5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery
I just wanted to share my experience at The Georgia Center. Dr. Chen performed my upper blepharoplasty and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. I never could wear eye shadow because of the excess skin on the sides of my eyes. Thanks genetics! Dr. Chen, along with his entire staff was readily available to answer all my questions before and after surgery making me feel very comfortable...

Dr. Chen has met my expectations and beyond. I am very satisfied with him and will continue to come to his office if I ever need things done on my face. Highly recommended. :)
5 out of 5 stars Revision Rhinoplasty
Dr. Chen performed my revision rhinoplasty. He is amazing! I couldn't be any happier with everything, and I feel so blessed to have had him as my surgeon. He is such a caring person and a highly experienced and qualified surgeon. I would definitely recommend to anyone and everyone for any facial surgeries. After awful results from my initial rhinoplasty, I decided to go to Dr. Chen for my much needed revision surgery. I am so happy and blessed to have found Dr. Chen that I just wanted to share my fantastic experience with others who might be in need of a revision surgery too: I visited Dr. Chen in person for my consultation. His staff was very kind and welcoming, and everything in his office and the surgical center was clean and spacious. The place has a great vibe and seemed very state-of-the-art, with iPads for patients to view before/after pictures. Dr. Chen is an extremely caring and knowledgeable person who took the time to answer all of my questions and cover every aspect of my surgery with me (and I didn't feel rushed at all). I knew I was in good hands with him and couldn't wait for my revision surgery. Dr. Chen also has amazing bedside manners and genuinely cares about his patients. He was even kind enough to stop by to visit me today, which is especially considerate for him to do on the weekends when he is off work. He even came by a second time to bring me some q-tips and ointment for my nose. I am so grateful for his care and am really happy to have him as my surgeon. (My previous surgeon sent me a mass forwarded email as part of his post-op routine, so for Dr. Chen to actually come visit me shows a huge difference in the extent and quality of care). Honestly, I don't think I could have picked a better or more qualified surgeon for my nose. Dr. Chen is so intelligible, has so much experience, and has this amazing ability to calmly convey everything to the patient that I felt 100% during this entire process. Neither he nor anyone in his staff did anything that made me question their abilities (unlike my previous surgeon Salzhauer who had an anesthesiologist stab me 4 times trying to find a vein for the IV, and his assistant tried to "upsell" a last-minute chin implant to me before the surgery). I am so happy with everything so far, and I can't wait to see my results when the splint comes off my nose. (I will be sure to post pictures). I would highly recommend Dr. Chen to anyone and everyone looking for a facial plastic surgeon, and I personally wouldn't trust anyone else with my face. I would also advise against anyone considering Dr. Salzhauer for a rhinoplasty because I ended up leaving his office with more problems than I ever thought possible. My only regret now is not having gone with Dr. Chen for my first rhinoplasty. Dr. Chen was actually my first-choice surgeon for my initial rhinoplasty, but I didn't have enough money at the time to afford the surgery with him... So I ended up going to Dr. Salzhauer who offers very cheap rates but ruined my nose. I have since learned from my mistake, and my advice to others who are interested in a rhinoplasty, or any type of surgery for that matter, is to wait until you can afford a quality surgeon before going through with the procedure. You will definitely save yourself more money in the long run. I hope my story will help guide others with their surgical decisions, and I also hope that anyone else looking for a revision surgeon will consider Dr. Chen because he is honestly an amazing doctor and I highly recommend him!

Dr. Chen is the only surgeon I would ever trust. I made the trip from up North and in addition to seeing the beautiful state of Georgia, I had an amazing professional state of the art surgeon work on my face. The anethesiologist was also amazing. I woke up calm without any nausea or discomfort. I love my results and people tell me I look younger, but they can't figure out why.:-) This is one...

5 out of 5 stars Mini Lift
I travelled from the midwest to see Dr. Chen. I did lots of research before I chose Dr. Chen. The prices might be a little higher but it is worth it. Dr. Chen is experienced, knowledgeable, and well respected by other doctors. Dr. Chen and his staff are so kind and caring. The nurses are also so nice. Not only did they drive me from the facility to my hotel, but Dr. Chen came to visit me...
