We had the good fortune of connecting with Dr. Catherine Chang and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Dr. Catherine, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?

I believe starting my own practice has been one of the biggest milestones of my career thus far. In Spring 2022, I opened my plastic surgery practice, Privé at Beverly Hills and it has been such an amazing and rewarding journey so far! I am so grateful that I am able to positively impact my patients lives and uphold my commitment to providing the highest level of concierge patient care while delivering beautiful, natural results.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?

Privé Beverly Hills is my aesthetic medical practice that offers luxurious, concierge-oriented cosmetic procedures. At Privé Beverly Hills, we strive to offer the most luxurious, comfortable atmosphere and a VIP patient experience. We are dedicated to helping patients achieve their most beautiful, natural results possible. 

My surgical and beauty philosophy known as NakedBeauty MD is dedicated to empowering my patients to feel confident, radiant, and beautiful in their own skin without the need for makeup, Photoshop, or filters. To achieve this, I customize every aspect of every treatment to my patients’ unique needs. 

The road to starting any business is not always easy but I have an incredible support system to help guide me! I am so proud of my accomplishments and my practice. It’s an honor to have such incredibly supportive patients, colleagues and team members. I am truly looking forward to the growth and expansion of our brand and services in the future.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?

I am an avid surfer and foodie! There is nothing more relaxing than spending my weekends at the beaches of Los Angeles. 

Malibu and Santa Monica are my two personal favorite places to unwind, catch some waves and grab a delicious healthy breakfast or lunch.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?

I would like to give a shoutout to my colleague, Dr. Michael J. Yaremchuk with whom I co-authored the textbook Atlas of Facial Implants on craniofacial surgery and facial implants. The book brings readers fully up-to-date with the changes in craniofacial surgery and offers authoritative coverage of both aesthetic and reconstructive applications of alloplastic implants for recontouring the craniofacial skeleton. Over the past decade, tremendous innovations in technology, clinical applications, and implant design have transformed the field of facial implant surgery, leading to improved outcomes and greater patient satisfaction.
