I received my BS in Biology at Georgetown University. I then went to the University of Pittsburgh where I earned my MD.

I completed 3 years of General Surgery at University of Chicago Hospitals, which lead me to my Plastic Surgery training at Wayne State University Hospitals as well as a Hand & Microsurgery fellowship.

I started as a Plastic Surgeon when I was 32 years old – one of the youngest Plastic Surgeons in the US at the time. I have thoroughly enjoyed every moment since!

Plastic Surgery has rapidly evolved over the past couple of years and is continually advancing.

I remember when I used to walk to and from school uphill both ways; Today, however, plastic surgery uses more refined techniques, better pain control after surgery, lower risk of certain complications, more natural looks, less invasive procedures, better instruments in the operating room – I could go on for hours!

I pride myself on keeping up with the latest techniques in plastic surgery because I love providing my patients with the safest and most current techniques and technology. It’s imperative to continue to learn and hone your craft.

I’m on several committees for the ASPS/ American Society of Plastic Surgeons, including the “Social Media” Committee and the “QPMC/ Quality Performance and Measurements Committee.” The Social Media Committee is a newer committee which is on the cutting edge of Patient Education and Patient Engagement. The QPMC measure what exactly is “quality” in Plastic Surgery, and works with the Federal Government to provide actual data that shows how effective Plastic Surgery can be in procedures covered under health insurance.

I review articles for the “PRS Journal,” the world’s most prestigious, largest, and popular peer reviewed scientific plastic surgery journal. II love reviewing my knowledge and learning the latest advances in world wide Plastic Surgery research.

I also have a healthy amount of skepticism. Sometimes I will not offer the “latest” technique or device because it’s not proven, or there is too much marketing hype involved. My patients know that I offer the most advanced techniques and devices that are actually proven to work!

Dr. Roy Kim is an amazing doctor. I have never had a plastic surgery before hand and I was a little nervous. He made me feel really comportable and was very professional. Dr. Kim gave me a breast augmentation and I couldn’t be happier. This is by far the best decision I have ever made. I’m so beyond happy with my results and healed very fast and was not even in any pain. I can’t thank Dr. Kim enough for making me more confident.

It was my first time visiting Dr. Kim’s office and naturally I was nervous; I was having fillers in my face.
Perrie, the office manager greeted me and was so warm and sweet. The moment Dr. Kim saw me in the waiting room he struck up a conversation and was so genuine and welcoming. He immediately put me right at ease. When he took me into the procedure room, he spoke with me in detail about what I wanted and made sure he was clear. He explained everything he was doing during the process, took his time, and only gave me a little bit of product at a time to make sure I was happy along the way. He was so thorough, clear, consistent, and patient! I absolutely LOVE the results of what he did and would highly recommend him. I will certainly be returning. :)
