325cc Moderate Plus Silicone - Beverly Hills, CA

Like many other women, getting a breast...

Like many other women, getting a breast augmentation was a way of boosting my self confidence. Since high school, I always wanted fuller breasts.

I decided to go with silicone implants because the texture was softer than saline. I chose to have my incision under the areola because doctors told me it heals the fastest. However, I've noticed that my nipples/areola are very tender and sensitive. I am hoping that once fully healed, the sensation will resume back to normal. I underestimated the healing time as far as resting the first week. I scheduled my surgery 2 weeks before my summer school final, which wasn't a good idea. Everyone heals differently, but I would advise to not schedule surgery within a 3 week span of important obligations. Another downside of the procedure is the anesthesia causes pretty bad nauseousness, but my doctor prescribed me anti-nausea medication which helped.

All in all the pain and money spent was totally worth it.
Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon

After making numerous consultation appointments with plastic surgeons, Dr. Kim won me over. His office was clean and modern, his staff was welcoming, he was professional and did a great job of making me feel comfortable. Most importantly, he does wonderful work. I specified that I wanted a natural look in proportion to my body size. He answered all of my questions before I even asked them. On the day of my procedure, the nurses were so nurturing and sweet and made sure that I was at ease. The procedure felt like it was 5min. Dr. Kim answered emails very quickly whenever I had concerns during the first couple of weeks. Although I experienced moderate pain (felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest), it subsides after a few weeks and was well worth the results. I am now 7 weeks post-op and have received so many compliments! Most people who didn't know I had the surgery were surprised when I told them. The best feeling is not having to wear padded bras and feel confident in bikinis. My only regret is that I didn't do this sooner!
