I am a 66-year-old female who was looking to have a neck-lift to improve my appearance in that area. I had consultations with three plastic surgeons before selecting Dr. Chu, who seemed more experienced, professional and more determined to obtain a positive outcome. During a pre-operative meeting he patiently explained the procedures and options and recommended adding a cheek-lift to the treatment. Naturally I had some anxiety going into the operation, but the five-hour surgery was conducted without complication or any pain during recovery, a process that Dr. Chu continues to see me through. So far I am pleased with how my neck is recovering


Almost two months since the operation and I continue to heal well. I never had any bad bruising and now only have faint discoloration near one eye. My neck is now smooth and nice. I still have some numbness around my ears, but the actual suture areas are healing well. I did go in for a follow-up exam with Dr. Chu last week and he indicated everything appeared to be doing fine. I'm supposed to see him again in two months. So far, I am very pleased with the experience. I didn't tell anyone about my procedure and when I started seeing friends a month later, no one commented that they noticed anything, except asking if I'd lost weight.

Over the years I never thought that I would need to do something about my appearance because I liked my natural look and people said I looked younger than my age. As I aged, it seemed that my neck had few wrinkles and they didn’t bother me. However, over the last few years, my neck looked older in photos and I eventually wanted to do something for it to better match my face.

I have been very pleased with Dr. Chu and his staff of knowledgeable and friendly assistants and would recommend him for anyone seeking similar procedures.
