"Highly Recommend Dr. Marosan, MD - Dr. Marosan, MD came highly recommended and I am completely satisfied with the results of my surgery.

Dr. Marosan and his entire staff are polite and professional."- J. / RealSelf / Aug 24, 2020
"Cant Recommend Enough - Im now 6 weeks op and I have a completely different shape! - I had some weight fluctuation in my lifetime and was unhappy with the tire around my stomach and stubborn fat in areas that were hard to exercise away. I thought it’s amazing that you can transfer fat from one area to another so I decided to get a Brazilian butt lift.I was drawn to Dr. Marosan because he has years of experience, is highly educated, knowledgeable and specializes in the procedure. Also in the reviews and in my experience he was very respectful to me as a woman, and I never felt uncomfortable around him. And we all know you can feel vulnerable when your naked in front of a doctor. He meets you for a free consult, which is amazing! We went over what I wanted to change and improve he was able to educate me on how to approach it to get the best results. He really knows the body well, truly an artist and master sculptor!! He took pictures of my body which he was able to bring up on a screen and draw right on it to show me what he was going to do. I felt very confident in him. I went into surgery during the pandemic and due to the complexity of that to keep everyone safe my husband was not able to come with to support me. However, George and his staff made me feel very comfortable and well taken care of. Everyone there is so warm and kindhearted!I went home with a garment, Lipo pads and drainage tubes. Some doctors don’t give you drainage tubes and your just supposed to drain freely onto your bed, and that would’ve ruined my $3,000 mattress. So I’m really thankful my doctor cares enough about post op to give me drainage tubes that were easy to manage. The doctor and his nurse were always very prompt at responding to questions and being available if I had any concerns.Im now 6 weeks op and I have a completely different shape! I have an hourglass figure, hips, fuller butt and flatter stomach! I can’t believe the transformation! This is already doing wonders to my self-confidence...something I’ve lacked for so long. I find myself actually saying something good about myself and seeing myself in a different light now. I’m so happy with the results and I’m so glad I went to the right doctor!"- S. / RealSelf / Aug 17, 2020
"Dr. Marosan Did a Great Job! [Tummy Tuck/Liposuction/Muscle Repair] - After researching dozens of plastic surgeons in the greater Seattle area for tummy tuck/liposuction, I went with Dr. Marosan because I could tell he was very experienced and does a lot of abdominoplasty and he was the one surgeon who places his incisions super low, right above the pubic area, and his incisions stay there (low) instead of eventually pulling up during recovery. For some reason (probably because it's easier), many other surgeons results showed incisions that were placed much higher than they needed to be. Just check out his before and after pictures and compare them with other surgeons: his after pictures show the whole incision area so you get a very good idea of where your incision will end up. [So many other surgeons after pictures are of women in underwear, so you have no idea where the incision was placed, or if you do get to see the whole area, you'll see how high the cut was]. I am now 10 weeks post surgery and am very happy with my results- he did a great job with the incision, the liposuction of my entire torso, and also the muscle plication (sewing them back together since I've had three pregnancies that separated my ab muscles). He also does a lot of follow up visits and takes pictures of your progress and gives you access to them, so you can really see your transformation.I'm so happy I went with Dr. Marosan- he (and his entire staff!) is wonderful and I highly recommend him/his practice!"- P. / RealSelf / Aug 05, 2020
"Great Doctor — the end results are fantastic. - I had a lower facelift and chin lift about 7 weeks ago after choosing Dr. Marosan for the procedure and I couldn't be happier. He took the time to thoroughly explain what was involved and didn't pressure me to book the surgery. After the surgery, he was very patient with the inevitable questions that I had and was careful to make sure that he saw me regularly while I was healing. (at the age of 67, it took a little longer for my swelling to go down) The end results are fantastic. I have a much smoother jawline without the "pulled" look that one sees in some face lifts and the saggy chin is history. His staff was great also. I would definitely recommend this doctor."- D. / RealSelf / Jul 10, 2020
What to Expect
Voluma is injected under the skin with a blunt injection cannula. Local anesthetic is injected into the skin where the cannula is inserted. Dr. Marosan will discuss with you his recommendation about how many syringes of fillers you need to achieve a beautiful long lasting result. A treatment may last up to 30 minutes. Patients will be able to return to daily activities after the treatment. There may be some swelling, discoloration and tenderness around the cheeks, but will subside after a few days. Results are readily evident, and can last up to 2 years.
Is Hyaluronic Acid Natural?
Hyaluronic acid, Voluma’s main ingredient, is derived from natural substances found in the human body. Its main function is cell hydration, and with its cross-linking abilities, it is generally useful in helping facial areas that lack volume. Over time, the gel substance breaks down and is absorbed naturally by the body without any side effects.
Those who seek improved volume in the cheeks may consider Voluma as a noninvasive solution. The lack of cheek volume may be due to aging or the patient’s natural facial structure. The doctor will be able to recommend if Voluma is the best option during the initial consultation.
How Long Is Recovery?
Right after treatment, patients will be able to resume to their normal routine with restriction on strenuous activities or any movement that may put pressure on the treated area. It may take up to 1 week before the derma filler settles within the cheek pockets.
Among derma fillers available in the market today, Voluma can last up to 2 years or longer. Reinjection varies as patients’ bodies process and break down hyaluronic acid at different rates.
