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. My previously almond-shaped eyes looked sad and droopy. I consulted a number of surgeons specializing in the eye area. What impressed me about Dr. Taban was that he took the time to explain to me what he could do and what kind of results I could realistically expect. He discouraged me from spending more money than I needed to spend on procedures that he didn’t think I needed, or that posed unnecessary risk. He treated me like an intelligent human being — no condescension or slick salesmanship. I was also very impressed with the humanitarian work he does, and that he’s been able to correct serious deformities, requiring skill and compassion beyond my own (frankly) cosmetic needs.”

“My only regret is that I didn’t find Dr. Taban before I had the upper and lower bleph; I have no doubt that if Dr. Taban had done the original surgery, I’d have gotten the results I wanted without all the heartache and expense, and without worrying for five years that I looked freakish. 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. My advice to anyone considering plastic surgery of the eye area is to ONLY consider a surgeon who specializes in the eyes, and NOT someone who does “general” plastic surgery. I would personally and confidently recommend Dr. Taban to my closest friends, or to anyone. I felt cared-for from beginning to end. Even though I’d had a terrible previous experience, and was nervous about having surgery again.”

“I felt I was in the best possible hands, and I was. The surgery was painless — I was awake, and someone had a reassuring hand on my shoulder or upper arm at every moment — and the healing process was much more rapid and produced much less anxiety than my earlier surgery had.
