5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Happiness! Beverly Hills, CA

Dr. Kim and his staff were amazing! He took all the time to answer my questions and prepare me for a realistic result. Post surgery he continued to be accessible 24/7 and I could not be happier with my flat tummy. The scars are beautifully seamless and will only improve with time! Liz, his case manager, is amazingly personable and managed a fantastic deal for me, including a payment plan. ...

Tummy Tuck - Great Results! Beverly Hills, CA

On March 2014 I decided to make a lifestyle change. I began to eat healthier and worked out 6 days a week. I managed to loose 45 lbs! I was really happy but my stomach got worst wrinkled and saggy.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Happy Camper - Beverly Hills, CA

This is my second surgery with Doctor Kim. As you can see I came back because he does an awesome job! I had a Tummy Tuck back in 2012 and the healing process was easier with his instructions. I can honestly say that my scar faded away to the point that it's a small red line. I'm now healing great from my breast reduction and I must say they look nice. It was a big change from double DD to a C...

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

Girl Who Wants to Look Her Best - Beverly Hills, CA

I had cellulaze procedure and liposuction done by Dr. Alex Kim in January 2015. He is an amazing doctor and a wonderful person who got me the results I wanted. He was very understanding of my condition which made me feel physically disfigured and affected me emotionally. The procedure went very smoothly . I recovered very fast, and I looked as good as new. I am so happy with my results, and so...

25 Years Old Looking to Remove 300 Cc Silicone - Beverly Hills, CA

Aloha everyone! I am 25 years old and had a BA in 2012 hoping to go from an A cup to a B cup. However my dreams were crushed when I walked away as a 32 DD. I had 300 cc areola incision under the muscle and I am 5'9" 115 lbs. You can imagine how unnatural this looks on me. My breast implant on the right is now sliding down and I have rippling on both sides just standing up as well as when I...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

64 Years Old, Breast Flap Reconstruction After a Mastectomy, Using Muscle, Tissue and Fat from my Abdomen - Beverly Hills, CA

I thought I would be "out of it" for a long time, but that only lasted about 48 hours. I was up the day after surgery and was walking pretty good 5 days later when I was discharged. I thought there would be more pain, but it wasn't too bad. There was more discomfort than pain, especially because of the drain tubes. It was a very good experience. The office staff was pleasant, friendly and...

5 out of 5 stars Acne Surgery

Best Plastic Surgeon in L.A - Los Angeles, CA

When I entered the facility, I was warmly greeted by the front desk staff. The coziness of the room was decorated with degrees and achievements from who I assume were from Dr Alex Kim. I was thrilled to know that Dr. Kim was going to be able to remove a cyst from my face. I was comfortable/welcomed.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

After 5 Years of Deliberation. Beverly Hills, CA

WOW is all i can say! I have wanted a breast augmentation for 5+ years and have searched high and low for a doctor that i actually felt comfortable with and someone that wouldn't give me that fake breast look. When I looked at Dr. Alex Kim's work online, i had to get a meeting with him. The moment i walked in the office i had a good feeling. His office is very family-like. Veronica and Kim at...

A Woman Had a Mid-life Crisis & Did Not Want to Die Ugly. Beverly Hills, CA

I can always buy luxury items and exotic clothing to make myself think I look good. BUT I WAS NOT HAPPY AT ALL!!! That is until I underwent my cosmetic procedures with Dr. Alex Kim.
