5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
Dr Macias was great! He listened to all my concerns and fears. He anticipated my needs and because of that the results are amazing. He checked in on me regularly and genuinely cared about my outcome. I would absolutely recommend him!
5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
Pros: Great listener, skillful surgeon, able to tackle highly complex cases, conducts ongoing research & is at the forefront of his field. Cons: too humble for his own good
5 out of 5 stars Liposuction
Dr. Macias COMPLETELY improved my body with liposuction. He was aggressive and removed all the fat that we discussed, but didn't over promise and let me know he can only remove 5 liters in one procedure (by law). He created the most perfect curves through my waist and hips. I am down three pant sizes! I look forward to going to Dr. Macias for future procedures. He is a true artist!
5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction
Dr. Macias has great bedside manner among many talents. But I appreciated his level of professionalism while being jovial which definitely put me at ease. The results of his artistry are exceptional.
5 out of 5 stars Brazilian Butt Lift
Dr. Macias is a true artist to say the least! I was looking back at old photos of me from high school and was thinking "WOW, I would love to have the body I did then! (Thin with a perfect bubble butt), but with age I noticed my butt wasn't as pronounced anymore and I had some stubborn fat in my back, love handles and stomach, which didn't seem to want to go away with all the exercise I do. I...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
I flew in from AZ to get Breast Aug with Dr. Macias in August. Before my surgery I had very deflated, sad & asymmetrical boobs after nursing 3 kids. Very torn about what size to go with, I am so happy I listened to his expertise. We spent a long time talking about my wants & needs, as well as reviewing pics & using the Vectra 3D Imaging system. He is a true artist that will give you a very...
5 out of 5 stars Liposuction
Dr. Luic Macias was fantastic. Spent a ton of time with me consulting / advising. When it came to the procedure, I was put at ease by the amount of care his staff invested with me. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to have a procedure sone.
5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
Marina Plastic Surgery Center, MDR California Really really great facility. Im on week 4 and even though I know there is swelling I am happy with my progress thus far. It was so much easier than what I had imagined and I hope the progress and any revisions needed are as simple
5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants
Like many of the other women on here, I’m a woman who has wanted breasts since high school. Even though I knew my mom had a small chest, I was hoping that my dad’s side would provide me with some more “oomph.” Unfortunately, it did not. Puberty had come and gone and I still had itty bitties. I’ve always wanted a chest that would balance out my shape, but was terrified of surgery. What if s...
