Scar Revision "Dr. Parikh did a miraculous job on repairing a large gash in my forehead. I was a trauma patient taken to the OR and they wouldn't let me see my forehead, because the cut was so bad. Dr. Parikh was on call at the hospital on the night of the accident and I was lucky enough to have been paired with him. From the second he walked in I felt instantly comfortable with him and his medical advice. I have been under the knife several times with some very well known plastic surgeons and I would recommend Dr. Parikh over any of them. I wouldn't hesitate to have ANY procedure done with him in the future. I would recommend this surgeon to anyone looking for a good result. " - M.F.

Wondering whether it would be worth the heavy arms that my mother so generously passed on to me verses having the scars. Dr Pareeks attention to detail was amazing.

I highly recommend dr Pareek and The wonderful staff at the Aesthetic Facisl Body pals tic Surgery clinic" - S.H.

His personal commitment to my needs was first and foremost in every instance. He provided me with all pertinent information regarding my procedure and openly discussed all associated risk factors ensuring that I was making an educated decision to proceed while maintaining realistic expectations throughout the entire time I was under his care.

Hair Transplant "This was my first procedure done by Dr. Parikh and he is just amazing. From start to finish he showed that he care, not only about how I wanted to look, but in helping understand what needed to happen to get there. Both he and the staff showed compassion during the 4hr operation (I was not sedated), constantly checking in to make sure I was comfortable and not in pain. I'll defiantly be back!" - G.M.
Fillers and Botox "I had Botox and fillers done with Dr. Parikh and Kristina the RN. He said that it wasn't going to hurt when he did the injections and I thought he was kidding, but it really didn't hurt! The numbing lotion was amazing instead of numbing injections which I've in the past at other places and were painful. It was so sweet of him to guide the nurse Kristina while doing the injections. Botox here is different than the Botox that I've done previously at other practices. You all seem very educated and know exactly where to put the Botox to make it work perfectly. He made me feel as comfortable as I do with Dr. Young AKA Dr. Cutie. I've been a patient with Dr. Young for many years (8) and I think they are a wonderful team together. My results are great and I will continue to come back to these kind people for any of my future needs. They really feel like my second family and I couldn't be more grateful to have found them." - C.M.

Rhinoplasty: I made the decision to have rhinoplasty surgery by Dr. Parikh and am extremely happy with the results. He really listened to what my ideal end result would be, but was also very honest about what I can expect instead of just saying yes to me and risking me not getting results I wanted. This was because my rhinoplasty was complicated so I appreciated him taking the time to talk and explain things to me, and really listen to me. It turned out great and I am so pleased with how I look now. He didn't just fix my nose but also made sure that the shape still worked with my face. He really cared that I was happy with my results and made me more comfortable with the whole process. The entire staff at the office was great too - everyone was so nice and welcoming. I've always wanted to have surgery but never really thought it would be something I would do, but I am so happy that I made the decision to do it. - KW

I would definitely recommend him to any one of my friends or family anytime! Thank you Dr. Parikh for helping me look fabulous! " - J.Y.
Breast Implant Exchange to Silicone with Breast Lift & Liposuction Belly. “If you're looking for a surgeon who is honest, has impeccable attention to detail, and very skilled, Dr. Parikh is your surgeon. He performed a breast implant replacement and breast lift, along with liposuction on my abdomen area. I'm very excited about the results. I didn’t have one second of anxiety or concern. He listened to my to all of my questions and desired outcomes. I was at ease the moment I chose him as my surgeon. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone, and I would definitely go to him again. He's a class act.” - L.D.
Rhinoplasty. "I turned 61 years old in March of 2015. My Facebook friends had a contest to see who had the funniest prom picture, and we put them all online. I didn't win funniest, but I did win "Most Changed" (or at least to me it was most changed). My nose had gotten bigger and droopier over the years until I didn’t even look like that prom photo.
Enter Dr. Parikh. He is a very friendly, outgoing man with a way of putting you at ease. I soon found myself telling him about how sad I was that my nose had gotten so much bigger and that is was distressing to me to envision the future with an even larger one. We sat down to talk about my expectations and the reality of what I could expect.
After the surgery, Dr. Parikh called or texted me nearly every day to ask about my progress and comfort. One week later, he took off the splint -- Wow, it was my old nose again! Maybe even better since, he reduced the bridge width too. I could also see improvement in the width and length of the tip.
I'm not going to tell you it was a piece of cake. Would I do it again? You bet, especially with Dr. Parikh! I've had many surgeries over the years and never had a better feeling about my doctor.
Friends have started commenting that I must have lost weight. Hah!
I would highly recommend Dr. Parikh for any surgery you're contemplating. He's truly a nice man and an artist with faces. Thanks again Doc!” - M.J.
Arm Lift - Liposuction & Brachioplasty. “From the moment I met Dr. Parikh, I knew I was in good hands. He was warm and engaging, and he listened to my concerns. He explained the procedure (arm lift) to me in such a way that left no stone unturned -- he covered every step in detail and addressed my pain management concerns. The surgery was such a success that I immediately referred him to my friend’s daughter, who was looking to get a mini tummy tuck. I am so grateful to Dr. Parikh for, not only, his outstanding work but his caring demeanor as well. I am willing to fly from Nashville to Seattle if ever I need cosmetic surgery again.” - R.D.

Breast Augmentation Round Silicone Implants. “I am a perioperative nurse and have had the pleasure of working with a number of surgeons. So when choosing the surgeon I wanted for my procedure, I knew that I wanted Dr. Parikh because I have seen his amazing work for myself. Dr Parikh performed a bilateral breast augmentation on me, and I cannot say enough nice things about him. Not only did he do a wonderful job on my breast augmentation, but his bedside manner was outstanding. He is a great surgeon and a wonderful person. He was in constant contact with me post-op, making sure I was recovering well. After surgery, I had absolutely no bruising that I could see. The pain was also very minimal, and I was able to return to work light duty after 6 days. I am in love with the way I look now! If I had to do it all over again I would not change a thing. Dr. Parikh was able to give me exactly what I wanted and I am so happy with the way my breast look now. Thank you so much Dr. Parikh for such an amazing job!” - L.B.
“When looking into an abdominoplasty and possible lower body lift, I had several criteria that I looked for in a surgeon. It was important to me to find a doctor that was highly recommended, was known for great skill, graduated from a top tier medical school, and had their surgical training from a prestigious medical university like Vanderbilt. After consulting various top doctors in my geographic area, I selected Dr. Rikesh Parikh. I found that he demonstrated a meticulous surgical technique and produced natural looking results. Finding a surgeon whose aesthetic sensibility matched my desired surgical results -- physique appropriate and naturally appearing -- was paramount, and Dr. Parikh was ideal. My consultations were so enjoyable. He is an excellent communicator, whose compassion and genuine interest in his patients is evident. He always took the time to understand my individual needs. During my time as his patient, I felt completely comfortable recommending him to friends and family. I will always be thankful to him for providing such a positive and stress-free surgical experience.” - C.B.
Breast Augmentation Round Saline Implants. “When I went to the doctor for a consultation, I was nervous. I had wanted this procedure done since I was in middle school. I finally talked my mom into taking me to a doctor to discuss a breast augmentation. I talked to Dr. Parikh and made my appointment for after my 18th birthday. After talking to him, I wasn't nervous anymore -- I was excited. A few weeks later, I went in for my surgery and came out with a full C cup -- just what I wanted. I was originally an A cup. I asked Dr. Parikh to make my breasts bigger but without making me fake looking and disproportional. My new breasts fit my body correctly and look natural. After the surgery, he called me that night to check up on me. The incisions are healing nicely and my boobs look great! I am so pleased with the work he did. He never rushed us or made me feel nervous. Thank you so much for the work you did Doctor Parikh! - H.S.
Mini Tummy Tuck. "I had lost a considerable amount of weight and had excessive hanging skin on my abdomen. I wanted a tummy tuck. After being evaluated by a leading cosmetic surgeon in Nashville, TN, I was not sure if I wanted to have the procedure. I felt uncomfortable and felt that the surgeon seemed to lack in bedside manner. Upon first meeting Dr. Parikh, I was instantly comfortable. He is very concerned with the comfort of his patients. He answered all of my questions and even gave me his cell phone to call if I had more. I was so comfortable with him that I scheduled my surgery right away. The surgery went great. I had zero complications. My pain was managed very well. I had been worried about the surgical drains but that was easy to manage as well. Dr. Parikh checked on me often after the surgery and when I did have questions he responded immediately. I am two months post op now and am so pleased with the results. I would go to him again in a second!" - M.A.
Breast Implant Exchange to Silicone & Breast Lift. "I am 5’9” with a long torso. When I was 22 years old, with AAA or basically nonexistent breasts, I had a Breast Augmentation with 350cc saline implants on top of the muscle. The implants gave me a full C cup. I was thrilled and it was the best decision I have ever made.
Fast forward 28 years and two children later, my breasts had fallen and my long torso looked very flat on top. After meeting with 6 different surgeons, I was told that I had two options. One was to replace the original implants with larger implants. The second, and more costly and riskier was to replace the implants and have a breast lift.
I dropped the idea altogether as the cost didn’t seem worth it when I could just wear a heavily padded bra that pushed my breasts back to their original position.
Fast forward another couple of years and I wanted to revisit the idea. Although my implants didn’t show any deterioration, I felt like I didn’t want to get any older and HAVE to replace them. I found Dr P through an email from one of the offices I had researched for another procedure.
I met with Dr P and he suggested that I have the implants replaced and a breast lift. I explained my hesitation regarding the healing time and additional cost for the breast lift. He understood and agreed that he could just do the replacement but wanted me to understand that the outcome may not be as desirable.
After a few more visits I felt so comfortable that I agreed to allow Dr P to make the final decision on the operating table. He agreed to start with just the implant revision and determine if that was sufficient. If not, I gave him permission to perform the breast lift too.
In the end he performed the breast lift in addition to replacing my implants and I am nothing but thrilled all over again!! My breasts look amazing – better than I ever thought they could! I now have 650cc Silicone implants and I love them. I realize now that the cost was so worth it. Dr P did an incredible and immaculate job! In summary, I would recommend Dr P to anyone for any area of his specialty. He's an enthusiastic doctor who is a perfectionist, and quite particular about his work – traits you definitely want in your plastic surgeon. In addition, he is very attentive and has a great bedside manner. Finally, and maybe most importantly, he is proactive – he will listen to what you want and then let you know how he can make it happen. His team is also wonderful and so supportive! " - M.M.
