David W. Kim, MD, is pleased to serve as co-director of the prestigious Advances in Rhinoplasty course, sponsored by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS). This year’s Advances in Rhinoplasty course will be held May 8-11, 2013 in Chicago.
Dr. Kim is humbled and honored that his peers have selected him to direct this highly esteemed event, underscoring his position as one of the nation’s top rhinoplasty experts.
While rhinoplasty, or a nose job, is commonly known, most people don’t realize it is the most complex of facial plastic surgeries. The nose's three-dimensional structure, its tremendous variability in shape, and its role as a breathing organ, all make rhinoplasty especially challenging.
Through research, teaching, and performing thousands of nasal surgeries, many of them corrections of others' work, Dr. Kim has achieved international professional acclaim for his expertise in this complicated surgery called rhinoplasty.
Dr. David W. Kim is a double-board certified facial plastic surgeon, by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology. He serves on the Board of Directors of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and is also a Fellow of The American College Of Surgeons (FACS).
