I went to Dr. Malek to have him fix what another plastic surgeon did to me when I was left with a horrible scar. He fixed it beyond my satisfaction, plus re-did my eyes, and a little lipo. He did a great job. He did it in his office which saved me a lot of money and time in a hospital. I don't understand the negative comments, other than to say that some expect more than is possible.
Hello, Ellen! We aim to deliver the best care to patients and love to hear positive experiences! Thanks for sharing this feedback!

Dr. Malek is the worst plastic surgeon on the surface of the earth. He is not only incompetent, but very wicked. I paid him $11,440 for a tummy tuck and liposuction. The outcome is horrible to say the least. My abdomen is still hanging the same way prior to surgery. When I complained, he said to me "if you want a perfect body, you will leave it behind." I still have a big hole in my belly button and he asked for $3,500 to get that fixed.

I have had problems with tear production since Dr. Malek operated on my eyes. I have to use ointment in my eyes every night in order to be able to sleep without pain. My advice to anyone is to stay away from this doctor, esp. for anything involving the eyes. I am very depressed about what was done to me.

Removed two small cysts on face. The resulting scar tissue + returned cyst is tem time worse than before the surgery. I was forced to go to another plastic surgeon to correct his mess. I would not recommend him to anyone; especially if it has to do with the face.

Amazing work. I am 30 and had belotero and botox. Until I was 29, I always looked youthful. Work and studying caught up to me and my eyes suddenly looked older all within a year. Now, thanks to Dr. Malek I am back to looking like I am in my early to mid twenties again. Wonderful job. Thank you!
Thank you for taking the time and leaving such a wonderful review and we are so happy that you love your results!
