"Dr. Chang and the whole office staff made my experience the best ever. My results were better than I expected and look completely natural. He explained everthing and is caring and kind. The staff is by far the nicest group of people ever and Dr. Chang is meticulous."


“I had a child in 2003. In 2010, I still wasn’t happy with my “mom body.” I would diet and exercise, but the excess skin on my tummy and around my midsection wouldn’t go away. Also, my breasts were like deflated balloons after the breastfeeding. I did tons of research with many doctors across the country before realizing that the best doctor was right in the state I was living. The consultation and all appointments were wonderful. I felt completely comfortable and relaxed with Dr. Thornton and everyone in the office. I trusted them 100%. My surgery was done in March of 2011. In January of 2012, I got pregnant with my second child. I went to Dr. Thornton right away and voiced my concerns about the possibility of breastfeeding after my breast augmentation and to see if the work he did with my tummy tuck and liposuction was all going to be undone. I’m happy to say that not only was there absolutely no problem with breastfeeding, but I actually got my pre-pregnancy body back about 2 months after having my daughter. I look even better now than I did in my post-op photos on the website.

To sum it all up, my youngest child will be 2 in October. I’m 33 years old and, as of this morning, I have a 26 inch waist, a 32H bra size, and weigh 104 pounds. After giving birth to 2 children (10 years apart), this is the best I’ve ever looked in my entire life. I can not stress this enough: It is all thanks to Dr. Thornton and his team. I have not exercised or even step foot inside of a gym AT ALL since my surgery in March of 2011. Not even after having my daughter in October of 2012. So I could only imagine what results anyone else could have if they put ANY effort into their post op results.”


“For years, I have wanted a breast augmentation. I would use padded bras or shirts that didn’t draw attention to my flat chest. I was very self conscious about my appearance. Finally, my husband convinced me that if it bothered me that much, I should at least get a consult for breast implants. On my first visit to Advanced Plastic Surgery Center, my first impression was how beautiful their Newark, Delaware location was. They had a room specifically for breast enhancement. My consult put me at ease. I decided to have it done and two weeks later I was scheduled. This summer was the first summer I have worn a bathing suit and felt confident. I am so glad that I had breast augmentation done and thank my husband for supporting me and encouraging me. I am very grateful to my plastic surgeon for giving me the results that look and feel natural!”

The staff was wonderful and caring at my pre-op and post-op appointments and Dr. Chang had great bedside manner during my surgery day. I could not have been happier with my choice in choosing Dr. Chang to be my surgeon. I have never felt better with my look as I do now!”

"I got the best birthday gift – a gift certicate to Nouveau.  My best friend gave it to me and raved about Nouveau Medispa so I was excited.   When I got to Nouveau Medispa, I was greeted and even toured the facility and then I received the best facial I ever had.  I felt like a queen for the day and my skin looked glowing.  Thank you for making my birthday so special!"  Donna G.


“I have dieted and exercised but still had areas that seemed resistant to any changes. It was so frustrating to see areas of my body shrink but my thighs and hips stay exactly the same. I decided to entertain liposuction and met with the doctor. The doctor reviewed my options and I felt totally comfortable knowing that liposuction was a great choice for me personally. I had surgery last winter and for the first time didn’t wear a coverup this summer. I am so happy with my results and would recommend liposuction to anyone.”

First Testimonial


“I always exercised and ate well, but had a buldge and extra skin after having children. Decided to have abdominoplasty and I am thrilled. My stomach is flatter now than ever. My clothes fit well and I am very confident in a bathing suit.”

“I have had a “belly” since I was a teen. After having 2 children and three surgeries through incision on my abdomen, I didn’t look very fit. Since I continue to be quite active I could see it was useless to try to exercise to success. Fortunantely, I look so improved my clothes fit and I am as active as ever.”

“With my first pregnacy I gained 75 pounds which stretched my skin beyond repair. I had stretch marks that looked like a tiger clawed his way up my stomach. I did lose most of the weight which left unwanted skin. A lot of unwanted skin! Then it happened again with the second pregnacy I gained 79 pounds, but this time the weight didn’t come off. I exercised and exercised and there was nothing I could do. That’s when I met Dr. Chang, he changed the way I felt about myself. I can now wear things that I couldn’t before or I’m not sqeezing my fat into Spanx (everyones nightmare). I am completely happy with my results. Thank you so much Dr. Chang & Staff I love it!”
