Our Aesthetic Providers Tri Valley Plastic Surgery

Dr. Steven Williams

Founder & Lead Plastic Surgeon

Steven Williams, MD is a board certified Oakland plastic surgeon at Tri Valley Plastic Surgery. He leads the Tri Valley Plastic Surgery team providing outstanding cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery. His education and training has exclusively been at ivy league institutions (Dartmouth for college, Yale University for medical school and residency training).

He specializes in cosmetic face, body and breast work. At Tri Valley Plastic Surgery we are one of the busiest practices for breast augmentation and are the leaders in body contouring with techniques like minimal pain tummy tucks and fat transfer to enhance patient curves including hips, buttocks and breasts.

Dr. Steven Williams is a passionate plastic surgery professional with a decade of hands-on expertise in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. He occupies leadership roles at the local, state and national level and is frequently sought for his expertise. Not only is he involved with individualized patient care, but he is also a pioneer in the greater agendas of the plastic surgery realm – even lobbying in Washington, DC for insurance rights for breast cancer survivors.
