I would never recommend Dr. Kjar. I went to see him for a breast reduction. Prior to surgery I told Dr. Kjar I wanted to be a B cup. I had surgery, woke up, went home, and began healing. It has been eight months and my boobs are still a D. Dr. Kjar failed to tell me this was even a possibility. Further, in our post-op appointments he told me I would never be "stick thin" and it didn't make sense for me to have small breasts anyway. He does not know how to talk to women.

I have had plastic surgeries before, in Washington State. Doctor Kjar is as kind and professional as any doctor I had for my post cancer surgery. He is a very patient and thoughtful man. WOW! If you want or NEED a procedure done I certainly would have him do it! I am completely confident and happy to have met him and his lovely staff!

If you are out of state beware!!!!I went 4 months ago to get my implants removed because they were making me DEATHLY ill! I spoke with his secretary MULTIPLE times to discuss the removal of the implants & the scar tissue that forms around them & the cost. I asked specifically if he had done this or could I was told he is a very skilled surgeon and could do it. I got there the price was over double the quote and I woke up with half the scar tissue still in. He destroyed my implants as well.
