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
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.

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.
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.

"I have never felt so confident. Dr. Chang completely changed how I saw myself in the mirror. I was terribly self conscious of my nose from my youth and finally decided to go through with the surgery. Not only was it inexpensive compared to the other three doctors I contacted, the before and after pictures of patients were also much better looking than the others! The whole process of surgery and recovery was quick and pretty much painless. I would definitely recommend him to anyone wanting cosmetic surgery. It really made me a happier person." - Catherine M.
"My son was in a terrible accident with most of the bones in his face and skull broken... I don't know what I would have done without Dr Chang!! My son is fully recovered and back to his old self again. I love Dr Chang, he will be in my prayers for the rest of my life. Thank you!" - Elizabeth A.
"I cannot say enough about my surgery with Dr. Chang! I had full facial Rejuvenation including a facelift brow lift and upper eyelids done 4 months ago. I also had a chemical peel to my lower eyelids and mouth. They was barely any pain and I was back to work the next week! I am so thrilled and my friends are so impressed. I cannot say enough about my experience! He is both caring and an amazing surgeon! Thank you so much!" - Cathy W.
The entire experience and outcome was everything I hoped for and I cannot thank Dr. Chang enough! He is a true pro and I recommend 100% without reservation!" - Ashley R.
"I went to Dr. Chang to correct the damage done to my breasts from pregnancy and breastfeeding. He went above and beyond to make me comfortable and to explain exactly what the procedures (lift + implants) would entail. He was extremely responsive and truly understood the look that I was trying to achieve - full, natural for my frame, and with minimal scarring. I'm only two days out from surgery and I'm already loving my results. I am so glad that I chose Dr. Chang to restore my chest to its pre-baby appearance. I actually think they are going to be better than they ever were before I had kids!" - Emily L.
