Skin Reconstruction Specialist Beverly Hills

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

Skin cancer is the number one most diagnosed cancer in the world. Fortunately, the majority are curable and treatable. 

Skin cancer removal can sometimes result in the loss of a significant amount of skin for patients. Top Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, Dr. Catherine Chang specializes in highly-specialized techniques that can effectively reconstruct the skin and remove many of the visual indications that cancer has once occurred. Dr. Catherine Chang is Quadruple Ivy League educated and is a top skin reconstruction specialist. She uses her education and advanced training to perform advanced skin reconstruction methods that can create renewed and aesthetically-pleasing physical appearances for patients that can be life-changing.

Complex Skin Closures

For this technique, Dr. Chang uses the adjacent tissues to reduce tension on the wound closure. The wound is then closed in multiple layers. This technique is usually performed immediately after Mohs surgery.

Skin Grafts

Dr. Chang utlizies skin from one area of the body and transfers it onto the wound or scar. For this advanced technique, Dr. Chang meticulously creates a graft from skin taken from another part of the body to treat more extensive wounds than other techniques.

Tissue Flaps

Dr. Chang takes skin and underlying tissue from an area adjacent to the defect to be moved over the wound. This provides the benefit of using the skin most similar to the skin removed during the Mohs surgery. Oftentimes, Dr. Chang can conceal scars within the natural crease lines of the face for an undetectable look. This technique is ideal for patients with smaller wounds or scars

Cartilitage Grafts

Sometimes the cartilage in the nose has to be removed during the Mohs surgery. Without the support of the cartilage, the nostrils will collapse. Dr. Chang takes donor cartilage from either the septum of the nose or the ear for these cases. The defect is then reconstructed using the donor cartilage, and a skin flap is used to cover the cartilage.

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."
