Patient Reviews

Rejuvenating your appearance with surgery such as a facelift or even a nonsurgical procedure such as Botox or filler injections, can be a difficult process and involve a lot of research. To help those looking for honest information on elective surgeries, we’ve asked several of our real patients to candidly share their personal experiences and story.

I spent quite some time doing my research in my quest to "freshen up". Therefore, I often found myself in many a surgeons office staring in the handheld mirror dissecting every little thing that I hoped for and everything that I wanted to stay away from!! From the very moment that I met Dr. Parikh I knew that this was my last stop. His demeanor and his excitement to help me achieve what I hoed to see in the mirror was infectious. All through the process Dr. Parikh and his staff were available to me to hold my hand, listen and address any concerns or issues I thought I had. It was a bumpy road but in the end it turned out exactly as Dr. P. told me it would. I was a doubting Thomas but in the end I get to say "Dr. Parikh YOU WERE RIGHT!!" Thank you.

The only place you should go to have anything done on your face! This professional duo create amazing results. They are professional, caring, and want the best outcome for you. Their follow-up care is amazing. It’s been 8 months since my LVT surgery and I am so pleased with the results. The office staff is wonderful also. Thank you Dr. Lieberman and Dr. Parikh for giving me back my more youthful face! My husband is thrilled!

These two doctors are not just plastic surgeons, they are artists and they take their craft seriously. I should know, 4 weeks ago I had a face and neck revision and threw in a brow lift for good measure and the results were nothing less than outstanding. Don’t trust your face to just anyone, Dr Parikh and Dr. Lieberman specialize in faces, they even perform the surgeries together to make sure the patient has the best possible outcome. And you will. Guaranteed.

The staff and doctors here are truly the best! From the time you step in the door, throughout the procedure, and while you are home recovering, they continue their care. I have had several procedures (some major) and I'm so very happy with the results. Their follow-up and your satisfaction with the results are paramount. I travel over 2-hours one way to see them and would not consider going to anyone else. Go see them!

I've seen Dr. Lieberman for various things such as Botox, lasers, skin pinch and lip lift. He has a very natural and conservative approach. He and his staff are very professional and easy to work with. I highly recommend this team!

Linda wanted to look her very best for her wedding day so she decided to go forward with a subnasal lip lift with Drs. L&P. She was so happy not to feel insecure about her lips on the big day. In fact, she said she has never felt more beautiful and confident.

Nichole found Drs. L&P through a co-worker and decided to finally go forward with the cosmetic procedures – blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty & TRL laser resurfacing – that she had always wanted to do. She felt confident that Drs. L&P would give her the look she had always wanted.

“I just felt so much better and more confident having my eyes done that I don’t know why I waited.”

When Marla learned a large piece of skin from her face would need to be removed due to skin cancer, she was scared. Her dermatologist recommended Drs. Lieberman and Parikh as skilled facial plastic surgeons, so she called and left a message. Minutes later, she was surprised when Dr. Lieberman personally returned her call to reassure her and to let her know he could remove any scar left by the Mohs Micrographic Surgery and that her face would not be altered.

While discussing the procedure with Drs. Lieberman and Parikh, Marla decided that since she had to have facial surgery, she would also something for herself, something to make herself look and feel better. Marla decided to get a blepharoplasty, a minor surgery to lift her upper eyelids to give her a brighter, more youthful appearance.

A year later, Marla is cancer free. Not only has the scar on her face completely disappeared, but she looks and feels better than ever.

“I feel so good about myself. I feel like I’m the best I can be at this point in my life.”

One day, Cherrell looked in the mirror and literally did not recognize herself. After years of caring for her children, grandchildren and aging parents, Cherrell had forgotten to take care of herself and as she says, “lost herself in the process.” Deciding to get a full face and neck lift from Drs. Lieberman and Parikh was part of Cherrell’s journey to reclaim her identity and her confidence.

“I really just wanted to look in the mirror and be happy. It has alleviated vanity in a weird way. I just look fresh, and healthy, and happy.”

After a difficult divorce, Cathy, a 51-year-old woman from Los Gatos, felt like her face had taken on all the sad emotions from the divorce process. She had never considered surgery before but after her facelift and necklift, she has a renewed self-confidence as well as outlook on her life.

“All I could think about was myself and my face. I feel like it’s really changed my confidence and it’s allowed me to be more social.”

Before her rhinoplasty, Lindsey was self-conscious about her nose and always became anxious when talking to other people. Drs. Lieberman & Parikh listened to her concerns and helped her understand what she could expect from the surgery.

Now, Lindsey says she doesn’t even think about her nose anymore and is thrilled with her rhinoplasty results.

“Even my hairdresser couldn’t figure out why I had more hair. There was no scar, no evidence of the transplant and I didn’t say anything. It’s still a mystery to her.”

Andrew always had thick hair, but when he got cancer in his 30s, the chemotherapy and radiation stunted his hair growth and he never fully regained his hair. His new appearance, with a receding hairline and large bald patch on the top of his head, greatly affected his self-esteem. After doing online research, Andrew chose Drs. Lieberman & Parikh because of their credentials and training, and scheduled two hair transplants at their San Francisco-area practice. It’s still too early to see the full results of the second hair transplant, but he is thrilled with the results from the first, as you can see from the before and after photos here.

“I came to Drs. Lieberman & Parikh because I liked their team approach, and I felt confident in their ability to provide natural-looking results.”

Becky visited Drs. Lieberman and Parikh at their Bay Area practice three months before her son was to get married. She wanted to look her absolute best for the big day, but was concerned that she didn’t have enough time to get a facelift and go through the healing process. After calling several of Drs. Lieberman & Parikh’s patients, she was reassured that she would really like the way she looked in about eight weeks. And it turned out to be true. At the wedding, Becky felt that she looked radiant and rested and as good as she possibly could.

“The procedure didn’t really change the way I look. It made me look fresher, rested, and took maybe 15 years away.”

Melissa has been active all her life, but as the years went on, she began to feel that her face didn’t match the way she felt inside. The problem areas, as she described them, were throughout her cheeks and under her chin. Also, there were lines and wrinkles forming that she didn’t like. Melissa chose Drs. Lieberman & Parikh because they operate together at their San Francisco-area practice and both specialize in the face and neck. She felt, from the moment she met the doctors, that she could trust them to listen to her concerns and provide the results she wanted. Now, a few years after her procedures, Melissa is so happy that she had the work done and feels that she has “never looked better.”

Ali wasn’t ready for a lower facelift yet but she wanted a more defined jawline and neck area. When she came to Drs. L&P, they recommended the latest and most effective nonsurgical face and neck tightening device on the market, FaceTite / NeckTite. Ali is thrilled with her results.

“What made me comfortable choosing Drs. Lieberman & Parikh is that they specialize in facial plastic surgery, so I felt like if they can reconstruct someone’s whole face, they would do a great job with filler. And it’s true – with Drs. Lieberman & Parikh, you’re going to look bomb.”

Dasha has always been gorgeous, but when she started her modeling career, she realized there were some slight adjustments she wanted to make to her face to enhance her natural beauty.

Since meeting Dr. Parikh several years ago, Dasha has become a regular at L&P Aesthetics. She receives dermal fillers, lip filler as well as Dermalinfusion to keep her skin on point. Check out her stories here:

“I always want to feel like the true me, but I’m getting older, and let’s be honest – we can all use a little help sometimes. L&P Aesthetics compliments what I do at home to make me look and feel my best.”

Yan-Yan, a working mom of two kids, eats well and works-out regularly with her husband. She loves the way she looks but as she wants to keep looking great throughout her life. In addition to taking great care of her skin with medical-grade skincare products, Yan-Yan receives regular facials and chemical peels from the aestheticians at L&P Aesthetics.

“Drs. Lieberman and Parikh are simply the best. Not only are they incredible at what they do, but they are just really good guys. I really appreciate their honesty in regards to setting expectations and sharing their vision for natural looking results. I love that they are my trusted resource aging gracefully.”

Heather found L&P Aesthetics while researching the best rhinoplasty surgeons.  She ended up getting her nose done with Drs. Lieberman & Parikh and remembers a surreal feeling when her cast came off and she saw that her nose looked exactly how she had imagined.

Since then, Heather has been coming to the nonsurgical providers at L&P Aesthetics for Dermal Fillers, Halo Hybrid laser treatments, BBL Forever Young, Microneedling and regular Dermal Infusions. To her, the maintenance is worth it because she doesn’t feel pressure to wear so much make up and she feels more confident now that she looks like the refreshed version of herself she wants the world to see.

“These doctors are the BEST at what they do! I’ve read a lot of stories about people going to a plastic surgeon for a routine procedure and coming back a complete mess, so I was terrified of having a new doctor work on my face. However, Dr. Parikh knows what he’s talking about and doesn’t push you into crazy solutions but recommends ways to slowly get the results you’re looking for.”

Roop came to L&P Aesthetics before her engagement party because she didn’t want to feel self-conscious about the dark circles under her eyes during her wedding season. She said that Dr. Parikh was especially helpful because he explained why she was seeing the dark circles and what she could do to slowly improve them.

After her initial treatment with dermal filler in her eye troughs, she  immediately started getting compliments about how alive and awake she was looking. And at her engagement party and on her wedding day, she said she felt totally unselfconscious and happy with looking like herself.
