Arthur Yu

Plastic Surgeon
59 Las Tunas Drive, Arcadia, CA, 91007
I never use a cookie-cutter approach to treat my patients.


Dr. Arthur Y. Yu specializes in face and body sculpturing, eyelid surgeries and fat grafting and is known for his face and body work. “Upper eyelid surgery has totally transformed my career in recent years,” says Dr. Yu, who has developed new, innovative aesthetic techniques and approaches that are set to make significant changes in cosmetic surgery and medicine. He also utilizes the latest nonsurgical advancements like new injectables, lasers, skin-tightening treatments and Jan Marini Skin Research skin care to help achieve his beautiful results. “To ensure patient safety, I perform all my injection treatments with fillers and botulinum toxins,” adds the doctor.

A Minute With

  1. My dream innovation

    An ultra minimally invasive approach for facelifts. I currently employ a less-invasive approach at my practice. People love it for the huge benefit with little recovery time

  2. Three words that best describe me

    Honest, artistic, dedicated

  3. What i’m best known for

    Upper eyelid surgery, face sculpting with fat grafting or fillers, and body sculpting with Mommy Makeovers. The results of which have brought us many clients from all over the world, including some very famous celebrities

  4. Why i employ a less-is-more philosophy

    Enhancing your beauty isn’t something you need to loudly tell the world. You can do a little now and add more in the future. My less-is-more approach results in faster recovery and less signs of surgery.

  5. My surgical niche

    “Organic” face and body sculpting using fat transfer, more youthful-looking eyelid surgeries and a less-invasive approach to rhinoplasty

  6. My motto

    If I set a goal, I know I can always succeed if I put my mind to it

  7. What new services are you excited to offer?

    Lipogems® nanofat grafting for the face, hands and especially the lips

  8. Why did you choose this new service?

    Fat grafting is great for restoring lost volume to the face and hands. The FDA-approved Lipogems nanofat grafting treatment utilizes much smaller fat cells without any chemical processing and offers much better results. I also use it to rejuvenate and recontour the lips and there has been an extremely high satisfaction rate

  9. What is your approach to breast augmentation?

    For most people, I recommend fat grafting because of the natural feel and lack of most potential risks associated with implant surgeries

  10. What is the most exciting thing going on in your field right now?

    Current technologies and surgical modalities are already so advanced that we can literally freeze how people look at their current age and slow the aging process down drastically
