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. ...

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

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

Dr. Alex Kim is an excellent plastic surgeon. He delivered the results he promissed me. I am so happy with my results. He is very understanding and easy to talk to, a very caring doctor. I didn"t have to wait at all. He made sure he explained all the details to me and answered all my questions. I was very confident in getting excellent results. Dr. Kim and his stuff followed closely my recovery. I had two follow up visits after my procedure during which doctor made sure everything was ok. The office stuff is very professional and caring. Veronica and Liz helped me every step of the way in getting me ready for the procedure as well as during recovery, always returning my calls and giving me all information I needed. I recommend Dr. Alex Kim to everybody who wants to get real results with a truly brilliant doctor.

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

After seeing about 6 PS in Los Angeles area, I liked Dr. Alex Kim the most. He was patient and had a great bedside manner. However we have very different versions of what natural looks like. I wish I could show you a picture of what I looked like before and what I look like now because my boobs now look really fake.

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

Dr Alex Kim did a wonderful job. He explained the procedure before hand. His explanation was detailed, which relaxed me and gave he confidence in him. Thus, I had the procedure done at the same time Dr Dennis Holmes did the mastectomy. I'm very satisfied with the results. I would definitely recommend these doctors.

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...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

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

Dr. Alex Kim will make you look the way you want to look. I would suggest for you to bring some photos of celebrities or of how you would like to look like. Don’t ask the doc how large you should make your implants. I’m sure you already have an idea of that in your head. I would suggest to always go one size bigger for your breast augmentation. I have never met anyone who wished they had gone smaller. My breasts are soft and as realistic as they can be for a D cup Asian. I’m 5’2” and I think my breasts look realistic and feel amazing as if I had had these my entire life. Dr. Kim is not the best doc with PR. I would say he is more of a savant or an artist. Just tell him or show him with pics what you would like to look like and I’m sure the doc will do his best for you. The doc is not going to force you to do surgery. He will make recommendations but ultimately you are the one who will decide what you want done. Don’t walk into his office or the office of any plastic surgeon to ask them, “Doc, what do you think I should be getting done?” If that’s you, then maybe cosmetic surgery isn’t the right thing for you at that time.
