NewBeauty Top Doctor Since 2022

Dr. John Kang

Facial Plastic Surgeon
30 Central Park South, Suite 11B, New York, NY, 10019
Using my sense of artistry, anatomical knowledge and surgical skills, I’m able to wind back the clock.


For highly qualified and experienced double board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. John Kang, choosing to perform a nonsurgical or minimally invasive treatment instead of facial surgery only occurs after extensive research and application has proven it to be a beneficial solution for patients. “I am very excited about the Silhouette InstaLift procedure and PDO threading,” says Dr. Kang. “Threading provides a great alternative for those who don’t desire a traditional facelift or for postsurgical patients who want additional improvement without going back under the knife.” Whether performing facial surgery or employing the latest technology, he aims for the most natural-looking results to ensure that your choice to undergo cosmetic enhancement is undetectable. “I have mastered the art of providing local anesthetic for patients who need to be awake and can sit up and blink their eyes, which helps optimize surgical outcomes such as in ptosis repair or the creation of a double eyelid crease.”

A Minute With

  1. What are your most requested procedures?

    Upper and lower blepharoplasty,
    rhinoplasty, fat transfer, facelift
    surgeries, threadlifts, Ultherapy,
    Thermage, Fraxel laser resurfacing,
    Smartlipo laser-assisted liposuction,
    and Botox Cosmetic and fillers

  2. How does your staff enhance your practice?

    As a solo practicing physician, I take
    great pride in taking care of every
    patient who walks into my office. My
    staff is an extension of me and they do
    an amazing job at truly facilitating my
    practice through great organization
    and communication skills

  3. Why do you employ a less-is-more philosophy?

    “Less is more” is a tenet all plastic
    surgeons need to live by. At the end
    of the day, plastic surgery is elective;
    no one “has” to have it. The concept of
    overdoing it doesn’t make any sense

  4. What new services are you excited to offer?

    Our “Weekend Makeover” consists
    of Thermage skin tightening for
    nonsurgical lifting of the face,
    hyaluronic acid fillers to restore
    lost volume and Botox Cosmetic to
    smooth out wrinkles in the brow and
    forehead. Recently, we’ve expanded
    our “Weekend Makeover” to include
    Ultherapy and threadlifts. We decide
    during our consultation which of
    these nonsurgical options are best
    to meet a patient’s unique aesthetic
    needs and then combine them to
    ensure we get the best possible result

  5. What are you best known for?

    Natural-looking results without any
    sign of having surgery. With my lower
    eyelid surgery, I can make under-eye
    bags disappear without any sign
    of the patient undergoing surgery.
    When I create an Asian double eyelid
    crease, it can appear as if you were
    born with a natural double crease.
    Finally, I can create a natural-looking
    nasal tip using a patient’s cartilage,
    which makes the dorsal implant
    more organic or natural to the face

  6. My motto

    Do it right the first time

"Good Evening, Hope the whole team had an excellent long weekend.
