Dr. Ting performed three surgeries within a 6 month period. She did a breast reconstruction after cancer. I was amazed how everything turned out. Beautiful work. She is very caring and makes you feel very comfortable. I would recommend Dr. Ting to anyone. Thanks to Dr. Ting for all the encouragement which really made going thru this process a whole lot easier. Everyone in the office is great.

I interviewed several plastic surgeons for my breast cancer reconstruction before making my decision. Dr.Ting is very patient, kind, straight forward and a perfectionist. Her appointments are always on time yet you never feel rushed. Dr. Ting's staff is so warm and friendly. I couldn't be happier with my experience and the outcome of my surgery!

Dr. Ting and her staff are amazing. The minute you walk in you feel welcomed. They are always so attentive and cheerful. I am currently under Dr. TIng's care for breast reconstruction after chemo/radiation treatments. Had tissue expanders placed and waiting for the skin to heal before implant surgery. Dr. Ting is honest, straight forward and wants the best results for you. I enjoy her sense of humor too!
I also have had Botox and Juvederm filler. Cancer can take a toll on your skin and I love how it looks now.
I know that I'm in the best of hands with Dr. Ting and her awesome staff!

How do you say enough about someone who puts your body back together - helps put your life back together? Breast cancer and a mastectomy left me pretty broken, but by some good fortune I met Vivian, who with her superb skills and gentle, thoughtful, very capable manner, reconstructed a very real looking breast. I am so grateful for her knowledge, abilities, and friendship, and it is a sincere pleasure to recommend her to anyone in need of plastic or reconstructive surgery.

Dr was amazing. I was concerned with. My daughters facial scar from an injury and Dr Ting e planned everything thoroughly and advised a procedure. Her staff was phenomenal with us and put us at ease about the surgery. I was so happy with the care, attentiveness, and skill level of Dr Ting. And above all, she's just a super nice person. Highly recommend her and her impressive staff! They definitely know how to make a girl feel pretty both inside and out;)

I went to see Dr. Ting for the loose skin (aka batwings) I developed under my upper arms after years of yo-yo dieting. She prescribed Thermage for this, and treated both upper arms in one short office visit. She was very professional and great at explaining the basis for the treatment and what to expect afterwards. Although it takes some time for Thermage to provide results, I definitely saw improvement in a few months. By one year later, the improvement was significant. I will be going back for further treatments when needed, for certain! Dr. Ting is awesome. I highly recommend her.

Like the previous reviewer, I'm not the nip and tuck type really, but starting a new service business I was looking for ways to look my best as I go out and try to drum up clients. Dr. Ting is a personal friend of mine and I was talking to her about my thoughts and concerns about how to update my image,etc. I told her I was definitely not interested in a face lift or anything like that because, a) I'm not THAT vain, b) I'm not THAT old, and c) I'm not that rich. Not to mention that, call me old fashioned, but as a guy I'm just not quite sure we guys should do that kind of thing anyway.
Dr. Ting was totally understanding and explained that there are many non-surgical procedures available to "touch up" my 48-year-old appearance. We talked about what each procedure could and couldn't do, and what results i would be happy with. I felt she really understood what I would be comfortable with and she made sure I completely understood the options.
In the end she recommended three procedures. The first was a little Botox to ease my frown lines to soften my face a little, and to touch up the beginnings of crows feet at the corners of my eyes. Second, she suggested Restylane to fill in the creases from my nose to the corners of my mouth. Third, we did a Thermage treatment of my face to get rid of the fine lines I am developing from too many years in the sun skiing and sailing.
Dr. Ting was very gentle throughout the procedures, which can cause some significant discomfort (Botox and Restylane involve multiple injections and the Thermage involves heating tissues under your skin). I was really dreading the injections but she was very careful to be quick and smooth, keeping the discomfort to a minimum. She constantly checked how I was doing and would move to another area if the spot she was working on was getting too sensitive.
The changes to my appearance from these procedures were ideal. They were subtle, not overwhelming. But they were also a distinct improvement. They made my face look more firm and youthful, without making me feel like they made me look like someone else. It's my face, just a little firmer, smoother, and more relaxed.
I can definitely recommend Dr. Ting to anyone who is looking for well explained consultation on all the options for improving their appearance, and excellent execution of whatever procedures best fit their needs and goals.
