About the H-Art of Plastic Surgery

At the H-Art of Plastic Surgery, we bring out your inner beauty.

Many people would love to change a feature of their face or body that they are insecure about. It is our mission to make their dreams a reality. Dr. Kadesky is a true patient advocate, advising you about the procedures with the best long term safety and effectiveness. He is the first to steer patients away from procedures that carry more risk than benefit or have long term health concerns (like silicone breast implants).

The team helps Dr. Kadesky create true works of art through what Dr. Kadesky calls the H-Art of Plastic Surgery. Dr. Kadesky and his team can put you on the path to feeling great about your face and body! Give us a call to schedule a consultation today and begin the path to a new you.

The H-Art of Plastic Surgery Staff

The Doctor with H-Art: Yale Kadesky M.D.

Lead Surgeon and Owner

Combining his love for art and medicine, Yale Kadesky decided to be a plastic surgeon at the age of ten. His path took him to the world famous Johns Hopkins Medical School, he then trained in general and plastic surgery in Pennsylvania and New York. He also did a fellowship at the University of California Regional Burn Center. A true healer, Dr. Kadesky saves lives and limbs in the Trauma Center and Emergency Department at Palomar Medical Center. “Although I love the artistry of my cosmetic practice, my heart won’t let me turn my back on patients with burns, flesh eating bacteria infections, ulcers from pressure and diabetes, and traumatic wounds”.

Dr. Kadesky says, “I am grateful to offer the people of San Diego County and beyond a wide repertoire of treatments from wrinkle filler material for spot improvements to total Mommy or Daddy Make-overs. I even help obese individuals with my Optavia® Program to arrive at a healthy weight.”

After opening his Escondido practice in 1999, Dr. Kadesky reconstructed burn survivor Allyson Roach and co-founded the Ashleigh R. Roach Memorial Burn Foundation.

Yale is devoted to his three daughters. He loves music, art, food, wine and gardening. He is trying to love going to the gym!”
