Dr. Taban is *the* best oculoplastic surgeon you could entrust your eyes to. I first spoke to Dr. Taban via Skype while I was in Europe for two months. I wanted to have a consultation about one ptotic eye and skin removal (blepharoplasty) on the other and from the moment I talked to him I felt like I was in the right hands. He is extremely knowledgable, a leading scholar/publisher in the field, and a very caring and patient doctor. I decided shortly thereafter to schedule surgery (left eye ptosis and bilateral upper blepharoplasty) with him for July and I couldn't be happier with that decision. He did an excellent job and my scars are really almost not visible, even in broad daylight due to his excellent technique. …

… I had ptosis and double eyelid surgery back in Septemeber of 2015. The results from the surgery is EXCELLENT, I could not be happier! Dr. Taban is incredible and a PHENOMENAL doctor. I literally tell everyone that I meet, who I feel will benefit from Dr. Taban's expertise to go see him. I found Dr. Taban through a review he wrote on www.realself.com, where he mentioned horners syndrome, a condition that I have. (drooping upper eyelid, caused by damage to sympathetic nerves) I have always been super self-conscious about my eye (11 years !! all through my teenage years) and wore heavy eye makeup to cover the differences in my eyes. It has been a huge blow to my self-esteem and confidence level. I was told by my neurologist and confirmed on many websites that horners syndrome was incurable, until I came upon Dr. Taban's review & website. After about 20 minutes of scrolling through his website and gallery ( which I must say gave me soooo much hope after seeing his gallery), I sent him an email to find out more about the surgery and whether my drooping upper eyelid can be fixed, and keep in mind this was past mid-night. Early next day I received an email personally from Dr. Taban answering all the questions I had, I proceeded to setup a consultation with his office. … I've never written a review in my life and I just to want to communicate to the fellow readers, after dealing with something that I never imagined could be corrected, my experience with Dr. Taban has been such a blessing. Only wish I found him sooner!!! Go for a consultation, put your trust in Dr. Taban he really is an incredible doctor and very much qualified in this field. Truly so grateful and happy with the experience and result!

REVISION EYELID PTOSIS SURGERY

I went to Dr. Taban after searching for a surgeon who could offer some hope for correcting the results of an upper/lower bleph I'd had five years before. ...

A picture says a thousand words. Dr. Taban is not only a brilliantly skilled, knowledgeable and gifted surgeon, he is genuinely kind and compassionate. … I underwent revision eyelid ptosis, blepharoplasty, brow lift, fat injections and filler injections. My procedure was done under a local anesthesia. … Dr. Taban went above and beyond to ensure this surgery was done properly and complete. I stayed at a hotel after the surgery. I was given antibiotics and pain killers. However, I did not need or use the pain killers, I had very little pain. My recover time was very quick. Dr. Taban called and texted me to check on me. Very comforting to know your surgeon is taking the time to check on you during your recovery!!! It has only been 5 months since my surgery and the results are astounding. I lived with my left eye closed and facial dropping for 4 1/2 years. I had a surgery on my eye about 2 years ago that was not successful. The results show what a skillful surgeon Dr. Taban truly is. I highly recommend him … Dr. Taban, A thank you does not even come close to letting you know how thankful I am!!! You not only restored my eye and my looks, but you restored my spirit for life. I can look in the mirror every morning with a smile!! Truly, thank you for caring!!!

Upper Blepharoplasty

RealSelf Reviews:

Very natural look after quad blepharoplasty. Approaching my 50s I have decided to finally take care of my eye bags that have been bothering me for years. I have naturally heavy eyelids but with age the issue has become more and more visible. I live in Toronto and I have been scouting local plastic surgeons but I was not convinced by any of them and I was surprised by the high quotes I have received for a quad blepharoplasty. One of my goals was obviously to find a surgeon with lot of expertise in eyes surgery. So I have expanded my search to include the US and I finally picked Dr Taban. I had a first consultation by Skype and I was confident that he would be the right choice for me. … his approach seemed conservative enough and was meeting my expectations in term of keeping a natural look, without going too extreme to avoid hollow eyes or feminine look. I booked my surgery and flew to LA. The surgery was done with local anesthesia. … Surgery went well. The usual swelling and bruises but I was able to attend an important meeting exactly 9 days after the surgery without anyone noticing and with the help of a good concealer. Result is completely meeting my expectation. Natural, no visible scar, the shape of my eyes is intact, just a refreshed , bagless look. … I would definitely recommend Dr Taban to my friends and in fact I did. One of my close friend will get a quad done in a couple of months. Dr Taban is not extravert but responded to all my questions and has very good bedside manners. He is also following up very quickly to questions by email. If you are looking for an eye specialist, Dr Taban is the right surgeon.

I explained to Dr. Taban that I did not want to drastically change my appearance, but rather, I wanted to look refreshed ... I'm so glad I did this because the procedure (upper and lower blepharoplasty) was pretty much painless... So far, I love the fact that I don't see anymore bags and my upper lids are exactly how I wanted them to look! ... ...THANK YOU ....

I had a procedure to remove excess skin on my upper eye lids and below my eyes, with fat repositioning to the hollow areas below my eyes (upper and lower Blepharoplasty). As I was an out-of-town client (from Seattle), Dr Taban and his office, Tasha and Zaira, communicated via email with very friendly and timely responses and detailed information. I also had a skype consultation with Dr Taban prior to the procedure. Dr Taban and Tasha made me feel very comfortable and made the in-office procedure a hassle free experience. ....I also had my very first filler and botox injections that same day - not pain free, but I felt very comfortable with Dr Taban's professional advice and abilities. The results are beyond amazing!!! I am very, very happy with everything that I had done. I am glad I chose Dr Taban to work on such a delicate and important part of me.

My procedure was Lower Eyelid with Fat Re-positioning and Eye Bags removal. I found Dr. Taban on Real Self, and upon meeting him in person I realized that he was knowledgeable enough to know how to operate on my eyes. From the initial consultation, he made me feel very at ease, as he began to explain to me all my different options. He was not pushy or have an overly confident "know it all" attitude like most Beverly Hills doctors seemed to have, or even in Miami. I chose to have the actual surgery, not injections, the procedure done under local sedation with injections directly in the lower eyelid, under my eyelashes. Of course, he provided me with some painkillers prior to the injections, so I barely felt anything. The whole time I was awake, eyes open, super calm, and didnt feel a thing. He has GREAT hands!! The whole thing lasted about an hour and as soon as I was done my friend drove me home … Overall, I couldnt be happier with my results, and I do want to point out that Dr. Taban's staff is very pleasant and helpful. I love them ! My eyes look natural and did not change the shape. The under eye bags are gone and I only wish I had done this procedure much sooner.

If there’s more than 5 star rating ,ill gonna rate Dr. Taban for the job well done for me. He brought back my confidence that was gone from the last 3 years. I was diagnosed with Graves Disease and affected my left eye. . My left eye was always dry, gritty, burning pain, and the worst, it was bulging leaving unsightly appearance (my eyes were not even, my right eye was not affected). I always cover my left eye with my hair coz i didn’t’ wanna see people staring on my eye.. More frustrating was when my Endocrinologist told me there’s no way it can be restored . Fast forward. , i started googling last month for oculoplastic surgeons, i followed my intuition plus all the positive reviews, i chose Dr . Taban . … i was amazed with the result . From first day post op , All the discomfort on my left eye i suffered from the last 3 year disappear ( gritty . redness, burning pain)And most of all if i am looking at the mirror ., i couldn’t believe my left eye was back to normal , i couldn’t even trace that bulgy looking eye i have for 3 years. Again there’s always hope, just consult with Dr. Taban , its worth it , If you have a case like me, I highly recommended Dr. Taban... Doc, thanks for your expertise, and to your staff, tasha and zaira thanks for your good customer service.

I used to have bulgy eyes before I did both orbital decompression and lower eyelid retraction with Dr. Taban, the results were so good and above my expectations actually. Healing time were almost for 9 days. felt a little bet pain right after the surgery when I was going back to the hotel with a nurse, and that’s it !! After that i was healing peacefully for 8 days. The swilling was dramatically reduced in the 3rd day then a small portion stayed there for a week. You can start walking alone on the 1st day after procedure. Its really worth it!!.

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. Both lower eyelids are raised and the scars from the skin grafts are pretty much invisible. The color match of the skin grafts from my upper eyelids are great so they blend into the lower eyelids very well. I am glad that I picked Dr. Taban as my surgeon.

Young Patient, Very Pleased with Tear Through Implants and Lower Eyelid Retraction Surgery. Ever since I was a kid I have had these deep dark hollows under my eyes, droopy lower eyelids, and big fat cheeks that swallowed my eyes the second I smiled. I was very insecure about my looks because of this. After a year of consulting with the "best" (arrogant and over confident in their abilities) oculplastic surgeons Los Angles had to offer, I eventually got fed up and even more insecure. I'd heard wonders about these very renowned surgeons... I would wait 2 months for a consultation that would set me back around $200 each time, only to look through their in-office before and after books and be horrified by patients with overstuffed cheeks, zero contours between orbital rim and mid-face, and over corrected eyes. These same doctors would try to up sell me on every procedure they offer, or just dismiss me offering me nothing more than fillers. Luckily, I stumbled upon Doctor Taban’s office, which was a breathe of fresh air. From the moment I walked into Dr. Taban's office, I was warmly welcomed by his lovely receptionist Zira who always made my family and I completely comfortable. Dr. Taban himself could tell exactly what I need from the second he examined me. We soon decided on tear-through implants for the hollowed under eyes, lower eyelid retraction surgery for excess white show, and a soof lift to correct the shelf like contour when I smiled and to also cover any implant contours… Day of surgery I had zero anxiety. Dr. Taban at this point was like family. He made me feel so comfortable, … The surgery went exactly as planned, as well as the recovery. There were only a couple minor hiccups. I strained my eyes too much the day after surgery causing a stitch to come loose. I was worried late at night and texted dr. Taban, he immediately facetimed me from home and asked me to come in the next day (his day off.) He opened the medical plaza just for me and patiently took care of me. Throughout the whole experience I surprisingly had little pain and was off painkillers in a matter of days. … I had put off surgery for months waiting for a free block in my schedule because I was worried about having an over corrected look. I looked okay by a week post-op, … I was pleased with my results and felt amazingly confident by my 2 week post-op appointment. … I am so pleased with my results! I showed him pictures of the eyes I had in mind and he was absolutely confident in his ability and he certainly delivered!…

REVISION EYELID SURGERY

RealSelf Reviews:

I wanted to thank Dr. Taban from the bottom of my heart for fixing an upper eyelid surgery gone terribly wrong, performed by another surgeon. Here is my story: I had my original upper blepharoplasty performed in March 2015 with devastating results. Not only were my eyelids completely asymmetric after the surgery, but I had severe pain in the inner corners of my eyes …. The scars were very think and inflamed and created a band like pull towards the inner part of the eye, directionally towards the nose. I was told that I just have bad healing, and hypertrophic scarring by the original surgeon. As you can imagine I was devastated. I am very conservative, and have thought about this surgery for years. For me it worsened the aesthetic look of my eyelids, … it totally distorted how I looked in general with these bands in my eyes. I felt very insecure, and didn’t want to be out in public anymore. It’s hard to hide your eyes on a constant basis.… What happened to me is called canthal webbing, which requires epicanthoplasty. I’m eternally grateful that I found Dr. Taban who is a very skilled surgeon, especially with revision surgeries. From the moment I visited him I felt in good hands. …He is extremely knowledgeable about difficult cases, and makes one feel at ease. .... In April 2016 I had my revision surgery with Dr. Taban. The surgery and recovery were much better than the first time. I am more than pleased with the outcome. I truly thought that I could never look the same like I did before I had the first surgery. And now I do! I recognize myself in the mirror again and I don’t have to hide my eyes. Dr. Taban gave me back my self-confidence. I will be forever grateful. Don’t hesitate to have Dr. Taban be your surgeon. He is a true artist!

I had eyelid surgery with Dr. Ray Taban ...Droopy eyelid surgery (ptosis); Eyelid retraction; Canthoplasty; Revisional eyelid surgery; Fat Injection for sunken hollow eyes. I had previous eyelid surgery that was done incorrectly. Dr. Taban had to work on all four of my eyelids (upper and lower on both eyes) and do something with each in order to bring the eyes back to their original shape. He did an excellent job. They are both almond shaped again, ...I am very very happy with the result. Dr. Taban is very kind and is a master at his craft.

Excellent consultation and results. I came to Dr. Taban to reverse results of a bad blepharoplasty performed by a well-known and highly respected S CA cosmetic surgeon. Rather than the minor adjustment that I wanted, the surgery left me with sunken upper eyelids that caused me to look older rather than younger, and rendered a somewhat angry look at rest. It was a disaster. I believe that the underlying problem was a surgeon performing procedures without the requisite special skills and knowledge of oculoplastics and aesthetic procedures. In contrast, Dr. Taban is indeed such a specialist. In addition, he is a person with excellent communication skills and compassionate sensibilities. He carefully examined me and described the multiple options, their pros and cons. He recommended filler injections with a specific material, applied in two steps, which I accepted. The procedure was completed in about 15 minutes with no numbing and without any significant discomfort at all. I am delighted with the results of the first procedure and scheduled my second pass the day after. I am extremely happy to have found Dr. Taban and confident that he will provide the best practical end result. I give Dr. Taban my highest recommendation.

Extremely knowledgeable and incredibly skilled! Dr. Taban is a truly amazing oculoplastic surgeon, he quickly diagnosed me with a sunken eye (enophthalmos) 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 wonderful experience and am so thankful for the amazing results!!!

My one year old son fell on a hook last week and tore his eyelid open. I immediately took him to his pediatrician who told us that our son will need stitches by a specialist. He referred us to Dr. Taban. … I was a wreck and called Dr. Taban's office right away, and his assistant immediately squeezed us in. When we arrived, he promptly saw us and with a calm demeanor, he kept us at ease. He agreed with our pediatrician that our son needed stitches, and since he's so young we would need to do it at a hospital/surgery center as he needs to be put under anesthesia. As a first time mom, I was very afraid. He kept me calm and assured me that everything will be fine. … The surgery went perfectly as he told us it would, and he followed through after the surgery with check-ups. Since then, my son's eye has healed quickly. There is no scar and the minimal bruising that he had faded after 4 days(which is normal). I am really happy that we chose Dr. Taban. He was kind, gentle, smart, and very professional. I highly recommend him!

Dr Taban was a “Ray” of Hope! My family and I were hit by a wrong side driver while on a family vacation out of country. I had an emergency Orbital Reconstruction and when I returned to the States, continued to see doctors for double vision. Not much improvement for months and I was getting desperate, resigned to a life of double vision, losing hope. My brother heard of Dr. Taban and he sent me his information. I was out of state, so we set up a Skype consultation to get a second opinion... Dr. Taban was thorough, he took the time to look at me, listen to me and explain my condition. He knew exactly how to fix it! After speaking with him, there was no doubt in my mind that Dr. Taban was the doctor who could help me. …. Dr. Taban genuinely cared about me and about helping me get better. Dr. Taban was a God send when I was losing all hope. Thank you Dr. Taban!

EYEBROW LIFT

RealSelf Reviews:

My experience with Dr. Taban and his staff was remarkable. I flew across country for my surgery and they helped with every detail. I had upper and lower blephoroplasty as well as bilateral brow lift and my eyes look amazing!! Dr. Taban was up front about what would or wouldn't look natural and I couldn't ask for better results and follow up. He called personally to check on me post surgery.

A picture says a thousand words. Dr. Taban is not only a brilliantly skilled, knowledgeable and gifted surgeon, he is genuinely kind and compassionate. … I underwent revision eyelid ptosis, blepharoplasty, brow lift, fat injections and filler injections. My procedure was done under a local anesthesia. … Dr. Taban went above and beyond to ensure this surgery was done properly and complete. I stayed at a hotel after the surgery. I was given antibiotics and pain killers. However, I did not need or use the pain killers, I had very little pain. My recover time was very quick. Dr. Taban called and texted me to check on me. Very comforting to know your surgeon is taking the time to check on you during your recovery!!! It has only been 5 months since my surgery and the results are astounding. I lived with my left eye closed and facial dropping for 4 1/2 years. I had a surgery on my eye about 2 years ago that was not successful. The results show what a skillful surgeon Dr. Taban truly is. I highly recommend him … Dr. Taban, A thank you does not even come close to letting you know how thankful I am!!! You not only restored my eye and my looks, but you restored my spirit for life. I can look in the mirror every morning with a smile!! Truly, thank you for caring!!!

He corrected my one sagging brow, did fat injections, and did upper and lower eye lids. I am thrilled with the result!

First let me say that my eyes look 20 years younger and completely natural (after upper/lower blepharoplasty and bilateral brow lift). Dr. Taban did an amazing job.

I am very happy with my experience and the results.

FAT INJECTION

Yelp Reviews:

I had eyelid surgery with Dr. Ray Taban ...Droopy eyelid surgery (ptosis); Eyelid retraction; Canthoplasty; Revisional eyelid surgery; Fat Injection for sunken hollow eyes. I had previous eyelid surgery that was done incorrectly. Dr. Taban had to work on all four of my eyelids to bring the eyes back to their original shape. He did an excellent job. He suggested the fat grafting under the eyebrow and around the outer part of the eyes where there was a hollow. This has made my eyes look very youthful, and I am very very happy with the result... Dr Taban is very kind and is a master at his craft. ...

EYELID FILLER INJECTION (Upper and Lower)

RealSelf Reviews:

Excellent consultation and results. I came to Dr. Taban to reverse results of a bad blepharoplasty performed by a well-known and highly respected S CA cosmetic surgeon. Rather than the minor adjustment that I wanted, the surgery left me with sunken upper eyelids that caused me to look older rather than younger, and rendered a somewhat angry look at rest. It was a disaster. I believe that the underlying problem was a surgeon performing procedures without the requisite special skills and knowledge of oculoplastics and aesthetic procedures. In contrast, Dr. Taban is indeed such a specialist. In addition, he is a person with excellent communication skills and compassionate sensibilities. He carefully examined me and described the multiple options, their pros and cons. He recommended filler injections with a specific material, applied in two steps, which I accepted. The procedure was completed in about 15 minutes with no numbing and without any significant discomfort at all. I am delighted with the results of the first procedure and scheduled my second pass the day after. I am extremely happy to have found Dr. Taban and confident that he will provide the best practical end result. I give Dr. Taban my highest recommendation.

I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Taban, he really is the best at what he does! I saw him for under eye fillers to correct the sunken/hollowness. I didn't want to go to a medspa for this because I wanted expert experience, this is my face we're talking about! He was so precise and meticulous with the placement of the filler (Restylane), which made me feel very comfortable and confident that the result would be great. I'm very fair skinned and bruise easily and not to mention the skin under my eyes is very thin, and no bruising! Very minimal swelling, I am beyond happy with my results! I will most certainly go to him again! Will refer friends and family because he really is wonderful!… Dr. Taban has great bedside manner, very calm and gentle through the procedure, never tried to upsell me anything else, unlike other Beverly Hills plastic surgeons. Thank you so much!

My experience with Dr. Taban was beyond what I expect with a doctor, let alone a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon. At 34, and being a very vain person (admittedly), I noticed some slight aging and hollowness around my eye area, and had looked into PRP & dermal fillers under the eye to restore lost volume. After postponing for MONTHS, and after multiple consults with other doctors, I decided on Dr. Taban for Belotero in the tear trough. Dr. Taban spoke to me several times via email and phone PRIOR to my first appointment, to ease my fears and answer all my questions -- no other doctor in the area would even get on the phone with me (or any patient) until they were paid a consult fee. I was stunned that this doctor emailed me back so quickly, even before I was a patient. The procedure itself was great and painless … and my under-eyes look AMAZING. It took maybe 30 minutes, tops. Restored volume under the eyes and I look 24 again ! It's amazing what a small tweak can do to the face to restore youthfulness - and a nurse, I do not advocate over-done plastic surgery. In fact, they KEY to any good cosmetic procedures is to look at someone, and never know they've had something done. My eyes have always been my thing, the defining feature on my face and the feature I get the most compliments on … so I am very picky about what I put on/near them, or what products I use on them. Definitely blown away, and definitely worth every dime!

I've been seeing Dr Taban twice a year for 2 years for Botox to deal with my deep squint lines (from a lifetime in the sun) which made me look like I was frowning and/or angry when I wasn't. Dr Taban expertly and successfully takes care of this for me. I'm extremely satisfied. I like his gentle, low-key manner. I especially appreciate that he listens to what I want and doesn't try to talk me into other procedures.

Very natural look after quad blepharoplasty. Approaching my 50s I have decided to finally take care of my eye bags that have been bothering me for years. I have naturally heavy eyelids but with age the issue has become more and more visible. I live in Toronto and I have been scouting local plastic surgeons but I was not convinced by any of them and I was surprised by the high quotes I have received for a quad blepharoplasty. One of my goals was obviously to find a surgeon with lot of expertise in eyes surgery. So I have expanded my search to include the US and I finally picked Dr Taban. I had a first consultation by Skype and I was confident that he would be the right choice for me. … his approach seemed conservative enough and was meeting my expectations in term of keeping a natural look, without going too extreme to avoid hollow eyes or feminine look. I booked my surgery and flew to LA. The surgery was done with local anesthesia. … Surgery went well. The usual swelling and bruises but I was able to attend an important meeting exactly 9 days after the surgery without anyone noticing and with the help of a good concealer. Result is completely meeting my expectation. Natural, no visible scar, the shape of my eyes is intact, just a refreshed , bagless look. … I would definitely recommend Dr Taban to my friends and in fact I did. One of my close friend will get a quad done in a couple of months. Dr Taban is not extrovert but responded to all my questions and has very good bedside manners. He is also following up very quickly to questions by email. If you are looking for an eye specialist, Dr Taban is the right surgeon.

I had a procedure to remove excess skin on my upper eye lids and below my eyes, with fat repositioning to the hollow areas below my eyes (upper and lower Bleparoplasty). As I was an out-of-town client (from Seattle), Dr Taban and his office, Tasha and Zaira, communicated via email with very friendly and timely responses and detailed information. I also had a skype consultation with Dr Taban prior to the procedure. Dr Taban and Tasha made me feel very comfortable and made the in-office procedure a hassle free experience. ....I also had my very first filler and botox injections that same day - not pain free, but I felt very comfortable with Dr Taban's professional advice and abilities. The results are beyond amazing!!! I am very, very happy with everything that I had done. I am glad I chose Dr Taban to work on such a delicate and important part of me. Definitely worth traveling from Seattle to LA to see him and his team.
