5 out of 5 stars Lower Face Lift
I was unhappy for several years with my sagging neck and wrinkles on my face. I consulted with other Plastic Surgeons and found Dr. Kim to be professsional, knowledgeable and reasonable in pricing. Dr. Kim recommended a lower facelift and neck lift. I am very pleased with the outcome of my surgery and highly recommend Dr. Kim and his caring staff. As a result of this surgery I have a much...
5 out of 5 stars Botox
Dr. Kim is so professional and warm. He has performed skin cancer removals on my face and neck, and the result has been great. The scars are nearly invisible. I also go to Dr. Kim for botox injections a few times a year. His prices are affordable, and my forehead is natural-looking and wrinkle-free.
So far Dr. Kims has been wonderful. Great doctor, great reviews, very honest and so happy I chose his practice.

5 out of 5 stars Facelift
We interviewed three doctors and Dr. Kim gave us the most confidence. He also came highly recommended by individuals who work in the field. We found Dr. Kim to be very personable. He took the time to explain everything and answered all our questions. We never felt rushed. He has a great bedside manner and his staff were all very friendly and professional. On the day of the surgery he made us feel comfortable and at ease. We felt we were in very good hands. He was attentive after the surgery and called a number of times to assure we were doing well. Our results are very nice. We both have received compliments on our appearance from people who did not know we were having a procedure. We do not looked pulled at all, but very natural and quite a bit younger. My dermatologist & several of his staff recently commented that they were impressed with the work of Dr. Kim. My friend and I are both are very pleased we did this and highly recommend Dr. Kim. If we have any further procedures, we will certainly go to Dr. Kim again.
5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction
Dr. Kim and his staff have been wonderful. I have had a minor complication, but trust that everything will be great. Dr. Kim called me several times in the days after my surgery to check on me. After a follow up appointment where I had to have some tissue removed, I was a bit emotional after Dr. Kim left the room. When I got home, Dr. Kim personally called me to make sure I was ok. He spent about 10 mins on the phone with me going over the issues and resolutions, as well as comforting me with how I was feeling. That call just made me feel so great about my having Dr. Kim as my PS.
5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
When I went in for my consult he took the time to talk to me, didn't make me feel like I was holding him up like other surgeons I had gone to see. I immediately felt comfortable and secure with my choice and have never doubted my first impressions. I scheduled my surgery that day, was given my pre-op instructions and scheduled for a pre-op visit. Dr Kim also called me prior to surgery to see if I had any questions that I needed answered the night before the surgery and to verify what meds I should or should not take the day of. The day of surgery was smooth and hassle free. Dr Kim came in the pre-op room to chat and make sure I was comfortable. Answered all my questions while he was making his marks. He was extremely friendly and joking around considering he had just finished another surgery before me. Since surgery the one-on-one attention has continued. He called every couple days and talked to my aunt to see how I was doing, making sure I didn't need anything and had no issues with meds. My follow-up appointments have been just as friendly and thorough as my consultation, much to my surprise. (I haven't had much experience with surgeons and I had always assumed that once they had your money and did the work you were pretty much off their radar). I had a seroma that had to be drained several times and when I asked for a local I was given one, no questions asked. I've had to call 2 or 3 times to ask questions of the nurses and they always get back to me within the hour and have even called Dr Kim to verify, and then he calls me back as well to make sure they relayed the info that he wanted them to. I have just loved my time spent in that office and I could not have asked for a better experience! I recommend him every chance I get and plan on getting more work done as soon as I can! I will upload photos as soon as I can...living alone makes it hard to get good after pics.
