Keeping an eye on the creation of natural-looking results, Dr. Chang has created Aesthetica Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center, his full-service plastic surgery practice, as well as Radiance Salon and Medi-Spa with locations in both Ashburn and Leesburg, Virginia. He offers an array of treatments, from facial, breast and body-contouring procedures to nonsurgical services, which include lasers, Botox Cosmetic, facial fillers and nonsurgical fat reduction. Among his favorite procedures is the Mommy Makeover, which, to Dr. Chang, means more than just restoring the breasts and body. It also means rejuvenating the appearance of the face.

A Minute With

  1. Three words that best describe me

    Quiet, kind, inquisitive

  2. The future of my field

    It might seem counterintuitive, but improvements in technology including lasers, Botox® and longer-lasting fillers are allowing plastic surgeons to be more artistic

  3. My motto

    Always do your best

  4. How i make the best first impression

    It is not easy to come to
    a plastic surgeon’s office to show off your perceived imperfections, so we try to make the process as less medical as possible

  5. My operating room playlist

    Jason Mraz, Genesis, Taylor Swift

  6. My happiest professional moment

    I was once approached by a former patient who wanted to thank me. She had been in an accident and the facial reconstructive surgery I performed on her was so successful that I didn’t
    even recognize her at first; she said the surgery had changed her life, and that moment changed mine

  7. What sets my practice apart

    We invest in the best technology, not
    the cheapest

  8. Most memorable thing i learned this year

    I learned that when
    your children start going to college, you feel just
    a little bit older

  9. What i love most about my profession

    The idea that I can immediately change
    the appearance and self- esteem of my patients, and that these changes are often life-changing

  1. My mother has the classic turkey wattle below her chin, and I can see my skin getting a little loose, so I worry that I'm going to have the same. Do I do something early or wait until it gets bad?
    What our experts say:

    It's like anything in cosmetic surgery. You do something when it begins to bother you. So you don't necessarily look at the mother but you look at your situation now and if it bothers you then this is the time to treat it. A neck wattle is usually just a little bit of fat so you can do a necklift and liposuction to remove that, which is a 15 minute procedure, very easy. Or if there's a lot of skin now you can do a neck liposuction and a mini facelift with touchups over time.

  2. Can a facelift remove or reduce neck fat that might be otherwise removed in a necklift?
    What our experts say:

    Not by itself but in a lot of patients we'll combine the actual surgical facelift with neck liposuction. Once the fat is removed from the neck, if they have a lot of fat they'll have a lot of looseness, you almost need to do a facelift to get that skin elevated.

  3. Can a patient choose where they have fat taken from for a facelift with fat transfer?
    What our experts say:

    Yes. But generally they'll choose where I suggest. In general I don't like taking it from the lower belly because the fat doesn't seem to be similar to the fat of the face. The globules are bigger and I don't think it takes as well.

  4. Can you do a tummy tuck through a C-section scar?
    What our experts say:

    A lot can be done through a C-section scar because typically what I'll do is cut out a C-section scar and make a new one right below it or at the same level so you'll wind up with just one scar, which is the tummy tuck scar.

  5. How can I keep a natural looking brow as I age? And prevent the need for other types of face procedures?
    What our experts say:

    With Botox you can stave off the need for a browlift. The glabellar lines people talk about, 'the elevens, those muscles actually bring down the brow. So if you treat those areas with Botox the brow doesn't fall as fast. For skin care we have access to IPL lasers and Fraxel-type lasers, which are now building up collagen and reducing UV damage. I think that slows down the aging process and prevents the skin from losing its elasticity.



"I am one of those people that can express myself verbally much better than in writing, but I was compelled to write about my experience having a mini face lift and upper and lower lid surgery with local anesthesia at age 68, preformed by Dr. Chang. Initially I went to see him for mini face lift, but he suggested blepharoplasty. After the surgery and during my recovery I looked at my eyes and my face everyday. The bags are gone, and I love my face. Dr. Chang, Angie, Karen and his entire staff were so kind, efficient and professional. Everything went seamlessly. He is truly an artist. Never for a moment do I doubt him. I love the way I look and my husband loves it too. I am told how good I look all the time. I highly recommend Dr. Chang. He is skillful, talented, trustworthy and a fantastic plastic surgeon. Read the reviews, schedule a consultation, talk to dr. Chang. It is easy and you will love it. "
