Dr. Baharestani is Incredible! - Smithtown, NY

Dr. Baharestani is a gifted surgeon and true artist. I wish I could tell every person on Long Island who is considering cosmetic eyelid surgery to only see him and not waste your time with others. He is fantastic!!

Dr. Baharestani is a Genius! - Smithtown, NY

There aren't enough great words in the dictionary to describe Dr. Baharestani. He is kind, patient, professional, highly skilled, and extremely talented. North Shore Eye Care has gone above and beyond to make sure that I always have confidence in their hands.

Upper Eyelid Surgery for Long Island Mom. Smithtown, NY

Dr. Baharestani was the ideal surgeon for me from the moment he walked in the room. His office is beautiful and his staff is top notch. He made me feel comfortable and answered all of my questions. I'm so glad I decided to have surgery with him. After a week of recovery, I already look and feel great!

5 out of 5 stars Juvederm

Dr Baharestani is the Only Doctor I Trust with my Lips! - Long Island, NY

I met Dr. Baharestani after his staff brought me right into a private consultation room. I think he would have treated me like a VIP anyway, but after I mentioned all my friends whom he knew, we were really given the star treatment. I was a little nervous because I had never done anything like it before, but Dr Baharestani guided me through the process. The procedure was practically PAINLESS! His assistant and cosmetic coordinator went over some post procedure instructions. Now I have natural beautiful plumped lips and owe it all to the talents of Dr Baharestani. He is confident and experienced. I will be recommending him to everyone I know for their lips!

5 out of 5 stars Hyaluronidase

Grateful Patient! - Smithtown, NY

I had persistent swelling under my left eye of unknown etiology. It was very troubling & embarrassing & I was wearing glasses at all times to hide it. Another doctor I saw before seeing Dr. Baharestani said it looked like "tissue necrosis" but did not know what to do about it. My history included Juviderm injections under both eyes well over a year prior to this problem & also a mosquito bite around that area several months prior. I found Dr. Baharestani by chance, when I did a search for an Ophthalmic Plastic Surgeon. When I made the appointment, I did not know if it would be for a medical or a cosmetic reason. Well, after hearing my history & careful examination, Dr. Baharestani was sure that the problem was a delayed reaction from the Juviderm injections. In fact, he had even published a paper on this very topic! He injected hyaluronidase & before I even left his office, the "bag" was gone! I cannot describe how relieved I felt. Had I not found him, who knows if other, less informed doctors would have done unnecessary procedures such as a biopsy?? I am considering lower blephoroplasty in the future & I would not trust anybody other than Dr. Baharestani to do it! Dr. Baharestani is caring, confident, skilled, intelligent, & trustworthy. Highly recommend.

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

59 Yo with Large Undereye Bags and Sagging Upperlids - Smithtown, NY

My upper lids were sagging and ageing. Makeup was inadequate in disguising my dark under eye lids. I looked tired and puffy all the time. I had been considering the need to improve my appearance around my eyes. I researched the procedure necessary and ocular plastic surgeons. When I had my first consultation with Dr. Samuel Baharastani I immediately knew I had met the best .

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Botox/Dr Baharestani-5 Stars! Smithtown, NY

If you're interested in Botox, I highly recommend Dr Baharestani. I went in for a little preventative work on my forehead and the results are amazing! The procedure was quick and easy with no pain or side effects. Dr Baharestani was very informative and took the time to answer all of my questions. I can't wait for my next appointment!
