Dr Yu has a long standing reputation as an outstanding surgeon and caring physician. He is dedicated to healing and beauty. The results are natural, not plastic or over stretched. Along with his lovely staff (Roberta and Jaimie) I've known and trusted Dr. Yu for 11 years There is a reason I keep coming back.

Dr. Yu and his staff were welcoming and made the experience very comforting. He is very conscientious about his work and his patients, taking care to make sure they feel at ease and well informed of the procedures. I was very happy with the outcome thus far. There is still more to do before it is all said and done.

I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Yu and his staff for any cosmetic or other surgical issues. He is an artist as well as a compassionate and highly educated professional. Thank you all for your continued aloha and conscientious approach to your patient's care. After 37 years, I discovered one of my breasts was hard . . . and I was also having several other symptoms (may or may not be related). It seemed this "hardening" occurred suddenly and practically overnight. I had been seeing Dr. Yu for a few years since another corrective procedure he performed and for fillers etc. When I phoned his office, Jamie insisted I come in right away. After thoroughly examining me, and extensive conversation I decided to have implant replacement and capsulectomy surgery as soon as possible. Dr. Yu made room for me on the very next surgical date (I went in on Friday and asked if I could have the surgery on Monday). He was amazing. He found much more than he anticipated, dealt with it, and thus far, I have healed beautifully, and look great! I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Yu and his staff for any cosmetic or other surgical issues. He is an artist as well as a compassionate and highly educated professional. Thank you Jamie, Roberta and Dr. Yu for your continued aloha and conscientious approach to your patient's care.

Dr. Yu met with me several times to answer questions and discuss several options regarding my dissatisfaction with my implants. While he did not agree that the silicone likely caused my increase in physical illness, he agreed that if I felt at all concerned about that possibility, the best thing to do would be to remove them. I am 2 days post surgery so cannot speak to the outcome as of yet. Update: 6 weeks post op. I am very happy I had explant, however I had to ask specifically for capsulectomy and at one month followup questioned Dr Yu further only to find out he did not remove 5% of capsules because they were so thin and adhered to rib cage. This was a medical judgement call I realize, yet I am disappointed as I wanted anything with any possible toxicity removed. Also disappointed that I was not told this after surgery. He and his staff have been kind and helpful in other ways, and I appreciate his assistant Jamie so much. They were not dismissive of me or my concerns at followup I'm happy to say.

I heard about Dr. Yu from word of mouth. I can count on Jamie and Roberta in the front office to give me the best consideration as a patient. It's fascinating to understand the technology advances since 2007 available now to remedy my situation. After six years of post surgery consideration, I'm ready to accrue my down payment for the procedure. Rate is always a consideration; however, I look at plastic surgery as a return on investment.

Dr. Yu did a wonderful job and is a very caring, competent surgeon--my chin looks natural and very nice! The surgery has lasted for many years.

I was familiar with Dr. Yu and his staff from regular Botox treatments. (He never pressed me to do more!) My face lift consult with him convinced me of his knowledge and experience. From that point on, he has had my trust and confidence. After my consult with Dr. Yu, I realized that it's all about having a doctor you can trust with your life, health and look. Initially, I was inclined to hunt for a bargain (maybe in Thailand), but both I and my friend (who had a consult at the same time) left his office saying to each other that we would not consider anyone but Dr. Yu. He is a perfectionist with vast experience, continuous refinement of procedures, and passion for his work. I felt comfortable and confident in his hands. I wanted a face lift because losing 50 lbs. 5 years ago left me with a thin, sagging-skin face; the face lift was my reward. In my consult, I learned that the loss of fat from the face (temples, cheeks, lips) was a major contributor to an "older" look. Dr. Yu's state-of-the-art fat stem cell transplants address that issue, and I'm extremely pleased with that aspect of the surgery in conjunction with the more standard procedures. The office staff, surgical team, and facilities are excellent. I felt pampered. I have no regrets about the surgery and would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Yu.

I chose this provider through previous experiences from his patients. I saw his work and was pleased with it. Thanks to Dr. Leonard Yu, he has helped me achieve my personal goal of looking the best that I can. He did an excellent job and I couldn't have asked for more. Everything turned out wonderful. His staff also did an excellent job in helping through out the process and was very knowledgeable. Dr. Yu was able to answer every question I had with confidence and I had complete confidence in him to do this procedure.

He has a sterling reputation and upon the recommendation of my daughter and further acquaintances my ultimate decision was easily made. I was fortunate to have a doctor who took the time to alleviate my trepidation at having such a procedure. He gave me back my self confidence & to look in the mirror I can see he turned back the hands of time. I am completely satisfied with the results & I would happily have Dr. Yu again for any further procedures.
