The Evolution ofBay Area Aesthetic Surgery and the Svia Network
Our established network of Bay Area Aesthetic Surgery, Liu Plastic Surgery/SVIA Plastic Surgery Sacramento, and SVIA MedSpa in San Mateo and Los Gatos represents an institution of high-end luxury and quality service within one framework. We are passionate about providing a personalized experience that inspires our patients to feel confident about themselves and their lives. Our goal is to bring out the best in every patient that walks through our doors and entrusts us with their aesthetic journey. For us, there is no compromise.
Silicon Valley Institute for Aesthetics (SVIA) was established through a shared vision, ethos, and passion for aesthetics of two plastic surgeons who coincidentally share the same last name but who are not related: Dr. Tom Liu and Dr. Jerome Liu. The two plastic surgeons met at UCLA while in residency, and a bond was forged.
Liu Plastic Surgery was established. The practice started in a sublet office, open a few days a week, with a single employee.
Our San Jose location was opened to serve clients throughout the areas of San Jose, Los Gatos, and the entire Silicon Valley region. The “Beauty Clinic,” was established, the precursor to SVIA Medspa.
We moved into our current state-of-the-art facility in Los Gatos, located at 15055 Los Gatos Blvd.
We opened our first office in Sacramento and transitioned our Los Gatos facility to deliver only aesthetic surgeries.
The journey led to purchasing Peninsula Skin Clinic in San Mateo. We then merged it with The Beauty Clinic, forming SVIA Medspa.
The practice continued to grow, leading to the acquisition of Bay Area Aesthetic Surgery, and the creation of a new entity, “Institute of Aesthetics and Liu Plastic Surgery,” as we are now known, after merging Bay Area Aesthetic Surgery with Liu Plastic Surgery.
