About Dr. Patricia Mars

Dr. Patricia Mars is a sixth generation Tucsonan with deep roots in Arizona.  After 20 years in practice, she is considered an expert in her field and has a reputation as a caring and skilled surgeon.  Her knowledge of plastic surgery and non-invasive treatments make her a sought-after speaker and trainer.  She has a love of her community and its people and a long history of local volunteer work.  Motivated by a desire to help her patients discover their inner beauty, she focuses her work specifically on cosmetic surgery of the face, body, and breast.

Dr. Mars completed both her undergraduate and medical school degrees at the University of Arizona.  After medical school, she left Tucson to pursue her surgical training, completing her internship at Tufts/New England Medical Center in Boston followed by a surgical residency at SUNY Downstate affiliate Maimonides Medical Center.

Her commitment to research led to a two year research fellowship in wound healing at USC/Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.  Dr. Mars has published her research and has had the honor of presenting her work at many local and national plastic surgery meetings.  Her training in plastic surgery was then completed at USC Division of Plastic Surgery.

Drawn back to Tucson, Dr. Mars returned home in 1997 to start her plastic surgery practice.  She has been dedicated to her field of plastic surgery for 20 years and opened her solo practice, Venus By Mars Cosmetic Surgery, in 2007 to better serve her patients.  In 2012, Dr. Mars built a new office and private out-patient surgery center.   Dr. Mars and her staff are dedicated to helping patients bring out their inner beauty in a safe and nurturing environment.

Dr. Mars  was recently recognized as an IDEAL IMPLANT Preferred Surgeon due to her extensive expertise working with IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants, the latest technology in breast augmentation. With a unique structure surrounding these saline-filled implants, women can achieve beautiful results with zero risk of silent rupture. Dr. Mars uses the IDEAL IMPLANT to help women look and feel their best. With the IDEAL IMPLANT, no expensive MRIs are needed, and they come with a lower risk of both capsule contracture and ruptures when compared to other implants.
