 Your Consultation w/ Dr. Leonard Yu

Did you Know?


What to do first

 Relax! Maybe gather some photos of what you may like or don’t like, and be honest what you would like to change, enhance, minimize, or rejuvenate. Dr. Yu may also show you before-and-after photos of his work related to procedures that you are discussing. (Dr. Yu will only show patient results of those patients who have agreed to this, of course!) Dr. Yu is known for his discretion and respect of privacy. Dr. Yu is also known for his calm and thoughtful manner. You may experience that your consultation with Dr. Yu is more of a trusted conversation, especially knowing that he is a fully credentialed plastic surgeon who is highly experienced with Board certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons. Dr. Yu will guide you through the pre-surgery and post-surgery protocols, the risks and realistic expectations of surgery. He does not over-promise; beware of any plastic surgeon that does not outline the risks and rewards, and that results vary with each patient.

For example, there may be times when a revision is necessary; while this occurrence is rare within Dr. Yu’s 30-year own experience,  revisions are completely within Dr. Yu’s expertise. In fact, he has performed revisions from other plastic surgeons’ previous work, especially for breast implants that were done decades prior.  

In fact, Maui Plastic Surgeon Dr. Leonard Yu has earned the reputation over 30 years and is known for happy patients whose proven desirable results have far exceeded their expectations.

 Once you may decide to proceed with surgery, Dr. Yu and his trained staff will provide more detailed information and answer more specific questions, depending on the depth of conversation from the initial consult. Some patients are not sure of surgery during their initial consult; others have done  research and are ready-to go. We have experience with many variations of patients’ concerns and situations. 

Dr. Yu’s surgical artistry, natural results, length and breath of  experience, top credentials including education, pre-and-post surgery care and attention, and the extensive number of procedures he has performed are impressive yet important to YOU as a patient. These facts have given Dr. Leonard Yu the distinction of being known as the “top plastic surgeon on Maui” in Hawai’i.

What to lOOK for When considering a Plastic Surgeon:

1. Is he/she Board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons (ABPS)?  A”general surgery” OR a “cosmetic surgery” credential is NOT equal to a Board-certified ABPS Plastic Surgery credential.  Nor is being a “cosmetic surgeon” or a dermatologist. See video below.

2. Is surgery taking place in a Quad A facility or hospital? This is four AAAA, (not three AAA, which is a very different accreditation).  Quad A credentials requires an ANNUAL accreditation. The protocols required are much more stringent than having a back-up battery which is the bare minimum expectation a patient would expect for ANY surgery.

3. How many surgeries have they performed with this particular procedure?   (This is where #1  becomes evident). Would you have a loved one have heart surgery with any doctor? Or any surgeon who has not performed multiple surgeries in that specialty?

 “Most physicians are board-certified in something, but that doesn’t mean they’re all qualified to perform plastic surgery.  ASPS Member Surgeons are trained in cosmetic and reconstructive procedures of ALL types, including facial rejuvenation, breast augmentation, nose surgery, hand surgery, and more.

Lots of health care provider are now performing plastic surgery procedures, but ASPS Member surgeons have at least 6 years of training in surgery, including cosmetic and reconstructive procedures.” – American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS)
