Why Choose a Female Plastic Surgeon

Many women find it easier to speak openly with other women when it comes to discussing their personal cosmetic goals. This level of comfort sets Dr. Champion apart from male surgeons in the area. A female Newport Beach plastic surgeon has a more keen and intimate grasp of a woman’s struggles and desires. Two of the most important areas she can relate to are the physical changes caused by aging and motherhood, as well as the societal pressures to uphold a beautiful appearance no matter how busy life gets. Like many of her patients, Dr. Champion is a working professional and mother. Shared experiences and a female intuition give her a leading edge as one of Newport Beach’s most respected plastic surgeons.

A Feminine Touch

Dr. Champion offers her female patients a feminine perspective in all aspects of treatment. She understands the concerns many women develop as they age and their bodies change, having experienced this firsthand. Further, she strives to answer all questions honestly and help patients understand what cosmetic treatments can realistically achieve. Understanding that women today lead busy lives, Dr. Champion educates patients not only on the results that are possible, but also on the downtime and aftercare considerations needed to prepare for surgery.

As a female plastic surgeon in Newport Beach, Dr. Champion has a unique advantage to serve her patient’s needs. While many male surgeons are capable of providing excellent results, a female surgeon’s touch often helps patients feel at ease as they embark on their cosmetic enhancement journey. Dr. Champion’s approach to her practice is informed by the many challenging and rewarding roles she takes on as a wife, mother, friend, and surgeon. It’s her goal to combine empathy with honesty and her level of expertise to help her patients achieve their goals. Empowering patients to look and feel like the best version of themselves, while staying true to who they are, is the cornerstone of her practice.

Comfort is Key

Feeling comfortable with your plastic surgeon is just as important as medical credentials and skills. In addition to her many years of doctoral experience and board-certification in plastic surgery, Dr. Champion strives to be one of the best plastic surgeons Newport Beach has to offer by developing an authentic relationship with every patient that she meets. Building a partnership based on understanding and mutual respect leads to better surgical outcomes.

When patients are able to share their aesthetic goals in a comfortable and safe space free of judgment, their plastic surgeon is better able to customize a surgical plan to achieve the patient’s individual definition of beauty. Dr. Champion aims to create a customized plan for each patient that is tailored to their unique desires and needs. Combined with a comforting bedside manner and decades of training, she provides best-in-class patient care in Newport Beach, California.

Looking and Feeling Your Best

Dr. Champion deeply understands the importance of having an appearance that matches how you feel on the inside. While there are limits to what plastic surgery can achieve, most everyone can agree that making small physical improvements can provide a steppingstone to increased confidence and getting more out of life. It’s important to understand that taking care of your appearance is not superficial. Whether it necessitates cosmetic surgery or a non-surgical enhancement, subtle improvements can go a long way toward creating the life you’ve envisioned for yourself. Additionally, when you take care of yourself, you’re better able to take care of others.
