Meet Dr. Sang W. Kim

Harvard trained | double board certified facial plastic surgeon

Facial Plastic Surgeon in Syracuse, Rochester, and Ithaca, NYDr. Kim grew up in Woodland Hills, a suburb of Los Angeles, California.  For his undergraduate education, he attended the University of California – Berkeley.  For his undergraduate studies, he decided to major in molecular neuroscience and graduated with the highest honor.  Venturing outside California, he moved to the east coast to attend Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts.

As a medical student, he developed keen interest in the plastic surgery.  He was fascinated by both the technical and philosophical dimension of the specialty of plastic surgery.   He explored two pathways of becoming a plastic surgeon – one, by pursuing a residency program in general plastic surgery; and the other, by completing a residency program in otolaryngology – head and neck surgery followed by fellowship training dedicated to plastic surgery exclusively of the face, head, and neck.  After graduating from Harvard Medical School, he decided to follow his passion in facial plastic surgery by pursuing the latter path.

For residency training, he was accepted to the Harvard Combined Program in Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery.  As the top training program, he was exposed to wide breadth and depth of surgeries to repair both the form and function of the face, head, and neck.  During his final year of residency, Dr. Kim served as the chief resident in some of the most respected hospitals in the world, including Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary / Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital, and the Boston Children’s Hospital.

While the residency program offered extensive training in the functional and reconstructive aspect of facial surgery, he sought to perfect his surgical skills in the aesthetic surgeries of the face, head, and neck.  To achieve this goal, he completed fellowship program accredited by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery under the tutelage of Dr. Daniel Rousso, a world-renowned facial plastic and hair transplant surgeon.

Dr. Kim decided to move to Syracuse, New York to build a unique niche of a premiere, exclusively facial plastic surgery practice and bring most up-to-date and proven surgical and non-surgical, individualized treatments for central New Yorkers.  His goal is to establish a lasting reputation as a trusted and respected facial plastic surgeon in the community.

While in medical school he met his future wife, who was a student at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine.  They met during the first year introductory anatomy course which was shared by Harvard medical and dental schools.  While Dr. Kim was completing his residency in Boston, his wife also graduated from dental school and completed Harvard Endodontic fellowship program.  She now works as an endodontist in an endodontic group practice in central New York.  Together they have three children and reside in Manlius.

TESTIMONIALS
I was working in Central New York and had an upcoming event and needed to get 2 areas of Dystport done. They were able to accommodate my schedule( as it was short notice) Dr. Kim’s entire staff was so friendly and welcoming!! During the procedure , even Nurse Dan held my hand and kept me smiling the whole time!! I was incredibly impressed with Dr Kim as he made sure he took the time to explain the process as well as not “ being rushed” something I have experienced with previous Doctors. I live in Florida but will be seeing Dr Kim from now on, and will be recommending their office to my fellow New Yorkers! It’s been almost 2 weeks since my appointment and the results are amazing!!! So happy! Thank you so much Dr Kim, Mary and the rest of the staff !

Dr. Kim is a world-class facial plastic surgeon. I’ve been to the top surgeons in the country from Beverly Hills to Miami and I found Dr. Kim to be superior. His face and neck lift were flawless and so natural that no one could tell I had anything done, but everyone said I looked ten years younger. As Syracuse is a discreet location, I would highly recommend anyone who wants a top notch face and neck lift to fly in. His bedside manner is as fantastic as his work. I can’t recommend Dr. Kim enough. I think he is the best Facial plastic surgeon in the country.

57 years old and wanted to start my new path in life retired...not looking tired! I did extensive research and sought out 5 surgeon recommendations. I was extremely impressed with Dr. Sang Kim for several reasons: 1 - He specialized in and only performs /neck surgeries, 2 - Dr. Kim is younger and probably more newly established, but there was no doubt that he is a perfectionist and a professional in his field, 3 - He is patient and really listens. I felt confident and trusted that he was giving me his best recommendation for my concerns, 4 - He didn't try to push unnecessary or extra procedures, 5 - I was impressed by how obvious it was that Dr. Kim's administrative and medical staff liked him and respected his work. But most of all, I am extremely satisfied with the results of my face lift!

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Kim. He is the most patient, professional, and personable physician I have ever had the pleasure of seeing. Instead of being rushed through the practice, every member of his staff made me feel welcome and important from the moment I walked through the door. He wouldn't perform a single procedure on me until he fully answered every minute question I had (all of which he eloquently and candidly answered); you can tell that his formal training was exceptional. His bedside manner and skilled technique easily make him one of the best kept secrets in Syracuse. I have referred numerous friends to him who have also, in turn, referred their friends. Make the consult and see for yourself... you won't be disappointed!

Dr. Kim and his staff were incredible. I had a face lift done this past summer and I was treated with dignity and respect by everyone. Dr. Kim is an exceptional surgeon and one of the nicest and kindest doctors I have ever met. I had a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend Dr. Kim and his entire staff. I recently went back to Dr. Kim for injections. Again my experience was wonderful. He explains everything he is going to do and what to expect. I didn't bruise and I love the fact that he doesn't overdo. He and his staff are just incredible. If I could give more than 5 stars I would.
