5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Dr. Kim is Wonderful! - Mission Viejo, CA

Dr. Kim is wonderful!! I lost over 100 pounds a few years ago (through diet and exercise) and had a lot of excess skin around my tummy area. My friend recommended Dr. Kim to me and besides loosing weight, having a tummy tuck was the best thing I've ever done for myself. Dr. Kim did a wonderful job and my tummy has never looked better. The transformation is amazing!. Dr. Kim is patient,...

Breast Implant Removal and Liposuction on Axillary Area - Mission Viejo, CA

I got my implants 8 years ago and it's time to remove them. I just want to be me; the natural me. I was beautiful before my surgery and I just wanted my old me back. So my search for finding the right Doctor began. Shortly after my search, I found just the right Doctor: Dr. Daniel Kim in Orange County, CA. I'm a sucker for a good service, extra exuberant customer care, and most of all...

53 Year Old Muffin Top - Orange County, CA

I come to the realization that all the money I have spent on clothes to cover my muffin top was in vain. And decided to deal with the root cause. I met with a lot of Doctors. And didn't feel any connections until Dr Kim. Kind, smart and took the time to help me understand the process. Great office staff!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Removal

53 y/o explant & capsule removal after 23 yrs. & upper eyes. Newport Beach, CA

Absolutely amazing experience. He is such a kind and caring man. Dr. Daniel B. Kim and his staff made me feel comfortable from the moment I walked into his office. I found him through RS. I first talked to a couple of ladies on this site who really liked the explants he did for them. One being "mouthymodel". It's priceless to be able to see the work a surgeon has done and to be able to talk to that person. Also one of the ladies in his office had her eyes done by him and they looked beautiful. During my 1st consultation Dr. Kim went over in detail all the questions and fears I had about doing my explant and upper blepharoplasty. He spent a lot of time with me for which I am very grateful. I also liked that he was very supportive of my decision not to implant. The day of my surgery I was kind of anxious and he put me at ease. After talking to him I was excited to see what I was going to look like. He is very artistic. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to have any plastic surgery done.

Yes, I'll Take an Explant, Some Good Health, and a Side of Self Confidence Please!! - Mission Viejo, CA

I would honestly recommend Dr. Kim to anyone! He is a kind, compassionate, and patient individual (I ask a lot of questions). From start to finish I was made both comfortable and confident by him and his staff. He was realistic with me about the outcome, but at the same time offered solutions for any problem that could arise without trying to deter me from my decision, or talk me into anything ridiculous (like new implants, or a lift that I did not need). He always answers my questions clearly, and then adds more info on top of that! I was given both his cell phone number and email and encouraged to contact him day or night if I had questions or concerns. The combination of his bedside manner and knowledge and talent as a surgeon led me to make the decision to have him do my procedure. I am delighted with my outcome, and would go back to him again!!

(1yr update explant + lift) Happy to see them go - 350cc silicone gummies removed on 11/5/13

I'm so glad we found Dr. Kim. He is amazingly detailed in his approach. Not only that, but he really spends time with you so you get a chance to know him to see if he is a good fit. He made me feel comfortable every step of the way. I always felt like I was in good hands with Dr. Kim. He is professional, caring and a great surgeon. My result was better than I could have expected. Very happy!

From a 38 DD to a 38 C; and Loving It! Newport Beach, CA

Dr. Kim was professional and attentive to my wants and needs. He listened to what I expected as the outcome of the surgery and delivered precisely. I would recommend Dr. Kim highly. His office staff and hospital staff were wonderful.

Breast Implant Revision Gone Wrong In Orange County, CA Is Now Fixed In Fort Lauderdale, FL

Dr. Daniel B. Kim was very courteous before and after surgery but the final outcome was disappointing (see before photo). I highly recommend Dr. Don Revis (5 stars) for future PS work, he has a wonderful procedure called the "internal bra" which holds everything up and reshapes the breasts to look amazing. (See after photo!)
