So, 7 years ago I weighed in at 592 pounds at 6' 4" tall...I traveled from my home in Wyoming to SLC, Utah and had the gastric bypass...I successfully lost over 300 pounds. Lots of excess skin and a fatty lump on my right thigh after the weight loss sent me on the hunt for a plastic surgeon. My first procedure was to lipo my legs and get rid of my bump..to tell you that it was not painful would be a lie, but he removed 16 pounds of fat from my legs including the very large mass on my right thigh. When I left to come home, Dr. Yates gave me his cell # so that I could contact him with any concerns...WOW!!!! 3 weeks ago today, I had a breast lift with approx. 15 inches of skin removed and 2 weeks ago I had a very big extended tummy tuck done. My health was placed first and foremost with Dr. Yates and his staff. So far I am extremely pleased with the results. I never expected to look like a Barbie doll, and I don't but his skill and expertise has surpassed any expectations I originally had.
Finding the Best Doc - Layton, UT
So, 7 years ago I weighed in at 592 pounds at 6'...
I saw several in Wyoming, and Colorado. I then saw Dr. Yates picture on the internet and decided to go see him. Our first visit was a success, he was very thorough and told me honestly what he could and could not do...he was blunt and to the point about my expectations and ideas. He won me over instantly...this is not just his job, but his passion. I consider the work doc did to be an added tool for me to use and do the best that I can to improve on his magnificent job. I highly recommend Dr. Yates to anyone wanting to have work done and I plan to continue by journey to have a full body lift done by the time we finish. Not only is doc great, but his staff is exceptional and never make me feel like a pest or uncomfortable to call and ask questions. I appreciate all they have done for me and will never forget their kindness.
