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.
Plastic surgery procedures
Dr.Yaremchuk’s facelift technique results in a younger and natural, but not “done," look. The surgery is done in a deeper plane which results in a full-thickness
Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, can fix bags, dark circles, droopy eyelids, and tear trough issues. Dr. Yaremchuk employs several techniques in his eyelid surgeries to restore youthful contour and dimensions to the eyelids.
Rhinoplasty, both primary and secondary, is a large component of Dr. Yaremchuk’s practice. He uses both open and closed techniques as appropriate for the individual needs of the patient. Rhinoplasty can address droopy tip, bulbous tip, dorsal hump, hanging columella, and wide nostrils, among other concerns.
Dr. Yaremchuk employs his knowledge and experience with craniofacial surgery and biomaterials to create new facial skeletal contours. Using facial implants he can mimic the facial appearance obtained with more extensive facial skeletal surgeries. Dr. Yaremchuk custom carves all facial implants from basic shapes - many of which he has personally designed.
Neurotoxins, fillers & fat implants
Dr. Yaremchuk has extensive experience in the use of neurotoxins, fillers and fat injections, which all have roles in facial rejuvenation and facial contour enhancement. Whether as alternatives or complements to surgical options, these non-surgical interventions can help to refresh and rejuvenate your look.
Dr. Yaremchuk has extensive experience in breast augmentation and reduction surgeries. He routinely reconstructs breasts immediately following mastectomy procedures to minimize patients' experience of breast loss. Liposuction and abdominoplasty are significant portions of Dr. Yaremchuk's cosmetic surgery practice.

"Everybody tells me that even after 2 years I have the best facelift they have ever seen. I know many of my friends and acquaintances have gone to see you. I hope some have actually gone ahead with the surgery. It makes such a difference in one's life."
"I just wanted to thank you very, very much for the incredible results I already see from my surgery last week... The results look so natural. I'm so happy!"
"It is as much a blessing as a relief to have you as my surgeon. Your peerless skill is matched only by your immense kindness and compassion. Thank you or all you do for me and for countless others. You have clearly devoted your entire life to our care, and we are all the better for it."
"There really is no way for me to adequately explain the feeling of incredible gratitude I have for your help last week… I shall always remember the compassionate assistance you showed me."
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 infamous 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.
