Absolute Best Plastic Surgeon In Dallas

Dr. Yaker is by far the absolute best plastic surgeon in Dallas. After 21 years with my original implants done by him I finally had to have them replaced and they are once again amazing. I’m also turning 50 this year and stay healthy but had some stubborn pockets of fat I could not get rid of and recently underwent lipo. After a mere week and a half I’m healing like a champ and already see results. Kimberly B.

Everyone Here Has Been Very Friendly

Everyone here has been friendly while being a client. They have all made me feel comfortable. I started my journey about 2 months ago and still have a few more things that need to be done. Everything completed so far looks amazing. I can't wait to see what happens with the rest of my journey. This place will definitely be a part of it. Laura L.

Excellent Doctor!

Excellent doctor very easy to talk to and takes the time to listen to what I have to say about how I feel and what is going on. Unlike many doctors, just herd you in and say, cut, cut, cut on you. Offered other alternatives first before surgery. Very nice and asks everyone to call him David not doctor. He said his mom didn’t name his doctor. WOW!!!! G.

So happy with my results and highly recommend!

I recently had surgery with Dr. Yaker and had a wonderful experience. I am so happy with my results and highly recommend him (I have already referred 2 of my friends). The staff was very friendly and helpful and made me feel at ease before and after surgery. I’m loving my results and will be using him for any future procedures! A.K.

Dr. Yaker is an amazing surgeon!

Dr. Yaker is an amazing surgeon. He is very easy to talk to and made me feel completely at ease and comfortable. My results from my surgery were beyond my expectations. I had no pain and healed wonderfully. I strongly recommend Dr. Yaker and will go to him for all my future procedures. M.B.

From start to finish, the experience was superb!

I had a lower face lift recently at Dr. Yaker’s outpatient facility. From start to finish, the experience was superb! Dr. Yaker took his time explaining the procedure, while his surgical staff took care of the pre-op instructions. The doctor’s surgical technique is immaculate and the post-op care was very professional. Now, 3 months later, I look great. Thank you Dr. Yaker!! L.P.

Fantastic! Very pleased with staff and Dr Yaker

Fantastic! Very pleased with staff and Dr Yaker. My husband was very hesitant about surgery and he’s been pleasantly surprised with my new natural appearance. The surgery made a subtle change in my appearance and I’m thrilled with the results. No more eye bags and I still look like me, just 15 years younger!! L.B.
