Seth A. Yellin, MD, FACS


“It’s not enough to be an excellent surgeon. You also must have an artist’s eye.”

Dr. Seth A. Yellin is founder and director of Marietta Facial Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics Center. As one of Atlanta’s most well-respected facial plastic surgeons, he has treated thousands of patients during more than 17 years in practice with the goal of making each and every patient happy. Dr. Yellin is nationally renowned for his expertise in creating a natural look when volumizing the face with injectable fillers and performing cosmetic and reconstructive facial plastic surgery. Dr. Yellin believes that “the ultimate test of a great plastic surgeon is the naturally beautiful appearance of the patient.”

Prior to partnering with Marietta Dermatology & The Skin Cancer Center, Dr. Yellin was 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 the Emory University School of Medicine where he continues to teach and mentor surgical residents. Dr. Yellin feels that teaching makes one a better surgeon. “Having taught in the classroom, the operating room and on the lecture circuit both nationally and internationally makes you scrutinize your work. You can’t hide from the truth when there are so many eyes watching.”

Dr. Yellin received his undergraduate degree with distinction from Emory University and his medical degree with distinction from New York University School of Medicine. He underwent six years of general surgical and head and neck surgical 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.
