5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction
My doctor was awesome and honest! However, he does seem to have a preference to stay a little larger rather than smaller.
5 out of 5 stars Mentor Breast Implants
Dr. Sumida is a wonderfully talented surgeon. He put me at ease from the very minute he walked into the room. He's a Warm hearted and caring doctor who answered all of my questions and my husbands too! Dr Sumida is knowledgable and confident. I knew I'd be in great hands with him, in fact, I scheduled my surgery the same day as my initial consultation because I felt so comfortable with this surgeon. The office staff is super sweet and there are no crazy wait times for the doctor. He is prompt and professional, which I really appreciate. My husband hit it off with him immediately as well. 100% positive experience. I am so fortunate to have found such an amazing surgeon.
5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
No complaints at all. Even after many consultations with other ps my husband and I both felt totally comfortable with Dr. Sumida and his staff. Returns calls immediately even on his day off to answer any questions you might have. His visits are always on time and he really spends time to reassure you all is going well. His staff is excellent, all the way from the office staff to the nurses to prep you for surgery to the anesthesiologist. .every one of them made a stressful scarey situation a breeze..Dr. Sumida sends you flowers after surgery and calls you that eve to see how you are doing..im very happy with Dr.Sumida and would encourage anyone in this area to at least have a consultation with him if your looking for a great experience.
5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
I'm the mom of 2 great kids. My first pregnancy stretched my stomach so much that it was not recognizable. I knew then that I wanted a tummy tuck, but I wasn't done having children. After 6 years, I had my second child and knew that our family was complete and had my tubes tied 1.5 years after my last pregnancy. My youngest is now almost 2.5 years old and I'm ready to get my body back. I'll...

Hello my BBL sisters. I'm back and this time hopefully things will work to my satisfaction. I had a BBL done in June of 2012. I was very disappointed with my results. (See Above Screen Pic). Don't get me wrong, the lipo did help flatten my stomach, but I did not have enough fat to do my butt!! My doc told me to gain weight and come back in a year. I'm getting excited all over again!!...
5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
Dr. Sumida is an artist. He sculpted my body into exactly what I wanted. His staff is wonderful and he has really changed my life! Not only did he flatten my tummy and remove the inner tube around my middle but free of charge he also fixed the dimples on my outer thighs and made my butt perfectly round. My body looks better then it did before kids and I am still in "swell hell" so the final result is still going to be even more amazing! If you live in California and are thinking of having any plastic surgery, Dr. Ken Sumida is the best and ONLY decision! One appointment with him and you will see. He is passionate about his patients and is just plain THE BEST! He also called to check on me as well as sent a beautiful flowers home with me. I am very impressed!
5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
Dr Sumida was amazing . He was very informative and caring. He really listened to what I wanted and delivered. I even got flowers right before I went in for surgery! After the surgery the staff called to check in on me that night which I appreciated alot. I'm 3 weeks PO so far but I can already tell I will have like zero scar! The incision is right under the niple and I was able to get a quick peak when stiches were removed! He's a fantastic doctor very positive, him and his staff are so helpful with any questions or concerns even if I get annoying.(I call all the time) so far I'm beyond happy and can't wait to see my end result.

In addition to the above, Dr. Sumida didn't try selling me on a more costly lift procedure or getting replacement implants. After examining me in the initial consultation, he said I would look just fine having them removed and he was right. That showed me he has integrity as well as great skill and experience.
So after 2-3 years of contemplating whether or not to get my boobs done, I finally just said go for it! I had my first consult with Dr. Kennett Sumida in Folsom, Ca. I love him! I was referred to him by a friend. His energy is great and he made me feel really comfortable. We tried on implants at my first appt. When I tried on sizers, he said I should feel uncomfortable lol. I really liked...
