5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation - Sacramento, CA

Very experienced, surgery went really good. He personally called to check and see how I was doing. Answered all my questions and listened to what I wanted.

Dr. Yamahata is a Skilled, Kind, Considerate Surgeon -Sacramento, CA

I went to Doctor Yamahata after finding out I had a ruptured implant. I could only afford to have that side fixed and not only was he willing to fix the side that had ruptured, but when i developed a complication, he took quick action and monitored it throroughly. He even personally called me to make sure I was okay. He matched up the ruptured side perfectly to the other side. I am very pleased with the results. Not only is Dr. Yamahata a skilled and great surgeon but he is a very pleasant person. I am going back to see Dr. Yamahata, when I'm ready to have my eyes done.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Beautiful Tummy Tuck!!! - Sacramento, CA

Dr. Yamahata's experience, skill and results in plastic surgery is beyond reproach. Although he is complete in his explanations of surgery, healing and results, he is not one to chit-chat off the cuff. He is to the point and direct which I greatly appreciated. I hope my before and after pictures will be used on his website...they are the perfect example of his surgical abilities.

49 Year Old with 3 Children. Sacramento, CA

I absolutely love my results. I am so glad that I chose The Plastic Surgery Center for my procedure. I absolutely love Dr. Wayne Yamahata and his entire staff. Very helpful, friendly and the surgery staff helped put my fears aside. I would strongly recommend and will return if I decide to have any more procedures in the future!

Going in for a TT in 5 Hours!! (The Site Wouldn't Let Me Choose Today As my Surgery Date) - Sacramento, CA

I'm really pleased with Dr. Yamahata. He has personally called/emailed me whenever I had any questions or concerns. That alone speaks volumes of his character. Five months post op, and I'm very happy with my results. I'm still experiencing some normal swelling, but I love the new shape Dr. Yamahata has sculpted for me. My clothes look better on me and the loose skin from having 2 kids is finally gone! Thank you Dr. Yamahata!

June 29th / Extended TT -Sacramento, CA

I found Dr Yamahata by website because I Was pleased with several reviews I read on his TT performance of female body types same as my own. But over the period of going through my process, I felt like I was with a man who cared about me and my outcome but also wanted me to be realistic and was willing to share how i can get to where I want to be, realistically But not at the expense of my health. I appreciated that so much. When we met to do the marking, we had a moment for questions and answers which at this point I had no more questions because he had already did a pretty good job at explaining to me in details what to expect but he was so patient and kind. I felt like it was a very fatherly and comforting moment right before going under for surgery that really put me at ease.

Trusted my Doctor and So Happy I Did - Sacramento, CA

Dr. Yamahata is not a man of many words, but he is a fantastic, honest, and caring doctor. An artist. He listened to what I wanted, it's like he read my mind. I left the size up to him and asked asked him to take in consideration my petite small frame. He immediately agreed that the "wrong size" will make me look heavier than I am. He assured me I will look perportionate, and natural. His...

Best Doctor Ever!!!!!!!!! - Sacramento, CA

Dr. Yahamata is honest, kind and a TRUE perfectionist, my neck and lower face look 10 years younger. I'll be seeing Dr Yahamata in a few more years for eye lift. If your at the faint of heart this procedure is not for you. The tight feeling in the face and neck is expected, for me, it lasted seven months and was gone. There are no signs of stitch marks :))

Chose Dr. After Just One Visit... and I'm Extremely Happy I Did - Sacramento, CA

Kind, compassionate bedside manner. He listened to what I wanted to see for results of the surgery and he called me at home to check on me personally after surgery. My results are just as I hoped for.
