Dr Motlagh did a wonderful job with my breast reduction. He guided me on all of my decisions and helped with any questions and concerns I had during the healing process. I went from a DDD on a very small body frames causing major headaches and neck/back issues to a full C/D and I’ve never felt better. I couldn’t thank him enough for his work and team.

I’ve never met a doctor that made you feel so comfortable. Having a breast reduction is a very scary thing. He explained every thing very well. The morning of the surgery I was so nervous and the second I saw him I knew I would be okay. He did a phenomenal job. I went from a G cup to a C and now I have no more back and neck pain!! I feel like a I have a new lease on life. Thank you doctor!!

In June 2018 I had a breast reduction by Dr. Motlagh. I had pain in my back, shoulders, neck, and carried such weight in my pendulous breast. I researched about a reduction. I also looked at many before and after pictures of reduction surgeries. I visited a few bra stores to be sure I was choosing the right size for me. Dr. Motlagh did a super job, answered all of my questions, and was extremely professional. I love my new breast. I feel beautiful. I highly recommend Dr. Motlagh.

I was referred to Dr Motlagh after 2 un successful lumpectomys. He was upfront, honest and realistic about my results. I told him I didn't expect to look like Barbie but wanted to be comfortable in my own skin. He performed immediate reconstruction after my double mastectomy. I spent 1 night in hospital with minimal pain. It has been 3 months of follow ups as he made sure I was healing properly. I was just released from care. Final result is great and I could not be happier that I stayed local.

Dr. Motlagh is a very professional surgeon and I recommend him to all people because he has done a tremendous job of removing my cyst. It has healed so well that others do not notice it because of how well he stitched the place where my cyst was located. I am very pleased of the outcome. I highly recommend Dr. Motlagh for removing anything, including skin cancer, tumors, and more.

Upon going to Dr Motlagh, I was so nervous and a little scared, all my questions were answered and my mind put to rest. He also has the best bedside manner and kindness in his voice. The kind of doctor every woman wants to go to and have a professional relationship with. He is such a good surgeon, that I had absolutely NO pain, and that was one of my major concerns. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs his field of expertice. He is kind, soft spoken, and very good at his job.

I had breast augmentation done by Dr. Motlagh. I had to have it corrected by Dr. Harrison. Dr. Motlagh did not guide me in selecting the implant size. He left that to his nurses and the devices he had availble to assist were not very accurate in predicting the outcome. His staff also kept urging me to use larger implants. As a result my breasts were much too large and it cost me $5000 to have it reduced. He is too much flash and not enough skill or caring about his patients.

Not very knowledgeable regarding corrective acne scar procedures. Claimed "I don't know" about the likelihood of improvement with juvaderm which came off as non-confidence in his abilities.
