Our Doctors

Dr. Mats Hagström


Dr. Hagström is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and member of the American Society of Plastic Surgery. He has over 15 years of experience performing cosmetic procedures and loves laser assisted liposuction because of what it can do for a patient and their self image.

Originally from Sweden, Dr. Hagström speaks fluent Swedish. He studied his undergraduate work at San Francisco State University and pre med requirements at Stanford, before completing medical school at Boston University School of Medicine. He then returned to California to do his general surgery training and complete his plastic surgery residencies at UCI Medical Center.

Dr. Hagström has always been on the leading edge of innovative surgical techniques, and has even invented his own medical device. He believes that patient care comes before all else and that patients should always be treated as you would treat your own family.

Outside of the procedure room, you’ll find Dr. Hagström with his wife and son or with his ‘other love’: making wine. He and his business partner own Travieso Winery in Campbell, CA. He is also an avid chef and cyclist.
