After completing undergraduate economics/computer science studies at Austin College and a graduate finance degree at the University of Dallas, Dr. Wilbur Hah met his wife Dr. Marian Chen-Hah at the University of Texas Medical School in San Antonio. In medical school, Dr. Hah was elected to the prestigious status of Alpha Omega Alpha–graduating with high honors in his medical school class. He was ranked #1 in his medical school class of 188 physicians for clinical training with straight honors in pediatrics, ob-gyn, internal medicine, medical subspecialties, psychiatry, general surgery, and surgical subspecialities. While at UT medical school, in 1987, Dr Hah was privileged to have been chosen as interim research database director at the Humana International Craniofacial Institute for Dr Kenneth Salyer, a world recognized craniofacial plastic surgeon who pioneered and who did incredible work for correction of craniofacial birth defects and cleft palates/cleft lip in children.
Dr Hah is also a 1,600 hr, multiengine, instrument-rated commercial pilot. He routinely flies around the country attending /teaching conferences. He works with a network of fellow cosmetic and plastic surgeons to bring back to Southeast Texas the latest and safest technologies in minimal invasive cosmetic breast surgery/facial plastic surgery. 10 years ago, we introduced microliposculpture to the local area—a safer form of liposuction for body contouring to the Beaumont / Southeast Texas / Southwest Louisiana allowing for weekend recovery of liposuction.
Seven years ago, we introduced lipoabdominoplasty for our clients—which allows for faster recovery than the traditional tummy tuck (about half the recovery time compared to traditional tummy tuck) . Way before they were the rage, our team has been performing Brazilian Buttock Lifts/Augmentation for over eight years here in Southeast Texas. Now with VASER liposelection, we are able to blend the latest technology with the beautiful feminine form by selectively narrowing the waist while adding elegant curves and volume to the buttocks. We now can take rapid recovery female figure body sculpting to a much higher aesthetic level than possible before.
Currently, he still divides his time between Otolaryngology/Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and Cosmetic Plastic Surgery. Dr. Hah definitely has a passion for cosmetic surgery. He sees his cosmetic work as art and takes full responsibility in refining the look. However, as in the past 20 years, he still finds it quite rewarding in helping patients with their functional medical conditions, such as well as reconstructive surgeries after trauma or skin cancer.
When not in the office, he is happy playing with his daughters at home. His hobbies include reading, flight safety training, watching movies, playing with his dogs, or restoring old cars and airplanes with his aircraft mechanic friends.
