Very satisfied patient
Dr. Kenneth Yu was such a pleasure to work with. He was knowledgeable, professional, and thorough. He & his staff are excellent at what they do. If anyone is considering plastic surgery, visit Dr. Yu for a consultation. You’ll see firsthand that he’s a doctor you can trust. I’m two weeks out from my procedure, and loving my results.

When I was in the Air Force, I had heard that Dr. Yu had exceptional surgical skills and stellar credentials- double Board Certified in Head and Neck Surgery and Facial Plastic Surgery- Wow! That’s why I chose Dr. Yu to evaluate my facial concerns for improvement. Morgan and Macy are awesome, professional, punctual and have always made me feel welcome and comfortable. Dr. Yu proposed a conservative surgical option to make me look and feel better and I am thrilled with the results! Pre-op it was so obvious that Dr Yu has spent years performing surgeries- he was so organized and reassuring. Post op I had minimal pain and much less swelling and bruising than I expected. Most of the incisions were hidden in the hair lines for no visible scarring. At 2 weeks postsurgical I could resume most normal activities. The best thing is that I still look like myself, but better and more refreshed. Thanks Dr Yu and your amazing staff for making me feel and look like a VIP!!!

My appointment with Dr. Yu was fantastic! From the moment I walked into the beautifully decorated office, the experience exceeded all of my expectations. The office staff were very courteous, professional, and prompt. I was seen for my appointment right on my scheduled time. Dr. Yu took the time to attentively address my concerns. He clearly explained the pros and cons of specific treatments and answered all of my questions. This was a very positive experience for me and I am very pleased with my results. I will recommend Dr. Yu to all of my friends and family for their plastic surgery needs, he is an exceptional physician!

My face looks amazing! You are in excellent hands when you choose Dr. Yu.

He’s very professional and does not try to up sell or push other procedures. He answers questions fully and very good with injections. If you are looking for a more natural, less obvious facial work, he is your guy. Very glad I found him

Dr Yu did my Rhinoplasty last week, and I could not possibly be more pleased! Dr Yu and his staff are incredibly professional, but personal and genuinely kind and loving- they give such individualized care and attention, that you feel as if you are their only patient! The facility where he does his surgeries was on-time, very comfortable, sweet and caring staff, and they really care about how you're feeling and your comfort levels before and after surgery. For decades I was too afraid to let anyone operate on me, especially on my face, and was very apprehensive about the pain/discomfort after the surgery, but Dr Yu is so skilled that I was comfortable the entire time, even when removing stitches! I couldn't believe how comfortable and relaxed I was, and how easy he made it for me! Dr. Yu is so talented, so amazing, my results are better than I had even hoped for! The entire experience was one like I have NEVER had with any kind of doctor/doctor's office!

From the initial appointment I knew this doctor was the right doctor for my lip lift surgery. Great vibes and real positive office atmosphere with no pressure.
