Meet Dr. York Yates

plastic surgeon salt lake city utHi, 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!


Dr. York Yates was born and raised in Utah. He completed his bachelor and medical degrees at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, Utah. Graduating at the top of his class he had the opportunity to pursue his training in Plastic Surgery straight out of medical school. During his six years of plastic surgery residency training at the University of Missouri he received a broad experience in all aspects of Plastic Surgery including cosmetic surgery, reconstructive surgery, microsurgery and hand surgery.

Patient Testimonials

I had a tummy tuck back in March, I am now 3 months post op and my results have exceeded my expectations. Dr. Yates is very professional, honest and friendly! His staff is awesome and made me feel very comfortable. I will be returning to him for other surgeries in the future. I have also been and will be referring friends and family to him too!


“I can’t say enough about Dr. Yates and his staff. Everyone was so professional yet made me feel completely at ease. Dr. Yates is meticulous about his work and this showed at each and every appointment.

I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Yates to anyone interested in plastic surgery. Should I ever consider any other type of plastic surgery, I would not go to anyone else.

I am extremely pleased with my results.”
