"I had a medical concern unrelated to my tummy tuck, and when I told her about it she reassured me everything would be fine, and offered advice and a referral to the best doctor if I had needed it...." "Dr. Kim was wonderful, she understood my desire to have breasts that would not hinder my physical activities." "Her staff is incredible and always helpful !"

New Boobies Finally! - The Woodlands, TX

I can't say enough wonderful things about Dr. Kim and her staff! Everyone is so sweet and caring they make you feel right at home. Dr. Kim is truly an artist and provides incredible results. I have wanted a breast augmentation for as long as I can remember, the only regret I have is not having done it sooner. Not only have I gained more self confidence, I actually look forward to summer now!...

Downsizing the DDD's - The Woodlands, TX

I am one week post op today. I had an implant exchange and lift with Dr Kim. I cannot speak highly enough of Dr Kim and her team! From the time I came in the door at my consultation I felt at home and welcome. Dr Kim's staff has been quick to respond with any silly questions preoperatively, and any concerns since surgery. She came highly recommended from friends, and I would make the same...

Breast Augmentation, 26 Years Old - The Woodlands, TX

I had a breast augmentation performed by Dr. Sugene Kim with SGK Plastic Surgery on October 1, 2015. I was an A cup before the surgery and decided to go with 500 cc, 45 profile for the procedure. I had a wonderful consult with Dr. Kim prior to surgery and she was very informative about what to expect before and after the procedure and also how to decide what size and profile would best fit my...

Revision Surgery Tomorrow! 8 months post op!

Dr. Kim is a great doctor. She spends time with you to explain the procedure and makes sure you are comfortable. I have had numerous surgeries and she is the only one that has come into the recovery and spoken to me about how everything went after I woke up. She had already spoken to my family but waited and stayed at the hospital until I woke up and talked to me as well.

Words Can't Express my Gratitude - The Woodlands, TX

I first had a Body Lift and recently had a breast lift/extra skin removal from massive weight loss. A year later and the staff is the same. Nice, friendly, helpful and I basically feel like part of a family now.

Better Than I Could Have Ever Imagined - The Woodlands, TX

I have now had two surgeries with Dr. K after massive weight loss. I have never in my life felt so cared for in a doctor’s office however not only from the doctor but her entire staff. I can always call with any question and they answer it with a smile. I visited about 5 other surgeons and almost didn't have any of the surgeries until I met Dr. K and then I was comfortable and ready. It wasn't about the money although she was one of the cheapest quotes. It was about the compassion and understanding. Listing to what I wanted and needed. The hugs and happiness I get when I visit the office. Please at least meet her if you are on the search for a surgeon.

Everything I Hoped for and More - The Woodlands, TX

5 out of 5 stars Botox

I Overcame my Fears and Glad! - The Woodlands, TX

I had botox in the 11 lines between my brows. I have always had a tendency to furrow ever since I was little watching TV or looking at the computer. My creases were at times so bad I would get "tan lines" in the sun if I relaxed my forehead. The lines had recently started showing up in pictures and I knew I had to do something to at least keep the creases from getting worse if...
