Dr. Kim is the best!

I had a breast augmentation by Dr. David Kim and it's only been a month and I can't believe how great they look already . Dr. Kim gave me the exact look I asked for. If anyone is considering getting their breasts done look no further because Dr. Kim is the best their is!

Interview

He seems to be interested in performing his talent on skinny girls with little problems...... He asked me to mail him my pictures and all he said is I need a tummy tuck. Nothing else. He has not responded to me. I think he has a lot of patients and cares less if he misses on one.... So disappointed

My third breast aug, third times a charm

Went for an exchange of implants and revision due to a crappy job from another surgeon. It took 3 surgeries with dr. Kim to finally get perfect boobs. I have 800 ccs and the larger you go, the more problems occur. They were slightly off and needed a small adjustment. Now they are perfect and I am happy. It was costly, stressful and involved me traveling from New Jersey all 3 times but I think he is worth it.

One Star

I would recommend going to a MD that has more experience with rhinoplasty, not someone who fixes boobs everyday. I look at my nose everyday and want to cry and avoid taking photos at all cost.

Bad Best Augmentations

I had 2 breast augmentations with Dr. Kim along with liposuction. Most BAs were uneven and with bad scars (I still have an awful scar on one side). The lipo of my legs went fine but my stomach was left bumpy and uneven. His office has attacked a reviews on another sites and even told patients they were made-up. Let me tell you - they are not. The women who contacted me got my whole, long story. He will never admit he messed up. He even blamed me for not getting scar patches when I specifically asked him about this on the 2nd one and he said not to. I wanted to hit him after he said that. He's not mean but he's just emotionally vacant. I think it's all about money to him. For my first surgery I told them I needed to drink water or they'd never get a vein. They said I couldn't. I came in weak and white as a ghost from dehydration and was tortured for a solid hour as they tried in vain to get a vein in me (no pun intended). They finally gave me two mini waters to drink, and got an IV in me (apparently the risk of the water didn't matter if the doctors would be inconvenienced or out money). The entire time not a hello, not a friendly word as he stood nearby (and gave a girl in his office some botox and looked at his watch). The only thing he said to me in that hour was how much more he'd charge me to redo a scar. It told me all I needed to know - but by then it was too late. The 2nd time was to try and fix the first and I knew I'd pay a ton more to go to someone else - but as they say first shame on them, and then shame on you.
