I saw Dr. Chan for Asian eyelid surgery. I had a minimally noticeable crease that I could enhance with special eyelid tape. I wanted something permanent, but subtle. I found Dr. Chan on the internet, and after doing research, called to make an appointment. His online reviews were great, but from the moment I called, to the moment I met Dr. Chan, the experience far exceeded what I expected. My only concern initially was that I did not see a lot of photos of eyelids like mine. However, Dr. Chan showed me many more when I met with him. Apparently many people decline to share there photos online. The procedure was almost painless, and the recovery was a breeze. The results are amazing and I have no scars. Dr. Chan is a kind, and compassionate doctor. His artistic skills are extraordinary and he explains everything in a very no-nonsense way. I highly recommend him and will be going back for botox, fillers, and lasers.

I've had Dr Chan as an ENT doing a tonsillectomy and now also doing the costmetic side with Botox. For both procedures, very pleased with Dr Chan's bedside manner and compassion; very happy with both results as well.

As a breast cancer survivor who had bilateral mastectomies with multiple attempts at reconstruction, I have seen way more plastic surgeons than I ever wanted. Dr. Chan is outstanding. Not only are his clinical and surgical skills (read: results) over the top, check out where he went to school and did his residency. Dr. Chan has also done reconstructive work on Iraqi vets. He did procedures for friends of mine and they looked so beautiful. His bedside manner is what you rarely see, even with good surgeons. He is humble, patient, and brilliantly unassuming. I never felt rushed or like I was in a "plastic surgery mill". He only does head and neck so is very specialized. As a medical professional myself, I know this means you just get better and better. Any questions I had before or after procedures were met with true concern. He gave me his cell phone number to call day or night if I had a question! This is my guy. I will never use another plastic surgeon in Oregon unless it is for something other than head and neck; even then I would only go to someone Dr. Chan recommended. Bottom line, yesterday I ran into an old friend who said, ""Wow! You look 10....no, 20 years younger!"

I was looking for a face and neck lift but wanted something natural. Dr. Chan came highly recommended and upon meeting him, I felt very comfortable. He answered all my questions. I initially did not schedule right away because I was travelling. I called his office about 1 month before scheduling. His office staff is great, especially Yvonne. They helped get everything scheduled and in fact I was travelling up to the date of surgery. I had plenty of confidence in Dr. Chan. The surgery went well and I was comfortable throughout the procedure. I healed very quickly and within 1 month, my scars were completely gone. I look very natural and as a guy, I didn’t want my surgery to look too obvious. However, Dr. Chan did such a great job that although I notice the improvement, others think I lost weight which is exactly what I was hoping to achieve. I would recommend Dr. Chan for any facial cosmetic procedure.

I too have had procedures by Dr Chan and they have turned out beautifully! I have been nothing but pleased with the results. Part of these procedures included injectable's and I have no lumps, but perfectly smoothed out skin. In fact, within the last 60 days I have been told that I appear to be aging in reverse - by people that have no idea that I went to see a plastic surgeon. (that is a HUGE compliment!) I was deeply concerned about marionatte lines around my mouth, that were pretty intense. The procedures that Dr. Chan recommended (and carried out) have all but erased the lines completely. Dr. Chan and his assistants have been incredibly friendly, curtious and helpful. I am still a very willing participant in any new refreshing facial treatment that they may have to offer and would recommend Dr. Chan to anybody interested in improving their facial appearance. Kudos to Yvonne and Kayla as well! Thanks for the wonderful service and the new, younger me!

I had two treatments at Reviance. Both occurred on the same day, lower eye lid surgery and a filler injection. Before electing to allow Dr. Chan to operate on my face, I interviewed four other surgeons. I choose Dr Chan because he was the most informative surgeon I had the pleasure of meeting, his staff was warm, friendly and professional plus I never felt rushed with my (many) questions. From the very beginning to my end results, I was totally impressed with the concern and attention given to me by Reviance. The office manager/care coordinator was extremely attentive, she made me feel very important and well cared for. The office staff always smiles and warmly welcomes you in the waiting room. Dr Chan is highly skilled and an excellent surgeon. Although Reviance is not on the lower end of the price scale, nor close to my home, I am very glad I choose to book with Dr. Chan. I would highly recommend Dr Chan and the team at Reviance for any one considering plastic elective surgery. I can not speak highly enough of my experience. Marcus D (aka Tyler) Beaverton

Did my research and miraculously found Dr Chan, a double-board certified Facial Plastic Surgeon, who worked with PermaLip (lip implants) As with any surgical procedure (even worse, in your face) I was on the fence. Until I had the pleasure to talk to Ivonne, who is the business manager of Reviance (Dr Chan s clinic) and after a 45 min phone conversation I went ahead and schedule my consultation. Rest is history. So happy about the results!!!

I chose Dr. Chan because I saw him on Fox 12, a Portland TV station, and liked his manner and the fact that he is a double-board certified plastic surgeon. I would highly recommend him to my friends and family and would also go back for his services in the future.

I originally saw Dr. Chan for consultation regarding reconstructive surgery after removal of a facial basil cell cancer. Dr. Chan is noted in his field for being an extremely knowledgeable and skilled surgeon and came highly recommended by a local ENT Physician. Dr. Chan's sensitivity to my concerns and goals enabled me to speak with him candidly and without embarrassment. Dr. Chan explained options thoroughly and displayed much patience in answering my questions and concerns. I opted for the facelift procedure. He clearly described what results I could reasonably expect. After visiting at length with Dr. Chan I felt confident that he was the right choice for my surgeon. I considered his education and training (Double Board Certified), experience, skill, dedication and passion for his work. I knew also that he is actively involvement in research dedicated to developing bio engineered tissue for use in plastic and reconstructive surgery..impressive! One thing really stood out for me – it was his sincere and caring nature. Choosing Dr. Chan resulted in my obtaining excellent results and the highest quality of care during my procedure and follow up. Yes, I am extremely happy with the results of my facelift procedure and that I chose Dr. Chan as my Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon. I believe you will be also!

Doctor James chan definitely deserves a five star! He is always direct and punctual and effective. I cant say enough great things about Dr. Chan. He is excellent at what he does. His staff are friendly and they all make you feel comfortably and would recommend his staff and his services without hesitation, to anyone and everyone. Hands down, Dr.James Chan is the best surgeon I've ever encountered and I've had procedures done elsewhere but now that I know dr.chan exists, I will continue always going to him. I just want to thank you dr. Chan and staff for making me feel beautiful again!

I was recommended by several friends who have seen Dr. Chan previously. I am forever grateful to Dr. Chan and his staff. The process was easy, and he is the kindest, most compassionate and caring doctor.

I was recommended by another doctor because Dr. Chan is a facial specialist. I had a facelit with Dr. Chan 3 years ago. I was nervous, and unsure if I was doing the right thing. After I met Dr. Chan, I just had a great feeling about it. He explained the procedure, and what to expect afterwards. And the result is everything I was hoping for. I feel I now look as young as I feel! Thanks Dr. Chan!

Facial volume loss Deep folds such as the “parenthesis” that develop around the mouth and nose are best treated with dermal fillers (gel-like materials that are safe to use in the skin). There are many types of dermal fillers—Juvéderm and Restylane are among the most commonly used. Dermal fillers are effective at lifting deep folds and filling deep furrows. They can also be used to replenish mid-face volume loss by restoring volume in the cheek areas.
Skin texture Fine wrinkles are found under the eyes, and over the cheeks. These wrinkles develop as a result of textural changes in the skin from loss of collagen (a natural building block in the skin). As the skin ages and takes on sun damage, collagen depletion occurs. Lasers are most effective to treat these fine wrinkles and rejuvenate the skin. Laser resurfacing works by taking away damaged skin on the surface and renewing collagen. Dynamic wrinkles are wrinkles that develop...

While nothing can halt this progression aesthetic procedures can ‘set back the clock’ and drastically improving...
