5 out of 5 stars Chin Implant

Dr. Chaboki is the best!

Great experience, Dr. Chaboki was extremely knowledgeable and helped me to understand the underlying physiology that caused me to have a weak chin in the first place. He was very understanding when I changed from XL implant to L to M, and helped me to understand the full result I'd get from liposuction and a chin implant. He called me at home the day after my surgery to check on me. The...

excellent surgeon for septo and rhinoplasty

I spent years dealing with a severely deviated septum - regularly taking sudafed and nasal spray to deal with congestion, recurring sinus infections, and overall breathing difficulty (almost completely blocked on one side). Eventually I decided to do something about it, did some research, and visited several ENTs and plastic surgeons in the DC area. Although my primary reason for surgery was...

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Great. Professional. Quick. Painless. Satisfied - Washington DC, DC

I saw reviews from this site and saw that many people were satisfied with their results so I went to him for my procedure and I am happy to say that I am very satisfied with his work, intelligence, and professionalism. Dr. Chaboki is very professional and intelligent in his plastic surgery business. I found him using reviews and saw a lot of good reviews about his work. I scheduled an appointment in Washington and I live in Pittsburgh. Being on vacation for only a week, I told Dr. Chaboki my situation and he was able to get me in and perform what was needed so I can get back to work ASAP. During my consultation, he reassured me with any questions I had and helped me understand what is best for my condition. I had double eyelid surgery to fix one of my eyes since one was mono lid and the other was double lid. Dr. Chaboki is well known for his procedure known as "Asian Eyelid Surgery". In a coupe of days, I came back and got the surgery done and the procedure took a half hour and it was painless throughout the process. The healing time was 8 wees and Dr. Chaboki would call me to check up on how I was doing and any questions I would have. His follow-ups were painless and simple and scheduling was really flexible for my schedule. Overall, I am very satisfied with the surgery and Dr. Chaboki is a trusted surgeon in my view.

Dr. Chaboki - Best Dr. for Conservative Rhinoplasty - Washington DC, DC

I am also extremely pleased with the cosmetic portion - Dr. Chaboki was very conservative (which I wanted) and the results look identical to the computer simulation he did beforehand. No one (except for friends and family I told about the operation beforehand) can even tell I had a nose job. In addition to his surgical expertise Dr. Chaboki and his staff are extremely kind and always available. Do not hesitate to schedule a consultation with Dr. Chaboki - he truly is the best!

56-year Old for Much Needed Blepharoplasty on Both Eyes - Washington DC, DC

Due to aging and genetic reasons I had droopy eyelids that were blocking my vision and making me always felt tired and looked tired. I needed blepharoplasty, and I wanted my eyelid surgery done carefully not only to improve my visual field but also to get natural looking results. Because I have seen some people who looked very cosmetic after their eyelid procedures, I was very cautious in...
