5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

One Awsome Doctor - Los Angeles, CA

Dr. Kenneth Kim and his staff were absolutely wonderful, from your first consultation meeting to your post-opt checkup!! They are incredibly professional and caring - not your typical doctor and patient relationship. Dr. Kim is extremely humble, given his incredible and impressive academic accolades. He takes his time to speak with you and answer your questions thoroughly, truly with your best interest at heart. I am so HAPPY with my double eyelid procedure results, I can't thank Dr. Kim enough for what he has done for me! Dr. Kenneth Kim is one awesome and amazing surgeon!!!

Revisional Eyelid Surgery with Ptosis Repair - Los Angeles, CA

I normally don't write reviews for anything, but Dr Kim did such a great job on my eyelid surgery that I thought others will benefit from hearing my experience. I had double eyelid surgery over 10 years ago and the surgeon didn't do a good job. Also, I had significant ptosis and he did not address it. I've researched plastic surgeons in korea and in the US. Dr Kim is an amazing plastic surgeon. He is compassionate and caring. He has an unmatched talent for aesthetics. He is meticulous. He is honest in what is realistically possible to achieve. He has amazed me (and my family) at how well he was able to take my small, mis-shapen, droopy eyelids and created such natural looking and beautiful eyes. Being a revision surgery I am thrilled with the results. I am 3 months out and I couldnt be happier. Thanks Dr Kim!

Botox in Masseter Muscle - Los Angeles, CA

This was a quick office procedure with no recovery time/after care. I was able to go out that same evening and felt great.

A Fortunate Find After Months of Research - Los Angeles, CA

I was going to wait a month for my eyes to heal before posting a review, but I am so happy with the results (after 1 week) that I think Dr. Kim deserves an immediate post. If you are looking specifically for a specialist in Asian eyes be wary of websites which post pictures of models and not actual patients (I found this to be the case about 40% of the time.) Also be sure to check for a clear medical background. As for the pricing, I was quoted a very reasonable price range over my initial skype meeting which was honored when I made the trip to L.A. In all I had three procedures which costed $4500. - epicanthoplasty (cutting of inner eye) - traditional incisional technique - treatment of ptosis in both eyes This was a big decision for me and I am grateful for the chain of events and research which led me to Dr. Kim's office. It is nice to find someone with the skills and sense which allows me to trust his decisions as my surgeon.

traumatic experience - Los Angeles, CA

Wanted a tapered fold Traumatizing experience. -VERY rude receptionist named Rosa -Wanted to get tapered fold, but insisted I get open fold. I decided to listen to him because he is the doctor, but def. regret it. Because my eye was not meant to have an open fold, the 3-DST left my eyes aysmmetrical and with multiple lids. -He said I would need to get ptosis, only to know that...

Consultation Review: Worst Doctor Ever

Rude and unprofessional. I was the first appointment of the day and arrived 5 minutes before my consultation to do all the paperwork. I was informed that Dr. Kim was running behind and would in within 10 minutes, but that 10 minutes was more like 40 minutes. The waiting room was starting to fill up and finally Dr. Kim arrived. They brought me into the room and Dr. Kim sat down and I told...

Worst Eyelid Surgery Ever!!!! - Los Angeles, CA

2 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Terrible bed side manner and post-op treatment

I received a breast augmentation from the doctor earlier this year. Though he does great work in terms of the surgery, I was very disappointed with his bedside manner. The entire establishment is very poorly run. When I had arrived for my consultation, Dr. Kim spoke the entire time, leaving very little time for Q&A. I had to schedule a follow up consultation with him where my questions...
