First off, you should post YOUR pics, for an honest assessment.
Vartanian is young and claims to be an expert at many, many procedures (red flag IMHO).
Yes, fake posters and promoters with personal agendas are rampant, more now than ever.

Yes, I definitely want a surgeon with a good deal of procedures under his belt, but I don't subscribe to the theory that young is a bad thing for a medical provider. I think you can build an argument that goes either way (Is the young doctor not experienced enough? Does the older doctor embrace the new techniques and is he/she keeping educated?)
There are incompetent well-seasoned surgeons out there, just as there is brilliance straight out of residency, and my hunch is that age doesn't have a thing to do with it. I think its important for us to evaluate each doc on their individual merits, experiences and accomplishments and find who is a right fit for each of us....personally.
I had breast cancer and a mastectomy in the past, and for almost 20 years I was told that I couldn't be reconstructed by the veteran docs. Enter a fresh-scrubbed young surgeon, new to private practice. He worked wonders and did what all the other docs said wasn't possible. I'm so glad I didn't let his age taint my decision to move forward. I couldn't be happier with the results.
I've done a little research on Vartanian.....I've reviewed his before and after photos, spoken with his staff, asked about his pricing, checked his medical license and board certification---so far, so good! I have to say, I'm genuinely looking forward to my upcoming consultation him.
