Dr. Kyle Yamamoto has devoted his career to plastic surgery specific to the face. His extensive training has led him to become the first full-time, fellowship trained, Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon in Northern Nevada. He is an expert in the complex and intricate structures of the face, and offers a wide range of both surgical and non-surgical skills to rejuvenate, reshape, and repair. He is innovative in his approach to patient care and uses the latest technology to procure the best results.

As a local, Dr. Yamamoto grew up in Reno and attended Reno High School. He then became one of the few students to represent Nevada at Dartmouth College and graduated with a dual degree in Chemistry and Economics. Returning to Nevada, Dr. Yamamoto obtained his medical degree from the University of Nevada School of Medicine. He completed his residency in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at the State University of New York-Buffalo and then was one of only 42 surgeons worldwide selected to gain further subspecialty training in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. He completed his fellowship at the prestigious Emory University in Atlanta, GA.

Dr. Yamamoto was trained extensively by Louis DeJoseph, MD, one of the top facial filler injectors in the world, as well as William Silver, MD, a world-renowned rhinoplasty surgeon. Dr. Yamamoto is an expert in short recovery time mini-facelifts, rhinoplasty, revision rhinoplasty, and browlifts. He also specializes in all areas of the face including the eyelid, ear, chin, and neck.

“Facial plastic surgery is the perfect blend of surgery, creativity, and artistic expression,” says Dr. Yamamoto. “The face is the most complex and most beautiful creation of the human body.”

Dr. Yamamoto is thrilled to be practicing and residing in his hometown of Reno. In his free time he enjoys golf, travel, fitness, hiking, and spending time with his wife, Carrie and their new baby Tanner.

“My favorite part of my job is not the final result, but the reaction of my patients when they get exactly the result they want.” –Dr. Yamamoto

Whether you’ve been considering a facelift, rhinoplasty, browlift, eyelid surgery, facial filler injections or another cosmetic surgery procedure, you can trust our highly trained staff to help you achieve your goals and obtain the look you have always desired. The procedure best tailored to your needs is determined with a free in-person consultation with Dr. Yamamoto. During your visit, you can expect a thorough meeting with his entire staff.  Dr. Yamamoto will discuss with you what particular parts of your face you are concerned with.  He will go through a complete history and exam with you. Then you are put in front of the mirror and given the opportunity to show him exactly what you’d like to see changed. In the end, you will put your thoughts together with Dr. Yamamoto and come up with a plan that will fit both your desires and your budget.

Photos are typically taken during your visit and used for computer imaging.  This tool allows Dr. Yamamoto to communicate his ideas to you through the power of changing the images right before your eyes.  This allows you both to understand what your desired outcome will be.

As a rule, surgeons are conservative when using computer imaging.  While these images do not guarantee an actual result, Dr. Yamamoto makes every effort to replicate and often exceed the patient’s expectations.
