Patient Resources

Out of Town Patients

Pacific Plastic Surgery Institute, PC treats patients from all parts of the United States and beyond. Dr. Chen’s reputation, standards of excellence, consistent results are some reasons patients travel to our institute for their plastic surgery. At the heart of Orange County, near Orange County (SNA) airport, and easy driving distance to Los Angeles(LAX), flying in for care is convenient. Our office is easy to get to via private limousine or shuttle service, or even using a Lyft service.

Our office is minutes from Irvine Spectrum Center with their wealth of restaurants and hotels nearby. We are also very close to Newport, Laguna, and Huntington Beaches and their breath-taking views, cultural activities, and ideal year round climate. Our patients and guests may choose from a wide range of hotels within a short distance from our office and surgery centers. Nearby hotels include The Huntington Beach Waterfront Hilton, The Hyatt Resort and The Ritz Carlton in Newport Beach, The Montage in Laguna Beach, and Irvine Hotel, Irvine Marriott, and DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Irvine – Spectrum in Irvine.

Private nurses can be arranged to stay with you during your recovery and to bring you to and from your postoperative visits. Alternatively, after care facilities are also closeby offering 24/7 nursing care.

A virtual consultation will be initiated online, including examination of photos and pre-screening forms. Advanced scheduling for surgery with pre-op evaluation and testing done ahead of time will streamline your office visit and allow time for you to enjoy Southern California.

We would be please to guide through your consultation and planning, providing you information on local airports, transportation, accommodations, local restaurants, attractions, and activities for you and any friends or family that may accompany you.
