There is nothing scarier than conveying your ideas to someone through simply words and pictures, then trusting them completely with PERMANANTLY altering your appearance and trusting them completely with your safety, well-being and your life. But one consultation with Dr. Chiu, and ALL your anxities will be at ease. I went to BPHS, the office operated solely by Dr. Chiu and his administrative team (Chammy <3 Suzie <3 His lovely wife Christine <3), at the begininning of March 2012 for a consulation for a breast augmentation at the recommendation of my best friend who had done her augmentation with Dr. Chiu. She actually had her procedure documented and is the first person you see on video during your consultation. Her results were tremendous, they gave her an utter air of distinction. I WANTED that. I went in with very little idea of what I wanted, more to just get a basic idea of what the procedure was like, cost, and to see what all the hype about Dr. Chiu was. After all, he had not only worked on my best friend, but her 2 older sisters as well.

So there I was, 24 years old, 5'5", roughly 165 lbs. with my 36 full B-small C breast, mother to one, in a BEAUTIFUL office in the heart of Beverly Hills, being tended to by Suzie, the beautiful, friendly receptionist and Chammy, the gorgeous, most-accomodating patient-care manager. They make you feel welcome, special and beautiful, even prior to ANY procedure. At first I was a little thrown off by such amazing attention, and to be honest, even put off a bit, but this is their genuine attitude. They aim to please, and help, and once again please! And Dr. Chiu, so professional and comforting and down-to-earth all in one. No air of arrogance that you would expect from such an acclaimed and succesful plastic surgeon. He took his time, answered every question, erased any doubt and left me in absolute awe. I went in with Chammy to discuss my cost and payments, gave a down payment, booked my surgery for late May and everything fell into place perfectly. No pressure at all to book! They even offer to refer you to OTHER DOCTORS that might better suit your needs if your not completely satisfied! Who does that?!? I didn't even THINK to consult with another doctor after that visit!

I went in 2 weeks pre-op, changed my mind about my implant size as I had droped to 148 lbs :), changed my mind about my appt date, and went home with detailed instructions for pre-op preparation, and once again had doubts again about my size. Maybe I wanted bigger?!? Chammy, being such a sweetheart, told me "Come in! I'll help you!". No fuss, no complaints, completely ready and happy to help! 1 week before my surgery! I went in, and lo and behold Dr. Chiu, busy as he is, was also there to help me choose what made me happy. Mentor Silicone 500ccs implants it was. Big? YES! Perfect? OF COURSE! Dr. Chiu would NEVER allow something he knew would be inadequate for your body! The surgery was smooth, the recovery, slightly painful (it's SURGERY!!), the results, PERFECT!!!I am now, 6 weeks post-op, a 36DD, completely settled, SCARLESS (areola incison), and extremely ecstatic with my look. This whole experience couldn't have been better. I even got to talk to a girl my same age when I went in for a post-op check-up, and told her that whatever she did, please don't go to any one but Dr. Chiu. I have numerous friends who have had augmentations, and NO ONE has had such amazing results and experiences like the people that have been with Dr. Chiu, which is EXACTLY why I went to him in the first place. Brazilian butt lift is next on my list! And you better believe Dr. Chiu is my go to guy just as he should be everybody else's! :)
