Dr. Ghafouri is just wonderful. He did surgery on my brow and eyelid. The results are much better than I expected. He was very honest and didn't try to sell me the surgery, in contrast to other plastic surgeon I had seen in the past. Just go see him and don't waste your time with other surgeons

in Scottsdale |
He is very meticulous with his work. This is coming from me, a practitioner. He fixed exactly what was botched from another surgeon and I'm so grateful that he corrected it.
Scottsdale, AZ |
His explanation was concise, thorough and easy to understand. I immediately chose Dr. Ghafouri because Dr. Ghafouri has performed this procedure thousands of times over the years. Dr. Ghafouri performed my surgery and all went well. As the months went by with numerous follow up appointments I listened carefully to his instructions and followed them to the letter. Today there is absolutely no evidence I ever had an accident or any surgery at all. I look exactly as I did before the accident.
