Dr Yu has a long standing reputation as an outstanding surgeon and caring physician. He is dedicated to healing and beauty. The results are natural, not plastic or over stretched. Along with his lovely staff (Roberta and Jaimie) I've known and trusted Dr. Yu for 11 years There is a reason I keep coming back.

Dr. Yu and his staff were welcoming and made the experience very comforting. He is very conscientious about his work and his patients, taking care to make sure they feel at ease and well informed of the procedures. I was very happy with the outcome thus far. There is still more to do before it is all said and done.

I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Yu and his staff for any cosmetic or other surgical issues. He is an artist as well as a compassionate and highly educated professional. Thank you all for your continued aloha and conscientious approach to your patient's care. 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 thoroughly examining me, and extensive conversation I decided to have implant replacement and capsulectomy surgery as soon as possible. Dr. Yu made room for me on the very next surgical date (I went in on Friday and asked if I could have the surgery on Monday). He was amazing. He found much more than he anticipated, dealt with it, and thus far, I have healed beautifully, and look great! I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Yu and his staff for any cosmetic or other surgical issues. He is an artist as well as a compassionate and highly educated professional. Thank you Jamie, Roberta and Dr. Yu for your continued aloha and conscientious approach to your patient's care.

4 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Removal
Dr. Yu met with me several times to answer questions and discuss several options regarding my dissatisfaction with my implants. While he did not agree that the silicone likely caused my increase in physical illness, he agreed that if I felt at all concerned about that possibility, the best thing to do would be to remove them. I am 2 days post surgery so cannot speak to the outcome as of yet. Update: 6 weeks post op. I am very happy I had explant, however I had to ask specifically for capsulectomy and at one month followup questioned Dr Yu further only to find out he did not remove 5% of capsules because they were so thin and adhered to rib cage. This was a medical judgement call I realize, yet I am disappointed as I wanted anything with any possible toxicity removed. Also disappointed that I was not told this after surgery. He and his staff have been kind and helpful in other ways, and I appreciate his assistant Jamie so much. They were not dismissive of me or my concerns at followup I'm happy to say.
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.

Dr. Yu did a wonderful job and is a very caring, competent surgeon--my chin looks natural and very nice! The surgery has lasted for many years.
