Dr Yaremchuk's Mission Statement

My goal is to impact the facial balance. I use the ideal facial blueprint – using anthropometric measurements, science, elements of nature and rational thought. I use proportion of parts and elements of
symmetry to guide my work with each individual patient. With this repertoire, imperfect features or faces can be reconstructed or rejuvenated to make a balanced whole.

The Serious Side of

Plastic Surgery

After Surgery: Jennifer Davis got back her former appearance after eye surgery that reversed the effects of Graves Disease.

In an article published by the Boston Globe, Dr. Yaremchuk – a highly influential and esteemed Boston cosmetic surgeon – was featured for famously helping a young woman suffering from a rare facial paralysis condition caused by Graves’ Disease. The young woman unfortunately awoke one morning to find her eyes permanently bulging out of their eye sockets, and she suffered tremendous emotional scarring during the 2 years she had to face the world in this condition. Luckily, Dr. Yaremchuk offered to provide her with an unusual reconstructive procedure he was well poised in performing and which undoubtedly proved to be a complete success.

A pioneer in the field of cosmetic surgery, Dr. Yaremchuk is definitively the top reconstructive cosmetic surgeon in the New England region, with his globally recognized practice located in the Back Bay, in the heart of Boston. Dr. Yaremchuk also serves as the chief of craniofacial (facial structural deformities) surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital and a professor at the famous Boston-based Harvard Medical School. Dr. Yaremchuk takes great pride in being able to help patients like this young woman, people who desperately deserve the chance to regain control of their lives once again.
