Perry H. Liu MD
Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon

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.

John Reinisch, MD
Plastic Surgeon

A board-certified plastic surgeon and graduate of Harvard Medical School, Dr. Reinisch’s primary clinical and research interests focus on the field of pediatric plastic surgery and congenital ear deformities (microtia). He has treated more than 20,000 children from across the country and around the world. Central to Dr. Reinisch’s work is his emphasis on minimally invasive surgeries and personal, comfortable care, as well as his assurance that his patients and their families feel relaxed and confident throughout treatment. In 1983, Dr. Reinisch founded the Division of Plastic Surgery at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, which is now one of the busiest departments at children’s hospitals in the world.

Dr. Reinisch is known worldwide for his design and development of the Medpor ear reconstruction technique. Traditionally, plastic surgeons have relied on a technique that removes cartilage from a patient’s chest and uses it to build the ear. The method, though effective, has two major limitations: It requires multiple surgeries to complete and cannot be performed until a child is 8-10 years of age – old enough to have a sufficient amount of rib cartilage. By this time, the effects of living with a deformity have often taken a toll on the child emotionally. Dr. Reinisch envisioned a new technique that would save children and their families the discomfort of multiple surgeries and the emotional distress a facial deformity can cause.

Dr. Reinisch designed a new method that relies on a biomaterial—not human—chest cartilage, and can therefore be implanted in children as young as age 3 in a single surgery, resulting in a better cosmetic outcome than rib cartilage ear reconstruction. By creating a new ear from the biomaterial and wrapping it in a thin layer of tissue from the patient’s scalp, Dr. Reinisch has overcome many of the obstacles of traditional ear reconstruction and has successfully treated more than 1,000 children. Since performing the first Medpor® surgery in 1991, Dr. Reinisch has further improved the technique by eliminating the need for drains after surgery, resulting in minimal scarring. More than 80 percent of his Medpor surgeries have required only one procedure.

Dr. Reinisch’s work with microtia and his creation of the Medpor® technique have won awards from both the American Association of Plastic Surgeons (AAPS) and the European Association of Plastic Surgeons (EURAPS). Most recently, he was the honored guest at the opening of the Smile Angel Foundation’s new children’s hospital in Beijing.

Dr. Reinisch is currently the Director of Craniofacial and Pediatric Plastic Surgery for Cedars-Sinai Medical Group in Los Angeles. When he began practicing in the 1980s, the field of pediatric plastic surgery was still in its infancy, and many children’s hospitals did not consider it a specialty. He is credited with establishing the Division of Plastic Surgery at the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, creating a model for other hospitals and serving as its Chief. He has also served as Head of the Division of Plastic Surgery at the University of Southern California (USC).
