Deborah Yu, MD
Dr. Yu trained in plastic and reconstructive surgery at the University of Virginia. She received her medical degree at Georgetown University and completed a full general surgery residency at Albert Einstein College of Medicine/Montefiore Medical Center. She also completed a postdoctoral research fellowship with Dr. Paul Cederna in the Section of Plastic Surgery at the University of Michigan. As an undergraduate, she attended Princeton University and graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Molecular Biology. Dr. Yu’s dozens of publications and presentations cover a range of plastic surgery topics, including cleft palates, peripheral nerve grafts, breast reconstruction, and cosmetic surgery. Dr. Yu has presented her research at several national meetings and received an award for her research on the use of acellular dermal matrix (ADM) in breast reconstruction. Among her prestigious awards and honors, she is the recipient of the 2014 John Bostwick Resident Paper Award (the first winner in the history of the award) and the Raymond F. Morgan Research Award for Plastic Surgery Residents at the University of Virginia.
Dr. Yu has a particular interest in non-surgical cosmetic procedures, including injectables, micro-needling, and laser treatments. When it comes to injectables, she stresses the importance of understanding an individual patient's aesthetic goals to create personalized treatment plans. With the precise and expert technique, the use of non-surgical treatments can enhance natural features and reverse signs of aging with little to no downtime.
