Get to know Dr. Johnson
After graduating Summa Cum Laude from the University of Arizona she went on to obtain her medical degree at the University Of Arizona School Of Medicine in Tucson, AZ where she was elected into Alpha Omega Alpha – the most prestigious medical honor society.

Dr. Johnson specializes in both reconstructive and aesthetic Plastic Surgery of the entire body. She trained at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center – voted the #1 Plastic Surgery Residency in the country. Beyond the foundations of learning how to be a skilled and safe reconstructive surgeon, she pursued further training with renowned plastic surgeons across various institutions focusing on facial rejuvenation, breast reconstruction, and body contouring.
She believes every patient is unique and requires a specialized approach to surgery – whether it is deemed “reconstructive” or “cosmetic”, Dr. Johnson seeks to restore form and function, in a beautiful and safe manner, from pediatrics to geriatrics and everyone in between.
Patients of Dr. Johnson’s appreciate her knowledge and expertise, coupled with an approachable and caring demeanor.
She enjoys accompanying patients through their surgical journey knowing that with restoration or improvement in one’s appearance, comes a renewed sense of self with increased confidence and self-esteem.
As the first person in her family to pursue a career in medicine, Dr. Johnson is thrilled to bring her skills and medical expertise back to the heart of the Midwest with her husband and family. Outside of the operating room, she enjoys cooking/baking, weight-lifting/spinning (which allows more of the former activity), as well as boating and skiing.
