I had been considering getting liposuction on my calves and ankles ever since I can remember. I finally got the courage to meet with a few top doctors in Beverly Hills. My first consult was with Dr. Chiu, even though he spent an hour educating me and I felt so comfortable with him, I forced myself to do my due diligence and meet with the other 2 doctors. The other 2 doctors seemed not as genuine and that they were in a hurry, and sleezy like a car salesmen. It was clear that they were not so open to answer my questions and couldn't be bothered. It felt like they would do me the favor by operating on me whereas with Dr. Chiu it felt like he was an equal helping me correct a problem I had with my body.
It was very clear to me after I finished the consults that Dr. Chiu was the Doctor for me. He made me feel important and he wanted me to make the best decision for myself and didn't try to sell me on anything else, unlike the other doctors. I went ahead and booked my appt..it has only been 5 days post urgent and I couldn't be happier! Just like he said, I would notice a difference in my legs immediately after even with the swelling. He is truly an artist who cares about his patients and wants to help them get the best of themselves. He was also very honest in telling me what Was possible as far as results and what pain I would experience. He validated all of my concerns and was incredibly patient in answering my many questions. The other doctors didn't seem to care and focused on doing the least possible to get the deal. My husband texted him at 5am in the morning for a Muscule relaxer and he was on it immediately. He has given me my life back already I am shopping for short skirts and shorts, I feel so free and overjoyed that I actually did it!
The patient coordinator Chammy was incredibly supportive as well. I told her my main consideration was pain and recovery. She let me contact 2 of his former patients that had the same procedure that I was looking to have done. It was so refreshing that they were so happy with their results and were wiling to share their experiences and their photos. I would highly recommend Dr. Chiu for any plastic surgery! His bedside manner is very warm and kind and he has proven his expertise and I have incredibly slim legs to prove it! The rest of his office staff including Suzy is incredibly nice and goes out of their way to make you feel comfortable!
