Meet Dr. Olga Bachilo - Plastic Surgeon
Dr. Bachilo was born in Minsk, Belarus. She grew up in a household with a strong scientific presence since her father is a distinguished scientist in the field of physical chemistry. Due to her father’s research, the family traveled throughout Europe during her childhood. Eventually, the family moved to Houston, TX where she was immersed into the life of the Texas Medical Center. Dr. Bachilo had an early appreciation and love for science, which was further amplified when she was introduced to medicine. Through exposure to the Texas Medical Center and experiences that she had there, she was inspired to pursue a career in medicine.
After completing her undergraduate degree in Bioengineering and Biochemistry at Rice University in Houston, Dr. Bachilo attended medical school at Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine in College Station.

Additionally, Dr. Bachilo rotated though several private cosmetic surgery practices where she was able to further tune her cosmetic surgical abilities.
Dr. Bachilo participated in a mission trip to Chihuahua, Mexico through Operation San Jose and Cronin Brauer Cleft Lip and Palate Clinic in 2016.

“Patients today must make educated decisions about their care and in choosing their surgeon. However, with the abundance of information available, it is imperative that they receive the correct information and are able to clearly understand it. I encourage each patient to do their research and my goal is to educate each patient about their surgical procedure, expected results and post-operative course. It is my pleasure to guide my patients through their path to self-transformation and to help them achieve their aesthetic goals. I believe that these goals can only be achieved through excellent communication between surgeon and patient and a personalized approach.”
