My journey began with a total right mastectomy and immediate reconstruction with a tissue expander. Unfortunately, I developed a capsular contracture, and had to have the tissue expander removed. How did I find Dr. Chen? I can only say that I must have a guardian angel. I was referred to a surgeon in NYC and prior to the appointment, happened to find Dr. Chen’s business card in my wallet. I was so thrilled after meeting her, that I have since decided that the card I found was a gift for which I am very thankful. I chose Dr. Chen as my surgeon for a number of reasons. She is highly skilled, very well trained, has excellent experience, and extremely high standards. I was extremely fearful of the operation, but I overcame it by realizing that I was in excellent hands. Dr. Chen answered all my questions and allayed all my fears. My recovery, as a result, was seamless. My surgery has made me so much more comfortable with my body. I feel whole again. The outcome was excellent. I manage several medical practices (including surgery) outside NYC, and I absolutely recommend Dr. Chen to anyone needing surgery.
