"I’ve had nothing but great experiences at Today’s Cosmetic Surgey. Dr. Chiu and Sara are professional, compassionate, and experts at what they do. I have been getting Juvederm injections in my lips there for almost 2 years. My lips ALWAYS look amazing, natural, and just the right amount of full. I was very nervous when I went in for my first time because there are so many horror stories of lip injections. However, my lips have exceeded my expectations every time and Dr. Chiu is truly an artist. I would recommend him to anyone!"



"We (twins) got lip fillers from Dr. Chiu and we are extyhappy with how they turned out! They look very natural and smooth just how we wanted. He takes great pride in his work and we would definitely recommend him to anyone we know!!"



"I Am Super Happy with This Practice. - I have seen Dr. Chiu for several years and have had both botox and fillers. I had been contemplating a lower lift for some time but held off; first because of the expense and also I thought it might look like I had surgery. I finally talked myself into the surgery and it was well worth the expense. I'm extremely happy with the results; I know he took at least ten years off of my face and neck without any visible signs. I have total confidence in Dr. Chiu and was very glad a friend recommended him. Sara is very accomodating and makes you feel so welcome."



"Great Surgeon for Natural Results - I've been seeing Dr. Chiu for many years. Always great service -- nice office, kind, caring and does a great job maintaining a natural look. Recovery from any procedure is always easy. I highly recommend Dr. Chiu for surgery, fillers, botox"



"Would Not Trust my Face to Any Other Plastic Surgeon! Dr. Chui is a perfectionist and artist. Very skilled and knowledgeable. He has a great bedside manner. His office manager Sara is always helpful and friendly. I had a face and neck lift. I had no pain during or after the surgery. Dr Chui surgical skills have given me my confidence back. The pictures tell say it all, what a difference."
