About the Practice

Dr. Yaremchuk imparts facial balance – the ideal facial blueprint – using anthropometric measurements, science, elements of nature and rational thought. He uses proportion of parts and elements of symmetry to guide his work with each individual patient. With this repertoire, imperfect features or faces can be reconstructed or rejuvenated to make a balanced whole.
