Dr. Kim's Care Philosophy

The Natural Look is an important principle in aesthetic, reconstructive and cosmetic surgery for Dr. Tae Ho Kim. It takes a skillful, experienced and artistic plastic surgeon to restore, reshape and create a harmonious balance of your face and body. This is just as important with non-surgical treatment, such as Botox and facial fillers. With over 14 years of experience as a board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Kim has honed his craft as a masterful human sculptor.
