When considering something as personal and important as cosmetic surgery you must first find a doctor in whom you have total trust and confidence. I had been referred to the Cosmetic Surgery Institute in Palm Desert after having been to several consultations at various other facilities. From the moment I met with Dr. Zakhireh I knew that I had found the man, the facility, and the support staff to put me at ease and allow me to trust completely in my cosmetic surgery experience. Dr. Mo, as he is known by staff and clients, sets a tone of complete confidence and trust. The staff is professional and caring. Dr. Mo educates his clients on the process and procedures that will be performed and gives you a complete picture of what to realistically expect from the initial procedure through recovery and aftercare all the way to the conclusion of your cosmetic surgery experience. That experience is an ongoing process during which your body will change for up to one year after the procedure, something that Dr. Mo is careful to make his clients aware of. There were no surprises. Dr. Mo always puts the client's safety first.

I would highly and without reservation recommend Dr. Zakhireh and his staff to anyone considering cosmetic surgery. Dr. Mo took the me I was and showed me how to be the best me I could be. That is the best way to describe my experience with Dr. Mo and the staff of the Cosmetic Surgery Institute.

I wanted to thank you for the great experience I encountered before during and after my surgery. I am so excited about the results from my surgery and continue to see new results every day. Your team at CSI is amazing, the staff is friendly and makes you feel right at home. I will continue to refer everyone I know!

It will be my one-year anniversary on the 13th of this month, having my neck and chin surgically reconstructed...I love the way it looks and just wanted you to know how happy I am. Hope you and your staff are well. Thank you once again for giving me something I've wanted for years.

P.S. Everyone asks me where I got my new look from.

Dear Doctor Zakhireh,

I wanted to express my sincere thanks for your kindness and professionalism before, during and after my procedure. I am soooo happy with my results!! I still look like me, only better! Many friends have commented on how "rested" and "happy" I look. This was the natural look I was hoping to achieve!!

I'd also like to compliment you on your wonderful staff. They were so comforting during my healing process. It's obvious that they love their work.

When and if the need arises for future procedures, you will be the ONLY one I call!

I want to tell all future, potential clients: this is the best place to have any plastic surgery done! I am 61 years old, have had several procedures done, and most recently a face lift on May 24. I am so happy with Dr. Zakhireh. I trust him completely. What a great human being and a great man. You'd be so lucky to have him work on you!

The entire staff becomes like your own family. Becky, Peggy, Judy, all are the absolute best! Not only will you get a good job here, you'll actually have a good time.

Dear Dr. Zakhireh:

Thank you for a wonderful experience with plastic surgery. Your skills and ability to turn dreams into reality are outstanding. You and your staff are examples of what the practice of medicine and patient care should be. I am pleased with the results of my surgeries. I wish you knew all of the joy that you have brought to my heart. Thanks to you, I am going to start wearing dresses again....after 10 years!

Dear Dr. Mo:

I can't even begin to thank you for what you have done for me. I've never met a doctor with the kind of compassion you have for your patients. You truly are "blessed" with a "God-given" talent. A big "thanks" to all of your staff. They are all wonderful. They also have a talent for making people feel comfortable and at ease. My life will never be the same. I will always be thankful to all of you at CSI.
