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
