We request that you send photographs of yourself as depicted below in order for Dr. Taban to evaluate your problems and goals.
WHO IS A SURGICAL CANDIDATE

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. The Skype consultation was a great experience and I knew right after that Dr. Taban was the best choice for my surgery. He made me feel very comfortable and answered any questions or concerns I had. Upon meeting him the day before surgery, … I was able to schedule my surgery on a Friday afternoon and then my post op the following Monday, which was very accommodating for my travel plans.
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
Dr Taban literally gave me my life back, today was the first day I’ve left my house without sunglasses and I haven’t felt this normal in a long time. I have been to a handful of surgeons, one in the UK, and two in the USA, they have only made my problem worse. …For anyone who’s going through something similar, I wish for you to never lose hope, and travel to LA if you must, because it’s definitely worth the journey.
Dr. Taban performed bilateral orbital decompression for my TED in August, 2016. It’s been more than 6 months since the surgery and my eyes have completely recovered and the scars from incisions were barely visible. I can say with confidence that he is THE best and the go-to doctor for this type of surgery. I was an out of town patient (thousands of miles away) … Dr. Taban is extremely talented, yet so humble … I can’t express my thankfulness enough to Dr. Taban and his staff … He is a gifted doctor …
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.

During recovery, I had several questions and he always responded in a timely matter … My results are a big difference from before and that is all thanks to a very skilled and knowledgeable surgeon, Dr. Taban. I would absolutely recommend his services to family, friends, or anyone looking for a great oculoplastic surgeon.
