5 out of 5 stars Botox

Family and School Reunion Envy - Coral Gables, FL

I have used Dr. Martin for several differant procedures over many years and have always been extremely satisified. I was familiar with his educational background and experiance, so I felt confident in my descion to start treatment with him. Also, he was recommended to me by other medical professionals that I know and trust. He has lectured at several medical conferences. He is always up to date with the latest innovations in cosemtic procedures and I like the fact that he will frankly tell you what he believes will or won't work for you. P.S. His staff is also top notch!

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Upper & Lower Eyelid Surgery with Fat Repositioning, Brow Lift - Coral Gables, FL

I made an appointment for a consultation with Dr. John Martin of Coral Gables, FL. because (1) he is one of the few surgeons with the skills and experience to perform the lower eyelid surgery with fat repositioning and (2) he is board certified in ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgery. During the consultation, I found him to be exceptionally professional, considerate, and patient. He gave me the time I needed to ask questions and then provided answers and information to help me make a decision about whether to have the surgery or not. At no time did he or any of his highly professional and friendly staff pressure me in making a decision. Shortly afterwards, I made the decision to have surgery on the upper and lower eyelids as well as a browlift. As for the surgery, it went very well without any complications. The repositioning of fat from the lower eyelids was perfect for me. His aftercare was unbelievably thorough. My eyes are youthful-looking again and I'm often mistaken as being anywhere from 27 to 37 years-old. I highly recommend that you have a consultation with Dr. John Martin before you have any eyelid or other facial cosmetic or reconstructive surgery. He is absolutely the BEST - honest, highly skilled, thorough, and genuinely caring.

My Best Experience - Coral Gables, FL

Dr. John J. Martin is an excellent professional and a great human being. He is one of those Doctors that don't exist anymore. Although he is, in my opinion, one of the best plastic surgeons in South Florida, he is also very humble. He always shows interest for his patients, calls them personally to find out how they are progressing after a procedure. He takes his profession very seriously and he his very responsible. He always ensures his patients are 100% satisfied with their procedures and will periodically see them after the surgery or any other kind of procedure at no cost to the patient until he feels the patient is completely pleased with the surgery or any other procedure results. Dr. John J. Martin is in my opinion is the best cosmetic surgeon in South Forida.

Dr. John Martin is the Best! - Coral Gables, FL

Dr. John Martin is undoubtably, the best facial plastic surgeon anywhere. His professionalism, easy going personality and conservative approach won me over. Although he is extremely busy and very popular, I have never waited more than a few minutes. His staff is friendly and helpful. When Dr. Martin enters the treatment room,I always feel his 100% focus and attention on me. There is friendly conversation , discussion of the procedure and fantastic results. He is conservative and will always deliver natural looking results. You will never feel pushed into anything. I have been using him as my plastic surgeon for over 12 years and have done a variety of treatments and trust him implicitly. A woman's best friend is her plastic surgeon... And he is that!....If you want to fight the aging process and achieve natural looking results with the most qualified facial plastic surgeon in town, then Dr. Martin is the one! After this review, I might have trouble getting my next appointment.

Excellent Procedure - Service and Results - Coral Gables, FL

I have been going to Dr. Martin for 15 + years, plus provided many referrals of friends and family to him, who have all been extremely pleased with their results. John has performed several procedures on me over the years with exceptional results.

5 out of 5 stars Eye Bags Treatment

67 Y/o Lawyer with Baggy Eyes That Made Me Look Much Older and Tired - Coral Gables, FL

A friend of mine recommended Dr. Martin for my cosmetic surgery. Initially, I was reluctant to travel from Boston to Florida, but I spoke with Dr. Martin on the phone and we exchanged some emails ... and I was convinced that his credentials and training were outstanding and justified the trip to Florida for the procedure. Dr. Martin is very confident and his skills are first-rate as far as I'm concerned. I'm really happy with the outcome and the results are even better than I'd hoped for.
