Christopher C. Lo, M.D.

Los Angeles’ Top Oculofacial Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Christopher C. Lo graduated from Harvard College with a Bachelors in Biology and Health Policy and earned his medical degree at Mount Sinai in New York City where he was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha (AOA) national medical honor society. After graduating, he completed his medical internship and ophthalmology residency at New York University and Manhattan Eye, Ear, and Throat Hospital, where he served as chief resident. Dr. Lo then moved to Los Angeles for fellowship training in oculofacial plastic surgery at UCLA’s Doheny and Jules Stein Eye Institutes. During his fellowship, he specialized in the eyelid, lacrimal, orbital, and reconstructive surgery. While at UCLA, he honed his facial cosmetic surgery skills at several top private practices in Beverly Hills. He is particularly interested in double eyelid surgery, facial reconstruction, and orbital surgery. Dr. Lo is board certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and a member of the prestigious American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS), an elite society of 500 members specializing in cosmetic surgery of the eyelids and face.

Dr. Lo is dedicated to service, teaching, and research. He founded a free eye clinic while in medical school and volunteered on an international surgical mission with the Virtue Foundation. He has taught at various facial and orbital surgery courses, lectured at domestic and international conferences, published in peer-reviewed medical journals, and authored several book chapters in medical textbooks. He has a teaching appointment and hospital privileges at the UCLA Doheny and Jules Stein Eye Institutes and the UCLA-Harbor Hospital, where he was awarded the Fellows Teaching Award in 2018. He is now involved in the ASOPRS-sponsored fellowship training program in oculofacial and cosmetic surgery at Eyesthetica.

A Pennsylvania native, Dr. Lo attended grade school in Taiwan and China before moving back to the United States for college. He enjoys distance running, music, and exploring the LA food scene. He is fluent in Mandarin and Cantonese and conversant in Spanish.

Featured Reviews

Dr Lo was very informative and i felt total confidence in him. I also felt at ease. I highly recommend him and the practice.
Dr. Lo has shown amazing care and attentiveness to my issue. I had Orbital Cellulitis and immediately he relieved a bit of the pain I was feeling and following a successful surgery performed by him and two others I fully regained vision in my right eye. The amount of professionalism and knowledge from Dr. Lo on the subject is 2nd to none and I am satisfied with service I received. Would highly recommend.
Dr. Lo is very knowledgeable and highly skilled. He listened to what I wanted and made recommendations based on what I told him. I’ve seen him twice now and have been very happy with the results!
Dr. Lo is the best! He did an incredible job at getting the results I wanted and pays very careful attention to detail. I am a very anxious person and Dr. Lo has always been very understanding, caring, and happy to answer all my questions. He always followed up with me after our visits to make sure I was happy with my results, and is just a delightful, upbeat person to work with. I would highly recommend him as a plastic surgeon to any new patient!
I’ve been going to Dr. Lo for a few years at this point and he’s absolutely amazing. I’m a fairly curious person so I tend to have a lot of questions and Dr. Lo is always patient and informative with me. I also very much appreciate his honesty. I’m constantly hearing about new treatments that friends SWEAR by and I will also ask Dr. Lo about them when I come in. He will always steer me in the right direction and tell me what’s actually worth trying. If you’re looking to not only work with an amazing doctor but also a great person, I recommend coming to Dr. Lo.
Dr Lo is amazing! His work speaks for itself, but what sets him apart is that he also approaches it with such diligence and care. I also appreciate that he takes the time to explain what’s going on as he’s doing it, making the whole experience far less stressful. Whatever your needs are, I highly recommend working with you if you have the opportunity.
I’ve never felt as comfortable or at ease as with Dr Lo! He took the time to fully explain all my options (in language I could understand) and talked me through everything he was doing. I couldn’t be happier with the results. I’ve seen Dr Lo three times now and couldn’t imagine going to anyone else. Highly recommend.
Dr. Lo is patient, kind and thoughtful. He makes sure to first have a thorough discussion to best understand what results you are hoping for and ensures that you are fully satisfied. He explains the procedure and his thought process well, and talks you through each of the steps so that you don’t ever feel worried or anxious. I’m very happy with the outcome and will definitely see him again on my next LA trip!
Dr. Lo consistently exceeds all expectations. He is thoughtful, attentive, and warm–he listens to your desires, encourages your questions and answers patiently and honestly, and skillfully delivers the results of your dreams. His work is flawless and so natural; I always walk out looking and feeling like myself, but better. My visits with Dr. Lo are the easiest, most relaxing experiences I’ve ever had with a doctor. Whatever your needs are, I cannot recommend Dr. Lo enough!
