Meet Dr. Mario Yco



“He knows my facial features and does a great job every time”

Love Dr. Yco and staff! I always have a great experience when I go to the office! I’ve been to a few different offices to have my Dysport done, and he is definitely the best! He knows my facial features and does a great job every time, and I never need to come back to have a spot treatment. I recommend Dr. Yco and staff 100%!!

“I’m so grateful that I found Dr. Yco”

Dr. Yco and his staff are simply terrific, and excellent at customer service. They answered all of my questions prior to the procedure and were very accommodating. He did a fantastic job with my PDO thread lift and I’m very pleased with the results. It was hard trusting someone to work on my face and I’m so grateful that I found Dr. Yco. He’s a true facial artist with a great demeanor, and I highly recommend his services.

“Dr. Yco and his team are absolute pros”

Dr. Yco and his team are absolute pros. He takes his time to truly understand what you are looking for and offer appropriate solutions.

About Dr. Yco

One of the things Dr. Mario Yco enjoys most about being a facial plastic surgeon in his Encinitas, California practice is the transformative power of reconstructive surgery and its ability to change people’s lives for the better.

At YCO Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Yco proudly provides his patients with expert care, advanced knowledge, and an eye for artistry. His dedication to current practices and the latest developments in the field of plastic surgery, along with his memberships in professional organizations, make Dr. Yco among the best in his field.

Dr. Yco was inspired to begin his medical career after serving as a corpsman in the United States Navy. It was there he witnessed first-hand how reconstructive surgeries could change people’s lives, so he went on to earn his medical degree from the University of California San Francisco School of Medicine.

After that, he immersed himself in an educational path focusing on internal medicine, general surgery, otolaryngology, head and neck surgeries, and facial plastic surgery. With this extensive background, board certifications by the American Board of Otolaryngology/Head & Neck Surgery and the American Board of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, and a multidisciplinary perspective, Dr. Yco offers his patients the ultimate combination of safety, experience, and attention to detail.

Dr. Yco proudly offers various state-of-the-art surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures that not only change outward appearances but potentially change lives while encouraging greater self-esteem and happiness for all his patients.

He’s a musician at heart and has a good ear for music and pitch.  His dream secret job is to be a judge on The Voice.  He is the drummer of a band called No Country for Old Men.  They meet weekly and perform at local charity events.  He also enjoys golfing, working out, watching old Japanese Samurai films, and spending time with his grandkids.
