South Florida’s Medical Experts 2023: Liza Wu, MD, MBA, FACS

Plastic Surgeon 

Dr. Liza Wu is a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon. She completed her undergraduate studies at Stanford University, and medical school and training at the University of Chicago, followed by a microsurgery fellowship at MD Anderson Cancer Center. In addition, Dr. Wu fulfilled a breast surgical oncology fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania so that she could better treat her patients. 

After being recruited to the University of Pennsylvania in 2006, she achieved early promotion to Professor of Surgery and has won numerous awards, held multiple leadership roles, and is recognized as a renowned expert in breast surgery and one of the only surgeons in the United States that performs both the surgical management of breast cancer as well as the reconstruction of post-oncologic defects. 

Q: What brings you to South Florida? 

A. After 17 years of academic practice in Philadelphia, I settled in Boca Raton in July 2022, where I realized I could serve clients seeking both aesthetic and reconstructive procedures, and provide specialized services not seen before in the area. I established Privé Plastic Surgery to provide patients the level of care they deserve, and share the education, training and expertise I have gained throughout my career. 

Q: What are your areas of expertise? 

A. I offer aesthetic procedures such as facelifts, neck lifts, eye lifts, breast augmentation, breast lifts, breast reductions, tummy tucks, mommy makeovers, liposuction, etc. I also treat women affected by breast cancer, or those at high risk for breast cancer, by performing the removal and/or reconstruction of their breasts. I perform reconstructive microsurgery, which involves transferring tissue from one part of the body to another by suturing blood vessels and nerves. 

Q: What sets you apart in your profession? 

A. My education, level of training, and experience set me apart from others. However, what I value the most are the long-term relationships that I foster with my patients. I have known some of my patients for over 15 years. I have patients for whom I have also treated their mothers, sisters and daughters. My patients are like family to me.
