“Thanks everyone in OC Cosmetic Surgery Clinique for your wonderful job especially Dr. Tavoussi who changed my life. Since I have had this tummy tuck surgery, I feel much better, have grown self confident and when look at myself in the mirror I truly see my beauty back. The Clinique, staff, and surgeon were all neat, comforting, and supportive at all times.”Samantha Rion
“Preparing for my first major surgery, I was a little nervous about getting a tummy tuck, to say the least. It always bothered me that, after giving birth 4 times to my terrific sons, I had excess loose flesh left over in my abdominal area. I have always been an exercise fiend and yet 200 daily crunches and frequent Boot Camp sessions could not rid me of that extra skin. I decided to take care of it in the only way my OB-GYN told me would work. A tummy tuck! A dear friend of mine had told me that she had had a tummy tuck done by an incredible doctor named Dr. Tavoussi. I made a decision to meet with him for a consultation, though I was not completely convinced about having a tummy tuck. I also had a hernia that needed repairing so I met with him to discuss that first and foremost.
I am not the kind of person to ‘beat around the bush’ about any issue and I sincerely appreciated Dr. Tavoussi’s honesty and details. He was very straight-forward about what was involved in having a hernia repair. I asked about the tummy tuck and he was very open about what will happen on the morning of the surgery, what I can expect to experience immediately after as well as a few days after. I agreed to having both procedures done simultaneously. On the morning of the surgery, he greeted me in the hospital and immediately asked how I was doing and if I had any questions. I recall that I was nervous and asked for a delicate butterfly needle for the anesthetic. He and the anesthesiologist, both put me at ease as to what pain I might experience.
At every step of the process, Dr. Tavoussi was considerate of my fears and even got me laughing. His bedside manner is just one of his special qualities. After the surgery, he told me, again, what to expect since he knew I expected myself to be up and exercising in no time. He said I would feel uncomfortable walking as I did before just initially since I probably would not be standing upright for a few days. He was right. I was afraid that I would never standup straight again. He smiled and said that I had nothing to worry about. He said it would be uncomfortable for a while as my body adjusts and heals itself, but that I will be standing upright, going to work and back in the gym as usual. Again, he was right.
I put all my trust in him. I must have called his office and spoke to him 5 or 6 times during that first week and a half just to hear his reassuring words that what I was feeling was normal. He recommended a special diet high in protein which I adhered to and found that it really maximized the results. At the 3-week post-surgery check-up I discovered that I was allowed to go back to the gym! I have since been to see him twice for follow-up check-ups and he is deeply pleased with how I am healing. I know what he sees is truly good work since all of my family and friends have commented on my ‘rock-hard abs.’ I am so pleased with the results and equally delighted that I chose Dr. Tavoussi to handle this surgery. I cannot imagine having any other professional do it. Thank you, Dr. Tavoussi!”Natalie
“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.”Rachel M
“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.”Boo Julian
“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.”Suzan T.
