5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Expert, Empathic, Compassioante, Simply the Best... - Vancouver, BC

I was petrified by anxiety since the first time I went through this process with a different surgeon, Dr. Carr, in 2009. That was one of the works experiences of my life and my families. Not only my breathing did not improve, but I was bruised from forehead all the way down to my neck and swollen to the point that could only drink with a straw for weeks. I had to take a month off work until I...

Knowledgeable and Awesome - Vancouver, BC

I go to Dr. Younger to help with fine lines and wrinkles. He treats me with Botox 3 times a year. He is extremely knowledgable and professional, with a great sense of humor! I would highly recommend him for anyone that wangs to maintain a youthful appearance, while not looking "overdone". Dr. Younger provides ethical and realistic advice, which is something not all plastic surgeons do. I would...

5 out of 5 stars Mole Removal

Removal of a Facial Growth. Vancouver, BC

Dr. Ritchie Younger is the best. He removed a growth off my face, which required 20 stitches. You cannot even see the scar, and all the feeling in the nerves came back as well. I call him Dr. Miracle and Dr. Genius. Dr. Younger is truly amazing and I would highly recommend him to my friends and family.

5 out of 5 stars Nose Surgery

AWESOME WORK!!! :) Septorhinoplasty - Deviated Septum & Cosmetic Improvement to Bridge and Tip. - Vancouver, BC

Look no further, book your surgery with him! I had both a deviated septum corrected as well as cosmetic surgery to subtly change and straighten my nose as well as narrow the tip, done in one, awesome single surgery. I came in with a dorsal hump as well as a bit of a bulbous tip with a line/split on it, in addition to a diagnosed deviated septum that was blocking my left airway. Honestly, the...

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Botox Experience. Vancouver, BC

My experience with Botox was very positive. It did help me with reducing crow’s feet lines and frown lines. In addition, my upper eyelid became tighter. I was thinking about doing an eyelid surgery, but after using Botox decided to postpone. I am very pleased with the results. If you are thinking about doing an eyelid surgery, I strongly suggest that you try Botox first.

5 out of 5 stars Septoplasty

Already Worth It - Vancouver, BC

I always felt I am not getting enough air through my nose and finally got it examined last year. Turns out my septum hat a huge dent in it and closed of my left nostril pretty well and I also had enlarged turbinates. After a consultation with Dr. Younger I decided to get it fixed, it seemed like a pretty straight forward procedure. My surgery was 2 days ago, on Jan 13. I checked into the...
