David Kim MD Rhinoplasty - San Francisco, CA

Having broken my nose twice it was really bothering me, aesthetically and breathing wise. I checked out a few surgeons but after meeting Dr. Kim I was sure he was going to be the doctor I would work with. I really am delighted with the result, my husband even says it's better than the original version before the accidents and I do have to agree with him. The result is lovely and natural and my ability to breath well has gone from night to day, I had no idea how bad it was I had become so used to squeezing air through the scar tissue that was in there. I am sleeping way better now too and my husband reports no snoring. I'm not hiding from the camera anymore either, which is a lovely feeling! Dr. Kim is frank, informative and he has a great team of professional and competent people working with him.
I agree it would be nice to see some photos to actually see how good Dr Kim is, but i don't seem to have stumbled across him on Real Self before so thank you for sharing! I have seen Dr Kim on youtube and am almost obsessed with his videos -he really knows what he's talking about! And he seems like a really great man too, i am considering him and another doctor. Thank you again for sharing!

Very grateful for your review! It is seldom that I find reviews on Dr. Kim with photographs. Your nose looks terrific and is the nice natural result I feel I should have received the first time around! I hope you continue to enjoy your nose. May I ask if any cartilage grafting was involved? Thanks for sharing!

Hello, I didn't need one but Dr. Kim had warned me it might be necessary but he'd really only know once he got in there. I'm so sorry your op. was a disaster for you, it would have sent me to a dark place if this had not gone well . Best of luck in your search and it can be fixed so just be patient, wait the year to heal and then it will be done with.
