About Dr. Steven J. Varkony

Steven J. Varkony, M.D., is one of Southern California’s most respected board-certified plastic surgeons. With decades of experience and a lengthy roster of satisfied patients, he has performed countless procedures covering all types of plastic surgeries – including some he invented.

Canadian by birth, Dr. Varkony began his studies at McGill University in Montreal, widely considered Canada’s finest medical school. He remained at McGill to complete his training in general surgery. Later, he performed his residency at the University’s noted plastic surgery unit, where he served as chief resident. The doctor then headed to the USA’s West Coast where he completed a plastic surgery fellowship at the University of Southern California. From that point, Dr. Varkony remained in the Greater Los Angeles area working with some of the area’s finest medical institutions and opening his own successful practice.

Currently, Dr. Varkony is on staff at the world-famous Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, in addition to serving as a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. He is noted as the inventor of several widely used plastic surgeries, including the 30-minute breast enlargement and hidden scar arm lift. With the hidden scar technique, Dr. Varkony can more effectively mask the appearance of incisions in all of his procedures, resulting in little or no visible scarring for his patients.

“Every patient deserves to be treated as an individual; in fact, it’s impossible to create good results with any other type of approach.”



What Our Patients Say About Us!

Im 3 days post op from a transaxillary subglandular BA. I look AMAZING! I never ever remotely even thought breast could look this natural, even just a few hours post op (only been 3 days). Dr Varkony is extremely skillful, confident, he made me feel super comfortable, this was my first cosmetic procedure and i was clueless... his tolerance and patience were very comforting. The results.... uff... my vocabulary its not wide enough to describe the satisfaction within me. My breast look natural, more than look, feel natural, i had no bruising, little pain, (only mostly the same day of surgery). The extraordinary work Dr Varkony performed on me is... just perfect...perfection its the only way to describe it. THANK YOU A MILLION TIMES!!!

Dr. Varkony and his staff were very, very courteous and professional. His staff went above and beyond to ensure that I was informed and comfortable. I never thought I would be someone seeking any sort of cosmetic surgery so of course I was completely skeptical about the whole process. However, Dr. Varkony was extremely patient with me and the million questions and concerns that I had. I am very pleased with the whole experience from beginning to end. Dr. Varkony knew exactly what sort of results I was after and actually went above and beyond what I had expected during the procedure to achieve those results. He truly wanted me to be a happier individual and it showed in his work as well as his character. Thank you so much to you and your staff.

I had the pleasure of having Dr Varkony perform surgery on me. He was super professional, very concerned of my needs and extremely nice. His assistant Vanessa was a sweetheart as well and made me feel very comfortable. I will definitely be going back to Dr. Varkony for whatever else I may need done in the future. I highly recommend him and his amazing staff.

Hello I just want to share my experience with doctor Steve Varkony, I got a Brest augmentation 3 weeks ago and the experience was better than expected including the nurses and assistant Vannesa they all were very attentive and helpful during the process and he is been following up after the surgery process to ensure I'm doing well and the most important part is that he takes the time to explain all the procedures since day one and he ensures that his patients fell very comfortable in every visit he answer you any questions you might have at any time. Great election I made with doctor Varkony.

I was referred to Dr Steven Varcony from Jackie at The Skin Institute for a threading procedure; he came highly recommended. After having had worked closely in this field, I quickly realized how seasoned and experienced he was after several conversations. Needless to say, I dove in quickly, for much more than had planned....A LOT MORE... and I can honestly say I am EXTREMELY happy with my results!! It's only been 2 1/2 weeks since the surgery and each day just gets better and better!! Thank Dr Varcony, you are a true master at your profession. I am anxiously looking forward to re-leaving my 30's again!
