Ratings for Dr. Tuan A. Nguyen
Dr Nguyen did chest reconstruction surgery for me and it was awful. He performed a peri-areolar surgery when a I had a C cup. It took 6 weeks to heal with open wounds that stretched up to 1 1/2inches in places surrounding my areolas. There was profuse puckering around these scars that extended out another couple of inches. In addition the tissue that was left was “lumpy” with irregular fat deposits. It is not common practice for surgeons to perform this type of surgery (for FTM/N chest reconstruction) with a breast size more than A because the results are not desirable. Dr Nguyen told me he had developed a new technique that would heed desirable results, with possible revision necessary. I chose to never get revision from him because around the same time, within a month of my surgery, he also did reconstruction on a friend. The friend opted for the double incision that I should have chose, and also nipple grafts. He was extremely disappointed with the results, with irregular nipples that were very long and pointed in different directions. He was forced to wear bandaids over his nipples so that they wouldn’t show up through his t-shirts. It is my opinion that he was experimenting on me. As a result of his bad practices, I had to do the surgery again, with the method that he should have done in the first place- double incision. I lost four weeks of work after Dr Nguyen’s surgery. This recent surgery has taken only two weeks to heal from, and I have no open wounds, and can see what real care looks like. I have had two through follow-ups with care and advice. This has left me feeling even more agitated with my treatment from Dr Nguyen. If you are interested in chest revision, or any other surgery, don’t trust his word. A huge investment of time and money left me disappointed and despaired, and I had to go through the whole process again.
Dr. Nguyen and his staff are incredible. He is sensitive, intelligent, highly skilled and yet very friendly and approachable. His bedside manner is comforting and encourages confidence. His surgical technique and skills are phenomenal. His staff is first-rate, responsive, courteous and friendly. I cannot recommend him enough.
