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 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 written and spoken Mandarin and Cantonese and conversant in Spanish.
