Dr. Kim explains to patients that meeting and exceeding their expectations is among his top priority. For patients considering procedures such as breast augmentation or liposuction a realistic assessment of their desires and the look that they expect following surgery is an imperative part of the consultation process. Patients must be realistic concerning the limitations their body brings to each procedure no matter how hot they think that they are.. For instance, a patient considering breast augmentation who is very thin and does not have enough of her own breast tissue may have the recommendation to use silicone implants versus saline implants, This is because of the likelihood for rippling that could be visible. For liposuction patients they need to be at or near their ideal body weight in order to achieve the best results. Patients who feel that they are unattractive prior to surgery should not choose cosmetic surgery as a means to the most attractive. Plastic surgery is an enhancement based on what you already have and is limited in the results it can deliver.
