Hello! My name is Dr. Michael P. Lin and I am a reconstructive plastic surgeon at Kaiser Permanente Downey Medical Center. I grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and I am a Steelers fan. I attended college in Philadelphia at the University of Pennsylvania, where I earned a BSE/MSE in computer science. Later I went to medical school at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore and completed a plastic surgery residency at the Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery Institute at UC Irvine. I decided to become a plastic surgeon because I enjoy the creativity, detailed nature, and aesthetic aspects of reconstruction of the human body. I feel that reconstructive surgery provides great functional and psychological benefits to my patients, and can significantly improve quality of life.
