Tae Chong, MD

Tae Chong, MD is a board-certified plastic surgeon at UCHealth in Aurora, Colorado. His clinical focus is on providing advanced techniques to reconstruct and restore patients’ physical appearance and well-being after traumatic injuries or cancer surgery.

Dr. Chong has specialized expertise in treating patients in need of aesthetic reconstruction after breast cancer. He offers autologous (free flap) breast reconstruction such as the DIEP flap, which uses a woman’s own tissue taken from the abdomen to recreate breasts.

Dr. Chong also offers Resensation® to women who have had mastectomy and are undergoing breast reconstruction using the DIEP flap or other free flap reconstruction. Resensation is a surgical technique performed during free flap reconstruction that has the potential to restore sensation by reconnecting nerves in the chest with those in the tissue used to recreate breasts.
