I always knew I would be a surgeon. Plastic Surgery attracted me because it’s one of the few specialties that is as intriguing as it is complex. A heightened level of skill is required to be a great plastic surgeon. When you consider your final results are impossible to hide, doing it well becomes the ultimate challenge. Cosmetic enhancement offers a certain degree of artistic freedom and interpretation. And that makes my profession one of the most satisfying I can imagine.

San Diego Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Vincent Marin is a native of San Diego, California. After having spent his years as an undergraduate at Harvard University, he earned his medical degree at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. He then traveled across the country to learn from many of the medical field’s most esteemed minds. Having witnessed the way surgery can significantly improve both the body and mind from the physical ailment and aesthetic issues, Dr. Marin was inspired to follow a career in plastic surgery.

Dr. Vincent Marin has served as a Chief Resident in the Baylor College of Medicine’s Division of Plastic Surgery, at the world-renowned Texas Medical Center. A Diplomate of the American Board of Plastic Surgery, he is among the academic elite in his specialty who has received degrees in two separate Ivy League universities.

As a board-certified plastic surgeon by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Vincent Marin specializes in procedures of the body, breast, face, and nose. His extensive experience with secondary rhinoplasty and breast augmentation revision surgery has made him become an authority in two of the most challenging operations in plastic surgery.

Dr. Vincent Marin’s Plastic Surgery Practice in La Jolla

Marin Aesthetics hold a comfortable and state-of-the-art facility where patients are greeted by a welcoming staff who are ready to guide them through each step of their journey. The office opened its doors in 2007 and continues to provide countless patients in San Diego and beyond with safe and highly satisfying cosmetic and reconstructive results.

At Marin Aesthetics, Dr. Vincent Marin approaches each and every patient by reflecting on the beauty within. This begins with a productive consultation that will serve as the first step in achieving a patient’s cosmetic goals. Understanding that patients often come in with a generalized understanding of plastic surgery, Dr. Marin educates and guides his patients through the number of cosmetic enhancement procedures available. He interprets the information in a personal manner for every patient, ensuring a high degree of trust is established. In addition, patients outside of San Diego can also schedule a virtual consultation with Dr. Marin.

Our office is located along Genesee Avenue, inside the H.M. Poole Building at the prestigious Scripps Memorial Hospital. Because of San Diego’s year-long sunny forecasts, Marin Aesthetics has become a popular choice for patients outside the state of California. Out of town patients often spend about a week and a half in the city and stay just a stone’s throw away from the best hotels and attractions San Diego has to offer.
