About Dr. Yco

My interest in the field of medicine started while serving as a corpsman in the United States Navy. I was intrigued with reconstructive surgery because of its ability to change people’s lives for the better. After earning my medical degree, I completed internship training in internal medicine and residency training in both general surgery and otolaryngology/head and neck surgery, including facial plastic surgery.

My goal is to provide my patients with the most knowledgeable, expert care available — and to combine that care with an eye for artistry. I do this by staying current with the latest developments in my field and maintaining membership in professional organizations.

My education involved passing stringent oral and written exams in both disciplines and undergoing years of residency training. The result of this training is the ultimate combination for you: the attention to detail that comes from a cosmetic surgeon who specialize in facial cosmetic & plastic surgery and the safety that comes from a specialist who has completed extensive training and research in his field.
