Hi there – I’m Dr. Jen Chow, and I thought I’d start this blog as an answer to the usual plastic surgery blogs, which seem very high on fashion and celebrity but rather low on substance.

As a board certified surgeon with fellowship training in facial plastic surgery, I hope to provide in-depth answers to the common questions which always come up in my practice. I’ll compose my explanations in everyday language that is clear in order to define the technical terms often spoken or written in cosmetic surgery. And I plan to bring a keen sense of aesthetic to my writing.

So read on about the latest advances, new techniques, and trends in facial plastic surgery. Find out what you can do before even seeing your cosmetic surgeon to learn more about them and their practice. Learn the dos and don’ts of your specific interest. I hope you can use this as a guide for your next visit to your facial plastic surgeon.
