This is my third time here and every single time I’m welcomed warmingly by the receptionists. Wait time is always short! They will escort you into your personal room and someone will talk to you about everything and you can ask away with questions! It can be a bit nerve wracking especially if you’d new to this, I know I was but the girls there made me feel so comfortable and relaxed! Dr. Yu is seriously amazing, he’s quick and efficient and works diligently to get you the results you want. Ask him anything! What I love most is they try to make everything as pain free as they can! This is the only med spa I will go to! Try them out if your thinking about it!!

I had buccal fat removal 14days ago. I did it under local anesthesia and it was essentially painless! I feel no pain, and swelling is minimal. I’m super happy with my results so far. Everyone keeps asking me if I’ve lost weight, I just finally look like my actual weight and not more because of my puffy cheeks. My experience with Dr. Yu was amazing. He made me feel comfortable and was honest about whether or not I was a candidate for the procedure. He was so understanding and took his time with listening to my concerns. On the day of the procedure I had some anxiety, but both Dr. Yu and Ms. Phoebe ensured that I was in great hands. The entire process has been very smooth, the doctors at Premier Cosmetic Surgery and Med Spa have been extremely kind and professional. The procedure itself was very easy and straight to the point. I would highly recommend! Can’t wait to see my full results in a few weeks.

He is very skilled at his craft and you will not regret coming here for what you need. Shout out to Kat for communicating with me throughout the process and answering all my bothersome questions! I definitely recommend Premier Cosmetic Surgery! Awesome staff, calming atmosphere and a world class doctor!

Out of all the places I’ve gone to in the LA area, Premier Cosmetic is the best. I come for injections. Dr. Yu’s TipLyft technique is like none other. As soon as I arrive, Kat kindly welcomes me. She is very professional, sweet, kind, and knowledgeable of all of Dr. Yu’s procedures. Dr. Yu is a talented and intelligent artist who helps create a natural and better version of myself. Thank you, Dr. Yu and Kat!

I found Premiere Cosmetic in Arcadia while researching for Asian nose jobs. I was unsure if I wanted to go through with a procedure and stumbled upon Dr. Yu’s Tip Lyft. I though this may be what I am looking for without having to go under the knife. Echo was my consultant who checked me in. She walked me through the procedure and answered all of my questions. I was nervous and she made me feel at ease. All of the staff at Premiere Cosmetic are very caring, patient and attentive, even the doctor himself. My first visit was in December. I am back for my second injection. Depending upon your goals, Tip Lyft can take 1-2 syringes. I will say it isn’t pain free, but it isn’t horrible either. Dr. You spent over 20 years developing this process. He is amazing with his knowledge and assessment of you. My results were nothing short of remarkable. I LOVE it. There is lidocaine within his procedure/process to make this as pain free as possible. I definitely recommend this medical clinic for all your aesthetic needs!
