Dr. Chung is the Best! - San Diego, CA

I decided to give Dr. Chung a try since he was new to the area and his credentials seemed top notch. I can tell you that he was the epitome of professional and did an outstanding job. I had a few procedures and he talked me through all of them and advised as to what would be best for me. Can't go wrong with him!

34 Yo Male Professional for a Tune Up - San Diego, CA

I wanted to look a bit younger but maintain a natural look that didn't change my apprearance. I'm very happy with the result which makes me look much younger. The recovery was very quick and the procedure involved minimal discomfort. I can't believe I waited this long to do it. I have used underwhelming eye cream for years and this was finally the solution I needed.

Tired Physician Needing a Pick-me-up - Chapel Hill, NC

Dr. Chung was talented, charismatic and a perfect professional. He discussed the entire procedure and addressed all my concerns.

Late 20s, Preventative Wrinkles! - Chicago, IL

Pros: quick, no downtime, excellent results Cons: none The facility was spotless and the staff was attentive. Dr. Chung discussed all my options with me and offered a great plan.

One Hour to Go 10 Years Back

I am blown away by my entire experience with Dr. Chung. I've looked at medspas everywhere but specifically wanted a facial expert (not RN, PA, or other MD) who could make me look like myself again. From the beautiful office to his thorough consultation, I felt like I was (literally) in good hands. Even though I'm vigilant about my skincare, the first year of motherhood took away some of my...

30 Year Old Needing Skin Rejuvanation and Pre-care - San Diego, CA

I wanted an unbiased analysis from Dr. Chung regarding the aging of my face and advice on repairs and preventative measure. He performed the 3D Vectra computer simulation, which involved taken dozens of photos of my face from various angles and created a 3D model of my face and skin. Using this he was able to analyze the condition of my facial muscles, my skin, and the surface of my skin. ...

31 Female, Light Skin, Minimal Care Routine - San Diego, CA

I've never been great at keeping up with a skincare regime and was starting to notice wrinkles beneath my eyes and at the corners of my mouth. Dr. Chung gave me a very thorough consultation, answered all of my many questions, and ended up giving me a small amount of filler, which was the right choice.

Personal Statement

I've chosen to devote my practice strictly to facial plastic surgery. My education and training have focused exclusively on the structure of the head and neck, so I understand the interplay of beauty and function. I believe in creating a patient-relationship and taking care of my patients for life.
