The face is what people see when they meet us, and what stays in their minds. In many ways, our facial features define us and the image we present to the world. Asymmetry and disproportionate features detract from our perceived attractiveness and can be associated with negative personality traits that we don’t actually possess. The ravages of time can leave our faces sunken, worn, and wrinkled, giving the mistaken impression that we are constantly tired, angry, or sad.
Effective facial plastic surgery requires a steady hand, refined technique, and delicate touch, as well as an intricate understanding of the way our individual facial features come together to form a cohesive face. Completing his Craniofacial Fellowship at the renowned Johns Hopkins Hospital, board-certified with the American Board of Plastic Surgery, he has a unique understanding of facial anatomy which equips him to perform a combination of brand-new, cutting-edge techniques, along with tried and true methods that have been used for decades.

The full array of plastic surgery services
Many people seek the services of a plastic surgeon for cosmetic concerns associated with the face: rhinoplasty, facelift, injectable treatments to minimize aging, and other procedures to correct facial asymmetries or disproportionate features. While Dr. Chang prides himself on his expertise in craniofacial plastic surgery, he is also a leading provider of cosmetic surgeries associated with the breasts, body, and other areas of concern for his patients.
For many women, the ravages of time begin to show up most noticeably in the breasts. Pregnancies and breast-feeding cause significant fluctuations in the size and shape of the breasts, as can normal aging processes. Sagging breasts lacking their earlier definition and volume are common, and may impact a woman’s self-image. These issues can be addressed at our breast augmentation Washington DC offices.Breast Procedures
From the legs and arms to the abdominal area, many people are unhappy with different areas of their bodies, for various reasons. As a plastic surgeon with training from some of the best medical and cosmetic institutions in the nation, Dr. Chang is prepared to address your concerns head-on with his skill in preforming the right procedures to reach the results you are hoping for.Body Procedures
As we age, our skin begins to show the effects of time and environmental damage. Gravity starts to take hold, and as skin loses collagen and elasticity, you notice more sagging and wrinkling. Heredity can play a role in how early facial aging begins, but generally, the signs start to appear in the late 30s to early 40s. A facelift will address many troublesome areas, restoring a youthful, firm, rejuvenated appearance.
Breast augmentations may be performed for a variety of reasons. Many women want a fuller, more curvy appearance; others desire a proportionally-balanced appearance. Breast augmentation increases the size and volume of a woman’s breasts. It can be accomplished using saline implants, silicone implants or with natural fat transfer. The choice will depend on many factors including your body type and the goals of the procedure.
The short answer is yes. Breast augmentation will not interfere with or prevent you from getting pregnant. If you are planning to have a baby sooner, rather than later, you might want to wait until after pregnancy and breastfeeding to have your augmentation. Pregnancy can be hard on a woman’s body, especially her breasts. If you plan on breastfeeding your baby, it may be better to undergo breast augmentation when completed.
Every woman has unique cosmetic concerns when it comes to the breasts. Many are dissatisfied with how gravity has affected breasts’ overall shape and location on the chest. Saggy breasts can be restored to a rounded, youthful look. In a breast lift, Dr. Chang can reshape and restore your breast tissue, removing excess skin, and restore a more buoyant, youthful, plump appearance.
Your nose is one of the first features people notice. If you have struggled with the shape or size of your nose, rhinoplasty (or a “nose job”) can reshape your nose and create a more balanced, attractive look. The procedure is not only for cosmetic purposes and may necessary in correcting a structural problem. The procedure can repair structural deformities such as a deviated septum, which often leads to breathing problems including chronic stuffiness, snoring and post-nasal drip. A visibly uneven nose structure can be corrected so the nose is an enhancement, rather than a distraction.
Every patient has his or her own threshold for pain tolerance. Dr. Chang may recommend over the counter or prescription medications to ensure you are comfortable during recovery. Generally, patients who have had facial procedures report a minimal amount of discomfort. Liposuction may be slightly more uncomfortable, and procedures that involve altering muscles such as a tummy tuck will require a longer recovery time.
If you are looking for quality results, experience matters. It is important to make sure your doctor is a well-qualified, board-certified surgeon with extensive experience in the surgical procedure you are considering. Dr. Chang ranks among the top surgeons in the Washington, DC area, and has years of experience and training. He is knowledgeable in the most advanced plastic surgery techniques and is an acclaimed plastic surgeon, recognized for surgical excellence in a range of procedures.
When you trust a surgeon with your very appearance and the face you present to the world, you don’t want to leave anything to chance. Never go to a plastic surgeon that hasn’t been certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons, the governing body for cosmetic surgeons in the United States. In choosing the care provider that will be the best fit for you, look into the person’s background – where did they go to school? What kind of fellowship did they complete? Is their focus on traditional, long-proven methods, or are they on the front lines of progress?
