“My journey in finding a qualified Plastic Surgeon who was familiar with the complications  and emotional results of a post-op Bariatric patient was an arduous one. I found Dr. Tavoussi after an extensive search led me to one of his informative and FREE evening forums.

I was immediately impressed. He was not disinterested in my WLS issues (as so many before had been), but instead really listened to my worries and my dreams – dreams that could only be possible with the help of a skilled and knowledgeable plastic surgeon. I had a Arm Lift procedure three weeks ago (skin removed on my arms) – and already have plans to have a breast reduction/lift and tummy tuck in 30 more lbs or so. Meanwhile, this simple procedure has already made me feel better about myself, and Dr. Tavoussi’s humor, intelligence and obvious caring made all the difference.

I was not a “typical” plastic surgery candidate, and if anything, he and his awesome staff made me feel even more important than I could have expected. I cannot say enough about my WONDERFUL relationship with this great man. Thank you.”

“Eight and one half months ago I had a VSG and lost a significant amount of weight which left me with the usual baggy skin, etc. Smoking, age and continually remaining outside without sunscreen further contributed to the problem. When I looked in the mirror I saw my 88 year-old Mimi’s face looking back at me.

I chose Dr. Tavoussi and OC Cosmetic surgery Clinique to perform the surgery after reading reviews from this boards and interviewing another surgeon. Pre-operatively, Dr. Tavoussi devoted much time to answering my questions about procedures, explaining risks in detail and describing my post-op care. His down-to earth style and funny  one-liners created a fun and comfortable environment. In addition to Dr. Tavoussi’s sense of humor, he maintains a delightful and helpful staff.

As I have a mentally and physically challenged adult daughter, scheduling and obtaining care for her during this time posed some unusual constraints. The staff and Dr. Tavoussi graciously worked to arrange the surgery when it was most convenient for me. Dr. Tavoussi performed a face lift, neck lift, upper and lower eyelid surgery and brow lift. The results exceeded my expectations. I have been please and others have been complimentary of the results even though I am only four weeks post-op. The minimal pain I experienced was well controlled with medications and follow-up care has been as thorough as the pre-op care. Dr. Tavoussi is a true artist, dedicated to improving the looks and lives of his patients. Thank you.”

Dr. Tavoussi is a GOD send to anyone that has had bariatric surgery and now faces the difficult task of removing excess skin and correcting other defects associated with weight loss.Dr. Tavoussi worked with me to put together the best plan for me to get everything accomplished that I felt needed to be corrected on my new, smaller body.

I never felt rushed while with him and he never seemed distracted, like he had other things to do. His office staff is the best I have ever dealt with!!! Courteous, kind, and understanding. I recommend Dr. Tavoussi to anyone in the continental US that wants their surgery to be spectacular. I would be more than happy to answer questions regarding Dr. Tavoussi regarding my procedure from a patient point of view.”
