Love my New Pair! - Beverly Hills, CA

I researched plenty of doctors from all over the area but ultimately decided on Dr Kim. This is saying a lot since I traveled all the way from San Jose, CA and took a plane several times to see him. Dr Kim has tons of photos on his website which is what persuaded me. Not only does he have plenty of before and after photos, the after photos are true pieces of art. In terms of the actual procedure and the results, I am pleased. If I could change one thing, it would be size. Then again, I told the Dr "as full as a C without looking fat". That being said, I think the results are natural and beautiful. If I had to do it all over again, it would and I would do it with Dr Kim. More so, my nurse Shirely was great. Thanks Dr Kim and team! =)

3 Week Post-op - Beverly Hills, CA

I think if I am going to do anything with my body, I would want the best skilled surgeon to do it. I choose Dr.Kim for that reason. I did a lot of research on him and his work, and he seemed to be one of the surgeons who were proud enough of their work to show numerous pictures. It seems like he treats each of his patients like a masterpiece, with care, to get really good looking breasts. I only found one other surgeon i thought was equally as good. but i choose dr. Kim because i felt like he knew what i wanted more and what i was more concerned of--looking fake and my cleavage line being too far apart. I must admit he wasn't very personable at our consult, but he was informative. He does his consult on your anatomy and what you're looking for. He didn't seem like he was trying to sell himself really, but that's a good thing because it means he's just professional. plus, I hate it when people try to sell me stuff. And choosing a surgeon should be because the surgeon is good and qualified, not because you like their personality. not saying he has a horrible one, it just seems like he doesnt care if you like him, and doesnt feel the need to make you like him; like those smart kids you know that don't really care to make friends with you (if that makes sense); so some of his answers, or the way it sounds, or the way he talks, just sound kind of like he's answering a ridiculous question. but for a doctor, I feel like he is pretty young, but he is definitely good at what he does. I am sure he worked harm to get where he is. And he's pretty good looking for a doctor. if i could go back in time, i would become some kind of surgeon. probably an orthodontist though because i like teeth, and people need their wisdom teeth pulled out! Doesn't sound as hard as the other procedures, but it probably is since there's lots of nerves connected to mouth and brain? Idk. The consult time wait was quite a while though, probably 30 mins; he consult actual time wasn't that long, probably 10 mins. Anyway, he really cares about your results, so expect to have a lot of post-op visits after surgery. I think I saw him 3 times in the 2 weeks after surgery, and i am going to see him when it's my 1 month, next week. So far I love my boobs--they look so real!! :D i really hope they look even better or stay the same.

Been There, Done That.....3 Times!! - Beverly Hills, CA

I had 3 sets of breast implants and one rhinoplasty done with Dr. Kim since 2007 and I will never set foot in any other plastic surgery office. He has my business for life. In my opinion, Dr. Kim is truly an artist with the human body - and one of the best there is. He is both a caring individual and a perfectionist, which in plastic surgery, are two amazing qualities. His results also speak for themselves. Every set of Dr. Kim breasts I've ever seen have been symmetrical, balanced and beautiful. From the moment I met Dr. Kim, his expertise and artistic ability was apparent. He took the time to examine me and explained the procedure fully. I even showed up with a 2-page list of questions, ALL of which were answered before I even had a chance to speak! I felt confident that he would give me the results I was after--- a natural but full look, and a scar-less breast augmentation. The results exceeded my expectations. His staff is friendly and always willing to answer questions. His patient coordinator, June, is a lovely woman who also takes the time to speak with you and address your concerns. They have a wonderful practice and I look forward to every single follow up appointment. His aftercare is second to none, and he is extremely hands-on about making sure his patients heal properly. You're never turned away no matter how long ago your surgery was. Dr. Kim-- I cannot thank you enough for your care, attentiveness, talent and artistry. You are a blessing to the Plastic Surgery field and I am honored to be a patient of yours.

Breast Lift & Implant = No Regrets - Wish I Would've Done It Sooner

He is board certified. He did an excellent job - I have fantastic breasts. He has lots of before and after surgery pictures on his website (I am leery of surgeons who have only a few pics or none). I was referred by my girlfriend who had implants fixed after one implant fell down from another surgeon. His repair work on my friend was great - she has fantastic breasts as well. They provide excellent aftercare instructions and education.
