Kim Ragone has worked with Dr. Bucky since 2000. Kimmi is the
Director of Skin Care and Injectable Services, as well as being a
clinical nurse. Her extensive plastic surgery experience provided her
with the foundation to become a superb nurse and nurse injector. She led
our OR team in caring for cosmetic and reconstructive patients during
their surgical experience.
Kim transitioned from the operating room to the office setting and became a clinical aesthetician. She treated patients with a wide variety of techniques including microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and laser resurfacing. Armed with expertise in the entire spectrum of plastic surgery, she became certified as a clinical nurse injector for BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers. Her plastic surgery and skin care education—combined with her ‘aesthetic eye’ and her soft touch—have made her ideally suited to be an excellent injector. Kimmi has developed advanced techniques under the guidance of Dr. Bucky and other leaders in the field. Her background with both surgical and non-surgical procedures provides the basis for expert consultations.
Kimmi received her Bachelor of Science Degree from Thomas Jefferson University and sees patients at our city office. Over the last two years, Kim taught other nurses and physicians the art and science of clinical injection techniques. Kimmi has instructed the Penn Plastic Surgery residents on the art and science of fillers and Botox®. She has also been an invited lecturer for the Society of Plastic Surgical Skincare Specialists on Advanced Injection Techniques and the Pearls and Pitfalls of Injecting.
“The thing I like best about injecting is the wow effect—I love it! The immediate result the patient can appreciate from the treatment chair is amazing. The patient walks out of the office feeling and looking good.”
