Patient Comments (4)
Dr Chang performed upper eyelid surgery on me, with a very poor result. Long after my healing should have been finished, I still had an ugly scar just above the fold of my left eyelid. Dr Chang said it was jut a bit of extra skin, and removed it in his office. Now, over 2 years later, I still have a horrible scar/raised bump on my eyelid. I have not returned to Dr Chang for a second revision, given how poorly he performed the first correction.

Dr. Chang was very attentive and listened to all my questions. Great bedside manner and I am very happy with the Botox and filler that I received. I would definitely go back to see him.

I had my original upper blepharoplasty performed in March 2015 by Dr. Chang with devastating results. Not only were my eyelids completely asymmetric after the surgery, but I had severe pain in the inner corners of my eyes immediately following the surgery with very poor healing. The scars were very think and inflamed and created a band like pull towards the inner part of the eye, directionally towards the nose. I was told that I just have bad healing, and hypertrophic scarring by Dr. Chang.
