The photos must be taken in good lighting and against a solid-colored background. There should be no shadows on the face. Ordinary point-and-shoot cameras are not recommended because they distort the face too much for the resulting photos to be helpful. Photo files should be sent in jpeg (.JPG) format. Email them to amy@drkimfacialplastics.com. Be sure to include your name in the email.

If you have had previous facial or nasal surgery

If you have had previous facial or nasal surgery, please email or mail your old operative reports for Dr. Kim to review. If you do not have these records in your possession, you can obtain them by requesting them from your previous surgeon(s).
