Dr. Marc C Fater has the following 2 specialties
- Plastic Surgery
A plastic surgery specialist is a physician with extensive training in the execution of plastic surgery procedures.
Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts. Congenital defects, such as a cleft lip or palate, can be corrected by a plastic surgery specialist. Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.
The other category of plastic surgery is cosmetic plastic surgery. Plastic surgery specialists often perform procedures like breast augmentation, face lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and lip injection as elective surgeries for patients who wish to make aesthetic improvements.
- Surgery of the Hand
Hand surgeons are certified surgeons who are also experts in the function and structure of your wrists, hands and forearms. This allows them to treat arthritis, carpal tunnel, trigger finger and tennis elbow, most of which tend to result from repetitive and excessive use of the corresponding joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments.
Hand surgeons also commonly work with patients who have fractures or broken bones from any kind of accident. If you're experiencing any kind of general pain in your hand, wrist or forearm that isn’t going away, a hand surgeon is probably your best resource.

Dr. Fater performed my breast reconstruction after my mastectomy. It was a rush job and should never have been performed as the course of action was to wait for the pathology reports to ensure there was no cancer in my lymph nodes. The final report was not back prior to the reconstruction and after the fact it was discovered there was cancer in my lymph nodes. A tissue expander should have been put but the reconstruction was done anyway. I ended up having to have radiation on the side with the breast implant and am now left with Stage 4 capsular contracture - hardening of the implant surrounded by scar tissue, a very painful condition. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND.
I had a blepharoplasty done with Dr. Marc Fater in 2015. Although he seemed a bit stand-offish at the first meeting he is a no nonsense, down to earth professional. I am completely satisfied with the surgery and after treatment received by Dr. Fater. Since their was some swelling he scheduled me for an additional of 3 follow up visits WITHOUT charge. The surgery had the requested result and healing time was very quick. The office and surgery staff is super nice and they make you feel completely at ease. I would highly recommend Dr. Fater.
I am in my late 20's and went to Dr Fater to get implants. I am in a professional field with a small build. I requested a natural look and that is exactly what I got. I am so happy with my decision to go with Dr Fater. I am two weeks post op and feel great. I know the implants still need to settle but so far so good.The girls in the office are wonderful and easy to work with. I would do it all over again if I had the choice.
