5 out of 5 stars Non Surgical Nose Job

Excellent Experience with Non-surgical Nose Job

I went to Dr. Chung for a non-surgical rhinoplasty and it was one of the easiest trips to a doctor I've ever had! She had same-day consultation and procedure available for this particular job, saving me both time and money, considering I live a fair distance away from her office. The entire thing from consultation to the end of the procedure took maybe 2 hours. So quick! She had me feeling at...

25 Year Old Athletic Male, Minor Amounts of Fat in Lower Abdomen - San Francisco, CA

After a strict year of dieting and exercise, there was that "stubborn" tummy fat just below the belly button that would not go away. Being so young and already in great shape (nowhere near overweight), I simply was tired of struggling to reach that last 5% of my goal of a 6-pack abdomen. I went to see Dr. Chung, and her warm, reassuring attitude immediately calmed me. She explained that...

No More Bulbous Tip! I Now Have the Nose I Have Always Wanted! - San Francisco, CA

Dr. Chung is an extremely skilled surgeon. She was very thorough and patient with me, as I had lots of questions! She took great care of me before, during, and after my surgery, and I always felt there was a genuine interest in my well-being.

35 Years Old, 2 Children BF, 5'1" 115pounds 400cc Mentor Silicone HP San Francisco, CA

Dr Chung is awesome. She has excellent "bedside manner," was very thorough, and made me feel very comfortable. My husband went to the BA consultation with me and immediately approved. SInce she was my first consultation, I felt that I needed to at least have another to compare, although I was pretty sure I was going to move forward with Dr. Chung. I did have another consultation, and although the surgeon was really good, what really made me decide to move forward with Dr Chung was her responsiveness to my questions. I contacted her patient care coordinator, Whitney (who is an absolute doll), via email and sent a list of questions for Dr Chung to answer. Whitney called me the next day to schedule a phone appointment with Dr Chung who went over all of my questions and concerns. The responsiveness has been superb! I feel like I am in very good hands and will be taken very good care of. I will update this review once I have had my procedure scheduled July 2.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

To Lipo or Tummy Tuck, That is the Question. San Francisco, CA

Dr. Chung is an outstanding surgeon and a caring professional. My experience from start to finish was comfortable, informed and I knew I was in the best possible hands. I interviewed three other surgeons and none of them even examined my abdomen to determine how much muscle separation we were looking at. I'm sure that they would have figured it out eventually, but Dr. Chung took the three minutes to assess it at our first meeting and that simple action allowed me to make an informed decision between the outcomes of a tummy tuck vs. liposuction. Without something that simple, I might have made a different decision and ended up with less than satisfactory results. Both before and after my surgery, Dr. Chung was infinitely available. My surgery was on a Friday, which means that she had to come in to the office on a Saturday for my first (of many) follow-ups. She also offered to come in on a holiday weekend to check on one of my drains. All of my follow-ups were thorough, comfortable and I believe that Dr. Chung went above and beyond in the time that she spent with me. Even when I arrived early, I never waited more than five minutes to see the doctor. As for the end product, I know I made the right decision in both my surgeon and the procedure I selected. I had abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) with muscle repair and limited liposuction. I haven't dropped more than about 1/2 a size, but my clothes fit remarkably better and I have a much higher level of self-confidence. Whitney, the office manager, is stellar, too. She always knew exactly who I was when I called, was incredibly adept at organizing a surgery schedule that worked for me (and given my schedule, that was no easy task.) She has a sincere interest in making sure you feel comfortable and get everything you need at every visit (and before and after, too.) From my experience, you can't go wrong with Dr. Chung.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

A Much Need Breast Fix! San Francisco, CA

Dr. Chung is always professional but she is also warm. She took special care to ask about my concerns, address those concerns, and make sure that I understood the procedures that would take place. Her bedside manner is caring and she is quite efficient in a hospital setting. I have continued to see her on a regular basis for non-surgical procedures and she is just as efficient in this part...

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Blepharoplasty (Double Eyelid Surgery) - San Francisco, CA

In general, I was having a difficult time finding a skilled surgeon in the Bay area to do my blepharoplasty, which was necessary for medical conditions. For example, the surgeon that I found at a well known institute had not done it on someone my age before and only did the surgery once a month. I was being very specific in what I was looking for - not only did I want my medical condition...

5 out of 5 stars Juvederm

No More Pockmarks! Loving my Juvederm Results - San Francisco, CA

I had several pockmarks that had developed on my face as a result from a long battle with cystic acne. These divots and dents left my complexion looking uneven and less than desirable. I finally decided to have Dr. Chung treat the depressed areas of my face with Juvederm, and I am so thankful that I did! It's as though a magic eraser has been waved over my face. My complexion is smoother and...

5 out of 5 stars Male Breast Reduction

Male Breast Reduction for a 36 Year-old Male - San Francisco, CA

I am thrilled with the results from Dr. Chung. She has been fantastic to work with. This wasn't an easy thing to admit that I needed or say that I wanted to do. Her staff is extremely friendly and helpful. I would recommend Dr. Chung to anyone who wants a friendly, helpful Dr. that gets results you're very happy with.
