Ratings for Dr. Douglas Marlon Monasebian
After having 2 children I ended up with a hernia and diastasis recti. My diastasis recti was huge! It was more than 7 fingers wide. Whenever I would try to sit up from laying on back I had the biggest football shape emerge from my stomach! Well I went to see Dr. Monasebian because a friend of mine used him for a hernia and tummy tuck and had great results and recovery. He was very informative during our initial consultation and advised me that whenever I was ready he would perform the surgery. He walked me through what would take place and the results I could expect. I went for a consultation November 2016 and had the surgery in June. I waited awhile before deciding to move forward (I used my tax return money to help pay for the part of the procedure that wasn't covered). The day of the surgery his team of nurses and anesthesiologist couldn't have been more comforting and assuring. The first week after the surgery was pretty painful but his team called regularly to check in on me. I actually called him on a Sunday because I was running out of medication and he returned my call within 10 minutes. Dr. Monasebian has been very kind and thoughtful throughout this entire process. Results - When I went to see Dr. Monasebian my stomach was HUGE, people would regularly offer me seats on the train because I still looked pregnant.... NOW I look great! My stomach is flat and I feel wonderful! I can wear clothes without hiding and my confidence has returned. I highly recommend Dr. Monasebian. His office manager Heather will walk you through the payment process and dealing with your insurance company. If you pay for the consultation visit it is deducted from the overall cost.
Dr. Monasebian will bring any fears or nerves you may have on proceeding with plastic surgery to a halt. He is the most compassionate, skilled, and humble doctors I have ever encountered. I met my "Dr.", as I refer to him, from a family friend's recommendation, who himself, is also a plastic surgeon. He has decades of success stories under his belt, and it was easy to go with his recommendation of Dr. Monasebian. Over the past two years Dr. Monasebian has made my nose beautiful through rhinoplasty. He has also, most recently, gave me a part of what being a woman means, which I have never had....breasts. My BA was efficient, barely painful, and within one week I am moving about with ease. I am an attorney and am a busy woman. But writing this review was something I, on my own, wanted to do because whoever proceeds with PS and does not first consult with Dr. Monasebian will be doing themselves a disservice. To say I love Dr. M. is an understatement, he brought me to a place in my life where I am not only confident, but in love with myself. And THAT is priceless.
I went to Dr. Monasebian after hearing rave reviews about his level of skill and genuine care and concern for his patients. I had hooded eyelids that run in my family and made me self conscious as well as affecting my vision. I recently had upper eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty)and I am thrilled with the results. He literally could not have done a better job and the start to finish process has been seamless. This is 100% the best plastic surgeon in the country.
I went to see Dr. Monasebian because I had developed a problem with my c-section scar, ten years after the fact. I was not only unhappy with the way it looked, but built up scar tissue had become painful wearing certain clothing, anything that fastened around the waist with a button, snap or zipper. It had really become a problem. Not only did Dr. Monasebian completely understand my concerns, he supported the fact that I should be happy with my appearance, and that alone was reason to correct the problem. He and his staff could not have been more informative, professional, comforting and caring. I was clear on the details of my procedure from beginning to end and have had outstanding follow-up care. I couldn’t be happier with my results. I would highly recommend Dr. Monasebian for any cosmetic, dermatologic or corrective treatment. He is great!
Slowly losing vision in the right eye. Also, I have been in chronic pain in my right eye, and I have been taping my eyes shut every single time I need to sleep, I am very stressed, and losing sleep due to the chronic pain, and the taping of the eyes. Also, taping when napping, and taping on the airplane, and being clever with sunglasses, when traveling is horrible. When I went back to Doctor Monasebian, after the surgery, for my first follow up and he removed the bandages, he immediately became nervous and jittery, and I said things don’t look and feel right. He was very rude, extra nervous, and I had not been to a 2nd, or 3rd follow up yet with him. So it wasn't like I had been complaining, obviously he was already jumping the gun, because he knew he had already done something wrong. I even had a witness in the room for this follow up, my spouse. For the first surgery I was under general anesthesia, sleeping. For the second surgery I chose local anesthesia, awake, because he was supposedly correcting something, and since things didn’t go right for the first surgery, being under this local anesthesia I could watch what he was doing. Because I was awake, I was able to see that Doctor Monasebian did something very strange, he mashed down on my eyeball several times, and I thought, Im not a doctor, but this doesn’t seem normal. After checking with another plastic surgeon, I was informed that mashing down on the eyeball is not normal, and it is not something one must practice under any circumstances. After this surgery things were still not corrected, so I sought for advice from other plastic surgeon’s. One plastic surgeon had to pointe out to me, that I must tape my eyes shut, because Doctor Monasebian did not inform me, that my eyes were not closing properly, after his botched surgery. Thanks to this surgeon, I now know why my eyes were in chronic pain, and bloodshot all the time, because the doctor took off too much skin. Other problems that arose from the bad surgery. After surgery my eye was swollen like a baseball, and Doctor Monasebian said it was normal. Other surgeon’s said the eye will never swell like that, and obviously Doctor Monasebian didn’t know what he was doing. Right eye always dripping, Doctor Monasebian said that’s normal, other surgeon said, is he crazy? My eyes are still red and blood shot all throughout the day. Whenever I lay down on my right side, there is a sharp pain in my right eye. Soars and scabs around the eyes from taping them shut everyday. Another plastic surgeon evaluating the surgery said to me, “is Doctor Monasebian a real plastic surgeon?”
Dr Monasebian and staff were amazing. I had a large fatty tumour removed from my back. It was done as an in ofiice procedure in the onsite operating room. The doctor assisted by two nurses performed the procedure under local anesthesia. It was virtually painless, and healed beautifully. Thank you Dr. M and staff!
