Patient Reviews

"Tina is excellent and very conscientious about her procedures. She expresses concern for discomfort and takes pride in what she does. The finishing moisture and sun block are much appreciated. She is a great asset."


"Dear Dr. Terino:


As your know, I had contracted Lymes Disease, and gained a lot of weight due to its effecting my thyroid. As an athlete and a runner, I was not able to exercise for over a year. This was extremely upsetting, as I am, and have been, a thin person for my fifty years on this earth!

When I read about you and LIPOSELECTION, I was quite intrigued to see if I was a candidate. When I met with you, you were so empathetic, and described in detail, what the procedure entailed and the expected results. I was quite hopeful, thinking there was a slim chance in recovering my old body!

I had my surgery on June12, which included a full body liposelection process, on the thighs, knees, hips, stomach, waist, back, and upper arms, all front and back. Your team was sensitive, caring and knowledgeable. I went home and recovered the first two weeks with pain meds and then switched to over the counter pain killers. One month later, and I'm back in size twos and fours. And everyday I continue to shrink more!

Thanks so much to you and your office and surgical teams! All my friends are coming to see you! If I can be of help in spreading the word or chatting with prospective patients, please give them my Malibu numbers.

Thanks again,"


"Dr. Terino:

For two years I have thought about sending you an e-mail that says thank you. Sorry for my tardiness, but thank you for designing and making available to the rest of us grunt surgeons in the world of cosmetic surgery, the malar implant. I without exception recommend it to every facial rejuvenation patient I consult with. Along with Don Wakeham I first met you in Las Vegas at the Facial Cosmetic Surgery Multi Specialty Symposium in 2004. You and your two sparkling daughters joined us for a drink in the Piazza at the Venetian. I will always remember your respect and friendship toward Don and myself. As we are both single degree Oral and Maxillofacial surgeons, both fellowship trained in Facial Cosmetic Surgery and boarded in our specialty we very much appreciated the courtesy that you extended to us. We both went on to attend your course on Facial Implant Rejuvenation in Palm Springs in 2005. And last night I spent two hours with you, reviewing your surgical DVD's they are great! Every time I review them I pick up some new. Your implant designs are superb, and once again thank you for sharing your expertise."

"My already weak chin began to disappear altogether as I grew older. Although I was active and well-built when dressed, my chin and neck area made it appear as though I was obese. Eventually, because it semmed to do no good, I gave up on the gym. I became less social and extremely inactive. As a result, I did become obese. So, I lost the weight and sought out your medical expertise. The surgery was more successful than I ever hoped. My new face inspired me to work out harder than ever. I look and feel better than anytime in my life. I'm back to my old, active, outgoing and social self! How could I possibly thank you for my new and wonderful life!"


"To toast to the triumph of yourself. . .The other day a complete stranger came up to me and said, 'You are so ravishing I cannot take my eyes off you.'

Well, I was delighted!

Your creativity has changed my life. . . It is not that I want all this admiration especially from the young because they haven't lived life like I have. But it is nice to rid myself of the criticism both spoken and unspoken I was receiving because of my youthful actions. Thank you, thank you, thank you."


"Your middle face lift and your cheeks are the best thing I've done in my life. "I think of you all the time when I look in the mirror. Now I feel beautiful!"


"I appreciated you seeing me at the moment's notice. Your TLC was extremely wonderful. Your staff was very gracious."



"I absolutely love my new cheeks and lips!They have healed beautifully – I'm back to normal and I look and feel great! You are such a talented surgeon, and I enjoyed having the opportunity to meet you and your kind staff."



"Thank you so much for my new nose. You are a genius and I wouldn't let another touch me! I've told everyone how wonderful you are."



"Thank you for guiding me to the fountain of youth."



"Your giftedness has given me a gift. I feel great about my improved appearance. Your staff was wonderful in helping me through some of the healing fears I went through. You are in my prayers and my thoughts. Thanks."



"I want you to know how much I appreciate you and your wonderful surgical skills. You are truly blessed with an eye for beauty, and best of all you make it happen for those of us who want to look and feel as pretty as possible."



"Thank you all for the tremendous job that you did - each of you for your own contribution in making my experience pleasant, comfortable and interesting. Thank you for taking such good care of me. Love and best wishes."



"There are no words to express my gratitude and happiness for what you did for me. I'll be your loyal fan forever. You made me so beautiful, how am I going to keep all these guys fro my back?!"



"Just a little note to say thank you for taking the time to explain everything and being so honest. I hope to see you very soon."



"How do I thank you adequately for everything you've done. You're not only a truly gifted surgeon and artist but a fantastic person. It has been a pleasure getting to know you better this year. I'll see you again soon! I wish you the very best both professionally and personally."



"You are not only a master surgeon, technically and artistically, but spirit truly flows right through your hands in your creative action. I am so very blessed to have received your brilliant care, but I am blessed even more just to know you."



"Thank you for restoring my face. You are an expert surgeon, and very caring toward your patients in the recovery process. When people find out my age they are really amazed at how great I look!!"



"I just wanted to say thank you for my experience so far. Absolutely everything that you said to expect was point on. What a wonderful group of caring and capable and highly regarded people. I feel so fortunate that I get to say I was lucky enough to have Dr. Terino and his unbelievably awesome staff care for me during this time of change in my life."



"The way you present and handle yourself you are a master craftsman and well-seasoned artist. I had, and still have (after the post operative results) ultimate trust in putting my life and outer form in your hands. Thank you for your patience and depth of listening... very rare in this speed driven world, and very much appreciated."



"Know what? I've been thrilled with every procedure you.ve done for me. I suppose there are those who consider these self-centered endeavors... for me; it changes dramatically how I feel about myself and my subsequent interactive abilities in the rest of my life."



"As you know, I admire your determination, precision, and highly artistic eye. But besides being a medical innovator, it is your compassion that sets you apart. I am so excited to see the final outcome."
