I am very very happy with my results. My sister was impressed with my new look and eventually wants to do the same procedure as well. Dr. Machida is very skilled, helpful, and spent much time with me going over my procedure. His nurses spent time with me and helped me with my care after surgery. I would highly recommend Dr. Machida and the experience was definitely worth it.
I had an upper eyelid procedure done and I am so ecstatic! The procedure was quick and the recovery was fairly painless. My eyes now look 10 years younger. I used to have big eyes and now with this procedure, they are back youthful and big again!
I never thought i could look so young again. The j plasma was incredible. I love to put on makeup now, and have much more confidence too. I knew it would be nice but I never dreamed how nice it is. Its mind boggling. I'm a all new person.
I'm very happy with my results. They explained everything to me so well and my worries and concerns were helped by Dr. Machida and his staff. My self esteem has increased since the procedure. I don't have to cover up my face with my hair anymore. I feel more confident and secure.
the staff was incredibly helpful. very great bed side manner. doctor was well informed and kind
I 'm very content with my new look. I will continue to see Dr. Machida for any other procedures. I recommend him hightly to my friends and relatives. My family can't believe how fast I healed. They can't see my scars. All my sisters are interested in having him do the same procedure. I'm very happy with the staff. They're knowledgeable, friendly, and I loved the aftercare that I received. I'd be lost without it. I was not forgotten after the procedure.
I'm so pleased and truly amazed at how well the Picosure worked! I had no downtime at all. My Sunspots and freckles are virtually gone
I 'm very happy with my results because my eyelids are no longer dropping. I feel I look younger. My sister said that I look better because I look younger. I felt like I was aging more before the procedure. I want to thank Dr. Machida. He's very professional and did a great job! His staff were very helpful and professional.
excellent! pictures look fantastic! Unbelievable results.
Great communication, gifted surgeon and a fantastic staff.

i like the results. i trust the Doctor Machida. , i will recommend him to my friends.

Consumer Beware, I found an offer on Groupon for eyelid lift surgery. STC Plastic Surgery's promotional price for the eyelid surgery was $1499. Prior to purchasing the deal, the fine print indicated that a consultation was required. The office assistant explained the process and strongly encourage that I book a consultation first and they will honor the Groupon rate at the office. When I got there, Dr. Machida denied the promotional offer and wanted me to pay more. False advertisement; unethical

Excellent experience - excellent staff -well informed - reduced my anxiety -Great results. My friend when he first saw me after a few months, noticed immediately the change. 'You look like a movie star!!! Two of my friends, him included, asked me for the contact information for Dr. Machida.
Very professional, knowledgeable about the whole procedure, warm & friendly. I'm happy with the result. I strongly recommend Dr Machida to every one.
My husband and I decided to give each other a facial rejuvenation for our 50th anniversary. My husband says I look 20 years younger and I look beautiful. Thank you Dr Machida for your expertise.
From the consultation to the end result I was very pleased with the professionalism that Mr. Mashida and his entire staff put forth. My wife and I went to our consultation two weeks prior to our 50th wedding anniversary and felt so confident we decided to have the procedure done at the same time. We are a month passed our procedure and my wife looks 40 and I look 50+ wow we can now look at each other with the clock set back to a more youthful time.
I came at the suggestion of a friend - who had been a patient of Dr. Machida, She was right, I was impressed with the doctor and the staff. I appreciated the time they all spent keeping me informed and answering all my many questions. All in all, great results of the surgery and a very excellent personal experience with the doctor and the staff!!
overall experience was amazing. Will recommend Dr Machida to all my family friends.
Doctor Machida and all the office staff were wonderful and answered all my questions and concerns. They made feel very comfortable at each and every appointment I am super happy with the results. People that know me give me daily compliments in how well I look without knowing that I had surgery. I would recommend Dr. Machida's services to anyone. I'm sure that they will love the results as much as I do.
I felt very safe with Dr. Machida. I trust his hands and his skill. My results were excellent and above my expectations. I'm more than happy with my eyelids. I'm bringing my brother to see Dr. Machida and he already has an appointment. I'm definitely coming back for my facelift.
I want to thank Dr. Machida for his services, kindness, and his prayers. The results are great! I feel whole. I have a vivacious personality and now my appearance matches my personality and mannerisms. I went to a fund raising dinner and the doorman asked if I was a movie star...because he said I looked like one!
Mary was my first contact and she really helped me make the decision to move forward. Dr. Machida is amazing, I would never trust another doctor after having Dr. Machiida recommend for all your cosmetic needs.
First impression - the staff is super nice and caring. The doctor is fantastic. I am super satisfied with the results of my eyelid surgery. My family was worried but everyone is amazed. Recovery was literally not painful at all. Followed all instructions given by the staff (that helps :-).

Doctor Machida and his staff were patient and answered all questions I had. The results were fabulous. I would recommend Dr. Machida to my friends.
I had thought about having this done for a long time. SO happy I finally did it. My sons, who wouldn't speak to me initially upon hearing I had decided to do it, are the most complimentary of all. One week after, when first seeing me, their faces lit up and mouths fell open and they said, "Mom! You look 10 or 15 years younger." I went to a meeting at work and hadn't seen my co workers since then. I received attention from 4 co-workers who gave me compliments but did...
Dr. Machida is worth it...don't think twice about his services. I am really pleasantly surprised that I didn't feel any pain during the procedure. Its so rewarding to see my results and my progress. My friends couldn't tell that I had surgery but said that I looked refreshed. It looks so natural. I'm just very happy and my results were more than I expected. I'm overall very satisfied.
I'm very satisfied with my natural look. I trusted Dr. Machida with my procedure. He was very truthful in telling me what was needed and what wasn't needed. I 'm a very nervous person, and I felt reassurance from Dr. Machida and I felt comfort from his prayer for me.

The results were more than what I expected. The pain was minimal and the recovery time was very short. I work in the medical field so I know what's good.

My friends told me that I look younger but they were not able to tell that I've had surgery. The scars were very minimal. I would highly recommend Dr. Machida for any plastic surgery. Peop...
I'm very happy with my results. I didn't expect the results to be so excellent. I've had several friends say how good my results look and I've already given them Dr. Machida's number. I've gotten so many compliments. People dont' even recognize me. My healing was very fast and my results came very fast. I was surprised how quickly I saw my results.

I'm not self conscious about my age and my lines, because the procedure was excellently done.The office and operating room was very professional looking and clean. I would highly recommend Dr. Machida and his procedure to everyone. My friend already wants to do it too.
After the procedure, I feel so much better about myself. I don't think I could find a better plastic surgeon and I've had quite a few. Most other plastic surgeons would not tackle my face. He had no problem because he really knows what he's doing. I feel like I'm in my twenties and look it. And you know, the best part is when I found out he loves the Lord like I do. Also, he prayed with me before surgery. Now what plastic surgeon does that! Incredible!
Dr. Machida was very detailed in his explanation before, during and after the procedure. I experienced no pain at all, throughtout the entire experience. I feel very comfortable and confident about everything, what has been done and the outcome of my surgery. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The facility was very clean and professional. They made me feel welcome and at home. Thank you doc. and thank you all.
