Dr. Kenneth Kim and his staff were absolutely wonderful, from your first consultation meeting to your post-opt checkup!! They are incredibly professional and caring - not your typical doctor and patient relationship. Dr. Kim is extremely humble, given his incredible and impressive academic accolades. He takes his time to speak with you and answer your questions thoroughly, truly with your best interest at heart. I am so HAPPY with my double eyelid procedure results, I can't thank Dr. Kim enough for what he has done for me! Dr. Kenneth Kim is one awesome and amazing surgeon!!!

I normally don't write reviews for anything, but Dr Kim did such a great job on my eyelid surgery that I thought others will benefit from hearing my experience. I had double eyelid surgery over 10 years ago and the surgeon didn't do a good job. Also, I had significant ptosis and he did not address it. I've researched plastic surgeons in korea and in the US. Dr Kim is an amazing plastic surgeon. He is compassionate and caring. He has an unmatched talent for aesthetics. He is meticulous. He is honest in what is realistically possible to achieve. He has amazed me (and my family) at how well he was able to take my small, mis-shapen, droopy eyelids and created such natural looking and beautiful eyes. Being a revision surgery I am thrilled with the results. I am 3 months out and I couldnt be happier. Thanks Dr Kim!

This was a quick office procedure with no recovery time/after care. I was able to go out that same evening and felt great.

I was going to wait a month for my eyes to heal before posting a review, but I am so happy with the results (after 1 week) that I think Dr. Kim deserves an immediate post. If you are looking specifically for a specialist in Asian eyes be wary of websites which post pictures of models and not actual patients (I found this to be the case about 40% of the time.) Also be sure to check for a clear medical background. As for the pricing, I was quoted a very reasonable price range over my initial skype meeting which was honored when I made the trip to L.A. In all I had three procedures which costed $4500. - epicanthoplasty (cutting of inner eye) - traditional incisional technique - treatment of ptosis in both eyes This was a big decision for me and I am grateful for the chain of events and research which led me to Dr. Kim's office. It is nice to find someone with the skills and sense which allows me to trust his decisions as my surgeon.

Asian Eyelid Surgery
I selected Dr. Kim based on recommendations from several people. I flew in from Michigan to have Dr. Kim do the Asian double-eyelid surgery. Just before the procedure, I reading some of the on-line reviews of Dr. Kenneth Kim. I almost reconsidered my decision to have my eyes done by him. I am so glad I didn't! He recognized how nervous I was by the fact that I was white-knuckled during the procedure, so he talked to me about the economy, my job, the weather, etc, during the entire procedure to keep my mind off of what was going on. That really helped -- and he was right.I could tell that Dr. Kim has dedicated his life to his field, and takes his work very seriously. I would recommend Dr. Kim 100%!!
