About The Practice

Dr. Allan Wu is a fellowship trained General Cosmetic Surgeon and Diplomate of The American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, The American Board of Facial Cosmetic Surgery and Fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery.  He is also a Full Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.  He has dual training in General Surgery and OBGYN and is internationally recognized as an innovator in facial, body and intimate regeneration, rejuvenation and cosmetic surgery. He is routinely requested to speak at both national and international cosmetic and plastic surgery conferences.  His basic and clinical science research has lead to several issued patents and devices brought to market under his supervision.  He is known for inventing and developing “The Bubble Lift”, a minimally invasive method of facial and body lifting with autologous fat and stem cells.  His innovative approach to abdominoplasty in major weight loss patients was published in the prestigious Aesthetic Surgery Journal.

He serves as Medical Director for Medweight and Lasers and the Chief of Surgery for Revive Wellness Centers and is a devoted educator as clinical adjunct professor at UC, San Diego and Riverside (Stem Cell Research Center) and has served as a proctor for the National Cosmetic Surgery Boards for the last 4 years.  Through his three cosmetic practices in Southern California, he is able to deliver superior cosmetic surgery results whether the case is a major surgery or minimally invasive and he employs all forms of energy modalities and devices such as hair restoration, RF, laser, IPL, micro-needle RF, cryo-ablation.  Dr. Wu’s goal for patients is to listen very carefully to their needs and achieve natural cosmetic results with minimal or no scars and minimal down-time at honest and fair pricing.
