View Journal Article By Spero J. Theodorou & Christopher T. Chia


Dr. Christopher T. Chia is a fellowship-trained aesthetic plastic surgeon who holds dual certifications from the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery. As former Program Director of the Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Fellowship at the Manhattan Eye, Ear & Throat Hospital, he was involved in teaching aesthetic surgery to future leaders in plastic surgery. After compiling one of the largest series of patients in the greater metropolitan area, Dr. Chia currently serves as the Surgical Director of bodySCULPT®, an all-inclusive plastic surgery practice in Manhattan, NYC. He offers the minimally invasive procedure using BodyTiteTM (radio-frequency assisted liposuction) at bodySCULPT's plastic surgery practice in Manhattan, New York City.

Dr. Chia believes radio-frequency assisted liposuction is at the leading edge of surgical technology where patients can benefit from fat removal and skin enhancement with minimal scarring and downtime while avoiding traditional anesthesia. It has also proven to be an extremely safe procedure when performed by experienced personnel in the right facility. Most return to work within 36 hours of the procedure and resume their daily activities. In addition to body contouring, he specializes in aesthetic procedures of the face and breast. Dr. Chia is also active in teaching, participates in conferences and publishes articles pertaining to current issues in plastic surgery. Dr. Chia is the Section Editor for the Emerging Technologies for the prestigious Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Journal.
