap up; you can't get better than Dr. Behmand. I was very nervous about cosmetic surgery. I wrote it off altogether and was about to cancel my appt, but decided to get voluma injections in my 'frownies' and kept the consultation as a side note. After my meeting, I went on to schedule my surgery a few days later. There are people out there who can look at anything and see beauty. Dr. Behmand does that with his patient's face and body. I"m so pleased with the results, and best of all: I had no bruising. I also needed no pain meds after 24 hours. In all, this was a very positive experience for me and I could not have chosen a better surgeon.

5 out of 5 stars Drainless Tummy Tuck

36 years old, 3 kids. Updated pics of LBL, BBL, and hernia repair!!!!! Walnut Creek, CA

I love him so far. He's patient, calm, confident. He explained how to give me the body I desire and did not mention a single other flaw. His practice automatically carries CosmetAssure, which I think is very responsible. His staff and office are comfortable and professional. His prices are a little higher than some others in the area, but this is one area in my life that I don't think the decision should be based on pricing. This is my body and I will have to live with the outcome.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

Best Decision, Best Results with the Best Doctor! - Walnut Creek, CA

Nothing but praise for this man! This list could be long - Dr. Behmand is very down to earth, calm, honest, knowledgable, and a nice person. He was very straightforward and took time during our consultation. I felt very relaxed about moving forward with him. He was honest about the recovery time, healing process (I am a hairdresser and he said he wouldn't even consider it if I couldn't take 3 weeks off) and the office is a great support! Scars in Breast Lift's have always been a deterrent - but they are barely visible! He is so good!!! My results way surpass what I thought could be possible for me. They are proportionate for my body, and super natural looking. I feel so lucky I had him as my Doctor.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck - Walnut Creek, CA

I loved his before and afters. Office staff were wonderful on the phone when i called for the first time and even better in person. He is just an all around great guy, not cocky like a lot of surgeons but still aggresive in his approach and results. He is a God without a God complex..... Love this man... And he's kinda handsome.... I mean that's always a plus, right?

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

The Small Boob Genes

Dr. Behmand is very thorough and professional. He doesn't pressure you into a rediculous sized implant, and let's you know what fits your body type best. Gen takes time to fully answer your questions and let's you know what to expect. I am so happy with my surgery with him!

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

I Now Recognize the Girl in the Mirror! - Walnut Creek, CA

After consulting 4 surgeons I choose Dr. Behmand to perform a tummy tuck (with recommended flank lipo), breast aug, and hernia repair. I choose him because he was able to perfrom the hernia repair himself, was willing to do all of the procedures at once, didn't use drains, was able to work with my insurance, and the before and after pictures on his website were amazing. It felt silly relying so much on the before and after pictures, and you should definitely ask any surgeon what he thinks your results will be, but without a referral it helped a lot to weed out different surgeons. I assume surgeons put their best pictures up and if you don't like those pictures, you can't expect your results to be any better. Dr. B is also very gentle, confident, experienced, and what I call "no-nonsense." I read horror stories about managing all sorts of pills, drains, massages, walkers, etc. He didnt sell or insist on all the popular supplements. He also let me pick whatever size implant I wanted. Some doctors wouldn't go more than a very modest size(275ish) based on measurements they took. Dr. B recommended a size that I could go up to and still look natural (and not freak me out) (425), and I choose a size a bit smaller with something I was more comfortable with (350). Just be prepared for his schedule to be busy. I had to wait quite a bit for my consultation and the pre and post op appointments weren't ideal. It was a relatively small inconvenience to work around compared to how important this surgery is. I was super nervous before the surgery, but when Dr. B came in to do my markings before being wheeled off I suddenly felt much better. He was all smiles and made a few jokes, which I probably would have appreciated more if my stomach didn't feel all twisted in knots. Several nurses all talked about how meticulous he is and what a great job he does. My one advice for recovery is patience and try not to look and stress over the results too soon. Dr. Behmand gave me one of the highest quotes, but I've learned in life that you get what you pay for. And when it comes to something as life changing as cosmetic surgery, you don't want to skimp out. I can say that even just 3 weeks post-op the results were definitely worth it.
