Perry Liu, MD, 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 sunny 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. With this schooling, he strives to be the best eyelid surgeon Los Angeles has seen.
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.
Being well versed in both advanced aesthetic and reconstructive techniques, Dr. Liu’s international training at Chang-gung Memorial Hospital in Taiwan also included the most up-to-date Asian eyelid and nose procedures.
Dr. Liu grew up in Tifton, Georgia and has lived on the east coast until he came out to Beverly Hills and established his plastic surgery practice in 2009. He is married to Vivien, his wife of 10 years. They have two adorable children, Adrien and Julien. He and his family are all fluent in Mandarin.
During consultations, Dr. Liu strives to understand each patient’s priorities and goals so that he may fulfill their expectations, have the results complement each patient’s features and personality, and achieve the most natural result possible. Together with his patients, he will develop a treatment plan that is individualized and specific for his patient’s needs and desires. This is only a part of what makes him a great eyelid surgeon Los Angeles has to offer.
He believes that there can be no greater compliment than to have patients look great without others being able to tell they have had surgery. Subtle changes can have dramatic yet natural results. Plastic surgery can distort, maim, and destroy a person’s self esteem. Or it can enhance, rejuvenate, and restore one’s youthful looks. Dr. Liu is a staunch advocate of the later and doing what is best for his patient’s health and appearance. He is committed working with his patients to achieve this goal.
Dr. Liu also believes that great surgical outcomes are not only dependent upon good technical skills and a sound fund of knowledge, but also depend on how you handle tissue during surgery. When handled gently and treated with respect, tissues heal better and scar less. Tissues that are traumatized less during surgery also recover more quickly. Patients not only feel better faster and have less down time, but ultimately scar better. The precision of the closure also helps make scars less visible. As a result, different surgeons achieve different outcomes when performing the same exact procedure. No one understands this better than a micro-surgically trained plastic surgeon.
