Doctors

Dr. Jacqueline T. Cheng and Dr. Elbert T. Cheng are the only brother and sister facial surgery team in the United States

What is most advantageous about working as a brother-sister team is that, although we bring the same instincts and dedication to our work, we also bring two sets of experience, two brains and two sets of eyes for the benefit of our patients. Most often, we work independently with patients. At times, particularly in more complex cases, we work together before, during and after surgery. This flexibility allows for true collaboration and the most successful results.

22 Years Of Combined Experience

The Center for Facial Rejuvenation is uniquely dedicated to the overall patient experience. We strive to create a comfortable, warm and professional environment with each encounter.

Trained to perform cosmetic and facial reconstructive surgery, Dr. Elbert Cheng and Dr. Jacqueline Cheng have dedicated themselves to providing superior patient care through technical expertise balanced with compassion, warmth, and enthusiasm.

Both Drs. Elbert and Jacqueline Cheng have spent their entire medical training concentrating on the face, nose, eyes, ears, and neck. Their depth of study has given them the ability to apply the science of medicine to the art of facial rejuvenation.
