"I've been to Dr. Chang's office twice now, once for chin liposuction and most recently for botox. I found both experiences to be wonderful. The lipo was the best thing I ever did for myself. The results were great and Dr. Chang and his staff are so friendly and welcoming. I highly recommend him!"- J.T. / Yelp / Apr 15, 2015
"Dr. Chang made a changed my life for the better. I had a tummy tuck, breast lift and reduction, and liposuction and he performed these procedures beautifully. I now have a waist and flat tummy; two things I never dreamed could be possible. I traveled all the way from California to Virginia in order to be his patient. He works with your natural shape and makes the most of your existing strengths. You will not be disappointed!"- J.M. / Google / Aug 07, 2013
"I went to Dr.chang to see about getting breast augmentation and possible liposuction... I have to say it was a pleasant experience from begining till the end... He was so pleasant and was completley honest with me .... he took lots of time discussing my options on size, possible lift and what was necessary and not necessary .... He even talked me outta lipo which he did not feel was necessary , which was much appreciated ,he could have made a lot more money. I would reccomend him to anyone . Everyone at the office was fantastic as well... Hands down wonderful doc and anything i need in the future will def be with him :)"- J.B. / Google / Aug 07, 2017
"Dr Chang is an amazing surgeon . The first time I saw him was after I had my daughter . I was able to get liposuction . I visited about 4 doctor before him in my area . Some had a bad vibe with they're expirance . One told me he advice me to wait till I finished having kids and do the tummy tuck with it in the future . One doctor wouldn't even talk to me because I had my daughter 7 month ago and wanted me to wait longer .even though I was back to prepreganant weight and didn't stretch much . I was very careful to not gain to much weight during pregnancy so I knew I'd be fine . Dr Chang told me I could get it done after waiting 9 month of having my baby , and the result were amazing !! I didn't sag I had my dream body . A better body then before I had my baby . It look incredible I loved it !! I think his judgement is good in weather to do a surgery or not . He is skilled and experience and he's prices reasonable for he's experience and work . And he has options as well with Lipo that other doctors won't give . After, I got preganant again and had my son . Again I went back for a tummy tuck now that I'm done having kids. Thanks to dr.chang I have the body of my dreams and I look amazing . His work looks very natural but my abdomanol is completely flat . Nobody knows unless I tell them I had things done . He is worth the money and he is worth visiting . I would have paid 15,000 for a tummy tuck in Reston with a few sections of Lipo but with Chang I paid 10,000 and that includes hospital and anestisia . Not to mention he is an amazing person and cares deeply about he's clients . According to the nurse in the hospital he is a good man as well, and she claims that "they don't make them like that anymore " . Lol you are in good hands if you choose dr. Chang as your doctor !! And I can garuntee you will go under with out geting anxious because he is skilled , experienced , and a good person who will take care of you because he cares !! I trust him w my life !!! And recommend family and loved ones to see him !"- L.L. / Google / Aug 07, 2017
"From the moment you walk in till you leave the staff here is amazing. Dr. Chang did a tummy tuck and liposuction on me only a week ago and I'm doing great. All my questions are answered and his staff are professional, engaging, and treat you as if your their friend and not just a patient. I give them 5 stars because this experience has been amazing and I would feel comfortable sending anyone here."- M.K. / Yelp / Feb 01, 2019
Fat removal surgery is a terrific treatment for those who are at an ideal weight, but have troublesome areas of fat that are difficult to rid with even the most healthy lifestyle. Women and men interested in liposuction should have healthy skin because liposuction is not a treatment for stretched-out skin. It's also important to know that liposuction is not a solution for weight loss. Females undergoing liposuction should have no plans to become pregnant again as this may compromise the lasting outcome. At the time of your consult for surgery, Dr. Chang will set realistic expectations.
This treatment is completed in an outpatient setting using general anesthesia. A punch-hole incision is placed through the skin so a cannula can be inserted. The cannula is a special tool that makes it easier to work loose the fatty tissue that is being vacuumed out. After the chosen amounts of fat have been eliminated, Dr. Phillip Chang will seal the small incision. Based on the number of sections being treated, your procedure may take several hours. In the separate area for recovery, your post-op nurse will assist you with managing any discomfort and look after your treated areas until you are discharged.
What to Expect
You may need to stay at home for recovery from liposuction surgery for several weeks based on the number of sections treated and the amount of fat removed. It's typical to have bruising and swelling for one or two weeks, and you should have stitches taken out 7 – 10 days after surgery. The most important thing to do following any surgery is to give your body time to recover and rest. When you decide to go back to your job after your surgery, you should remember to minimize stress and strenuous activity. To increase your strength and stamina, try walking and light workouts as recommended by Dr. Chang. Remember, you may notice some improvements soon after your surgery, but it will take around 6 – 10 months until your new body contour and shape is complete.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does liposuction cost?
The liposuction varies depending on the technique selected and how many areas are being treated. In your consultation, Dr. Chang will create your personal treatment plan to meet your needs and goals. He will also consider your budget. When your plan is ready, estimated costs will be discussed. To make your surgery easy to afford, Aesthetica Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center takes several payment methods and we will help you find low-interest financing.
What about nonsurgical liposuction?
There are several nonsurgical procedures to reduce body fat. Some popular brands are CoolSculpting, Vanquish, UltraShape, Kybella, and Liposonix. Although these nonsurgical procedures can help reduce mild to moderate fat pockets, surgical liposuction is best for most people. Liposuction surgery produces more dramatic and consistent results. Ask Dr. Chang about nonsurgical options in your consultation. He can explain the benefits of all your options and help you choose which is best for you.
What about cellulite and loose skin?
Liposuction surgery only corrects excess fat. For loose skin, Dr. Chang may recommend combining liposuction with a lift surgery. Lipo is often done along with skin tightening surgery, like a tummy tuck, thighplasty, or arm lift, to give you your best results. To correct cellulite, there are many minimally invasive and nonsurgical treatments, including VelaShape, Cellulaze, Venus Freeze, and VASER Shape. During your consultation, talk to Dr. Chang about your concerns like cellulite and loose skin so your best treatment plan is created.
Will I have scars?
Since liposuction is an invasive surgery, incisions will be made and sutured. This will cause scars; however, Dr. Chang does his best to reduce their appearance. This starts with making thin incisions in less visible areas or the natural folds of your body. After your surgery, Dr. Chang or a member of his team will teach you how to care for your incisions so they heal properly and fade.
Will my results last?
Before liposuction, it is important to be prepared to maintain your results. Although liposuction reduces the amount of fat cells in an area, you can still lose and gain weight. Dr. Chang suggests that you be at or close to a healthy weight prior to liposuction. Afterward, it's best to remain within 5 – 10 pounds of your post-surgical weight. Getting pregnant after liposuction will also alter your results; however, another surgery like a mommy makeover may be done to refresh your body.
