highly recommend

I had a face lift after 4 fraxel treatments. He knows what he is doing and I felt very confident in his abilities. My procedures were in 2009. I am having Micro needling done now to eliminate wrinkles. My estatician is constantly commenting on the fine surgery performed on my face

A doctor who really cares

I went to 3 different doctors for a consult on Breast Augmentation and all but Dr. churukian had said high profile with over 400 cc's would be fine because I wanted to have at least a D cup. After discussing with Dr. Churukian why his opinion was different I not only learned that I did not have enough breast tissue for that big of implant but also that the size would not fit my proportions and make me look bigger. I decided to do the surgery with him & I am so happy with the results. I'm glad that I listened to a doctor that truly cared about what my outcome would be not just taking my money.I went to 3 different doctors for a consult on Breast Augmentation and all but Dr. churukian had said high profile with over 400 cc's would be fine because I wanted to have at least a D cup.

Botched rhinoplasty

Dr. Churukian performed a primary rhinoplasty. I was not happy with the results. He told me to wait a year so I did. I was still unhappy so, with much reservation, I allowed him to do a revision. I had to pay the fee for the anesthesiologist and surgery center. My nose turned out horribly. I regret ever letting him touch my face. I am left with a bulbous downturned beak nose deformity. I have seen several secondary rhinoplasty specialists and they are all reluctant to try to fix his botched work due to the scar tissue that has developed. And they want to charge between $12K to $18K to even try. After 10 years, I am still horrified with my results. I hate looking at myself in the mirror and in pictures. Do NOT go to Dr. Churukian for rhinoplasty.

Doctor's Response

It is unfortunate that one disgruntled patient is involved in posting false reviews. We have reported this to Vitals.com. Revisions are part of the process and occur rarely. In over 15 years of practice our revision rate is less than 2% for most procedures. This policy is carefully reviewed with each patient as is the risks of the surgery. We pride ourselves on providing a caring and supportive enviroment both before and after procedures. We want patients to be happy - and the vast majority are completely satisfied.
