Tummy Tuck

The staff was friendly and Dr. Chen was so easy to talk to.

Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Chen is a suburb artist surgeon. My double/triple chin reduction exceeded all expectations. And my eyes have opened up and don't look tired and old any more. All my friends and wife say I look 50 instead of almost 72. The icing on the cake is that his charges are very reasonable.

Face Lift

Dr. Chen is very knowledgeable. He took time to explain the procedure, he listened to my goals for outcome, and he offered options that enabled me to address all of my concerns rather than scale back. Also, I really wanted natural looking results. I am more than happy with results. Recovery was also quick and created very little disruption to my daily routine.

Breast Augmentation

Felt comfortable with doctor and nurses and made me feel less nervous of my procedure. Scheduling was easy. Information about cost and procedure was very clear and thorough.

Breast Lift

Everyone in the office and the surgical staff were friendly and made me feel safe and comfortable. Post-surgery I had very little pain. I am extremely satisfied with the outcome. [Single best thing is...] Little pain and great result.

Breast Reduction

Very, very impressed with the whole process. Super efficient, friendly staff, and didn't feel lost or confused about anything the whole time (when I was a bit unsure of things going in!). Loved the facility and cleanliness/organization, and professionalism. Can't wait to go in to have it done.

Tummy Tuck

I love the staff they are friendly and helpful. Dr. Chen always takes his time explaining things and does not rush you through it. I feel confident with my decisions when I leave his office. He is always very honest and does not recommend unneeded procedures. I have had breast augmentation in the past and was very satisfied. I do and always recommend going here.

Breast Augmentation

My consultation was for a breast augmentation but I wanted a small lift. I wasn’t sure if it was possible and after describing it to Dr. Chen he knew exactly what I needed. I appreciate how comfortable my time there was.

Face Lift

From the moment you walk in the door you were treated with respect and courtesy. The staff are efficient and friendly. Dr. Chen is down to earth, non judgmental with open communication. You can tell he’s a perfectionist.

Face Lift

It was informative and professional. Everyone in the office was very helpful and courteous.

Tummy Tuck

The staff and doctor were very helpful and knowledgeable. I wasn’t sure what procedure I wanted and they walked me through my options.

Mini Tummy Tuck

Dr. Chen and his staff are friendly, but still professional. Dr. Chen and his staff make you feel welcomed. I would highly recommend Dr. Chen for any reconstructive surgery you are seeking.

The front office staff person is warm, welcoming, kind and efficient. Dr. Chen, it goes without saying is stellar. In addition to his impressive education and expertise, he listens, is patient, and works with you to find the best and also the most pragmatic solutions. Great team!!
