Breast Augmentation and Baltimore, Maryland Body Contouring

There are plenty of reasons to choose cosmetic surgery near Baltimore, Maryland, but each patient’s motivations and goals are a little different. At Columbia Aesthetic, we understand that. For you to enjoy truly unique results, Dr. Chang tailors his consultations and surgeries around individual motivations and goals. Because of his specialized training and individual approach, his patients’ results often exceed even their own high expectations.

  • Breast Augmentation near Baltimore, Maryland has long been one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures. It gives women the ability to increase breast size, restore a fuller volume, or improve the look of asymmetrical breasts. Whatever your goals, Dr. Chang will work with you to refine your surgical plan and create a personalized solution.
  • Smartlipo MPX™ offers liposuction patients a high-tech option to enjoy more precise results and a more comfortable recovery. The MPX system’s dual laser energy allows for smoother fat removal while making it possible for surrounding skin to tighten, sculpting a firmer, slimmer appearance.
  • Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty) allows Maryland women and men to tone their midsection by removing excess tissue and tightening loose abdominal muscles. In many cases tummy tucks are combined with liposuction to remove excess fat. The result is a slimmer waist and firmer, flatter tummy that looks more toned.

In many cases, one of these procedures alone will be enough to create the shape you want, but for post-weight-loss and post-pregnancy patients, combination approaches offer advanced ways to create more complete and complementary results.

What Are My Breast Implant Options?

Columbia and Baltimore breast enhancement patients have plenty of options to help ensure accurate results, and Dr. Chang has years of experience offering clear, helpful guidance to help patients through the process of making choices including:

  • Implant type (saline or silicone gel)
  • Implant volume and shape
  • Incisions (around the areola, under the breast, in the armpit)
  • Implant placement (behind breast tissue or below breast muscle)

If you are considering breast enlargement, Dr. Chang will explain each of these options at your consultation and suggest the most appropriate one for you based on your goals and body type. Dr. Chang strives to stay at the forefront of the most advanced techniques for creating breasts that look and feel natural, and he will adapt the procedure depending on your tissue type and whether you are receiving additional procedures such as a breast lift or Baltimore area abdominoplasty.

Top Non-Surgical Facial Treatments

Dr. Chang offers extensive options for facial surgery, ranging from full-scale face and neck lift to the minimally invasive MACS face lift and nonsurgical procedures. In addition to brow lift, eyelid surgery, nose reshaping, and ear surgery, Dr. Chang offers up-to-date skin treatments including:

  • BOTOX® Cosmetic
  • Injectable dermal fillers
  • OBAGI® skin care system
  • Laser services

Many patients will choose to combine facial treatments or pair nonsurgical procedures, and they trust Dr. Chang’s extensive experience to help them determine the best approach to help them look and feel more energized and refreshed.
