Dr Marc Pacifico

Mr Marc Pacifico MD FRCS(Plast) has been described as one of the UK’s rising stars in plastic surgery. His academic, surgical and practice achievements include, amongst others, coming top in the UK’s consultant level plastic surgery examinations (being awarded the Gold Medal), the publication of over 50 international peer-reviewed papers, being a regular invited speaker at conferences and the opening of his own private clinic, Purity Bridge, alongside his busy public and private surgical practices.

He has built his reputation on a combination of a high level of surgical skill, an industrious work ethic and a personal, friendly approach to patient care. His publications include both aesthetic and reconstructive papers, with special reference to correction of the tuberous breast.

In the ever-evolving aesthetic arena, Marc recognizes the continuum between non-surgical and surgical techniques, using all available options to formulate a bespoke treatment plan for every patient. This process has been further enabled in his practice by the opening of his private clinic, Purity Bridge, that offers a wide range of treatments.

The art of rejuvenation is not a “one stop shop” but rather a process, with the right procedure required at the right time for the right outcome. That means maintaining surgical results with specifically timed non-surgical interventions, as well as a global approach to the individual that is outcome driven.

Marc Pacifico is a fully accredited specialist in plastic surgery, and is on the Specialist Register in Plastic Surgery with the UK’s General Medical Council & a member of BAAPS, BAPRAS and ISAPS.
