Dr. Lim is the 3rd and final doctor I have seen for reconstructed breasts. He has revised and improved upon the work of other doctors with dignity and class. After a long journey with breast cancer I can say: "Yes. You can have nicely reconstructed breasts. But you have to really want them". This means a willingness to accept that it is a process that might take more than a couple of surgeries. And a process that may require meeting more than one plastic surgeon. Thank you, Dr. Lim.

Dr. Lim is a kind and very understanding man. He removed what is called "dog ears" from underneath my armpits, and slightly down both sides of the trunk of my body. This caused great discomfort after the bi-lateral masectomy, chemotherapy, radiation, and swelling had decreased significantly. He listened, and I felt extremely comfortable with his recommendations. He performed the surgery and removed those areas of left-over fat, and as the healing took place the discomfort also decreased.

This doctor did not listen to my request. He specializes in a "natural", very droopy reconstructed breast look, so it doesn't matter what you want. Extremely disappointed with results after my double mastectomy and reconstruction

He is absolutely wonderful. I am 33 yrs old and a mother to three little people. I underwent a bilateral mastectomy with immediate reconstruction with Dr. Lim. I have also had two subsequent surgeries with him. He is very caring and concerned with my healing process. He is very straight forward and gets to the point. He did come across as withdrawn at first, but I've learned better. His staff are amazing! He does a FANTASTIC job! I am very grateful I chose him to help me through this experience
