Second Breast Augmentation from Dr. Yu. Went Bigger, Equally Amazing Results. - Kahului, HI

I've had two breast augmentations from Dr. Yu. Both turned out incredibly well. My first breast augmentation was in 2008, Dr. Yu got me perfect results. I wanted a very natural looking augmentation, and he really understood exactly what I was after. My results were amazing and I was extremely happy. None of my friends that I met after even knew I already had an augmentation until I told...

2nd Time Around... Different Doctor Who Gave Me What I Wish I Had the First Time! So Worth It! - Kahului, HI

My original BA was in 2007 with a different PS with many, many years of experience... I was naturally a 34B and desired larger breasts and to correct some slight asymmetry. I was hoping to get HP Implants but was told I was not a candidate for those and ended up with 480 (right)/470 (left) Saline Mod+ Implants via transax (he insisted this method so there would not be any scars directly on...

Seroma Removal - Kahului, HI

I had an egg shaped seroma on my shin due to a paddle board mishap. I had it drained six times by different doctors. It returned every time. Dr Yu was the only doctor smart enough to realize that the surrounding scar tissue had to be removed as well. Now I just have a tiny scar in it's place. Thank you Dr Yu!

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

A New Face, a New Life - Kahului, Maui, HI

Dr. Yu is not only a gifted surgeon he is an artist. I asked for a facelift and to loose some wrinkles. What he saw was that the fullness of my face (triangle of youth) and been lost and needed augmentation. Yes, I got the facelift, but it was the fuller cheeks and temples made the most noticeable impact. My face looks beautiful again! ... Also, even though I am slender, I asked Dr. Yu...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

The Real Ones Tried to Kill Me - Maui, HI

I was diagnosed with lobular carcinoma, breast cancer. I was a candidate for reconstruction. I interviewed several plastic surgeons and Dr. Yu was the man for the job. After the general surgeon removed both breasts, Dr. Yu replaced the empty space with expanders until the final product is put in after all treatments are done. He and his staff took great care of me during my recovery and follow...

The Best - Maui, HI

After 37 years, I discovered one of my breasts was hard . . . and I was also having several other symptoms (may or may not be related). It seemed this "hardening" occurred suddenly and practically overnight. I had been seeing Dr. Yu for a few years since another corrective procedure he performed and for fillers etc. When I phoned his office, Jamie insisted I come in right away. After...

Breast Lift and Augmentation - Kahului, HI

I am so happy with my procedure. The outcome is everything I hoped for . My friend and daughter used Dr Yu for there Augmentations and they highly recommended him. I was very nervous , but wanted this procedure done. It is pricey, but worth every dollar. I was laid off from work so it gave me plenty time to recover .

Happy to Be Myself

I just had my silicone implants removed after having them for only 19 months. I have chronic lyme disease and my symptoms of fatigue and neurological difficulties increased greatly after implantation. I never felt comfortable with my size either, only wanting to be a C again after a lift, but becoming a D. I'm doing great 4 days out, so happy to be clear headed now, did not need pain meds...

Positive Customer Service - Kahului, HI

I heard about Dr. Yu from word of mouth. I can count on Jamie and Roberta in the front office to give me the best consideration as a patient. It's fascinating to understand the technology advances since 2007 available now to remedy my situation. After six years of post surgery consideration, I'm ready to accrue my down payment for the procedure. Rate is always a consideration; however, I look at plastic surgery as a return on investment.

5 out of 5 stars Chin Liposuction

I Had Two Chin Liposuctions on One Chin - Maui, HI

I had chin liposuction to get rid of my double chin. However, when my chin healed, I could feel a large, hard bump about the size of a tangerine under the center of my chin, connected to both the chin and the neck. I was shocked as I had followed all post-operative directions and had worn the chin support stocking fabric brace as per instructions. The plastic surgeon assured me that the...
