I was referred to Dr. Taban by another physician as he is known for complex orbital surgery … The surgery was performed successfully using hidden inside … healed very quickly. Immediately I noticed improvement of eyeball position back to normal. It has been over 2 years from the surgery and my surgery result has lasted.

Skin Cancer

After being diagnosed with a basal cell skin cancer on my eyelid, Dr Taban was referred via my dermatologist. The day of my reconstruction he presented me with multiple options and pros and cons … We didn’t know how skin was going to be removed from my eyelid until I had my cancer removed the day before his surgery to reconstruct it. He’s a great surgeon and you cannot even tell that I had half a dime-sized piece of skin cut off my eyelid…

Dr. Taban performed bilateral orbital decompression for my TED in August, 2016.

Dr Taban Is an extremely skilled & talented doctor. He corrected my ptosis in one eye perfectly.

Great experience before, during, and after my surgery! I was looking for a Doctor to perform Lower eyelid retraction surgery. I found Dr. Taban on Realself.com … I live in New Mexico, which was not a problem.

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.

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!

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 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.

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.

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.

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!…

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.

… 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.

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.

Lower blepharoplasty/Bags

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.

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.

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 ….

Dr Taban and his staff are wonderful. I had my upper and lower eyes done, June 2017. I was under local anesthesia. I was awake during surgery but didn’t feel any pain. The recovery was great. I had bruising and swelling for a few weeks but no pain. I was back to work in two weeks. I look refreshed and younger. I’m very glad I did the surgery. I would recommend Dr. Taban to my friends and family.

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. Definitely worth traveling from Seattle to LA to see him and his team.

Revision Eyelid Ptosis Surgery

RealSelf Reviews

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. … Dr. Taban performed ptosis surgery, which made my eyes look subtly more alert and natural, and also used some filler under my eyes. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results or with the care I got. …

I have a left eyelid ptosis , my left lid was super droopy and muscle is week, i did 2 unsuccessful surgeries with two different doctors to lift it, and nothing changed, i think after second one my eyelid curvve was actually worst. I found Dr. Taban myself, and decided to do the third surgery with him. … I am really happy with my results . I can see the difference from before and also now my lid is more lifted, and curve is better. He did a different method than others…

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!!!

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!
