A Captivation for

Facial Aesthetics

Dr. Indeyeva became fascinated with the complex anatomy of the head and neck region early on in her medical school years, which led her to choose Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery residency. During the early years of her residency training, Dr. Indeyeva became interested in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery for its ability to lift spirits and improve patients’ quality of life. As she spent countless hours correcting the disfigurements and loss of function resulting from cancer resections or injuries, she noticed how those patients felt at odds with their appearance. This dissociation affected their interactions with others, as well as their outlook on life in general. As a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Indeyeva aimed to apply her meticulous surgical skills to enhance lives, elevate confidence, and enable her patients to look and feel their best at any age.

“As I pursued further fellowship training focusing on aesthetics, I realized that my specialty could restore the lost sense of self and identity that often accompanies age-related changes. I cherished the deep connection that I established with my patients and began to realize that one of the greatest honors was to be entrusted with one’s face.”

Education & Training

For undergraduate studies, Dr. Indeyeva attended Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA, on an academic scholarship.  She was accepted into Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine through an Early Admission Program in the Honors College.  In medical school, Dr. Indeyeva was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society.  She went on to complete her 5-year residency training in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, then pursued further specialized training (fellowship) in facial plastic in reconstructive surgery.

A Journey To Facial Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics

Dr. Indeyeva became captivated by facial plastic and reconstructive surgery early on during her residency training.  She witnessed many disfigurements and loss of function resulting from cancer or injuries and noticed the way those patients felt at odds with their appearance.  This dissociation affected their interactions with others, as well as their outlook on life in general. Dr. Indeyeva wanted to be able to restore lost function and disfigurement.  Later on, she became aware of how rejuvenating an aging face also gave many people a new chance, new inspiration, and enabled them to put their best self forward into the world.

"While undergoing my training, I became aware of how fragile and unpredictable life can be, as I cared for patients with traumatic injuries and terminal diseases. It helped me gain a better perspective of the things that are truly important and enabled me to gain appreciation for the small blessings in my everyday life. I also learned to handle stressful situations with grace and composure. "

As a facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Indeyeva loves being able to restore the quality of life, confidence, and happiness of her patients.  She has witnessed the positive transformative effect rejuvenation surgery has on many individual lives.  One of the most notable was a patient who had undergone rejuvenation surgery of the face, neck, and eyes. After treatment, she appeared more vibrant, youthful, and rested.  At one of her follow-up appointments, she told Dr. Indeyeva that she finally felt like the person she was seeing in the mirror matched how she felt on the inside. This inspired her to start a wellness journey of weight loss, healthy diet, meditation, and even taking a cross-country trip in an RV.  She felt that her daily routine had become stagnant in the past few years, and taking the years off her appearance motivated her greatly to pursue the life she envisioned for herself.  Stories like this are the reason Dr. Indeyeva chose her field.  She is proud to be a part of such positive life changes in many of her patients’ journeys.

Q & A with Dr. Yula Indeyeva

I was born in Russia, and moved to Richmond, VA at the age of 12.  

I disliked the look of my nose and underwent a rhinoplasty two years ago. I regularly undergo injectable treatments and adhere to a medical-grade skin care regimen to maintain my facial features and delay the onset of aging.

The ability to enhance the quality of life, boost confidence, and inspire the happiness of my patients. I also truly enjoy the process of developing a foundation of trust and camaraderie with my patient population and following them along on their journey in a supportive, nurturing way.

I was unwavering in my goal of becoming a facial plastic surgeon. I think that when you are truly passionate about your goal and profession, the tremendous dedication, energy, and focus required become second nature.   I built a strong support system by surrounding myself with friends, family, and colleagues that are uplifting, encouraging, and inspiring.

I devote my time to training colleagues all over the world on injectables and regenerative medicine therapies as they apply to aesthetic procedures.  I believe it is important to contribute to the advancement of the aesthetic field, and empower other providers to deliver the very best care to their patients. I love spending time outdoors with my husband and two toy poodles (Ruby and Leo), exploring the beautiful Austin hiking trails, biking, golfing, and stand-up paddleboarding.  In the winter, I travel to Colorado for skiing.  I also enjoy cooking, traveling, and reading. My latest venture is taking photography classes to improve my skills in landscape and portrait skills.

One night during my intern year, I was called down to the Emergency Department to evaluate a woman with a facial injury.   She fallen onto a glass table, sustaining a complex, disfiguring laceration to the lip and cheek.  As if this weren’t distressing enough, she had shared that just a few hours prior, she had lost her beloved dog, which added to the emotional trauma she was experiencing.   I remember thinking “If I can just make her injury better, at least one of her agonies will be eliminated”.  As I spent the next couple of hours cleaning the wound, numbing the injured area, and meticulously putting the tissues back together, she shared her grief, pain, her anxiety about the ensuing weeks of healing.  I shared my own experience with losing a pet, and continuously reassured her about the recovery process and optimizing the appearance of her scar. As the pain lessened and the tissues became more aligned, I sensed her apprehension lessening, and the conversation took a more hopeful turn, ending with her sharing her excitement about a new career opportunity and house remodel.  I remember vividly how much I cherished the experience of helping someone not only correct a physical deformity, but also to soothe their anguish.  Facial plastic surgery allows me to interact with patients at their most vulnerable times.  It is the highest honor to be entrusted with one’s face, a source of identity for many.  I treasure the opportunity to genuinely connect with my patients, hold their hand through the recovery process, join in the excitement at their results, and celebrate their enhanced confidence and uplifted spirits.

Moving to the US at the age of 12 was initially difficult.  Adjusting to a different culture, learning in a new language, and forming new friendships at such a pivotal age was challenging.  I was fortunate to connect with incredible classmates, who are my best friends to this day, and very dear to my heart.

  • Kind
  • Dedicated
  • Meticulous

My family were my first and most valuable mentors.  My great-grandmother taught me how to read and cultivated my fascination with science at an early age.  My parents taught me the value of hard work, persistence, and believing in yourself as we immigrated to USA from Russia to start our life from scratch in a brand-new country.  I am incredibly grateful to my family for their unwavering belief in me that propelled me forward during difficult and draining times.  Later in life, I established strong connections with my residency and fellowship mentors, who became remarkable supporters and life-long friends.

I am able to connect to my patients on a personal level, and consider it a joy and a privilege to foster strong, life-long relationships during their aesthetic journey. I treat each patient as if they were a family member, only recommending treatments and procedures that are safe, effective, and fitting for their goals.   I care deeply about the advancement of facial plastic surgery, devoting time to educating other aesthetic providers all over the world.  I believe this keeps me on the forefront of my field, constantly evolving and refining my own techniques. I believe that we should be able to look and feel our best at any age.  My advanced training along with warm, heartfelt, personalized approach to patient care allow me to provide exceptional patient experience and the most natural, beautiful results.
