Breast Augmentation

Dr. Chen explained everything very well. I had actually came to him in 2016 about doing a couple of procedures and ended up pregnant with my 4th child. Came back in 2021 I ended up getting breast lift, with implants, liposuction and tummy tuck. I felt comfortable in the office. The girls were also awesome. My surgery went so well and so did my recovery. It's been about 7 weeks and I feel great. My family complimented me on what a great job he did. I am so glad I came to him. I am looking to get more procedures done in the future and I will be coming back to Dr. Chen. He is very nice and knows what he is doing. Thank you so much Dr. Chen and his staff. You all are super awesome!!!
