Our Mission Trips


A great privilege of being a plastic surgeon is the opportunity to participate in international mission trips. We have traveled abroad to perform reconstructive surgeries to help both children and adults in other countries, including Guatemala, China and Mexico. We are thrilled to share the following galleries of some of the inspiring people we have met through our journeys.


Guanajuato, Mexico

Hospital ISSSTE in Guanajuato, Mexico has hosted many generations of Stanford plastic surgeons invited by the renowned Dr. Abel de la Pena to engage in an intense weekend of plastic surgery and cultural exchange.  The Mexican and American plastic surgical teams work late into the night to take care of cleft lip and palate patients.  Dr. Lim traveled with Dr. Bill McClure on this very special trip.
