“Besides being a great surgeon, Dr Nazarian carries a line for PREGNANT women called Spa Momma which is made-in-the-USA with no lead, phthalates, formaldehyde, propylene glycol, and no pregnancy-contraindicated aromatherapy oils!!!!!! I am obsessed with the body oil and the body scrub! I was having some major itching issues and I tried everything but nothing really helped. Then I tried the itchies body oil and it was the first relief I had had in months and I have no stretch marks!!!!!!!! Dr Nazarian is so up to date and science based and is willing to take time and help you out no matter what you issue is!!! I love her professionalism and recommend 110%!

After having a facelift procedure elsewhere years ago, I felt asymmetric. I went to Dr. Nazarian hoping for an improvement. Luckily, she was able to straighten me out and more! She used some botox to even out my eyebrows. She injected filler in my cheeks and temples to make me look younger and more symmetric. I was so afraid to look unnatural and weird but I couldn’t be happier. Customer for life!

I am going to write another review since I had to have another nose surgery from the lovely Dr.Nazarian. I always had a hard time breathing through my nose and blamed it on allergies. Now that I have had nose surgery my breathing is so much better. As a active professional athlete this is crucial for my sport and my future modeling career :p I’m sure this will not be my last surgery since I fight for a living but I feel safe in Dr. Nazarians care. I highly recommend her to anyone.

I met Dr. Nazarian through her husband who I selected for my spinal surgery. I include this fact as it is important for those seeking plastic surgery to understand she keeps good company. My story may be slightly different as a few years ago I would have never considered plastic surgery. I have always liked myself- that is until I was hit by a car on a bike ride and had to undergo spine surgery just to sit/walk pain free again. There is no other way to state it except the last 1.5 years of my life has really sucked.

I am in my “prime” as they say, in my early 30’s, and I own my own company. I should feel wonderful about my accomplishments (even though I started my own company because I had no choice to keep a job after being hit by a car). Never-the-less, even after my spine surgery I felt terrible about myself. Dr. Nazarian’s husband really fixed me up and I don’t think I’ll have any back pain in the future. However, the lingering weight gain that I’ve had (about 15 lbs) just really bothered me. Not to mention I developed a belly and some boob sagging because I was much more muscular before my surgery. Although my friends and family say I looked good- I didn’t feel good about myself.

I started working out following my spine surgery but I can’t maintain what I once had. I’m not fat by any means of the word but the drooping muscles were just heart breaking to me. I wasn’t ready to give up my confidence– since technically it was stolen from me.

Dr. Nazarian has a lot of experience and is recognized for her work at USC. I was happy to find this information about her. I expressed to her the results I was looking for (which at first were much more extensive). But then she gave me a real expectation of what I could do with my body. She explained to me what results I would get if I went about lipo the way I wanted and she suggested taking out less fat and using a mini-tummy tuck to flatten my stomach to even it out. I have to say I was impressed that she went against what I originally thought I wanted to point out to me how I could get better results and have less risk of undesirable results. I have a feeling many doctors would strive to provide un-realistic results and she didn’t. She cared about how I was going to feel after she was done. There was a sense of pride in what she was doing as a career– but I also could feel her obligation to provide me happiness again.

My surgery went well. The pain was no where near as much as I thought it would be and after a week I was back on my feet. Dr. Nazarian was available for me by phone, text, and email with any questions and even allowed me to come in on off schedule just to make me feel better about my swelling about two days later. Since I’d never done anything like this before I was very nervous about everything. She was so re-assuring. It did remind me of her husband’s bedside manner which was very similar. They are a great family!

If you are seeking plastic surgery- I highly recommend Dr. Nazarian. Even with some swelling now I am blown away with my results. I’m now wearing shirts that I haven’t worn since before my accident because I don’t have my little belly pouch making me feel so bad about myself.

I don’t have anything against plastic surgery any longer. I now understand how a little help can make you feel so much better. I also understand how important it is to find the right doctor for your plastic surgery. Even though Dr. Nazarian was married to the man who I allowed to open my back (one of the most dangerous surgeries, I think) I still checked her out. And my research lead me to allowing trust in her.

You will get no pressure from Dr. Nazarian- and you might even get a lesson on how a little less plastic surgery can look more natural, provide the best results, and make you feel just as good as you ever wanted to feel.

Highly Recommended– and forever thankful.

Dear Dr. Nazarian,

 

Happy Anniversary! I’m sure you’re wondering, “Which Anniversary?” It was on this day exactly two years ago you and I met in the operating room at City of Hope. Last in the line-up of a half dozen male physicians, there you stood the lone female surgeon. You looked like an angel from above and I immediately felt a rush of relief wash over me. That may have been from the strong narcotics rushing through my veins at that moment, but your beauty, poise, smile and confidence filled the operating room like a warm ray of sunshine.

Although I’d never met you, I intrinsically trusted you.

After surgery, the first time you visited my bedside I cried. Instead of joining my Percocet fueled pity party, you challenged me saying, “Tiff, get out of bed and start your healing so you can get home to your children. You’re not a cancer patient anymore so get on with it.” You reminded me of my own inner strength and I pressed on with healing and with my life.

If there was a badge of greatness I could pin to your white doctor’s jacket for being the best surgeon ever, I would. However, it is I who wears the badge on my chest. It is a badge of bravery and beauty and I proudly display it in honor of your greatness. It is a badge of total badassery!

You’re an amazing woman, mother, friend, human and surgeon. Thank you for being you and for being in my life.

Yours Truly,

– James M. aka Moon Walker

I’m in the medical field and am extremely critical of surgeons. With that said, I 100% recommend Dr Nazarian. She’s amazing. Personally, I haven’t had surgery by her. I’ve had fillers, veins and other non-surgical procedures. Compared to my outcomes with other doctors (dermatologists, plastic surgeons), Dr Nazarian is far superior in both technique and personality. She has an extremely steady hand which is essential for reducing bruising. She’s also very detail oriented and has a tremendous artistic eye.

Being in her office, I’ve seen post-op surgical patients of Dr Nazarian. I’ve been quite impressed by the outcomes.

Any cosmetic procedure requires skill, knowledge of options and patience. Many doctors have great websites and fancy ads. However, they are often not able to adequately fulfill their promises. Dr Nazarian can deliver what she promises and doesn’t jeopardize the results.

I don’t work with Dr Nazarian nor am I in the plastics field. My opinion of her is based purely from experience and outcomes. She’s as good as it gets.

Today is post op day 1 from when Sheila battled (and won) against my juicy cyst. Not only did she contact me to make sure I’m not in pain (I didn’t want pain meds because I’m a preggo who is about to pop) but my incision is relatively pain free.

The only reason I remembered I had something removed is when I saw the clean steri-strips in the mirror or when I’m leaning back against a chair.

My incision site looks clean, I feel minimal pain. I’m so happy I went to see Sheila.

While searching for a plastic surgeon to do an otoplasty and chin implant I knew I wanted the very best. I found the best when I met Dr. Nazarian. Not only is she is a fantastic surgeon but she is also a kind, caring, and genuine person.

I came to see Dr. Nazarian a year after having a chin implant performed by a different surgeon. I was unhappy with the result and due to that was very hesitant to have surgery again. When I met and talked to Dr. Nazarian, all my worries were put at ease. She’s experienced and informative, and when my surgery came she achieved the exact results I wanted.

Before my surgery, I was always aware of my evl ars that stuck out and my non-existent chin. I was born with a genetic disorder that caused me to have both problems, and I knew plastic surgery could correct it one day. Now that I’ve had the surgery I can confidently look in the mirror and be happy with what I see. I’m glad I had the surgery and that I chose Dr. Nazarian to be my surgeon.

Dr. Sheila Nazarian,

After having a horrible experience at another Dr’s office, I came in to express how unhappy I was with the results of my Otoplasty. You offered hope and worked diligently to correct someone else’s MISTAKES!!! I just wanted to take this time to thank you, again. It has been something that has bothered me the majority of my life and ever since the corrective earlobe procedure; I can’t explain how happy I am. I can look at myself in the mirror and not be drawn to my botched ear job. I feel that interactions with others are not that uncomfortable as my new earlobes are much more symmetrical. Natural but ascetic and smaller but balanced. Best money I have ever spent. I wish I met you 20 years ago. Thank you for changing my life and for being such an inspiration!

Most importantly, I am ecstatic about the results of my procedure!!! She’s the best in every regard!!

Your biggest fan,

Joe Monsturr, Alhambra, CA

 

My procedure required a lengthy healing time and a couple follow up visits. Each visit went very well. I couldn’t be happier with her concern for the well being and satisfaction of her patients. She took the time out of her busy schedule to contact me and see how I was doing during and after the recovery process.

Most importantly, I am ecstatic about the results of my procedure!!! She’s the best in every regard!!

Evelyn R., Los Angeles, CA

P.S. The office and staff are super!!

I had the wonderful pleasure of meeting Dr. Nazarian today! One of my friends recommended this office and I am so thrilled and happy that I chose to come here for my procedure.

Dr. Sheila Nazarian made me feel so comfortable and at ease with what could of been a really awkward embarrassing experience. She really went above and beyond to make the experience as smooth as it could have been! She is truly passionate about what she does and it shows. I would recommend her to anybody that is considering any procedure, big or small! She’s truly lovely.

It should also be mentioned that her staff is also very polite and welcoming. It doesn’t hurt that the office itself is also very warm and has lovely decorum.

Dr. Nazarian is the a 5 star plastic surgeon! I had a growing scalp mass above my left ear, kinda like a cyst, she told me it was called lipoma. Anyway she removed the cyst in her office even when I was told by other doctors that it had to be done at a hospital which is more cost full and inconvenient for your wallet. She’s a great doctor and definitely recommend anyone to visit her office, her receptionist is on point and is very kind, helpful, and welcoming when visiting the office or calling about your appointment.

Thank you Dr. Nazarian.

Dr. Nazarian is an amazing surgeon and amazing woman! After being diagnosed with a rare skin cancer, she conducted a 6+ hour surgery ensuring I looked as beautiful as possible and she was successful. She is patient, dedicated, determined and thoughtful. I highly recommend her.

 Liz A.

Dr Nazarian is an amazing lady. She did a body lift on me on December 30, 2013 and had to put me back in for debredding of the infections and then she found out that I had no protein in my system. She put me on a wound vac and I ended up in the hospital for 1 month. She has been with me every step of the way. Her encouraging words helped me to keep going. It has been a long 5 months but I am almost healed now. I would go back to her to do it again if I needed it. I feel she is part of my family now. I would recommend her to others who need the body lift. I have learned that protein is very vital to your system. I will never be her starving child from Africa again.

Thank Dr Nazarian for your great work and support.

I had Breast Augmentation almost 2 weeks. I feel awesome and glad that I “FINALLY” had the Best Breast Augmentation done. I wasn’t sure what to expect at first, since I have never had surgery before and was a little frightened to be honest. After careful review of all 10 doctors I visited I knew Dr. Sheila Nazarian would be the Plastic Surgeon for me. She is compassionate and simply a good person. I love her and so does my whole family. If you are considering a Breast Augmentation you must see Dr. Nazarian. I noticed that Dr. Nazarian will only use top quality products and that says so very much to me. She will not rush and proceeds with caution. That to me is the mark of a great plastic surgeon. I will for ever be grateful to the person whom recommended her to me. Thank you Dr. Nazarian. I normally do not write any post but i’m gratefully and VERY happy with my breast augmentation, I will recommend to anyone to go in you will see the TLC that she gives to all her patients. She really cares.

I had been contemplating labiaplasty for some time and given the intimate nature of the surgery, choosing the right surgeon was essential. Luckily, a friend referred me to Dr. Nazarian and I couldn’t be happier! Not only was her bedside manner incredible, but I am absolutely in love with the results! She’s the best! She also took the time to contact me on a regular basis and ensure everything was healing properly!

Dr. Nazarian is an excellent surgeon. I was very happy with the results of my surgery. I did not have any complications with the surgery. She takes good care of you from the begginning to end of your care. I highly recommend her and for sure I would go back to her for any other procedures. She also did my fillers and was very please as well.

 Liz A.

Sheila is personable and informative. I was very comfortable having her upgrade my appearance. It is a year later and I am very pleased with having trusted her. I would recommend her to my friends and plan to be a regular visitor in the future.

Dr. Sheila Nazarian is an amazing doctor with excellent interpersonal skills. She cares deeply about her patients and provides care that results in quality outcomes. Be sure to check her out.

 Linda D.

Dr. Shelia Nazarin is a skillful surgeon and body artist. Her work is precise and I was delighted with the results of my surgery. I had a breast reduction that not only changed my shape physically but also lifted my spirits emotionally. She is a dedicated doctor who makes her patients feel at ease with her caring demeanor. I would use her again and will also highly recommend her to my friends.

Sheila in the Serbian language means sharp and she is the sharpest and one of the smartest residents that we have had from plastic surgery. She did fracture fixation better than many orthopaedic residents with four to five years of training. She is talented surgeon and she will be an asset for any program; not only as a surgeon but as great teacher as well. I had an opportunity to observe her teaching and I was impressed with her style of teaching and knowledge.

 Milan Stevanovic, MD( (USC Keck Hospital, Chief of Orthopedic Hand Surgery)

Great technical skills, talented and truly care for patients. She is a great asset to any health care system or academic institution.

 Alidad Ghiassi, MD( (Los Angeles County Hospital, Chief of Orthopedic Hand Surgery)

Dr. Nazarian had spent her previous 2 years in the lab and brought a great depth of knowledge in selected areas of pediatric plastic surgery that exceeded her peers. In fact while on service, her article, Is Presurgical Nasoalveolar Molding Therapy More Effective in Unilateral or Bilateral Cleft Lip Palate Patients?, was published in PRS (March, 2011). Her unbridled enthusiasm and above average surgical skill set was appreciated by our plastic surgery faculty. She progressed rapidly in acquiring the other skill sets in pediatric reconstruction at the Shrine ? hand, burn reconstruction, ear reconstruction – while multitasking the needs of both inpatient and outpatient patient settings. She won the confidence of our anesthesia staff, OR and nursing staff and was recognized as competent and trustworthy. She came well prepared for each case and progressed technically to well above average. In fact attending staff felt comfortable handing over complex cases to her and were not disappointed. She was the ubiquitous resident with a consistent style of compassion and confidence that put the families and staff at ease.
