A good chance to learn the introduction of plastic surgery in one month. Saving time and money by learning online. Great amount of learning materials and quiz can be done online (this part is self-studying, self -paced). Have chance to view many plastic surgery video with teacher and classmates. Good atmosphere in the classes. A great experience, thank you, Dr. Lin!

I had the great opportunity to work with Dr.Lin in a virtual plastic surgery rotation during the month of November 2020. during my month with Dr.Lin I learned a lot about the basics of plastic surgeries as well as the new advances in plastic surgery. Dr.Lin was a great mentor, answering all of our questions and explaining the procedures for us. Dr.Lin opened my eyes to the field of plastic surgery a field I was always fascinated and interested in and my interest grew even further after my experience with him. Thank you Dr.Lin for the time and effort and I would always recommend this rotation to a friend or colleague.

I was 44, with a wife and four young children, when I decided to have a preventative bilateral mastectomy. My mom and I both have a breast cancer gene mutation. We were diagnosed with the gene after my mom got breast cancer. And after watching her go through chemo and radiation, it became clear that I did not want that for myself or my family. My wife and I met with several doctors in Connecticut but ultimately traveled to Boston to meet with Dr. Lin. I initially thought that I would reconstruct with expanders and a later exchange surgery. But Dr. Lin suggested that I do a direct implant. It turned out to be a really insightful suggestion. I think Dr. Lin understood that I needed to wake up from the surgery with implants because no matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t seem to prepare myself for the alternative. Recovering from a bilateral mastectomy is physically hard, but the psychological pressure I had felt and fear of feeling disfigured or fundamentally unlike myself let up as soon as the procedure was over. I wasn’t unrecognizable to myself; and as I healed, I began to really liked the way I looked. I’m now a year out from my surgery. Every medical professional who I’ve seen in the last year—gynecologist, internal medicine doctor, nurses, etc.—has been amazed at my results, and each has remarked that this is why you see a real specialist. I’m grateful to Dr. Lin for both his expertise and for his incredibly thoughtful approach to my particular situation.

Excellent and very talented reconstructive surgeon. I couldn’t be more happy with the result of my cancer related surgery. Doctor Lin doesn’t promise miracles he just performs them. Thank you again! Little update after my last check up. Result of my deep flap surgery getting better and better every year. It’s already 5 years. Result is so natural I couldn’t ask for more. Highly recommend this procedure with dr Lin!

I suffered from a deviated septum as a result of an accident. For almost 10 months, I had trouble breathing through the right side of my nose as it was almost completely blocked due to the deviated septum. I could not even sleep through the night due to this and I was in a lot of discomfort for a long time. Dr. Lin and his entire team were absolutely fantastic right from the initial consult to the surgery and even through the follow-ups. I ran into issues with my insurance while trying to get pre-approval for the surgery and Dr. Lin and his team constantly stayed in touch with me and stayed on top of the issue and worked with my insurance company to resolve the issues ASAP and helped me get the necessary pre-approvals for the surgery. I have felt so much better since the surgery and can finally breathe through the nose again. I would definitely recommend Dr. Lin without any hesitations. He is very empathetic and paid personal attention throughout my journey.

Dr Lin is one of the best teacher in the whole world.He has helped me a lot to discover myself and my passion for plastic surgery.He has made the subject so interesting that I am now now determined to put my best efforts to match into this residency one day. He was very friendly and was patient enough to answer each and every doubts we had, no matter how silly they seemed to be. I felt like days were flying and we were getting more connected emotionally to this great personality. I got a chance to see numerous surgical videos and also could learn many new concepts. The best qualities of Dr Lin is that he is so much dedicated in teaching his students and motivating them to pursue their dreams. He made me understand the need for being updated and trying to be familiar with every new techniques in surgery as well as medicine. Attending Plastic surgery virtual classes with him is one of the best decisions I ever made during the pandemic and my whole life.. Can never thank him enough.

My journey to cosmetic surgery really began as a young woman. I’ve always enjoyed and taken pride in looking my best. I wear makeup and nice clothes to enhance my appearance. Now at age 67, I thought my face looked tired, my neck, eyelids and jowls sagged. I had a few more wrinkles and age lines than before, and the compliments I received were now fewer. I promised myself as a young woman that when the time was right for me, I would regain that feeling of youth and turn back the clock a little with the help of cosmetic surgery. In early 2020, I decided that the time for me was now. In July 2020, Dr. Samuel Lin performed a face and neck lift and upper eyelid surgery. The results were simply amazing! Dr. Lin has taken at least 10 years off my appearance. At age 67 I am now often mistaken for my early 50s. I smile every day when I look into the mirror and know that this was among the best decisions I ever made for me! Was the pain worth the outcome? A resounding, yes! The most pain I experienced was during the first 2-3 days, but the pain medication made it comfortable and manageable. After 7 days the occasional Tylenol was enough. Dr. Lin is an extremely talented plastic surgeon. His credentials speak volumes to this and I promise you, I did my research. Dr. Lin was patient, professional, and took time to respond to all my concerns and questions; I would not hesitate to recommend him for any of your cosmetic needs. I couldn’t be more pleased with my results. I must also acknowledge Dr. Lin’s Administrative Assistant, Stacy Agbonifo for her outstanding and exceptional assistance throughout the administrative procedural process from booking appointments, completing paperwork, to preparing for my surgery. Her professionalism, willingness to help, and warm personality put me at ease. I’ve had so many positive comments about my appearance and even received second glances from strangers and friends. It is wonderful to feel young again! While I told my family and closest friend about my surgery, to the rest of the world, it will be our little secret. This was made possible by the skillful surgeon, Dr. Lin and his team with my resulting “natural” looking results. As the middle child, my sisters now jokingly call me their baby sister. Jean W.

It was a great learning experience even during the Covid 19 situation thanks to Dr. Samuel, I personally am very grateful for the Opportunity to have been able to improve my knowledge about the latest advances in skin grafting, bone grafting, implants and prosthesis. Dr Samuel is a awesome teacher, he gave us a lot of learning material during our clinical rotation and let us learn at our own pace, before this rotation my knowledge of plastic surgery was minimal at best..but after learning from Dr. Lin who is among the best in his field, i really got a thorough understand of the depth and scope of the field of plastic surgery. Overall it was excellent and also I would like to thank my fellow students during the rotation for asking so many interesting questions to Dr Lin, it was great working with many different people from many different backgrounds. All in all exceptional people everyone of them.
