Dr. Lisa made her decision to become a plastic surgeon during her surgery rotation as a third-year medical student at the University of Washington. She assisted in a nasal reconstruction done on a young Seattle woman who had been born with a nasal deformity. Dr. Lisa witnessed her physical transformation as her plastic surgeon carved a bone graft harvested from her hip and inserted it into the bridge of her nose. Dr. Lisa witnessed her mental transformation as she recovered from her surgery and discovered the beauty in her own face. The journey to becoming a fully trained plastic surgeon was long and arduous but well worth the privilege she now enjoys in helping people achieve their personal best. Most plastic surgery patients are individuals with one or two features that bother and distract them. These features, whether it is disproportionately large or small breasts, a protuberant abdomen, a sagging jawline, or an unsightly facial mole can usually be addressed safely and effectively. The patient is then free from that particular distraction and can enjoy life with more confidence and less self-consciousness. She is a diplomate of the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Dr. Liza is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons and a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the Washington Society of Plastic Surgeons, the Northwest Society of Plastic Surgeons, the King County Medical Society, and the Washington State Medical Association. She is the past president of the Northwest Society of Plastic Surgeons and the Washington Society of Plastic Surgeons, past chair of the King County Medical Society Grievance Committee, and former Trustee of the King County Medical Society. She is also active in many medical and surgical societies at the local, regional, and national levels.
