Q: What is your mission?

A: My mission as a facial plastic surgeon is to empower your beauty. I believe that everyone is beautiful, and I want to help bring out your beauty and confidence so that you can present your best self to the world.

Q: What is the most common surgery you perform?

A: Very few surgeons in the DMV area perform Asian eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), but it is the most common surgery I perform to make your eyes look brighter and more open. I do the surgery at my office under local anesthesia, and patients go home the same day. There is some swelling but overall minimal discomfort and final results are realized in 3-6 months.

Q: How is Asian plastic surgery different from non-Asian plastic surgery?

A: The anatomy and aesthetic goals of Asian patients are unique, particularly related to the eyelids and the nose. Asian eyelid creases need to be low and clean, and Asian noses usually need to be made bigger, not smaller. As a Korean-American, I appreciate these nuances and have dedicated myself to mastering the techniques of Asian eyelid surgery and Asian rhinoplasty. I apply this attention to detail for all of my patients, regardless of their ethnicity.

Q: How does your musical background tie into facial plastic surgery?

A: I have played the violin for over 35 years, devoting countless hours to technique and artistry in music. I apply that same discipline to facial plastic surgery to help patients achieve their goals.
