About

Bio

About Our boutique facial plastic surgery practice offers an extremely personalized surgical experience and a commitment to excellence. Many plastic surgeons advertise themselves as “different,” boasting a commitment to the needs of their patients. At our office, patient care truly is the bottom line. In our office we strive to cultivate a knowledge-based patient experience geared to providing as much information to our patients regarding the procedures they are interested in. In our practice, it is important that Dr. Yang’s patients know not all procedures are for everyone. What works for some patients may not universally improve other patients’ looks. Balance is crucial to creating an aesthetically appealing finished product that enhances the natural beauty of each patient.
