RIVERSIDE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 06/19/12 -- Dr. Christopher Chung and his Riverside plastic surgery practice, Renaissance Aesthetic Surgery, have recently announced the grand opening of a new facility and operatory suite to help offer patients the highest level of comfort and care possible. Dr. Chung says the new facility provides his practice with a number of new opportunities for improving the cosmetic enhancement process and creating a more pleasant surgical experience for his patients. He says he is excited about the new surgical center and hopes its enhanced features allow patients to rest assured they are being treated with the utmost in technology and safety, regardless of whether they are looking for liposuction in Riverside or a simple BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment.
As a board-certified plastic surgeon in Riverside, Dr. Chung focuses on a wide variety of surgical and non-surgical aesthetic procedures at his practice ranging from breast surgery to facial rejuvenation. Following the recent opening of his surgical facility, he says he is better equipped and staffed to address a number of concerns patients may have about their appearance from consultation to recovery. Dr. Chung says being able to perform his surgical procedures on-site at the office has significant benefits for the comfort of his patients and he is looking forward to helping them restore beauty and confidence to their lives in the new center.
"There are many advantages to having an on-site, fully accredited surgery center by the AAAASF. First is the convenience factor for the patient in knowing that everything from the initial consultation to the surgery is all done at one site, under full control by the surgeon. This allows for increased scheduling flexibility to better accommodate the patient. Secondly, the center's staffing is personally hand-picked by the surgeon, thereby, allowing for increased attention to the particular needs of the patient which cannot be met as well by an outside facility -- which has to accommodate to numerous doctors and different disciplines of medicine -- i.e., far more specialization can be attained at an on-site center. And lastly, improved cost containment can be achieved, which in turn can be passed on to the patient, as facility fees are often less at on-site centers as compared to outside third party centers. And of course, achieving accreditation by the AAAASF ensures that the highest standard in outpatient surgery center is obtained to maximize uncompromising safety for the patient," says Dr. Chung.
Dr. Chung says his office uses state-of-the-art equipment and employs a skilled surgical team. Through careful attention from Dr. Chung, board-certified Emergency Medicine Physician Dr. Nancy Chung, a board-certified anesthesiologist, and an experienced surgical nursing staff, he says patients will be able to receive uncompromising levels of safety and dedicated commitment: "One of the most exciting offerings by our facility is the services of Dr. Nancy Chung. Dr. Nancy Chung is a board-certified Emergency Medicine physician who will be serving as the Director of Perioperative Services. As such, Dr. Nancy Chung will personally oversee every surgical patient's recovery at our center. In virtually all other centers, this role is designated to a nurse. Of course, well-trained nurses are very capable of performing this duty, but having three physicians (Emergency Medicine physician, Plastic surgeon, and Anesthesiologist) attending to every surgical patient should be an added comfort to most patients. Technologically, we are offering laser assisted liposuction. Laser technology has progressed significantly since its inception and has enhanced liposuction outcome with its improved fat emulsification and skin tightening properties. In last couple of years, more than a thousand patients have been treated with laser assisted liposuction with much success."
Dr. Chung says he hopes the new facility will display both the passion he has for his patients and the emphasis he has placed on pursuing the most advanced treatments possible. He adds that undergoing any surgical procedure, be it facial rejuvenation or breast augmentation in Riverside, is a serious decision and he strongly urges patients to select a practice who has the proper credentials and experience before considering treatment.
"I am excited to bring to Inland Empire the latest in cosmetic surgery advancements. Over the course of last ten years of specializing in cosmetic plastic surgery, I have acquired many skills from various master plastic surgeons from Los Angeles to Seattle. Thousands of patients later, I am most happy to be bringing back home everything I have mastered to the Inland Empire. I very much look forward to serving the wonderful communities that I call home," he says.
