Mia Aesthetics is excited to have plastic surgeon, Dr. Charleston Chua, join the Mia Aesthetics Las Vegas team. Dr. Chua earned his medical doctorate at the University of Nevada, School of Medicine. He then completed his general surgery residency at Eastern Virginia Medical School and specialized in plastic surgery by completing a fellowship at the University of California, Davis.
Dr. Chua was drawn to plastic surgery through his work in general surgery. Although he found satisfaction in removing tumors and treating traumatic injuries, he noticed patients would feel embarrassed of the disfiguring scars and deformities left from their life-saving surgeries. Dr. Chua wondered if a saved life too afraid to return to the world is a life worth living. It was then that he realized he could help patients regain their confidence through plastic surgery. Dr. Chua loves the creativity that comes with this specialty and enjoys finding solutions to help patients love their bodies again.
After being away from his friends and family for several years, Dr. Chua is excited to be moving back to the Las Vegas area. Dr. Chua looks forward to joining Mia Aesthetics for their dynamic energy and positive work environment they have created for their surgeons and staff. In his downtime, you can find Dr. Chua traveling the world and meeting new people. His hobbies include tennis, playing the piano, and taking care of his saltwater aquariums.
While Dr. Chua specializes in facial aesthetics, breast surgery, and body contouring procedures, he particularly enjoys tummy tucks and Brazilian butt lifts. He is renowned by his peers for his clean and barely noticeable sutures. As a plastic surgeon, Dr. Chua’s philosophy is to accurately assess what body goals the patient is trying to reach to give them the best results. For Dr. Chua, trust is a two-way street and an essential factor in a patient and doctor relationship. He trusts his patients to follow his regimen before and after surgery and expects them to trust him in return to give them the body of their dreams.
