02/07/14 5 3 5 5 Dr Smaili is very knowledgeable and personable. I found him in internet when I was searching surgeon. I have not known nones that got surgery with him. But, I read all his reviews,, I made an appointment to meet him. I did Appointment at Brea's office, and the way that he explained to me all the procedures, I was convinced that he will be the right surgeon. From that moment on, he took the time to explain to me in detail what going be happen before, during and after surgery. He and his staff answer all my silly questions. It's been 3 months already of my breast augmentation and everything is great. He is an amazing Doctor and has great staff that make you feel great all the time.

04/06/14 5 5 5 5 Normally I only look here for a recommended doctor, but I really wanted to rate Dr. Smaili and his staff! I went in for a consult because I want a tummy tuck and breast augmentation. I was so nervous, but the staff was so nice and friendly, asking me if I wanted a water or if they could do anything for me while I filled out the paperwork. I waited in the waiting room maybe 5 minutes and Martha showed me to an exam room. I just finished dressing down as you will, and Dr. Smaili walked in. He had great bedside manner. I told him what I wanted to have done and he went through the whole entire procedures with me, what to expect, recovery time, all of it. I felt very confident in his abilities, I even asked if he could show me some of his work and he had no problem with that! After all that, I was led to an office where I spoke to Jenifer and we worked out rates and payments. I'm so excited to get this done now! I can't wait! Taking vacation time from work! Thanks C.S.I.! You guys rock!  Respond

24/05/14 4 3 1 2 I am 100% Dissatisfied with the quality of work done. Not only was I not listened to but now I am stuck with awful looking job. When confronted I was told massage, if I massage anymore they will hang to my feet not my knees. Both are completely different sizes and it doesn't even look like their was a lift. I guess you get what you paid for...Go somewhere else!  Respond

09/04/14 5 4 5 5 I rated mostly 5's which is best for this office! Except, punctuality is a 4 only because this office has a lot of patients which is a good thing though! First consult, I waited awhile but every other appointment was fast. There are also evening & weekend appointments so take advantage of that. Staff is very helpful & nice! What's cool is most of the staff has had cosmetic surgery so they can speak to you with experience. Dr. Smaili is very busy so he's quick with his consults. I saw him 3X before deciding to go through with surgery. Price is very affordable! I had liposuction of bra roll, lower back, flanks and inner thighs. Fat was transferred to buttocks (840 each side)... "Brazilian Butt Lift". After having surgery, I thought my butt was freaking huge. Of course, I was really swollen and not all the fat takes. However, after being 3 weeks post op my butt is very natural looking to my figure and my waist from liposuction looks awesome! Dr. Smaili did a pretty nice job!  Respond

22/12/13 5 5 5 5 Dr Smaili made me very comfortable and answered all my questions. I had my face,neck,and eyes done and the work was excellent. It has been almost 3 months since my surgery and my eyes are big and bright. I get compliments on my makeup and my clothes I am wearing and people don't even know I had the procedures done. My surgery was done to make my face look natural and not plastic. I love it and would recommend that anyone who has thought about the surgery have it done by Dr Smaili.

13/11/13 5 4 5 5 I recently had surgery with Dr. Smaili and I couldn't be happier. He is professional and he took the time to explain about the procedure. The staff is also great I was very worried and scared to have procedure done but Patty and Alex helped me feel at ease. When day of surgery came Dr. Smaili took the time to go over everything that was going to be done that day and the nurses were great as well. I would recommend him to my friends and family!!!  Respond

09/11/13 5 3 5 5 This was the first of 4 different offices I went to in search of my best option for a BA. I wasted my time with all the other ones because I ended coming back here in the end. My best friend got her boobs done about 3 months before I did with Dr. Smaili, and I was so happy to see how awesome they looked. All of the staff was always helpful and you even get a cell phone number you can text if you ever have any questions..ask for Patty, she helps you with everything.At my first consult, Dr. Smaili gave suggestions and went over what the surgery would be like. He never pushed or argued for something he didn't agree with. Dr. Smaili's offices also work with you when it comes to what and how you will pay. I can go on forever about Dr. Smaili, but to make it short, I LOVE MY NEW BOOBS! I love everything about this experience and I am really glad I had surgery done by Dr. Smaili, what he did to help me not only feel, but also look better, is amazing.  Respond

12/06/13 5 5 5 5 After all the big homework I did to find me a good plastic surgeon, I stopped at his clinic and decided to go for a tummy tuck. I was thinking if I get half the result he showed me on previous work he did I will be pleased. He promised a great work. The result was amazing, I am planning to go back for another procedure. It's been 3 years since he did the tummy tuck and I just had a new baby few months ago and my tummy looks even better. Seriously his work is a peace of ART.  Respond

15/05/13 5 5 5 5 I still can’t believe how my body turned out after the surgery. My tummy tuck scar, when I compare it to others, is by far the best. And I am not just saying it because it’s the one on my body, it really does look and healed great. Even the re position and size of my belly button is amazing, it’s just perfect! The liposuction I also had done the same day made my body get that curvy look I have always dreamed of. I feel like a new woman and never thought I could look like this. I really can’t think of any downsides to what I had done nor any regrets. On the contrary, I would encourage women out there who are debating whether on doing this or anything similar to go for it and do not look back. I will guarantee you will not regret it. Of course I can only speak for the California Surgical Institute, their staff, and especially Dr. Tarick Smaili. He truly is amazing and trust him completely with myself. I will continue to recommend him to anyone who asks me where I got my procedures done.

13/05/13 2 1 1 2 Had a recent consultation with Dr. Smalli - if you could call it that. He came in the room, quickly scanned my medical history form... Noted that I don't smoke or have allergies (my form did say I was a light smoker) - first red flag. He asked me to show him the area I wanted work done on. I asked if I could get away with lipo, he said no... must be skin removal surgery and then said nothing. So I said, "is that it?". He affirmed. I asked how many of procedures he's performed of the type I was asking for and he couldn't give me a straight answer. I asked for Before and After photos. He had NONE to show (red flag). I asked his 'finance' girl, too. Nada (red flag) Who's ever been a PS office where they didn't have photos?? It was a 5 minute consult at best. Didn't explain the procedure but did give tell that I could be back at work in 3 days (I've researched extensively and my 'procedure' is typically a 1-2 week home recovery.) Another red flag. He was very impersonal overall and evasive  See Responses

10/04/13 1 1 1 1 I had a lot of stretch marks and went for a tummy tuck and liposuction. He pulled so much of my skin that a week after the surgery I started to get stretch marks on my skin again it took me about 2 months to straighten out. The pain was HORRENDOUS. People compare tummy tuck to a c-section but it was about 100x worse. His liposuction was too much in some places which left a line and looks hollowed out and other places have changed so little that I could barely tell he did it. My stomach is flat under clothes but without clothes I look ****ed with wierd scars. He was a nightmare.DON'T GO TO HIM.

31/03/13 5 4 5 5 I love this doctor!! He worked wonders on me. I had 475 cc high profile saline implants and I love them. My recovery was fast and easy. I got areola reduction along with my implants and he did an amazing job! I put down 65 percent and financed the rest and my payments are only $100 a month. I will be going to him for any future procedures :-)

21/03/13 5 5 5 5 I have nothing but positive things to say about Dr. Smaili and his staff. The staff was great in getting me in for a free consultation as quick as possible. And the Dr. was great in explaining to me how my breast augmentation would go and the difference between saline and silicone. He even went on to showing me how the implant is placed and how the procedure would be done. Great experience. It was my first cosmetic sergury and I have to say I felt confident to go on and take the step in getting my work done. I greatly appreciate all of his staff and on how nice and informing they all are. They work as a team to make the patient feel comfortable. I would most definitely return to Dr. Smaili in the future, I'm very happy with his work.   Respond

20/03/13 5 5 5 5 I give Dr. Smaili an excelent rating. I Went in for a consultation, which was scheduled right away. The receptionist was very king and put me in as soon as there was an opening.The girls made me feel comfortable and gave me good phamplets to look at. When i was seen by Dr. Smaili he explained the difference between the silicone and saline. He gave me his advice in which one is best. I liked the way he explained to me how the implant is placed and even showed me a slide show which demostrated exactly how the implant is put into place. He also explained to me the implant will look natural. Great experience. And even though on the day of the surgery the girls were there telling me not to worry and keeping me postitive and not nervous.I would defeniatly go back and get more work done if i need it or want it in the future.  Respond

12/09/11 4 4 2 3 Consultations for breast augmentations are very SHORT!! I paid a down payment of $1,000 thinking i was going to meet with him once more to get a thorough consultation about what size I'd like to go and the procedure in general but thats not the case. You get a 5 minute consultation and the next appointment with him is your actual SURGERY!! I regret having made this decision and my surgery is coming up. This doctor seems knowledgable but does not make you feel at ease or provide you with enough information regarding surgery. I believe that surgeon's should personalize their calls to all their patients and this doctor does not get involved enough unfortunately as I have not spoken to him ONCE since my very SHORT consultation. I am only remaining hopeful that I am satisfied with my end results.

28/07/11 1 1 1 1 He ****ed me. He pulled my skin so much for a tummy tuck that I got new stretch marks after the surgery. I am uncomfortable in my own skin now. My skin is twisted and painful and stretched to the max. His liposuction was horrible. Don't bother with this doctor. And right before the surgery you have to sign a form that states that the pictures you see might be touched up. I can't even reverse any of the ****ing because I can't add new skin. Don't bother with this doctor.

The incision is supposed to be somewhat curved upwards, mine is cut downward on one end and straight accross on the other side.

07/05/07 1 1 3 i went to the office in brea a couple months ago, and i don't reccommend it. when i called, the receptionist was rude. when i went there, the receptionist was very rude and unprofessional. my free consultation w/ dr. smaili lasted no longer than 5 minutes. (RED FLAG) consultations should be thorough and @ least last 30 mins. in my opinion. i waited for him to ask me important questions, regarding my health and concerns, but he never asked. (RED FLAG) the only before and after pictures he showed me was the ones i had already saw on the internet. (RED FLAG)all i felt was that all he was interested in was putting the implants in my body and not caring about anything else. the only good thing is the price $4900 total cost. but i'm not the type to pick price over my comfort level w/ someone who's going to perform surgery on me. he'll also talk to you in silicone instead of saline. overall, him and his staff were rude and unprofessional. i would look elsewhere. thanks.  Respond
