Doctor Michael Yaremchuk knows what needs to be done! His education and talents are great and the results show! Don’t expect to see the final result a few days or a even week after, it takes time couple - few weeks is a realistic time. Dr. Michael Yaremchuk is a great Doctor, he presents great manners and is high in professionalism. If you are considering cosmetics Dr Y is located in the Boston Area I would give his office and staff a call. They’ll take care of you

I came in for a consultation looking for a facelift. I asked Dr Yaremchuk what his wish lift would be for me. He suggested a chin implant as well. I never would have considered both but couldn’t be happier that I did both. I look like me only better!! I love my results and couldn’t be happier.

Let this be a warning: Dr Yaremchuk left half my face partially paralyzed after getting infraorbital implants. I can no longer smile like I used to and have trouble closing my eyes. It has now been over a year and have seen little if any improvement past the first three months. (He also left a screw behind under my eye after removal of the implants).

World class surgeon!! I flew all the way from Australia to see Dr Yaremchuk requesting a full facial transformation Cheek/Chin/Jaw/Rhinoplasty and Midface Lift. I am now 6 months post op and must say the results are truly sensational. A full facial transformation is no easy task but Dr Yaremchuk went above and beyond and succeeded with flying colors. He truly is a master of his craft and one of the best plastic surgeons in the world! I look in the mirror now and I like what I see. Thank you for everything you have done for me Dr Y!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr Yaremchuk and his staff!! After breaking my nose for a second time this past winter and recently discovering that at the age of 53 that I now had my grandmothers earlobes, I decided I wanted to make a change. I spent a lot of time researching plastic surgeons. Upon meeting Dr Y I was immediately put at ease. I found him to be very knowledgeable , soft spoken and sincere. He simple asked what it was that I did not like about my nose. He then went over what he could do for me. I did consult a couple of other surgeons but none had the credentials or stellar reviews that Dr Yaremchuk has. When it came time for the surgery I decided to let Dr Y give me the nose that he thought would best fit my facial structure.I put my trust in his very capable hands. I am beyond thrilled with the outcome. My earlobes have been reduced to their original size and now my nose is very similar to that of my beautiful daughter. Thank you Dr Yaremchuk so very much!

I came to Dr. Yaremchuk with facial deformities that were the result of poorly performed jaw surgery by another surgeon. It was my good fortune that he is a renowned expert in the area of masseter muscle re-insertion and chin ptosis/lip incompetence. He repositioned my bunched up masseters and stitched them in their proper places, and resuspended my mentalis muscles. He tied his skillful artwork together with a very natural-looking necklift and lower facelift. I am delighted with the results

I am a nurse worked in Boston for 20 years, did the appropriate research, I am one year after a facelift and lower eyelid surgery, I am sorry to report this was the worst decision of my life. My face is permanently disfigured with terrible scars and more wrinkles than I had before the facelift. ............................................................................................................................................................................................................

I did many procedures at a time wanting a large "overhaul" of my face: rhinoplasty, customized jaw/cheek/chin implants and cheek fat removal. The recovery was painful from so many however I had good care. The results are INCREDIBLE. I'm extremely happy with this surgeon and the care he gave me. He was also the only surgeon who was able to do it when other surgeons insisted that fat grafting or bone cutting was necessary--Yaremchuk was able to do it with customized implants.

Horrible surgery: facelift is unequal and incomplete, my face is perm scarred and now people star at me asking if I have been in a car accident. I am five months post surgery.

I had custom facial implants with another surgeon and they just didn't come out right. After a revision and we still were not "on the same page" I got frustrated and saw Dr. Y. Everything came out beautifully and I wish I had just seen him in the first place and avoided this entire fiasco.

Botched facelift botched blepharoplasty left me disfigured looking worse than before the facelift massive dark scars on my face. Does not listen to the patient, forget everything that was previously discussed, incomplete procedures which I found out after the surgery. No wonder he offers a cost reduction if you pay in green cash, I should've checked with the IRS before having him do surgery on my face. There's no going back now he's ruined me
