5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Highly Recommended for Rhinoplasty - San Francisco, CA

I wanted to correct two imperfections in my nose: a crooked bridge (caused by childhood trauma) and a pointed tip. The procedure took 4 hours and was not painful. I had a bad sinus headache for several days, and some eye bruising. I was able to return to work after 9 days with just a minor nasal drip.

Alarplasty, Alar Base Reduction, Nasal Sill Surgery (Nostril Narrowing) - San Francisco, CA

As a 36 year old male, I would have never considered in getting any work done but that all changed when I started to notice the effects of aging especially under my eyes a few months back. I went to Dr. Chiu-Collins for fillers and Botox and luckily I never bruised and if any swelling occurred, it was very minimal. She takes her time in explaining everything in a nut shell, thoroughly answers...

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Matching the Outside with the Inside - Orange County, CA

I was a patient of Dt. Lynn Chiu-Collins when she was practicing in Orange County. As an older mother of two, I was tired of people telling me that I looked tired, particularly when I was dressed nicely with full make-up! Specifically, I didn't like my droopy eyelids, double chin, and jowels. I had never thought seriously about having a facelift because I didn't want to look like I had...

Nose Fillers - Perfectly Done - San Francisco, CA

I had Radiesse fillers set into my nose bridge and tip. I felt no pain and it was over before it began. There wasn't much swelling so I know her injection was perfectly executed. I never looked better and I'm so glad I found Dr. Chiu-Collins for this job. Next up, I've got to get her to look at my skin condition.

Gotta Love Dr. Chiu - San Francisco, CA

I had a face and neck lift with Dr. Chiu. From the first time I met her to my last visit, Dr. Chiu was wonderful. She is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of cosmetic surgery. Especially for me, I was so impressed that Dr. Chiu took such care to recognize and explain the difference of male and female facelifts. She is extremely detailed with her surgery skills; tiny stitches, and even removing facial hair follicles in order to have an even sideburns line. I know where to go whenever it's time again!

Perfect Results - San Francisco, CA

I saw Dr. Lynn Chiu-Collins last Thursday. My appointment was for an IPL treatment. While there I asked her about fillers for my nasal folds. I let her know that I am a less is more person and was afraid that it would look obvious. She carefully explained the different fillers to me and I decided to go ahead. Today is Monday, my skin is clear from the IPL treatment and my face appears fuller...
