Welcome to my home page. I'm happy to have a chance to tell you a little about my practice and myself. I feel fortunate to be working in an environment where quality health care and a personalized practice of medicine are highly valued. I look forward to helping to take care of your plastic and reconstructive surgery needs.
I was born in Pusan, Korea and moved to New Jersey at age 8. While my formative years and education were on the East Coast, I came to Los Angeles in 1991, moved to Palos Verdes in 1994, and can't see living anywhere else. I met my wife at Children's Hospital Los Angeles and now have three very energetic and interesting young men!
My practice encompasses the full gamut of plastic surgery -- breast reconstruction, microsurgery, cleft lip and palate surgery, hand surgery, and cosmetic surgery. It is practiced in a very friendly and supportive environment with a team of dedicated nurses, clinic assistants, estheticians, and USC plastic surgery residents.
Balance in all things is very important, and my family life helps keep everything in perspective for me. Being the father of three teenagers keeps me fairly active, and I try to stay fit to keep up with them. I enjoy running, bicycling, playing tennis, sailing and golf, as well as sports by the seasons, skiing, soccer, baseball, etc.
