I am very pleased and satisfied with the results of my surgery (Breast augmentation). I was very nervous at first about my procedure, but Dr. Chiu and his staff answered all of my questions and helped me set realistic expectations with the surgery I had decided to have. It has been 4 months and I have had no problems, with an invisible scar :). This has been one of the best experience of my life. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Chiu to my friends and family. I can’t thank you enough for everything you’ve done for me. Thank you so much for your kindness and patience, Dr. Chiu! -Nalleli Angel

Beyond Excited!! show details Beyond Excited!!
by Patricia G. on Mar 6th, 2015

I could not be happier about how wonderful my breast implant surgery went! The results are exactly (if not better) than I had hoped for. I was so scared and nervous about the pain, recovery, and how I would look afterwards. I was up and about the very next day without pain. I did not arrive at this decision easily. I struggled with my perception of public judgment and internal conflict. I am also physically active and teach yoga so I wanted a size that made me feel pretty and young yet did not get in the way of my activities. I actually went to see Dr. Chiu twice and also brought my husband with me. Dr. Chiu is patient, a true artist in his work! Together with Dr. Chiu I selected the perfect size that fits my body that looks natural without affecting my activities. I am beyond happy with the results. Dr. Gabriel has wonderful bedside manner, professional, patient, and his office staff is friendly and knowledgeable. I feel sexy, happy, and I am kicking myself for not going through the surgery sooner.

From injections to complicated surgical procedures, Dr. Chiu is The Best. show details From injections to complicated surgical procedures, Dr. Chiu is The Best.

I model next to girls half my age, and I owe it to sunscreen & Dr. Chu. I never look ‘done’, and in fact a couple of times in the 7 years that I’ve gone in for injections, he’s said that I didn’t need them yet & to come back in a month. He turned down business out of integrity for his practice and my face –which is exactly why I knew that he was the one to ‘refine’ my nose. By ‘refine’ I mean, he saved me from a botched job (both internally & externally) that I had over a decade ago –while my nose didn’t look noticeably bad from a glance, there were actually nuances that were keeping me from booking jobs. The reason I know this is because after only a month since surgery, I’m booking the same job that I didn’t book before the surgery. Finally the ultimate seal of approval –my husband was so scared to have my nose touched, but after he saw the result, has decided to have His nose done by Dr. Chu.

I am beyond thrilled with my breast implants!! Dr. Chiu was absolutely wonderful to work with. I interviewed several cosmetic surgeons and choosing Dr. Chiu was a no brainer. His bedside manner is unparalleled. In addition, he is incredibly talented. My breasts look so incredibly natural. I am complimented all the time on how great they are. I couldn't be happier!

Dr. Chiu has been my surgeon for years now. I cannot express enough how happy I am with his work. I just had my 2nd Breast augmentation by him 2 weeks ago. I decided to go a little larger. I am thrilled with my results! I have also been getting all of my injections by him for years and he is the best. He is so professional and brilliant at what he does. Pays attention to all details. I always enjoy my experience when I go into his office! His staff is so friendly, organized and very helpful! • • •

I have had Blepharplasty, Dysport and fillers. He makes me feel young again and spends lots of time with you. The office is very clean and inviting! I am thinking about a new treatment and it will only be with Dr. Chiu!

I must admit, I'm surprised how excited I am to write this review about Dr. chiu considering it involves , but I just have to let others know what an amazing experience I have just had with not only the doctor, but his whole office staff and surgery associates. In 2008 in an effort to correct my slightly tuberous breasts I went to a doctor in my hometown of Louisville Colorado. To make aLong story short I was left with an even worse issue than I had begun with. My surgery was not done properly and I was not informed until meeting doctor Chiu just how extensive of a procedure someone with my type of problems needed. The "double bubble" or stacked breasts that I ended up with was an even more devastating deformity to live with. I decided that I needed to do my research and find someone who was so exceptionally skilled in not only breast augmentation, but tubular breast deformity. I began my searhing online, reading the various medical md reviews as well as patient reviews etc. I stumbled upon an article that was the top 10 surgeons in LA. I think Doctor C was number 2... Everyone just had such wonderful things to say about this guy! Not to mention they all seemed to speak highly of his bed side manner and his office staff. I called for a consolation and was shocked and pleased when I was able to get in that month and it was a complimentary consolation!! Other doctors I had spoken to charged up to $250 for a consult! To me, that was outrageous because the whole finding a doctor and needing to ask questions was daunting enough!When I walked into the Beverly Hills plastic surgeons office it was just as I expected- gorgeous, chic, decorated to a T, yet I was greeted by the sweetest women at the desk, offered a coffee or water and was made quite comfortable. I was surprised that eve though I had somehow landed myself in a very swanky office, I was not inimidated.I found doctor C to be also equally am impressive and professional. He was very sensitive to my condition explained the process, size, and although he was sure he could fix me, he was practical about the results. He didn't promise he would make me look like a porn star which I found refreshing!As I was leaving, I then met his wife! Christine- one of the most gorgeous woman I've ever met, I'm not kidding!!! She can be very hands on in a patients journey and to me that was extremely comforting. Although her office is covered of pictures with her and her friends- most of whom you would recognize... She was so kind, down to earth and answered even more of my questions. I then went to Chammy, another beautiful girl who is the patients second connection to the doctor. She went over pricing, scheduling, before and after and even told me that after I would be recieving a gift?! ( I actually did get a nice gift basket and other amazing things I was shocked!!!!!) she was exceptional in every way, and I even bugged her via text with last minute questions and she was there for me the whole way!The hospital the dr uses is top top notch, and most importantly the annestisialogist was one of the best which eased those fears I had. My surgery went great and I recovered in about 4 days with only minimal swelling.All in all, I am more than happy with my results. My very deformed chest is now a subtle c small d and are exactly like the picture doctor chui painted for me previously.They changed my life. I am so glad that I did my research and made that consult with the doctor. I never imagined I could be normal... But now, I don't even think about my chests which I guess is the best gift ever.Please, go see him, ask millions of questions. He is happy to answer them all and he is passionate about helping you!

I had a BA with a silicone HP over a year ago. Doctor Chiu did a very good job. My breasts looked very nice.Although, I started having problems with my implants. They were too big and too heavy for me and I had constant pain in one of my breasts. So I ended up taking them out.The pain is still present, but I hope for the best.Dr. Chiu is a great doctor and has a very pleasant personality.

Six weeks ago I had reconstructive breast surgery as well as lipo in my arms with Dr. Chiu. I can't tell you how happy I am with my body! I interviewed four surgeons before going with Dr. Chiu. Two of my best friends recommended their doctors as well but after three consults with Dr. Chiu I knew that he was the one. There really was something unique about him, his office and the wonderful people that work for him was obvious to be that they were committed to making patients feel at home. My two girlfriends were really pushing their doctors on me but I didn't feel that sense of perfectionism that I felt with Dr. Chiu. In my situation, scar tissue built up in both breast and my left breast been encapsulated which means it never dropped the way it should have. I hated the way my breast looked! Prior to seeing Dr. Chiu, my breast implants were Salene and over the muscle. I now am under the muscle and have Silicone implants. I had 275 cc before and didn't want to look to busty. Dr.Chiu advised me to go to 500 or 525 but to be honest, I was scared. He advised me and reassured that it would fit my frame and I had nothing to worry about. I decided at first to go to 475cc. A week before my surgery I went back to the office to look at the bags again and to talk to Dr.Chiu about going to 500cc. Once again, he reassured me that 500 cc was a size I would be so happy with. I did go with 500cc and very much wished I had gone up to 525cc like he suggested. Either way, I love my breast! They fit my body and frame perfectly. I also had lipo done on my arms and chest. I cant express enough how Dr. Chiu is a perfectionist with what he does. Never having lipo done before or never knowing anyone personally that had it done, I was a bit nervous about it. Every time I look in the mirror and see my arms I just smile ear to ear. My arms look fabulous! His office is immaculate, his staff is generous, patient and happy and Dr. Chiu knows his work inside out. I was put into the right hands and am more than happy with my body every day. Thank you Dr. Chiu and staff for everything!
