5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation - Del Mar, CA

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.

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!

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!

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...

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!!

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

Doctor Marin and his staff has been outstanding. They have been excellent throughout my initial consultation, surgery and post op. I can not express how grateful I am to Dr Marin. His surgical skills have changed my life. I'm 2 weeks post op, already my results are incredible. I had severe deformities in my abdomen due to a bothched surgery from another doctor. I now look amazing and feel confident. I cried because I was so happy with my results. I will now once again wear a bikini. His staff has been very supportive! They keep in touch with me. Listen to me. They have been there for me helping me through the pain everyday, every step of the way. I couldn't ask for a better surgical team!! I was extremely scared and they made me feel calm. I was in pain yet they helped me through it. I only remember good things from my surgery day! This whole experience has been less scary with Dr Marin and his staff by my side.
