Meet Dr. York Yates
Hi, I am Dr. York Yates, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Utah. Being a plastic surgeon is truly amazing. Having the ability to create a beautiful new reality for very grateful patients with my hands is very rewarding. That trust comes with great responsibility and I do not take this burden lightly. I am focused on staying ahead of the curve with technology and techniques. This is more than a profession. Plastic surgery is a passion!
I am not inclined to jump on new technology just because it is the newest. Plastic surgery history is riddled with a number of such devices and techniques that are considered ineffective at best or possibly dangerous.
CoolSculpting is actually the first “nonsurgical” technique I have ever offered. This after much research and even trying it out on myself on one side to see the true benefit and feel the full experience.
I would be thrilled to have you as a patient and friend, schedule a consultation today!
