A Bespoke Approach

“Results So Natural, It Will Be Your Best Kept Secret™”

Dr. Chang recognizes that no two patients are the same; she creates a personalized treatment plan that will address your unique problem areas while creating her signature fresh, natural look.

During your liposuction consultation, Dr. Chang will thoroughly examine the anatomy of your face and/or body, and bone structure to determine the best procedures for your desired results. Her bespoke, custom-tailored ear pinning and liposuction techniques aim to provide the best results for each individual patient. 

What Does Liposuction entail?

Liposuction expert Dr. Chang performs this procedures either awake using local anesthesia as an in-office procedure or in an accredited surgery center under general anesthesia. The incisions are hidden and precise measurements are used to provide the most natural-looking results.

What does the procedure entail?

Liposuction, also called liposculpture, body contouring, fat removal surgery, and commonly referred to as just “lipo” is a type of cosmetic surgery designed to permanently remove unwanted, stubborn fat cells.  Liposuction works to remove this stubborn fat, creating a sculpted contour.

Dr. Chang may be performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on the extent of the surgery. To perform liposuction, Dr. Chang will first make a small 5-millimeter incision or series of incisions at the treatment area. A cannula, or a thin, hollow tube, is then inserted into the incision. The cannula will first be used to manually loosen the excess fat using a controlled motion using a saline solution called tumescent. Finally, the fat will be removed using suction and the incisions will be closed using sutures. 

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."

Who is a Candidate for Liposuction?

While liposuction permanently removes fat cells, it is not suitable for those who should lose a significant amount of weight for their health. Therefore, good candidates for this procedure are at a stable weight and within 30% of their ideal, healthy weight and in good health.

  • Neck and under the chin
  • Abdomen or stomach liposuction 
  • Back 
  • Flanks

  • Thighs
