Christopher Chang MD

It is not uncommon to undergo a procedure and be underwhelmed with results. Nowhere is this more evident than facial procedures that don’t result in your expected outcome.

Dr. Chang’s goal is to produce powerful outcomes that are long-lasting, natural and effective. In order to do so, he is a specialist in revision Facelift and giving you the result you have been looking for, despite the disappointment you may feel from other “minor” procedures.


Why didn't I get the result I wanted?

For various reasons, you may have been less than thrilled with your prior procedures. This can be multifactorial. There are several barriers that can often lead patients to make choices that are disappointing in the end:

  • Fear of looking done
  • Fear of anesthesia
  • Fear of recovery
  • Cost

When examining these factors, it is easy to see why someone would choose a “mini” procedure or “non-invasive” approach. The allure of lower downtime, shorter scar, shorter recover and lower cost is of course appealing. However, the prospect of a subpar outcome, poorer result, and need for revision is not appealing at all and unfortunately these procedures commonly go hand-in-hand. The other factor could be that a previous surgeon was not as practiced as Dr. Chang. He is one of the most highly trained Facelift surgeons in Washington DC.

Can’t I
just have a
“touch up”?

Yes, of course you can have a touch up, small procedure, or skin tightening. But these procedures are only band-aids that do not address the reason you were disappointed or relapsed in the first place. Additionally, putting repeat tension on the incision lines only increases your chances of scar widening, and the fake “windswept” or “done” look.

Revision Facelift Washington DC

Why Choose Us

Dr. Chang is an expert in facial rejuvenation and specializes and focuses on face and neck lifting. He takes a comprehensive approach to your face and this allows him to balance the forces of gravity and aging. Additionally, because he treats the entirety of your face, he will ensure that the results will be as natural as possible.

Dr. Chang routinely performs a deep-plane Facelift. This technique allows him to re-tighten the deeper layers of the face. Since most plastic surgeons do not perform this technique as routinely, his ability to re-suspend your face, despite a prior surgery is greater than surgeons who would simply repeat the same operation a second time.

How long is my recovery going to be?

A revision Facelift will take no longer than a regular full Facelift for recovery. Most patients feel good enough to return to work in 10-14 days. Bruising and swelling will mostly be gone by then and it is ok to have your hair washed, styled and makeup can be applied. For patients who undergo skin resurfacing at the time of surgery (laser or peel), you may have some ongoing redness that would need moisturizer until the peel is complete.

If you are interested in revision Facelift surgery, please call Dr. Christopher C. Chang, a Washington D.C. plastic surgeon who has additional focus and training on facial cosmetic surgery. Using a collection of specialized techniques and precision skills, he will deliver the results you have been hoping for since your first consultation.

PRACTICE POLICY UPDATE REGARDING COVID-19

Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update

Updated April 2nd, 2020

After serious consideration and in line with the recommendations of our State and Centers for Disease Control (CDC), we are closing the practice until April 24th.

Your health and well-being is our primary concern and we want to do our part to make sure that you are protected.

Effective immediately the following will occur:

  • All procedures and in-person consultations will be suspended until at least April 24th.
  • The office will be minimally or remotely staffed, and we will see our urgent post-surgical follow-ups.
  • We are instituting Virtual Consultations for all potential patients.
  • Many surgeries are rescheduled and some of the ones that are committed will occur on a per case basis.
  • No patient will have any financial recourse for rescheduling their procedures.

We are constantly updating our services and staffing according to the local and national recommendations and will always place your health and well-being as our top priority.

We continue to exercise all the latest recommendations that are handed down by the CDC. These include:

  • Staff have been fully informed and trained to understand the disease process and its modes of transmission.
  • All staff, vendors and ancillary personnel are being asked to refrain from coming to this office if they have any signs or symptoms of a cold or an upper respiratory tract infection.
  • Every patient is also being asked to refrain from coming to the office if they have any symptoms.
  • We are asking our patients about any pertinent travel history.
  • Hand-washing continues to be the most important mode of prevention. Although it is a part of what we constantly do, now we are doing so with heightened vigilance and attention.
  • We have instituted a “no handshakes no hug” policy for now.
  • We have asked all vendors that any unnecessary meetings are canceled until further notice.
  • Any exit and entrance from our office are followed by a protocol of changing shoes, scrubs and sanitization.
  • As we are an accredited medical facility, we are constantly sanitizing all surfaces. We have now vamped that up and our routine, multiple times a day, wiping down all surfaces, desks, door handles, keyboards and restroom facilities. We have assigned a person that does so on a constant basis.

Although Covid-19 is a serious issue, we strongly believe that it will pass and hopefully make our infrastructure and our ability to deal with pandemics in this Country even better than it currently is. We are monitoring this situation on a real-time basis and will not sit back until we know that we have done everything possible to avoid unnecessary exposure.
