5 out of 5 stars Chin Implant

Custom Jaw/Chin Implant & Lipo

When you are thinking about cosmetic surgery, especially on your face, its a big deal, not in the sense of the surgery itself because there's so many Drs that can perform the surgery but as I did my research I realized that the art is in the results and that on your face, tiny differences make all the difference in the world. I'm really happy with the results from my procedures and that for the first time in my life I decided to put all other factors aside and go with the best for myself and I did that with Dr. Yaremchuck. His staff was great and the whole experience was pleasant from start to finish I cant imagine it having gone any better and that's why I am giving him 5 stars down the board. I absolutely and highly recommend.

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Yaremchuck the Best Surgeon in the World! Canthopexy, Paranasal impants, Buccal Fat - Boston, MA

I would like to tell a huge Thank you to Dr.Yaremchuck for the work that he has done to my face. First of all, he is extremely qualified professional and has vast knowledge of esthetics. Dr. Yaremchuck spent a lot of time answering all my questions via email and afterword on concultation. He was very informative on what to expect both as far as the actual procedure as well as post operative...

5 out of 5 stars Cheek Augmentation

Custom Facial Implants: Chin Jaw, Cheek, Rhinoplasty, Fat Removal - Boston, MA

Dr. Yaremchuk is calm, knowledgeable, friendly and most importantly--a SKILLED surgeon. The customized facial implants he designed are brilliant. My face looks stronger, more masculine, more handsome, more angular--all of the things I wanted. Recovery is tough and painful when doing so many surgeries at once like I did. I recommend making sure you follow all instructions and have someone care for you for a few days. Also take all necessary medicines. It's only been a little over a month but I could not be happier with the results. For a big facial change including implants and rhinoplasty, THERE IS NO ONE BETTER. I did many procedures at a time wanting a large "overhaul" of my face: rhinoplasty, customized jaw/cheek/chin implants and cheek fat removal. The recovery was painful from so many however I had good care. The results are INCREDIBLE. I'm extremely happy with this surgeon and the care he gave me. He was also the only surgeon who was able to do it when other surgeons insisted that fat grafting or bone cutting was necessary--Yaremchuk was able to do it with customized implants. I can't recommend him highly enough. UPDATE: September 2017. It's now been over a couple years since my complex surgery with Dr. Y and I frankly don't think Yelp should be in the business of reviewing surgeons to begin with, especially since they allow for ads that look like reviews. But I want to say how much I stand by with what I wrote. If you're not sure if I'm a real person, CONTACT ME. I can tell you full details of why I'm EXTREMELY happy with the surgery that he performed and the care I receieved from him and his cash. Is the overall outcome absolutely perfect? Certainly not. But is it amazing, wonderful, and life-changingly positive for me? ABSOLUTELY YES! Here is my full Real Self review for proof of who I am, the surgery performed, and details including many updated pictures and before pictures as well. I can't speak to or for everyone's experience and I don't know which reviews out there for a given surgeon are real, reliable, exaggerated, or accurate, but I can tell you that mine was fantastic and more than what I could have hoped for. realself.com/review/bost…

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Most Greatful Every Year for 15 Years Now. - Boston, MA

I am staying in touch with the doctor Y. for years. I do maintain my face and body. I attend and do non invasive procedures. It all helps to keep my spirits up and not to easily give in to the aging process. Very grateful patient.

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty, Para-nasal & Infra-orbital Implants, Chin Augmentation - Boston, MA

Had a very good experience with the doctor and his staff. A great facility, friendly staff and a world renowned surgeon. You can't go wrong with him. Make sure to figure out exactly what you want before you meet the doctor. That will make the process a little easier. I was not sure exactly what I wanted and it took a while to figure that out with the doctor. It will make it much easier if you can articulate what you are looking for. Then ask questions and go from there. They won't try to sell you anything. So ask plenty of questions. Which is how I found out about para-nasal and infra-orbital implants: which made a huge positive impact. Also, I came in for the procedure by myself... no caretaker with me. His facility had a great overnight recovery room with an overnight nurse. I highly recommend it. You'll be fully capable of walking out of the facility the next day to continue recovering in a nearby hotel!

33 Y/o Male, Just Had my Chin Implant with Dr Michael Yaremchuk - Boston, MA

I have to say I was...

5 out of 5 stars Cheek Augmentation

Amzing Results with Cheek and Jaw Implants and Eye Shape - Boston, MA

I had a concave face, practically no cheekbones or cheek fullness. Dr. Yaremchuck created custom, porous implants that he screwed on my face. These became part of my sceleton and cannot move like other non-porous implants. Skin and tissue also grows on them. The result: a life change. I looked beautiful, which made a huge difference with the kind of women I could date, self confidence, even...
