Bethany King, MD is double board-certified in Facial Plastic Surgery and Otolaryngology (ENT). She completed her undergraduate training at Tulane University in New Orleans. She then attended the Louisiana State University Medical School in New Orleans where she graduated with honors, being conferred membership into the AOA (Alpha Omega Alpha national medical honor society). Her postgraduate training continued with a general surgery internship at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, followed by completion of residency training in otolaryngology/head and neck surgery at the nationally recognized ENT training program at the University of Iowa. Following two years in private practice working as an ENT in Massachusetts, she then pursued a AAFPRS fellowship in facial plastic surgery at the highly respected Glasgold Group in Highland Park, NJ, with an emphasis on cosmetic surgery. She is now double board certified in both ENT as well as Facial Plastic Surgery.
Prior to coming to Kansas, Dr. King worked in New Hampshire where she actively practiced both ENT and facial plastic surgery. She built an extensive practice of improving the nose through rhinoplasty and treating skin lesions, both benign and malignant, reconstructing the skin defects after cancer was removed. During that time, she became a master at skin care, minimally-invasive treatments such as fillers, Botox, chemical peels and lasers. Dr. King moved from New Hampshire to Overland Park in 2016 expressly for the experience of working with SonoBello where she performed more than 150 facial cosmetic surgeries, the large majority of which were facelifts) in the first year and developed the skill to be able to provide full facial cosmetic surgery without general anesthesia, a skill that is not widely accessible. She went on to perform more than 800 body liposuction and avelar tummy tucks over the following 2 years with SonoBello as well.
Now that she is in Wichita, Dr, King brings her previous experience with her and is able to focus on her greatest passion: reversal of the signs of aging in the face. Dr. King is the only board-certified facial plastic surgeon west of the Kansas City area whose entire focus is cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the face. Her expertise, artistic talent, and constant focus on the face have led to exceptional skill. This, coupled with her unparalleled bedside manner and care of her patients, has resulted in very high patient satisfaction.
Dr. King approaches her practice with a focus on understanding and educating her patients. She gives them the tools and support to tolerate whatever they are going through. Whether the process is illness or elective cosmetic surgery, she works hard and takes the time to fully explain the issues at hand. “I believe taking the time to listen to my patients and to do a thorough surgical job leads to better outcomes and happier patients.”
