“Dr. Raffi is the best surgeon in Southern California.”

I have since received surgery from Dr. Raffi that included a full facelift, neck lift, upper eyelids, lower eyelids, brow lift and a tummy tuck. What I love, love, love is that NO ONE KNOWS I HAVE HAD ANY SURGERY! He is so skilled and competent that I have to convince people that I really did have “work”. Dr. Raffi completed 7 surgeries on both my Father and I and we have not had one post operative complication.Dr. Raffi’s pre-operative care was only exceeded by his post-operative follow up. He answered all my questions with enormous patience and kindness, no matter how many concerns I had. If you are looking for a doctor who is skilled, compassionate, articulate and VERY gifted, look no further. Dr. Raffi is the best surgeon in Southern California.

Jean D. / Tustin, CA

“I am not only thrilled by the results, but I am grateful and humbled by the time and energy you spent on me.”

I wanted to take a few moments of your time and thank you for the wonderful ride you have given me over the last six months. You have given selflessly of your skills and your precious time to work your magic on me. For a patient like me, who has always been on the outside looking in, I found your work fascinating. I am not only thrilled by the results, but I am grateful and humbled by the time and energy you spent on me. You answered each and every one of my questions and phone calls with patience and kindness and God knows there were many of them! You are everything a doctor should be, the best, and you are at the top of the list!

“I highly recommend Dr. Hovsepian…”

From the minute I met Dr. Hovsepian, I knew I was not only in the presence of a knowledgeable perfectionist, but also of a kind, positive and honest individual. Dr. Hovsepian actually loves what he does and brings that enthusiasm with him to each job! I never thought I would consider botox or fillers, as most of the results I had seen looked fake and overdone. Dr. Hovsepian addressed not only those concerns, but also each and every tedious question I had with honesty and patience. He did not try to convince me of anything!His professionalism and knowledge are impeccable and truly amazing! No procedure is insignificant for either Dr. Hovsepian or his thoughful and thorough staff. The best part is, I look just like myself, only refreshed! I highly recommend Dr. Hovsepian, his work and his staff, and trust no one else with my face!

Gloria G. / Long Beach, CA

“… I am amazed at my results.”

In my 56 years of seeing many doctors, I have yet to meet a more caring, thorough, and compassionate doctor than Dr. Hovsepian. Not only did he take care of all my needs and concerns, but he did such an amazing job that till this day I am amazed at my result. I love it! I call him routinely for medical advice outside his realm, and he always takes the time to educate me on any matter or concerns I have. Dr. Raffi is a professional to the highest standards!

Fred T. / Fountain Valley, CA

“It is impossible to tell that I have ever had a problem.”

Although I have been blessed with good health most of my life, in early December I was diagnosed with cancer on my right ear. Dr. Hovsepian performed reconstructive surgery so superbly, that it is impossible to tell that I have ever had a problem.Although I had extensive holiday travel reservations, in addition to concerns about scheduling the operation so as to comply with current year deductible requirements, the doctor and his extremely efficient office staff were able to schedule my surgery within a week’s time, and I was able to travel to the east coast for the holidays as scheduled.In addition, since I am a “morning person”, for my convenience, Dr. Hovsepian scheduled my post-operative appointments as early as 6:00 AM, which truly is indicative not only to his whole-hearted efforts to assist his patient through a difficult time.

Mary Alice G. / Orange, CA

“They made me feel like I was their only patient.”

I absolutely love the care and attention that both Dr. Hovsepian and his staff provided. They made me feel like I was their only patient, which I wasn’t, but to feel that way in a doctor’s office is truly unique! Thank you both from my heart!

Monica I. / Santa Monica, CA

“After 58 years, I finally met a surgeon for me.”

I went to Dr. Hovsepian after seeing my best friend’s tummy-tuck result. She had an awesome tummy-tuck done by Dr. Hovsepian. It was perfect! I had a tummy tuck elsewhere many years ago. I was so envious of her result; it blew my result out of the ball park. After consulting many plastic surgeons for a facelift, I decided to schedule a consultation for a facelift with Dr. Hovsepian. I was blown away by his knowledge, talent, and patient recommendations. He was so detailed, kind and caring at my consultation that I said to myself; "Finally, I have met the surgeon for me." Dr. Hovsepian gave me such a natural looking facelift that my old friends had no idea that I had undergone surgery. The result is amazing! I love looking into the mirror everyday and seeing on the outside what I feel on the inside. I am so pleased. After 58 years, I finally met a surgeon for me. In my eyes, he is the best! I see his work on my face daily, and I love it! He changed my life! Thank you Dr. Hovsepian!

Amir B. / Los Angeles, CA

“I give my highest recommendation…”

Dr. Hovsepian is extremely caring, kind, sensitive and does beautiful surgery. He was very attentive to my needs and clearly is a perfectionist. He experiences so much joy and pride with the finished outcome. I give my highest recommendation and truly respect him as a physician.

Kim M. / Beverly Hills, CA

“I will never forget how he changed my life…”

I was fortunate to have Dr. Raffi Hovsepian as my plastic surgeon. Out of all the plastic surgeons I had seen; Dr. Hovsepian was the warmest, most caring, and had the best bedside manner. He went out of his way at all times to make sure I had all my questions answered, and educated me about my condition and the surgery. No other plastic surgeon had done that! He truly is a wonderful addition in my life. He is outstanding! My result proves his amazing talent and skills. I will never forget how he changed my life, I look at his work daily and it puts a smile on my face.



Nose

Lydia P. / Palm Springs, CA

“It was breath taking and I just wanted to cry tears of joy, my nose was more beautiful than I could have ever imagined.”

My journey started out when I was in high school, I was at the age when you start to notice things about yourself that you are not comfortable with, in my case it was my chin. I didn’t really have a chin and I had a lot of fat below my chin in the neck area. I started to notice this in photos and any kind of side profile view; I absolutely hated my chin and was embarrassed as well. My second insecurity began around the same time, my nose, it was a little big and the tip of my nose dropped lower than it should. Over the next ten years I dealt with my insecurities and wore make up to cover or give the illusion that I had a chin and as for my nose, that was a little hard to hide, because you really can’t hide it but you could wear things to bring the attention elsewhere. To make things worse, when I was twenty-two I had an accident where I had trauma to my face, which resulted in severe damage to my nose.Over the next year I did some research on getting my “situation” fixed. A girlfriend of mine had breast augmentation with Dr. Hovsepian and only had great things to say about him as a person and most of all as a surgeon. Her story was almost too good to be true, so I had to see for myself and I set up a consultation with Dr. Hovsepian. I was very nervous and scared, I was going to this doctor that I have never met and I had to express and tell him all my insecurities. From the moment I stepped into his office I was greeted with kindness and warmth from the staff. When I met Dr. Hovsepian, he made me feel comfortable and I didn’t feel like I was being judged. I felt like he truly cared for my concerns and me. I expressed to him my insecurities and he then went in detail about what he could do to fix my “situation.” We then took some pictures and started to make some adjustments on paper. Just seeing that little bit of difference on paper I got very excited, he gave me a copy to take home so that I could draw on them and make the adjustments I wanted.With my next appointment I brought the pictures of myself with the adjustments on them as well as photos of noses that I got out of a magazine or printed off the computer. Dr. Hovsepian gave me his advice as a plastic surgeon what would look best and what was unrealistic. I felt comfortable with what we had discussed about my nose, chin, and neck fat. I was confident he could give me an amazing result.On the day of surgery I was once again nervous, but very confident in Dr. Hovsepian and trusted his judgment and skill to the fullest. The moment I saw him, he made all my butterflies disappear and was very comforting. As I came out of surgery he was there to tell me everything went very well and I’m going to love the results.

The day I went to see Dr. Hovsepian to get the cast taken off my nose was the best of all. It was breath taking and I just wanted to cry tears of joy; my nose was more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. Moving on to taking the bandage off my chin and neck I could see a huge difference and how amazing the results were already.

It has now been over a year since my surgery and the results still amaze me. I would not change
anything. I have Dr. Hovsepian to thank for his amazing talent and for him being so caring; I now have my “situation” fixed. If I could give any advice, it would be go let your guard down and make a consultation appointment because you have nothing to lose except your insecurities.

Ivy A. / Aliso Viejo, CA

“He made the whole process more calming…”

Dr. Hovsepian did a great job with my surgery and with my follow up appointments. He made the whole process more calming since I was anxious and my nerves were all over the place. My nose looks great and it is EXACTLY how I wanted it to look. My whole life I was teased about the bump on my nose, but now I feel confident and happy about my nose and my appearance. Thank you so much!

Julie P. / Glendale, CA

“Thank you for taking care of me like a family member and thank you for being so honest and sincere.”

Dear Dr. Hovsepian, words cannot express enough how grateful I am for the care you have shown to me. Thank you for taking care of me like a family member and thank you for being so honest and sincere. Thank you for making the process of my surgery so easy and thank you for having such a great staff! You are a great person and a great doctor! You Are Awesome!! You’re among the nicest people I have ever known, and you’ll never be forgotten for the thoughtfulness you’ve shown. Thanks for everything!

Juliette P. / Los Angeles, CA

“I am very grateful he is my doctor and he performed my surgery. Some words are not enough to describe how I feel but the results speak for themselves.”

Dr. Hovsepian is a person with an amazing personality! He knows his job very well and is honest and straightforward about the jobs he takes on. He, along with his staff, made my surgery very easy. Since the first time I met him, I knew I could trust him and that he would do a great job on my nose. This was my first time having surgery and I was really anxious about finding the right doctor. Although I had many consultations with other doctors, I knew Dr. Hovsepian was the one. My case was a difficult one, since I had injured my nose in several places, but it seemed possible for him. He saw me multiple times before the surgery and along the way he and his staff kept in touch with me and were very punctual about answering questions and returning phone calls. My surgery went really well and even after, till this date he has been following up and answering all my questions. Sure there are family and friends that care about me, but the way he cared about me, as my doctor, is just something I appreciate very much. I am very grateful he is my doctor and he performed my surgery. Some words are not enough to describe how I feel but the results speak for themselves. It has been almost two months since my surgery and people around me don’t even notice it. But they do notice that I have a beautiful nose! It has been so easy on me to know I can rely on my doctor and his staff. It has made the whole process, including the recovery process, very easy and less stressful. Thank you Dr. Hovsepian. I really appreciate all you have done and grateful to have known you. And to the staff, thank you for being so kind, friendly and caring.

Michael P. D.G. / Huntington Beach, CA

“I believe he was a godsend.”

With regard to Dr. Hovsepian, I believe he was a godsend. First of all, he was the only one of four plastic surgeons who would accept my case. I found out about it in the nick of time, due to a call back from his efficient office staff.When I visited Dr. Hovsepian's office prior to surgery, the first thing that caught my eye other than a very neat orderly office was the prominently displayed certificates indicating the doctor's experience and expertise. His extensive curriculum vitae only added to the feeling that I would be in experienced hands.Since my broken, disfigured nose needed traumatic intervention and knowing that the hospital might not consider my case to be a priority, Dr. Hovsepian wisely scheduled my case at a nearby trauma center. Considering extensive damage done to my nose due to the fall, I was pleased with the surgical outcome.I believe you will find Dr. Hovsepian to be knowledgeable, efficient, empathetic, competent and a pleasure to deal with.

Jessica P. / Orange County, CA

“I would definitely go back to him…”

My experience with Dr. Raffi was amazing. This was my first surgery that I have ever had and I was very nervous about what would happen during and after the surgery. Dr. Raffi was very thorough and took his time going over everything about my surgery and the results that I wanted to see. Dr. Raffi was very personable and spent a lot of time going over pictures with me to make sure he would achieve the exact look that I wanted. He is very realistic and not pushy; he made me feel completely comfortable in knowing that I was making the right decision. I would definitely go back to him for any other surgeries/procedures that I would like to have done in the future.

Martha R. / Riverside, CA

“I was just amazed on how caring and kind he was…”

When I first meet Dr. Hovsepian I was just amazed on how caring and kind he was. He always took the time to explain my procedure in detail. After every consultation that I had with him I felt more confident that I was in great hands. He is just an amazing surgeon with incredible skills and knowledge, yet he is down to earth and very personable. Even after my surgery he continues to be caring and attentive whenever I have a question or concern. I would definitely recommend him to all my friends and family.

Bradley A. / Corona Del Mar, CA

“The results are nothing short of amazing!”

It is my pleasure to be able to provide an articulation of my experience as a patient of Dr. Raffi V. Hovsepian. I was initially referred to Dr. Hovsepian by my Dermatologist to have a skin lesion removed from my face. After my treatment, during a follow-up appointment, I decided to ask him about correcting defects in my nose, both from trauma from sports and genetic defect (deviated septum) that had bothered me all my adult life. I would likely have not done so but for having met Dr. Hovsepian for that initial treatment. He consulted with me on my condition and spent an enormous amount of time to study the underlying structural as well as cosmetic problems prior to recommending a course of treatment. Needless to say, my case was not an easy one. I went ahead with the procedure with complete confidence that I had selected the right surgeon. And I was right as the results are nothing short of amazing! I could not have imagined anything better. Best of all, the end result looks like nothing was ever done…only I and close friends and family members detect the corrections made. Dr. Hovsepian is an amazingly skilled surgeon and probably more importantly, a compassionate physician who takes the time to know his patients and their condition and make appropriate recommendations for treatment. His follow-up is second to none I have ever experienced in medical care. Dr. Hovsepian’s support staff is equally as high quality as he and his skills. I proudly offer my highest recommendation of Dr. Hovsepian… so much so that I have referred family members and friends to him.

Joan H. / Brentwood, CA

“He is one of those doctors who truly loves what he is doing…”

Dr. Hovsepian is an amazing surgeon. He is one of those doctors who truly loves what he is doing and it shows through his interaction with patients (my sister and I). He was very cordial during my consultation and spent a great deal of time explaining the procedure with the various different approaches and why he felt a specific one would be better for my case. During my follow up visits he answered all my questions and just made the whole experience feel very worthwhile. The result was nothing less than perfect...what I expected! Thank you Dr. Hovsepian!

Jean D. / Tustin Ranch, CA

“It’s very rare to find such a well rounded surgeon.”

Both my father and I have been a patient of Dr Hovsepian. He is an excellent surgeon with a wonderful character. He performs amazing surgeries. He first operated on my father. After seeing the outcome and excellent job he did. I had my surgery done, I am very happy with his result. So happy, that I have gone to him many times. I love my results!! It’s very rare to find such a well rounded surgeon. Once you meet him, you will know what I mean.



Eyes

Lynne B. / Newport Beach, CA

“I truly feel blessed to have him as my surgeon and thank God every morning I look at the results!”

This was my first cosmetic surgery. My husband and I met with 7 different doctors before unanimously choosing Dr. Hovsepian. Aside from immediately feeling at ease with him, his recommendations and medical expertise far exceeded those of other physicians, and his caring attitude was a huge differentiator. It felt like I had my own private, personal surgeon and friend throughout the whole process. Even the nurses in the surgical recovery hotel were gushing about how caring and nice he was! I truly feel blessed to have him as my surgeon and thank God every morning I look at the results! My eyes look 10+ years younger and less than a month after surgery you could not see any blemish at all! My tummy tuck results are amazing--really life changing! I would trust him--without question--with my life.

Bryon P. / Orange County, CA

“You have a tremendous amount of skill and an artful eye, but to me it is your deep compassion and commitment to your clients, to their results and their feelings along the way that truly take you from a “good doctor to a great doctor”.”

Dear Dr. Hovsepian. Thank you very much for your expert opinion, your knowledge and your skill at what you do, but most of all thank you for your compassion. As a man who does not often think of or consider plastic surgery, I will admit that I was nervous and concerned about the “look” I would have after it was all said and done. I think that most of us have seen someone who had been “over done” or did not achieve the desired look or outcome that they had hoped. Because plastic surgery is an art, this will probably always be the case. I feel very blessed that your artistic eye and skill have come together for me in such a way that I am extremely happy with the results. The eyelids (both uppers and lowers) you did for me have turned out to be perfectly natural looking and fit my face and eyes perfectly.Your compassion all throughout our contact together is what, in my mind, really sets you apart and puts you at the very top of my list. You have a tremendous amount of skill and an artful eye, but to me it is your deep compassion and commitment to your clients, to their results and their feelings along the way that truly take you from a “good doctor to a great doctor”. As a result, I am very thankful that I choose you to do my procedure.Thanks again for the compassion you and your office have shown me all along. Thanks for the great work, the natural look and while I hope that I don’t have anything else done, I will continue to highly recommend my friends and family to you so that they may enjoy the same great care and service that you have shown to me.

Jeanie W. D. / Orange County, CA

“Dr. Raffi is the best surgeon in Southern California.”

I would like to take a moment to recommend the services of Dr. Raffi Hovsepian. My father, who is 85, and I have both benefited enormously from the skills of Dr. Hovsepian. Dad met the good doctor when he needed follow up care and eye lid surgery at the VA hospital a few years back.I have since received surgery from Dr. Raffi that included a full facelift, neck lift, eyelids, lower eyes, brow lift and a tummy tuck. What I love, love, love is that No one knows I have had any surgery! He is so skilled and competent that I have to convince people that I really did have “work”. Dr. Raffi completed 7 surgeries on both my Father and I and we have not had one postoperative complication!Recently I was seen by my ophthalmologist who was very surprised when I told him I had upper and lower eyelid surgery. He commended me for finding such an accomplished surgeon.Dr. Raffi’s pre-operative care was only exceeded by his post-operative follow up. He answered all my questions with enormous patience and kindness, no matter how many concerns I had. If you are looking for a doctor who is skilled, compassionate, articulate and VERY gifted, look no further. Dr. Raffi is the best surgeon in Southern California.



Breast

Jessica H. / Los Angeles, CA

“I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a top-notch professional cosmetic surgeon!”

Although I was eager to have breast implant surgery, I definitely wanted to find a doctor with whom I would feel comfortable. When I met Dr. Hovsepian, I was immediately impressed by his knowledge of the latest techniques in his field, and by his warm and friendly personality. After I described what kind of results I wanted, he explained all of my options in a clear, straightforward language. I knew very quickly that he would be the perfect doctor for this procedure. He understood what results I wanted to achieve, which is paramount for surgery of this nature. Even the pictures he showed me of his previous patients looked great, all were very natural looking and well proportioned.When Dr. Hovsepian expressed to me that he wanted to have a couple more consultations because he likes to get to know his patients better before performing surgery, I was very impressed, however I was also perhaps a bit skeptical only because I had so few doctors before with that kind of attitude. He not only became more acquainted with me prior to surgery as he said he would, but I have had numerous follow-ups since then. I feel so privileged to have a doctor of his quality that cares so much about my well being. Going to visit him is such a pleasure that I always look forward to my follow-up visits. I feel very secure with him as my doctor and beyond that, he is an extremely nice and caring individual. I am very happy to have him as my doctor and to know him as a person. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a top-notch professional cosmetic surgeon!

Hanna E. / Huntington Beach, CA

“I believe Dr. Hovsepian is the best surgeon for breast augmentation!”

I had a breast augmentation in August 2011 with Dr. Raffi Hovsepian. He was so thorough and helped me pick the type and size of implant. He was very patient and caring throughout the entire process. Dr. Hovsepian made this experience less nerve racking for me. His staff was always there to answer all of my questions. They were very sweet and helpful. Dr. Hovsepian is very easy to talk to and a very experienced surgeon. I had consultations with multiple surgeons who wanted to add a breast lift and they were not as friendly and thorough. Dr. Hovsepian performed the procedure without a lift and without additional incisions; the end result was perfect and exactly what I wanted. I have referred multiple women to Dr. Hovsepian and I will continue to do so. I believe Dr. Hovsepian is the best surgeon for breast augmentation!

Jessica B. / San Diego, CA

“From our first meeting, I knew you were a first-class doctor who cares about his patients.”

Dear Dr. Hovsepian, thank you so much for being such a “Rock Star” of a surgeon! From our first meeting, I knew you were a first-class doctor who cares about his patients. You have gone above and beyond in helping me to achieve my goals. Words cannot say enough about how much I appreciate everything you have done for me through this entire process. The best!

D.M. / Colorado

“I just can’t thank you enough!”

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for all you have done for me. The time you spent with me made me feel so comfortable. You are a wonderful doctor and it means so much to me that you made me feel important and that you cared about my breast revision case.I appreciate you fitting me in while we where in California and working so hard to correct everything that had gone wrong for me.For so long I have been embarrassed about the way I look and can’t thank you enough for taking the time and energy to help me. I feel lucky to have found you not only as a doctor, but also as a friend.

Michelle W. / San Clemente, CA

“Thank you for your professionalism and the great care you took with me.”

Dear Dr. Hovsepian. I could never thank you enough. You changed me back into a 28 year old. Thank you for your professionalism and the great care you took with me. Thank you so much!

Melissa M. / Malibu, CA

“He was caring and compassionate…”

I am so glad that I was referred to such a great surgeon. I had a breast augmentation done 3 years ago by another surgeon who did an awful job. I had a diagnosis of what is known as breast symmastia after my breast augmentation. I was unhappy with my result for 3 years. It was bothering me daily and I was self conscious about my appearance. My friend had her breast augmentation done by Dr. Hovsepian; it was very natural and beautiful. So I decided to see and meet Dr. Hovsepian. Unlike my first surgeon; we had multiple consultations. I was never rushed to make a decision and he was extremely educational and kind. He was caring and compassionate about my situation. I decided to have him perform my breast revision surgery, very difficult. He took his time, and gave me an amazing result. My only regret is that I wish he was my original surgeon. He is The Best!

Renee D. / Las Vegas, NV

"I respect him as a person and as a physician…”

Dr. Hovsepian is a fantastic, skillful surgeon. He cares so much about his patients and wants the best for them. I respect him as a person and as a physician and have always had confidence in his advice. I had a breast augmentation and a tummy tuck, and every day I thank him when I see my reflection. I can't believe how beautiful it turned out. Yay!

Margot H. / Huntington Beach, CA

“I cannot say enough about Dr. Hovsepian’s skill...”

I first became acquainted with Dr. Hovsepian when my husband had a cyst removed from a very tricky place on the back of his neck. I was impressed when Dr. Hovsepian called that evening to find out how my husband was doing.A few months later my husband had another surgery by Dr. Hovsepian and again the doctor was always available when we had questions and called numerous times to check on his patient. The results of both of my husband’s surgeries were excellent.I had to have reconstructive surgery; I set up interviews with other plastic surgeons. However, I was so impressed with Dr. Hovsepian I decided to go with him. His office personnel were so helpful in getting my surgery scheduled and were readily available to answer all of my questions. Dr. Hovsepian explained the procedure ahead of time, spent time with me right before the surgery. I was relaxed and confident because of his caring and professionalism.After the surgery he kept in touch and was available when I had questions. Follow up appointments are always on time, Dr. Hovsepian listens to my questions, concerns and is always there with an answer. His staff continues to be professional, courteous and extremely helpful.

I cannot say enough about Dr. Hovsepian’s skill, professionalism and care. He is wonderful!

Deanarae V. / Redlands, CA

“I am 100% satisfied…”

Dr. Hovsepian is great in every way. I am 100% satisfied with his services and would recommend him to anyone!

Kourtney V. / Redlands, CA

“When I met him all the weight was lifted off my shoulders.”

Well let’s see, when I was 19 I got pregnant and gained 60 pounds, and on my tiny frame, it ruined my body, my breasts looked like the breasts of a 90 year old woman, I hated them!! I hid my body, wore jackets, sweats, big shirts, anything that could hide my insecurities. I had thought about breast augmentation for years but I had heard so many horror stories. So many things could go wrong, and how was I supposed to find a doctor that I trusted not only to let my guard down with but to put my life and body in his hands. So I am now 23 and had researched augmentation for 4 years. Talked to friends, family, surgeons and Google was my favorite website for a while there. I was referred to Dr. Raffi Hovsepian and said what the heck I might as well schedule, what will it hurt.

I scheduled a consult in February, and that was scarier then scheduling the actual surgery. I had so many thoughts going through my head. When I think plastic surgeon, a rude, I know it all, snobby, money hungry man comes to mind. So with this thought I am driving to his office and almost turn around in tears several times. How am I supposed to let my guard down with someone with this attitude? So I get to his office and from the beginning everything was great. His office had many of his achievements posted, his résumé was mind blowing, and he has an amazing friendly staff. When I met him all the weight was lifted off my shoulders. He was nice, smart, caring, and knew what he was talking about, but most of all he actually cared about me, what I wanted and how I felt. So 10 minutes into the consult, I was ready to schedule, talk about jumping the gun. He took a ton of pictures and listened to what I wanted. He explained to me the incision sites, and the implant styles, different sizes. There was so much to think about. His staff gave me a packet with tons of information, and a quote. I then decided to set up a second appointment.

At the second consult we went over everything again. Took more pictures and looked at before and after pictures. I had showed him what I want to look like and what I don’t like. He never once tried to push me towards a specific size, or incision site, or type of implant or rush a surgery date. I knew that I wanted to have him do my surgery, but I had to think about everything. There is a lot of thought to put into consideration before you commit to surgery. I set up my date for March 18, 2009. I had one more appointment. At the last appointment he wrote my prescription, and we went over everything again. I had to do some routine blood work, and I was ready!

So knowing that I had the date scheduled, it came so fast. I was freaking out, so many thoughts running through my head, and only a few days before surgery. Everyone is telling me their bad experiences. I had a friend that had her augmentation 2 weeks before me and said the pain was excruciating, she had to stay in bed for days. Another friend that went in for a “C” cup and came out with “DD’s”, a friend that had one higher than the other. These stories scared me. I could go on for days about all the stories I heard during the following days. So I called the office and talked to the staff and they reassured me about everything.

So the day of surgery comes and I am not nervous at all. Not even the slightest bit! I go in to the surgery center, and meet with Dr. Hovsepian. We confirm everything one last time. And here we go! He makes some marks on me with a sharpie. They give me an IV and a shot and I’m out, quick and easy. I wake up 2 and ½ hours later. I’m a bit groggy, and sleepy, but overall everything is fine. I go home and sleep for a few hours and then I’m up. I was taking pain pills. I had absolutely no pain or discomfort at all. Getting used to sleeping on my back was a challenge though. I was thinking to myself this is so much smoother then I had prepared myself for.

About a week later at my post-op appointment, Dr. Hovsepian removed the ace wraps. Seeing them for the first time was so awesome. He had done such an amazing job, and trust me he didn’t have much to work with. They were better then I imagined they could be! After surgery I had to wear a sports bra, and no lifting for quite some time. I had several post-op appointments to make sure the healing was going right, and to learn different massages to make sure they remain soft. In the end it’s all worth it. I think the whole process was amazing and life changing. I couldn’t be happier with my breasts; I would do it again in a heartbeat. In the end I went with 350 cc high profile, gel implants, infra-mammary incision.

If you research breast augmentation you will know that the healing process is dependent on many factors. The doctor, the technique he uses, the patient, the implant size and the incision site, etc. A good surgeon will know what your body can handle, and will not try to push that limit. In the end I love my results more than words could explain. I couldn’t be happier with my choice to have breast augmentation. And I am so lucky to have had such a great doctor. He is not only and extraordinary Surgeon but he is an all around amazing person.

“… I am amazed at my results.”

In my 56 years of seeing many doctors, I have yet to meet a more caring, thorough, and compassionate doctor than Dr. Hovsepian. Not only did he take care of all my needs and concerns, but he did such an amazing job that till this day I am amazed at my result. I love it! I call him routinely for medical advice outside his realm, and he always takes the time to educate me on any matter or concerns I have. Dr. Raffi is a professional to the highest standards!

Lynne B. / Newport Beach, CA

“I truly feel blessed to have him as my surgeon and thank God every morning I look at the results!”

This was my first cosmetic surgery. My husband and I met with 7 different doctors before unanimously choosing Dr. Hovsepian. Aside from immediately feeling at ease with him, his recommendations and medical expertise far exceeded those of other physicians, and his caring attitude was a huge differentiator. It felt like I had my own private, personal surgeon and friend throughout the whole process. Even the nurses in the surgical recovery hotel were gushing about how caring and nice he was! I truly feel blessed to have him as my surgeon and thank God every morning I look at the results! My eyes look 10+ years younger and less than a month after surgery you could not see any blemish at all! My tummy tuck results are amazing--really life changing! I would trust him--without question--with my life.

“Dr. Raffi is the best surgeon in Southern California.”

I would like to take a moment to recommend the services of Dr. Raffi Hovsepian. My father, who is 85, and I have both benefited enormously from the skills of Dr. Hovsepian. Dad met the good doctor when he needed follow up care and eye lid surgery at the VA hospital a few years back.I have since received surgery from Dr. Raffi that included a full facelift, neck lift, eyelids, lower eyes, brow lift and a tummy tuck. What I love, love, love is that No one knows I have had any surgery! He is so skilled and competent that I have to convince people that I really did have “work”. Dr. Raffi completed 7 surgeries on both my Father and I and we have not had one postoperative complication!Recently I was seen by my ophthalmologist who was very surprised when I told him I had upper and lower eyelid surgery. He commended me for finding such an accomplished surgeon.Dr. Raffi’s pre-operative care was only exceeded by his post-operative follow up. He answered all my questions with enormous patience and kindness, no matter how many concerns I had. If you are looking for a doctor who is skilled, compassionate, articulate and VERY gifted, look no further. Dr. Raffi is the best surgeon in Southern California.

"I respect him as a person and as a physician…”

Dr. Hovsepian is a fantastic, skillful surgeon. He cares so much about his patients and wants the best for them. I respect him as a person and as a physician and have always had confidence in his advice. I had a breast augmentation and a tummy tuck, and every day I thank him when I see my reflection. I can't believe how beautiful it turned out. Yay!

“Dr. Hovsepian is one of the most professional and knowledgeable surgeons I have ever met.”

I was struggling with extra fat on my belly, sides, back and thighs, and it didn't matter how much I exercised, it just wouldn't go away. I had tried to get rid of the fat for many years in the gym, without result. I was really frustrated and I didn't feel confident in what my body had become.When I came in contact with Dr. Hovsepian, both he and the rest of the staff were very informative and helpful about liposuction from beginning to end! They always got back to me right away when I had questions before and after the procedure. I had tons of questions and it never felt like I was bothering them with too many questions. The aesthetic patient coordinator is so sweet and helpful; she always went out of her way.Dr. Hovsepian is one of the most professional and knowledgeable surgeons I have ever met. I honestly felt 100% comfortable with him doing a liposuction procedure for me as soon as I met him for the first time.
What differs between Dr. Hovsepian and other Doctors is that he is VERY personable and pleasant (not that others aren’t), but with him everything is very natural and relaxed and you can talk about the procedure without feeling rushed or pressured. I felt so relaxed and confident with his ability to understand me, and wanting to make me happy. I noticed right away that he is very detailed and particular like me. I have dealt with plastic surgeons that weren’t as detailed as me, and it's been a few details that I haven't been pleased with. It was a relief when I could tell that Dr. Hovsepian is such a perfectionist. It felt good to just relax, knowing the results would come out perfect!When I woke up after the surgery, I couldn't believe how much of a result I already had gotten. Even though he told me it would take a while to see the final result, I didn't care! I was in love with him from that moment, and I call him my savior. I could see how he had sculpted my body like an artist would. Pretty amazing!

It's been over a year now, and I still have the same amazing results. I have been good at eating well and continue my workout as I used to, but now I don't have to struggle with that extra fat. I can focus on building muscle and it's a completely different work out routine for me. I feel so good about being back in the body I remember I had. This is what I'm supposed to look like!

“...I can say without hesitation, and without exaggeration, that I am already thrilled with the results. The difference is remarkable!”

I'd like to begin this testimonial by stating that I am a professional, corporate trainer and coach on the subject of “customer satisfaction.” Therefore, I understand the importance of this topic and I do not take it lightly. Whether customer or patient, I have extraordinarily high standards and expectations. Dr. Hovsepian has exceeded them.........substantially.Dr. Hovsepian first treated me for fatty tissue he removed from my forehead. This was the third time I required surgery for its removal, and he was the third surgeon to perform the surgery. I was struck by the difference in which he conducted the procedure. He took his time, explained every step, and, by his actions I remain convinced that he was more thorough than both prior surgeons. This time, unlike both other times, there was no pain afterwards. The entire healing process was much smoother.The second procedure I had done by Dr. Hovsepian was liposuction. It is something I have wanted for many years. My wife has been steadfastly against any kind of elective surgery. However, because she too was impressed with the result of the first procedure, she agreed to join me in a consultation. It was during that conversation that I thought Dr. Hovsepian was a graduate of one of my customer satisfaction courses. He knew exactly how to calm her fears and satisfy her concerns. He answered every question (and believe me, she had many) directly, clearly and respectfully. He put her at ease and it made all the difference.It has been only three weeks since my surgery. I tend to be an “instant gratification” sort of guy, not very patient. Dr. Hovsepian tells me that it will take three months to see the complete benefit of the surgery. That said, I can say without hesitation, and without exaggeration, that I am already thrilled with the results. The difference is remarkable. And, it was all done with NO PAIN! Amazing!

I look forward to recommending Dr. Hovsepian at every opportunity.

“Thank you for working for the best aesthetic outcome possible!”

Thank you for being part of the operating team that worked on me. Each time I can in for my follow-up you opened the door with a smile on your face and a gentle disposition. You have been the doctor that has taken care of me before, during, after and I am sure for the rest of my life. Thank you for working for the best aesthetic outcome possible!

Alfredo S. (Husband) / Los Angeles, CA

“You are more than a doctor you are an Artist!”

Excellent Job. You are more than a doctor you are an Artist! This is exactly the attribute I was looking for my wife. My wife looks great after her Abdominoplasty procedure. She has a beautiful shape from every angle. It was a difficult choice for her to undergo elective surgery, having the right doctor and staff made the difference. We would definitely refer you to our family and friends. Thank you for going above and beyond a Tummy Tuck.

“My only regret is that I did not call Dr. Hovsepian sooner!”

I had been considering getting a tummy tuck for several years but always put off the dream because I assumed the recovery time was more than I could manage with a full time job and 2 small kids at home. It wasn’t until a few months ago that I met a friend of a friend that showed me the results of her tummy tuck… and she looked amazing. Of course, I assumed that she probably had always looked that way and that she got “just a little work done.” Regardless, I was so impressed with her tummy that I asked her for her doctor’s name…Dr. Raffi Hovsepian in Newport Beach. She mentioned that she had done a lot of research before choosing Dr. Hovsepian and that I should start by visiting him and save myself some legwork.I was tired of just dreaming about a nice stomach. I thought I owed it to myself to at least hear what Dr. Hovespian had to say so I called him a within a week. I was booked for a free consultation within days of my first phone call. I went to the consultation with an open mind but I was pretty convinced that, no matter how great of a doctor he was, I was not going to be able to take time off of work and take care of my children during a long recovery.Well, everything changed the day of the consultation. I saw a video that explained the procedure and then I got to meet Dr. Hovsepian. He was absolutely wonderful and made me feel very relaxed. He answered all of my questions and explained how, for the best results, he could do so much more than just a “tuck.” He offered liposuction in the area as well as reconstruction of my abdominal muscles. I never imagined that I could get some many benefits from one procedure. At this point, I was wishing I had never come because I now really wanted to do this but still didn’t think I had the time! To make it even worse, when Dr. Hovsepian examined me, he said I was a great candidate! I was so excited but I had to ask the deal-breaking question, “How long is my recovery time?” The doctor said I could manage to go back to the office after 2 weeks. I was expecting 6-8 weeks, so needless to say, I was sold! Not only was this a reasonable amount of time for me but the cost of the procedure was very fair.The rest of my story is a little vague as it went so fast. I was able to book my surgery date within 2 weeks of my consultation. The Doctor and his staff were very supportive within these 2 weeks, answering numerous phone calls and questions. I had never had a surgery before but I was not the least bit nervous! The surgery center where my procedure took place was also very sweet and supportive. One of the things I do remember clearly from the morning of the surgery was that Dr. Hovsepian came to see me and spent a good 45 minutes just planning (aka drawing on my body like an artist). I recall him giving me a hug and then waking up the tightest abs imaginable! My surgery went exactly as planned with no surprises. To make sure everything continued to go well, the Doctor provided many follow up visits (including one to the surgery center at 5:00 am the day after my surgery).

Dr. Hovsepian, his Staff, the Anesthesiologist and the Staff at the surgery center were very professional and compassionate. The pain was much less than I had anticipated and recovery period was much quicker than I ever expected. Most importantly, my results are better than I could have ever dreamed of. My only regret is that I did not call Dr. Hovsepian sooner!

“Dr. Hovsepian was available to me 24 hours a day.”

I am a 41 year old female with a 24 year history of severe rheumatoid arthritis. As a result of taking steroids for many years I developed a buffalo hump, which is a very large hump at the base of the neck and upper back. I have been very embarrassed by this hump and nearly always wore something with a hood to cover it up. When my rheumatologist saw how upset and self conscious I was she told me to just grow my hair long. Recently I was told that it was basically a fat pad and that perhaps it could be removed with liposuction. I went to see Dr. Raffi Hovsepian, and he literally changed my life. A short time ago he performed liposuction on the hump and the result is so dramatic that I cannot stop looking at my back. I really feel like a new person. After the procedure, Dr. Hovsepian was available to me 24 hours a day. He called me several times to see how I was doing. He is a very kind, caring and compassionate doctor that I would highly recommend to anyone seeking a plastic surgeon.

Bella M. / Marina Del Rey, CA

“My result is so natural…”

After meeting several plastic surgeons, I had a consultation with Dr. Hovsepian for a tummy tuck and liposuction in an area that I hated and made me look fat. As a young female this was very concerning for me. I went ahead with the procedure and my results are phenomenal, I cannot even see or feel my incision. My result is so natural that nobody even knows I had surgery, sometimes I even forget myself. I continue to see Dr. Hovsepian for all of my cosmetic needs like Botox and Juvederm because he is wonderful at that as well. I now refer all of my friends and family to him!

“What a stress free relief this has been!”

Before I met Dr. Hovsepian I thought I would have this problem for the rest of my life. He and his staff made me feel so comfortable right from my first office visit.I have had many surgeries over the years, but this one has been the easiest. This is by far my largest incision, but at the same time, his layers of precise stitching (No Staples) made me so comfortable and almost pain free. I was not afraid to move around for fear the incision would burst open. What a stress free relief this has been!Dr. Hovsepian is so kind and caring. I remember my husband and sons saying that when he came to talk to them after my surgery was over that he was not in a hurry and talked to them on a level they could understand. He was very patient and answered all their questions. My surgery was in February and, still, every time I go back for my checkups he always asks about my husband and sons and always says to tell them hello and really means it. I don't know many doctors who care that much. My sons described him as sitting and talking with a friend. They were very impressed by him.There aren't enough words to express my gratitude to Dr. Hovsepian for the wonderful change he has made in my life. When the time comes that I no longer need to go back for checkups, I am really going to miss him.

He is an excellent surgeon, and has an incredible gift, and I am blessed to have been a recipient of that gift. He is my surgeon, but more than that, he is family.

“His work is flawless.”

Dr. Hovsepian is the best plastic surgeon I have ever had. He is very skilled with his hands. His work is flawless. What incorporates him and sets him apart from most doctors is his heart and passion for the patient to get the best results; it truly shows in his work.He is very kind and generous with his time, he makes sure you are comfortable and with his confidence you are truly excited and know the outcome will be another example of a very skilled doctor.I recommend him above any surgeon around and I know you will be well taken care of! I plan on seeing him in 2011 for a little work on my face (facelift). Enjoy this great doctor, there is very few that can meet his expertise!

Julie W. / Placentia, CA

“He takes the time to understand both your medical needs…”

I consulted Dr. Hovsepian for an abdominoplasty after researching other medical providers and receiving a glowing recommendation from another patient of his. From our first visit through surgery and follow up care, I have been consistently impressed with his compassion, knowledge, dedication and quest for perfection. My results are phenomenal and the care I received both before and after the procedure has been wonderful. He takes the time to understand both your medical needs and your aesthetic ones. He talks with you about expected results and encourages you to be informed about the procedure and its risks and benefits. He truly enjoys the give and take relationship between doctor and patient and this makes for a well rounded and satisfying process. I have recommended him to several of my friends and each one has the same impression of him as I do, a caring, dedicated surgeon at the top of his field. I will not hesitate to return to him in the event I desire future procedures. It has been a pleasure to be under his care.

J.W. / Fullerton, CA

“The aftercare I have received has been outstanding…”

I was overwhelmed at the amount of time Dr. Hovesepian took to get to know me and my medical condition, and to formulate the perfect solution. The surgery went beautifully, and it was not an easy one to perform. The aftercare I have received has been outstanding, regardless of the time of day I called. My results are beyond my wildest expectations and each day it looks better and better. I am so fortunate to have found Dr. Hovsepian and I wholeheartedly recommend him to my friends who are considering plastic surgery. He is a pleasure to know, as is his office staff.

“It is impossible to tell that I have ever had a problem.”

Although I have been blessed with good health most of my life, in early December I was diagnosed with cancer on my right ear. Dr. Hovsepian performed reconstructive surgery so superbly, that it is impossible to tell that I have ever had a problem.Although I had extensive holiday travel reservations, in addition to concerns about scheduling the operation so as to comply with current year deductible requirements, the doctor and his extremely efficient office staff were able to schedule my surgery within a week’s time, and I was able to travel to the east coast for the holidays as scheduled.In addition, since I am a “morning person”, for my convenience, Dr. Hovsepian scheduled my post-operative appointments as early as 6:00 AM, which truly is indicative not only to his whole-hearted efforts to assist his patient through a difficult time.

Andrea D. / Huntington Beach, CA

“The office itself is beautiful, the staff is very friendly, and, more importantly, Dr. Hovsepian is top notch.”

My experience at Dr. Raffi Hovsepian's office was excellent. The office itself is beautiful, the staff is very friendly, and, more importantly, Dr. Hovsepian is top notch. He is professional and compassionate. Dr. Hovsepian preformed a minor surgery on me, which healed beautifully. During the surgery he was so focused on the task at hand but at the same time also very attentive to me. I give my highest recommendation to Dr. Hovsepian. He is superb!

Candice W. / Costa Mesa, CA

“Dr. Hovsepian has a wonderful bedside manner and does beautiful work.”

I have been very impressed with Dr. Hovsepian. He listened to my concerns and addressed all my questions. Dr. Hovsepian has a wonderful bedside manner and does beautiful work.

“I was treated with kindness and professionalism, which in my opinion is a rare combination in today’s world!”

I would like to thank Dr. Hovsepian and his team for the excellent care provided to me during my recent surgery. I was treated with kindness and professionalism, which in my opinion is a rare combination in today’s world! I know that I would not hesitate to call Dr. Hovsepian for any future needs. Thank you again!

Linda E. / Orange County, CA

“Dr. Hovsepian and his entire Staff make it an effortless experience.”

I don't know anyone who likes having surgery, but Dr. Hovsepian and his entire Staff make it an effortless experience. Polite, friendly and totally professional care, emphasis on care, made it possible for me to understand, and remain calm throughout, every step of the procedure. From the day I called the office to schedule my first appointment, then having the pleasure to meet Dr. Hovsepian, then staff handling all the arrangements for my surgery, and all my follow up visits, I can't thank you all enough for taking such great care of me. And last, but not least, a big thanks to your surgery center and those great cocktails mixed up by the anesthesiologist! ! ! Should I ever find myself in need of a Plastic Surgeon again, Dr. Hovsepian will definitely be my first call.

T.N. / Los Angeles, CA

“I highly recommend Dr. Hovsepian…”

From the minute I met Dr. Hovsepian, I knew I was not only in the presence of a knowledgeable perfectionist, but also of a kind, positive and honest individual. Dr. Hovsepian actually loves what he does and brings that enthusiasm with him to each job! I never thought I would consider botox or fillers, as most of the results I had seen looked fake and overdone. Dr. Hovsepian addressed not only those concerns, but also each and every tedious question I had with honesty and patience. He did not try to convince me of anything!His professionalism and knowledge are impeccable and truly amazing! No procedure is insignificant for either Dr. Hovsepian or his thoughful and thorough staff. The best part is, I look just like myself, only refreshed! I highly recommend Dr. Hovsepian, his work and his staff, and trust no one else with my face!

Richard A. / Newport Beach, CA

“Dr. Hovsepian’s work is impeccable!”

Dr. Hovsepian is one of the best doctors I have ever met.I had been to eight previous physicians and received various diagnosis and it wasn’t until I went to Dr. Hovsepian that I was diagnosed correctly.I obtained more than one opinion on my surgical options and that choosing Dr. Hovsepian as my surgeon was the best decision I have ever made. I do not have a scar where he did surgery and he was so compassionate. I felt like I was a member of his immediate family.This upcoming November 2010, I am having Dr. Hovsepian do another surgery on me. I know I will be in the best hands again. Dr. Hovsepian's work is impeccable! I truly recommend Dr. Hovsepian for any procedure. He is the best and his work speaks for itself.

His staff is courteous, friendly, and warm. It is easy and convenient to get an appointment with Dr. Hovsepian and I have never had to wait to see him. His office is very efficient and professional.

I have had many doctors in my lifetime and I have never found one to be as caring and compassionate as Dr. Hovsepian. He treats his patients as if they are his family.

Larry T. / Huntington Beach, CA

“No other doctor in my long history has been able to attain such results.”

There are three important issues to be addressed in regard to Dr. Hovsepian. First and foremost the man has great hands. I have been on immune-suppressant drugs for eighteen years following a heart transplant, and being an active tennis player for forty years, I frequently develop skin cancers. My dermatologist advised me to see Dr. Hovsepian in January of 2010. Since then he has removed seven such serious lesions and I cannot locate the cutting site. Somehow he is able to work in such a fashion as to minimize scaring to borderline invisibility. No other doctor in my long history has been able to attain such results. Secondarily, he adheres to my appointment schedule. No tireless waits in his office, something I'm grateful for particularly after spending two hours waiting for my cardiologist to review my annual checkup results with me last week. And third fold he always has a personal comment about a prior statement I made to him during a previous visit which makes me feel a sense of connection to him that goes beyond just another chart. I am very happy to be under his care.
