“Together we can form a new beginning.”

Dr. Cindy Wu considers it a privilege to offer aesthetic and reconstructive surgery tailored to meet her individual patients’ needs. She prides herself on being attentive to her patients’ goals and customizing their treatment plans to bring their inner beauty to the surface.



Dr. Wu specializes in aesthetic and breast surgery. She is board certified in plastic surgery by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and in general surgery by the American Board of Surgery. She completed an aesthetic and breast fellowship endorsed by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery with the world-renowned reconstructive and aesthetic surgeon, Dr. James C. Grotting. Prior to that, she graduated from plastic surgery residency at the University of North Carolina and from general surgery residency at the University of Chicago.

Her specialties include breast augmentation, reduction, lift, implant and tissue-based reconstruction, as well as fat grafting, facial surgery, liposuction, body contouring, and labiaplasty. She also performs non-surgical facial rejuvenation, such as lasers, peels, Botox, fillers and skincare. She has been actively involved in research during all aspects of her training, and more recently has focused on aesthetic and reconstructive breast surgery, labiaplasty, and laser therapies. In her free time, Dr. Wu enjoys photography, scuba diving, and teaching a mixed martial arts based class.
