RealSelf community says"He is an artist "on the side" (as in has displays of amazing paintings he's done all throughout his office) and I like his previous cosmetic procedures." "He is an artist and that makes me feel better about choosing him for my revision because this is an asthetic altering surgery, not just a surgery to insert implants and send me on my way...." "During our consultation I didn't bring any photos of breasts I wanted because I didn't want to desire something that would not look good on my body type."

Dr. Young and his staff went above and beyond my expectations. I could not have asked for better group to take care of me. They are professional, knowledgable, and more importantly, they made me feel so comfortable and personally cared about. This team is a class act!!!

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Young, his staff and his overall patient care. I was referred to him by Dr. Hall who was the prior surgeon that hand picked Dr. Young to take over his practice upon retiring in Summer 2015. Dr. Hall had nothing but kind things to say about the character and overall ease of presence that Dr. Young carries himself with. Upon first meeting him in my consult, he made me feel warm and welcome and all my inhibitions about sitting across from him in a robe scantily clad quickly went out the door. We discussed the abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) procedure and he was extensive in detail and thorough while patient to answer any questions or concerns I had. I never once was made to feel as if my opinion wasn't valued or if my particular shape and weight was more than it should be and he assured me that he was confident he could assist in my overall expectations to look and feel better about myself. He was very honest in what I should expect, clearly laid out any potential risks as well as prefacing how my current body shape and weight could impact the overall results. He ultimately armed me with enough factual information to make me feel empowered to make my decision to move forward or wait based on my own personal needs. I called Liz, his administrator and scheduler, and asked a million questions leading up to the day of surgery. She was always so sweet and answered what she could and if she wasn't sure she would enlist the help of Dr. Young's nurse Kim. Kim is so warm and makes you feel so at ease and comfortable and she has a very nurturing way of caring for you. His staff is the backbone of his practice and he has chosen them well. On the day of my surgery, Dr. Young came to see me before surgery and draw all over me. That is the most fun I have ever had in my life, total confidence booster. He asked if I had any last minute questions to which I razzed him and told him to be very thorough and not screw up. He smiled and gave me a nod of certainty that he had it all under control. Every nurse I came in contact with raved about how amazing he was as a surgeon and how he was a perfectionist and beyond thorough when working on a patient. The pride he takes in his work in each of his patients speaks for itself when you first see yourself in a mirror after surgery. The thing I have grown to appreciate the most about Dr. Young is not just his meticulousness as a plastic surgeon but the calmness and ease he helps you feel as a patient; before, during and after surgery. He has a great personality that is easy going and just makes you feel at home. He is truly one of a kind and really one of the few down to earth all around nice guys. If you are looking for a plastic surgeon this is your man. You won't regret your choice in allowing him to take your care into his own hands and see you through your transformation. Call and schedule your free consult and thank me later. Thank You Dr. Young, Kim and Liz for truly being amazing and being there to share in my journey of rewarding myself for being a momma to 7 children and taking my sexy back. I could not be happier with my results and never thought I would feel like this was the best money I've ever spent but it has been. From the bottom of my heart, you all have been the cherry on top!

I am SO EXTREMELY happy with my results. Dr. Young did an amazing job in taking my verbal description of what I wanted and transformed it into ME! I seriously could not have asked for a better experience. He is very humble about his work and truly is an artist. You often times read that women wished they wouldn’t have waited so long to have this procedure done. I am in that boat as well- I wish I had done this sooner!!! You will NOT be disappointed if you choose Dr. Young as your plastic surgeon!
I'm a little nervous thinking 450 cc are too big but I have A's now and want a Full D. I keep looking at pics and going back and forth???????? my friend is about same size as me and got 415 SRFs and they look amazing but big enough for me so thinking maybe I should do that but the difference is like 5 oz so why not go a lil bigger???? Ugh I'm getting so nervous and I go in in two days...
I had went to see a total of three surgeons upon my husband's request. I thought I would be going to the first one, as I know someone who had used them. Dr. Young was my final consultation and I couldn't be thankful enough to have found him. His staff has been amazing and super helpful. Dr. Young was warm and welcoming. The awkward body assessment was much less awkward and he talked to me as long as I wanted and did not rush me out the door as fast as he could, which is what I ran into with a previous consultation. I feel confident Dr. Young will have me looking great in no time!

Dr Young really listened to my concerns about my body, and detoured me from wanting an unnecessary procedure! He was right, with his recommendations for my tummy it made my booty look better. I can't be any happier with my results.

Dr. Young is wonderful! He knows what he's doing! I was very very hesitant about the sizes we discussed, worrying that they would be too large for my frame. But he said to trust him and I'm so glad that I did! He did a beautiful job. Only 2 days post op and they already look natural. His staff also goes above and beyond to assure and encourage you. I highly recommended this team. I've already referred him to two other friends. I'm beyond impressed with the service.
I am a board certified plastic surgeon with a busy cosmetic practice. I strive to perform individualized, technically advance surgical procedures with excellent results. It is my goal, and the goal of my staff to anticipate our patients needs and exceed their expectations.

An abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, is a very commonly performed procedure for abdomen and torso contouring. This is a great procedure, for the right patients that produces dramatic contour changes through the waistline and torso. It is designed to address abdominal wall laxity and redundant abdominal skin and tissue. In my practice I address the entire torso, not just the front portion of a patient. I routinely perform liposuction of the lower back and flank,...
There are a variety of questions patients have about their recovery process after breast implants. I spend time in each consultation educating each patient about what to expect during their recovery from surgery. The most important things I mention are what they will look like during the first month, and then the next several months. I also spend time discussing how the healing process evolves with time. Most breast implants are placed under the muscle. The pectoralis muscle...
Silicone versus SalineThis is one of the primary questions when considering a breast augmentation. I break women seeking breast implants into two main categories. The A or B cup woman and the C or D cup woman that is seeking augmentation. The A or B cup woman generally does not have a large volume of their own breast tissue to disguise an implant and I will recommend silicone. The silicone implant in these women looks and feels more natural. The silicone implant also does a great job of...
