Dr. Kim is a great doctor. She spends time with you to explain the procedure and makes sure you are comfortable. I have had numerous surgeries and she is the only one that has come into the recovery and spoken to me about how everything went after I woke up. She had already spoken to my family but waited and stayed at the hospital until I woke up and talked to me as well.

I first had a Body Lift and recently had a breast lift/extra skin removal from massive weight loss. A year later and the staff is the same. Nice, friendly, helpful and I basically feel like part of a family now.

I have now had two surgeries with Dr. K after massive weight loss. I have never in my life felt so cared for in a doctor’s office however not only from the doctor but her entire staff. I can always call with any question and they answer it with a smile. I visited about 5 other surgeons and almost didn't have any of the surgeries until I met Dr. K and then I was comfortable and ready. It wasn't about the money although she was one of the cheapest quotes. It was about the compassion and understanding. Listing to what I wanted and needed. The hugs and happiness I get when I visit the office. Please at least meet her if you are on the search for a surgeon.

Dr. K is double-board certified and studied/trained in some of the best universities/hospitals in the United States. That makes all the difference.

Dr. K's office made me feel comfortable. They answered all my questions shared experiences and help me define my expectations. When I went in to have the procedure done I was ready. It started on time, this was very important to me. It told me that Dr. Kim's staff was responsive and professional. The prep nurse and after care nurse were there to help me stay calm and ready to comfort me.

After 3 children and several years of research, I met with Dr. Kim and Lynsey for a "Mommy Makeover." I had lots of built up nerves and a some hesitancy going in but I felt immediately comfortable and confident that this was who I wanted to do my surgery with. Equally important, this was the perfect staff to help me through the planning and recovery process. This was a first class experience for me as they were all so knowledgeable, personable, and answered all my questions quickly and thoroughly. Better yet, even with my indecisiveness over my BA sizing and lipo, they were extremely patient and listened to all my concerns and reassured me that they understood exactly the results that I was wanting. They held my hand the entire way through. By the end, I met just about every person on staff and they are all just amazing and the best at what they do. My results are everything I always dreamed they would be and I feel so thankful that I found Dr. Kim. I could not have asked for better results or experience. I am forever grateful to everyone at SGK Plastic Surgery!

I hate that i have to rate this early on, but since i can't post any updates nor pictures without rating then here it is, Dr. Kim is an excellent doctor, so far, i think she has done an amazing job. In general you'll learn that your experience with a cosmetic doctor and their staff is not at all what you'd expect from any other doctor and their staff. Again though, Dr. Kim is a doctor i would highly recommend and would go see again for any future concerns. She is gentle, soft spoken, very knowledgeable and does an amazing job. I want to add that i never thought anything i can do can fully and completely get rid off my big long old scars, i am not sure how Dr. Kim did it, but she did it! I have nothing left from my old scars, even my stretch marks look so much less and they look finer. She also personally contacted me over the weekend regarding the issues i had with her staff and she was very apologetic and sincere, she wanted to know all the details which speaks volumes about how much she cares about her practice and patients. So far, loving Dr. Kim.

I did a lot of research before selecting a surgeon and knew I wanted a surgeon with a great reputation and proof of great work. From the many forums I read and participated in, as well as Dr. Kim’s own web site, I got the proof I needed in both awesome previous work and recommendations. That was enough for me to schedule a consultation appointment to either confirm or rule her out. At my first appointment I was “SOLD”! Dr. Kim and her entire staff instantly made you feel like family and showed genuine care and concern for you, individually, and took the time to completely answer any questions / concerns. They remained “family” throughout the entire process as well as after and I could not be happier with my breasts. Dr. Kim is a very talented artist who actually cares about you, what you want to achieve, and how you feel. Dr. Kim and her staff were very pleasant in answering any and all of my phone calls with questions and concerns before the procedure and would even call me to check on me and make sure I was still comfortable with my decisions. I could not imagine having had a better surgeon, better experience, and most of all, better results with my breasts. I highly recommend Dr. Kim and her staff.

I choose Dr Kim off recommendations from friends and online. Her pictures on her website were a big push forward, too. I just completed my breast augmentation with Dr. Kim recently. She is fantastic to work with. She listens to your needs and wants, then discusses with you the options that she can provide to you safely.

I went to have a breast augmentation and she really messed up. My nipples point down, and she charged me extra, saying that she had to reposition them because i needed a breast lift. I wanted the implants through the bottom of the breast but she insisted on going through the nipple because she had to lift them. She did a horrible job, i am embarrassed to show them.

When first visited the Dr I thought her and I were on the same page and after the surgury we were not obviously. The work I wanted was not done she stated that the recovery was going to be what i wanted and its worst then when I went in. Everyone one that knows me asks "what happen" and I say I was in a wreck. Now that its been a yr later I went to see Syle Lift and spoke to the Dr there and he will rectify what Dr Kim did and well give me the look that I paid for in the first place. I would NOT recommand her for any facial procedures.

I knew that I liked Dr. Kim from the minute I met her. She has a very professional and friendly presence. She does an amazing job explaining things and is willing to go over them multiple times until you understand. Her staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. Her nurse has excellent follow up if you call in with any questions or concerns. I highly recommend Dr. Kim to anyone considering plastic surgery. I am very pleased with my results and the care and follow up she has given me since my surgery.

I saw Dr. Kim's website with the before/after pictures and decided to set up a consultation.

She was my niece's surgeon for a mommy makeover. I had four consultations before deciding on Dr. Kim. She and her staff answered questions that no other doctor did, or basically "sluffed off". I had been considering breast augmentation for several years and I was so pleased with with everyone at her office it made my decision so much easier. Any questions that I had prior to surgery, and I had a lot, were answered without hesitation. Her staff was extremely patient with me when decided on the size on implant, and the day of surgery, I spoke with Dr. Kim about the size and she recommended going a little bigger and I could not be happier with her recommendation!! Post op, she called that same evening to check on me which was quite surprising and very pleasing. My post op visits were handled very well, and even though I was not as prepared with my questions, her staff allowed me to email them with any questions that I had and they answered them promptly. They continue to be just beyond reproach with their professionalism, kindness and knowledge. I have to say that it was one of the most pleasant experiences of surgery that I have ever had. I would highly recommend Dr. Kim and have already done so to several of my friends.

I am thankful to Dr. Kim and her staff for always being so pleasant and most of all so helpful and completely upfront with me about what I could expect from Cellulaze and what it would take from me to have optimal results. KUDOS Dr. Kim and SGK staff.

I went to SGK for Juvederm treatment and met with Dr. Kim's nurse, Liz. She was so down to earth and easy to talk to that it made me comfortable and at ease while making a decision that I was still unsure of. There were no hidden costs; after Liz explained to me how many syringes it would take for my treatment another staff member came in and signed me up for a rewards program for each future treatment I want to have and told me exactly what my total would be so that I could decide if I still wanted to have it done. I am so happy that I decided to have Juvederm!! It's a small difference so not everyone notices that "something" was done; but it's enough to make people tell me I look great; which is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you SGK Plastic Surgery for making me feel so comfortable and having a staff that understands even these small decisions can make a big impact for people like me.

Dr. Kim is very pleasant and has a wonderful bedside manner. She explained the procedure to me from beginning to end. Words can not describe her staff how wonderful they were and how they were there for me from the start. I could call her staff and all my questions were answered. Wonderful place to go.. Thanks Again... I found Dr. Kim from word of mouth their experience...
