Dr. is so patient and professional. He wants to help you find your best self and he listens to your needs time and time again, until you develop a plan that feels right overall. His assistant is charming and compassionate. It is a very private environment and he is to be trusted to the fullest extent of a doctor/ patient trusting relationship.

The explant surgery I had last month with Dr. Yuan, I was told by other surgeons would be difficult and possibly result in a deformity. I had spoken with several surgeons over the course of years. For years I put off surgery because I was told I could expect deformities such as dents, puckering, and nipple inversion, and that I would need two or more surgeries. Knowing how nervous I was,...

Dr. Yuan was great. Before the surgery, he gave me all the information I needed to know and what to expect. The surgery itself was quick and efficient as well. He was also very courteous on scheduling appoints.

Dr. Yuan is a brilliant surgeon. His technical work is superb which he combines with a remarkable aesthetic sense. His work is subtle, natural, and very pleasing. His manner is thorough, clear, and kind. He takes as much time as you need to understand the procedure involved. I have had two major surgeries with Dr. Yuan and both outcomes were better than I expected or even hoped.

I was referred to Dr. Robin Yuan many years ago by someone who had shopped plastic surgeons, learned that Dr. Yuan was the best, and was extremely happy with his work. Dr. Robin Yuan has now been my trusted plastic surgeon for many years, and I cannot tell you how many people have complimented me on how young I look for my age. Years ago he did a face lift, a mid face lift, eye work, laser...

A friend of a friend recommended Dr. Robin Yuan. I called to make and appointment and was pleasantly surprised when he called right back.At my first consultation he explained how he approaches plastic surgery and which what I was expecting & looking for with the procedure. The time he spent mae be feel very comfortable going forward. It took 4 or 5 visits (including bringing in photos from each decade of my life) to feel more confident in what I wanted & what Dr. Yuan could achieve. Dr. Yuan never pushed or promised a rose garden. Whenever I had a question or concern I would email him & he would reply almost immediately. So when I finally picked a surgery date, I felt very secure in his hands. The surgery center, the after care center were terrific. I am now 8 weeks out and I look & feel great. I am happy to say he accomplished all our goals & more!
5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction
I was very happy with my outcome. I wanted a reduction and lift and Dr. Yuan did exactly what I asked for. The pain was a little more than anticipated, but overall I think it was definitely worth it. I am now much more proportionate and it is much easier for me to shop, work out, and I have less back pain.

I was referred by a relative. There are so many plastic surgeons out there that a person like me looking for plastic surgery could be lost while researching all the websites. Thankfully Dr. Yuan was highly recommended and referred with two Harvard degrees to top, too. When I had my first consultation with Dr. Yuan, I had many questions and anxieties, but Dr. Yuan answered all my questions. I began to feel more comfortable about the surgery. I especially appreciate the consistent consultations and follow-ups I have received from Dr. Yuan wanting to know how I was doing. This added a special touch knowing that I am in good hands with a surgeon who genuinely cares about his patients before, during, and after the surgery. Dr. Yuan is a very kind, caring doctor and a model for his profession. Dr. Yuan listens patiently to discover what I want. I feel very comfortable talking with Dr. Yuan. It is a partnership trying to come up with the best surgical plan for me. The surgery went smoothly. A big part of the process is getting to the comfort level with my doctor and the surgery. As a result, the surgery was a big success for me. I am very happy with the surgical outcome. I had very little pain after the surgery, and I was back on my feet the next day walking and exercising. Thank you very much, Dr. Yuan, for the amazing surgery you did for me. I am very happy with my new look. I look and feel twenty years younger which gives me more confidence to do things. It is definitely the best decision I have made to have the surgery with Dr. Yuan. I wish that I had done the surgery with Dr. Yuan much earlier so I could enjoy the amazing results sooner. I am so happy with all that Dr. Yuan has done for me. I highly recommend Dr. Yuan to anyone who wants plastic surgery because he is the best!!!
