Plastic Surgery at the Oliver Culver House in Rochester, NY

Facial Plastic Surgery in Syracuse, Rochester, and Ithaca, NYAny cosmetic office knows that the journey to self-confidence is one that is best established in a comfortable environment. After all, cosmetic procedures are all about self-care. Our office wants to ensure the best possible environment for our patients to make sure they feel pampered through every step of their journey. That is why we established our Rochester office in the lovely Oliver Culver House.


This luxury home has a long history in the area and played a part in establishing Rochester culture. Its owner and creator, Mr. Oliver Culver, was a key contributor to the city. Other buildings he constructed for the city include the St. Luke’s Episcopal Church and the early log-built school house near the Indian Landings.

Seeing as Mr. Culver was clearly a man who understood the importance of comfort and community, we are honored to host our office in a building that helps to foster those ideals. We like to think that we play an important part in the community as well by helping our neighbors become more confident with their physical appearance.


The Federal-style building was recently listed on the Viking Press as one of the most beautiful homes in America. It has been restored to its original glory and improved with modern amenities, such as air-conditioning, to make it functional for use as a medical facility.

Our office inside the building was developed with the comfort and security of our patients in mind. Here, our patients can meet with our staff to discuss facial cosmetic treatments and create a customized procedure that best fits their needs. To us, comfort is one of the most important parts of the experience, so that patients may truly embrace the idea of doing something for themselves.

Facial Treatments

Both surgical and non-surgical options are offered at our Rochester office, with procedures including facelifts, laser skin resurfacing, and injectable fillers. Dr. Kim will meet with you during your initial consultation to discuss what treatment options best fit both your needs and your budget.

Dr. Sang W. Kim

Harvard Trained, Double Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon

Sang W Kim, MD is a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon who specializes in cosmetic and reconstructive facial plastic surgery, nasal/sinus surgery, and hair restoration surgery.

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.

I am very happy with Dr. Kim and all of his staff. Not only did I have a surgical procedure done but I also go there every week for allergy shots and they couldn't be nicer. And Dr. Kim is awesome - - great bedside manner! I highly recommend them!!!

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.
