Patient Testimonials for Dr. Mark Chin
"It is funny no matter how much older I got I still felt like the same person I was in my early 20's. However, as I passed a mirror it was as if someone else was looking back a me. Finally, after being asked "Are you tired? You look like it." I knew it was time to take action, the sooner the better. After careful research making sure the plastic surgeon was board certified and properly trained, I mad an appointment with Dr. Chin.
I understood surgery would not make me look 20 again but after meeting with Dr. Chin and discussing the different options available to me, I had faith that the changes would be a step in the right direction.
It's funny how we perceive ourselves. I though just a little work around the eyes would make the difference and my jawline needed a little definition. When Dr Chin explained to me the concerns I had about my eyes were indeed valid. But what I needed for the proper look was a browlift. The chin definition could best be achieved by a facelift. I had to give it some thought. This was more surgery that I had anticipated. But to get my eyes and face to balance made sense. At the consultation I was shown pictures of some of Dr. Chin's patients and noticed how natural they looked, unlike some of the people I had seen in magazines that had that "surprised look" or "too tight." I decided to go ahead and take Dr. Chin's advice. He had taken time to explain my options in detail and I felt very comfortable with him.
On the day of the surgery I was nervous but Dr. Chin and the staff were very reassuring. Everything was so confidential. The operating room was AAAHC accredited and on site. One of the concerns I had was anesthesia. But everyone was wonderful. Everything went just as planned.
The recovery was pretty much as expected except that I really thought there would be more pain. I was back to work in about 10 days. I am so delighted with the results. My family, friends, and co-workers have all commented on how rested and happy I look. Looking in the mirror now is a lot more fun.
It has been 2 years since my surgery and many of my friends and family have become patients of Dr. Chin. I am always happy to refer someone to Dr. Chin knowing they will be taken care of just as well as I was."
For years Iíd lived with small breasts, only having fuller breasts when breastfeeding my two children. I felt my confidence would he greater if I had larger breasts to balance out my figure.
Upon my consultation with Dr. Chin, I immediately knew I wanted breast augmentation and he was definitely going to be the doctor to do it. During my appointment, I viewed before and after photos of other patients who had had breast augmentation and also tried on different sizes of implants.
My surgery and recovery went very well with no problems or complications. The first two days were the toughest. I was in a good amount of discomfort, but nothing that was intolerable, especially while taking painkillers. I quit taking all my pain medication on my fourth postoperative day. I then returned to work one week after surgery. I was a little sore, but was able to do most of my regular activities. By three weeks, all of my duties and routines were back to normal. My new breasts felt like they had always been mine and were completely a part of me.
Overall, this was one of the greatest things I have ever done for myself. My confidence level was boosted higher than I had imagined. My figure is much more shapely and in proportion. Iím 5í2Ē, ll6lbs, and went from a 32B to a 34D cup size.
I owe everything to Dr. Chin and his staff for helping me through this remarkable experience.
My experience at Dr. Chinís office was very positive. I wanted to have my nose done because I felt it was too large for my face. My profile was awful. I went in for a consultation and he knew exactly what I wanted.
The decision to have my nose done was one of the best decisions I have ever made. My confidence level is so much higher. When I speak to people I no longer feel they are focused on my nose.
I am very happy with my results and wouldnít hesitate to have more cosmetic surgery in the future. I give many thanks to Dr. Chin and his staff for making this experience wonderful and would recommend his talents to anyone.
Forever a patient
If you are anything like me, youíve spent countless moments glaring at yourself in the mirror, critiquing every curve of your body. I wasnít fat, but I could definitely stand to lose a little fullness in my thighs and flanks. Thus began my adventure into liposuction.
I consulted with Dr. Chin, where I was able to view before and after photos of previous liposuction patients. Even a couple members of his staff have had the procedure and they were very helpful in sharing their experiences with me. All of my fears and concerns regarding having liposuction were put at ease. I was now eager to have surgery.
Recovering from surgery was a breeze. To be honest with you, I really didnít have any pain from the liposuction. The worst the discomfort felt, was like sore muscle pain from a hard workout. My complete result wasnít immediate, but even with the swelling following surgery, I was smaller than I was to begin with.
Itís now been almost four months since I had liposuction on my inner and outer thighs and flanks. My swelling is gone and so are the pants I wore before surgery.
