Dr. Kathy Huang has the following 1 specialty
- Plastic Surgery
A plastic surgery specialist is a physician with extensive training in the execution of plastic surgery procedures.
Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts. Congenital defects, such as a cleft lip or palate, can be corrected by a plastic surgery specialist. Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.
The other category of plastic surgery is cosmetic plastic surgery. Plastic surgery specialists often perform procedures like breast augmentation, face lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and lip injection as elective surgeries for patients who wish to make aesthetic improvements.

I had such an amazing experience and results! Dr. Huang was friendly, down to earth, and called the afternoon of my surgery to see hoe I was feeling. I really liked that she truly listened to what I wanted to get out og my breast augmentation.
Diagnosed with Stage 0 Breast Cancer earlier this year, I elected to have a Bilateral Breast Reduction at the same time as the Lumpectomy. My Sibley Hospital Johns Hopkins Breast Surgeon recommended Dr Kathy Huang to operate simultaneously with her. Because the breast was going to be reduced, my surgeon was able to take a wider margin than normal for the Lumpectomy, and unfortunately, another cancer, this one Stage 1, was found in the material removed. Nevertheless, Dr Huang did a fantastic job, reducing unwieldy 42DDDs to neat, perky 38Cs. She opted to leave the unaffected breast 10% smaller than the cancer breast because after Radiation, the cancer breast would shrink, and that way they will be the same size, which is perfect. Dr Huang is a no-nonsense perfectionist, who simply gets it done. I would recommend that anyone with large breasts who is faced with the devastating diagnoses of Breast Cancer have a reduction at the same time. It is hard to consider all your options when you are told you have cancer, but this is an opportune time to have the reduction if you'd ever considered it before. First of all, insurance is likely to cover it as the Lumpectomy breast will be smaller after the procedure, and no one wants that lopsided look, and secondly, I am convinced that the second cancer may not have been found if I hadn't had the reduction. Probably not the case for everyone, but I feel very lucky. I couldn't be happier with my surgery or my surgeon, and would recommend Dr Kathy Huang to anyone needing this procedure. Not enough praise is made for the reduction surgery, vs the enhancement surgery, but I cannot tell you how pleased I am that I had it done!
Making the decision to get plastic surgery was very difficult for me. I struggled for a long time, and when I finally decided to move forward, I was concerned about finding a skilled surgeon who would provide me with the best possible results. After all, breast augmentation is so personal and I had so many feelings bundled up in it -- my self-consciousness about my body, my desire to be feminine, and so on. I really, really wanted the surgery to be done right. I'm so glad I found Dr. Huang! She is warm, kind, and made the process feel personal -- I felt like she saw and cared about me, and not like I was just another body to mold (which I had previously feared). She listened carefully to how I wanted to look and patiently worked with me to determine the best size implants to achieve what I wanted. She was respectful of my decision and was supportive throughout the process. On surgery day, I think her bedside manner was unparalleled. I am an only child, and my mother accompanied me to the hospital and waited during my surgery so she could take me home afterward. My mother was extremely nervous, even more than I was. Dr. Huang completely understood and was a calming presence; she took the extra effort to put my mother at ease and went to speak to my mother as soon as the surgery was over (while I was still waking up from the anesthesia) to tell her that everything went smoothly. I'm so grateful to have a surgeon who cares that much. And lastly, the results: they are incredible! I couldn't be happier with the outcome. In addition to being a kind, thoughtful person, Dr. Huang is undoubtedly very skilled at what she does. It has been 3 months since my surgery, and while my scars are still quite visible (I'm hoping they'll fade with a little more time), my breasts are even, symmetrical, and have become very soft and natural-looking. Exactly what I hoped for. Having been extremely nervous about my decision to get breast augmentation, I am relieved and so happy with the outcome. Many, many thanks to Dr. Huang, her fantastic staff, and the wonderful folks at Sibley Memorial.
