Dr. Grigoryants specializes in closed or scarless rhinoplasty (nose reshaping or nose job). Rhinoplasty is performed to improve the shape of the nose and in many patients to improve breathing. Dr. Grigoryants performs endonasal (closed) rhinoplasty to avoid unpredictable scarring on the nose. He places incisions inside the nose so that no scar will be present across the bottom portion of the nose. Dr. Grigoryants performs open rhinoplasty in some cases of complex revisions. In some patients, rhinoplasty is combined with chin augmentation to improve facial appearance and balance. Our photo gallery and instagram page has many examples of these procedures.
Dr. Grigoryants' ethnic mix of patients is diverse including Caucasian, Middle eastern, Hispanic, Asian, and African American ethnicities as his patients come to him for rhinoplasty not only from Los Angeles but also from various parts of the world. Certain nasal anatomy traits and skin thickness variations exist among different ethnic groups. These should be taken into account when performing ethnic rhinoplasty to achieved desired results. Your nasal anatomy and skin thickness will be discussed with you during your consultation.
Is performed along with cosmetic nose reshaping (rhinoplasty) or alone in patients who are mainly interested in improving nasal airway patency. Mechanical nasal airway obstruction can be caused by a deviated septum, enlarged turbinates, and narrow internal nasal valve. To open nasal airways, Dr. Grigoryants performs septoplasty, turbinate reduction, and nasal valve repair. Dr. Grigoryants performs functional rhinoplasty using closed (scarless) technique. He does not use nasal packing after surgery.
Many men present to Dr. Grigoryants for rhinoplasty. Some men who undergo nose reshaping prefer to maintain a masculine appearance of the nose including having a straight profile and not raising the tip above 90 degrees. Other male patients prefer to have a slightly sloped profile with a supratip break and the tip raised to about 95 degrees. Dr. Grigoryants will discuss the goals of rhinoplasty with each patient in detail and decide with the patient what shape of the nose will better suit their face.
Patients undergoing facial feminization have turned to Dr. Grigoryants for nose feminization surgery, also known as transgender rhinoplasty. The shape of the nose greatly contributes to the overall feminization of the face. In general, to give the nose a more feminine shape, Dr. Grigoryants may need reduce the dorsal hump, narrow the tip of the nose if wide, raise the tip of the nose to 95-100 degrees, and reduced the width of the nostrils. As part of feminization (transgender) rhinoplasty, Dr. Grigoryants will also open the nasal airway.
Revision rhinoplasty is commonly performed by Dr. Grigoryants. He performs revision rhinoplasty using closed and open rhinoplasty techniques. In some patients who do not have enough septal cartilage left, an ear cartilage may need to be used for nasal reconstruction. Not every patient would be a candidate for revision rhinoplasty. Patients with much scarring and thick skin are less likely to benefit from additional surgery.
Dr. Grigoryants performs breast augmentation, breast reduction, and breast lift. In women with sagging breasts, breast lift will improve the shape and position of the breasts. Breast lift may be performed alone or combined with breast augmentation. Many women who are bothered by large and heavy breasts benefit from breast reduction. This procedure reduces the size of the breasts and lifts the breasts at the same time. For breast augmentation, Dr. Grigoryants uses silicone or saline implants. He also performs breast revision surgery and treats patients with breast implant illness.
Is used to remove excess skin and fat in the abdominal area. During a tummy tuck loose abdominal muscles are tightened to further flatten the abdomen. Liposuction is frequently combined with tummy tuck procedures to remove fat excess from the flanks, thighs, arms, or back. Dr. Grigoryants places the tummy tuck incision in such a fashion so that the scar can be easily hidden by underwear. Patients who do not have skin excess but primarily fat excess can be effectively treated by liposuction alone. Dr. Grigoryants performs an advanced tummy tuck procedure to produce best possible results.
Includes such procedures as face lift, neck lift, brow lift, eyelid surgery, and placement of chin implants. These procedures restore a more youthful appearance of the face. Face lift and neck lift procedures can also be combined with liposuction to remove fat excess in the face and neck. Non surgical facial rejuvenation utilizes such products as Botox, Jeuveau, Dysport, Restylane®, Juvederm, Voluma. Dr. Grigoryants also uses newer products such as Jeuveau (a toxin similar to Botox) and Versa (a hyaluronic acid filler). These injectables effectively reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles.

I thank you very much for the job you performed for me. I really enjoy your work and like the nose that fits me nicely. Thank you for making the surgery to go well and making my nose perfectly formed. Moreover, I can breath a little even though only 2 weeks passed since my surgery. Thank you a lot. I am already and will recommend you to those who consider having a plastic surgery. I wish you lots of success, customers, reputation, and everything the best.Best wishes to you and thank you very much. See you in 2 months.Sincerely,
Dear Dr. Grigoryants,I have to tell you how happy I am with the surgery you performed on me. It really changed my self image. You are the best doctor. Keep up the good work.
Dr. Grigoryants,You chose to become a physician in order to help people, and made it your life's work.It's a vitally important job, not an easy one, and carries heavy responsibilities balanced by the intangible rewards of the good you do.Well, those intangible rewards just got a little more tangible.We are proud to let you know that you have recently been honored by your patients with a Patients’ Choice recognition.This honor reflects the difference you've made in these people's lives through the exceptionally high praise granted to you by your patients.Every month, more than 40,000 patients across the U.S. provide online feedback about their experiences with their doctors. They rate various components such as bedside manner, doctor-patient face time, degree of follow-up, courtesy of office staff, and overall opinions.Over the course of 2008, these reviews have totaled hundreds of thousands patient opinions. While physicians generally receive positive reviews from their patients, only a select few receive uniformly rave reviews across the board. Of those that receive rave reviews, only physicians like yourself -- with near perfect scores – have been voted by their patients for this honor.In fact, of the nation’s 720,000 active physicians, less than 5% were accorded this honor by their patients in 2008.You are, indeed, the Patients’ Choice; one of the physicians most highly regarded by their patients.Congratulations once again on this outstanding distinction.Sincerely,
How to have a flat stomach in 2 ½ hours:I had a tummy tuck on December 23, 2008 and I cannot thank Dr. Grigoryants enough for giving me back my confidence. When I saw myself in the mirror 5 days after my surgery I felt like I was 15 years old again with a young body and flat stomach. I couldn't believe that I didn't have any more bulging around my stomach. It is crazy the way tummy tucks work- one day you have this big fat belly and 2 ½ hours later you wake up with none. I recommend Dr. Grigoryants to anyone who is considering any type of plastic surgery. He is knowledgeable, experienced, affordable, humble, cute, and always has a smile on his face. I am forever grateful!
Thank you so much for amazing results of my rhinoplasty. It has only been a week and a half and I can't believe how terrific my nose looks. When I originally decided to have the surgery, I would have never expected my nose to look so perfect and so quickly! This surgery has given me an increased sense of self-confidence, and I already have friends and acquaintances telling me how beautiful I look. I am so glad I decided to committ to surgery and I recommend anyone who has considered having this procedure to come straight to you for incredible results guaranteed!
My experience has been great from the very first consultation with Dr.Grigoryants. I knew right away that he was smart and was not just trying to persuade me into having surgery. He gave me very helpful and honest information. I chose Dr.Grigoryants out of 4 other doctors I had consultations with. I felt so sure and comfortable about him. I was not nervous at all on my surgery day. All the staff were really kind also. My biggest surprise was after my surgery. I had my surgery early in the morning and late on that evening, Dr.Grigoryants called to see how I was doing! I could not believe how caring he was. I would want to get more procedures done just because he is so great!!
Thank you for another job well done. Once again, you have exceeded my expectations and I honestly couldn't be any more grateful to have found your practice. Not only do I have a renewed confidence but this experience has been a huge catalyst in my life as it has reaffirmed/ inuigarated my drive to pursue a life in the medical field. In the many years to come, I hope I will be able to gain a fraction of the expertise / artistry that you passess and to one day, be able to make as big of a difference on a patient's life as you have had on mine. Thank you for sharing your gift and changing the lives of many!
I know I'm not even close to seeing my final result but I couldn't be happier! That being said - I wanted to thank you and your staff... I honestly couldn't have asked for a better experience or doctor. Your compassion is greatly appreciated! Thank You for making my experience, as well as the experience of many others. such a pleasant one!!!

Dear Dr. Grigoryants, Thank you so much for everything you have done. This surgery completely changed my self -image......Sincerely,
Dear Dr. Vladimir,Since the beggining of the world, the doctors have been trying to save people from their disorders. Some used knives, others used potions, but not all doctors are great and make each patient content with a hopeful cure. You're a great doctor for your knowledge is your crown and you understand your patients when they come to you. There is a light in your affectionate heart and it's full of deep kindeness that teaches us to be content with everyday life. I came to your office with uncertainty for I was scared of the outcome of my procedure. After our first meeting I knew that I found a great doctor who is not a hypocrite but more like a rare, shining and a precious pearl thath's very hard to find. I've admired your honesty and I trusted you without a doubt. You were there for me with an open heart, a warm smile and listening ears. After my surgery I discovered that you possess greate treasures. I came to see that there's a light in your touch and your hands work magic beyond the wildest imagination. Your mission is to bring out the unfamiliar from the most familiar.I widh you lots of luck, prosperity, blessings of joy and continued success. You've a Keen eye, even capable of seeing the unexpected. Nature isn't always generous to us. By your touch nature reaches out to us with welcoming arms, and bids us to enjoy her beauty. You're truly the Michelangelo among all doctors of our times. You create beauty with your own hands and people admire what you've created in faith. I thank you with a deep gratitude for your kindeness, support, your compelling modesty, and for the joy of having you as my doctor and being able to share your time with me.
Dear Dr. Vladimir Grigoryants, I have to tell you how happy I am with the surgery that you performed for me. I had my upper and lower eyelids, my nose and my neck done.It has only been 3 weeks and I am totally healed without any sign that I had surgery.Even better, every friend or family member that has seen me cannot believe how great I look now.You are unbelievably good at what you do and I have never had a doctor who spent so much time explaining everything to me and making me feel at ease. You have really good bedside manner.I am recommending you to everyone I know that would like to pursue a cosmetic procedure. Thanks again. Cordially,
Dear Dr. Vlad,I just wanted to say thank-you for all you have done for me; my surgery was such a pleasant experience for me.I saw four other physicians to make sure that I was making the right choice, and I’m so glad I went and had my surgery with you.I wanted to enhance my look without making everyone look at my chest first! I wanted what all women want, to have the perfect size and shape. That is just what I got!!!!!!My mother was very concerned with this too, and she was made very comfortable when she came in on the day of my procedure.Your manager, Gus put her at ease from the start, and I felt very comfortable with the staff in the Operating room, everyone really showed concern and that really made me feel safe.I wonder if all plastic surgeons are like you, you seemed to really care for me as a person and not just a patient, not just a paycheck; I would have paid a lot more because of the way I was treated in your care.So I will just say thanks-you, and a big Kiss and hug!
Dear Dr. Vladimir,I had a mini neck lift. I could not believe my eyes when you printed out the before and after photos, I can not believe that was my turkey neck! The results are beyond my expectations…..I really have no words to thank you.When we discussed the surgery I was put at ease, I trusted your judgment, and you gave me no false hopes for the outcome, you told me about the complications, and what I would need to do to recover. I had very little discomfort, and today feel no pain at all. I felt secure and in a very safe environment, and that really means a lot to someone that has never had plastic surgery.Well I just wanted to say a BIG thank you.
Dear Dr. Vladimir Grigoryants,I don't have much words to tell you how happy and amazed I am the way you made my nose beautiful, and straight. I am really excited by waiting to see the final result, after my swelling gets down. You have golden magic hands, which helps and changes the person's self esteem on one day. I am honestly really appreciated by your work. Not only you changed the beauty of my face, but also you helped me to improve my health by making my nose wall straight to breath better. I am very happy that I made the best decision of trusting you to do my rhynoplasty.I wish you all the best, and may God be always with you. You are very nice and helpful doctor, who really takes good care of his patients.Best wishes to you,
Dear Dr. Vladimir Grigoryants,Thank you for the job well done on my nose. I feel very fortunate to have found your practice because truly, I was taken care of in great hands. Rhinoplasty was something I wanted for a long time, but I was very intimidated by the procedure and wasn’t sure if I could trust anyone enough to pursue it.When I met you for the first time, you made me feel so unbelievably comfortable that I didn’t feel the need to even see another doctor. What I liked most about you is that you gave me a legitimate idea of the amazing work that you do, by giving me the opportunity to see many before and after photos of the noses you have done.I love the fact that my nose looks completely natural. I’m very glad that you were the one that performed surgery on my nose. You are a wonderful artist and you have a remarkable talent.. You have a good eye for aesthetics. I admire you so much for committing your life to medicine and changing the lives of many. I appreciate your kindness, patience and care. Thank you. Sincerely,
Dear Dr. Grigoryants,I wanted to drop a note to thank you once again for your wonderful work, dedication, kindnesss, and consideration.To be honest, I consulted 23 Doctors here in LA! By looking at the excellent results of your previous work, and especially your taking the time to really consider my perspective. I immedeately realized you would without a doubt be the best choice for me.Thank you! You are not only an excellent doctor with a strong work ethic, but also a wonderfull person with the treatment of your patients and otherwise.I look forward to potentially working with you again in the future!Warm regards,P.S. Lots of referrals for you are already given by my mom and I.
I've been going to Dr. Grigoryants for about 3 years and have had 3 surgeries on my nose, breasts, and ears. I initially went to him because I was recommended by my neighbor and later my hair stylist. Now everywhere I go I meet people that he did surgery on. I cannot look at my photos before surgery. I am scared to see how I used to look. I never looked as good as I do now after my surgeries. I have recommended Dr Grigoryants to many people. His bed side manners are excellent but most importantly his skills as a surgeon are the best.
Best Dr's award from me till my next procedure in the future what ever that might be, have a great year and wishing you tons of success!!!!!! Thank you Dr Grigoryants7.1.2013

Dr. GrigoryantsI had rhinoplasty and breast augmentation surgery with you back on December 29, 2015. I meant to do a 4 month follow-up but never got around to it. I am now 15 months post-op and I am extremely pleased with my results. I loved my nose the moment the cast came off and have loved it throughout this entire process. I just wanted to update you with pictures so you can see the progress. This has been a very good experience for me and has dramatically increased my self esteem and confidence. I know rhinoplasty is a difficult procedure and I feel blessed that I found a very capable surgeon who did an excellent job. I wanted to thank you for making this a good experience instead of a traumatic one.Thank you, 3.18.2017
Dr Grigoryants is a true artist. He is meticulous in detail and has an incredible eye when looking at his patients and knowing what will compliment them the best. He is humble beyond words and that is why I wanted to share with you how talented he really is.
Hi everyone! Hope You are having a great week so far! So I want to give you little update on the whole nose situation!!!My surgery went amazingly well, and I really wasn't all that nervous. Although I did have some last-minute fears about letting go of my old nose. Hehe! So I reached out to my sisters, Kathy and Kyle, before I made the big step that morning! After carefully considering and being well aware of my sobriety, Dr. Grigoryants and I (along with my other doctor) moved forward with my surgery!I love my doctor. He made this a great experience for me! As for me, I felt quite reassured when I saw him that morning rested and happy. His surgery room was clean, haha! And the people he had working with him made feel safe. All in all, it was a great experience!
