Dr. Justin Johnsen, MD
I am a versatile oculofacial surgeon and I have been recognized for my academic and civic endeavors. Before establishing my practice in Salt Lake City, Utah, I had already received honors and awards from prestigious educational institutions like Vanderbilt University Medical Center and Emory University Medical School. I am a former Duke University professor and I have conducted several studies in facial trauma, CO2 laser treatments, and facial reconstructive procedures. I have participated in various civic organizations and initiatives. These include the Utah Special Winter Olympics, the United Way and other community programs in and around Utah and other states. I was born, and raised in Utah. I have a beautiful wife and six lovely children. My outside interests include exercise, cooking, and sports. I am passionate about helping others! I especially love the trauma and reconstructive aspect of facial plastic surgery

Care Philosophy

Compassion and empowerment is my philosophy!  I love to engage the patient and I support a patient's decisions about their treatment plan.  I love to educate and encourage all of my patients to be involved in all aspects of their care.  The first rule of thumb is to listen  to patient's concerns and I value a patient's input and attend to their individual needs.  I always strive to communicate in a clear, timely manner and share all pertinent information with my patients.  I always treat my patients and their families with dignity, compassion and respect.

Dr. Johnsen is amazing. He has an eye for esthetics and my eyelid surgery was perfect. His procedure was blameless, suture less, and only took 20 minutes. I recovered quickly and was thrilled with the results!!
