05/05/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Torkian did a complicated rhino revision with excellent results, including improved airways and aesthetics(beautiful). I am a nurse and have seen the opposite too many times with other Drs. His office is professional and caring with personal concerns for your well being. They take the time to ensure your comfortable before and after all visits and that you receive the quality results your looking for.

18/09/12 3 3 2 3 After having a bad rhinoplasty in the past from another doctor I decided to correct it but now as a revision with Dr. Torkian. He seemed very nice and understanding. Turns out I had a deviated septum that was never corrected from the first surgery which I had no idea to begin with. Upon the 3D image we agreed that he would correct my septum, lower the tip, and reduce nostril size. He ended up adding some changes without informing me and without my consent such as widening my bridge, breaking the nasal bone causing a dent near the root of the nose when re-alined, adding cartilage above the nostril by bridge to give it character. I do give him credit for only what we agreed upon but now I have to suffer for the defects. I recommend anyone to inform themselves of any changes the minute before surgery. It seems every doctor never truly listens to the patients needs or whats appealing to the individual when its not their nose and they still get paid regardless of how much or little was done

04/10/11 5 5 5 5 I highly recommend Dr Torkian. What separates Dr Torkian from other doctors is the fact that he is an artist and a visionary.  Respond

03/06/11 5 5 5 5 I cannot say more about Dr. Torkian and his incredible staff! I had a revision rhinoplasty a year ago, and just had some minor lip injections. This man is so incredibly thoughtful and skilled when it comes to anything face. He takes the rather intimidating world of cosmetic surgery and makes it an experience that is pleasant and customized to your own wants and goals. He is realistic and honest and truly believes that the best looking you is by utilizing what you already have. He does not try and make you look like a cookie cutter patient. I appreciate the warmth and kindness in his office, Martha and Amanda who work the office as well as hold your hand for the not so fun parts, are wonderfully educated women who know exactly how to comfort and give you all the info you will need throughout your treatments! Do not look any further, Dr. Torkian has changed my life and I could not be more grateful that I found him!

07/05/11 5 5 5 5 I went to Dr. Torkian after being referred to him by a nurse in another Dr's office.I was in need of repair from a botched fat grafting procedure by a Dr. (We'll call Dr.E.) Dr. E gave me built-in jowls, made one side of my face larger than the other, and I had lumps under one eye, and a tube shaped lump circling underneath the other eye. I could find no doctor capable nor willing to help me. Dr.Torkian said he would see what he could do and the consult was free. He began repairs that visit. I hold Dr. Torkian and his staff in the highest regard. He showed patience and was conservative.He used very diluted steroid injections to dissolve the fat graft lumps and lesson the jowls. He then repaired the size difference from one side of my face to the other.There are no words for how much he did for me and my self esteem. Looking in the mirror no longer causes me sorrow and I will never let anyone else touch my face again other than Dr. Torkian. Great Dr.and very easy to talk to, he listens.  Respond

13/06/10 5 5 5 5 Dr. Torkian is just fabulous. Both an exceptional doctor with an eye for beautiful clean naturalism and an incredible bed side manner. I was impressed on every level. I have had 2 procedures done with him and both were excellent. He is very detail oriented and spent a great amount of time explaining all aspects of the surgeries, which I really appreciated. Office was organized and elegant and Martha is terrific as his assistant.Thank you, Dr. T!  Respond

01/04/10 5 5 5 5 Dr. Torkian has been doing my Botox since November 2009, but I inquired about a minor nose job and fat grafting under my eyes. So, I just had 2 simultaneous procedures done by Dr. Torkian. A removal of a box like bump on the bridge of my nose and fat grafting from my abdomen to the wells underneath my eyes and my cheek bones Anyway, I was very concerned with the potential pain involved as I elected not to go the operating room route and general anaesthetic. At my request, he did the procedure in office under local anaesthetic only (same nerve block used by the dentist). Dr. Torkian has great personality and skill. My concerns with pain were unwarranted. He had a way with the injections, jiggling the my lip (the first injection site) so that it was barely felt. I actually only paid for the under eyes and nose. Upon his election, he decided to do the cheeks as well, indicating that he wouldn’t feel right about it if he didn’t do it. No additional charge. And my results.Awesome

16/12/09 5 4 5 5 After two mediocre rhinoplastys from other surgeons, I was in dire need of a revision. After consulting with 2 other Beverly Hills facial cosmetic surgeons (both who claimed to be ENT specialists)I choose Torkian because he spent over an hour and a half thoroughly going over what could be accomplished. From the moment that I came into the office he could tell that I had a horribly deviated septum (something that these 2 other ENT "specialists" didn't even catch). It has been 2 weeks since the surgery and I love my new nose. Having done 3 rhinos I am now finally satisfied and breathing very well. While Dr. Torkian is not cheap, he is far more reasonable than any of the other surgeons in the LA area that specialize in rhino or revision rhino. I would highly reccommend getting a consult if you are considering a rhino or revision.  Respond

06/11/09 1 1 1 1 He destroyed my nose! After 7 months of waiting, I am starting to give up. My nose looks horrible and I can't breath well. I am already looking for another surgeon to redo my nose. :-(  See Responses

07/02/09 5 5 5 5 As a 37 year old woman, I have been noticing slight signs of aging. My goals may be different than most as I am not wanting to look younger, but I do however, wish to look my age and refreshed. I've been a patient of Dr. Torkian's for the past 3 years and have been continually delighted with the results of his care/work. Dr. Torkian has helped me maintain my appearance by using various injectibles for correction. I have been to several physicians in the past, all of which have been good, but nothing compared to the skill and results I get with Dr. Torkian. I highly recommend Dr. Torkian for any facial procedures you are considering!!!

20/01/09 5 5 5 5 I had the most wonderful experience going through rhinoplasty surgery with Dr. Torkian and his staff. It was my first time ever having surgery, so I wanted to make the right choice in choosing a physician. I consulted other physicians, and was extremely glad that I had my surgery with him. I felt very safe with Dr. Torkian. He was very nice, knowledgeable, honest, and caring. The results are beyond my expectations. They are very natural. I also didn't feel any disconfort, or pain. I sincerely want to thank him for making my experience a pleasant one! I highly recommned him to anyone who is considering a nose job! L.W.  Respond

15/05/08 4 5 5 5 I had consulted several doctors about having my nose done, all of who said they would need to make an external incision under my nose. This was a big concern for me because I did not want a scar on my face, even if it was going to be light and hidden under my nose. Dr. Torkian told me that he was almost certain he could do all incisions internally, and sure enough, he was able to. I also had many concerns before surgery and a couple after, but Dr. Torkian has done a great job of communicating with me to put my mind at ease. In this day and age, many doctors lack a good bedside manner. Dr. Torkian is very personable, and in all honesty, I have never meet another doctor that is more openly kind and caring for his patients. If I had to go back and do it all over again, I would still choose Dr. Torkian as my doctor.
