Tom S. Liu MD, MBA

Dr. Tom Liu is board certified and fellowship trained in aesthetic plastic surgery with an additional sub-specialty in microsurgery. In bringing the highest quality of surgical care and results to his patients, Dr. Liu develops a customized treatment plan for each individual based on a medical examination and personalized aesthetic evaluation. 

Dr. Liu earned his degree from Northwestern University, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude with Honors and held membership to Phi Beta Kappa. He completed both medical school and business school at the renowned University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine through a highly competitive five-year program that combined an MD and MBA. Dr. Liu’s passion for plastic surgery arose from a medical mission trip to Puerto Rico, where he helped repair congenital deformities (birth defects) in children. His surgical skills and business acumen allowed him to raise $10,000 for pediatric reconstructive plastic surgery in Puerto Rico. Dr. Liu graduated from the University of Chicago with Honors and was nominated for membership to the Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society. 

Dr. Liu was then awarded the sole position for a combined general and plastic surgery program at the distinguished UCLA Medical Center, where he was drawn to aesthetic plastic surgery and microvascular surgery. He pursued extensive training in these two fields of medicine simultaneously during a prestigious sub-specialty fellowship at the Plastic Surgery Institute of San Francisco. There, he trained under the tutelage of the world’s leading plastic surgeons and learned advanced techniques in facelift surgery, body contouring surgery, microsurgery, injectables, and breast reconstruction, among many other procedures.

In addition to his clinical experience performing plastic surgery, Dr. Liu serves on the patient safety committee for the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). Much of Dr. Liu’s research is focused on cutting-edge breast reconstruction techniques and he has authored numerous peer-reviewed articles, book chapters, and manuscripts for lauded publications such as Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

With an aesthetic philosophy grounded in achieving long-term results that look natural, Dr. Liu believes in achieving a patient’s cosmetic goals by enhancing their true beauty rather than transforming their natural character. When he is not with his patients, Dr. Liu enjoys the culinary arts, cooking, cycling, hiking with his dog Caesar, and spending time with his wife, a dermatologist.

Dr. Liu became passionate about surgery at an early age and was one of the few high schoolers selected to participate in Brown University’s medical education program, a prestigious position that guaranteed him admission to medical school. Following graduation from Brown University, Dr. Liu completed medical school at the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine where he was awarded distinguished membership to the Alpha Omega Alpha honor society. After completing his medical education, Dr. Liu attended UCLA Medical Center for his general and plastic surgery residency, an institution rated “Best in the West” by US News and World Reports. In addition to completing his fellowship in plastic surgery, he was honored with a multitude of research grants and teaching awards, including the National Research Service Award. This grant was awarded by the National Institute of Health and Veterans Administration and allowed him to complete a master’s degree in health services research. 

Dr. Liu subsequently received a sub-specialty fellowship in aesthetic surgery at the highly acclaimed University of Texas Southwestern (UTSW) Medical Center and Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute (DPSI).
