14/09/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Marten is one of the best Doctors I have seen and one of the best Plastic Surgeons in SF. I had a face and neck lift. Operation went smoothly and I stayed the night at his surgical center being taken care of non-stop. 8 Months since surgery and result are amazing. Office is run perfectly and the staff were always there to help and were very responsive. Dr. Marten spent a great deal of time with me and listed to all my concerns, etc. It was a great experience even though it was surgery...  Respond

06/09/13 5 5 5 5 It has been a little over a year since my facelift, eyes and fat grafting with Marten and I look amazing! The scars are so miniscule that even my dermatologist has a hard time finding them. It took awhile to look normal (3 months)and things are still settling nicely, as he advises it sometimes takes longer than a year for the healing to be 100%. I'm the third of three friends (Marten's angels,lol) to take the leap and get "the works" with Dr. Marten, and the three of us all look 10 + yrs. younger than our age. It seems like each day I look better and better if that's possible. I find it odd that this site lets us rate doctors more than once. If someone is giving updates at 5 months, then 8 months along with negative ratings, isn't this more of a forum than a rating site? Just my two cents. If my experience is any indication, I looked decent at 3 months, good at 6 months and amazing now. It was well worth the wait! Thanks you, Dr. Marten and Staff (who, by the way are great people!)! My only complaint is that he's so busy it's impossible to get a Botox appt!  Respond

26/06/13 4 2 2 2 Dr. Marten performed a facelift that left large, very visible scars. He tells me the same thing that everyone else on this site has heard - it will get better in time. It's been five years, and I've been back to see him a number of times with no resolution. I'm very unhappy with results. I wish I had seen this site and these other comments before I had surgery.  Respond

03/05/13 5 5 5 5 After 3 years of searching for the right plastic surgeon, my own brother, who is a plastic surgeon, recommended Dr. Tim Marten in San Francisco after having attended a seminar given by Dr. Marten on facelift surgery. I have just celebrated my one year anniversary since having face, forehead, neck and eyelid surgery by Dr. Marten. I am very happy with the results. I had told Dr. Marten that my goal was to look refreshed and rested, like I’d had a great night’s sleep. And that’s how I see myself now. There is no indication of surgery and the results are very natural. Dr. Marten is an expert both at precision as well as having an artistic eye. He even balanced my eyebrows one of which had been lower than the other since birth. My husband and I stayed at the Marriott Union Square, next door to Dr. Marten’s office. He has a great bedside manner and even came to our hotel room twice to check up on me. His staff was also very accommodating throughout the entire experience.  Respond

13/02/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Marten is a true Artist! He pays attention to every detail and the results are amazing... He is kind, attentive, understanding, and listens to your needs. Dr. Marten lectures all over the World and is renown for his work. His office is State of the Art, his staff is friendly, accommodating, and very professional. I cannot imagine going to anyone else for he is simply the BEST!  Respond

23/09/12 5 4 5 5 I am very pleased with the lower SMAS face lift and neck lift I had done in mid-August from Dr. Timothy Marten. My biggest concerns were: a loss of facial fat, jowls, an ill-defined jawline, and very bony, aged-looking hands. In addition to completely rejuvenating these areas, Dr. Marten suggested other improvements to provide added longevity: fat injections in several places on my face and an upper eyelid bleph. I LOVE my new, defined jawline. And my hands look absolutely stunning! The fat injections have given me an overall more youthful appearance, too. I am 57, female, and felt it was time to get these issues addressed. I would not hesitate to return to Dr. Marten for touch-ups or more work in the future.  Respond

14/09/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Marten changed my life -- he made me feel young and vital again. At 54, a couple of years ago, I avoided looking in the mirror. Dr. Marten changed that. I interviewed all the top-tier Plastic Surgeons in SF and choose Dr. Marten in a second. He not only listened to me, but was so sensitive to my worry about looking "pulled" or "done." I honestly look like my younger sister, if I had one, but prettier! He did a face/neck lift with some fat transfers (my face had looked so drawn!) and the result is great and natural. No one every believes my age and never, EVER thinks I had work done. Last year, I found I had a thick waist for the first time and a sagging bust line. Subtle liposuction and fat transfers and now I have a body to match my face! I'm a performer, so that's important. If you want to see how I look nine months after my facelift, go to my website: www.ginaharris.com. I have new pics I will be posting on Facebook soon.  Respond

06/08/07 4 4 4 1 Dr. Marten performed liposuction and autologous fat transplantation on me and did it in all the wrong places, leaving me with not only cosmetic problems, but physical ones of astronomical proportions. It has been 11 years and I am still in pain from his faulty work for which he would not accept responsibility. I would advise anyone considering him for this type surgery to look elsewhere! He lied about what he had done and changed his office records to attempt to hide the facts. When a patient requests a copy of office records the physician is supposed to supply them with 10 days, but he took 6 weeks. He ruined my quality of life for which I can never forgive him, and his attitude. Don't be fooled by the seeming caring attitude as it disappears when something goes wrong!
