SkinPen Micro-Needling – Dr. Chen and her staff deserve 5 stars!

5 5 Star Rating - Written on August 18, 2017

I have been looking for the right scar revision Plastic Surgeon for years. Being an Asian woman, is not easy when it comes to our skin because our skin scars easily. I had five children that caused stretch marks on my lower abdomen, inner and outer thighs. Additionally, as a child I love climbing up trees and like to play with knives, cut twigs and other things, and cut myself too. Then on my late twenties, I had tattoos behind my left thigh that as I got older, I did not like it any more. I decided to have it surgically removed, but the doctor did not close incision the correctly. It a formed nasty keloid scar which looks ugly. I was very particular in picking a plastic surgeon who will understand my skin type. Here in California there are many Plastic Surgeons to choose from. I search and searched, every Surgeon I found seemed very knowledgeable, and had very good reviews. However, I still did not feel that they will give me the satisfactory results to my stretch marks and scars issues. Then, I came across Dr. Joyce Chen’s website. I read her reviews, and they were very good. Not only she is Asian herself; she seems to have more knowledge to the Asian people skin type. I called her office and the staffs responded promptly regarding my inquiries. They told me to come in for a free consultation, so I made an appointment right away. When I arrive at The Pacific Plastic Surgery’s office on the day of my appointment, the staffs and Dr. Chen are very professional, courteous, and caring. I am so happy with the results regarding my stretch marks and scars. I did the three treatments and it made it looks so much better. I am so glad that I have found the Pacific Plastic Surgery Institute PC. All my experience with them is positive. There are no words to describe how grateful I am that I have found the Pacific Plastic Surgery Institute, PC. Thank you so much Dr. Chen and to your staffs for helping bring up my self-esteem. Dr. Chen and her staffs deserve five stars ratings for all their services. I highly recommend Dr. Chen as a Plastic Surgeon. She is the best.

Emergency Ear Surgery with Outstanding Results…

5 5 Star Rating - Written on July 12, 2017

I was at the emergency room of Hoag Hospital, Irvine, CA. where I was treated by Dr. Joyce Chen with outstanding results. I had accidentally fallen out of bed and sustained major damage to my left ear and had to get to DC the next day for my nephew’s military retirement send-off. After my trip to Washington, DC, I made two subsequent visits to Dr Chen’s for the removal of the stitches, with very positive results. The scar is barely visible. My wife says that Dr. Chen did a very good job! I was extremely pleased with all the emergency procedures and follow up visits!

I couldn’t say enough good things about Dr. Joyce Chen and would recommend her to anyone.

I have thought about getting liposuction for years and could never pull the trigger. No matter how much weight I lost, I struggled with knees, that looked like bowling balls from multiple injuries, and saddlebags on my outer thighs. I did some extensive research to find a doctor I felt I would be comfortable with and that had excellent reviews. I found Dr. Joyce Chen, who is amazing!! I went to the first consultation very nervous and unsure if I would actually go ahead with it. But once I met Dr. Chen she put me at ease. She explained the procedure, answered questions, and genuinely made me feel comfortable about the liposuction. I decided I would do my upper and lower abdomen, inner and outer thighs and my knees. I had my surgery on April 3rd and not only did the surgery center follow up with me but both Dr. Chen and her staff did as well. I was unsure what to expect but when I took off the compression garment for the first time the next day after surgery and was amazed that I could actually see a difference. From many of the reviews that I read, because of the swelling they couldn’t see an improvement right away. I actually could see that my stomach was flatter and my outer thighs were smaller. Of course there was major bruising, but I did make sure that I took the Arnica as prescribed for bruising and swelling and I do believe that this could have helped some. I did take pain pills for a few days but really did not feel any pain just a twinge now and then with my thighs and knees. I had no pain at all on my outer thighs, even though they were bruised. I am on week three and am extremely happy with the results and can noticeably see a difference. After just a couple days my husband even commented that my outer thighs he could tell were smaller. Both Marcy, Dr. Chen’s Patient Care Coordinator, and Dr. Chen herself are extremely nice and genuinely seem to care about their patients. Can’t wait to see the results in the next few months for when the swelling goes down even more.

I couldn’t say enough good things about Dr. Joyce Chen and would recommend her to anyone.

Wonderful

5 5 Star Rating - Written on March 20, 2017

I needed a plastic surgeon to removing a rapidly growing mole in an area where I could be disfigured. Luckily, she made time to remove it the same day of my consultation, and removed it (including the required margins) so that there was no distortion of the surrounding area. Best news of all: no cancer!

I would recommend Dr Chen Highly to anyone.

5 5 Star Rating - Written on January 11, 2017

My experience was very pleasant from my first greeting with the office staff. It was nice to be seen within 15 minutes of my arrival. This I have found is not very common with most doctors’ offices. Dr Chen walked me through my procedure. To give you a little background, I had gone to my dermatologist to get some things checked out on my arm, then found out that they were nothing to be concerned about. However they did find two spots on my face that I was completely unaware of, one right next to my right tear duct. Dr. Mehr recommended Dr Chen to do the repair work after the carcinoma was removed. I was very nervous about all of this, Dr Chen was very honest and comforting in our consultation her bedside manner was excellent and follow up also. My face is healing very well even after a few weeks. I doubt that anyone would be able to tell that I even had any surgery on my face. I would recommend Dr Chen Highly to anyone.

Five Stars!

Liked how timely and professional her bedside manner was, which allowed the appointment to be comfortable. I would definitely recommend her to my friends. Her office was very clean, decorated in good taste. Her staff was very polite and knew what she was doing. I had Botox and Juvederm done, and the procedure in the past was a little painful. The way she applied the injections were less painful and comfortable, and I had no bruising for the first time!

Dr. Chen is an Excellent Surgeon!

5 5 Star Rating - Written on July 26, 2016

It’s been two weeks since I had my awake liposuction done to my abdomen and waist, and I am very happy with the results with what I see so far. Where I had no waistline, there is one now. My stomach area has gone down as well, and I have already lost eight inches! I’m still swollen, but I see the good results from the procedure already so I am looking forward to when the swelling goes down totally. I experienced no pain during the awake liposuction and after surgery only minimal discomfort.

Best thing I have done for myself in a long time!

5 5 Star Rating - Written on May 26, 2016

Dr. Joyce Chen was amazing! She is very personable and easy to talk to. Dr. Chen takes the time that you need with her and has great follows up. She helped me with deciding what is best for my body shape and was always professional. The surgery center in Irvine was also great. Overall my plastic surgery experience was top notch!

After 3 children and breast feeding all 3 of them for 1 year each I was left with breast that made me feel horrible. I am super happy I made the decision to get breast augmentation done. I now have more confidence and feel more like myself. It motivates me to take care of myself more. The best thing I have done for myself in a long time!

I saw Dr. Chen for breast reduction surgery. The operation was easy for me and my recuperation time was minimal…Before surgery, I had a lot of back pain and was always self-conscious of how I looked…later I feel wonderful and my self-esteem is through the roof. Through it all, I felt that Dr. Chen was available for me anytime. She is awesome!…
