After interviewing several physicians I decided to go with Dr. Kim. Professionalism is extremely important to me but so is the character of the physician, the attitude, and personality. He made me feel comfortable, he was confident but not arrogant. I trusted his expertise and I was not disappointed. Thank you Dr. Kim! Judy G.
I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Kim for Asian eyelid surgery (upper eyelid blepharoplasty)!!! My results turned out better than I could have ever imagined. Dr. Kim really took the time to listen to me and what I wanted. Together, we carefully planned out where the eyelid crease would be, and it is exactly where we had planned! I also had a quick and somehow painless recovery, which I’m sure much of that can be owed to his excellent surgical technique. I feel so much more beautiful and confident after this surgery. My only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner in life. Thank you, Dr. Kim, for quite literally changing my life, and thank you to his wonderful staff who made this such a pleasant and efficient experience! JA
