5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction - Scheduled for Tomorrow - San Francisco, CA

UPDATE: Dr. Carolyn Chang is the best. I am now over 4 weeks post op and cannot express how thrilled I am with the results. I have had ZERO back pain since the moment I woke up from surgery - that alone is life changing. What i had not counted on was how beautiful my new breasts would be! I'm amazed every time I look down! In addition to her incredible skill as a surgeon, her pre and post op care (and that of her staff) was amazing. I had my first post op appointment the day after surgery, and one every 2 - 3 days until I was ready to fly home. Dr. Chang and her staff were committed to not only ensuring I had excellent results, but that my post op care was perfect - she or her nurse saw me regularly to ensure that there any issues were caught and dealt with quickly. I had no complications (thus far, fingers crossed!) but I thought it was extremely conscientious that she and her staff never waited for a phone call from me but were proactive to ensure they monitored me every few days and saw me in person to make sure everything was proceeding as expected. In addition, both Dr. Chang and her staff were warm and kind and made me feel right at home. In addition, their insurance team is fantastic and will negotiate all the ins and outs of the process (I never spoke with my insurance company a single time!) If I ever needed anything else done, without a doubt, I would go see Dr. Chang. ORIGINAL: Fantastic pre-op experience thus far. Dr. Chang is clearly an amazing surgeon and highly respected, but she os also kind, understanding, and put me at ease (I was very nervous). She clearly explained the procedure, ensured my exoectations were in line with reality, and overall made me feel as if I was in very good hands. I will update more after surgery. Office staff (patient coordinator and insurance team) are also fantastic.

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

53 Y.o. , After Surgery I Look Like I'm in my Early 40s!! San Francisco, CA

I finally decided it was time to do something about my aging face, I looked like I was in my late fifties on the outside, but felt 40 on the inside. I met with two other surgeons and decided on Dr. Chang after seeing her before and after photos and well as the result of one of my friends who had a facelift with her. I felt very comfortable with my whole experience, she is extremely...

40 Years Old and Have Wanted TT, BL for 13 Years!!! - San Francisco, CA

I finally have booked my TT/BL surgery and have paid the deposit!!!!

15 Days Before Surgery! Breast Lift with Implants. - San Francisco, CA

Dr. Carolyn Chang's office has been absolutely professional and top-notch. Her approach is very conservative and minimalist. She spent a good amount of time with me at the first consultation and did not rush through it. The photos she showed me where picked because they were relevant to my body shape and desired result, versus the huge binder I was handed at other offices. At my second consult/pre-op, I was able to meet another patient who was 8 weeks post-op and see first-hand how good Dr. Chang’s work really is. Dr. Chang's staff has been in contact with me via email during this whole process and have been very sweet and helpful.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Beautiful Breast Augmentation Work - San Francisco

Dr. C was extremely thorough from the first consultation through my actual breast augmentation surgery. She took the time to answer all my questions, and I never felt rushed. Her staff were great and I knew I was in good hands at all times. I am very happy with my results!
