Our Work Week In Belize

I try and make it a point to take one mission trip per year. This year, we had the pleasure of volunteering in Belize to treat people in various regions of the country. The team consisted of doctors and staff in the specialties of medicine, dentistry, oral surgery, and audiology. A total of 1,598 patients were able to be seen between the specialties throughout the week! Hats off to the Belize Mission Project for assembling such a passionate and devoted crew from across the country!

I took one of our nurses, a surgical assistant and one of our office managers (that has surgical assistant skills) to help me be as successful as possible to meet the needs we would encounter. As you can see the conditions are vastly different then what we are accustomed to.

Meet Katie Our Medical Aesthetician

We are sure most of you know by now that Cammie moved to Arizona a couple months ago.  Before she left, Cammie helped us hand pick someone that would take care of you in the same caring and expertise way as she had over the past years.  We knew the next Medical Aesthetician needed to be someone that represented Dr. Schmid and Dr. Kim in the same excellent manner that Cammie had.  We interviewed a lot of candidates before we felt like we had found the right person to take over Cammie’s position and clients.  It is with great pleasure that we introduce Katie to you. She graduated at the top of her class from The Salon Professional Academy and continues her education with comprehensive classes and seminars designed to give clients like you fabulous results.

Here are a few non-aesthetician facts about Katie. Katie grew up in the suburbs north of Dallas, TX and moved to Melbourne in early 2016. She has a horse named Hank and many parrots, some of whom she has adopted. She enjoys traveling, bird watching, and spending time with her animals.

We are so sure you will be pleased with Katie’s skills as a Medical Aesthetician that we will back that up with offering you $10 off your next aesthetician service if you come in for a service before the end of 2017. Just mention that you read this offer on our New Image Maxillofacial Blog and we will reduce our regular charge for your service by $10.

Katie’s email address is [email protected]  You can book your service through the office number, just as you have in the past (321.255.7724).  And of course we will be still be carrying the same product lines of OBAGI and ZO.

Educating Others

I am excited to announce my appointment to be a part of the board examining committee for the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.  Education and educating others is very important to me and I am very eager to start this process to help our specialty grow.  I hope to also engage in more speaking opportunities at various meetings to fulfill my desire to be part of the educating endeavor.


Dr. Kim


Are you one of those people with unwanted fat under the chin?  Are you interested in removing that undesirable fat in the neck?  Come on by and we can discuss some options for you.

There are a couple of different options when it comes to tightening up the neck area.  Kybella is a relatively new product which offers a minimally invasive way in which fat can be dissolved with a series of injections directly into the fat.  Kybella is deoxycholic acid which is a substance which in the office setting under simple local anesthesia, can actually melt away the fat and make it gone forever.  It is indicated for people who have that plump neck especially under the chin, with no extra loose skin.  Very important to remember – Kybella cannot tighten up skin.  But if the skin is already tight, and the fat is the problem, then Kybella may be right for you.

The great thing about Kybella is that the downtime is very short.  3-5 days of mild swelling and redness is all that is usually present.  Please also keep in mind that multiple vials may be needed to achieve your desired look.  One vial per appointment will be injected into the neck.  If needed, another vial will be injected 6 weeks later.  Any subsequent vials that are needed would be injected six weeks apart.  On average, 2-3 vials are needed to dissolve all of the fat to get the look you want, but it depends on how much fat that is present.  Of course, if there is a lot of fat to remove, more than 3 vials may be needed.  This would be determined by checking the neck every six weeks and the amount of improvement that is seen at each visit.

So, what if you have excess loose skin and fat in the neck?  What then?  Likely the correct procedure for you to achieve a fantastic result is the necklift.  A necklift is more invasive, and requires incisions behind the ear and just below the chin, but are very inconspicuous.  Liposuction would then be utilized to essentially suck the fat out, and then the excess loose skin would be removed to make the entire neck rejuvenated.  The necklift is a wonderful procedure for the fat neck with loose skin, the neck with loose skin only, and also for people who want the two bands (called platysmal bands) in their necks removed.  It is a more versatile procedure which treats more severe concerns in the neck, and results are usually terrific.  Please refer to before and after gallery of necklifts to see results.  Also refer to the necklift page to get more information regarding the procedure and downtime.

Now we know that something can be done about an undesirable appearance in the neck.  Kybella injections are an option and the necklift is an option.  Both are effective, but each procedure is suited for different situations.  Kybella is injections done on multiple visits, and the necklift is one time surgery.  .  Downtime of course for Kybella is much less.  But it is downtime on multiple occasions instead of just one like the necklift.  Come on in for a free consultation to discuss options for your neck!

Thank you for reading,

Dr. Kim

A Christmas Party With Clue Solving and Italian Food

The office closed at noon. All changed out of scrubs into festive attire, drove to West Melbourne and entered the Escape Zone.  The staff and doctors split into two groups – a group led by Dr. Kim tried solving the clues to the CSI room, the other group led by Dr. Schmid tried their hand at the Shipwrecked room. You only have an hour to solve all the clues and unlock the door to get out…did they escape?????

Dinner followed and was enjoyed by all at the Dove.  We had not all made it to The Dove when the photo was taken, but you get the idea…we were ready to continue on with the party.
