Dr. Balikian is an artist with plastic surgery! His work is exceptional. Every procedure we have had has been perfect. After he is done, you look years younger without having to worry about the wind tunnel look! If you want to look better but not like you have had surgery, Dr. Balikian is your guy.

Don't look any further. If you need any facial procedure ask for him personally. He is so meticulous and knows what you need just by looking at you. He never over does anything or push more than what is actually needed.

We had a great experience with Dr Balikian! My son had ear surgery (otoplasty) and we couldn’t be happier with his results. The staff and the doctor were awesome with my son, and they really helped my husband and I understand the process. So happy with our choice!!

Amazing experience. I have been a patient of Dr. Balikian for several years. He is honest, caring and thorough. He honestly helped direct me with my aging issues (did not try to oversell). His staff are professional, kind and helpful. I highly recommend this office for your needs

Thank you Dr Balikian. I can see better. I can breathe better. And I look younger. Triple threat. Very skilled surgeon. As I aged my nose got bigger. I took in pics of my nose 30 years ago and he took it back to my younger nose. That alone took many years off my face. He did upper and lower lids. Plus fixed a muscle in my left eye that made my lid droop over my cornea snd was affecting my vision. And he did a lower face lift and jaw refine and neck. Everything except forehead that I did not need. Wanted it done now because later would have been riskier. Very happy with the result. Dr Balikian is not just an excellent plastic surgeon but also excellent surgeon in general. He fixed a deviated septum while doing my nose and I am breathing so much better and did not charge me. Just saw it needed doing and did it. Didn’t even tell me. But I noticed a drastic change in my breathing so asked him what he did and he told me. Fabulous doctor. Rare. He did a masterful job on me and really psinles

All I can say is WOW! If you had told me a year ago that I would have a lower facelift, necklift, rhinoplasty, upper and lower blepharoplasty and full face fat transfer- AND all at the same time- I would’ve said you were crazy!! But 6 weeks ago, that’s exactly what Dr. Balikian did for me. I am so thrilled with my results that I can hardly express how I feel! I have hated my neck for 15 years and as I’ve aged, have watched my face lose volume and looked so tired all the time. I didn't feel like myself any more, but I was afraid I would look like a fake “wind blown Barbie” woman! Until I found Dr. Balikian. His expertise, eye for details, and commitment to natural and refreshed results for his patients had me hooked from the first day I saw his work. He is a true artist and genuinely cares for his patients, their concerns and the final result of each procedure. I look 20 years younger and just like ME! Be confident to put your face, and trust, in the very best hands with Dr. Balikian!

I have nothing but gratitude and praise for Dr. Balikian and his staff. First off, the office is very clean, professional and inviting. From the moment you walk in, you are greeted with a friendly welcoming smile. I was pretty nervous going in for my rhinoplasty consultation. I've always hated my nose but tried to act confident about it. My walls had to come down to admit and share what I didn't like and hoped to change. Dr. Balikian was very approachable, down to earth, professional and warm. I really loved that they took photos of my face at various angles and used digital imaging to produce my anticipated outcome. Dr. Balikian doesn't give everyone the same "cookie cutter" nose. He is truly an artist and looks at what the best nose for your face is. The surgery went very smoothly as did the recovery. I am thrilled with my outcome and highly recommend him.

The most difficult thing about aging is what happens to one’s face, the lines, wrinkles and age spots. I’ve had three Triniti treatments and although I am nearly 70 years old, most people believe that I look closer to 50 years old due to the tightening and clarity of my skin. I am all for doing whatever I can to look younger without having a surgical procedure. Triniti has definitely helped my skin look brighter, clearer and healthy. My face looks younger and helps me feel better about myself.

Dr. Balikian and his staff are absolutely incredible! The office is pristine, all of the staff are professional and very friendly and Dr. Balikian is hands-down the most knowledgeable doctor you will ever meet. He is the best in the business and I would not waste your time going anywhere else but to him. I was terrified to try Botox and am so grateful that I trusted Dr. Balikian's expertise. I have had so many compliments since my first visit and would highly recommend his services. Joann & Loan

Couldn't ask for a better doctor and staff! Everyone is helpful and friendly. I’ve had two laser treatments to target age spots and had great results each time. Debra was pleasant, explained how the laser worked and what to expect, and made me feel very comfortable.

Dr Balikian is def the top plastic surgeon in in IE. After several consultations with other Facial Surgeons, and with a recommendation of a good friend, I made my final decision to schedule a consultation and schedule my surgery with Dr. Balikian. He explained the process to me in detail. He's very professional and friendly. I had many questions up to the day of my surgery, and he continued to put my mind at ease. Fast forward to today, I had my surgery and I couldn't be happier.
