Dr. Hahm is amazing. After the realization that both my breasts would be removed due to infiltrating ductal carcinoma, Dr. Hahm was there with a smile and positive attitude. He ensured me he could and would help me move past the fact I would be losing my breasts by reconstructing new ones for me. He nailed it!. His post surgical care was wonderful. He checked on me everyday, even on the weekend. I feel that even if your a person that could never afford to have improvements made "just because", he would make feel like you are that person. He is dedicated to his art, and to making you feel positive about yourself no matter the circumstance that first brought you to his door.

Wow--- Amazing is the only word I can describe what he has done for me. I am a 52 yr old female after multiple births and weight loss. I was tired of looking in the mirror disappointed and so tired of being covered up on the beach. I decided it was time to take my life back. He did an amazing job, my only regret is not doing it sooner. I am a Registered Nurse and was apprehensive to say the least. I did my homework and talked with fellow Nurses he was highly recommended. So I decided it was time. I had a tummy tuck, breast augmentation with lift. My figure has not looked this good since I was 20. He did what is called an internal breast lift I was not even aware there was such a procedure.. no visible scars.!!! what else can I say--- AMAZING-- go in for a consult and ask to see my before and after pictures. you will be just as amazed. Thank you Dr Hahm for giving me back my confidence.

About Me

Face Value

This 54-year-old patient underwent a facelift, upper and lower blepharoplasty, chin augmentation and endoscopic browlift to refine her appearance. Botox and an at-home skin-care regimen, consisting of Obagi® and NEOCUTIS products, rounded out her treatment plan to further enhance youth. 

Perky Positioning

Leaving the breasts completely scarless with no telltale signs of surgery, Dr. Hahm performed endoscopic breast augmentation through a tiny, one-inch incision in this 22-year-old’s belly button. “I am very pleased with the results. They are very natural looking,” says Dr. Hahm. 

A Fresh Outlook

In an upscale office with a warm Southern coastal ambience, Dr. Hahm receives prospective patients and answers all of their questions during an in-depth consultation. Patient comfort is provided by making sure my entire staff is caring, friendly and attentive, from the first consultation through surgery and all post-surgery visits. The engaging atmosphere makes patients feel confident and secure with the procedure they have chosen and with Dr. Hahm. I take great pleasure and pride in making sure every patient has a welcoming and positive experience. I feel honored to be a part of their transformation. Dr. Hahm also believes in being completely honest with patients. For example, while he is excited about the future of cosmetic surgery, he also believes there is never a quick fix. I give my patients honest answers and real results. They are very natural looking, says Dr. Hahm.
