Meet Dr. Champion

Dr. Angela Champion is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. She bridges what many refer to as “the gender gap” in cosmetic surgery. Her unique perspective is informed by the many challenging and rewarding roles she inhabits as a woman. As a wife, mother, friend and surgeon, she has a complete understanding of the pressures that today’s woman must contend with on a daily basis. Most women know what changes they would like to see in their appearances. Dr. Champion combines empathy with honesty and a level of expertise that is unsurpassed in the Orange County area. She listens, understands and is greatly rewarded by the happiness and satisfaction of her patients.

Dr. Champion is an active member in the prestigious and nationally recognized American Society of Plastic Surgeons and an active Associate Member of Orange County Society of Plastic Surgeons.
