Dr. m was amazing. He spent a lot of time with me and answered all my questions during my consultation. My results were awesome! I feel like a new women. His nursing and office staff made me feel like a friend. They all took such great care of me. I would recommend Dr. M to all of my friends.

5 out of 5 stars Liposculpture

Amazing - Del Mar, CA

I've never spent much time on myself. I have always taken care of everyone else in my life. I decided it was time for me. Dr. M is so easy to talk to, his staff is understanding and so helpful. He spoke honestly to me about the procedures and helped me make the right choices. I am a new me now, I feel good about myself. Without the confidence I felt in Dr. M I could have never had plastic surgery and would never received such amazing results!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Best Plastic Surgeon in San Diego! - Del Mar, CA

After spending a couple weeks researching different plastic surgeons and talking to my girlfriends, I went to see Dr. M for a breast augmentation consultation. After meeting him and his staff, I knew that I had found my doctor. He was professional, comfortable to talk to and took time to listen to my desires and concerns. My breasts look amazing and I would highly recommend anyone to go to him. Dr M and his staff are first class all the way!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision


Dr Marin is the Tits! (no pun intended) ;) Honestly though, I don't write a ton of reviews which is terrible since I absolutely read them when searching for just about anything... I had gone in for a consultation with Dr Marin a couple years back to see about fixing a previous breast augmentation. I really loved how he explained everything, talked to me like I wasn't an idiot, and was very...

Dr. Marin is the BEST of the BEST! After doing months and months of online research I came across his countless 5 Star reviews and photos of his impeccable work and I knew I had to schedule a consultation right away.

forever grateful and extremely happy!

Dr. Marin's hands were kissed by God! He is hands down the best plastic surgeon out there. I'm lucky that I am a San Diego native and he is here, but without hesitation I would hop on a plane from anywhere in the world to have this man perform my Breast Lift and Breast Augmentation procedures.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Outstanding Surgeon and Staff !

Dr. Marin and his staff were absolutely amazing. A lot to be said about a doctor and staff that take the extra time to make you feel like more than just a number. Dr. Marin himself is a very well educated man that is an expert in every service he has to offer. It is very evident that he does not cut any corners with his attention to detail perspective. He truly wants the best results for each...

I love Dr. Marin he is amazing!!!

Getting a breast augmentation isn't easy, but Dr. Marin makes it all so smooth!! I am extremely pleased with my results & love how amazing his work is! When a friend referred me to him, it didn't take me long to realize what a genius he is by taking a look at his site! I quickly emailed his office & planned it a month ahead which fell on a date of late December. I gave myself a month...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

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

I can't say enough amazing things about Dr. Marin and his incredible staff. I had a consultation at a different place a year prior and thought it went well until I met Dr. Marin and was completely blown away! They care so much and I felt so comfortable and confident. There is no other place I will ever go for any cosmetic surgeries! Best of the best!

5 out of 5 stars Facelift Revision

Mini Facelift, Facelift Re Tightening Plus Scar Revision

Dr Marin and with staff are simply the best. After having my tummy tuck 2 months ago I was back for my facelift revision surgery now. I can not express enough how comfortable I was through the complete process of both procedures. He takes his time and gives you all the time you need. He answers every question. He goes over everything in fine detail. His staff is like family. They are all kind and welcoming. More important they are the best at what they do. I feel very lucky to have found Dr Marin. He changed my life after my tummy tuck. He's is so talented. Brilliant!!
