I have been to this office for many procedures and they are honest, fairly priced, and care about recommending the right procedure for the desired results.

5 out of 5 stars Mini Lift

Treated Self to Mini-Facelift for 60th Birthday — More Pleased Each Day! Encinitas, CA

I appreciated the surgeon's approachable manner and the professionalism and kindness of all staff, both at pre-op visits, surgery day, follow-up visits and on phone calls after I left the area. I especially appreciated the advice to wait on fat transfers, as they let me know that in-person followup and gradual adjustments were important for best results.

1 out of 5 stars Mini Lift

Dr Yco's Mini Face Lift Not Worth It! Encinitas, CA

I thought I made a great choice. He had all the qualifications but unfortunately for me I have no results on mini lift. Dr.Yco even suggested he didn't even charge for my liposuction under my chin. there is no difference what's so ever. Only a couple of staff members are friendly. I feel money was the only thing these people are after not a good outcome. After they take your $$$$ they ignore your emails.

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Best Eyelid Surgeon - Encinitas, CA

Dr. Mario Yco makes you feel so at ease. He has this calmness about him and reassurance that he'll take care of you no matter what. I knew that he did great work because of all my friends who rave about him and have great result. The only regret I have is that I waited so long. When I'm ready to do a face lift I will definitely go back to him.
