Cheri A Ong, MD, FACS | Scottsdale Plastic Surgeon
Cheri A. Ong, MD, FACS is a board certified plastic surgeon for over 15 years by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery with a practice currently located in Scottsdale AZ.
Dr. Ong’s expertise is in solving both external and internal vaginal issues. She is highly skilled at separating which issues are surgical (making the vagina more aesthetically pleasing) and which non-surgical (issues such as dryness, arousal, and sensation).
In her practice, Dr. Ong uses different modalities and combination treatments in order to help women optimize their health.
Known for helping women navigate their vaginal insecurities and in turn allowing them to better connect with themselves and others, Dr. Ong combines surgery with regenerative and non-surgical treatment modalities. Her approach enhances function and showcases existing inner beauty, which then brings her clients improved self-confidence as well as more satisfying sex lives.
A Leader in Women’s Health
As a passionate advocate for women’s health, Dr. Ong continually strives to push the bar for excellence in her plastic surgery outcomes. Differentiating herself from other plastic surgeons, she approaches reconstruction as a continuum in life.
A Continual Student
Dr. Ong is actively engaged in educating herself on the newest innovations and procedures focused on female rejuvenation.
She has vast experience in radio frequency technology, being one of the first 30 physicians in the world to adopt and utilize THERMIRF™ technology in skin tightening. Today, she uses that experience to treat patients in conjunction with liposuction as temperature controlled specific skin tightening to further exceed the results obtained from liposuction alone.
Dr. Ong was the first surgeon in the state of Arizona to learn, use and refine THERMIVA™. She is recognized as a pioneer on the leading edge of female rejuvenation. Her extensive training and years of experience working with the initial rollout of the THERMIRF™ temperature radio-frequency device helped to create effective, safe and solution-oriented results.
A Thoughtful Listener
After active engagement with each patient, a carefully detailed treatment plan utilizing functional medicine begins prior to surgery and continues well beyond the procedure. She utilizes nutrition, supplements and other proven tools based on her knowledge and experience to achieve excellent outcomes.
An Empathetic Creative Mind
As a plastic surgeon, Dr. Ong understands the emotional impact that these profound changes can have, and she makes it her priority to devote the time to understand your lifestyle and desired outcome and goals to determine what procedures are right for you.
An Integrative Teamwork Approach

A Passionate Soul

As a woman, Dr. Ong understands the emotional impact plastic surgery can have, and she makes it her priority to spend time getting to know you and your lifestyle and plastic surgery goals to determine what procedures may be best for you.
