Dr. Willian Chen is the best. He is so honest and tell me what I need and what I don't need to be done. He took his time on my surgery and he made my eyes look prettier. I felt so happy after surgery like a new person. I really satisfied and appreciated his work. Thumb up. Thank you so much Dr. Chen.
I had my double eyelid revision surgery with Dr. Chen in the middle of 2015 to correct my previous one performed by another doctor. Revision surgery is much much much more difficult than the double eyelid surgery and my case is even more complicated. Dr. Chen did a great job. He carefully lowered and loosened my previous high and tight crease. I had a desired result when finished. Now after two years, my eyes look more and more natural. Speaking of Dr. Chen, he is a very professional doctor. He has lots of publications and is more like a professor. His experience and skills are undoubted. I really regret that I didn’t have my first surgery done by him. He is also a very responsible doctor. He keeps updating with patients and responds to questions very patiently and promptly. He is a reliable doctor!
Dr. Chen was recommended to me by another doctor I had a consult with. At that point, I had already had consults with a couple of other doctors and I felt I wouldn't find the right doctor-someone who knew what he was doing, was willing to do it to help me out, and not oversell. I was pleasantly surprised that Dr. Chen was that right doctor for me.
Before I was pregnant my right eyelid would droop intermittently for 1-2 weeks at a time accompanied with a headache- started about 4 years ago. But 3 months into my pregnancy, I completely lost the fold on my right lid. Left side was still normal. I saw 4 different Dr before I chose Dr Chen. About 9 months post partum I decided to have my right eyelid fixed. Dr Chen came highly recommended by another ophthalmologist and many other ophthalmologists have heard of him. After the surgery, I have regained my confidence and no longer suffer from migraines/headaches. Who knows if it was related or not? But all I know is that I no longer have the headaches! I am very happy with the results. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to get bleph. Very caring and good bedside manner. He even called to follow up with me on a weekend!
