About Me

Hi, I'm David Kim. Thank you for visiting my page. I hope this gives you some insight into who I am and the goals I have for your care.


I knew I wanted to be a doctor from a young age. I was raised in a medically oriented family with a father in internal medicine and a mother in nursing. I was raised in Santa Clarita, but traveled throughout the Unites States for my training. After graduating from the University of Chicago, I went to medical school at UC San Diego, completed my plastic surgery residency at USC, and subspecialized in craniofacial surgery at Harvard. Sixteen years after leaving home, I found myself in the hospital system that took care of my family growing up. Now, it is my privilege to treat the community that raised me.

About my practice

I specialize in plastic surgery, including breast reconstruction, eyelid procedures, post-bariatric procedures, treatment of skin cancer, craniofacial surgery, facial fractures, cleft lip and palate, procedures of the external ear, and rhinoplasty.

How I thrive

I enjoy being outdoors, especially in the mountains and the ocean. I also enjoy painting and reading.
