5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
The surgical outcome was better than my expectations! I was especially thrilled that he didn't use drains. All of my other friends having the same procedure with different doctors had drains and they really seemed to slow them down! The healing procedure was much faster than I anticipated. I was walking several miles within a few days!
5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
After getting in an accident as a kid, I sustained 3 facial fractures, and my nose literally slanted right. I came to Dr Macias I. The hopes of a straight nose, but he realized that there was additional problems in my sinuses and chin. He fixed all 3 in July. I'm waiting to post pics until the swelling is a totally gone, but I have to say that I feel like an absolute work of art after so many...
5 out of 5 stars Liposuction
I've been super fit my entire life and had a slamming body...up until about 5 years ago. Working in a mentally and emotionally abusive work environment + working on Masters degree full time + being lonely = weight gain. Despite my best efforts, the bulges will not go away, and I'm sick and tired of being forced to wear spanx all-the-time!! I'm tired of waiting to look the way I am supposed to...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction
Dr. Macias and his staff are wondeful. The process from beginning to end was not only professional but fun. Expectaions were layed out clearly and reasonably. This review limits the procesure discussed but I actually had breast reduction, tummy tuck, arms and some lypo.. My life is new and improved. Thank u
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
I recently had a procedure done at Marina Plastic Surgery center. I specifically had Liposuction performed on my abdomen and flanks. I am two weeks post recovery and I am very pleased with the results thus far. The doctor who performed the procedure was Dr. Macias and I would highly recommend him for anyone looking to get this handled in a quick, efficient and correct fashion. He is very...
5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
I recently had a full tummy tuck and breast lift and am at day 24!!! The best decision of my life by far. I had lost over 150 lbs and worked out daily 1-2 hours a day and could never appreciate the body I had worked for because of all the skin that would hang on me. August 16th I went in under Dr. Macias in MDR, CA and I can report zero issues at this time. Day 4-6 I was off pain meds...
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...
5 out of 5 stars Cellfina
I had Cellfina 3 weeks ago. The Marina Plastic Surgery office is very clean and nurses and staff are all friendly and attentive. The Cellfina procedure took 30 minutes to complete. I experienced minimal discomfort during the procedure and experienced little to no pain after the procedure. The area that was treated is improving everyday.
