Dr. Kim is ABSOLUTELY terrible. In Jan 2006 I got a breast augmentation, breast lift and liposuction from the inner and outer thighs and flanks. A week following my procedure I noticed heavy scarring of both of my breast and rippling of my implant. As my sutures were being removed by the "Dr" I asked why this was and he simply told me that it would get better and it was due mainly to my skin (whatever that means) and it "MIGHT" improve. Funny because I'm 5'4 and weigh 140lbs--> ;nothing wrong with my skin. Any-who, I want to remind people reading this that this occurred ONLY a week post-op. I followed-up with my scheduled appointments for about 2 months following. With each, he had a new explanation for why I wasn't healing properly. When I wasn't able to show up for an appt I called the receptionist to let her know in advance. A week later when I called to schedule another appt she told me Dr. Kim would no longer be seeing me as his patient anymore. Apparently she never received my two messages and didn't remember me speaking to her. Odd how she was nice during my consultation and progressively became rude. I suspect Dr. Kim put her up to it so he wouldn't have to answer to my concerns & questions of revision surgery. Up until this day I still bare ugly scars from my botched surgery. I am reminded everyday of the horrible job he did when I'm getting dressed and it's unfortunate. I literally gave away $19,000 for less than exceptional work. All of this is really quite tragic, but overall I have learned that one MUST DO RESEARCH OF A PHYSICIAN BEFORE GOING THROUGH WITH ANY SORT OF SURGERY THAT WILL ALTER YOUR BODY. After all you only have 1.

I would also would NEVER RECOMMEND this ''doctor'' or his "office manager'' not even to my worst enemy! Look at the woman below who have also had HORRIBLE results, Believe them it's TRUE!!!!! Please contact me if you have had horrible results as well by this person! Please know you are NOT alone and WE MUST ALL stand up and stick together this is NOT OK AND SHOULD NOT BE SWEPT UNDER THE TABLE!! I will provide pictures of my massacre AS WELL AS BEFORE PIC TO SEE THE TRUE TRAVESTY!!!!

I will NOT stay quiet about the absolutely devastating painful embarrassing massacre this person has done to my body! I have went to several other Plastic Surgeons that cannot believe what hes done and have no idea how he did such a horrific job!!

UNBELIEVABLE SCARES, HORRIFIC PAIN, UNEVEN BREASTS THERE IS NO EXCUSE!!

Despite the bad things I??ve read about doctor Roy Kim, I decided to go with him versus the other 2 doctors I had a consultation with.
Boy, I wish I listened to the reviews. He did an unacceptable job on my body. My results were nowhere close to what I imagined. I wanted an A-C cup and my breast looks the same!
In addition to my size. They are LOPSIDED! My left slopes lower than the right. The look like 2 different breast! I paid around 5k for these and all I??ve gotten are headaches! I cannot deal with him nor his office. They should not perform ANY procedures on any living human beings. Now I have to save money and find another doctor to fix the botch job he performed on me. Please be careful ladies. Paying a little more may pay off in the end.

I went to doctor kim for breast augmentation because I thought his price was fairly less than most and his overall impression was nice. But after he kept convincing me for a smaller implants I am now starting to regret the whole thing. My results is nowhere near what I wanted. They are VERY uneven which he said give it time. Its been over 6 months and it looks worse. I can also see the incision scars which I can hide but I do not recommend this doctor. After reading about all these bad reviews and possibly fake reviews on yelp, I wished I waited and took my time researching other doctors.

I could not be happier with the results I had with my breast augmentation...dr kim is the best! Let me point out to you that when I first came in for my new consultation Dr. Kim and his staff stayed over an hour after the office closed to sit with me and explain the procedure. It was all about me, which I love! I got the procedure done on a Friday and I was back to work on Monday. Thank you so much for the pain pump, it is amazing. There are no words to express how much more confident and womanly I feel. I really wish I could post my pictures on here so you could see how great they are. I would definitely trust Dr. Kim with my next procedure or procedures =). Now I have hope that I will still look great even when I get older.

I have always been extremely insecure about my smile to the point where I don't feel comfortable showing my teeth. I have always had what they call a "gummy smile" which means I show too much of my gums when I smile. I have tried everything and I mean everything! I came to Dr. Kim to see if there was anything he could do and YES he gave me a solution! He suggested I put botox above my lip so my upper lip wouldn't go as high. In less than 5 minutes my smile has changed dramatically! He put numbing cream on my lip so I didn't even feel the injection. He performed the procedure himself and talked to me the entire time, I could not have felt more comfortable. I would recommend Dr. Kim to anyone and I am going to be seeing him for future procedures.

I went to Dr. Kim for a 2nd redo. My 1st PS that i went to was very unprofessional. They gave me subglandular instead of submuscular(since thats all they did and never told me that), wrong incision area,bottomed out and rippling. I went to Dr. kim because I had a referral to him. And he charged me a decent quote to fix everything which was $6,875. Anyways I went with him even though he was hesitant that I wanted D+ Cup. I had 400cc and he was so sure that 500-550
would make me DD. But in the end result he was able to fit 660 which I am now a mid D. Not even close to DD like he thought. Anyways the office manager (Nicole)was very attentive and helpful. Up until i had complications with my redo then she was the total opposite person. Not sincere anymore,slow -to- No response to my emails. And when I saw her for a post op appt. just a whole different demeanor. Definitely wasnt the same HAPPY/PERKY attitude like before they had my money.Anyways,the redo resulted to my nipples being COMPLETELY uneven and i had rippling only to one side which he over dissected and made uneven. I asked Dr. Kim about both and his response was "thats just the way your body healed." Then i mentioned that i think he may have over-dissected my sternum. Which i believe why my right has rippling due to the pocket being too big. He made only 1cm distance between my implants. And that is way too close so i had to pay $60
for a thong bra that I have been wearing everydays ince to help kep them from getting worse. I think i have symmastia/uniboob which is the worse thing to get for breast augmentation since it is VERY COSTLY. And his same response was "thats just the way your body healed".. No sympathy or concern. I asked for 2 quotes. One to switch to silicone and another to fix uneven-ness and over-dissected sternum. I asked him if he could give me a discount and his BS quotes were $7900 JUST TO SWITCH TO SILICONE. $13,900 TO FIX THE UNEVEN NIPPLES AND OVER-DISSECTED STERNUM. He took a few thousand off both quotes which I THINK IS BULLSH*T. I think he added more to the quote just to make it seem like he gave me a petty ass discount.Basically i went in there with a $6875 problem that resulted to a$13,900 problem! Did not make any sense at all and his excuse for everything was "thats just the way it healed". I am gladly
planning to go a different dr even if they charge me more because at least I know i will be in good hands. Also the manager (nicole) response to me having ripples were "WE ALL HAVE RIPPLES HERE, I DO, AMY HERE (another co-worker there) DOES TOO.." That was the most ignorant,careless,insincere remark that drove me away. If you want someone to kick you when you are feeling down already make sure you talked to Nicole. And last I would like to share my discovery with everyone on Dr. Kim.I am on a forum that i found a couple ladies on there that went to Dr. kim the same time i did or shortly after.One girl from Tracy, her incision kept bleeding for a few weeks. She went back to Dr. Kim and he tried to close up his incision again but it didnt help and was advise to just put a gauze over it and she has been bleeding through shirts for weeks. I had another girl from SF(and later found out she
was a co-worder of my BF) had hematoma. Dr.Kim had to do an immediate surgery for that. Also after my surgery I also had horrible painful bruising which I found out later that it was also a mild case of hematoma. Dr Kim response was that was the painkiller that they shot into my arm?!I can validate for all these females you can email me with any questions/concern (PINKTHI@YAHOO.COM)..BASICALLY IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING DR KIM, ASK HIM AT THE CONSULTATION "WHAT IS YOUR PERCENTAGE RATE OF YOUR PATIENTS COMING BACK SHORTLY AFTER FOR A COMPLICATION REDO??"Maybe his same answer will be "thats just the way their bodies healed"...This experience was worse than my 1st which I couldn't have thought possible.. =(
