I had lower eyelid surgery three years ago with doctor A (a well known doctor in the nation). After the surgery my lower eyelid dropped and my eyes appearances looked terrible! Not only that but even my entire face looked sad abnormal and defective. Also my vision worsened, my eyes became very dry with a lot of irritations... I went to another doctor (doctor B) Unfortunately I was so disappointed for the second time Ha made it even worse. Then I went to several doctors and they told me there is NO WAY TO FIX IT!!!!! I got very frustrated and felt very angry. They ruined my face, my eyes and my vision. Then light was there at the end of the tunnel when I heard about doctor Mehryar (Ray) Taban I can only describe doctor Taban’s procedure results on me by saying : “who ever gave up there is a hope called Mehryar Taban” “He is a hope and dream that can come true “ “He will fix it if th ey ruined it! “He will make it beautiful and even better”

Ptosis correction is an inherently difficult procedure that only ASOPRS surgeons can expertly perform. However, subtle ptosis correction is an even more complicated operation and something few surgeons are capable of and willing to undertake. I had, relatively speaking, a modest degree of ptosis for several years. It wasn't enough to impair my vision and mild by most standards but enough to make me look tired and unalert in photos. I went to several ASOPRS surgeons in my area who all suggested surgery was unwarranted and too difficult to perform. However, after researching Dr. Taban's extensive library of photos, I became convinced that if anyone could do it, it would be him. Fortunately, Dr. Taban agreed to help me, and I couldn't be happier with the result. His ptosis correction is subtle and natural, and I feel more awake and rested in photos. In addition to my ptosis correction, I had a cyst removed from a previous fat transfer to my lower eyelid area performed by another surgeon.

I was tired of always looking tired so after much research and a few different consults, I chose to go with Dr. Taban for lower and revision upper blepharoplasty. Doctor Taban took the time to explain the procedure to me. He also took time to listen and address my concerns. The procedure was simple and painless and I couldn’t be happier with the results. Dr Taban is a fabulous, caring, doctor, an absolute genius. I am grateful to Dr Taban and his staff for all they have done for me.

Today was my second visit to see Dr. Taban for upper eyelid filler, and it was truly a wonderful experience. I originally saw Dr. Taban over a year ago in his Santa Barbara office to express my concerns over my sunken in, wrinkly, and aging eyes. I was only 23 years old! He recommended 1 syringe of upper eyelid filler. Within 15 minutes of a comfortable and pain free experience, I walked out feeling like a new person. Although my visit was very short, the effect of his procedure on my confidence was astronomical. I felt like my age again! I now have youthful eyes, my eye makeup looks so much smoother, and I don’t think twice about having my picture taken. Now that it has been over a year, I wanted to touch up where the filler had gone down. This time, I only needed about half a syringe, and he offered to use the rest for my temples. The results are once again so stunning, yet extremely subtle and natural. I only trust Dr. Taban with such a delicate area, he is extremely well qualified,

Despite that we were in the middle of the covid crisis, my pre op appointments and surgery were very smooth. Dr. Taban is a most compassionate person who has very high standards. Healthcare has its challenges in this time yet Dr. Taban rises above those challenges creating a relationship of trust. I would consider it an honor to recommend Him.

Dr. Taban performed under eye lid surgery on me. I have been bothered by my under eye puffiness for a very long time until I found Dr. Taban. I am very pleased with the results that I got. I look refreshed and I also feel very happy. Thank you to Dr. Taban and staff for being welcoming and caring. Wish you all the best. Mickey.

I flew all the way from Atlanta for a one day trip to see doctor Taban. In my opinion he is the best at what he does. The treatment I received was the upper eyelid injections to fill out the hollowness of my lids due to a previous surgery. He took his time explaining the procedure and other procedures I plan to get date at a later time. I am very pleased with the results and I highly recommend him to anyone who has need for an eye surgeon.

DR. TABAN AGED ME 25 YEARS!!! Dealing with Dr. Taban was an utter nightmare and the surgical results were nothing short of horror. I underwent surgery for Ptosis and an accompanying Blepharoplasty. Dr. Taban added multiple eyelid creases giving me a hooded, reptilian appearance and the lids were unaligned. He was at a complete loss as to how to remedy his mess except to add filler — an absurd suggestion according to 2 other MDs who claimed fillers would only worsen the results due to the droop of added weight. Dr. Taban was unwilling to listen, refused to reimburse me a cent, and threw me out of his office! Dr. Taban may be a decent ophthalmologist but cosmetic surgery demands a fine hand and a good eye. He possesses neither. Physicians are held to a certain standard of integrity but Dr. Taban lacks ALL trace of a conscience. His lack of expertise combined with a refusal to be held accountable, sullies the noble profession of medicine.

Dr Taban misled me and took advantage of me. H assured me that the procedure was safe and less recovery than an alternate procedure which has NO risks.His Brochure does not indicate any risks. Worst of all, in the fine print is a re;ease from all responsibility, I have a paralyzed left face as a direct result from Surgery....Beware!

Dr. Taban performed surgery on my eyelid in March 2020 and I was very pleased with both the results and the experience overall. The appearance of the eyelid has improved greatly, but I am especially impressed by how much better my eye feels. Dr. Taban provided clear explanations throughout the process, and was very accessible when I had questions after the procedure.

Long story short, Dr. Taban is simply the best! I had my initial surgery to correct ptosis. It didn’t work and the results were not pretty. However, I consider myself extremely fortunate because I found Dr. Taban. After seeing his wonderful work, I decided to do a FaceTime consult. After that, I flew to California for the surgery. For my left eyelid, he performed a ptosis revision surgery using the internal approach. He also excised an extra skin fold. For the right eyelid, he used the external approach to lift the inner half of the eyelid. A few months later, I went back to get filler in the left eyelid to make things looks more symmetrical. I am extremely happy with my results! Aside from how skilled Dr. Taban is, I just wanted to mention how kind and caring he and his whole staff are! I felt comfortable and not worried at all because I knew that I was in good hands. I cannot recommend Dr. Taban enough if you are considering any type of oculoplastic surgery.

Experience: Dr. Taban and staff is the best of the best! They don’t cut corners at this facility. Everyone is super thorough, kind, and detailed. There is such a warm and welcoming energy with this staff that helped put me at ease before undergoing this surgery. Even the anesthesiologist and nurse went above and beyond to make sure I felt great. It doesn’t get more elite than this. Worth every penny I spent and this surgery completely changed my life and made me so much more confident. I am forever grateful for Dr. Taban and his staff. Procedure: I got Orbital Decompression, Almond eye, Under eye implant, and upper eyelid filler. At a young age I developed bulging eyes and I became very self conscious with the way it altered my face. Not only did he give me the look I wanted, he exceeded my expectations!

I needed reconstructive work for basal cell carcinoma surgery on my lower eyelid .This was potentially a disfiguring surgery, but I knew Dr. Taban was extremely skilled so entrusted him for the repair . The results were excellent .No one can even tell I had surgery. I would highly recommend Dr. Taban. He and his staff are professional and happy to answer all questions.

I had MAJOR CONCERN with the development of looking tired all the time, even with a good nights rest. I decided to research who I thought would be the best Blephroplasty Sx for me online. I narrowed it down to Dr. Taban because of the positive reviews. 5 weeks ago I underwent my Blephroplasty Procedure. I must say, I am overjoyed with the results of not having to be concerned with the tired look I used to have! Even my adult children said, "Mom! I see what the doctor did, he did a good job!" I have to agree. Not only does Dr. Taban have great bedside manners, his work ethics is outstanding! He replies to any questions or concerns in a timely manner. He checked on me a few hours after my procedure was performed after I left his office just to make sure I was ok. I will recommend Dr Taban to anyone who have concerns with their eyes. As a biracial women, with a mix of African American decent, I recommend Dr. Taban. Clearly, he is skilled at what he does.

I have been struggling with a severe case of Blepharitis with styes and chalazia as complications. My case was so bad that I have sought out and have been referred to seven ophthalmologists in an attempt to get help. I had one chalazion near my tear duct for over eight months and no oculoplastic surgeon would remove it because of its location. Dr. Taban agreed that it would be complicated to remove, but he was confident that he could do it. His staff got me in the next day for the outpatient procedure and within 20 min. I was free from the large chalazion that had been present for almost a year. I have the utmost faith in Dr. Taban and am beyond grateful that I have found him!

Lower Blepharoplasty: Dr. Taban performed surgery on me 17 January 2019, in his Beverly Hills office. After doing my homework it was clear that Dr. Taban was the most qualified doctor. Both the surgery and recovery were easy and painless. Dr. Taban put me at ease with his kindness and expertise. When the time comes to do my upper lids, Dr. Taban will be my surgeon of choice!
