It is important that my patients know that any medical decision that has been planned is done together as a team. My job is to explain to each and every one of my patients the problems and explain all of the options that are available and come to a conclusion together about how we can move forward to achieve our goal together.
I have a special interest in breast reconstruction, breast reduction, and upper facial rejuvenation.

Roles and Responsibilities

What My Patients Say

Dr. Rhim is amazing! He is extremely easy to talk to, very informative, and just a wonderful surgeon. He changed my life in so many ways. I will never be able to thank him enough. I am happy and joyful, where I used to just plod through the day. He's just such a great guy! - MT

Dr. Rhim is an outstanding plastic surgeon. He listens, takes time with, and truly cares about his patients. Having breast cancer is a very scary ordeal but having Dr. Rhim as my plastic surgeon, I was able to feel confident in my care and know that he had my best interests at heart. - KB

Dr. Rhim is an incredible doctor. He is compassionate and knowledgeable. He immediately put me at ease at my first appointment after my breast cancer diagnosis. Dr. Rhim explained the surgery in a way that I could understand and answered every question I threw at him. - KC

Excellent; this was my first surgery and I was scared. Dr. Rhim is a wonderful doctor and more than that he is a great human being. He helped me out with all concerns I have, and not even that, he made me more confident about how the surgery will be done. And about pain and all the side effects he made me prepared about. I love his service, I am thankful to Kaiser Permanente that they have excellent doctor like Dr. Rhim in this department. He knows what he is doing and he takes care of his patients like human beings. Thank you Dr. Rhim, I am so happy about surgery that had been done last week. - NK

To say Dr. Rhim is a good plastic surgeon is an understatement. He is the BEST. He is the most skillful and experienced doctor I have ever met. He is extremely honest, helpful, patient, and sets realistic expectations. He truly cares and is devoted to every one of his patients. He goes above and beyond to accommodate any requests, answer your questions, and call just to check up on you post-op. I wish Dr. Rhim was also my primary care physician at Kaiser Permanente. He has provided a wonderful experience since my consultation all the way to follow-up post-op visits. He is a doctor that you can trust and you will be completely satisfied with your results and experience. - ME

I'm still in the pre-op stages for my breast reduction surgery but would like to commend Dr. Rhim on his patience as I contact him often with questions about the upcoming procedure. He does an excellent job of addressing my concerns quickly and efficiently. - KA

I'm grateful for the support and professionalism exhibited by Dr. Rhim and his staff during my recent breast reduction surgery. There's a vulnerability associated with any major surgery but a breast reduction is closely aligned with body image and there's always the fear that you won't like the end result. I didn't have that fear with Dr. Rhim. From the day I left his office after my initial consultation to the day I had my final post-op appointment, I consistently felt secure knowing I was in the care of Dr. Rhim and his team. He possesses a confidence and calm that always puts me at ease whether it was while I had read a response to one of my questions in the patient portal or chatting with him before my procedure when my nerves were at an all-time high from fear of anesthesia. I felt safe and well taken care of. Behind every wonderful doctor is a great team helping orchestrate the day-to-day operations. Dr. Rhim's team was instrumental in helping me find ways to lower my blood pressure when I would rush to an appointment, stressed [out] by traffic and the fear of being late; or the nurses who kept me entertained on the day of surgery when I mentioned my fear of needles. Amazing teamwork in action at every turn. By writing this, I feel like I'm saying farewell to family. I will forever be indebted to Dr. Rhim for performing the surgery that helped put me back on the path to a positive body image. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. - KA

Dr. Rhim and his team did an excellent job for my breast surgery. I am very happy. - SR   

Following a fall, I developed a large hematoma on the back of my hand .... I was sent to Dr. Rhim. Within minutes he decided that surgery was required and he performed it two days later. I cannot fully express my appreciation to Dr. Rhim as his skill and follow-up care were exceptional. After viewing the wound post surgery, I would never have believed how completely the wound has closed and healed. I will forever be thankful for his expertise and care. - RB
