Dr. Catherine Chang

Board-Certified Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon

SURGICAL PHILOSOPHY

NakedBeauty MD

NakedBeauty is Dr. Catherine Chang’s beauty philosophy. She wants her patients to feel confident, radiant, and beautiful in their own skin. Without the need for makeup, Photoshop or filters.

While there may be industry standards to beauty, Dr. Chang believes that beauty is subjective.  Depending on one’s inherent anatomy, genetics, skin type and ethnic & cultural heritage — beauty can mean something different to every individual. That is why Dr. Chang attentively listens to her patient’s aesthetic desires to customize a plan that specifically meets their goals. 

During the consultation Dr. Chang will have an open and honest discussion about what is possible and achievable for a natural and elegant result.

FACE

The face is key to making a good first impression.  Whether you are looking for facial rejuvenation, eyelid rejuvenation, or balancing your nose and chin, no detail is spared with Dr. Chang.

ELEGANCE DEFINED

Dr. Chang will design a couture plan for each of her patients that is customized, sophisticated, and detailed to achieve an effortless sense of elegance and beauty.  

Breast & Body

An elegant and shapely silhouette is achieved through an artistic eye and contour techniques that enhance your natural shape. Dr. Chang’s philosophy for breast and body is that achieving an ideal shape and contour should use a combination of state-of-the-art techniques such as fat grafting to achieve fuller breasts that don’t look overdone. 

 

Bigger is sometimes but not always better. Dr. Chang believes each individual is born with a unique anatomy that should be celebrated and enhanced. She determines the optimal shape and procedures for achieving beautiful breasts and a sultry body by using different techniques including implants, mastopexy (breast lift), breast reduction, fat grafting, liposuction, tummy tucks, and diastasis repair. Dr. Chang can help create beautiful and natural contours that are in aesthetic balance with your body.

TRANSFORMATIVE ARTISTRY

Through a detailed conversation about your lifestyle and goals, Dr. Chang can help formulate a plan to improve your body image with the understanding that every body is different and beautiful. She will strive to help you achieve your goal physique.

Facial Implants

Facial harmony and balance is fundamental in an attractive face for both men and women.  Dr. Chang specializes in Craniofacial Surgery- a highly specialized skill set that involves an in depth understanding of the facial skeleton. Using specialized techniques, Dr. Chang is able to augment, reduce, and create new facial contours customized to each individual. 

Custom designed

Every implant placed by Dr. Chang is elegantly crafted and hand carved to be patient specific.  Dr. Chang also specializes in custom CAD/CAM (computer aided designed/computer aided manufactured) implants. These can be created out of silicone or porous polyethylene.  Through an in-depth consultation, Dr. Chang will determine which design will be most beneficial to achieve a natural, sophisticated, and structured result.

Asian Beauty

Asian plastic surgery requires understanding of the different anatomy and aesthetic ideals of the Asian face.  From anatomic differences in the forehead, eyelid, nose, bony skeleton, and skin – the Asian face requires a unique set of surgical techniques and facial analysis. Dr. Chang’s goal is not to ‘Westernize’ or erase one’s cultural identity, but enhance natural beauty to create graceful balance with the rest of the face. 

Keen eye for beauty

A beautiful nose should look projected yet natural and balanced when viewed from any angle.  Asian rhinoplasty requires specialized training and expertise to perform DCF (diced cartilage wrapped in fascia) or rib cartilage grafts. Dr. Chang also specializes in Asian eyelid surgery, buccal fat removal, chin contouring and mid-facelifts. 

Non - Surgical Rejuvenation

Surgery is not for everyone. Dr. Chang understands this and uses a thoughtful and combined approach with fillers, neuromodulators, skin treatments, and the most advanced no surgical technology to revitalize your face and achieve your goals.

TIMELESS SOPHISTICATION

After many hours spent looking at pictures, studying surgeons' credentials, reading reviews and staring at my aging face, I chose Catherine Chang, MD for my facelift, neck lift, blepharoplasty and CO2 laser procedure. It was a leap of faith that came with great anxiety in the midst of a pandemic year. My first visit with Dr. Chang was unhurried and she took the time to explain the procedures she was recommending as well as the results that could be expected. Her confidence and understanding were reassuring. Dr. Chang is a skilled surgeon, talented and perceptive. She understood what I was looking for. State of the art results: Dr. Chang is an amazing young woman, a perfectionist.

Dr. Chang is AMAZING. I’d had incredibly severe breathing issues my whole life—I’m talking sinus headaches, blurry vision, absolutely *no* airflow through one side of my nose—all from an extremely deviated septum. On top of everything else, the septum issue created a huge bump in my nose that proved to be very problematic for my career as a performer. As a woman of color, finding a doctor who could improve my quality of life, adjust my profile, but simultaneously honor my heritage and my ethnicity was a terrifying thought. I wanted to solve my problem, but I wanted to come out looking like me. I was overwhelmed by the fear of not being heard—as I’d had many other experiences where my dignity as a patient was clearly not the priority.

Dr. Catherine Chang changed my life. At 43, I unfortunately had aged prematurely in my lower face and neck and was so unhappy with my changing appearance. I had met with a couple of other surgeons but was too scared to trust them with such a big surgery. Not only is Dr. Chang professionally incredible but she is also cool and sweet as can be and every office visit is a joy. I am so grateful I found Dr. Catherine Chang!

"Dr. Chang is absolutely amazing. I am beyond happy and thankful that I chose to have my procedure with her! Words can't describe how happy I am! My recovering was less than 3 days! Same day I was already on my feet! I only took pain medication for about a day. I recovered so fast, not a single issue. Now the best part is the results, the result is INCREDIBLE. Exactly what I wanted! Thank you Dr. Chang!!!"

"Dr. Catherine Chang is a masterful plastic surgeon! I cannot say enough about how happy I am with the results of my recent surgery! I have "cred" as they say because I'm in the business of medical aesthetics--a Registered Nurse in this field since the early 2000's. I have been extremely fortunate to work with legendary plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills. Thank you Dr. Chang for restoring this face and neck!"

"Dr. Cat Chang is amazing! I wish there were more than 5 stars I could give her. After years of contemplation, I went ahead and had the rhinoplasty (nose job) I have always wanted with Dr. Chang. I could not be more pleased with the results! I love my new profile, it is exactly what I hoped for!"

"Simply put, Dr. Chang is phenomenal on so many levels! It was such an easy decision to choose her to perform my breast implant replace and lift surgery. Apart from having a "rock star" academic resume, upon meeting her I was immediately impressed as she has a very caring demeanor, is personable, professional, compassionate, but most importantly, incredibly experienced and knowledgeable."
