To say Dr. Vartivarian is a great surgeon would be an understatement he is an amazing surgeon and an amazing person. His staff went well beyond my expectations to take extra care of me. My body looks great and I am forever grateful for all of their care.
in Los Angeles |
Dr. Vartivarian performed a procedure on my wife (in April 2016). Our experience was fantastic. From the doctor to the office staff to the hospital, everything was fantastic!
in Moorpark, CA |
Dr. Vartivarian was very kind and caring. He explained everything that he would be doing during my breast enlargement surgery. He made them a little bigger than I expected, but they are very natural looking and I can barely see the scars.
in Valencia, CA |
I went to see Dr. Vartivarian for a second opinion. When I left his office, I was confident to go with him for my Breast Reduction surgery. His knowledge, demeanor and professionalism is exceptional. I had my surgery last month and my shoulders feel so much lighter. My back pain and neck pain is reduced a lot. I am still seeing the Dr. for after surgery care. He is a great Dr. and I do recommend him for your surgery needs.

It was the best. They are kind, nice and skillful. He is a really good doctor and he chooses his staff very carefully. They make you feel comfortable and confident that you are in good hands.
in Reseda, CA |
Fantastic doctor, caring, compassionate excellent surgeon. I had several surgeries related to Breast Cancer starting 2010, the last a few years ago. He basically rebuilt on whole left breast. I am forever thankful I found him.
in Castaic, CA |
Patient care and skilled surgeon does not even touch the surface for Dr. Vartivarian. This is the kindest and most helpful office I have ever come across... which is rare these days for any Dr.'s office, much less a Cosmetic Surgeon. I had a ruptured implant he replaced for me and I had absolutely no pain! Did not so much as take an Advil afterward! I love love Rachel and his surgical nurse Salena. Rachel made scheduling seem so easy (and it wasn't!) and Salena was so comforting and great taki
