Dr. Asaf Yalif
Dr. Asaf Yalif established a boutique plastic surgery practice in 2010 to provide patients with an unsurpassed level of personal care in an upscale yet comfortable environment. A triple board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Yalif is considered by many to be the area’s best plastic surgeon.

Education & Advanced Training
Dr. Yalif excelled in academics and his accomplishments continued to be recognized during his surgical training. He earned a bachelor’s degree in biology at Rutgers University and obtained his medical degree at Rutgers’ Robert Wood Johnson Medical School as part of the university’s prestigious combined degree program, one of the few such programs in the country. Dr. Yalif then completed a 5-year general surgery residency at Beth Israel Medical Center, where he served as chief resident and earned several awards for academic achievement and clinical excellence.
After completing 2 years of fellowship training in plastic and reconstructive surgery, where he also served as chief resident at the University of Tennessee in Memphis, Dr. Yalif completed a highly specialized fellowship in hand and upper extremity surgery at State University of New York in Buffalo. He again served as chief resident at SUNY. Throughout his training, his research has been published in several national, peer-reviewed journals.
Contributing to the Community
Dr. Yalif had the distinct honor of being featured as one of “Atlanta’s Top Influencers” in the 2017 edition of the Atlanta travel guide, WhereTraveler. That recognition is reflected throughout the Atlanta area, including the city’s chapter of “The Pink Agenda,” a non-profit organization that promotes breast cancer awareness. As an avid runner, Dr. Yalif competed in the New York City Marathon to raise money for the group and was honored at its gala for his commitment.
Dr. Yalif devotes much of his time to help women understand their breast reconstruction options following lumpectomies or mastectomies. Dr. Yalif works on the Wellstar North Fulton Hospital’s STAT Breast Cancer Care Team, seeing breast cancer patients weekly. He says helping breast cancer patients—and volunteering in other ways—is a fundamental part of his practice.
“Giving back to the community is very important to the heart and soul of Y Plastic Surgery,” says Dr. Yalif. “We always want to educate, enrich, and help the best that we can. Through running, raising funds, and engaging the community, we can bring about great change.”
