Surgeon: Dr. Robert Rey
Breast augmentation, tummy tuck
Kim is 40 years old from Lancaster, CA. She is going to see Dr. Rey about having breast augmentation, and a tummy tuck. Kim has been considering surgery for awhile. She has gone through C-sections, and now wants her tummy back. Kim's husband, Bob, is supportive of the surgery. Kim works as a law enforcement officer in the Los Angeles area and would like to be a detective one day. She says she will need a new bulletproof vest to accommodate her new breasts.
At Dr. Rey's office, Kim has her pre-op consultation visit. She has had three c-sections and the muscles in her belly are destroyed. Dr. Rey will remove skin, and he says the less scars, the better. So he will insert the implants through the cut made during Kim's C-section. Dr. Rey asks Kim what she has in mind as far as breast size. Kim is an A cup now, and wants a full C. She is 5'3, and Dr. Rey says that size will do great for her.
Kim goes to the Summit Surgical Center for her surgery, she is a little nervous, but excited about the result. Dr. Rey makes markings in the areas he will work on and takes pictures. Kim's husband Bob is nervous in the waiting room. Dr. Rey performs a tummy tuck, liposuction of the waist, and breast augmentation. For the breast augmentation surgery, the doctor creates a beautiful pocket, and gives the breasts a tear drop shape. The implants are placed below the muscle, which the doctor says is a huge positive. Dr. Rey says that Kim's three C-sections healed well, so thinks she will also heal well with her tummy tuck. After the surgery is over, Dr. Rey talks to Bob and tells him that Kim's surgery went great. For Bob, if it makes Kim feel better, he's all for it.
Three days after the surgery, Kim is back at Dr. Rey's office to get her bandages off. For Kim, the hardest part of the recovery is not doing things she normally does. The bandages were removed, and Kim looked at her breasts realizing how large they have become. She is very pleased with them. The doctor tells her that bruising can be expected, but the breasts will turn out great.
Back in Lancaster, Kim is trying out some clothes. It has been a couple of months since the surgery. Bob likes the new outfits Kim is trying on, and thinks she looks terrific. He says the surgery magnified everything about her. Kim also has a new bullet proof vest. At first she was concerned about her shooting ability, because now she had to get around bigger breasts. But actually, Kim was shooting better.

Dr. Li and Dr. Fulcher are at good Samaritan for Dr. Li's first ultrasound. Dr. Fulcher is hoping that they find twins. However, Dr. Li wants just one. The ultrasound is done and the baby looks good. For the couple, seeing the baby for first time is an amazing experience. Dr. Li is in tears. She has gone through a lot, from cervical dysplasia, to the building of a new office, and now having a baby, she has cramped so much in a few months.
Later we see Dr. Li, Dr. Fulcher, and their staff walking into their new office for the first time. This is an incredible feeling for everyone. For Dr. Li, she says it is like being a kid in a candy store. She is so happy because she has a place to go to.

Not only will Dr. Diamond be preparing to get married, he says that he looks forward to moving into practice in Beverly Hills and consistently delivering the best results for his patients.
Update on Hayley Rey:
At the beginning of the show, we find Hayley Rey going in for her third appointment concerning a second lump that was found. What's worse is that the second lump is more prominent than the first. Hayley will get the results of her biopsy the following day. The possibility of cancer needs to be ruled out. She says that after her appointment, the first thing she is going to do is go home and play with her kids, because that's what makes her happy. For Hayley, playing with her kids is most important thing. Dr. Rey calls home and talks to Hayley. She tells him that she had a needle biopsy done. Dr. Rey is going through a lot of emotions. This is hard for Dr. Rey. He says that he can't live without Hayley.
The following day, Hayley goes to Dr. Rey's office because she wants him there when the call is made. As she sits on his lap, Dr. Rey calls Hayley's doctor to find out the results of the biopsy. They both find out that everything was okay. This was very good news. Dr. Rey had been tossing and turning all night about this, and now things are okay. But, Dr. Rey realizes he should enjoy the time that he has with Hayley. Unfortunately, as he says that, he gets a call saying that the patient is ready on the table. Dr. Rey leaves his office and goes to perform surgery.
It has been quite a story for the doctors of Dr. 90210, but it is not the end. But we have to wait until next season to find out what's next.
