Essie Kueberuwa Yates, MD

Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon

Dr. Essie Kueberuwa Yates is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery; she focuses exclusively on adult cosmetic and reconstructive procedures of the face, breast, and body. She is aligned with the aesthetics of the female face and body and works closely with her patients to equip them with the knowledge and education to make informed choices about their treatment. 

Trained in the UK and United States, Dr. Yates completed a bachelor of science with honors and medical school at the extremely prestigious London-based university, Imperial College. Upon completion of medical school, she was appointed as a research fellow at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, where she conducted laboratory-based plastic surgery research.

After completing one year as an intern (house officer) at St. Mary's Hospital in London, UK, she obtained her membership to the Royal College of Surgeons (MRCS). She then went on to complete a six-year integrated plastic surgery residency at the University of Chicago, one of the nation’s premier medical centers.

While undergoing her surgical training, Dr. Yates had the opportunity to participate in almost 2500 plastic surgery procedures under the mentorship and guidance of many leaders in the field. She learned cutting-edge techniques for perforator microsurgical breast reconstruction, which allows women to recreate a breast without having a prosthetic implant or sacrificing major muscles. Dr. Yates also specializes in other functional and aesthetic breast procedures such as breast mastopexy (lift), breast augmentation, breast reduction, and complex revision procedures.

Being a woman herself, as well as being a former model, Dr. Yates has the highest standards for beauty and aesthetics as well as compassion and understanding of the needs of her female patients.
