In addition to seeing patients at Marina Plastic Surgery, Dr. Macias continues to train chief residents in the University of Southern California Plastic Surgery Residency Program as well as cosmetic surgery fellows in the USC-Marina Plastic Surgery Aesthetic Fellowship.

Dr. Luis H. Macias spent the week in Miami learning from Dr. Constantino Mendieta, Brazilian Butt Lift expert and author of the textbook titled The Art of Gluteal Shaping.
Before pursuing his career in medicine, Dr. Macias served his country in the U.S. Marine Corps. He became an avionics technician for the F/A-18 Hornet fighter jet, reaching the rank of sergeant. He then used the G.I. bill to obtain his undergraduate and medical degrees from UCLA.
Patients looking for plastic surgeons in Los Angeles can consult with Dr. Macias and take comfort in his warm bedside manner. His compassion puts his patients at ease, while his exceptional surgical skills gain attention among colleagues. In addition, his bicultural-bilingual background makes it easier to communicate with, and relate to, patients who speak Spanish.
As a Marine, Dr. Macias knows what it means to be dedicated, disciplined, and passionate. He brings those same traits to his career in plastic surgery, where he is specializing in aesthetic surgery and reconstruction for cancer and trauma patients. His empathetic nature shines through whether his patients are undergoing a complex reconstructive procedure or have decided on breast implants or liposuction after struggling with low self-esteem because of their physical appearance.
