Timothy Marten, MD - Bad Experience

R J. 6/20/2016 1.0 star rating TERRIBLE Experience! I DO NOT TRUST this doctor on any level. When post surgical problems occurred, changed from the pre surgery nice guy behavior to rude and snarky. Told me problems were my fault because I sought surgery. Neck/face look so much worse now according to family, friends and photos. Wish someone had given me the "Buyer Beware" warning beforehand. Chose this guy because he had a big name. Sometimes big names translate into big egos. Certainly paid big money. Big mistake!

Abysmal Experience

Unsatisfactory Timothy Marten, MD response to poor surgical outcomes: lumpy, uneven absorption of overdone fat grafting along with poorly executed facelift. Marten refuses to accept responsibility and uses the convenient excuse of "patient healing" characteristics for all poor outcomes. He cites improvement based on adulterated pre-op photos (underexposed, flash off-center, digital wizardry, etc.) and compares to after photos taken in the first post-op months (favorable lighting and before fat graft absorption).

Mediocre to Poor Resuls

I also experienced less than satisfactory results - so much so that I feel ruined and deformed. Dr. Marten doesn't really care, denies the obvious and essentially disappears when problems arise (as reported previously by "Red Roxie" in a Real Self forum. She and several other disgruntled patients are spot on. The problem is Dr. Marten has mastered the art of marketing and through astroturfing (fake reviews), skillful photo editing, his 2009 "text" and frequent presence at conferences has set himself up as "the" fat graft expert. Fat grafting, and especially his overdone technique, is a problematic procedure with potentially deforming results.

Been there myself. Dr Timothy Marten completely changed my face several years ago.

He kicked this dog when she was already down... use caution, he’s all smoke and mirrors and he will destroy your feminine beauty!

I'm very sorry to read this.

I truly sorry that this happened to you too.

I just got over an anxiety attack after feeling my face what he did to me.

He drilled my nose bone so much that my previously nice nose is now a huge mess...

He sucked my fats from my face off..

He pulled the structures overly tight and to wrong directions My neck chokes me.

And the list continues! This is terrible.

It's extremely hard to live like this. I was only 36 when he destroyed me.

"No reasonable revision plan for unsatisfactory outcomes. Sends long but obviously oft used and standard email replies to patient complaints.

Office visits are unsatisfying and discrepancies abound (denials, obfuscations, etc.).

Another MD suggested taping conversations with Dr. Marten to avoid these issues."

This Tim Marten is not a professional plastic surgeon due to the fact that he violated a patient badly with surgeries she did not want or need. Her face is disfigured now and she has dysfunction on her body. He did everything due to his hate towards her. He could have...

This review is not only about bad quality, but about a crime this plastic surgeon did. Surgery without consent is a crime, so is touching body on face only operation.

This place is very shady. Beware!
