5 out of 5 stars Slim Lipo

Slimlipo to Hips & Inner/outer Thighs

5 out of 5 stars

Best Thing I Have Ever Done! - Honolulu, HI

I viewed their website and contacted their office. I must first preface that I am extremely fearful when it comes to needle let alone surgery. Walking into Dr. Shim's office, it was very modern but also welcoming. This was my third consultation and once I met Dr. Shim, I knew that he would be the doctor for me. I feel like I radiate confidence and thank Dr. Shim and his entire staff for helping me look the way that I feel!

Dr. Ching is the Fountain of Youth! - Honolulu, HI

I chose Dr. Ching because I saw him on television discussing laser liposuction and having met him the first time, I felt calm and confident that he would be able to help me look and feel younger. I liked that they based my surgery upon my needs rather than just the standard price that I got from a few other doctors.

Cellulite is Gone! Thanks Dr. Ching! - Honolulu, HI

I am beyond impressed with him. He is very professional, highly skilled, and provides excellent results! So glad my friend referred me.

5 out of 5 stars Laser Hair Removal

Dr. Ching is Amazing! - Honolulu, HI

I am very pleased with my experience at his office! I was referred by a friend, and am so grateful she was right about him. I have never had any work done before (really), so even going for laser hair removal was pretty intimidating. I had heard some horror stories about lasers so I really wanted to make sure I went to a good office. A friend highly recommended Asia Pacific Plastic Surgery (she got breast implants from Dr. Ching and loves them!) Dr. Ching's office was beautiful, the staff were friendly, and everything went smoothly! The aesthetician that did the treatment was very sweet and made me feel as comfortable as could be. I join my friend in honestly highly recommending Dr. Ching's office if you're looking for a good plastic surgeon, or considering getting anything cosmetic done.

4 out of 5 stars Brow Lift

Two Weeks Post Op from Brow Lift, Upper and Lower Eyelid, Mouth Corners - Honolulu, HI

I would have like to have seen my surgeon at my post op instead of just the nurse who removed my under eye stitches. I did not see my surgeon until visit number 3 when my staples where removed.

3 out of 5 stars CoolSculpting

So Far Nothing! - Honolulu

The MD did not perform this treatment. It was done by his so called "trained medical staff". She was not a doctor, nurse practioner or nurse. She informed me she was personally trained by the Zeltiq representative and that is all that is required. No license is necessary. The M.D. validated this information.

Happy with my Results! - Honolulu, HI

I have a friend who recommended Dr. Ching.

3 out of 5 stars Smart Lipo

Inner and Outer Thigh Smart Lipo in 2013 Left Me Iwth Deformed Thighs and a Destroyed Body Image - Honolulu, HI

Dr. Ching was pleasant, his office staff was pleasant but the results was very bad. I never went back for a third time. No one contacted me after the procedure to see if I was doing ok. I just came back the next day for my appt.

2 out of 5 stars Laser Hair Removal

Extended Bikini Laser Hair Removal - Honolulu, HI

I never saw the doctor. However, the staff was friendly. The laser treatment was done in 20 minutes or less. I was also uncovered in the patient room, fully exposed as the staffmember stoped the treatment and excused herself and opended the door. There was no curtain for my privacy and another staff came to the door as I was laying there waiting for my extended bikini laser treatment. When I wanted to schedule a consultation for a tummy tuck I was told by the staff that the doctor does not do partial tummy tucks and the rates are of a full tummy tuck because the doctor wants the tummy's flat. I then felt that it was a business looking out for themselves only and not the patient. I was at my ideal weight with little fat and no need for muscle repair. I found an office which was willing to meet my needs on an individual basis.
