I met Professor Chung at the spring conference of the Taiwanese Dermatological Association in 2014. I started to feel interested about autologous fat grafting. At that time, no doctor at my former department was doing that surgery. So I asked for his approval to visit his office in Yonsei University Hospital in Seoul. He suggested me to attend the Eastern Asian Dermatological Conference in Jeju Island first, then to visit his office as a combo trip. It was a fantastic idea! I shadowed his procedures, including energy based device treatments, scar revision, fat grafting, liposuction, and Mohs surgery for sure. I visited his office again in 2015 following a cadaver workshop held by Professor Hee-Jin Kim of Yonsei University. I always remember his generosity as treating all his staff dinner after a tiring day of work! Although he is a world renowned professor and researcher, he is so humble and nice toward every patient.
We have met and participated together on several occasions in both US and non-US venues. I enjoy his humor and inspirations so much! Subsequently, he approved several visiting physicians from my former department and other hospitals in Taiwan unconditionally. I believe a man who is interested in birdwatching and stargazing is someone who has a kind soul.
Professor Chung is one of the International Traveling Mentors of the Amerian Society for Dermatologic Surgery. Inspired by his great work, I was nominated by the founder of International Traveling Mentor Program, Professor Lawrence Field, to join the same program. Hopefully we can contribute to education together in the near future!
