Silicon Valley Institute for Aesthetics (SVIA) was established through the shared vision, ethos, and passion for aesthetics of two plastic surgeons who are not related but, coincidentally, share the same last name: Dr. Tom Liu and Dr. Jerome Liu. The two plastic surgeons met at UCLA while in residency, and a bond was forged.
SVIA: Our Timeline
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, “Silicon Valley institute of Aesthetics,” as we are now known, after merging Bay Area Aesthetic Surgery with Lui Plastic Surgery. We also converted our San Mateo location into a full service Aesthetic Center, delivering both surgical and non-surgical enhancements.
