Meet Dr. Hsu
Dr. Charles S. Hsu is a board-certified plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills that specializes in plastic surgery of the face, breast and body. He has received an education from two world-renowned schools, including Harvard University and Stanford University. His boutique Beverly Hills plastic surgery practice puts an emphasis on high-quality surgery that aims to rejuvenate an individual’s appearance, while at the same time providing a level of compassion and care that is rare in our city.
Dr. Hsu's Philosophy
The decision to have plastic surgery is a personal one. A big part of this decision is finding a surgeon with whom you can trust as well as feel comfortable regarding his or her credentials, training, experience, and character. After having the honor of learning from and working alongside some of the finest plastic surgeons in the country, Dr. Hsu decided that the best plastic surgeons take special care to fully understand all aspects of a patient’s life before making any recommendations.
A Tailored Approach
Besides health and anatomy, Dr. Hsu takes into consideration his patients individual concerns, personalities, and lifestyles. There is no “one-size-fits-all” approach, even for the most common procedures. Dr. Hsu’s belief that “less is more” is applied to all patients. In fact, there are times he believes surgery is not necessary, and he is very comfortable telling his patients this. Conversely, there are times when a surgical procedure is the best option. There is a balance, and that is where good judgment is needed. This has worked well for his patients, with gorgeous and natural results, and happy outcomes.
Specialties and Skills
Dr. Hsu focuses his boutique Beverly Hills plastic surgery practice on cosmetic breast surgery, body contouring, and facial rejuvenation. This includes breast augmentation, breast lift and breast reduction surgery, Mommy Makeover surgery, tummy tuck, liposuction, facelift and rhinoplasty surgery. For men and women who have lost an incredible amount of weight, he is specialized to perform after weight loss surgery, which is skin removal and skin tightening to help patients complete their life-changing transformation. His Beverly Hills practice also offers a complete MedSpa where skin rejuvenation procedures such as facial fillers, BOTOX, laser and chemical peels are performed which provides patients with a softer glow without having surgery.
Education and Training
Originally from southern California, Dr. Hsu earned his undergraduate and medical degrees from Harvard Medical School. He then completed his plastic surgery internship and residency at Stanford University Medical Center. He is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, the only board recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties in plastic surgery.
