Joy Chintanaroad- The Best! – I am a 58 yr. old women who had significant under eye hollows as well as volume loss due to aging. It was recommended by a friend that I see Joy Chintanaroad, a highly skilled Aesthetic Registered Nurse in Dr. Kim's office. She was extremely kind and knowledgeable and assured me that the desired results could be achieved with fillers. I am beyond thrilled with the results!!! I no longer look tired and aged but have a glow about me. My friends cant figure out what I had done but are constantly praising me on how fabulous I look. Thank you Joy, you are truly a blessing!
Dr. David W. Kim for Rhinoplasty – My experience with Dr. Kim has been positive from my very first meeting with him. He listened to what I wanted and explained the procedure (rhinoplasty) very clearly, taking the time to answer my questions and letting me know what I could expect. Dr. Kim places a great deal of importance on a natural result, which was very reassuring to me. On the day of my surgery, I felt completely confident and in very skilled hands with Dr. Kim and the staff of the San Francisco Surgery Center. It has been almost two months since the surgery, and I am extremely pleased with the results so far. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Kim for rhinoplasty or any other facial procedure.
UPDATE: It has been over a year since my surgery and I am even more thrilled with my results now than when I wrote my initial review. The shape of my nose continues to refine itself and looks better and better as time goes by. I could not be happier!
If you are looking for botox.... – I recently saw Dr. Kim for botox. My first time! Dr. Kim went over all of my concerns and all of my options. The doctor was polite, attentive, very supportive and everything you want a doctor to be. I am so excited with my results! I look great but not overdone, which was my biggest concern. I highly recommend Dr. David Kim. I will see him again in the near future. Also, on the plus side my injections were completely pain free!
Perfect Service! – I was recently having my hair done and chatting with my stylist about how I wanted to try someone new for Botox. He immediately replied “you have got to go see Dr. Kim. He is THE best.” Well, I really trust my stylist – he had Dr. Kim’s number and I called right then and there to make an appointment.
The girl Sarah who took my call was extremely accommodating, which made me feel like I was in good hands right away. What I didn’t realize was that I was making an appointment with such an amazing surgeon – when I got home that night I checked out Dr. Kim’s website… so impressive! I was really excited for my treatment and to get to meet Dr. Kim in person.
To say that I was happy with my appointment is a huge understatement. Dr. Kim provided me with a thorough consultation even though I was just coming in for Botox. When I mentioned that I was unhappy with how tired I was looking in the past year, Dr. Kim told me that I was a good candidate for under-eye fillers. Lucky for me, he had just treated his aesthetician Sarah Anne (two Sarahs in one office!), the day before, so I got to see the results. She looked great, as if nothing had been done. I also spoke to her in private and I could tell how genuinely pleased she was with her results and just how happy she was working with Dr. Kim – I decided to go for it!
It’s been a few weeks now and I am thrilled with Dr. Kim and his work. My botox looks perfect – no lines on my forehead and everything looks really natural. I LOVE how my eyes look with the fillers underneath – no more dark circles and I look like I’m in my 20’s again. I was so impressed with the appointment – Dr. Kim had such a calm and warm demeanor that I felt comfortable through the entire procedure. He talked me through everything, and it really didn’t hurt much at all! The office provided me with some arnica to help with swelling, and I got a call the next day to see how I was doing. I had a little bruising (like dots where the needle went in), and as I just work around the corner Sarah Anne had me come in to show me how to use their camouflage make-up to cover up the bruises. The other Sarah was there and she made me up some samples of skincare products to try. I felt like I was hanging out with my sisters- those gals are sweethearts! I had the injections done on Thursday evening and with a little make-up I looked perfect to go out on Saturday night!
I came in a week later for my follow-up appointment with Dr. Kim, and again I was so impressed with the amount of time that he spent speaking with me and making sure that he was satisfied with my results. He then offered me a complimentary microdermabrasion to welcome me to the practice – SWEET! (Be warned, if you meet with Dr. Kim you might develop a crush! ). I am so grateful to have met Dr. Kim and his excellent staff – I HIGHLY recommend him!
Best facial plastic surgeon you will find – I am a nineteen-year-old college student and I had been having breathing problems for about a year before I was diagnosed with a deviated septum. I decided this summer that I wanted to undergo surgery to fix my septum, and after much consideration I also chose to have a rhinoplasty. I spent months researching doctors and scheduling appointments with plastic surgeons all over Marin and San Francisco. After a friend recommended I meet Dr. Kim, I scheduled an appointment and immediately decided that he would be my surgeon.
Dr. Kim explained both procedures thoroughly and with great expertise. It was evident after my very first appointment with him that he is one of the best in his field. I was particularly impressed with his belief in "natural beauty;" he emphasized that his main goal is to "create a nose that one could be born with." He fully understands facial plastic surgery and also comprehends how the changes made in surgery evolve overtime.
The biggest challenge in following through with the septoplasty and rhinoplasty was convincing my dad that a minor cosmetic change to my nose would be worth it. My father did not want me to get a nose job because he believed that every person he has ever seen who has gotten the procedure looks fake. I continuously argued that I trust Dr. Kim more than any other doctor I've met and with his vision for a softer, natural-looking nose, the surgery would turn out great. When my dad joined my mom and I at the appointment the day before surgery, he listened to what Dr. Kim had to say and began to agree with me.
I got the surgery exactly one week ago and I am thrilled with the results. It was absolutely painless and besides minor stuffiness, I was absolutely comfortable in my splint. I didn't even need to take pain medication and I felt fine. I got my splint off yesterday and I am ecstatic with the results. While I am still extremely swollen, my nose looks fabulous. It still looks like the nose I was born with, just a bit straighter and softer-looking. And I have never breathed this well in my entire life... It is absolutely effortless!
The moment of truth came last night when my dad caught his first glance of my new face. The first sentence that came out of his mouth was, "You were right." Thanks to Dr. Kim, following through with the surgery was the best decision I've ever made. I would like to especially thank Sarah Ann in his office for all of her support and help throughout the process. I highly recommend Dr. Kim for anyone considering facial plastic surgeon. He truly is the best!
