Plastic Surgery Q & A

What different types of plastic surgery procedures do you offer?

At OasisMD, recognized plastic surgeon, Dr. Chao specializes in a wide range of cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery. Some of these include:


This cosmetic procedure removes excess fat from parts of your body like your stomach, thighs, back, arms, or neck. 

Many practices use a highly invasive suction technique for liposuction procedures, but OasisMD offers VASER® (vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance) technology to breakdown fat cells using ultrasound frequency waves. 

Unlike traditional liposuction which is an invasive procedure that can be quite painful, VASER is a noninvasive liposuction technique that improves your contours and can also provide better muscle definition.

Cosmetic facelift

A facelift is a cosmetic procedure that improves the appearance of your face by reducing visible signs of aging like wrinkles, fine lines, creases, and loose skin.

Laser therapy

OasisMD offers the latest in laser technology to perform skin resurfacing to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation that results from aging.

Mommy makeover

A mommy makeover is a combination of plastic surgery procedures designed to restore the shape and appearance of your body after childbirth. Mommy makeovers can include breast and buttock augmentation, liposuction, tummy tucks, and vaginal revitalization. 

Using the latest technology in the field of plastic surgery, the surgeons at OasisMD combine their knowledge and artistic skill to help you look your best. 

What is the procedure for breast augmentations?

OasisMD offers breast augmentation surgical procedures to increase the size, shape, and fullness of your breasts. 

At your initial consultation, your surgeon examines your breasts and discusses your medical history and expectations for the procedure. 

The team can explain the advantages of different types of breast implants like silicone or gummy bear implants, and make recommendations for the size and shape of your enhanced breasts.

Based on your consultation, your surgeon provides you with a quote for your breast augmentation and schedules your procedure for the next available time.

Are plastic surgery procedures covered by insurance?

Most plastic surgery isn’t covered by insurance providers, but with OasisMD’s oncoplastic specialty, some plastic surgery procedures can be classified as a reconstructive procedure that may be covered by your insurance plan.

For example, breast augmentations are generally considered a cosmetic procedure, but if you have breast cancer that requires a lumpectomy or mastectomy, the surgery used to repair and restore your breasts after is a reconstructive procedure.
