The staff at Palmetto Plastic Surgery is dedicated to providing you, the patient, a positive and satisfying experience.

Thank you!

I had breast reconstruction with a previous surgeon which needed to be fixed. Dr. Young and his staff took such great care of me and fixed what the previous surgeon had done to the point of it never looking like something went wrong the first time! I am extremely satisfied and if I need or want another procedure I will be going back to him. Thank you!!

Words can’t begin to describe how I feel about Dr. Young

Words can’t begin to describe how I feel about Dr. Young and his team. I feel more like family than a patient. After a horrific accident ripping both legs open I thought I would never wear shorts again because of my wounds. Several doctors had counted me out but not my knight and shining armour Dr. Young he had a vision and a plan for my legs.. With his work I cry as I type this I wore my first pair of shorts this summer. With the accident my self esteem had hit rock bottom between my legs and the weight gain in my stomach. Dr. Young fixed my stomach as well and I had no idea he was going to go that far. I have never met a doctor more selfless in my life and his team is the exact same way. I have to that I have totally blessed to my whole Palmetto Plastic Surgery family in my life I don’t know what I would’ve done without them. So from the bottom of my heart I thank you guys for caring for when I was at my lowest. 

Dr. Young has a special eye & feel that goes beyond skill

Dr. Young, his Intern, & the entire staff at Palmetto Pastic Surgery are absolutely incredible! They made me feel welcome, safe and valued. They took the time to evaluate which proceedure would give me the results & contour I desired. I went into the proceedure feeling prepared & ready to manage my recovery efficiently. I could not be happier with the outcome! As I heal, my results are better than I expected! My incision points healed rapidly & swelling was minimal. My surgery was more than procedurally precise. Dr. Young has a special eye & feel that goes beyond skill. If I elect to seek any further modifications I will definitely return to Dr. Young & his fine staff. I am deeply grateful to everyone at Palmetto Plastic Surgery for their contribution to my care & success.

Dr. Young's staff is caring, professional and courteous

I wanted to do some sculpting and "tweak" a few areas of my body. I chose Dr. Young's practice based on recommendations and reputation. I had the Cool Sculpting procedure on several areas of my body to define them. At 10 weeks, I can see a considerable difference in the treated areas - they are smoother, the skin is tighter and there is less "me" in the affected areas. My waistline has decreased and I've lost eight pounds in the interim as well. Dr. Young's staff is caring, professional and courteous. Even with a non-evasive procedure, his staff has called multiple times to check on my well-being. I will definitely return to Dr. Young's office and am happy to make recommendations to my friends!

The procedure was easy and painless

I underwent the new CoolSculpting procedure. I had a 3-hour treatment. The staff was wonderful. The procedure was easy and painless. It's been about 3 weeks since my treatment and I can already see significant tightening of the treated area. I will definitely be back for other services.
