"My Gratifying Experience with Dr. Natan Yaker, Plano, TX - I'm 50 years young and for all of my life, I've lived with huge sagging unattractive breast, that I was ashamed of. I did nothing to cause this, but be born with bad genes. I struggled for many years considering a breast reduction and breast lifts. I had previously had a tummy tuck over 10 years ago with another surgeon, where my results were less than desirable. So, I was hesitant and afraid of having a similar experience. I discussed my fears and concerns with my close friend RJ. She was a great source to talk to because a few years ago she had breasts implants and she was ecstatic with her results. So after many discussions with RJ, I finally took her advice and called her surgeon Dr. Yaker. I could tell you, I had the surgery, because the large size of my breasts hurt my neck and my back, but the simple truth is, I wanted to look better. I knew if I looked better, I'd feel better about myself. From my first phone conversation with his staff, I felt at ease and comfortable. His staff was pleasant and efficient, booking my consultation appointment immediately. Once at my consultation, I was greeted by Sheri at the front desk. She was pleasant and eager to assist me with my patient forms. Within minutes I was in Dr. Yaker's office. He was very kind and patient, but more than that, he listened to what I wanted. Then he discussed my expectations and gave me honest feedback. I even told him about my tummy tuck and I wanted to have another because I was unsatisfied with the first one. He and his nurse, Kristen looked over and viewed my tummy tuck incisions, and the first thing he said was, "Well, you don't need another tummy tuck, maybe some liposuction, but that would be all you'd need in this area". I was shocked and relieved because my original surgeon advised me I would need a second tummy tuck. Dr. Yaker could have been like most surgeons and simply took my money for a surgery I didn't truly need and penciled me in, but instead he was honest. There was no greed or selfish intent behind his consult. That's the type of surgeon you want. An honest one. He is the best. His bedside manner is impeccable. I love him and his staff. So, I had a breast reduction in October 2019, that Dr. Yaker performed.I healed in about 3 to 4 months and I've been healthy and happy every since. I highly recommend Dr. Yaker in Plano. He's awesome. Jackie J."- J. / RealSelf / Sep 08, 2020

"This Has Been a Uniquely Amazing Experience! - I started to consider this surgery about 10 years ago. I am a 42 year old mother of four. I have had health issues for over 20 years. CFS and Hypothyroidism are just two of the illnesses that I have. I felt like I wore my illness on my face. With my brow line being so low, and only getting worse with age, I knew that I needed to take this step. Despite doing my best to look put together, I was always told that I looked so tired. The truth is I always feel tired. I just don’t want everyone to know it, lol. That is why I worked so hard to try to cover it up with makeup and products....which wasn’t working. I started to do research about two years before my surgery. I knew that I wanted a natural look. I wanted to look like me, just not so exhausted. I read about the procedure, complications, cost, everything! I found Dr. Yaker and did more research on his education, technique, and experience. I was immediately convinced that he was the only one that I would trust. The first visit he sat and talked with my husband and I. He understood exactly, and more importantly why I felt the way I did about my exhausted appearance. He knew what I needed and showed us beautiful before and after pictures of previous patients. He patiently and thoroughly went through the whole process with us. His staff was always kind and helpful. After the surgery he and his staff displayed perfect bedside manner. They were always reassuring and helpful. I even had phone calls to check up on me between visits. I will always be grateful for this experience that has truly made a huge difference to me. Dr. Yaker has such skill that the end result is so natural but makes such a phenomenal difference. He understands that I wanted this procedure, not just to look better, but more importantly to feel better. There are many illness that ones have to deal with. Many of them do not have a cure. Surgeries and procedures that Dr. Yaker so skillfully performs eases living with such illnesses. I hope that he and his staff come to know how appreciative we are of their work."- Z. / RealSelf / May 26, 2020
"Dr. Yaker is an excellent doctor; I’m extremely happy with my procedure! I waited a long time to have a lip lift because I wanted to find someone who had experience with this procedure. He is very exact with his work. I am so happy I had this procedure done."- L. / RealSelf / Mar 10, 2020
"I loved my experience with this place! Can’t believe how my skin looks after just one treatment!"- L.G. / Google / Feb 05, 2020
Eyelash Extension Procedure
Prior to your eyelash extensions consultation and appointment, you should arrive at our facility without any makeup on and minimal skin care. During the appointment, your Surface Skin Spa aesthetician will start to apply the upper eyelash extensions to create the desired look that was talked about in your consultation. Using a medical-grade adhesive, your aesthetician will carefully isolate a single natural eyelash and then apply an eyelash extension to the base of the natural lash. In most cases, a full set of lashes may take about 2 – 3 hours to complete, but a touch-up appointment typically lasts less than one hour.
What to Expect
You should avoid washing your eyes or showering, as well as steam or sweating, for at least 24 hours after your lashes are applied. It is important to be gentle when you have eyelash extensions, and you should refrain from rubbing your eyes, pulling on your lashes, or using an eyelash curler. Additionally, you should not use oil-based, wax, cream, or waterproof cosmetics on and around your eyes, and only use mascara that is safe for extensions. As a way to properly preserve your eyelash extensions, you should carefully clean your eyelashes with an oil-free makeup remover. If cared for properly, extensions can last around 2 – 4 weeks before a touch-up appointment may be necessary.

Eyelash Extension FAQs
What If I have Allergies and Sensitivities?
Prior to your initial eyelash extension appointment, you should discuss with your aesthetician about doing a patch test within 24 hours of your treatment. This is a great way to make sure you are not allergic or sensitive to any of the products used in eyelash extensions. Though they are not mandatory, patch tests are recommended for any individuals who may have a history of allergies or eye sensitivities.
Any Extension Tips?
In order to maintain and care for your extensions, we recommend the use of an oil-free makeup remover on a cotton Q-tips to clean your eyes and remove makeup. Additionally, you should be careful in the shower in order to avoid spraying your eyes directly with water. A headband can also be helpful to keep sweat out of your extensions when you are working out. It is also suggested to use a primer following a shower in order to put the lashes back into a straight position.
Will This Ruin My Lashes?
A number of patients may be concerned that eyelash extensions may ruin or have a negative effect on their natural lashes. However, this is only the case if proper care of the extensions is not taken. It is also important that extensions be applied and removed by a trained, licensed, and certified eyelash extension specialist in order to better preserve your natural lashes. At Surface Skin Spa, we provide safe extension removal to make sure your natural lashes are not damaged.
