5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation - Del Mar, CA

After nursing 3 children my breast were deflated!

5 out of 5 stars Liposculpture

Amazing - Del Mar, CA

After having kids there was only so much I could do get my body back. I wanted to go more drastic (tummy tuck) than Dr. M thought I should, and he was right. He suggested the proper procedures for me and I never felt like I was being sold anything. He's so well educated and so down to earth, it was a very comfortable experience. I had liposculture and a breast lift and I was...

30 Yrs Old, No Kids, 5'2", 112lbs, Fit Yogi, B Cup to D Cup, 445cc Mod Profile Silicone Round - La Jolla, CA

I am officially at 1 week post op. At my original consultation I was pretty set on obtaining silicone, round, moderate plus, 375cc implants. After hours of research on the RealSelf site, I decided to go bigger possibly to 400. I awoke from surgery with 445cc's and a moderate profile! Mind you I started with a small B cup, I am 5'2", 110 lbs and petite overall. However, my doctor has augmented...

5 out of 5 stars Facelift Revision

Mini Facelift, Facelift Re Tightening Plus Scar Revision

Today I revised my mini/full facelift. Today my surgery consisted of having liposuction done to both jowl areas left and right. Tightening to only the left side (do to my face being asymmetrical from my last facelift) Scar revision for a very bad scar with a lot of scar tissue behind my left ear where the anchor scar was. I had a mini face/full lift with S scar and tightening of muscle...

1 Week Post Op - San Diego, CA

I love  Dr.Vincent Marin. He's such a nice guy and a wonderful a doctor. He was my first and last stop shop. Man.. on top of that i think he's hot. I went to see him for 1wk post op. And he showed me how to massage today. Kinda liked it when he massaged for me lol. Still a little uncomfortable when i sleep on my back for too long. And its still swollen but i like the way it looks right...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation


At my pre op appointment I told my doctor that I wanted cleavage and to get that upper pole fullness again that I lost from breastfeeding my child. Dr. told me he would be using 325cc and would try moderate profile and high profile to see which one gave me the look I wanted during surgery and I was okay with that. The day of surgery he took my measurements and went over everything and just...

5 out of 5 stars Brazilian Butt Lift


I could not be more pleased with not only my results but Dr. Marin and his whole staff. My overall experience has been amazing, I would do it all over again! My only regret is not having had the courage to do it sooner. I spent a year pondering on whether or not plastic surgery was for me. A whole year! But finding the right doctor makes all the difference. Thank you Dr. Marin

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck / Liposuction Revision

I have been down a long plastic surgery road over the last year. I had to replace my breast implants do to them being older and one was capsulized. My past PS replaced 460cc saline with 700cc hp silicone. (he thought the old ones were bigger before the surgery) I wish he had at the time of surgery just put in smaller implants knowing that he was wrong about the size. They were way to big for...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

Great Doctor, Great Experience- SO HAPPY W/ Results. Del Mar, CA

I went to 5 different consults before deciding to go with dr marin. all the other doctors told me what oli wanted to hear - that they could work their magic and do withput a lift- when in retrospect, there was no way i couldve been happy with the results if i hadnt gotten a lift with implants. he was very straightforward while also being extremly compassionate and went out of his way to...
