About Pediatric Plastic Surgery

For your children you want the best.  We understand.  As a father, Dr. Chang appreciates the concerns you have for your son or daughter and will provide the best plastic surgery care possible for them. 

There are only a few plastic surgeons who are fully trained, and have ACGME-accredited fellowship training in pediatric and craniofacial surgery in the country.  This is because it takes additional time and demands on the university to meet the academic requirements to qualify those trainees.  Fortunately, with Dr. Chang’s background, he is uniquely qualified to provide those services at the highest level to those in the Washington area. 

His great attention to detail and precise surgical techniques produce excellent cosmetic results, which translate to children as well as adults.  Whether your child has been seen in the ER for a traumatic injury, or is born with a congenital deformity, Dr. Chang will approach your child’s care with the same attention as the most demanding cosmetic clientele.
