I’ve been a client of Dr. M since 2004 (age 40). I receive facial mole removal and Juverderm injection treatments. During each visit, Dr. M administered treatment with excellent bedside manners, responsive professionalism, and a precise level of skill and knowledge. I am so satisfied with Dr. Mabries’ cosmetic services that I travel from Indiana to California to receive his services. I have recommended my mother who is also extremely satisfied with Dr. M’s services.

Dr. Mabrie took the time to answer all of my questions and followed up with me many times after surgery. When I went in for my initial consultation he was very thorough in showing me what a chin implant looks like and how it would be placed. After taking the "before" pics, we looked over them and he showed me what he could do during surgery using a program to simulate the results. His staff are wonderful (Christa is the best) and very efficient. I am beyond thrilled with the results. My jawline is stronger and the beginnings of what I would call a "turkey gobbler" is gone!

The reason I chose this doctor is because he is not only double board certified, but he loves, doing chin augmentation, and its one of his specialties among other things. My experience was awesome, he is very down to earth, very very knowledgeable. Has an amazing staff, answered all my questions. Took his time with me, explaining every detail. He made me feel very comfy. Couldnt be more thankful!!!

I was hesitant at first, but Dr. M was SO thorough and patient in answering all my questions and concerns. I had a non-surgical rhinoplasty done and Dr. M was very careful in each step of the process to make sure everything was done exactly how I wanted it. Turned out great! Excellent Doctor and staff!! Highly recommended!

I have shopped sought opinions from a handful of surgeons, seeking their professional opinions on various procedures, from rhinoplasty to botox. I ended up choosing Dr. M for restylane filler. He takes the time to really explain the pros and cons, and he sets realistic expectations. I am completely satisfied with my results and have already booked my next appointment with him. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to my friends and family.
Very Kind, Knowledgeable, Informative Doctor...results Alright but Was Expecting More for the Cost. - San Francisco, CA

This was my very first time having any sort of fillers or any cosmetic procedure done, so I don't have any other doctor to "compare" to...but I would say that overall Dr M. has one of the best bedside manners I've ever seen. I was VERY anxious and excited to have the fillers done in my cheeks and under eye area. My results were just not quite as noticeable as I expected for the cost. My issue with the payment process is that there is a $150 consultation fee which is suppose to go towards the first treatment if you have it done the same day as your consultation. The staff forgot to credit me this fee with my total, and instead of crediting by bank account the money I overpaid, I was given a credit at the office to use at a later date.

Dr. M is a great doctor. He makes you look amazing while at the same time looking like you got absolutely nothing done at all. No one will notice that you got work done, they will however notice how fantastic you look.

DR. M was willing to discuss all options available to me. He's a great doctor.

He did radiesse injection for me last year and I was very happy with the result.

He's not pushy, makes you feel comfortable and explains all the options and listens to your concerns, and is willing to take the time so that you're satisfied with your results.

He works conservatively, starting with a little bit and then adding more if necessary. He also gave me a free try for botox and I loved it! I got one syringe of perlane for around 700 and the second syringe for 400.

Dr. M made me feel very comfortable. He was happy to give me all the information I needed and I really felt like I could trust him and his recommendations for my procedure. He helped me have realistic expectations about results and recovery. The computer images were especially helpful for deciding which procedures to get. I am very happy with my result, it looks great and very natural.

I would definitely recommend Dr. M to anyone interested in improving their facial appearance.

He has a great eye for what your face needs. I initially came in for plastic surgery but instead he recommended dermal fillers. I have been doing them for over a year now and won't be able to go out them.

Dr. M has a wonderful bedside manner and makes patients feel really good about themselves. We refer our clients to him often and they always come back with positive experiences. In fact, he holds a lot of our beauty secrets as well!

To put it simply, Dr. M is an artist. He has the artist's eye and the deft skill to bring out the best in your features. He makes me look fresh and natural (and years younger) as if I returned from the best spa vacation.

I did my research prior to considering the actual rhinoplasty and I'm glad I did. Non-surgical rhino is so much more worth the down time. Dr. M will talk you through the process, and you can see the results that second. If a touch up is needed, you can fill until you are perfectly content with the shape and size. Great doctor and staff! Highly recommend!

Dr. M makes you feel comfortable from the start, takes his time with you and never does too much. He is an artist.

Dr. M did a great job on my othoplasty. He’s a very experienced detail-oriented surgeon. My ears look so much better and very natural. I would recommend him to anyone considering this procedure.

Dr. M is very skilled and up on all the latest techniques. He listens carefully to my concerns and requests and has consistantly performed to my satisfaction. Occasionally he will suggest something I hadn't even thought of and I really appreciate it.

I was very nervous about my procedures because other members of my family have had bad injections that have really disturbed their faces. Also, I know that the injections cost more with a plastic surgeon than a dermatologist, which I wasn't sure how to justify at first. I have to tell you, the artistry with which I got my fillers put in is not available with any derm that I know of. This man is an artist of the face and knows it inside and out, and that makes a huge difference. I look so rested it's like I never had children or 8 years of disturbed sleep from them! I love this. Also, he evened out my face, this never would have occurred to me, but man I look prettier!

I've been a patient of Dr. M's since Sept. 2010. I'm 28 years old, and already starting to see the signs of aging. I came in for a consultation to find out what he can do to treat the wrinkles that have formed above my eyebrows. He listened to my concerns, and told me about Botox, and omg - it's done wonders! I love it :D I love it so much that I brought my mom in to have the same treatment. We are both so pleased with our treatments. Thank you, Dr. M!!

Since this was my first plastic surgery, I wanted someone with strong credentials, experience, and confidence. His consultations were polite, professional, and as thorough as I could ask for.
A Doctor Who is Friendly, Patient, Willing to Listen, Open to Suggestions, Caring and Especially Skillful - San Francisco, CA
Posted by Miguel Corne
I moved to SF in 2004. I used to live in the midwest where I had a plastic surgeon that I trusted a lot. So i was very concerned about finding the best doctor in the city. After doing some research I decided to go see Dr. M. First impressions are really important to me, so when I was introduced to him I noticed right away he was friendly, pleasant and especially willing to listen and open to suggestions. After my first appointment, I felt so comfortable with him that I didn't hesitate to schedule some botox and filler injections. Those procedures went so well, no bruissing or swelling and the results were amazing! really natural. And believe me, I am a perfectionist so I mean it when i say AMAZING AND NATURAL. After a couple of months I expressed to Dr Mabrie that maybe a chin enhancement would make my face look better. He agreed with me. He explained me the risks and told me what my expectations from surgery should be. A few weeks after that meeting I had a chin implant..... the results were incredible. After that procedure I realized Dr. Mabrie was just the best doctor I could've ever found. A doctor who is friendly, patient, willing to listen, open to suggestions, caring and especially skillful and well prepared at what he does. At this point I would never see any other plastic surgeon. If you are new at this or want to change doctors, give Dr. Mabrie a chance, you will not be dissapointed! I also need to give 5 stars to his staff, over the past 6 yrs my experience with them has been awesome. The current staff, Olivia and Jeffrey are the best. Really friendly and willing to accomodate the patients' needs at all times. The results I obtain everytime I visit Dr. M meet all my exectations. I hve never been dissapointed.

Dr. Mhas a excellent eye for beauty. He is also on the conservative side and does not like to inject you excessively. I was very happy with my Perlane injections but wanted a tad bit more for my parentheses. He told me he didn't feel I needed it, but with my insistence, he complied. There was extra left over which he put into my lower lip. My lips look so much better and VERY natural! I would recommend him to anyone. I wish I seen him years ago.

I would recommend Dr. Mabrie to anyone who is struggling with under eye hollows. I am going back to the Doctor soon.

Dr. M listens carefully to your requests and makes educated suggestions that will help you to look your very best.
Posted by sallyalice
Dr M is the first Doctor I have ever been to for anything. I am 30 and I went to him to talk about botox and lip fillers. He took a picture of me and noted that I should first perhaps consider under eye fillers instead of lip filler as this would make me look more youthful. He was completely right! I've had botox and am booked for undereye fillers next month and I cannot wait.
Posted by anonymousgirl89
Google and Realself. So I did my research and read about how Dr Mabrie was not only one of best surgeons when it comes to injecting fillers but also specializes in non-surgical rhinoplasty. It was really hard to resist to make that appointment and I'm glad I did. He was very courteous with me and went over a brief explanation on what would be best for my face. I didn't even have to say or ask much because he seemed to be a mind reader.
Posted by LeeAO
By reading all of his responses to questions on Real Self and reading reviews online from current clients besides watching his videos using the cannula technique for the tear trough area. Dr. Mabrie is amazing. He has such an eye for what looks natural, in proportion and attractive in a face.
Posted by kmom3
I chose Dr. M based on online reviews. I think that's all I'm going to need. Dr. Mabrie has been a great doctor. I couldn't find anyone else willing to do a non-surgical chin aug and Dr. Mabrie does it so well that I don't mind having only one local choice for it! He's also quick to respond to e-mails. Thanks again, Dr. Mabrie!
