5 out of 5 stars Facelift Revision

Simply the BEST.

In 2012 I went to Dr. Marten to repair a botched facelift by a doctor in New York City. It was a challenging situation and Dr. Marten was more than up for the task. To put it simply, he is simply THE BEST. People are continually awed today by my age. I look at least 15 years younger - but more importantly - everyone is confused because they can in NO WAY tell that I've had surgery at all. Not...

Dr. Marten was great!

I'm a year post-op and my facelift turned out great. Dr. Marten is a very nice, warm, and caring person and his staff was great. I had a facelift, temporal lift, fat transfer, a peel below my eyes, upper eyelids evened, and my earlobe reduction. My results were great and I'm so happy I did it!

Unfortunately not worth it :(

I have been waiting for a miracle for a looooong time that would make me glad that I had this operation with Timothy. When doctor does not follow patients will and what was agreed to have done, it is not nice. Dr Timothy Marten did not do fat injections on my face but what he did was that he liposuctioned fat out from my lips and other parts. That was not agreed at all. I have some major...

My facelift was a flop

Unfortunately I thought he is one of the best of the best because of all the good reviews. Now I know the truth at least from my part. My procedure was quite simple and he still could not deliver what we agreed. My face is now sad looking and flat. Looks like he did not do a proper lift but somehow pulled my skin to sides. Maybe he just had a bad day when I had the operation because he seems...

Getting a Neck Lift, Early Maintenance Face Lift and Temple Lift with Fat Transfer!!

Very excited and nervous to be getting my face done this summer. I hate my neck, which has aged a lot in the last couple years and how the corners of my mouth are going down, early jowling blech! One side of my face looks older than the other side, too. No review yet, as I'm going in at the end of June. Nervous of the outcome, and how I will feel after! I'm an theater actress, I sing and...

I Knew I Wanted to Find the Best Because I Was Worth It - San Francisco, CA

Flew to many cities and interviewed the top plastic surgeons I had a wonderful experience with the office staff from the very beginning. I loved how high tech and spotlessly clean everything was, knowing that Dr.Marten would be operating on me here. I am 56 years old and had a facelift with fat injections 8 years ago. There is not a day that goes by that my husband doesn't tell me how beautiful I look. I traveled and interviewed many plastic surgeons, Dr.Marten had a gentle and kind way about him from the very beginning. Dr. Marten showed me pictures of his before and after surgeries and I was convinced from that moment he was the best. I would not hesitate if you love yourself and want only the best go see Dr. marten.

Facelift, Necklift and Fat Rejuvenated Me! - San Francisco, CA

I presented myself to Dr. Timothy Marten earlier this year - after doing a LOT of research to find a highly-regarded surgeon who did both facial surgery and fat injections. I chose Dr. Marten only after a rigorous search process for a surgeon who did both lower facelift AND fat injections. Talking to his patients and seeing many before and after shots of other patients convinced me that my own issues would be addressed in a superior fashion. I was very impressed meeting Dr. Marten by the time he spent to discuss his technique for the procedures he recommended for me. He agreed that my jawline needed definition, but he also suggested other procedures to complete the rejuvenation and give me the best possible result. I spoke with several of Dr. Marten's patients, saw their before and afters, and took the plunge!

Fat PLUS Facelift Is the Key to Rejuvenation - San Francisco, CA

I had researched surgeons renowned for fat plus facelift and Dr. Marten's name kept coming up. I talked to several of his patients, saw their results, and had my consultation. The time, care, information and advice Dr. Marten provided sold me on him right there. He is a recognized leader in the technique of combining fat injections plus doing exquisite facial surgery like the SMAS lift I had done. His incisions are nearly all faded in just 6 weeks, and I have had no issues with the fat so far: no uneven swelling or asymmetry either. I would not hesitate to return to Dr. Marten for touch-ups or future work. I highly recommend him for those seeking a natural-looking and even beautified result.
