Meet Dr. Kang
Dr. Kang believes that an optimal balance and harmony can be achieved in patients of all ages, gender, and ethnic backgrounds. The key to success then is, Dr. Kang’s keen sense of what natural beauty is and how he is able to create these favorable changes with finesse and artistic sense, using an “alchemy” of surgical and non-surgical procedures, which is individualized for the patient.
Knowing the anatomy and having engrained the varying textures of the tissues of the face and neck so well in his hands, has been of immeasurable benefit to Dr. Kang in the era of rejuvenation procedures through the “needle’ injections of Botox and various dermal filler agents such as Fat, Juvederm, Restylane, and Radiesse; as well as surgeries using minimal incision techniques or endoscopic techniques where knowing the anatomy, hidden under the skin, has become even more of a paramount importance.
Due to his strong interest in performing surgery on Asian-American patients, he pursued additional training from other renowned Plastic Surgeons in the US as well as in Korea, whose practice was geared towards patients of Asian descent. This additional training has proven to be invaluable in terms of incorporating Facial Plastic Surgery for Asian-Americans into his practice.
Dr. Kang has also performed thousands of surgeries and “non-surgical” cosmetic procedures and has earned a reputation for creating natural, well-rested look for his patients. As a result, he is very much in demand.
Dr. Kang has throughout his career worked with and taught medical students and residents in the areas of facial plastic surgery and head and neck surgery. He has personally taught the surgical residents at Beth Israel Medical Center, New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, Jacobi Hospital, North Shore University Hospital, and Long Island Jewish Medical Center. Dr. Kang presently holds dual academic appointments as Clinical Assistant Professor, Hofstra North Shore-Long Island Jewish School of Medicine and as Clinical Instructor, Albert Einstein College of Medicine. He is “double” board certified with the American Board of Otolaryngology and Head and Surgery and the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Otolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery and the American College of Surgeons. Dr. Kang is also a Fellowship-Trained Member of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
