About Dr. Chaowen Wu

Dr. Wu specializes in natural and minimally invasive aesthetic plastic surgery procedures
inspired by and designed to empower you, including natural breast surgeries and facial

Dr. Chaowen Wu’s name was carefully chosen by her grandfather, and means “to surpass.”
With her name as her guiding principle, Dr. Wu has never stopped striving to be better. She
graduated from the competitive dual degree MD-PhD program at Wayne State University
School of Medicine and completed a rigorous 6-year integrated plastic surgery residency at the
Medical College of Wisconsin, after which Dr. Wu completed an additional year of Fellowship
training to perfect her skills in aesthetic plastic surgery.

Immediately after moving to Houston, Texas for her Fellowship, Dr. Wu fell in love with the food
and weather, which reminded her of her childhood home in Canton, China and her mom’s
home cooking. Texas’ beautiful countryside has also reignited Dr. Wu’s childhood aspirations
and lifelong dream of owning a farm and caring for her own horses. She now calls Houston
home, and is thrilled to be serving its incredible community.

“The natural approach is the overriding theme of Dr. Wu’s practice. Her love for and obsession with chasing perfection led her to the artful and scientific pursuit of plastic surgery the natural way through minimally invasive aesthetic plastic surgery procedures. Giving the “gift of Wu” means allowing Dr. Wu to share with you her passion for creating beautifully empowering and natural-looking results inspired by your own body.”
