Meet Dr. Yoho
Meet Dr. Yoho
The greatest honor a physician can have is a practice that is almost entirely by referral. For more than seven years, greater than 90 percent of our Fresno and Los Angeles cosmetic surgery patients have either been referred or are existing patients coming for a new procedure. Our patients have come from every state and all around the world. With this steady patient flow, Dr. Yoho's experience as a Fresno and Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon is extraordinary. He has performed many thousands of surgeries over his career. And in order to improve even more, we encourage our patients to evaluate us in writing on every visit. Some of the nice things people have said about us can be seen at our testimonials page.
Dr. Yoho is exceedingly well trained and qualified, and passed the boards by the American Board of Dermatologic Cosmetic Surgery and the American Board of Laser Surgery, and is a fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery as well as the American Society of Cosmetic Breast Surgery.
Additionally, Dr. Yoho is board certified in Emergency Medicine, The American Board of Emergency Medicine, an additional safety factor for his patients. He has a solo practice in an Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) certified facility (see Understanding Board Certification for more information). Dr. Yoho has published over 20 articles for physicians in medical journals and frequently speaks at international cosmetic surgery meetings. He has published lead articles in both Dermatologic Surgery and Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the most prestigious journals in cosmetic surgery.
As a physician, Dr. Yoho brings an eclectic mix of physical, psychological, and spiritual disciplines to his "holistic" view of cosmetic surgery in Los Angeles. In addition to his busy practice in Pasadena, California, he is also a master rock climber, yoga enthusiast and outdoor adventurer. In 2005, he won his age group in a triathlon, and in 2006 climbed the "Nose" route on El Capitan in Yosemite in less than 24 hours, which has been done to date by only one other person over 50 years of age. And Dr. Yoho knew from early childhood that he was going to follow in his parents' footsteps and become a physician. His mother is a dermatologist and his father a urologic surgeon.
Dr. Yoho has a unique perspective on the art of cosmetic surgery, having had BOTOX® Cosmetic, liposuction, cheek implants, non-invasive photo-facial treatments, a deep TCA peel, and injection with Radiesse® into his facial lines. He believes that emotional well-being, diet and physical fitness are an intrinsic part of the cosmetic surgery process. Also read about Dr. Yoho's own diet and exercise program.
