5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift
First off, I live in Seattle, WA. I spent quite a while looking at surgeons in my own area to perform a without much luck. I decided to start looking out of state. After hours and days of research I came across some reviews of Dr. Yates. I was amazed at how high his ratings were. I searched and searched the internet for a bad review (after all EVERY other surgeon I had found had at least a few) and couldn't find ONE. His website was far superior to anyone elses' and from the details given I knew he wanted all his patients to be informed before they made their choice. I was impressed to say the least. When I filled out a contact form online (VERY late on a Saturday night) I was shocked and thrilled to see he had personally answered me back by early Sunday morning. Everything about his approach with me made me KNOW he was the one before I had even met him. From the second I stepped into his office I was very nicely greeted and asked to have a seat in the waiting room (which is gorgeous). His nurses and staff were so incredibly caring and helped me feel less self-conscious. The second he walked through the door I felt complete confidence. He was so genuine and caring and didn't give me BS lines that other surgeons had. He was honest but positive about the surgery and my results and spent a LONG time with me answering the many questions I had. When it came time for my surgery he made sure I was feeling ok that I was in good hands and that I would be very pleased with my results. I can honestly say for my very first surgery, I wasn't nervous in the slightest (even with my phobia of needles). He is beyond the BEST and I can't thank him enough for making me feel the confidence I always wanted to feel. I can honestly say I cried for the first time out of happiness in my life.
I couldn't have had a better experience with plastic surgery. I love this doctor. He's nice, polite, friendly, and comfortable to be around. He knows what he's talking about and he did a FANTASTIC job! I love my new cup size! I don't look unproportional, nor do I wish I would've gone bigger like alot of women I've talked to. He did such a great job. No complications, no worries, he's just a GREAT doctor. I have already recommended 3 of my friends to him. If you're on the fence about getting a surgery done, DON'T BE! Let this wonderful man do his magic! I wake up every day thanking God that Dr. Y is alive and able to perform miracles!

Plastic Surgery was a big step for me. I recognized I wanted to go to a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon but how would I choose the right person. When I began my search, I was working outside of the USA. I emailed inquiries to many physicians throughout the USA and received mostly automated responses of "Please call our office at ..." That was until I discovered Dr. Y. He and his office staff responded immediately to my emails, answered all of my questions, set up appointment times, and kept in contact with me until I arrived for my appointment. It was simply amazing. He is personable and realistic in his approach. I never felt rushed during appointments. Preoperatively, we choose the appropriate size for my breast implants. He offered his expert advice but also took into consideration my thoughts. He patiently waited in the room until all of my questions/concerns were addressed. With each appointment, his patient approach never changed and I considered myself very fortunate to have discovered this talented professional. Four weeks from my surgical date, my breasts look natural and beautiful. Twenty four hours following the surgery, I used the prescription analgesics he prescribed to control the pain but after the first day, I was easily able to control the pain with Ibuprofen. My pencil thin scar is approximately 2 cm in length and even at this point it is barely noticeable. Without hesitation, I recommend Dr. Y and his wonderful office staff for all of your plastic surgery needs. I would go to no other and will return to his office for all of my future plastic surgical procedures.
5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
I had several prior consultations, and each one I was told I would have what I wanted. During my consultation with my Dr., he explained what he could do, and what logically my body could do. It was so refreshing to be told the truth, and not what I wanted to hear. However, what my Dr was able to do, went beyond anything I had ever dreamed could be done. Not only is he an artist, but he is also a perfectionist. It's the perfect combination for a plastic surgeon. My recovery was better (and quicker) than I expected. Not only is the Dr amazing, but his staff is just as exceptional. I couldn't have asked for a better experience, recovery, and results of these surgeries and I know it was because of who my plastic surgeon was.

Had breast implants 10 years ago by another dr and had 2 deflations within 3 years. That Dr told me my only option was to have silicone implants placed. Dr. Yates removed those and replaced with saline and I have had 4 years without a problem! My experience was hands down 10,000 times better at his office than that of my first 3 surgeries. He was so much more caring, informative and patient than my first Dr. His office is always kind and caring and respectful.

It's been almost 4 weeks since my tummy tuck by Dr. Y. I am so happy with my results. I look so much better - it was worth EVERY penny! I will recommend him to everyone I meet. I was reluctant to have anyone inspect my stomach after pregnancies and a C-section. I walked into his office feeling self conscious and embarassed. I walked out of the consultation feeling hopeful and excited for the surgery. Dr. Y recommended additional treatment (lipo) and I'm so glad I did it all at once. Seriously - go for it!
