"My mission as a facial plastic surgeon is to improve and enhance the quality of life for my patients through their face." The impact of even minor and subtle modifications in one's face can be powerful and should not be underestimated. While looking natural remains a premium, small changes can reach deeper and influence such powerful virtues as self-confidence, morale, and feeling of health. Performing facial plastic surgery and nurturing one's sense of well-being is a privilege that is never taken for granted.

Personal Life:

Outside the hospital, a majority of time is spent with his family, wife Eileen and two teenage boys. He travels extensively for professional purposes but has been fortunate to visit many exotic areas of the world. For recreation, Dr. Park is an avid golfer and continues to be very active with fitness and basketball. He is a sport enthusiast and enjoys spectating many events, especially his sons' lacrosse and football games.
