Martin J. Carney, MD, FACS

5 out of 5 stars

I'm VERY honest with my reviews which is why 75% are negative on yelp lol. I have been going to Dr Carney for a couple of years getting botox and occasional filler, he is the only person I trust in the area. Over a year ago I had a lower face lift, a bleth upper eyelid and my ears pinned back. I am still happy with the lift it hasn't changed, although now my upper area looks awful! I told... READ MORE

thread lift waste of money - Honolulu, HI

I went to this "Dr" a few years back, I'm still so angry I want to keep warning people especially as he still does threadlifts, which now has been proven as useless and not good for you. PLUS he is NOT certified by the board for plastic surgery like he claims. He wouldn't do anything to correct or pay me anything back after messing me up. READ MORE

dysport waste of money - Fairfax, VA

I travelled 4 hours to his office and waited 40 minutes to have dysport rather than botox as he recommended it. After 2 wks I called back stating there was no change (a tiny bit on side of face but none on forehead) the nurse said dysport doesn't get rid of wrinkles or fade them it just prevents future ones?? seriously? I have had botox before it and it does fade and help the wrinkles and it... READ MORE

DYSPORT - Who Can You Trust? - Manassas, VA

I tried botox last year and the surgeon was fantastic, sadly he was overseas. I came here and had a "Dr Mitch" in VA beach who ended up being a eye Dr and never said he wasn't a cosmetic surgeon (my fault for not triple checking) it didn't work and I lost $$. I tried dysport last week and was told it would show in a few days, I called today to say nothing happened and was told by "Pat" the... READ MORE

awful and disgraceful - Virginia Beach, VA

No numbing cream was given a condescending response when asked. Botox was injected in forehead but not so much in crows feet Mr Hugo commented that much was not needed there, even though I specifically asked for crows feet to be removed. Painful in a couple of locations. I had no noticeable results in 10 days - 14 days returned for a defensive, abusive top up as it never worked that they... READ MORE

Why is it so difficult to explain the difference btwn a Mini lift & a Mid lift? Which tightens muscle/tissue & gets rid of skin?

Does this upper eyelid post op picture look normal? (Photo)

It wasn't 950,000 it was 9,500 READ COMMENT

I had threading and it was a waste of money and me being ill. All REPUTABLE surgeons will acknowledge this. The ONLY way to lift is to have a real face lift whether mini or full. Your face should not have threads sticking out that... READ COMMENT

Thanks, everything is about that much, just trying to figure out lower, mini or mid? Doctors I spoke to in consults all say something different:( Not sure what is the best option for me. You look great though READ COMMENT

Would you mind telling me what you had done? Im trying to get a lift to asap I look awful but I was wondering what cost that much thanks!! READ COMMENT

What bothers me realself, is that doctors like him with a proven record according to other reviews are certified by FACS and all the other boards making people think he is professional? Isn't there somewhere that investigates and... READ COMMENT
