5 out of 5 stars Revision Rhinoplasty

I have a pretty nose that is functional too! All thanks to Donald B. Yoo.

Procedure: I had a revision rhinoplasty and septoplasty done by Donald B. Yoo. You are equipped with your medications, ointments, q-tips, and cleaning products before your surgery. Day of surgery went very smoothly and his team is superb! I felt very comfortable from prep all the way to wakening up from anesthesia. The day after surgery was easy peasy with no discomfort at all. My third day...

Struggling with Vanity but Made Peace with Botox for Bruxism - Beverly Hills, CA

I've been suffering from Bruxism most of my life, it is anxiety driven. I didn't know how severe it was until the dentist told me I had chipped teeth and the the roots of my teeth shrunk considerably from excessive impact. I tried NAC, Melatonin, went on antidepressants for six months (terrible and probably changed my brain!) and have been wearing a mouth guard for 7 years. Bruxism effects my...

Dr. Yoo is an Amazing Surgeon!

Before even considering rhinoplasty, I have been bothered by my eye bags for a long time. I visited a local plastic surgeon, and he told me at my age (21), he can’t do anything about it because I was too young. After that, I started searching on Realself, because I wanted a consultation with someone in Beverly Hills, it is kind of a brand name to me and I didn’t want to be upset anymore. Dr....

Can't take my eyes off of my new nose.

My friend had a nose job last summer and her nose was literally transformed. I seriously couldn't stop looking at her because 1. She became so much prettier 2. I was amazed at how a rhinoplasty can change the whole face so dramatically. I always thought we had a similar nose shape so I had to ask who did her nose and that's how I found Dr. Yoo. I still went to other surgeons for consultations...
