Dr. Catherine Chang

A toned, athletic mid-section is something that both men and women desire. For a variety of reasons, this appearance may be unattainable through diet and exercise alone because of skin laxity, damaged abdominal muscles, or stubborn areas of excess fat. Dr. Chang is a top Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, known for performing the best tummy tucks in Los Angeles, CA.

r. Catherine Chang is a Beverly Hills facial plastic surgeon who specializes in tummy tuck and mini tummy tuck procedures that surgically tighten and tone the mid-section.

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 tummy tuck and mini tummy tuck.

During your abdominoplasty consultation, Dr. Chang will thoroughly examine the anatomy of your body and bone structure to determine the best procedures for your desired results. Her bespoke, custom-tailored tummy tuck techniques aim to provide the best results for each individual patient. 

Types of Tummy Tucks

Tummy Tuck expert Dr. Catherine Chang performs abdominoplasty procedures either in an accredited surgery center under general anesthesia. The incisions are hidden behind the pant line and precise measurements are used to provide the most natural-looking results.

Full Tummy Tuck

A full tummy tuck is performed by first making a horizontal incision from hip to hip across the lower abdomen, as well as around the belly button. Through this incision, Dr. Chang is then able to tighten the six pack abdominal muscles, which can become separated in the center due to pregnancy or other factors, also called a diastasis recti. Excess fat may be removed through liposuction and excess or loose skin may be removed as well. Dr. Chang will then reposition the belly button so that it is in a natural position. The full tummy tuck is performed under general anesthesia and typically takes around three hours to complete.

Mini Tummy Tuck

A mini tummy tuck also called a mini-abdominoplasty, minimal incision tummy tuck, or “scarless tummy tuck”, oftentimes has a smaller incision than a traditional tummy tuck.  In this procedure, the belly button will remain in its original position without having an incision around it. A mini tummy tuck candidate has a minimal amount of excess skin and fat in the lower abdominal area. The six-pack abdominal muscle can still be tightened through this type of smaller incision.

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."
