5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants
Dr. Chen’s office and staff provide a comfortable, relaxing and professional environment. The Surgery Center and staff also provided a professional, comforting atmosphere. I could not wait for the bandages/gauze to fall off, although this took some time and it really tested my patience. The reason I opted to do this is because I have always wanted larger breasts. After nursing two children my breasts were very droopy and to be totally honest I have never had "perky" boobs so this was the perfect time. I had not considered a lift, only implants, but after nursing my kids, I definitely needed a lift as well. If you have ever considered breast augmentation make certain you are doing this because this is something that you desire, not to please or satisfy someone else. Like I said, this is something I have thought about for years and I wish I would have had the surgery sooner. The pros of this entire operation are that you are finally able to achieve results you had only imagined. The cons are there was some discomfort, limitation of activities and of course the healing process. It took about a month before I had full range of motion in lifting up my arms because the skin had not completely stretched from the insertion of my implants. It also took some time for my muscles to fully recover in my chest area and they were somewhat tender. I had some scabs that took a while to come off, but now that almost two months have passed the scabs are gone and the scars are starting to disappear; my breasts are looking just like I wanted and had imagined them. Trust in your physician and heed their advice. Dr. Chen is very knowledgeable and based on his medical knowledge and experience he made some good recommendations concerning the final size, my body shape and the results I wanted to attain. I wanted larger breasts but after our consult, Dr. Chen explained the some of the problems I may have if I went too large since my upper body frame is somewhat small. Overall, I am satisfied with the results we achieved and I am thankful we chose Dr. Chen.
5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
Dr Chen and his staff are absolutely wonderful! I interviewed 3 doctors for this procedure. The first one made me feel I would look like a super model and it would be all good! The next surgeon, made me feel like there is no point to having the surgery, the results would most likely not be what I want, I would still be a little "dumpy". I was so confused, I decide to try one more time, and scheduled my appoint with Dr. Chen, from the first call the office staff has been extremely friendly and helpful. Dr Chen gave me the most balanced advice. He thought I could get the results I expected from the Tummy Tuck, but he agreed with Dr #2 that the second procedure I was looking for, was not a good idea, and I wouldn't benefit from it. I felt so comfortable with Dr Chen from the moment I met him. I did not feel any pressure to schedule the surgery. He has always been very timely. When I want another procedure, it will be back to Dr Chen, without a doubt. Thank you Dr Chen and Staff for your great care!

I went to Dr. Chen after a few recommendations. The office is beautiful and comforting. Dr. Chen answered all of my questions and made me feel really comfortable with the whole surgery. My surgery was suppose to last 4-5 hours and surprisingly, I was headed home after 3 hours. Dr. Chen is great at what he does and has great bedside manner. His staff was very professional, kind and helpful. Yvette helped me through all of the paperwork and pre-op. She was wonderful, she answered emails lighting fast and was always on top of it. The surgery center staff was also very kind.

I cannot begin to say enough good about Dr. Chen. Having had other cosmetic surgeries prior, I knew what I was looking for in background and credentials. Two surgeons matched those and we proceeded to interview both. The first was like a used car salesman .... 2nd, Dr. Chen actually touched my face and explained what his procedures would do to alleviate my problems AND they all made perfect sense. We didn't even think twice, we scheduled my surgery immediately. The results were dramatic!!! I had absolutely no pain whatsoever and was thrilled with the results. A few months later I had Dr. Chen do a lip enhancement, to give me a fuller upper lip, or actually in my case, AN upper lip. It was amazing! Dr. Chen also did my late husband's upper and lower eyelids and because of my results, a friend of ours from California has since come out and had a full facelift as well. Anyone who is considering plastic surgery of any kind will not only receive top knotch treatment from Dr. Chen and his staff, but will be absolutely delighted with this work. He is BRILLIANT!

First off I would like to say I'm not one to write a review unless my experience was so terrible I need to let everyone know or so incredibly amazing I need to let everyone know if it is anywhere inbetween I don't waste my time. I'm happy to say my experience with Dr. Chen was absolutely amazing! I did my research when looking for a dr around me I researched reviews, experience, and education and dr Chen had amazing credentials so I booked an appointment for a consultation from booking the appointment to follow up I have felt so at ease with everything his staff in the office to the staff in the OR were nice and kind any questions I had for him which were few because he explained everything really well he was sure to answer them all he didn't give me any false answers or unrealistic expectations I knew exclactly what to expect when that cast came off, although I am still healing I love the results I would love to show anyone a picture if you would like you may message me for before and after photos in a private message (I do not wish to post them on the site)

Albuquerque, NM...Mommy Makeover! I'm so thankful that I Found a great Dr. and I'm happy to start this new journey of my life.
Im very happy with Dr. Chen. My first initial consultation with him was great. (He has also perfomed surgery on a few of my friends). He sat down with me and he answered all of my questions and concerns. He took measurements and had me try on sizers. I felt very comfortable with him. Knowing that he also has a Harvard background impressed me. My surgery was performed this Thursday at 7:00 am. I wore a bikini bottom so he could mark where id like the scar for my tummy tuck to be. I'm very OCD with perfection so i wanted to make sure that my scar would be in a lower, less conspicuous area. Although I was very nervous, the staff at The Surgery Center was great and made me feel very comfortable. I just remember the anesthesiologist telling me that he was going to put something in my IV to help me relax. I was out like a light and don't remember much after that point. I woke up 4 hours later very thankful that the surgery went well. I have been in a lot of pain and hunch back, due to the soreness. I'm scared of tearing open my tummy sutures. It feels like I got hit in my mid tummy area by a train; due to the muscle repair. I can't wait for my PO appt on Tuesday. I'm taking my pain meds regularly and I'm hoping to get rid of my drain pumps as soon as I see the dr. I'm so excited to see what's underneath all this gauze.

Dr. Chen is relaxed and friendly and very happy to answer questions and spend time in consultation - and was not at all pushy. I like him very much.

Dr. Chen is kind, patient, well-educated, and truly a top-notch doctor. He was voted as the BEST in his field by his fellow doctors. Plastic surgery can be scary, but Dr. Chen makes you feel comfortable and confident. His office is beautiful, and his staff is incredibly welcoming and helpful. Every visit to his office is enjoyable, and I walk out feeling great about my choices.
