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

MY MOTTO
Do it right the first time

THREE WORDS THAT BEST DESCRIBE ME
Visual, compassionate, perfectionist

Philosophy

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.”
