Education & Accolades

Dr. Chim has authored numerous papers and chapters in both the medical sciences and fields beyond Plastic Surgery. He pursued an academic career in the Midwest, performing intricate and advanced reconstructions at a level 1 trauma center. This experience provided him with extensive knowledge of the human body's anatomy, enabling him to restore the form and function of the body's soft tissue envelope.

Along with this, he also offered state-of-the-art procedures for breast reconstruction, traumatic facial reconstruction, and cosmetic surgery. Dr. Chim's passion for facial and body aesthetic surgery is evident, and he considers himself a life-long learner.

He has received direct training from multiple experts in the field and has extensively researched modern techniques to achieve facial aesthetics, allowing him to provide the most advanced, safest, and effective methods to his patients.

Dr. Chim, a father of four children with his beloved wife, has personal experience with the physical changes that women's bodies undergo during and after pregnancy.

As one of the pioneers of Plastic Surgery once said, the aim of this field is to restore normalcy in reconstructive patients and to surpass normalcy in aesthetic pursuits.

By helping mothers restore form and function after childbirth, Dr. Chim achieves both of these goals for his special patients, who are commonly referred to as "Mom."

Dr. Chim's clinical approach is based on building a trustworthy relationship with his patients, where decisions are made through a fully informed process. He firmly believes in offering only the therapies and surgeries that he would recommend for his own family and friends if they were the ones seeking treatment.

Dr. Chim feels privileged to have been entrusted with the care of his medical colleagues and family members on numerous occasions.
