Meet Dr. Yellin

Seth A. Yellin, MD, FACS  is Founder and Director of Marietta Facial Plastic Surgery, Laser & Aesthetics Center. As one of Atlanta’s most well-respected facial plastic surgeons, he has treated thousands of patients during more than 25 years in practice with the goal of making each and every patient happy and more confident.

Dr. Yellin is nationally renowned for his expertise in creating a natural, beautiful look when performing cosmetic and reconstructive facial plastic surgery and reshaping the face with injectable fillers using his Injecta-Lift technique. He believes that the ultimate test of a great plastic surgeon is the naturally beautiful appearance of the patient. “An aesthetic success leaves the patient more beautiful without telegraphing that work has been done,” he asserts.

An Aesthetic Master & Educator

Prior to partnering with Marietta Dermatology & The Skin Cancer Center, Dr. Yellin was proud to be the Founder & Director of the Emory Facial Center and Chief of Facial Plastic Surgery at Emory Healthcare for more than 12 years. As an educator, he taught the art and science of facial plastic surgery at Emory University School of Medicine to more than 50 Head & Neck surgical residents and was an aesthetic surgical instructor for the Emory Oculoplastic Surgery Fellowship.

Dr. Yellin feels that teaching has made him an even better surgeon. “Teaching in the classroom, the operating room and on the lecture circuit both nationally and internationally requires you to hone your craft to a very high level,” he says. “It has also required me to scrutinize my work. You can’t hide from the truth when there are so many eyes watching.” Dr. Yellin has earned an impeccable reputation as a sought-after presenter and trainer.

Dr. Yellin received his undergraduate degree with Phi Beta Kappa distinction from Emory University and his medical degree with Alpha Omega Alpha distinction from New York University School of Medicine. He then completed six years of General Surgery and Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery training in New York City at Lenox Hill Hospital, Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital, New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center, and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
