I’m really glad that I chose you to do my procedure because I am confident I received the best outcome possible. I appreciate your kind manner and patience with all the questions I asked you. For me it really comes down to building trust and you upheld my trust in every way. Now I can enjoy the results and the negative image and feelings I had have been removed! Poof, like magic! I wanted to reach out and thank you again.
I found everyone in the office very professional and informative. Everyone made me feel comfortable and relaxed. I was given specific knowledge of the procedure and care instructions prior and after the procedure. Dr. Marcus does not try to sell” more procedures and in fact lets you know what you do not need by telling you the positive things about your skin and assuring you that less is better. He also believes in not changing your look, just making it better and building on what you have. I like that the results are totally natural and that he encourages that. I feel his honesty is vital in achieving the desired results with a natural look. He also gives his personal cell # for immediate response after procedure, and calls daily to be sure everything is okay. I found this very comforting and supportive. I would and have highly recommended him to numerous friends.”
I have had two face lifts performed by Dr. Marcus. The first one was 20 years ago at age 47. The results were amazing because it was so natural that none of my family or friends could tell I had work done. They were complimenting me on how great I looked and how much younger than my age I looked yet no one thought for a moment that I had a face lift. Dr. Marcus works miracles by making you look beautiful and younger without making you look pulled tight and unnatural.
He performed my second face lift 15 years later at age 62 and of course I got the result that I wanted. Once again he took years off my face, making me look refreshed and youthful. His work is impeccable and today at 67 years old I look better than I did 20 years ago. I am complimented almost every single day on how young and great I look and it is all thanks to the extraordinary work and expertise of Dr. Marcus.
I have seen many face lifts of friends who live in both Santa Rosa and Los Angeles and none compare to the incredible surgical outcomes by Dr. Marcus. I would recommend him and ONLY him if you are thinking about have a face lift. And, if it isn’t enough that he is the very “best” surgeon around, you will not find a doctor who is more honest, caring and compassionate. He was there for me on my first consultation and was completely attentive to me after surgery with calls and assurances that he was a call away if I needed him for anything. It is a very secure feeling to know that your doctor is there for you after your surgery is over.
After three pregnancies (all cesarean sections), I felt self-conscious about the excess skin on my abdomen, even though I had lost most of the extra weight I had gained during pregnancy. Five years ago Dr. Marcus performed a mini-abdominoplasty (at the same time as another procedure), and I am so thrilled! My abdomen is smooth again, and at age 50 I am still wearing a two piece bathing suit, and my friends tell me I still look fantastic!
I feel the care I received from you and your staff was exceptional, especially the after surgery follow-up care. Your office really impressed me, as did yourself, when only a few hours after my return home from surgery, I received a phone call from you inquiring how I was doing. I hadn’t expected your call, but I must say it made me feel very secure, and that you cared. Then your staff continued to call me for the next few days to inquire as to how I was doing. I can only say you are the only doctor I would want to have performing cosmetic surgery on me, as you have instilled my total confidence in your care.
I would like to take this time to thank your staff for the warm feeling that is left from this experience due to the contact I had with them. I wold also like you to know how happy I am about the results. Your skill and experience as a surgeon shows in the fact that I can barely see the scars and that I have full sensitivity. Thank you.
Your team works very well together. I always felt very comfortable and well taken care of while at your Cosmetic Surgery office in Santa Rosa, CA.
As far as I am concerned, Botox is one of the miracle discoveries of the 20th Century! Ever since I was a teenager I had deep lines between my eyebrows and across my forehead. People always thought I looked angry or sad.
Dr. Marcus injected Botox into my forehead muscles and even though he said I might not see results right away, within minutes of my first injections my forehead lines were markedly diminished, and within a couple of days they were gone completely.
It is a quick and inexpensive procedure that softened the “stern” look of my face, and I think took several years off my face. I would do it again in a second!
In just two hours I went from a very underdeveloped, flat chest that I had always been ashamed of to a rounder, softer, beautiful figure that I just love.
Just a quick note of thanks and appreciation. I love my new breasts and so does my husband. Also, I just went to see my O.B., and he was amazed at the results. He said I had the most natural looking breast augmentation he had ever seen! (And he has a very busy practice!) Thank you so much!
This letter is to express my appreciation for your professional skills and excellent care which I received from you.
My expectations prior to my breast augmentation were that of having a more proportional appearance in relation to my small waist and frame, without obvious notice that I had had such a surgery performed. That was realized three weeks after my surgery when my father and mother came to visit, at which time my father, not realizing I had surgery performed, made mention to me (at the age of 45) how I looked as beautiful as when I was 15. It looks like, thanks to you, I more than reached my goal.
I underwent breast implant surgery earlier this year. I wanted fuller looking breasts. I was not very nervous about the procedure since I have already gained trust in Dr. Marcus from my facelift he performed earlier. The results of both are astounding! I feel and look so much better in whatever I wear now. Dr. Marcus was very caring, professional, gentle and intent on doing his very best for me. He made me feel very important as his patient and took lots of time answering all my questions in detail and I never felt rushed by him. He has a wonderful bedside manner. His staff is also very caring and professional. I highly recommend Dr. Marcus to anyone interested in a plastic surgery procedure of any kind. He is truly a wonderful doctor.
I am so glad I found Dr. Marcus. My new breasts are just perfect! I always had very small breasts, but after breastfeeding two babies, I decided it was time to do something about it. I can honestly say that my decision to have a breast augmentation was one of the best decisions I have ever made for my self-confidence and self esteem. I love my new body, and even though I had another baby after the augmentation, it didn’t change their shape at all, and it didn’t interfere with breastfeeding. I would highly recommend Dr. Marcus and breast augmentation to anyone who has ever thought about it.
My eyes have always been what I considered one of my best features. Then at about age 40 people started telling me regularly that I looked tired even when I wasn’t. I also started to develop dark circles and considerable wrinkling under my eyes. I wasn’t sure what I needed, but I made an appointment with Dr. Marcus on the recommendation of a good friend. I can’t tell you how thankful I am I did.
Dr. Marcus recommended laser skin resurfacing under my eyes, and eyelid surgery on my upper eyelids. I didn’t even realize that my upper lids were affecting my appearance, but Dr. Marcus was absolutely right! I had very little swelling and bruising on the upper lids, and I had redness on the lower eyelids for a week (which could be concealed with makeup on the third day).
I am so thankful for Dr. Marcus for his artful and skillful work, and for his staff who made the whole experience a pleasure. I highly recommend Dr. Marcus to anyone considering cosmetic surgery in the bay area. We are so lucky to have him in Sonoma County.
I look at least ten years younger, and people are telling me again that I have beautiful eyes – I never hear anymore that I look tired because I don’t.
Dr. Marcus performed a facelift on me five years ago at age 46. I was initially concerned about facial surgery before I spoke to Dr. Marcus because I actually liked the way I looked, and I didn’t want to look different. I just wanted to look like I used to when I was younger. Dr. Marcus did just what I had hoped for! Now no one would ever guess my age, and I look as young and as vibrant as I feel. At my 50th birthday party last year, they had a photo that was taken of me when I was 32 years old. People couldn’t believe it wasn’t just taken a few months ago! I looked just the way I did 18 years ago! I can’t thank him enough, as well as his wonderful staff, for the great outcome and experience. I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone interested in cosmetic surgery.
Dr. Marcus was recommended to me by my family practitioner, and a well-known surgeon. Dr. Marcus is a kind and sincere man who takes great pride in his ability and expertise. To make a long story short, his surgery took twenty years off my face, without the tight stretched look so many patients receive from other cosmetic surgeons. I have regained a feeling of attractiveness and confidence and cannot resist looking into the mirror to see the magic he has performed. I was not only impressed with Dr. Marcus, but with the wonderful and capable staff he surrounds himself with. My results were way beyond any expectations I had. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
I wanted to let you know, in writing, how pleased I am with the results of my cosmetic surgeries and to compliment you and your staff for a very positive experience. I was immediately impressed, on my first visit for a facelift consult, with your professional manner and thoroughness in answering my questions and discussing at length the procedures and anticipated outcome. Your reputation as an “artist” was upheld with the ‘refreshment’ of my face, and the recent liposuction of my mid-section has fulfilled my life-long dream of having a flat stomach. You and your team are all efficient, caring, accommodating and friendly – making it a pleasure to be a patient there. I, at 60 years young, feel great about the results and the feedback from my friends and my mirror tell me I look great, too.
When I was in my early 40s, I began to have that “tired” look – dark circles under my eyes and slight bagginess. In fact, friends often told me I “looked tired.” I began looking in the mirror and seeing my mother who was 23 years older! I went to see Dr. Marcus who thought I was not quite ready for facial surgery but suggested laser resurfacing my lower eyelids. The effect was amazing. I looked ten years younger soon after the skin healed. That was seven years ago and the results have still lasted. People no longer tell me I look tired. Instead, they are always asking me what I do for my skin and are shocked at my age. Thank you, Dr. Marcus, for the excellent care and for steering me in the direction of the surgical procedure that was exactly right for me at the time. I will be back again, as will many of my friends.
This is just a short letter to express my gratitude for the wonderful work you’ve done for me. To date I’ve had liposuction, tummy tuck and laser surgery on my face. I wanted to thank you all for making these surgeries such a pleasant experience. You, Dr. Marcus, made sure that I was fully aware of what I could expect so that my expectations were realistic, and your wonderful office staff was caring and informative to the “nth” degree. I have nothing but the highest regard for the work I’ve had done and look forward to having more done in the future with you. You have allowed me to have the self-confidence that I lacked for so many years. Thank you.
I am writing this letter to tell you how happy I am with my recent surgery. I was very impressed with your very nice staff and your sensitivity and kindness throughout my whole treatment. The procedure was much easier than I imagined it. I would certainly recommend this to anyone who would like to reshape his or her body. My final results were even more wonderful than I had expected, and if I had known this, I would have done this a long time ago. Thank you very much for your professionalism and the great job you did.
