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

Dr. Chung was incredible and I will certainly come back. The consultation was thorough and gave me a clear impression of what I would look like after the procedure. He was very honest as to what I should and should not consider among the many procedures. The end result was exactly what I wanted and is very natural.

Dr Victor Chung Has Fantastic Bedside Manner and Surgical Skills! - Boston, MA

I had never had surgery before, but Dr Chung is very professional and calming, answered all of my questions before and after surgery, and kept my husband updated while I was under anesthesia.

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. He was meticulous in his set up of the equipment and talked through each step with me. He has a gentle touch and the procedure was nearly painless. Definitely worth it!

One Hour to Go 10 Years Back

Dr. Chung had amazing bedside manner, was extremely transparent about all aspects of the procedure, is thoroughly knowledgeable on everything related to facial plastics, and did a superb job in sculpting my face.

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

Dr. Chung was terrific from start to finish. He was very patient and went through all my options from start to finish. He was great at explaining things. I had anticipated doing something drastic, but he showed me how smaller changes might give me a better result (and save me money). The procedure was smooth and the results are great. I look much more rested and naturally fresh. No bruising, no problems. I will definitely be a repeat customer if I ever want anything else done.
