5 out of 5 stars Brazilian Butt Lift

25 Years Old, & Self-conscious About my Behind - New York, NY

He is very professional, caring and has tons of experience(very knowledgeable). Dr. Chia took his time to make sure he was able to give me the result I longed for. I knew from the beginning that he was the right guy for the job. I couldn't be more happy with my results. And not to mention the pricing was right up my alley. I would definitely recommend Dr.Chia to everyone.

5 out of 5 stars Butt Augmentation

36, 3 Kids, and Wanted and Needed my Sexy Back - New York

Unlike many other offices where they have consultants speak to you Dr. Chia actually sat down with me and spoke to me and made sure that I understood every procedure that was going to be done and the before during and after care. Due to a skin condition that I have, my skin keloids. I wanted to get many other procedures done and he told me he would not do them because his job was to ensure that I looked good, not just do the surgery and get his money. That statement amongst many other things spoken about convinced me that Dr. Chia was genuine and passionate about his work and he was the one ! Once the procedure was done he explained everything to my 20 year old daughter who accompanied me and set up a follow up appointment. I couldn't be happier w. My results ! Thank you so much Dr. Chia.

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

33 Years Old Female with 1 Child, Lipo (Flanks) New York, NY

Dr. Chia is very knowledgable and extremely professional. He answered all my questions and made me feel comfortable from the start. I don't regret my decision at all. As a matter of fact I came back and got a second procedure. The staff are wonderful and accommodating. The office is very modern and clean.

5 out of 5 stars Smart Lipo

28 Years Old Single - New York

Dr. Christopher Chia Is a real deal! I had a lipo before with another doctor and I left with uneven ugly skin with still existing fat under, so I decided to have a smartlipo. Whole process with doctor and his stuff went pleasant , Dr.Christopher Chia is a professional, he patiently listens all your concerns and does a great job, he really cares about the result of the procedure. Follow ups are...

5 out of 5 stars Smart Lipo

39 Year Old Male, Great Body Build, Needed Smart Lipo to Get 6-pack - New York, NY

Dr. Christopher T. Chia was absolutely fabulous. He and his entire staff were so great and made me feel welcome and comfortable. Before I went to Dr. Christopher T. Chia I consulted with two different plastic surgeons, one in Maryland and one in NYC. However, I was not so confident in them. Dr. Christopher T. Chia told me blunt truth, he didn't promise anything he could not deliver. He was very polite, and look at me, and did not talk to me about how it went for others. He focused on me, and told me what I should expect and how my skin, body, and overall look would be impacted. I am for ever thankful to Dr. Christopher T. Chia. He made me more happy and more satisfied with my looks. I had a great body and muscles, but I wanted to have flat stomach and possibly 6-packs, and he made that happen. Now when I go to the gym I feel so much more motivated than ever before. I go that extra step because I see the difference. I definitely recommend Dr. Christopher T. Chia and his staff to my friends and anyone who would like to improve their look. Do not wait, don't hesitate, and don't regret later.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

43 Years Old, in Great Shape but Some Things You Can't Fix at the Gym! - New York

I went to Dr. Chia for a breast lift in 2012 as I was not happy with the way my breasts looked at 43. I exercise regularly and eat well, but could not achieve the look that I wanted without surgery. Dr. Chia advised me that a lift would be more attractive with implants, given the way that the shape of the breast changes with the surgery. I went with Dr. Chia's advice and more than 2 years...

5 out of 5 stars Chin Liposuction

49 Year Old Career Woman with 3 Kids - New York, NY

Dr. Chia was awesome from the pre-treatment consultation to the post care! He was gentle, kind, and patient.. i was told that he has been playing the electric guitar since college - it tells you how dexterous he is and i believe that it is a very important quality of a surgeon, especially a plastic surgeon. i am extremely happy with the result, i highly highly recommend Dr. Chia! the entire staff was very wonderful.

Chin, Upper and Lower Abs - Midlife Maintenance

Once confirming and meeting with board certified plastic surgeons, I ultimately went with my gut in choosing my doctor. I had no personal references to consider, no one I know has had this done.

5 out of 5 stars Abdominal Etching

Great patient education and counseling!

Dr. Chia provided thorough information related too the procedures that I was interested in (i.e., abs and flanks sculpting). He even offered scientific literature as an additional source of information. I never felt like I was rushed to make a decision. He also offered alternative to getting surgery, so I felt as though he wasn't just trying to make a quick sale. I ultimately decided to get...

5 out of 5 stars Laser Liposuction

Laser Lipo - Flanks and Inner/outer Thighs

He has a great bedside manner, is a perfectionist and I love my results. Being in my mid-40's and losing the fight with gravity, I am sure I will be returning to Dr. Chia again.
