24 Yr Old, No Kids, 500/550 Ccs Silicone - Beverly Hills, CA

Show More I been preparing for my ba for a long time so I read a lot of reviews in advance. I prepared myself for what others were saying about him being cold and what not, but I thought the interaction was great. I even saw him smile a couple times which definitely warmed things up. I am usually a person that gets nervous but I didn't feel that way when I talked to him. He knows what he is talking about and so I completely trusted him. He pretty much answered all my questions before I even got to ask anything which was great. I had seen his work so I knew I was in great hands. He is extremely busy so you might not get that much time with him but what you get is enough. He is also very good at responding to emails. I would get a response that same day or the the next day depending on the time I sent it. He doesn't leave you with any doubts and I am extremely happy that he's my ps.

Natural full breasts Mentor 375cc Mod Plus Dr David Kim Beverly Hills

Show More I've been trolling the internet since I was a teenager, in hopes of securing the right and best breast surgeon I could find. I found Dr. Kim in 2005 and was immediately star struck by his personal aesthetic. Realistic-looking, full breasts, 100% of the time. Especially with social media and reality TV, the public is bombarded with names of "celebrity," "Hollywood," "plastic surgeon to the stars," surgeons. We all have incredible access to information that didn't exist, even 5 years ago. There are so many surgeons with incredibly impressive curriculum vitae, and years of extensive training and experience. While qualification is most important, there's no circumventing the value and influence of each individual surgeons personal aesthetics on the outcome of their patients. Dr. Kim is renowned, board certified, published; well-respected among colleagues and trusted by his patients. It is patently clear that Dr. Kim delivers consistently beautiful work. He is adept at translating patient desires. He is upfront about limitations and sets up reasonable expectations. Dr. Kim's office personnel and consultants are pleasant, polite, and clear, offering prompt service and correspondence. Dr. Kim is truly second to none.

Petite Girl, Breast Augmentation 375 Silicone HP - Beverly Hills, CA

Show More Dr. David E Kim is a professional. He is a wonderfully skilled surgeon who exceeded my expectations! He is very polite, knowledgeable, informative, and patient. He answered all of my questions during my initial consultation, and was very patient. He has never kept me waiting longer than 5minutes. Keep in mind that the post op appointments are very short, and quick sometimes, but they don't need to be longer than what they are. If you have any questions keep them handy! He is very busy, and has appointments back to back. I think he does a great job at checking your progress over the few weeks that follow surgery to ensure that you're healing well and offers many tips and advice. Follow his advice, do your massages, and you should do well!

500cc Mentor High Profile Silicone- in Love with Them!! - Beverly Hills, CA

Show More Dr David Kim is a true artist! I recommend him to anyone and everyone. I felt he was very quick and thorough with all my questions. He was professional and made me feel comfortable and confident in my decision to have this surgery done by him. I felt I had plenty of time with him during my appointments even though he had tons of ppl in the waiting room (he's a popular guy) he even cracked a joke while I was there, he definitely has a sense of humor. Anyways, he exceeded my expectations from day 1 and definitely think if you want amazing quality care and results that he is the doctor to see :)

Show More Amazing doctor. He understands boobs period. He is ultra high end but worth every penny. Very impersonal but his time is money clearly. His countless perfect results speak for themselves, and his judgement for aesthetics is spot on. IF you want it done right the first time, dr Kim is your man.

Best Boob Doctor in LA! (Trust Me, I Did my Research....) - Beverly Hills, CA

Show More Grace, Angel, and the other girls who work at the front are fabulous and made me feel immediately comfortable. Their staff does not have a snobby, beverly hills vibe like other offices I went to. If I'm spending this much money on a procedure, you would think all doctors would a have friendly staff..but unfortunately that wasn't the case.

Love my New Pair! - Beverly Hills, CA

Show More 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! =)

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

Show More 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.

3 Week Post-op - Beverly Hills, CA

Show More 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.

I Want BEWBIES!!! - Beverly Hills, CA

Show More Overall, I give Dr. Kim a strong five stars - I wanted beautiful, natural looking results and he delivered! Actually, my boobs may now be too 'perfect' to look natural, definitely one of my best assets. I can't say Dr. Kim is the friendliest or most attentive, but that's not why I selected him. While I felt a little rushed at times (like right before surgery), he must have listened or known what would work best for me, because I got EXACTLY what I wanted. Once you're in a room with him, he's actually very personable and informative and his interest and professionalism is very evident. Office wait times are not always great, but still better than a lot of other places I've been to. Since my first consultation last August, he's gotten a lot busier (and raised his prices!), so I am glad I received a quote when I did! Best boob artist in LA!!
