I am Dr Marco Faria Correa, Plastic Surgeon based in Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital Singapore. Ask Me Anything!
I am an internationally trained Plastic & Cosmetic Surgeon with over 30 years of experience. I perform not only Plastic Surgery, Non- Surgical Aesthetics treatments but also Reconstructive and Microsurgery.
My list of surgeries comes in a range of facial rejuvenation, breasts, body contouring procedures as well as extreme makeover cases that run likes a marathon. Besides these plastic & cosmetic cases, I also perform Mummy Makeover and Men’s Plastic Surgery. My dedication, passion and meticulous standard for my work are well recognised by my fellow colleagues and my clients.
I graduated from the Rio Grande do Sul University in Brazil in 1978 and obtained my Plastic Surgery Specialisation certification in 1984. In 1989 I obtained my post-graduation specialisation in Microsurgery & Hand Surgery from Japan. Between 1989 to 1994, I was the A/Prof of the Plastic Surgery & Microsurgery Department in the Catholic University Hospital in Porto Alegre, Brazil.
In 1991, I started to develop my research project in adapting endoscopic methods to Plastic Surgery. In 1992, I started to deliver my first case in endoscopic abdominoplasty and breast lifting. I designed a set of instruments to adapt endoscopic methods to the subcutaneous tissue and got the international patent and I presented my presentation in the Brazilian Society of Plastic Surgery. I also published my work in endoscopic plastic surgery in body contouring in the Brazilian Journal of Plastic Surgery.
This led me to be invited to many international conferences and workshop all around the world which built my scientific reputation and also created awareness within general media.
My skills are not only limited to endoscopic surgery – endoscopic brow lift, endoscopic breast lifting, and endoscopic abdominoplasty, but I am also well known for my facial rejuvenation procedures such as full facelift & neck lift, rhinoplasty, and chin augmentation procedures.
For body contouring surgeries, I am well recognized for my breast reduction & lifting mastopexy, breast enhancement using implants and fat grafting, body liposuction, standing liposculpture, abdominoplasty and the famous Brazilian butt lift are often requested for by many.
In 2013, I became interested in Robotic Surgery and gradually advanced myself to become a certified Robotic Surgeon and in 2015, I performed my first official case of Repairing the Rectus Diastasis Plication with Robotic Surgery ( Robotic Abdominoplasty / Robotic Tummy Tuck ) in Singapore. This case was officially published in the Springer: New Concepts on Abdominoplasty and Further Applications by Editors: Avelar, Juarez M. (Ed.), my paper on Robotic Procedure for Plication of the Muscle Aponeurotic Abdominal Wall in 2016. With this achievement, I also received an award by 6 different societies for bringing endoscopy plastic surgery into the next level in robotic surgery.
I actively do research and publications through workshops, conferences and publishing journals as well as remain active with ISAPS (International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery) as part of the Education Council Committee Singapore – Regional Representative Australia/Pacific.
I am certified with many international memberships from various international societies of plastic surgery such as ISAPS, IPRAS, ASPS, OSAPS, SAPS (Singapore Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery Society) and SBCP (Brazilian Society of Plastic Surgery) and SBMR (Brazilian Society of Reconstructive Microsurgery). I am also a member of the Asia Pacific Hernia Society as well as a member of the RAMSES (The Robotic Assisted Microsurgical & Endoscopic Society).
