Over time, the body begins to show signs of age. From sagging skin, to post pregnancy changes, to facial changes, sometimes the body needs a little attention. As a plastic surgeon, Dr. Christine A. Cheng understands what it takes to help regain the confidence possessed of another time.

Dr. Cheng provides body contouring, breast augmentation surgery, head, neck, and reconstructive surgery in Salt Lake City and Bountiful, UT.

Body Contouring

After a major weight loss the skin doesn’t snap back like it used to. This can lead to sagging or excess skin. Body contouring removes the excess skin while restoring the underlying supportive tissue. We perform:

  • Ultrasound-assisted Liposuction: This procedure establishes more normal proportions between ar-eas of body. It helps body contour irregularities due to localized accumulations of fat.
  • Thigh Lift: This process removes excess skin and fatty tissue from the medial thigh.
  • Tummy Tuck: Remove excess skin and fat, while tightening and repairing abdominal wall separations.
  • Upper Arm Lift: Designed to reduce sagging skin and tighten the tissue that supports upper arm shape.
  • Lower Body Lift: Frequently preformed after significant weight loss.

Breast Surgery

Regain confidence by augmenting your breasts with implants in Salt Lake City and Bountiful, UT. Whether you would like to regain the fullness you had before weight loss or pregnancy, or to enhance your self-image, Dr. Cheng understands your wishes.

  • Breast Lift: This procedure is to correct loss of fullness with sagging which sometimes follows pregnancy or excessive weight loss. It helps to establish normal position of the breasts and possibly improve size and contour.
  • Cosmetic Breast Reduction: To help with a heavy and uncomfortable shape
  • Breast Augmentation: Provides for women who have failed to develop fullness or size, lost size or fullness following pregnancy or significant weight loss, or one breast is smaller than the other.
  • Breast Implant Removal: Often done in conjunction with placing in new implants, Dr. Cheng can remove implants.

We also treat Gynecomastia, which is an enlargement of a man’s breasts.

Head and Neck Surgery

Over time, the skin and connective tissue around the neck and face can weaken, leaving your skin to wrinkle, droop, and sag. We can help with these changes with head and neck surgery and minimally invasive procedures.

  • BOTOX Cosmetic: Injection used to improve the appearance of wrinkles and temporary relief of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows.
  • Ear Pinning Surgery: This procedure is to correct prominent ears or ear malformations. It usually involves changing the skin and cartilage of the ear.
  • Eyelid Surgery: This procedure is to correct sagging tissue of lids, bulging (bags), some wrinkles (not all) and occasionally improved field of vision.
  • Facelift: This procedure puts skin back to the proportion that it was when you were younger. It usually helps the lower face and neck more than the upper face. It will improve some wrinkles but not all and may improve contour.
  • Juvederm & Filler Injections: Smooth wrinkles and folds around the mouth and nose by injecting gel into the facial tissue.

In addition to these procedures we also offer:

  • Forehead Lift
  • Cosmetic Surgery
