What is your typical process for working with a new patient?

Dr. Markarian doesn’t view his job as simply a practicing plastic surgeon. His emphasis is on creating newfound self-confidence in his patients – so they look and feel like the best version of themselves. He focuses on supporting his patients from when they enquire and even beyond their aftercare post-surgery.

 

Most new patients will first speak to one of Dr. Markarian patient relations staff, who will discuss their procedure of interest, answer any questions they may have and assist them in scheduling a consultation at a convenient time for them. The day before their consultation, new patients will receive a phone call to help them prepare for their consultation and provide instructions on how to get to Dr. Markarian’s office. Dr. Markarian encourages new patients to write a list of questions to bring to their consultation to ensure they are as informed as possible!

 

On the day of your consultation, new patients will be asked to fill out some paperwork before their appointment with Dr. Markarian. Therefore, it’s advised that new patients arrive 10 minutes before their appointment time.

 

During your consultation, Dr. Markarian will discuss new patient’s goals and how to achieve them. He takes the time to understand his patient’s circumstances and the best way to help them feel and become their best self. New patients will also be able to view some before and after pictures so that they can see previous results of Dr. Markarian in their procedure of interest. This is a great opportunity for new patients to ask any questions they may have. Dr. Markarian ensures all of his patients are comfortable before moving ahead with booking surgery. He will discuss all of the possible options a new patient may have.

 

After your consultation, whether you have decided to proceed with a procedure or not, Dr. Markarian and his staff will regularly check in to see how new patients are progressing in their plastic surgery journey.

What advice would you give a patient looking to find a provider in your specialty?

Dr. Markarian recommends that any patient considering or seeking plastic surgery, whether surgical or non-surgical, should book consultations only with Board Certified Plastic Surgeons. They should also consider the plastic surgeon’s expertise in their procedure of interest and read any reviews that they have on Google or RealSelf, for example. New patients should also consider how comfortable they feel when they meet with plastic surgeons.

What treatments are you most excited to offer?

Dr. Markarian is excited by surgeries and treatments that allow him to showcase his expertise and give his patients the best results possible.

Breast Augmentation is a particular focus of Dr. Markarian as he thoroughly discussed his patient’s desired aesthetic and offers a variety of implant options. Dr. Markarian prides himself on providing breast augmentation results immediately, so that his patients do not need to wait too long for their implants to drop.

It’s all about the detail for Dr. Markarian with rhinoplasty surgeries and nose shaping. Dr. Markarian understands and thrives on the incredible attention to detail that nose surgeries require. He enjoys creating a balanced, natural, facial aesthetic that enhances his patient’s noses to complement their overall facial appearance.

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) and Liposuction surgeries have always fascinated Dr. Markarian. The variety of solutions that Dr. Markarian can offer for these surgeries is always an enjoyable discussion for Dr. Markarian as it allows him to individualize his treatments, whether surgical or non-surgical, to his patient’s specific needs.

What is the best reaction you’ve ever received from a patient?

The most satisfying reaction from patients for Dr. Markarian is when they tell him they have a renewed confidence. Confidence in themselves, in their relationships and even in finding their dream job.

What should patients know about your pricing?

Pricing for all procedures is usually discussed during a consultation as it depends on what procedure(s) is chosen and if any hospital fees are required. New patients can take advantage of Dr. Markarian’s RealSelf offers. CareCredit is offered as a financing option.

How many years have you been in business?

Dr. Markarian has been serving the people of Boston since 2014 and has been practicing for over 15 years.

What do clients have to say about you?

As soon as I met Dr. Markarian, I instantly felt comfortable and at ease. When i first spoke to him about my concerns with my nose, he knew exactly what I was talking about right away, and was honest with me about the procedure, pricing, and what was realistic for my situation! I had met with him multiple times for multiple consults because of my nerves, and he never made me feel like I was wasting his time or silly for being unsure, and never pressured me at all about my decision. He listened, and answered every single question I had, no matter how small. My nose came out beautiful and I have gotten so many compliments on how natural it looks. The healing was fairly simple and painless, and is healing very quickly as well. It has done wonders for my confidence! I was so happy with my procedure that I even recommended a couple people to him that are also considering rhinoplasty. Thank you Dr. Markarian!!!

I had 2 babies, 10 years apart, both were born c section.

My belly never went back to normal, it was really big, especially after a big meal, I was so self conscious and uncomfortable all the time. I wore baggy clothes to cover it. Years passed and I tried everything, diet, exercise ect. Then I found Dr. Markarian and he knew exactly what was wrong ! I had diastasis, my abdominal muscles were separated! I had the surgery to repair them, along with Lipo on my sides and a tummy tuck, I was not expecting the amazing results that I had, especially at my age (56) ! Dr. Mark is very experienced , with a gentle hand, he has a wonderful bedside manner, I now consider him a friend, and he’s easy on the eyes. Highly recommend.

Really wonderful experience.

I reached out to several specialist re: breast augmentation in the Boston area and, ultimately, chose Dr, Markarian, as I was immediately put at ease during the consultation. Part of the consult was a "real talk" as to what is possible and what is not. I felt assured that I was in great hands and signed up for the procedure.

His staff sprung immediately into action and got me a surgery date that could work and fit in with some major work related dates that I could not miss. Throughout the process, Dr. Markarian's team has been supportive, encouraging, responsive and kind in the most amazing ways.

The surgery was done at a local hospital and Dr. Markarian and the staff there were wonderful, putting me at ease and answered all of my questions. The after care support I received, again, was tremendous, and I cannot speak highly enough of the knowledge and experience Dr. Markarian brings to the table. I feel confident again with my body, and am looking very much forward to summer when I can wear clothes I would normally shy away from.
