An Artist of the Human Aesthetic
"Dr. Nguyen is an artist of the human aesthetic. His genuine warmth and caring demeanor are only superseded by hisskill as a surgeon. I am proud and honored to call him a friend."
Thank you, Dr. Nguyen!
“For most of my adult life, I felt very lucky about my looks. It seemed like I would never age. All the way into my early forties, people thought I looked like I was in my early twenties. Once I was even mistaken for a teenager!
Then, about the time of my forty-sixth birthday, an amazing thing happened. Suddenly, I started looking older than my age. It was like someone turned my face upside down. My eyes began to droop. My chin seemed to grow a second chin, right under the first. My cheeks sagged and made lines so deep; my mouth looked like it belonged on a puppet. Almost overnight, I went from looking like a young woman to looking like an old grandmother.
Instead of being mistaken for being twenty years younger, now people thought I was twenty years older. At the office, my co-workers said I looked tired. The younger women at the office stopped asking me to join them after work. When I entered a room where young people were talking and laughing, they would stop and become serious, as if I were their teacher or senior supervisor. This had never happened to me before. How depressing!
I noticed commercials on television, read articles about plastic surgery, and looked online for information about face-lifts, but it was confusing. Sure, I was tempted to go with the ones who promised a fast and easy solution. Fortunately, the more research I did, the more I began to wonder. So I went to different doctors and got different opinions. Finally, I began to understand. Like everything else in life, there really were no quick fixes to my problem. Worse, I could have spent a lot of money to get so-so results that wouldn’t last long.
After much exploration, I discussed my research with my gynecologist, who is well-known and on the staff of one of the major hospitals. He helped me get a referral appointment with Dr. Davis Nguyen in Beverly Hills. I was impressed my doctor would have the confidence to place his own reputation and patient relationship with another specialist. I soon saw why. Dr. Nguyen holds degrees from major universities and has written articles for medical journals. He often travels nationally and internationally to teach and perform both cosmetic and reconstructive facial surgeries.
In my first consultation with Dr. Nguyen, he was able to thoroughly explain the different procedures and what he felt would have the best outcome for me. I didn’t have to take what he said on faith. He showed me photos and computer models, as well as gave me detailed explanations. Some of what he recommended for me was new, while other approaches have been around for decades. His aim was clearly to use a combination of the best medical science to restore my looks for years to come.
My search was over. A few weeks later, I arrived in the early morning for my surgery. Yes, it seemed like a big operation to me. However, I now knew there would be a big result. What was also nice was how everyone on Dr. Nguyen’s team was so supportive. Of course, he and the team did a lot of work that morning but I got to sleep through it.
A few hours later, I was on my way back home. Dr. Nguyen had even provided a nurse to stay with me the rest of the day and that entire night, just to make sure I got the right post-operative care. When I returned the next day, Dr. Nguyen was able to see for himself that everything was doing well. He sent me home to rest and let things heal up more.
Finally, a few days later, he removed the bandages and I got to see for myself. There was still some swelling but already there was a huge difference. I could see I was going to look like myself again. His office staff and assistants, whom I had gotten to know, all came in to congratulate me. It was like a party.
It’s been a little over a year since the surgery now. The other night, my young co-workers invited me to join them at a birthday dinner for one of the girls. She was turning twenty-five. The next day I got an email with a photo attached that we had the waiter take. There I was, along with five other women who were ages twenty-three to twenty-seven. And you know what? I looked like I fit right in.
Thank you, Dr. Nguyen!”
He thought only of my best interests.
"For anyone seeking plastic or cosmetic surgery, our hopes are high. However, when the surgery does not give us the result we were hoping for, the outcome can be devastating; a botched surgery can decrease our personal confidence and leave emotional scaring.
I first came to Dr. Davis Nguyen in August 2008 seeking revision surgery from a previous operation. Hoping to ensure that I found the best doctor possible to do my revision surgery, Dr. Nguyen was the fifth doctor that I consulted with. From the moment I walked into his office, I felt treated pleasantly differently than from other doctors that I had visited. His staff gave me a personalized welcome; complete with taking my drink order, and then Dr. Nguyen personally came out to tell me that he was running a bit behind schedule. When it was my turn to see Dr. Nguyen, he was attentive toward my emotions and genuinely tried to understand not only my stress and despair, but also exactly what I wanted corrected.
What impressed me most about Dr. Nguyen was his meticulous attention to detail. Before I could even begin to explain what was bothering me from the previous operation, Dr. Nguyen had already begun to take notes and explain what he felt needed to be corrected. I was amazed when he pointed out everything that had been bothering me! Dr. Nguyen even noticed a detail that none of the previous doctors had noticed; a tiny detail that had been bothering me but that had to be pointed out by me to previous doctors because it had escaped their observations. It is this attention to minute detail that convinces me of Dr. Nguyen’s ability to conscientiously respond to each individual patient’s unique needs and wants. I diligently counsel anyone considering plastic or cosmetic surgery to have a doctor like Dr. Nguyen who is able to pay close attention to the fine points because it is this thoroughness that defines the difference between a sloppy operation and a stunning procedure.
Compassion is one of the best traits a medical doctor can have, but unfortunately, is often the most lacking. Following my failed operation, when I told my previous doctor that I was unhappy with the results, he was unsympathetic to my plight and didn’t care that I was unhappy. This insensitivity can be brutal. Dr. Nguyen was very kind with me and understood how sad I was about the botched surgery. Dr. Nguyen instilled hope in me by patiently explaining that there were many options available for me and he would help me explore them all.
Based off of Dr. Nguyen’s impressive credentials, attention to detail, understanding toward his patients, and ability to build a strong rapport with his patients, I choose him to do the revision. When I told him that I wanted him to do the revision, I was surprised when he refused.
Dr. Nguyen refused to operate on me because he did not consider his own self-interests; rather he thought only of my best interests. Dr. Nguyen felt that my particular case required a different doctor than himself and he took it upon himself to find me the best doctor available for me and my situation. Dr. Nguyen then personally made the appointment for me so that not only could I be seen the very next day with the new doctor, but also allowed me to avoid a four-week wait period.
It’s been one year since my consultation with Dr. Nguyen. Unfortunately, I had to put off the operation because I left the area to pursue graduate study. Taking advantage of my summer break, I recently scheduled my operation with the doctor that Dr. Nguyen had recommended and I look forward to being able to once again look at myself in the mirror without pain and regret. During this interim period, Dr. Nguyen has served as a supportive medical mentor and advisor. Dr. Nguyen understands that the decision to have an operation, any operation, whether revisionary or not, can be nerve-wrecking. Although I’m not his patient, Dr. Nguyen has encouraged me, and continues to encourage me to contact him with any and all questions and concerns I have about the pending operation. I’ve perhaps abused this privilege by sending numerous emails and constantly calling his office to speak with him, yet Dr. Nguyen has responded to every email I’ve sent him and has returned all of my calls. Dr. Nguyen has never gotten impatient with me and is always eager to address my questions and concerns, and repeatedly tells me: “I want you to be happy with your results; that’s what’s most important.”
Now, I am scheduled to undergo corrective surgery next week with the doctor that Dr. Nguyen had recommended. With Dr. Nguyen’s help and support, I am convinced that I’ve found the best doctor for my needs and am hopeful for a positive outcome. I’m convinced that none of this would have been possible without Dr. Nguyen’s sensitivity. I am pleased to recommend him without reserve.
When you choose Dr. Nguyen, you’ve chosen the best in terms of finding a committed doctor who has your desired outcome as his top priority . . .and you’ve also assured yourself a magnificent end result that you are sure to be happy with—Dr. Nguyen will make sure of it."
Referrals thank me for finding him.
"Dr. Nguyen is one of the most professional and caring doctors that I have ever met. Recently I sent a referral to his office who ended up with a couple of procedures. She told me, ‘I will be using Dr. Nguyen for the rest of my life!’ I thought the days of Dr. Welby were over, but he is a doctor who calls his patients more than once after the most minor of procedures—sometimes as a doctor and often as a friend.
At a recent open house party at his new office, I looked around and everyone looked younger and natural.
All nine of my most recent referrals thank me for finding him."
Extremely Talented and Yet So Humble
"I am a 35 year old asian male with a typical flat bulbous nose. Dr. Nguyen was able to make subtle changes that improved my appearance tremendously. My self confidence and esteem significantly increased. His office is filled with such down to earth people who genuinely cared about my procedure. Dr. Nguyen is a class act who is extremely talented and yet so humble. He is IVY league trained and has practiced with the best facial plastic surgeons in the world. The most amazing thing about him is his sense of compassion for his patients. He even makes house calls! He follows up with me even though I had the procedure done in 2005."
He's an artist.
"From the moment I arrived at Dr. Nguyen's office to explore the possibility of a neck lift, I felt cared for by his knowledgeable staff. During this exploratory meeting, Dr. Nguyen went over in detail the expected results as well as what he would do to achieve this.
All of the arrangements and preparation details were handled professionally (and without drama) by Dr. Nguyen's team. The post-op follow up was immediate and thorough, and conducted by Dr. Nguyen personally, sensitively and with old-fashioned bedside manner. I am extremely pleased by the results and would not hesitate for a moment to recommend the Linden Clinic and Dr. Nguyen.
After meeting the doctor and seeing his work, my son Nicholas summed up his expertise with "He's an artist, Dad!"
The results are amazing.
“A very large melanoma appeared in the middle of my left cheek and one almost in the middle of my forehead. Surgery was my only option and I was very aware of how disfiguring it could be. I knew I needed a doctor very skillful in reconstructive surgery, so I went to meet with Dr. Davis B. Nguyen.
Melanoma surgery is done in three phases. First, there is the removal of the cancer, then a wait for pathology reports, and then the major reconstruction. The surgery was long and arduous, but the outcome is a Cinderella story.
The compassionate care I received all through the ordeal was remarkable and I am truly grateful. The results are amazing. My face is restored and, I might add with great delight, I am a younger looking and more attractive me.
Thank you, Dr. Nguyen.
Every visit is a joy.
“Dr. Nguyen is a very kind person; he has a lot of patience. I had four surgeries with him and each one of them cameout better than the other. I feel that Dr. Nguyen became more than a doctor to me, he became a friend and that is what makes it easy on each procedure. With all of the work that I have done with him, no one can tell because it looks natural. Even the staff working with him are the nicest people and they are all very professional. I am very happywith the service and everything about it. Every visit is a joy. I highly recommend using him.“
A Wonderful and Rare Combination
"I am a 55 year old woman who has had her fair share of medical procedures over the years. Never, in all those years, have I met a doctor quite like Dr. Davis Nguyen. He is without question, the most compassionate, caring and skilled surgeon I have had the good fortune with whom to be associated. The cosmetic procedures Dr. Nguyen performed on me were flawless with none of the tell-tale signs we all have seen from cosmetic surgery. I simply look fresher and, frankly, quite a bit younger following both my surgical and laser treatments by him. All of his patients, whether celebrities or not, are treated with the same personal attention and care.
Both my mother and I have also needed his skill for non-cosmetic procedures, each of us having melanomas. My mother required extensive reconstructive surgery on her face. As a result of Dr. Nguyen's skill as a surgeon, my mother is as beautiful today as she was prior to the procedure. He personally visited her every day to change her dressings. How often do we see this, given today's impersonal medical environment?
While I live close to New York City, where there are hundreds of plastic surgeons, I will travel across the country to see Dr. Nguyen, as would my mother. Dr. Nguyen has assembled a wonderful staff that makes you feel as if you were a member of their own family.
I am not a person who normally writes testimonials, but my experience with Dr. Nguyen has compelled me to tell you how I feel. Dr. Nguyen is not only a perfectionist in terms of his skill, he is the most nurturing doctor I have ever met.
This is a wonderful and rare combination."
"Dr. Nguyen is the most professional, wonderful doctor I've ever known! And besides that, he's warm, engaging, interesting and fun. He's a pleasure to know. I believe that he genuinely cares about every one of his patients.
His professional expertise and skills are the best I’ve ever experienced. When I considered surgery, Dr. Nguyen was available for every question and/or concern, with patience and understanding. I couldn't be happier with the results of
my surgery. It's above and beyond my expectations.
He insists on frequent follow up visits to be certain the healing is progressing the way it should and that you are happy with the way you look. His attention to detail is exemplary. I get compliments daily about how great I look. Especially when I mention my teenage grandchildren. Most of them don't know I've had surgery because I look very natural
and un-lifted. When I tell people I've had surgery they want to know all about it and I'm more than happy to share my experience. I have absolute trust and admiration for Dr. Nguyen.
His vision is perfection. And his staff is the best ever. They are friendly, pleasant and very efficient. I give them all five stars!"
I highly recommend his services.
"I am writing this testimonial in the hopes that it will help people who are undecided as to which plastic surgeon to consider for themselves.
Over the past few years, Dr. Nguyen has been my doctor. I am so very pleased with the way I look now, as a result of his ability to give me such a natural and youthful appearance. When people who haven't seen me in awhile see me, they cannot get over how well-rested and glowing I look. They have never guessed that I have had a face lift.
Dr. Nguyen impressed me from the first time I met him because of his sincere, caring and trusting nature and personality.
When I see him for an office visit, he always gives me his full attention, and I never feel rushed. He is a perfectionist in his work and a true gentleman and friend to his patients.
I highly recommend his services."
I am so happy.
"I am extremely happy with my face augmentation. I look refreshed and natural and everyone tells me I look 10 years younger! Dr. Nguyen is very professional, personal, up front and discreet. He and his staff are very knowledgeable, friendly and caring. The office is always very clean and inviting. My expectations were definitely exceeded! I am so happy I made the decision to have this surgery."
The results are more than amazing.
“For years I have photographed Dr. Davis Nguyen's 'after' patients and am amazed at how natural his work appears. People look wonderful and I always have to ask, (before photographing them), 'What procedure did Dr. Nguyen do for you?' since there is nothing obvious… only a more handsome or more beautiful person.
I've photographed for other surgeons and Dr. Nguyen's work is easily the best I've seen... though people look so natural that 'seen' is the wrong term, I'm sure.
Dr. Nguyen has now done a bit of work for me too... and the results are more than amazing.... no one thinks I've had ANYTHING 'done' ... and those who know me think I've just returned from 'a wonderful vacation having had a fabulous time'! All this from 'just a bit of work'. THANK YOU Dr. Nguyen!! :)”
"Dr. Nguyen and I first met four years ago, and I immediately felt comfortable with him and his professional staff. I trust him implicitly and find him to be exceptionally knowledgeable and informative, having a pleasant and highly professional manner. He is extremely talented.
I consider Dr. Nguyen a good friend and have similar feelings for his well-informed and delightful staff. Trust in a doctor has to be earned. Dr. Nguyen has gained my full trust and I would and have highly recommended him to anyone considering his services."
Unbelievably Courteous and Discreet
"I have been to many doctors but none are as gentle as Dr. Nguyen. Dr. Nguyen is the best doctor in town. If you want to look younger and natural—He is the one!
Dr. Nguyen and his entire staff are unbelievably courteous and discreet. Dr. Nguyen really cares about his patients. He is honest and will always recommend what is best for you. Most importantly, he is great at what he does and has an amazing way of making you look natural.”
Knowledgeable about all the procedures he performs.
"I have been a client of Dr. Nguyen since 2007 and before that have been to various Beverly Hills plastic surgeons. I immediately felt so comfortable with Dr. Nguyen and his staff; he is so knowledgeable about all the procedures he performs.
During the past 3 years I have had two procedures, people are always complimenting my skin and how young I look, so much that I have referred five new clients to him who are also thrilled with their results. Dr. Nguyen is also an extremely generous man, I'm heavily involved with animal welfare and he never turns me down when I ask him to donate his services for a fundraiser to help dogs and cats get rescued from our shelters.
I highly recommend Dr. Nguyen to anyone wanting to feel better about themselves. He is awesome!"
This is a great office.
"I came to this office with a friend who had gotten Restalyne and today we came in for her follow up, Dr. Nguyen saw a few spots that needed some more filler and listened to what my friend thought she needed as well and did everything she asked for at no additional charge, said it was part of the follow up.... How wonderful! This is a great office, you are greeted by Jessica who is fun, supportive. And knowledgable and I found Dr. Nguyen to be incredibly accommodating and professional. I just had Juvaderm somewhere else and experienced pain and the Doctor left me unfinished and frankly I wish I had paid a bit more and gone to Dr. Nguyen in the beginning!"
"One word...PERFECTION!!! Dr. Nguyen was born to make woman smile. From the second you walk through his doors you know you are in good hands. His work is unbelievable. I am 1 of 3 generations of woman who see Dr. Nguyen...enough said."
The best surgeon I have ever been to.
"Dr. Davis Nguyen is by far the best surgeon I have ever been to. After many years and my fair share of experience with plastic surgery I can honestly say he is the most talented and attentive doctor I have ever had. I first visited him in his office in Beverly Hills after being referred to him by a friend of mine who is in the entertainment industry. I instantly felt comfortable with him and his staff. He is not slick and rough like some of the Beverly Hills surgeons I have met. He is gentle and down-to-earth, especially for a Yale trained doctor. (He is also board certified in Facial Plastic Surgery----which is VERY important.)
I booked a facelift with him right away. My results are incredible. I look like myself about 10 years ago. He has been my doctor for the last 4 years now. I also see him for my botox and fillers to my lips and cheek areas, as I did not want cheek implants. I would highly and confidently recommend him to anyone."
Thrilled with the Results
“My experience with Dr. Nguyen exceeded my wildest expectations.
Born and raised in this town, I’ve had the opportunity to see the top plastic surgeons’ work. Dr. Nguyen’s work really stands out not only for his remarkable skills, but also for the passion and dedication he has for his patients.
Several of my friends have had procedures done with Dr. Nguyen and are thrilled with the results. Come to think of it, I’ve never met a patient of his who were not thrilled with their results.
He’s simply the best head and neck doctor I’ve seen. I’d also be remiss if I did not mention what a wonderful and caring human being he is.
Oh, and can you believe it, he’ll also make house calls.”
More Confidence in Myself
“Dr. Davis did a wonderful job on my nose.
There were a lot of things I had previously liked about my nose but also a couple things that needed to be refined, such as a bump on the bridge of my nose as well as the tip. Post surgery, my nose looked absolutely perfect. Dr. Davis was able to correct the flaws without altering my natural appearance. Now, 3 months later, no one could have ever known I had surgery on my nose. In fact, none of my friends even noticed until I mentioned it to them. They would just say, “You look great!” Overall, it was a wonderful experience that gave me a lot more confidence in myself. “
I was extremely happy that I chose him to be my doctor.
"My time with Dr. Davis Nguyen was an excellent experience. His work is amazing and he is an amazing surgeon. I was very nervous going into surgery, but he reassured me that everything was going to be fine. After seeing what an amazing job he did, I was extremely happy that I chose him to be my doctor."
I couldn’t be happier with the results.
"In short, I had a great experience as a patient of Dr. Nguyen’s. I couldn’t be happier with the results of my face, neck, and browlift – friends are astonished and think I look years younger. The quality of the stitches was tremendous and you can’t even see my incisions. Most importantly, I appear natural and still look like myself, just more youthful and attractive! The office staff was wonderful, supportive, and knowledgeable. The aftercare provided by Dr. Nguyen and his office is unsurpassed- he even made housecalls! Overall, he is the most accessible and communicative doctor I have ever had the pleasure of seeing."
He is simply an artist.
“I have been a patient of Dr. Nguyen for more than five years and there is no one else to whom I would trust my face. He does filler and injectable treatments better than any doctor I have ever seen, he is simply an artist. I LOVE the way he does my lips because he is extremely conservative and they always look natural. I am a professional model and singer, so it is extremely important that I not look fake and I can always count on Dr. Nguyen to keep me looking my best for TV appearances and photo shoots. Over the years I have referred dozens of patients to Dr. Nguyen all of whom are as thrilled with the quality of his work as I am.”
