Why Choose Dr. Yoho

11 Important Reasons Why You Should Choose Dr.Yoho to Perform Your Cosmetic Surgery


1 We challenge you to compare our results available on this web site, in our book, or at our office with any physician's in the world. Any other physicians you consult should be willing to show you lots of photos. Want to know the artist? Look at the art. Before you believe any claims, check for yourself. Click here to find out more about the Yoho Method and Mission Statement.


2 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 patients have either been referred or are existing patients coming for a new procedure. Feel free to speak to our patients in our waiting room to learn about this (and do the same with other doctors). Some practices are 95% advertising-based.

3 Qualifications? Dr. Yoho is a diplomate of the American Board of Dermatologic Cosmetic Surgery and also passed boards of the American Board of Laser Surgery. The Cosmetic Surgery Board is the only board that is strictly for beautification surgery. Click here for this Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon's complete Professional Resume or Personal Biography.


4 No uncomfortable general anesthetics are used, no tube is placed in your throat for you to breathe. Although you can be completely awake, using just the local tumescent anesthetic if you choose, most of our patients prefer to be more relaxed. The vast majority have no memory of their procedure. It's your choice. With our techniques, nausea or hangover after the surgery are exceedingly rare.
