Plastic Surgery


Profile

Dr. Liu is a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, in private practice since 2009, who has built his practice around performing life-changing restorative breast reconstruction surgeries. He is also one of the few surgeons performing calf reduction surgery along with eyelid rejuvenation, Asian Rhinoplasty, transgender plastic surgery & feminization procedures, and advanced high definition liposuction and non-surgical face lifts. Dr. Liu’s cosmetic and reconstructive surgery skills incorporate a multitude of disciplines acquired throughout his ten years of advanced training, prior to starting his own practice. Additionally, throughout his career, he has trained with a multitude of world renowned cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgeons, all known for their outstanding accomplishments in the field of reconstructive plastic surgery.

For those who have experienced devastating disfigurement from breast cancer, accidents or natural causes, Perry Liu, MD provides transformative cosmetic surgery that changes lives every day, helping to restore patients’ self - esteem and self – confidence by giving them a better perception of themselves. Dr. Liu specializes in One Stage, nipple-sparing, direct-to-implant breast reconstructions. By providing patients full reconstruction, at the actual time of their mastectomy, they can avoid the post-surgery discomfort of implants and weekly tissue expansion procedures. In many cases, this procedure also eliminates disfiguring scarring.

In the world of breast reconstruction surgery, Dr. Liu has refined the Pectoralis - Sparing Breast Reconstruction procedure, which gives patients natural - looking reconstructed breasts that duplicate healthy breast tissue, are soft, and fall to the side with positional changes. This technique is able to eliminate motion artifacts, post-breast reconstruction and other related deformities, restoring the natural appearance and behavior of women’s breasts. Another benefit of this surgery is that it can restore Pectoralis Major function and improve post-reconstruction arm weakness that many women experience.

In addition to performing complex breast reconstruction techniques, Dr. Liu is one of the few surgeons in the country who have expertise in calf reduction procedures. Patients, worldwide, seek out Dr. Liu for this unique procedure which minimizes musculature in the calf and removes unwanted adipose tissue that makes the calves look fat and results in “cankles”. Post-surgery, many of his patients are able to enjoy wearing shorts for the first time in their life or no longer have to spend half an hour squeezing into each knee-high boot.

In 2015, Dr. Liu began performing transgender plastic surgery and feminization procedures for those who are seeking a unified image of their body and soul. With his advanced surgical skills, he is able to perform precise and delicate transformative surgeries, whether for aesthetic reasons or life-changing reconstructive surgery, that produce great results with minimal scarring. Procedures include breast - related Top Surgery, Hip and Buttock Augmentation, High-Definition Liposculpting, and Calf Feminization and Mascularizing surgery. This combination of surgical skills is one of the reasons Dr. Liu is in high demand and consistently receiving high ratings from his patients.

Dr. Liu recently took the practice of advanced liposuction to a new height by training with Dr. Alfredo Hoyos, one the world leaders in High Definition Vaser Liposuction. These revolutionary techniques have changed the way liposuction is performed to produce the best aesthetic results. Dr. Liu’s High Definition Liposuction practice offers High Definition Arm and Calf Sculpting surgeries and lipo-sculpting of the torso to either enhance a patient’s masculinity or femininity.  He simultaneously balances out each patient’s figure with fat grafting to the pectoralis major muscle, deltoids, and buttocks to complete a well-crafted look.

Dr. Liu is also knowledgeable in Advanced Thread Lifting techniques, training with Korean Physician Dr. Han-Jin Kwon, who developed the Supra-V Thread Lifting technique for non-surgical face-lifting. This technique allows patients who don’t need surgery yet, another a way to improve their appearance and rejuvenate their facial features, which may be in the early stages of aging and sagging.

Dr. Liu’s professional background encompasses training with accomplished surgeons who have have been pioneers in plastic surgery. After graduating from Duke University with high honors, and Emory University Medical School in Atlanta, he completed seven years of General Surgery training at New York Medical College in NYC, of which two years was spent on a Plastic Surgery Research Fellowship at Harvard Medical School/Brigham & Women’s Hospital in Boston with Dr. Dennis Orgill.

His initial course of advanced study took him to Taiwan, where he completed a Microsurgical Fellowship at Chang-gung Memorial Hospital under world - leading microsurgeon Dr. Fu-Chan Wei. This experience gave Dr. Liu experience in performing advanced aesthetic and reconstructive techniques, including the most advanced Asian eyelid and nose procedures. 

He then began a Plastic Surgery Fellowship at Tulane University in New Orleans, training with Dr. Gustavo Colon, a preeminent aesthetic surgeon and former president of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Through this Fellowship, he acquired extensive experience in breast cosmetic and reconstructive procedures, eyelid surgery, abdominal contouring, and advanced liposuction techniques. 

During his plastic surgery fellowship, Dr. Liu also trained with Dr. Robert Allen, the world - leading Microsurgical Autologous Breast Reconstruction expert and developer of the DIEP Breast Construction procedure that all reconstructive plastic surgeons now use. With his wide range of experience as a plastic surgeon, he opened his private cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery practice in Beverly Hills, California in 2009.

Over the course of his career, Dr. Liu has received multiple honors and awards. In 2017, he was named one of the “Top Ten Plastic Surgeons in Beverly Hills” while Los Angeles Magazine included him on their list of Top L.A. Doctors. Dr. Liu was also selected by Castle Connolly for their list of “Top Plastic Surgeons.” 

In 2013, Dr. Liu experienced a life-changing event when he was asked to join “Mission Ayacucho” (http://www.ayacuchomission.org), a week-long humanitarian surgical project in Ayachuho, Peru. As part of a team of surgical experts, Dr. Liu has performed many reconstructive surgeries on indigent children and adults with cleft palates and serious burn scarring, while correcting other disfiguring deformities. Since then, he has returned to Ayacucho each summer to provide his expertise to those in need. 

Fluent in Mandarin and practiced in the art of Chinese painting, Dr. Liu understands the balance and harmony required at all stages of painting and utilizes this same  philosophy in his surgery to produce the best, most natural results for his patients.

Dr. Liu is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgery and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. For more information, please visit: www.perryliumd.com.
