He joined the practice in 2015 and has since only added to the high quality experience that this premier plastic surgery center is known for. Originally a Baltimore native, Johnson completed his undergraduate career in the Washington, DC area, and then subsequently stayed in the Metropolitan region.

His superb skills and desire to remain nearby is how he secured a position with Greater Washington Plastic Surgery Associates.

Over the course of his career, he has received exceptional training and has been mentored by international leaders in plastic surgery. He has consistently been a top performer throughout his surgical training, and has also earned extremely high ratings from patients. While completing his education and residency, he was considered to be dependable, knowledgeable, and a technically excellent surgeon.

A graduate of Georgetown University, his academic achievements led him to be on the Dean’s List multiple times while earning his B.S. In addition to his studies, he served as a mentor for minority students who also shared an interest in the health profession. The community service effort was part of the Minority Health Initiative Council (MHIC) at Georgetown University. He then received his M.D. at the Emory University School of Medicine, where he was awarded the William C. Warren Scholarship, the Harris Family Scholarship, the Helen Dobbs Scholarship, and the Irene Woodruff Scholarship, and also served as a Chair of the Honor Council. He then returned to Georgetown for his Integrated Plastic Surgery residency where he learned the principles of plastic surgery as well as the latest plastic surgery techniques.

Since quality is key, Dr. Johnson is always studying, learning, and staying up to date with the latest trends in medicine, in order to be at his best for the patient. He stays abreast of the most current discoveries through his attendance of plastic surgery meetings and conferences. He has gone to numerous highly regarded events such as The Aesthetic Meeting sponsored by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Northeastern Society of Plastic Surgeons annual meetings, and many more held around the country. He has also attended instructional courses such as The Curtis National Hand Center Flap Course held in Baltimore, and the ASMS Advances in Facial Restoration and Rejuvenation course held in New Orleans. His own work is also a factor that cannot go unmentioned, such as his peer-reviewed papers on cancer research published in the American College of Surgeons and published abstracts in the Journal of the American College of Surgeons and Georgetown University Undergraduate Journal of Health Sciences. He has also given outstanding podium and poster presentations ranging in subject matter and taking place at events from the Annual Southern Surgical Association to the Georgetown University Undergraduate Research Conference to name a few. His current research includes two-stage breast reconstruction, advanced limb salvage technology, and complications of fat grafting.

Dr. Johnson’s understanding of his craft and personable demeanor fit right in with the level of integrity, quality and patient care the practice is known for. He now resides in the wonderful Washington, DC area where he joined Dr. Vineet Mehan at Greater Washington Plastic Surgery Associates.

Skin Graft

Dr. Johnson is highly skilled and did a great job. [Single best thing is...] It healed fast.

Skin Graft

Eliminated infection of ankle tendons,

Treatment / Procedure

No complications and surgery was outpatient.

Treatment / Procedure

Dr. Johnson and all of the staff were friendly and well informed.

Skin Graft

I went in for a skin graft but it was decided at my appointment that my incision site was healing very well and a graft was no longer needed. I was so happy to not have to have another procedure or scar site. They were able to pull up a picture over my current wound site to compare which was pretty cool and we were able to see very clearly how much I had progressed.

Skin Graft

Seems to have worked so far.

Reconstructive Surgery

Toe amputation went smoothly and little to no pain. Dr. Johnson did not jump to a decision to amputate all toes but instead wanted to see how the foot would heal seeing as the foot seemed to be getting more blood flow.

Reconstructive Surgery

[Single best thing is...] getting the ability back to walk on my right foot because the broken ankle was healed with many surgeries. Left is an indent on the inner right ankle. A drainage wound happened for about a month and is being treated with an antibiotic dexycyline. And I am wearing compression stockings which help the drainage a lot.

Office Visit / Follow-up

Dr. Johnson's care and expertise were excellent.

Reconstructive Surgery

He saved my leg.

Office Visit / Follow-up

Dr. Johnson is very thorough and meticulous in his work. This was my fourth surgery for an open wound caused by Cyberknife radiation.

Skin Graft

Dr. Johnson has exhibited a very quiet approach in the hospital & his office. All of his staff have been very kind & helpful. My skin graft has healed & looks very good. With all that Dr. Johnson has worked with multiple Drs. on my case. He treats me like I'm his only patient. My case started in Nov 2018 & has continued the current time. There is nothing negative to say. My skin graft has healed very well. It continues to heal and blend with my skin. The donor site is over 50% healed.

Skin Graft

Saved my leg

Skin Graft

[Highly satisfied] because he did what he said was going to be done and is very good at it.

Skin Graft

Dr. Johnson explained to me in plain terms that my husband's wound was too big to close, ultimately needing a skin graft while he was in the trauma ICU. Dr. Johnson and team explained clearly and precisely on the timeline and wound care that led up to the skin graft a few months later. When my husband was finally ready to get his skin graft done, they walked me through the process and aftercare that would need to be taken by the hospital staff. They answered all my questions and I could not have felt more comfortable with leaving my husband in Dr. Johnson & his teams' care. And believe me, we've seen so many different doctors over the last 4 months...Dr. Johnson definitely makes the top of my list!

Autologous / Flap Reconstruction

Easy appointments around work schedule. Dr. Johnson explained procedures well, very friendly and competent.

Facial Reconstructive Surgery

Very excellent care we received. [Single best thing is...] Good plan of care , pre and post operative.


It eliminates the danger of recurring infection. Repaired an unhealing wound. At present I am recovering from the surgical after effects.

Skin Graft

Seriously, I’d be highly satisfied if I didn’t have to have the surgery. Dr. Johnson has done a fantastic job trying to repair my issue.
