Review: - Huntington Beach, CA

I'd like to share the wonderful experiences I've had with Dr. Steven Vu and his staff. Back in September 2013 I had an Abdominoplasty, Breast lift and lipo of the arms. I'm a very detailed person, I research and have a million questions, before I jump into anything. After 2 years of research and 3 consultations later, I decided Dr. Vu was the right match for me. From the minute you walk in...

An amazing Doctor! - Orange County, CA

I went to 5 doctors before deciding on Dr. Vu. His professionalism along with his compassion shines right through. He is innovative, knowledgeable and talks with you about every step of your procedure. His calm demeanor and kindness makes you so comfortable. His staff members are the same way. There is no other doctor in Southern California I would go to!! Dr. Vu is beyond excellent!

Amazing Experience !

I recently had Blepharoplasty and a Brow Lift done by Dr Vu. I went into surgery without reservation due to the sincere care I received from his staff and his explanation of the entire process and what to expect afterward. I enjoyed his attention to detail on my behalf and am so happy with the result of my surgery. I recommend Dr Vu for your surgical needs

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Awesome results!

I am so pleased with my rhinoplasty results and highly recommend Dr. Steve T. Vu. My nose was broken in 4 places which made it ugly and crooked with a bump on the bridge. It had been 12 years since I broke it and I couldn't inhale through the nose without the left nostril collapsing. Dr. Vu fixed it so I can breathe through my nose now and it is straight and symmetrical without a bump. He is...

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

A gifted surgeon

Did my research and found the best! Dr. Vu and his staff made me feel so comfortable. I went in for a face and neck lift, but did not want to look plastic. He accomplished exactly what I had hoped for. I love how natural and yet refreshed I look. He truly is gifted!

5 out of 5 stars IPL

One of the Best IPL's I've Ever Had - Huntington Beach, CA

Dr. Vu performed an IPL on my back, shoulders, arms, and hands and he was very thorough and produced a wonderful result. I've had several IPL's over the years and the two that I received from Dr. Vu were some of the best ones I've ever had. He is aggressive, but uses safe settings. I would definitely highly recommend Dr. Vu for the IPL procedure.
