Doctor Taban is truly an amazing Doctor I was literally in distress because of a previous procedure. I went to Doctor Taban and he corrected my eyes. I really wouldn’t be HAPPY if it wasn’t for him taking care of me. Thank you Dr Taban. You have made a big difference in the way my eyes look. I will be eternally Grateful.

Dr Taban combines ophthalmological and surgical skill with artistic interpretation. I have had eye procedures performed elsewhere from a general facial surgeon, which I am not entirely happy with. I very much regret not consulting with Dr Taban prior to that experience. I subsequently consulted with Dr Taban regarding a notable asymmetry of my upper eyelid areas. He advised procedures different to what I had envisioned were needed (blepharoplasty on one eye, and filler in the other) but the final outcome after the swelling resolved was excellent, and my upper eyes are now almost identical in appearance. Dr Taban works at a fast and deliberate pace, and this is something you may need to get used to if you're used to being gently pampered. However if the results are still consistently good then it's just saving all of us time. Will definitely be my doctor of choice for any future plastic surgery involving the eye region.

I had been following Dr. Taban on Instagram for several years admiring his upper and lower blepharoplasty work. I checked out other doctors but his education, experience and work is second to none. Since I live on the east coast and couldn’t find anyone better that I trusted, I decided to do an online consultation for a lower blepharoplasty. After meeting Dr. Taban over FaceTime I felt comfortable enough to book an appointment. His office staff is amazing. They answered many questions for me since I was flying across the country from DC to LA. They stayed in contact with me and provided hotel information, etc and made sure I had my meds in a timely fashion before I travelled. The actual surgery was nearly painless. On a scale of 1-10 the pain was a 2. His bedside/chairside manners were great. I’m less than 3 months post surgery and my eyes look fabulous. Dr. Taban is so good at what he does even my doctors on the east coast are impressed with his work.

I travelled from San Francisco to get an upper eye lid blepharoplasty with Dr. Taban. And it was worth it. He is a true artist. The procedure was performed under a local anestesia, everything took just about 20 minutes. The staff was very gentle and caring. Dr. also supported me remotely via email answering the questions arised during the first days of recovery. Everything healied just fine exactly how he told me. Today, after 4 month from a surgery date, I visited a dermatologist. She looked straight at my eyelids and didn't recognize that I've done a blepharoplasty! Even asked for the Doctor's name, she was really impressed. Highly recommended.

Flawless, natural results, pain free and quick recovery I am 49 years old, Eastern European background. I had an upper and lower blepharoplasty and a ptosis ( drooping eye) repair. This was my first eye surgery. I would like to share some highlights of my amazing experience with Dr. Taban and his office team. Dr. Taban is so thorough, approachable and down- to-earth. He personally goes over everything, took out my suture, answered all of my emails. I came from out of town and felt very supported by his office. My recovery was completely pain free and very quick. My eyes look natural, young and fully functioning. Dr. Taban is a world class specialist and all the extra expense and travel are well worth the flawless results. I have gotten so many compliments. LOVE my eyes.

I am very inspired by Dr. Taban and by his ability to help others feel more like themselves (and more beautiful). I had a major procedure done that I thought about doing for many years, called Orbital Decompression. An autoimmune disorder had caused my eyes to bulge over time. I felt this surgery could alleviate that. When I did my research for this (reading many scientific journal articles), I found Dr. Taban and his work in Orbital Decompression. I feel I was prepared for this surgery because this was something I had wanted to do for so long. And because I was working for a maxillofacial surgeon at the time, I was well aware that with any surgery, the healing process takes time. I feel I am fully recovered 2 months later from my Orbital Decompression surgery, and I am incredibly grateful to Dr. Taban. I can now close my eyes without too much effort from the muscles surrounding my eyes. And aesthetically, my eyes are back to normal and not bulging anymore. I look forward to an upper b

I was left with scarring & under an eye, it’s dark. And I thought I wouldn’t need anymore make up plus the $$$ I spent for these errors. He wouldn’t correct any of it & wanted to send me to another Dr. I would give a history, but I know for sure: the Dr won’t take responsibility & he’ll say he’s sorry. (or maybe it’s the girl in the office who answers these letters) One thing for sure, don’t do the surgery in his office. He’ll tell you you’ll save $$. No, it’s that he can take patient after patient after patient with minimal down time for himself. I did pay for his surgical room. My insurance would have covered the Surgical Center, but not the surgeon.

Terrible, terrible service. I look so bad after his treatment, my face is uneven and I feel terrible. Horrible bed manners. He is only interested in your money, nothing else. He had the nerve of asking for more money to fix the disaster that he caused! He did such a bad job, I had to go to someone else to fix it and they couldn't believe how did this doctor do something so badly. Stay away from him! You will regret it!

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.

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 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.
