Confident Mom

September 25, 2023

My experience with Advanced Institute had been ongoing for about 4 months now. As a whole team they all work together flawlessly and take care of their customers. While each member of the staff I’ve met has treated me like family, Dr. Yu is the reason I’m writing the review. From the moment I met her, I felt comfortable. She is incredibly knowledgeable but is down to earth. I had a Mommy Makeover and I was nervous (It’s not a small sugery) but I knew I had a surgeon who truly cared about me as a person. Surgery day went super smooth. The road to recovery has been difficult in that my body went through a major change but Dr. Yu has been there the whole way. The whole office has. I can’t talk her and the team up enough. This summer, I will get to be a confident Mom in a bathing suit for the first time. Thank you Advanced Institute!

Breast Augmentation

September 24, 2023

I am about 4 mos post-op from a breast augmentation by Dr. Filip. I am so incredibly happy with my results and the quality of service at AI. They take time to learn about what you want and don’t try to upsell you on anything you don’t. I felt super comfortable throughout the entire process and left feeling much more confident than before. Thanks Dr. Filip, Nikki, Allie and the rest of the team there!

Skilled Artist

Couldn’t be happier with my tummy tuck experience. A friend of a friend recommended this place and I am so glad they did. Dr. Filip is a skilled artist. My tummy tuck scar 1 year postop is almost invisible. I couldn’t have hoped for better results.

Neck & Face Lift

August 14, 2023

I recently had a neck and face lift done by Dr. Kim. I cannot possibly express how happy I am with not just the results but with the entire process as well. I saw Dr Kim for my initial consultation in the Redlands office. I was greeted by a staff who is not just welcoming, but very professional. Dr Kim spent quite some time with me, really listening to what I was looking for, which was to just look like me minus the visual signs of aging. She thoroughly explained the entire process, giving me her input about the final outcome as well as expectations about the recovery process. Prior to surgery the staff kept in regular contact regarding any medical requirements I needed (EKG) as well as giving me a packet of information that was thoroughly explained. All my questions were answered, and I never once felt rushed. The entire staff is just amazing.

And the best part? The outcome! Dr. Kim is truly a master in her profession. I am absolutely amazed by how I look. It is exactly what I was looking for; I look like a more youthful and fresher me. The change is subtle enough that others will think you went on a long relaxing vacation, yet the change has been profound for me. I love looking at myself in the mirror. What a gift is that! I would do it again in a second.

For anyone considering a cosmetic procedure, Look no further. Dr. Kim and her staff are absolutely the best there is!

Wow special Thank You to Dr. Miles an the whole surgical staff, office staff. Everyone is so nice. Dr. Miles is the best, he took special time to explain the procedure never forcing anything you don’t need or ask for. Dr. Miles really cares about his patients, the special accommodations, I needed an the care he truly shows. I am so please with results and the true meaning of a Dr. that cares all the way, even follow up appointments he is 100% attentive. I recommend Dr. Miles for any kind of plastic surgery.
