Dr. Liu Torrance, CA Dr. Alex Liu is a devoted family man. Putting a priority in personal relationships is what helps him understand and serve his patients better. After training at the most prestigious institutions in the United States, he decided to come back home to the South Bay area to serve the community he grew up in.

Dr. Liu is board certified and has trained from the West Coast to New Orleans to New York to Miami at some of the top medical centers in the country. After specializing his residency training to surgery of the eyes and eyelids, he furthered his training with two fellowships; one fellowship was under the mentorship of a general plastic surgeon and a second fellowship under an Oculoplastic & Liposculpture specialist. Dr. Liu wanted to not only enhance his skills as an eyelid and facial specialist but also to broaden his knowledge of the field of plastic surgery. Combining expertise of the eye, eyelids, face, and plastic surgery is what Dr. Liu’s practice is all about.

Having trained with the top physicians all over the country gives him the advantage of having the broadest education in the field of facial plastic surgery, minimally-invasive cosmetic surgery, and liposculpture of the body and face.

From his appearance on local news as an expert physician to his seminars and lectures, Dr. Liu is positioned as an up & coming leader in his field. Dr. Liu is always re-educating himself on the latest technology and surgical methods to continue to offer his patients the highest degree of cosmetic excellence. He was the first in the South Bay to offer SmartLipo ™, the revolutionary cutting-edge technology for fat removal.
