Dr. Kim-Chi Vu Center for Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery

Dr. Kim Chi Vu is one of only a few female Board Certified Plastic Surgeons in Portland. A graduate of Oregon Health Sciences University where she also completed her residency.

Not only is Dr. Vu certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery , specializing in cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries, but Dr. Vu also is a specialist in hand trauma surgeries. During her residency, Dr. Vu was involved in several research projects, including the heparin effect on thrombocytopenia, bioresorbable rib stabilization in rib fractures, and a clinical study on composite grafting for correction of bilateral cleft nasal deformity.

Dr. Vu’s exceptional knowledge of her field comes not only from her plastic surgical experiences but also from continuing education by attending local as well as national meetings in the field of plastic surgery year around. In addition, she has a background in hand trauma, which is a valuable complement to her usual work. While very different in some respects from carefully choreographed cosmetic procedures, emergency surgeries she performs on hand trauma patients keep her surgical skills at the highest level. “My work in cosmetics and trauma complement one another,” Dr. Vu acknowledges. “Trauma keeps me attuned to the minute level of detail that will restore function to an injured hand, while cosmetic work requires an aesthetic, almost artistic, appreciation of how the body works.”

Dr. Vu offers a full range of plastic surgical procedures which may include but are not limited to breast augmentation, body contouring surgery like tummy tuck, liposuction, or body lifts, as well as facial rejuvenation including face lift, brow lift, rhinoplasty, and eyelid surgery. Dr. Vu is also interested in pursuing areas of post-bariatric surgery and surgeries for men. Dr. Vu feel that these two areas have not been given much attention, whether due to being  sensitive topics or because these areas have not been given much media attention. “I feel that everyone has his or her own reason to wish or desire to look good, feel better and have confidence about themselves.”

Using these plastic surgery techniques and her years of experience as a plastic surgeon, Dr. Kim-Chi Vu has literally transformed the lives of her patients.
