5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Highly Recommended for Rhinoplasty - San Francisco, CA

Dr. Chiu-Collins understood exactly what I wanted at my first consultation. She is very patient, attentive, and knowledgeable. She called me almost every day during my recovery, and made sure the changes I wanted were not too drastic. I am extremely pleased with the result. My nose looks exactly how I envisioned it in my head, but not so obvious that others noticed the change.

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!

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...
