I had a primary rhinoplasty and buccal fat removal last year and I'm seriously loving my result. His bedside manner is excellent and the staff are also very attentive and caring. I have a feminine nose with slimmer face now and I'm enjoying my new look so much. If I had to choose again, I would still choose Dr. Yoo over and over again. Thanks Dr. Yoo.

Special thanks to Dr. Yoo and his team for the wonderful job they did :) I appreciate Dr. Yoo's attention to detail and beautiful sense of artistry! I am so pleased with how my nose has healed. When starting my search for an Asian rhinoplasty specialist, I had only a vague notion of what results I initially wanted, but Dr. Yoo translated it from the pictures I brought in; into the great result on my face (that fits my face.) The staff was patient, courteous, and very helpful. Dr. Yoo performed an Asian rhinoplasty with rib cartilage and fascia, and WOW! the result is even better than I could have ever expected. I wanted something dramatic, but also very natural, and that's exactly what he gave me! I am so glad I chose Dr. Yoo to perform my rhinoplasty procedure ! He is very professional and caring, which really helped to reassure me and keep me calm during my recovery even when I was very swollen. I am so happy that I found Dr. Yoo after all the research I did online and consultations I had with other Dr's. If you want the best results for your nose my suggestion is make an appointment/consultation to see/talk with Dr. Yoo and his wonderful staff. He is as good as it gets and I'm truly grateful to have found Dr. Donald Yoo!

I wanted to take a moment and spread the news and show appreciation to Dr. Don Yoo and staff. If there were more stars I would rate the highest***** My experience with everyone at the office was excellent from the day I first walked into the consultation (for Asian Rhinoplasty Septoplasty Surgery.) I was very nervous and hesitant in the beginning, but after the first visit I felt relieved and calm about going thru with the procedure. Dr. Yoo, Anna, and Chris took their time to talk with me each visit and were very attentive to all my questions, comments, and pre-surgery concerns/goals. They also helped me understand what procedures/strategies we would need to execute to achieve the results I wanted. The Dr.'s words were very helpful and gave me a new perspective. I especially appreciated his suggested modifications. The extra time and effort he put in was certainly worthwhile because I feel so much better now being able to breath when I had a deviated septum as well as wanted to improve my image cosmetically on my nose. Dr Yoo is an expert in Asian Rhinoplasty / Septoplasty Surgery, whose work and results are amazing. I am thrilled with the outcome of my operation. The results were far better than I expected and I would highly recommend Dr. Yoo to friends & relatives and anyone looking to enhance their outer appearance and improving any issues they have with breathing as well. I feel I had flawless results and want to commend the Dr. for his superb services on me.

I've always hated my side profile, but wasn't really up for surgery, the sound of surgery always scared me a little bit. Finally decided to check out the non surgical rhinoplasty. I did some research to find a really good Dr. I took my time looking for the right Dr, until I found Dr. Yoo. The reviews on his website were all amazing, and the photos of the before and after for the non surgical rhinoplasty were amazing! I'm 1000% glad I did this! It makes a huge difference, yet I still feel like I look like myself. Love it! The procedure was quick and painless. Everybody at Dr.Yoo's office were very welcoming & friendly. While I was getting my procedure done, Dr. Yoo & his assistant made me feel very relaxed. If you're thinking about getting this procedure, go do it! Dr. Yoo is amazing! I would highly recommend everyone to go to him that's interested in getting the non surgical rhinoplasty.

Got my Asian double eyelid and nose done by Dr. Donald Yoo. He is exceptional. Very precise and observant. The surgery has addressed all of my concerns (mostly aesthetic). Ever since I got my stitches taken out, I've been enjoying the recovery & my new look. Once the swelling goes down, I'll be even more thrilled than I am now. I cannot describe how glad I am to have chosen Dr. Yoo as my surgeon.

I trust Dr. Yoo with any type of procedure because of the amazing experience I had with him over the past couple of years. I had a really bad nose job from back in the days from a different surgeon. Dr. Yoo took out the silicone and used my own cartilage to fix my nose. have been beyond happy with my nose for the past 2 years. All the issues I had with my previous nose have been fixed and the shape is also much prettier. An amazingly talented surgeon!

I just want to say thank you so much for being so wonderful, talented and making me feel totally comfortable at my pre op visits and the day of my surgery. I had my revision rhinoplasty surgery on 11/11/15. I was so nervous about my nose job because I have had five revision surgeries prior to this one and all were complete failures. I was obsessed and conscious about my failed nose for a very long time. I was skeptical and nervous about going under the knife again, but when I met Dr. Yoo he gave me hope. He assured me that my nose will look better than before. IT WAS WELL WORTH IT! You and your staff were so helpful, friendly and informative. I just want to thank you all for taking such great care of me. I’ve always hated my nose and especially hated it in pictures, but now I love my nose and love to show it off in photos. Even as early as three weeks after surgery I felt great and could see a beautiful new nose. I am WHOLE again. Dr. Yoo, you are an amazing plastic surgeon and Artist.

Dr Yoo is amazing with facial fillers. He recently treated my forehead and crowsfeet with Botox to soften and smooth my fine lines. My results are amazing, and he has a very gentle hand. I would highly recommend him for any facial filler procedure.

I’m a firm believer that you should go to a board certified facial plastic surgeon for nonsurgical procedures like Botox and fillers vs a dermatologist or skincare center because you want to go to a professional who has in-depth knowledge about how facial muscles work to know the ideal location for injecting the perfect dosage. As a newcomer to the world of plastic surgery (2 years now), Dr. Yoo has educated me and brought much insight on preventative care. For example, I used to conduct extensive research on skincare products to find a solution for my sunken eye bags. However, based on my experience, no topical product will ever diminish those dark circles (which are partly genetic), eye bags or lines/nascent wrinkles. Regardless of the fancy brand you buy and the magical ingredient du jour they advertise. Save your money because topical products are too little too late when it comes to making a difference - good to maintenance but don't expect them to change your look radically by any means. Surgery and fillers are the only things that will make a dramatic difference when it comes to those eye bags/wrinkles. Dr. Yoo is always conservative in his approach and was very open in discussing the risks and benefits of each treatment option and would make recommendations for each of my beauty concerns. He administered minimal injections and took the time to thoroughly go through what I could realistically expect so that I wasn't disappointed after the procedure when I saw the final results. He would also explain to me what an increased amount of dosage would look like and whether or not that route would get me to the place I wanted to get to. Because of his training, experience, communication skills and the fact that he really cares about patients and not about the money, I really feel like Dr. Yoo is one of the best plastic surgeons you can go to.
