5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
I spent hours upon hours scouring this website looking at other women's results and attempting to find the best surgeon for me. When I came across Dr. Kurkjian's profile, I didn't see a single post-BA photo that I didn't like; all of the breast augmentations that he performed and had photos of looked amazing on each woman and seemed to fit their body perfectly. As soon as I realized how much I loved his work, I went to his website and filled out the "contact us" form since it was a Sunday and I didn't want to forget to call them the next day. Shortly after submitting the form, Dr. Kurkjian himself emailed me letting me know that they'd do their best to get me in for a consultation that week and that I'd hear from his office staff the next day. On Monday, his office manager contacted me and we set my consultation for the following day. At my consultation, his entire staff made me feel as comfortable as possible and greatly decreased my anxiety about the procedure by answering all of my questions. Dr. Kurkjian, his nurse Cari, and I then discussed what look I was going for and what my body could handle. I wanted an extremely natural appearance, and using his 3D vector imaging software, Dr. Kurkjian was able to show me exactly what each implant size would look like on my body (give or take some accuracy on the exact shape). I felt as though Dr. Kurkjian, Cari, and I were on the same page throughout the entire consultation and that they truly understood what I wanted and knew what would be best for me so I scheduled my breast augmentation for that coming Friday. The morning of the procedure, I was really anxious and a little scared but Dr. Kurkjian was able to calm my nerves by telling me exactly what he would be doing and that he has done tons of these procedures in the past so I had nothing to worry about. I am now 4 days post-op and am extremely pleased with the outcome of the surgery as well as Dr. Kurkjian's constant availability for questions. Any time I've had a concern since the surgery, I've been able to contact Dr. Kurkjian himself and have heard back almost instantly each time. I cannot recommend this surgeon and his staff highly enough, and can honestly say that even if I don't live near his practice in the future, if I ever need anything done again I will fly back to Texas for him to do it.

This entire staff was nothing but EXCELLENT. I had a great experience from the first consultation. They are kind, patient, and understanding. Dr. Kurkjian always made time to explain everything thoroughly and made sure I was comfortable and confident in my decision. Everything you want in a Doctor that is going to alter your face. 5 stars all the way!

He was attentive, respectful and honest, he made himself available to answer questions at any time before and after the procedure. He is without a doubt the best option.
5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants
I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Dr. Kurkjian. Before choosing my doctor, I had been a total of 5 doctors across DFW. However, my experience with Dr.Kurkjian made the decision to move forward with my breast lift and augmentation an easy one. I was nervous at first as he is younger than some of the other doctors I visited. However his knowledge, professionalism, and staff made me feel very confident. I would like to highlight a few things that set Dr. Kurkjian apart. (1) He has by far the best technology available for consultations. The 3D imaging is far superior to the other offices I visited. While the other offices have an Ipad with fuzzy, borderline cartoonish renderings, Dr. Kurkjian has a system I did not see anywhere else. The 3D renderings looked like “me” rather than a copy pasted mannequin. We were able to look at many different options and what they would actually look like on me. Being 2 months out to the day, I would say that the technology can give you an excellent idea what to expect. However, I would say my results are better than what I was shown in the 3D rendering. (2) Dr. Kurkjian has mastered the art of a minimally painful procedure. After reading stories of woe of painful recovery online, I was prepared for a lot of pain after waking up. However, the pain was almost nonexistent. Considering I had a lift with sub-muscular implants, this is truly remarkable. While pain tolerance varies from person to person, how much pain one experience also relies on the skill of the doctor. Dr. Kurkjian knows what he is doing. (3) Dr. Kurkjian has wonderful bedside manner. I felt like I was the only patient in his practice and that he truly cared about me, my well-being, and my results. Also, he’s nice to be around. This may sound trivial, but while my nerves were running high on the morning of my procedure, Dr.Kurkjian was caring and put my mind at ease. He even got a laugh or two out of me. He made himself completely available after surgery. He never hesitated to respond to every minute concern I had. I was sending him pictures at all hours and getting reassuring answers. It made the whole experience outstanding. (4) The staff in the office are phenomenal. They run the office very well. With a very busy schedule, it is nice to know I will not be waiting around at an appointment. I had an issue with the company that I financed through, the receptionist handled that completely for me. Dr. Kurkjian’s nurse is very professional and knowledgeable. My experience with the staff has been all around positive. (5) Last but certainly not least is my results are AMAZING. So much more than I expected! I had a minor case of tubular breast constriction which meant that a lift was my best option even though I had never breastfed or had round breast to start with. The idea of a lift and the associated scaring was scary. However, my scars have healed beautifully and the shape Dr.Kurkjian achieved is spectacular. If I had known this would be the outcome, I would have done it years ago. I cannot express how pleased I am with my results. I feel like I look exceptional. I cannot recommend Dr. Kurkjian enough. I have told all of my friends, family, and even strangers about him, his practice, and my experience. I am very glad I chose Dr. Kurkjian and will be a repeat patient in the future.

I did my homework in searching for a surgeon including several consults. Upon my initial appointment with Dr. Kurkjian, I knew I had found the surgeon for me. I scheduled my breast lift for the next week. My results were absolutely stunning. I am currently 5 weeks post op and I highly recommend Dr. Kurkjian and his staff.
5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
I have never loved my nose. When I was probably about 12 or 13, I noticed it started to not really fit in with my face and as I aged, it only worsened. I had a pretty pronounced "bump" with a bulbous tip and was always very self-conscious about my side profile especially. I had considered getting plastic surgery but never took the plunge or got a consultation. But over the last 2 years, I...
