When considering breast augmentation three physicians recommended Dr. Kim. Throughout the process I felt very comfortable with him as he listened to my concerns and answered my questions thoroughly. His suggestion to include a mini-tummy tuck met my goal to enhance my figure. I trusted his artistic eye and experience to make appropriate decisions for my surgery and have been extremely happy with the results. My new breasts look and feel very natural and are the perfect size for my physique. The tummy tuck flattened my tummy, defined my waist and removed excess skin left after three c-sections. Dr. Kim and his staff are kind professionals who are accessible and informative. I am very pleased with my results and highly recommend Dr. Kim.

Dr. Kim's credentials speak for themselves. I too am a huge fan of Dr. Kim and his staff. My experience with Dr. Kim and his staff is one that has exceeded my expectations in terms of expertise, kindness, genuine concern and professionalism. Two brilliant surgeons at Northwestern Memorial Hospital were recommended to me after my mastectomy. I saw Dr. Kim first with the idea of meeting the other surgeon as a second opinion. I came to the appointment rather apprehensive because I didn't know what to expect. After 35 minutes of talking with Dr. Kim and his assistant, Ashley, I was so taken in by his kindness, warmth and confidence that I cancelled and never saw the other surgeon nor did I seek any second opinion whatsoever. Almost a year later, I am beyond pleased with the results. He and his staff gently guided me through the process of reconstruction and patiently answered my questions and addressed my concerns. Today, I am healthy and I look amazing. I thank Dr. Kim's expertise, his kind thoughtful words of encouragement and his sweet gentle nature for helping me feel and look as great as I do today. I would equally have to applaud his staff and express my heartfelt gratitude for their kindness, warm hugs, humor (when I needed it) and professionalism. I confidently urge anyone seeking a true professional to meet Dr. Kim and his staff. My gratitude is beyond measure.
