About Charlotta C. La Via

Dr. La Via was born in Sweden and spent seven of her childhood years in West Africa before moving to Northern California. Prior to starting her pre-medical undergraduate studies at the University of California, Berkeley, she spent one year in Barcelona, Spain, studying Spanish art history and literature. At Berkeley, she completed a double major in molecular and cell biology and integrative biology while also studying French, Italian, as well as Swedish literature.

Dr. La Via earned her medical degree from the University of California, Irvine, finishing in the top ten percent of her class and being elected into the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honors Society. She completed her general surgery training at the University of South Florida in Tampa where she received the Outstanding Intern award.

Dr. La Via continued her education at the University of Southern California Plastic Surgery Program where she was trained in all facets of Plastic and Reconstructive surgery. She developed a special interest in aesthetic surgery, reconstructive breast surgery as well as body contouring procedures including surgery on massive weight loss patients.

"As a solo practitioner since 2003, my focus in building a practice has been on personalized patient care. Exploring each patient's unique needs and expectations through a thorough evaluation, and meeting those expectations through careful surgical planning and postoperative care has resulted in a rewarding experience both personally and professionally. My interest and experience in aesthetic surgery has enhanced my reconstructive surgery practice and vice versa. My goal is always patient satisfaction and I learn from all my patients."
