5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Love my results!

Had eyes and nose done by Dr Kim. So far love the results. He takes his time and really explains everything. Felt really comfortable with Dr Kim and his staff. I knew he would do a great job as a couple of my friends who went to him first really loved their results. He is the IT doctor in the Korean community.

27, No Kids, 5'1" 120lbs, Start 32A -> 450cc HP Submuscular))

I'm T-3 days until surgery!! Doctor and I decided on 450cc but I still havent decided on HP or Mod +.... its driving me crazy! I told myself Mod + from the beginning but now im going back and forth so confused. I want dramatically larger breasts but I want them to look as natural as possible and I dont like the look of breasts sitting high and circular on top even without a bra. Doctor...

4 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

421cc Silicone. A to C 5'9" .145 Lbs. AA - Los Angeles, CA

Dr. Kim is very kind and approachable. His work is really nice. Unfortunately he sees many patients each week and I felt the affects of his over scheduling in a few different ways. He overlooked one major request when doing my surgery. I didn't find out until my bandages were removed a week later. On that visit, I waited over an hour to see him only to feel slightly rushed. Also I was misinformed about how to use sizers to decide on my implant size. Now I can only hope that they settle to look fuller on the bottom
