Dr. Liu embodies the convergence of art and medicine that is the essence of aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery. His advanced surgical skills not only reflect his background as an artist, but also integrate the artistry of aesthetic surgery, the fundamental surgical principles of reconstructive surgery, and the delicate and precise nature of microsurgery. It takes a combination of multiple skills to be a good plastic surgeon.
Dr. Liu’s skills incorporate multiple disciplines and integrate them into his patients’ journeys of transformation and rejuvenation. With a special interest in Chinese painting, where balance and harmony stages all the elements of a painting, Dr. Liu understands this philosophy and utilizes it to produce more natural results.
During his 10 years of advanced training to become a cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgeon, he has trained with world-renowned surgeons in multiple disciplines across the United States and in Asia. These include, but are not limited to, advanced microsurgery, head and neck reconstruction, and breast rejuvenation/reconstruction from Dr. Fu-Chan Wei in Taiwan and Dr. Robert Allen in New Orleans. He also trained under Dr. Gustavo Colon, a preeminent aesthetic surgeon and former president of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, in New Orleans. Currently, Dr. Liu is in private practice in Los Angeles, CA.
A graduate of Duke University, where he received multiple honors, Dr. Liu continued on to medical school at Emory University in Atlanta, General Surgery Residency at New York Medical College in New York City, a Research Fellowship at Harvard Medical School/Brigham & Women’s Hospital in Boston, a Microsurgical Fellowship at Chang-gung Memorial Hospital in Taiwan, and a Plastic Surgery Fellowship at Tulane University in New Orleans. During the course of his training, he has received multiple awards and honors for his research into advanced wound healing and cancer reconstruction.
Dr. Liu’s fellowship in New Orleans encompassed extensive experiences with breast cosmetic and reconstructive procedures, eyelid surgery, abdominal contouring, and advanced liposuction techniques. As such, he can offer you the latest and most advanced techniques for your rejuvenation.
