5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Healing Nicely but Still Swollen

***This is the CORRECT doctor, thanks for fixing the problem, RS*** I have only positive things to say about my experience with Dr. Kim thus far. On my road to rhino, I consulted with four surgeons, two in my hometown, including Dr. Kim, and two in Beverly Hills. Dr. Kim is the only surgeon not in private practice which was a bit unusual to me at first, but ultimately I’m glad he works in a hospital setting because it made me feel that much safer about the procedure and anesthesia. I also am happy I chose a surgeon who specializes only in facial plastics. Getting his office on the phone was my only initial problem because you’re first sent through the hospital systems phone tree and you’re not sure if you’re calling the right place. But ultimately, I made it. Dr. Kim’s bed side manner is superb and he showed a genuine interest, concern and game plan for what I wanted and I’m able to communicate with him naturally and without reservation. We had similar visions for my end results & I am eager to continue working with him in my recovery.

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Natural Looking Rhinoplasty - Portland, OR

I have gone back and forth on wanting rhinoplasty for years. I have been reading reviews and researching doctors. What was important to me was a doctor who wasn't just a plastic surgeon but also an ENT. Dr. Kim was the only doctor I did a consult with. Not only is he well educated, and knowledgeable, he has a wonderful bedside manner. He relates to his patients and speaks in words you can...

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Full Facelift, Lower Bleph, Nasal Tip Refinement, Liposuction Beneath Chin, Sciton Laser Resurfacing. Portland, OR

I had the pleasure of having my facelift performed by the skilled hands of Dr. Michael Kim. My procedure included full facelift, lower bleph., nasal tip refinement, liposuction/undermining beneath chin, and Sciton Erbium Laser resurfacing. My initial Consultation was very thorough addressing all of my questions and concerns. I felt I was in "Expert" hands as Dr. Kim is strictly a Facial/Occuloplastic Surgeon whose talents are specialized in this area. His staff were always courteous and helpful with any/all appointments made by accomodating my work schedule. All post-operative instructions for my after-care were explained and demonstrated by Dr. Kim's Esthetician, Kay Ford, and his PA, Elizabeth Knapp. Overall, even though I am only two weeks post op, my results are incredible. The laser resurfacing was the "Icing on the cake"! I am so happy Dr. Kim recommended this procedure as an adjunct to my facelift. My "New" skin is so smooth. My nasal tip is now more refined and feminine, not "Pinched" or "Pointed".......but instead, natural. My eyes are now brighter and I no longer look tired. The laser resurfacing also tightened this area as well. The best part is that I look like "Me"........... only refreshed.

5 out of 5 stars Lip Augmentation

Happy with Procedure - Portland, OR

I chose Dr. Kim because of the high feedback and review of his other patients. After the initial swelling went down, the result was very natural-looking and complimentary. Dr. Kim knew just how much to fill for a natural result. His staff answered any questions I had and the whole procedure took almost no time at all. I will definitely go back.

34 Year Old Happy with Rhinoplasty - Portland, OR

I've wanted rhinoplasty since my teens, and now finally seemed to be the right time. Dr. Kim was the only surgeon that I met with, but I was so impressed by him and reputation of OHSU that I decided to have my surgery there without consulting anyone else. I felt much more comfortable having surgery in a hospital setting rather than in a private clinic. Dr. Kim was great. After examining...

5 out of 5 stars Juvederm

Juvederm Lip Filler--upper Lip Only - Portland, OR

Dr. Kim is a fantastic facial plastic surgery artist. He is precise and works from the insides out to make sure the body still functions as it's meant to. I didn't bother with any numbing agents for my lip procedure and found the pain tolerable and at some points even a bit pleasurable. Dr. Kim and his entire crew are so helpful and charming. They have made my big makeover year a great experience that I would easily do again, and recommend to anyone.

Rhinoplasty for Previously Broken Nose, and Reshape - Portland, OR

Twenty years ago I was dancing and was elbowed in the nose by a strong man. I have lived with a large bump on my nose ever since and didn't have the courage to get it fixed. When I finally had the courage to talk to some doctors, I felt most comfortable with Dr. Kim. After consulting three top Portland surgeons, I felt Dr. Kim took his job most seriously, and is the master of his field. He...

5 out of 5 stars Chin Implant

Chin Implant Removal - Portland, OR

I came to Dr. Michael Kim for implant removal. (Another physician had inserted the chin implant.) Dr. Kim was an attentive listener. He assured me to the process, potential issues that might arise, and expected outcome. He did a very good job with the surgery. I have little scarring. He provided a second followup visit to access whether my symptoms were resolving. Since I had seen multiple specialists to resolve right facial pain issues, I appreciated his consideration of the concerns driving implant removal.

5 out of 5 stars Juvederm

Feminine Look with Juvederm Lip Injections - Portland, OR

I cannot say enough good things about Dr Kim. He knows how to give lips a plumped defined look. I expressed my fear of the pain and he let me have a pain block shot. He made it so my lips still look like my lips, just so much better. My bottom lip is still smaller than my top lip even though he injected both top and bottom, and I'm glad because it still looks like my mouth and not "done". After 3 1/2 months, my lips are still plump and defined.
