5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

A true professional; I wouldn't go to anyone else!

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2016 and found Dr Yoo through my oncology office. He did my breast reconstruction (after double mastectomy) and I couldn't be happier with the results. Breast recon is quite a process so the fact that he was able to make my 100% artificial breasts look REAL is quite a testament to his skill level. As a matter of fact, a fellow cancer survivor I met through...

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Nose job & Breast Augmentation

I had a rhinoplasty and breast augmentation with Dr. Yoo several years ago. It was the BEST decision I ever made. The results are fabulous!!! He was a fantastic doctor and took the extra time and effort to make sure things went right every step of the way. HE REALLY CARES ABOUT HIS PATIENTS!!! I couldn't be happier and I am so thankful to have been his patient.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

I had an amazing experience!

Dr. Yoo was amazing! He did a tummy tuck for me and I love my results! He is so caring and compassionate and really took the time to explain the procedure and answer my questions, never making me feel rushed. He is a true perfectionist and an artist! His work is perfection! He really takes the time for the best result possible. Prior to the surgery, I was so concerned that the scar would...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Amazing, caring, honest doctor with exceptional skills

Oh where to start!!! I've first learned about Dr Yoo through a friend who had breast reconstruction by him. When I told her I was interested in doing breast augmentation she said she would not trust any other Plastic surgeon besides Dr Yoo. Long story short she was absolutely right!!! He is the best doctor in town with great staff and awesome results to prove it!!! My breast looks so soft,...

5 out of 5 stars Ear Lobe Surgery

Sincerely 1 of a Kind in Every Way. Outstanding Results!

One of the hardest decisions when it comes to a Plastic Surgeon is not only someone with a great reputation, amazing portfolio of work, but someone that makes you feel very comfortable and that you can trust. I looked for months and went through SEVERAL consultations before meeting with Dr. Michael Yoo. After the initial consultation and the pre-op appointment I knew he would be the right Dr....

5 out of 5 stars Labiaplasty

Great Labiaplasty Experience With Dr Yoo in Irvine, CA

Dr Yoo has a great bedside manner, explained the procedure well, and answered all my questions. He took his time to reassure me when I had concerns and followed up to ensure I was happy. Don't let his boyish good looks to fool you - he is a very experienced and knowledgeable surgeon.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

37-yr Old Cancer Patient. DD to Small C - Newport Beach, CA

Dr Yoo was very open and gracious when handling all the questions me & my family had. He made us feel at ease every step of the way. He made sure on day of surgery I was feeling good not to pysically but mentally. Just had finished 4mos of chemo and I was driven to beat this cancer. I asked him to be honest and he was direct when needed with me because inside scared but outside smiling. I have recommended him to other women in support group.

18 and a 44H - Akron, OH

So far, Dr. Yoo has been great! Hes clearly explained everything to me and made all my appointments really easy and relaxed.
