About Me

As a double-certified otolaryngologist and facial plastic surgeon, I specialize exclusively in aesthetic and reconstructive surgery of the face. Aesthetic facial surgeries include rhinoplasty, facelift, browlift, eyelid surgery and otoplasty. Reconstructive facial surgeries include surgery for nasal obstruction, reanimation after facial paralysis, facial trauma repair, scar revision and skin cancer reconstruction. I also provide patients with nonsurgical treatments such as skin treatments, botulinum toxin injections and dermal fillers.

Our face is how we present ourselves to the world, and I feel fortunate to be able to help patients put their best face forward. I am humbled by the daily opportunity to repair, restore and enhance facial form and function while holding patients’ goals in the highest regard. I am committed to providing exceptional and compassionate patient care, both at home and abroad. I dedicate time every year to perform facial plastic surgery–particularly cleft lip and palate repair–for medically underserved populations, which in recent years has taken me to the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and India. My research interest is in facial paralysis and cutting edge techniques to restore movement to a paralyzed face.

My favorite part of working at Ohio State is our focus on exceptional patient care. I love working with an amazing team of physicians and residents in a nationally renowned department. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, traveling, running and creating art.

    She listened well. She could have been a little more gentle removing sutures and splints.

    I love Dr. Kim!! She and her staff have been excellent from the beginning of my care with her office. I couldn't feel more comfortable nor could I trust her more with my healthcare. She is incredibly attentive and answered all my questions. I could tell she cares very much for her patients. Her administrative assistant Christy(not sure if that's how she spells her name) is just as amazing as Dr. Kim. She returns calls within hours of leaving a message or she's there to answer her phone when I call.
