Kyle Yamamoto, M.D.

testimonials/personal stories

For years I suffered with the unsightly effects of Rosacea -- redness, veins, and finally rhinophyma. Dr. Yamamoto used a laser to remove the bumps and bulges of my rhinophyma, and the results were terrific. Then Annette did three microneedling treatments which took out much of the redness and gave my old skin a new, youthful glow. “Competent, friendly, and reasonably priced” sums up my experience. I highly recommend Dr. Yamamoto and his staff at Sierra Nevada Cosmetic & Laser Surgery.



I have seen so many providers that provide Botox and injectables and Dr. Yamamoto is the very best! His staff is great as well. They make you feel very welcome and safe!

Life changing! From the moment I made my consult appointment for my rhinoplasty surgery I knew that Dr. Yamamoto was the doctor for me! His team is incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and helpful! Dr. Yamamoto took his time to thoroughly explain the process of the surgery and recovery - giving realistic expectations for each stage. I couldn't be more pleased with the results of my surgery!

Good experience! Patient, caring and dedicated Doctor and exceptional staff. I was pretty nervous coming in but Marta was very understanding and patient with the forms that needed filling out and explaining everything. Tori was also very caring and so gentle taking off bandages after Mohs surgery and with appointments after that. My first meeting with Dr. Yamamoto put me right at ease, as much as I could be! He explained everything and was not rushed at all like most doctor visits elsewhere are, very patient making sure I understood everything and answered all questions. Very professional, very kind, highly recommended.

Great treatment and follow up. The staff is very attentive and made me feel really comfortable. The price is really reasonable as far as Botox goes and although I need more, I couldn't afford a lot and there was absolutely no pressure. I'll definitely be a returning client!

"I have gone to Dr. Yamamoto twice now for cosmetic procedures, both times I have left feeling and looking amazing. My first appointment was just for Botox, I did not feel pressured to do more than necessary and ended up just using Botox on my deep forehead wrinkle lines. It was absolutely painless and within 5 days I could see the changes in texture to my face. Everything looked smooth, my eyebrows had an amazing arch, and the Botox has lasted about 4.5 months. 

The second time I was in to see Dr. Y was for my lip filler. It was a speedy procedure and I left loving my lips. The procedure was easy and I had minimal bruising. I iced throughout the procedure and immediately after which really helped with bruising, swelling and soreness. I love my lips. They look natural and Dr. Y was able to keep the shape of my lips and improve the shape of my Cupid's bow on my top lip by just filling them out. I had this done the beginning of December and my lips still, almost 6 months later, look wonderful and full. I will definitely be going back for future cosmetic facial procedures!"




"Sierra Nevada Cosmetic and Laser Surgery is a warm and friendly office. Dr. Yamamoto is a compassionate Doctor and very approachable. His bedside manner is impeccable. He addressed all of my facial concerns and together we came up with a plan of care for me. His practice administrator is highly knowledgeable regarding insurances, methods of payments, and follow-up care. I would highly recommend anyone who is looking for cosmetic surgery of any kind."




"Thank you, Marta! It was just delightful meeting you and Dr. Yamamoto! I left feeling great, full of hope, and so enjoying that laughter and jokes we shared! Thank you both! I look forward to our next appointment. You are marvelous!"




"Dr. Yamamoto is highly skilled, and he has the most wonderful bedside manner. He has made my face look so amazing and so much younger I am delighted! I hope to see him for many years to come. Furthermore, all of the staff at Sierra Cosmetic are top notch... you really won't find a more kind and capable team. I see Annette for all my esthetician services and she is truly my holy grail for skincare. I'm so happy I found Sierra Cosmetic and I will never go anywhere else!"




"Dr. Yamamoto and his staff are so welcoming; they make every effort to ensure you feel right at home. I felt like Dr. Yamamoto took his time in explaining the procedure and was very caring during it with any pain I might be feeling. The outcome was a success! I feel so confident in Dr. Yamamoto that I referred my daughter to him."

"Dr. Yamamoto is an extremely personable, attentive, and skilled cosmetic surgeon, and he has an amazingly kind and helpful staff. I went to see him for Botox injections for my brow and around my eyes. The results were perfect! The fine lines disappeared, but I still looked like myself--just younger and refreshed! I have recommended him to all of my family and friends. Thank you to everyone at Sierra Cosmetic Surgery--I couldn't be happier!!"



"Dr. Yamamoto is very personable, down to earth, easy to talk to and he is an expert in faces. The office staff is friendly and welcoming and the consultations are FREE!"



 "Dr. Yamamoto is a great doctor, I love the fact that he does all the injections. I would not hesitate to refer him to my friends."

"I had the opportunity to have my hands look a little younger with help from Dr. Yamamoto - they look a LOT younger. Dr. Yamamoto has a relaxed and kind manner and is very talented. His office staff are friendly and welcoming, as is he. I also got some wonderful skincare items that have given rise to compliments from my family. I highly recommend that anyone looking for any kind of hand, neck or facial treatment put Dr. Yamamoto's name on your list of doctors to consider. AND the consultations are free!"

- Bonnie


"Dr. Yamamoto and his staff are highly professional while maintaining a friendly comfortable atmosphere. I felt totally comfortable before, during and after my procedure. Dr. Yamamoto's attention to detail is much appreciated given I'm a perfectionist! He really took the time to discuss options with me. He goes above and beyond to make sure you are happy with the results. My results exceeded my expectations and I will definitely see Dr. Yamamoto again for future procedures. Annette. the esthetician at the office, is also wonderful, very knowledgeable, professional, and makes great recommendation for my skin. She makes sure I'm comfortable throughout the procedure/facial and provides clear instructions for post visit care."

"Amazing results! I can finally wear lipstick and feel confident."

"I am extremely happy with my facial surgery by Dr. Kyle Yamamoto. My experience from the time of the initial consultation before my surgery and during the short recovery after the surgery was very positive with the support of Dr. Yamamoto and his office staff. I was impressed by his confidence and I felt at ease when discussing my procedure with him. My results are amazing and just what I was looking for! I now look and feel refreshed and I often get compliments and am told I look 10 to 15 years younger. I highly recommend Dr. Yamamoto to anyone considering facial surgery."

- JG


“Dr. Yamamoto was very thorough and made me feel comfortable during the injections: Botox, lip filler, and cheek filler.  Friends cannot tell I have had anything done, instead they ask me what I do to keep my skin looking so young.  The best part is that I feel and look at least ten years younger thanks to Dr. Yamamoto’s expertise.”

"I had a great experience with Dr. Yamamoto, I walked out immediately feeling more confident! I highly recommend him, you will feel comfortable from the time you step foot in his office and will be feeling completely satisfied with the results you walk out with. He understands that every patient's desire is unique and will be sure to deliver exactly what you want. I couldn't be happier with Dr. Yamamoto's work. Reno is lucky Dr. Yamamoto started his practice here, as he is one of the only face specialists in the area. Don't make a mistake, see Dr. Yamamoto!"



“Dr. Yamamoto is amazing! He did a fantastic job with my Botox and cheek filler! I have been to other places and nothing compares to the skill level and the attention that I receive under the care of Dr. Yamamoto. He takes the time to explain in detail and the procedure is never rushed. He has a very calming chair-side manner that put me at ease immediately! I intend to see him again for my next procedure. I would never go anywhere else!”

 Annette R.


“Dr. Yamamoto is simply amazing! I was hesitant to get Botox but needed it after years of living by the beach in Florida. He is gentle, calm and very thorough in explaining the process. The needles he uses are so small that no numbing cream is needed. A week after Botox, I am wrinkle free and have received many compliments on how "fresh" looking my skin has been lately. I received my procedure in his office in Atlanta and I am very sad he will be gone to Reno as I don't know if I will find anyone else to replace his expertise.”
