Dr. David W. Kim in San Francisco is an internationally acclaimed Facial Plastic Surgeon who uses advanced techniques and procedures that are the safest and most successful.


Practice Philosophy

The core mission of Dr. Kim’s practice is to provide the highest quality level of care for all of our patients. We strive to maintain this quality in all aspects of each patient’s experience — from the initial inquiry, the consultation, treatment and follow-up.

Clear Communication
A critical component of providing high quality care is clear communication with our patients. We pride ourselves in thoroughly informing patients of every aspect of proposed treatments. We feel that setting clear and honest expectations is vital to the satisfaction of our clients. We will therefore never over-promise and instead try to provide an accurate and realistic assessment of projected improvements from our services. Each patient’s needs are approached with respect, discretion, and honesty.

Our staff is committed to helping patients look their best through safe and effective treatments. The ultimate goal is for our patients to achieve improvements so that they are happier and feel better about themselves. Because this is the most important objective, we will not recommend procedures to any individual for whom we feel we cannot reach this goal. To Dr. Kim and his staff, the practice is more than just surgery and treatments — it is about relationships which enrich the lives of both provider and patient alike.
