What Patients Are Saying
I was seen in Milton ER for a ruptured implant and the ER called Dr. Markarian into review the case. He reviewed my case and went over every detail with me on what needed to be done. He removed the ruptured implant and replaced both implants with two new ones. I found him to be very trustworthy and true to his word . He did an amazing job and I could not be happier. I am very grateful he is the doctor they called to review my case. They look even better than what they did before .
Dr. Markarian is an extremely skilled and talented plastic surgeon. His warm personality made my entire experience pleasant and comfortable . I had no doubts or concerns about my procedure, because he had answered all my (at times annoying) questions. He did a breast reduction(a very difficult case) on my cousin which turned out amazing, so I knew he was a perfectionist even before I had my procedure.
I have always had large breasts and my ability to be comfortable in my own body and participate in daily activities that were benifcial to my health, was extremely limited. The results made me a lot more confident and overall made me a much happier person who now can can run freely without having to cover up with sweatshirt! I highly recommend getting the procedure with Dr. Markarian if you want to be satisfied with the results.
I want to thank you for helping me with the implant surgery. It meant a lot to me to see how professional and caring you were. Simply he is the best, he is attentive Helpful. Enlarging my breasts was always a dream, but I was very afraid of the possible results. However, your attentiveness and assured words made me believe That It would turn out well, and it did. I am so happy with the job you did que. I feel so much better … much more than what I expected.
Dr. Markarian is personable, friendly and he really understands what the patient (me) wants. I have been to him three times for injections and he has always done a superb job. No pain, no swelling, no bruising. Within a week I look really natural – But- better!
I recently moved from Mass to Florida, came back for Dr. Markarian’s treatment!
A week and half ago I planted nose first on an end table, leaving me with a broken nose and gash. Doctor Markarian drove two hours to the hospital to reset my nose and and clean and stitch the rather jagged gash. He was an absolute delight, charming and comforting, and made what could have been a traumatizing experience easy and and as painless as possible. A week and a half later, its apparent that there will be barely any sign that I had a nose wound at all, so skillfully did he repair the injury. I would recommend Dr. Margarin with reservation to anyone. He has a wonderful bedside manner, and absolutely flawless skills. I’m very grateful to have had his services.
Excellent experience!!! I have been getting Botox for over 10 years and no one has gone over what exact muscles in the face were being affected by the Botox until I met Dr Markarian. He carefully explained and pointed out the differences from one side of the face to the other and why one side needed more than the other. I was not rushed like in other offices. He took his time and gave me a perfect result! No touch-ups, no bruises!! Couldn’t imagine going anywhere else.
Dr Markarian is brilliant!! I’ve been getting fillers for over 8 years now, and no one has explained the anatomy to me in such detail yet in such a simple way. I felt like I was getting an anatomy lesson during the procedure. He even pointed out the grooves in the bones he encounters in his surgeries and pointed out the very same areas that he would be filling during my procedure. It made so much sense. Great, great, results. So happy!!! I would give him 6 stars if I could 🙂
After a surfing accident my nose was busted in several places. Dr. Mark was very thorough with his procedures. I have never had plastic surgery before, and I was nervous, but this was a great experience. I thought for sure there’d be some severe scarring, but due to his talent I was more than satisfied. From start to finish it was a great experience I highly recommend him. He really made me feel at home and very welcomed.
