I have great confidence in Dr Mehryar Taban’s expertise and highly recommend seeking his advice if considering oculoplastic surgery. I am VERY happy with the results of my surgery with Dr Taban. My eyes look more natural and – importantly -- I feel I look like myself again.
Thank you Charlotte for your feedback! You did great with eyelid surgery.

Dr. Mehryar Taban has an amazing ability to see what in needed to be fixed and how to fix it. I had one failed eyelid surgery and was sent to Dr Taban. He gave me all the options and was able to fix the eyelid that had failed but also at the same time fix the other eyelid so I wouldn't continue to drooping eyelids.The surgery went well and my eyes have completely healed. I am very thankful for Dr Taban and his great skill and caring. I would highly recommend Dr Taban for any kind of eye surgery.
Thank you Sandy for your feedback! I am happy I could perform revision eyelid surgery to fix your problem.
in Oxnard, CA |
Dr Taban made me feel very confident in his analysis and options that he presented to me after having a basal cell skin cancer removed from my eyelid. He did a great job of my surgery and I would suggest him in the future
Thank you James for your feedback! You did great with eyelid skin cancer surgery.
in Santa Barbara, CA |
Dr. Taban is excellent. I had upper and lower blepharoplasty without anesthesia and experienced no negatives. And I am very pleased with my results: very natural, but I look refreshed and younger. Will certainly recommend. Thank you Dr. Taban.
Thank you A.B. for your feedback! You did great with cosmetic eyelid surgery.

Words cannot explain how much my life has changed since the life changing procedure/surgery. I had orbital decompression, lower eyelid retraction, and orbital rim tear trough implants. I've been wanting to do this surgery for a long time and I've spent a great deal of time doing extensive research into this surgical procedure. After the consultation with Dr. Taban, I finally felt I found someone who I trusted to do the orbital decompression. He was thorough in explaining the process and exceed
Thank you for your feedback! I am happy for you.

I had a great experience as a patient of Dr. Taban. I got a consultation appointment quickly for scar tissue that remained on my eyelid after a stye. At the appointment, Dr. Taban performed the surgery right then and there, no need to come back a different day. His gifted hands not only restored my appearance pre-stye, but post-surgery there was absolutely zero swelling, zero bruising, zero pain. I highly recommend him!
Thank you Rey for your feedback! I am glad I could help you with the persistent eyelid stye-chalazion.
Dr. Taban as very competent and very professional. I had an upper/lower eyelid surgery, along with a Pretrichial eyebrow lift in March 2017. I am very happy with the results. There is no eyelid scarring and it looks very natural. I would recommend Dr. Taban if you're looking to have this type of surgery.
Thank you for your feedback! You did great with your eyelid surgery. Happy for you and your results.
Beverly Hills, CA |
I had sunken right eye (called enophthalmos) from right orbital fracture resultant from sinus surgery. My eye was sunken and fallen below the other eye into the maxillary sinus. I was referred to Dr. Taban by another physician as he is known for complex orbital surgery. He evaluated my eye and CT scan and recommended orbital implant to reconstruct the orbital walls. The surgery was performed successfully using hidden inside eyelid incision. I truly thank Dr. Taban for his amazing work.
Thank you for your feedback! I am happy I could help you with your sunken eye problem.
in Bakersfield, CA |
Dr. Taban has taken such wonderful care of my son since he was a baby. Dr. Taban is a phenomenal surgeon. My son has needed eyelid surgeries for his droopy eyelid condition, and Dr. Taban has been exceptional in being able to maintain my son's Asian eye shape. Dr. Taban shows so much care and concern for his patients. My husband and I are extremely grateful for his follow up calls after surgery to see how my son has been doing.
Thank you for your feedback! It has been a pleasure taking care of your son since he was a baby.
Los Angeles, CA |
After having a car accident back in 2010 mi sinuses were not draining as before and lower eyelid bags started to appear. This started to be a problem on my profesional career and I was lucky enough to find Dr. Taban, who gave me the confidence to proceed with a lower blepharoplasty. I recommend Dr. Taban to anyone considering any type of eye procedure. His professionalism was something that caught my eye since the first day, and I would like to thank the doctor and all his staff for everything.
Thank you for your feedback! I am glad I could help you with lower blepharoplasty.
in Panorama City, California |
Dr. Taban is a miracle doctor. I am 18 years old and had Graves Disease since my early teens causing Graves Eyes Disease. I saw him on The Doctors show where he performed Orbital Decompression on one of his patients for bulgy eyes. It has been two months since my surgery and the results are better than I expected. My results seem unreal because I still can’t believe how great it turned out. Dr. Taban really changed my life, I'll be grateful forever.
Thank you Lilit for your feedback! You were a pleasure to help. I am very happy for you.
Los Angeles, CA |
Dr. Ray Taban is literally a miracle worker. Unfortunately the character limitations will not let me delve into the amazing work he's done. You can check other review sites for this. What Taban did was unbelievable. Through canthoplasty, tear trough implants (on the orbital rim), lower lid retraction, orbital decompression, and slight lowering of the upper eyelid (on the left eye), I now have hooded eyes (I am male; this was intended), a extreme sweeping effect, and a high canthus position.
Thank you for your feedback! I appreciate it. I am very happy for your surgical outcome and you.
Dr. Taban is an artist and I feel so lucky to have been referred to him. I never imagined that my surgery would not only have corrected my lower eyelid retraction (post lower blepheroplasty) but that it would look so natural! I am eternally thankful to Dr. Taban. I feel like I have my life back! I would recommend anyone interested in any procedure for their eye’s to Dr. Taban. He’s not only an empathetic human being, and excellent communicator, he is an exceptional surgeon!
Thank you for your personal feedback! I am glad I could help you restore your beautiful eyes and regain your confidence. You did amazing throughout the process.

I would highly recommend Dr. Mehryar Taban for any and all oculoplastc surgery. He did a DCR encoscopic surgery on my left eye for constant tearing. I am happy and pleased with the permanent results; he is a compassionate and expert surgeon. Thank you again Dr.Taban. D.Giorgio, Buellton, CA.
Thank you Dolores for your feedback! You did great throughout the treatment for your blocked tear duct. I am happy for you.
in Tehachapi, CA |
A picture says a thousand words. Dr. Taban is not only a brilliantly skilled, knowledgeable and gifted surgeon, he is genuinely kind and compassionate. He explained every step of my surgery and answered every question. And encouraged questions and thoughts or concerns. I underwent revision eyelid ptosis, blepharoplasty, brow lift, fat injections and filler injections. My procedure was done under a local anesthesia. What was supposed to be a one hour surgery turned into a 4 hour surgery due to
Thank you Yvette for your personal feedback! I am glad I could help you fix your difficult eyelid problems.
in Los Angeles, CA |
Doctor Taban is a great and wonderful physican. His calm, confident, professional, and caring demeanor put me at ease before, during and after my eye surgery. He explained the entire procedure and was always happy to answer all of my questions. Doctor Taban was highly recommended by my ophthalmologist and together they formed an outstanding tandem in caring for my eye.
Thank you for your feedback! I am glad I could help you with your eye problem.

I was looking for a Doctor to perform Lower eyelid retraction surgery. I found Dr. Taban on Realself and right away I had a great experience. His office responded so fast to my request for a consultation. I live in New Mexico, which was not a problem. The Skype consultation was a great experience and I knew right after that Dr. Taban was the best choice for my surgery. He made me feel very comfortable and answered any questions or concerns I had. Upon meeting him the day before surgery, I
Thank you Shane for your feedback! I am glad your trip from New Mexico to Beverly Hills for eyelid surgery went great.
in Los Angeles, CA |
Extremely knowledgeable and incredibly skilled! Dr. Taban quickly diagnosed me with a sunken eye (endophthalmitis) from Silent Sinus Syndrome and worked closely with me throughout my surgery and aftercare. I would not trust my eyes with anyone else! He conducted an orbital reconstruction with orbital implant, and this was combined with sinus surgery. Had a wonder experience and am so thankful for the amazing results! My face looks back to normal and eyesight is perfect.
Thank you Ava for your personal feedback! I am glad I could fix your sunken eye (enophthalmos).
Santa Barbara, CA |
I’m very grateful that I found Dr. Taban. He did an epicanthoplasty after an unsuccessful upper blepharoplasty done by another surgeon. From the moment I visited him I felt in good hands. His staff and office are immaculate. He is extremely knowledgeable about difficult cases, and makes one feel at ease. He explained the situation to me, and ensured me that he could help while giving me realistic expectations. My outcome was better than I could have hoped for. I would highly recommend Dr. Taban!
Thank you for your personal feedback! Thank you for trusting me with your revision cosmetic eyelid surgery and glad you has such good outcome.
in Boston, MA |
I was suffering from lower eyelid retraction ever since I had a bad blepharoplasty several years ago. Thankfully I found Dr. Taban on the Internet and after a consultation with him I scheduled an appointment for a retraction repair surgery that would use skin grafts from my upper eyelids to fix the retraction. Now several months after the surgery I'm very happy with the results. I am glad that I picked Dr. Taban as my surgeon.
Thank you Chris for your personal feedback! You did great with revision eyelid procedure after previous failed blepharoplasty.
in Santa Barbara, CA |
I was referred to Dr. Taban for squamous cell skin cancer surgery repair of the lower eyelid. The procedure involved taking a slice of skin from the upper eyelid and grafting it onto the lower lid...so I was a bit nervous about the outcome, and just hoped for a "normal" looking eye. Well, I've healed (very quickly!) and I am beyond happy with the results! My eye looks amazing.. Friends and family can not tell that I had any surgery at all;) Thank you Dr. Taban!
Thank you Courtney for your feedback! You did great with your reconstructive eyelid skin surgery.
in El Paso, TX |
Dr Taban is absolutely wonderful! Im so great full I choose him for my surgery. I have thyroid eye disease (TED) and had orbital decomposition done on both eyes . Dr. Taban and his staff made me feel welcomed, answered all my questions and concerns, Made sure I understand what to expect with my surgery. After my consultation I drove to the surgical center Down the street which is very convenient. They were also very helpful. THANK YOU DR TABAN I love the way my eyes look!!
Thank you Lorena for your feedback! I am glad I could help you with your difficult bulging eye problem from Graves disease.

in Miami, FL |
I will always be grateful to Dr. Taban and highly recommend him. He is the best oculoplastic surgeon in the US who helped me improve my image. The first procedure I had with Dr. Taban was an orbital decompression surgery. It was an important step for me to gain back my confidence. A couple a weeks ag I went back to Dr. Taban to have Xanthelasm (fat deposits) from my upper eye lids removed and results were phenomenal.

I would highly recommend Dr. Taban for any Eye procedure. I had bulgy eyes my whole life and thought there would be no fix. Luckily, I found Dr. Taban. I had Orbital Decompression Surgery. This surgery changed my life. I now have eyes that I love. I cannot thank Dr. Taban enough for the miracle he performed!
Thank you Evan for your feedback! You were a great patient throughout the process and happy for your results.
in Santa Barbara, CA |
I see Dr Taban twice a year to deal with my deep squint lines (which make me look angry when I'm not). Dr Taban expertly and successfully takes care of this for me. He has a gentle, low-key manner. I especially appreciate that he listens to what I want and doesn't try to talk me into other procedures. His staff is helpful, pleasant and professional.
in Los Angeles, CA |
I visited Dr. Taban for Botox injection for my frown lines, crow's feet and forehead wrinkles. He had treated my friend who was very happy with the treatment. Dr. Taban explained in detail the problems with eyelid and facial aging. I decided to proceed with Botox treatment, which he did that day. It has been a week now and I can honestly say I am very happy with the natural results. I look more rested, without the frozen look. I will definitely be back Dr. Taban!
in Los Angeles, CA |
I took my mother to visit Dr. Taban for droopy upper eyelid surgery and under eye bags surgery. We were very impressed by his demeanor and expertise in eye plastic surgery. He described what the problem was, why it happened, and what treatment was recommended (blepharoplasty). My mom scheduled her surgery under local anesthesia. She was amazed how painless the recovery was. And she is more amazed about the natural yet youthful results. We can't thank Dr. Taban enough for his excellent work!
in Los Angeles, CA |
I was referred to Dr Taban for a stye that wouldn't heal and had formed an infection and some scar tissue. His office got me in right away and they were super friendly and helpful. My first appointment was great, he saw the issue and made time to do a surgical repair right then and there. Dr Taban is incredibly skilled, informative and efficient. I went for my follow up today and all is well. I do not hesitate to recommend Dr Taban and his office for eyelid related issues!
in Beverly Hills, California |
I didn't quite take care of my skin during my late teens and 20's. I was a heavy smoker, a tanning bed user, lived in sunny Florida and spent a lot of time at the beach. I failed to use spf.. As a result of this my skin prematurely aged with dark sun spots, slight loss of elasticity and fine lines around my eyes. After a wonderful experience with Dr. Taban for epicanthroplasty, I went to see him for a chemical peel. The results are phenomenal!!! my skin is like a babies bum! :)
in Santa Barbara, CA |
I was treated for brow lift, ptosis, and benign neoplasm of lower eyelid. Dr. Taban is excellent in explaining the procedures and the post operative work.
in Los Angeles, CA |
I feel very safe with its direct analysis, I made a quick and efficient surgical procedure and recovery was very good and healthy is an excellent professional, 100% recommended
