Brian Hwang, M.D.

Dr. Brian Hwang is a board-certified Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon, Diplomate of the American Board of Plastic Surgery, specializing in Aesthetic Surgery of the buttocks, body, breast, and nose.

Dr. Hwang attended Lehigh University in Pennsylvania for his undergraduate degree, on a music scholarship for violin. It was there that he first realized he can meld both of his passions in art and science, and he would discover much later that the symbiosis of science and artistry would continue to be the driving force for his interest in Aesthetic Plastic Surgery to this day. After moving to Chicago to attend Chicago Medical School, Dr. Hwang then completed a full 7-year residency in General Surgery at New York Presbyterian-Queens, which included dedicated research in plastic and reconstructive surgery at the University of Southern California. This time in research led to multiple publications and presentations at national meetings. He then achieved admission into a 3-year Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship program at the prestigious Duke University Medical Center, which has consistently been ranked as one of the top 10 medical centers in the nation. He was privileged to be trained by world-renowned leaders in plastic surgery as well as work alongside top-notch colleagues. After serving as the Chief Resident, his keen attention to detail and passion for aesthetic surgery led him to further expand his skills with top Los Angeles aesthetic surgeons at Beverly Hills Physicians, where he completed an additional fellowship in Aesthetic Surgery.

The philosophy of Dr. Brian Hwang’s approach is centered around each patient. He believes that understanding each patient’s desires, lifestyle, and expectations for surgery is absolutely crucial in devising the most optimal surgical plan bespoke to each patient. Communication is at the crux of each and every interaction, and Dr. Hwang’s calm and humble Californian demeanor naturally assists in fostering that. His hope is not only for each patient to recover seamlessly from surgery, but also to walk away living more fulfilling lives. In his spare time, Dr. Hwang enjoys spending time with his wife Dr. Marlene Kalouyan, who is an OB/GYN in West Hills, CA, and their daughter.

I hope that you and your families have stayed healthy and well during this difficult time. We want to thank all of the essential workers that provided us with critical services during this period and also to all of you that remained at home preventing the further spread of the virus.

As we re-open our facilities our priority remains the safety and well being of our patients and staff. To that end, we have implemented a number of important safety measures at all of our facilities.

  2. Only those individuals that pass the screening will be allowed into the facility.
  3. Patients can only bring 1 other person with them to the appointment.
  4. All patients (and caregivers) need to wear a mask while in the facility. Please bring a cloth or other mask with you to the appointment.
  5. Physical distancing will be in effect in the office waiting room and throughout the office.
  6. Once the physical distance capacity has been reached in the waiting room, patients will be asked to wait in their vehicles and will be called to come in at their appointment time.
  7. All surfaces in the office will be cleaned and disinfected at least on an hourly basis.
  8. All patient rooms will be cleaned and disinfected after each patient use.
