I had Lap-Band Surgery in January of this year and thanks to Dr. Liu and I feel as though my life has changed in a way I never thought possible. I have been struggling with my weight ever since I was a kid, I was always bigger than everyone else and mentally that put me in a place where I simply accepted the burden as the way things were. At my heaviest I was around 365-370lbs, I was 350 at the time of surgery. hard to find scales to give you an accurate weight when you start getting up there, and then my life changed when my wife told me that we were having a baby. Life mattered, my future mattered, that is in a lot of ways why I chose Dr Liu in the first place. I was advised by my primary physician to seek out and interview only Board Certified and Teaching physicians, because as you know in LA there are tons of hacks out there performing this procedure and the last thing I wanted was a botched surgery. Dr. Liu met all of my criteria and was the physician I felt most comfortable with, I had the surgery at Cedar Sinai Hospital and walked out of there later in the afternoon. I had only my 2nd fill today 9/21/10 and to date have lost 70lbs, I feel I could be at the 100lbs mark but blew out my knee playing beach volleyball with my wife and spent 6 weeks on crutches. It is my goal to get down to 220lbs and stay there, thats what I weighed when I met my wife, and I have to be honest, the looks I have been getting from her over the last couple of months have been the driving force to keep working out and watching my diet. If you have trouble with dieting and cant get the pounds off, look in to Lap-Band, it worked for me, and I wouldnt recommend anyone other than Dr. Carson Liu. In fact he performed the surgery on my mother in law after she saw my results and she couldnt be happier.

Hope this review was helpful.

I had my lap-band surgery in June of this year, and I can??t say enough positive things about Dr. Liu. He has given me a new opportunity to change my lifestyle and become a new person!

Dr. Liu is an extremely skilled surgeon with a passion for helping his patients with their weight loss goals. He makes sure that you (the patient) understand the procedure and everything that goes on before and after surgery. My entire procedure only took 35 minutes and my scars are tiny! On the day of surgery, he makes sure you??re comfortable, and makes it a point to talk to your family members and friends about what??s going on?in case they have any last minute questions.

Not only did I have a great experience the day of surgery, but the aftercare is great too. Some of my stitches popped out due to my excessive tossing and turning in sleep, and Dr. Liu was able to take them out carefully so that I did not have pain or any additional scarring. The first adjustment (fill) I had was perfect, and I continued to lose weight without getting sick. Even though Dr. Liu is not covered under my insurance, I will continue to see him because of his expertise and compassion towards his patients.

After much research I decided to go to Dr. Liu for my LapBand. I have done every diet on the planet and always gained the weight back. I am done with deprivation/starving/diet pills. I was a complicated case because of prior ab surgeries due to cancer. Dr. Liu did my surgery with no complications and my recovery was easy.

Dr. Liu and his team made sure I had all the information I needed prior to surgery. They helped with insurance approval. Dr. Liu provides on going support groups once a month which are great!!

I wish I had Dr. Liu and LapBand when I was younger - I would have saved myself many thousands of dollars that got spent on diet programs!!

Thank you, Dr. Liu and staff!!

I had lap band surgery in February 20Ten. So far its been an amazing experience. My doctor, Dr. Carson Liu is an excellent doctor, which was referred to me. Before I met with Dr. Liu, I had a consultation at 1-800-GET-THIN.

My experience at GET-THIN and Dr. Liu's were like night and day. When I walked into the offices of GET-THIN in Los Angeles, on Wilshire, I felt like I was being cattle into the lap-band procedure. Everyone who had an appointment at 10 am were all placed in a room together. The front desk lady looked like a billboard that read "we do breast augmentations; lip enhancements and booty implants!" The surgical room is on the premises and it seemed like their staff members were on fast speed. I felt like they were treating me like cargo that was tagged "OPERATE NOW" or "OPERATE LATER"!

So after that experience, I explained to my general doctor that I wanted the lap-band and he then recommended Dr. Carson Liu. When I walked into Dr. Liu's office on Wilshire; I felt like a patient and not cattle. His office is very pleasant and has a real nice atmosphere. His staff members are very nice and were not pushy as if they were trying to force me into getting the lap-band. In his office there's nothing but informative literature and infomercials that helped me while I waited to meet with Dr. Liu. From the time I arrived until the time I left; I felt like the day had been set aside just for me. When I met Dr. Liu, I was thinking WOW he's young with all this experience behind him.

Dr. Liu is a true professional, which he exemplifies in his office and his knowledge of weight loss surgery. He made me feel so comfortable by taking his time explaining every detail of the surgery to me and only me. After meeting with him; I knew right away that I wanted him to perform my surgery. My surgery was performed at Cedars Sinai, and not in Dr. Liu's office. I was under a team of Bariatric professionals that comforted my woes regarding surgery and assured me that I was in the best hands with Dr. Liu. Dr. Liu is a phenomenal weight loss surgeon, who has helped me on my way to a healthy weight loss of 50 pounds and counting.

Thank you Dr. Liu!

Warm wishes,
Glendora

After doing a year's worth of research on the various options for weight loss surgery, I decided that the lap Band system offered the most flexible solution. I met with Dr. Carson Liu and he immediately put me at ease. He understood my concerns with all of the options, and agreed that in my circumstances the lap band was right for me. Dr. Liu and all of his staff were instrumental in helping me through all of the processes involved with getting medical and psychological clearances for the surgery and insurance company authorized. After my surgery Dr. Liu and all of his staff continue to be helpful, supportive and encouraging. I cannot emphasize enough how happy I am with my surgery, Dr. Liu and his staff. 2 months after surgery and I have lost over 30lbs so far, and continue to lose. My sleep apnea has been resolved and no more blood pressure medication .I have more energy than I have had in years.??On top of it all his office staff in incredible!! You will never meet a more personable and pleasant bunch of people in your life. I can not say enough wonderful things about Dr. Liu and his staff .Thank you for giving me a new beginning.

Pros: Dr Lui saved my life .

I have been overweight for as long as I can remember and have tried every diet and exercise program you can think of. I was recommended Dr. Liu by a co-worker of mine and after months of contemplating, I finally called the office to make an appointment. Dr. Liu and his staff are very helpful and didn't judge me. They understood that this was not an easy decision for me and answered every question I had every step of the way. I never felt like "just a number" like some other offices I visited before coming here. I have lost over 80lbs and thank Dr. Liu for saving my life.
