Dr Steven Liew


Specialist Plastic Surgeon

Shape Clinic’s founder and medical director Dr. Steven Liew (FRACS) is Australia’s leading new generation plastic surgeons and a global leader in cosmetic facial enhancement techniques.

The first Australian to be admitted as a fellow in plastic surgery at the world renowned Memorial Sloan-Kettering Medical Centre in New York, Dr. Liew made his mark early in his career, specialising in facial and breast aesthetic plastic surgery.

Dr. Liew has continued to specialise in face and breast surgery in Sydney. But such is his passion for delivering more beautiful and natural looking results for patients he has also developed a series of world first non-surgical procedures which have earned him an international reputation. These pioneering techniques to re-shape and dramatically transform facial shapes and features have revolutionised the cosmetic industry.

World First Facial Cosmetic Procedures

Dr. Liew’s non-surgical procedure to re-shape and transform the misshapen or square shaped lower face and jawline to a more beautiful, feminine shape was the first in his series of breakthrough procedures ("Angle of Beauty" Elle, New York 2009 Dermatalogical Times, USA 2009).

He then went on to develop procedures to perform eye, neck and face lifts as well as lower jaw reshaping and gummy smile correction - all without surgery.

The Liew Lift: A global beauty template

To aid both plastic surgeons and cosmetic physicians on how to achieve the best results for patients, Dr. Liew has also developed the Liew International Face Template ("Concepts of Beauty", Dermatology Times USA 2009).

A global beauty template, the Liew lift is fast being adopted as a universal standard and measuring tool for modern facial enhancement procedures – surgical and non- surgical - around the world.
