5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Doing Great!!!

I am the mother of 2 kids ages 4 and 2. After my daughter was born, I was diagnosed with severe hypothyroid. I already struggled with my weight as a child/young adult...winning the weight battle at 23 when I lost 25 pounds and was 150 pounds. Once my thyroid stopped working, it became IMPOSSIBLE to lose weight. I was 165 when I became pregnant with my son. I went up to 183 and 6 months after I...

Breast Lift with Implants, Removal of Axillary / Accessory Breast Tissue (Arm Boobs), Flank Lipo - Chicago, IL

I have been stalking for the past few months before my procedure and couldn't find anything on removing the axillary breast tissue so I figured I'd share since it was part of my experience. On February 12, 2014, I had a breast lift with 250CC implants, axillary breast tissue removed on both sides that included lipo and skin excision and also added flank lipo (I mean...why not, I...

Excellent Experience with Breast Reconstruction - Chicago, IL

I had amazing results after bilateral mastectomy and radiation. I was able to have a nipple sparing procedure, and now have silicone implants. My radiation delayed the final exchange to implants by about 4 months, but it allowed the skin to heal fully from the radiation, and now my skin and new breasts look great!

Excellent Doctor with Exceptional Staff - Chicago, IL

Dr Kim and his staff are some of the best around. I had a double mastectomy with breast reconstruction - not only is this procedure emotional but physically daunting. Dr Kim was incredibly patient with answering all of my questions and providing realistic expectations for the surgeries, recovery and outcome. Dr Kim and all of the nurses were always so attentive, and I could not be happier with...

Great Doctor, Great Results - Chicago, IL

My experience with my breast augmentation was wonderful, and I'd definitely do it all over again. My doctor, John Kim MD, was fantastic from start to finish. He was thorough, realistic about expectations, patient, and above all else an incredibly skilled surgeon. My pre-op, procedure, and recovery all went exactly as he described it would. I would definitely recommend both Dr. Kim, and the...

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Best Doctor Ever! - Chicago, IL

I've seen a few different plastic surgeons and dermatologists in the city and no one compares to Dr. Kim. A few of my friends and I all agree that Dr. Kim does excellent work, has a great rapport with patients, and the results are amazing. This last experience of receiving Botox was by far the best results I've ever had!!

Bilateral Implant Exchange,capsular Correction with Acellular Dermis,fat Injection - Chicago, IL

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Best Breast Augmentation, Implant Exchange, and Mastopexy Ever - Chicago, IL

I have to say that Dr. Kim is probably the only plastic surgeon I have ever felt comfortable with. I had a breast augmentation and a lift in 2004 with another surgeon and it was a terrible operation leaving me with ugly scars and even uglier self-esteem. I’ve been wanting to correct this, among other problems, for a very long time, it was interfering with my life. I did my research and...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Great Results! - Chicago, IL

When considering breast augmentation three physicians recommended Dr. Kim. Throughout the process I felt very comfortable with him as he listened to my concerns and answered my questions thoroughly. His suggestion to include a mini-tummy tuck met my goal to enhance my figure. I trusted his artistic eye and experience to make appropriate decisions for my surgery and have been extremely happy with the results. My new breasts look and feel very natural and are the perfect size for my physique. The tummy tuck flattened my tummy, defined my waist and removed excess skin left after three c-sections. Dr. Kim and his staff are kind professionals who are accessible and informative. I am very pleased with my results and highly recommend Dr. Kim.

I Didn't Want to Do It, But...- Chicago, IL

I am from a family with a lot of cancers, one of which was breast cancer for my mom, sister, and maternal aunt. So when my breast started to "misbehave" (atypical ductal hyperplasia), I knew the wait and see approach wasn't a good answer for me. Two friends from my neighborhood had dealt with breast cancer and had used the team of Bethke and Kim. I went running with my slides and was told that...
