Vaser High Def Lipo Improved Results from Previous Lipo - Sacramento

I just had Vaser High Definition Lipo on my torso, front and back, in August 2009. I had previously had traditional lipo on the same area done in 2004, but was left with a ropey patch across my abs and banana rolls in back that looked unchanged. My procedure lasted just under 4 hours, during... READ MORE

MixTo Treatment Great, but Unplanned Disaster Happened

I am 54, have taken excellent care of my skin since I was in my mid-20s - but even so, I had developed fine crinkly lines, more noticeable wrinkles, and even puckery skin in the areas around my mouth, under my eyes, the eyelids, and tops of cheeks. My PS had been telling me about MixTo for... READ MORE

Fat PLUS Facelift Is the Key to Rejuvenation - San Francisco, CA

I am 57, female, and had just hated my weak jawline and saggy jowls for years! In August 2012, I went to Dr. Timothy Marten, SF, and he did a lower facelift, neck lift, upper eyelid bleph, plus fat injections to my face and hands. At just 6 weeks out, I can tell I'm going to LOVE the look... READ MORE

Facelift, Necklift and Fat Rejuvenated Me! - San Francisco, CA

I am 57, female, and had just hated my jowls and jawline for so many years! While I keep slim and trim overall, and have had previous surgeries to address other areas, I felt that I still looked older and more tired than I felt.  In mid-August 2012, Dr. Marten did a lower SMAS lift,... READ MORE

Juvey Filler Erased Annoying Marionette Lines and Frowning Mouth - Sacramento, CA

I had dragged my feet for more than FOUR years in getting any more filler in my face. I'd had several rounds of Juvey Ultra and botox placed under my eyes and in the N/L folds by my mouth done by a previous surgeon. My last treatment done by that doctor was in 2010, just before I had facial... READ MORE

You know, to play devil's advocate, I wonder if it was the lipo or the simple process of aging, sagging skin? It seems that as skin thins and sags, all the imperfections below the surface are magnified. I *never* had this... READ COMMENT

Totally agree!!! In my dreams, a simple triangle of skin measuring no more than 3" x 1.5" would be excised from the area towards the back of my armpit - just where it meets the BACK of my arm, if you can picture that. Pinching that area... READ COMMENT

GOOD LUCK on the consultation tomorrow! Wow, I am eager to know what your surgeon recommends. I have the absolutely *identical* looking upper arms!! I'm 5'8" and just 130 lbs; plus I work out at the gym 4x/wk and do arm exercises nearly... READ COMMENT

If you have a slot reserved for the consultation, that's WAY better than doing a Skype anyway. I think follow-up questions could be done via phone, email or Skype, but the main hour-long consultation is much more one-on-one, with your... READ COMMENT

Yes! I noticed that my skin just GLOWS post-fat injections. At the same time, tho, I started using a Clarisonic face brush with their cucumber cream soap. So, I never knew which of the two made the difference - but Dr. Marten had... READ COMMENT
