I was born in Shanghai and moved to the United States when I was five. I grew up in Palo Alto, California, and graduated Stanford University with a BS in Biological Science. I attended medical school at Washington University in St. Louis, which is also where I completed my residency. 

I’m a board certified plastic surgeon with 28 years of clinical experience. I entered this discipline because I appreciate beauty, which for me is not entirely about the way you look, but more so about how you feel. And I absolutely love to help people feel beautiful. 

My practice is based in St. Louis and my patients come from all over the world. I truly believe my approach is why I have such a loyal following. I give every patient the time they need and the attention they deserve. I do the same with my skincare line. It took me years to create Private Practice because I pay so much attention to the details. Anything I touch has to deliver results—visible change to the skin. Because that’s what you expect and deserve.
