Meet Dr. Li

Meet Dr. Li

We're happy to welcome Dr. Eric Li as an associate to our plastic surgery practice in San Jose. He is certified by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and has completed 2 prestigious aesthetic surgery fellowships. Dr. Li specializes in cosmetic and reconstructive breast surgery and has a special interest in the aesthetic improvement of the Asian face.

Combining Aesthetics with Technique

It didn't take Dr. Li long after entering medical school to choose plastic surgery as the specialty he wanted to pursue. No other surgical field, he says, offered the unique marriage of artistry, problem-solving, and technical mastery.

He sees plastic surgery as a way to provide patients with personalized care and outcomes that can boost their confidence and change the way they look at themselves. That may occur by helping a woman who wants breast reconstruction after a mastectomy, performing skin cancer surgery in a way that minimizes scarring, or removing excess breast tissue for a young man suffering from gynecomastia.

Aesthetic Surgery for the Asian Face

This area of plastic surgery continues to quickly evolve and requires special attention to detail because the surgical techniques used differ from those applied to the Caucasian face. Dr. Li is especially interested in non-surgical and surgical techniques for jawline reduction, double eyelid creation, and nasal augmentation.

International Training

Dr. Li's path to our practice, Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery Associates, where he joins board-certified plastic surgeon and founder, Dr. Vincent Lepore, began in Toronto and continued through Michigan and Australia. A native of Hong Kong, Dr. Li grew up in suburban Toronto, and he earned his medical degree from the Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine at McMaster University in Ontario, Canada. He then completed his plastic surgery residency at McMaster, followed by aesthetic and reconstructive breast surgery fellowships in Michigan and Melbourne, Australia.

His advanced surgical training included aesthetic face, breast, and body contouring surgery, and he also completed specialized training in rhinoplasty.

Making the San Jose Area His Home

After spending time in many corners of the world, Dr. Li is happy to be in San Jose. He enjoys the weather and is quickly becoming part of the community and the cultural and recreational opportunities available. He is fluent in English, French, and Cantonese. Away from work, Dr. Li enjoys cooking, amateur photography, swimming, and spending time with his family.

Professional Accomplishments

Besides being a fellowship-trained plastic surgeon, Dr. Li has authored numerous articles for peer-reviewed publications and co-authored chapters for 3 different textbooks. Highlights from his CV include:

  • Eligible for certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery
