Undergoing cosmetic surgery is a big decision. There are many factors to take on board when considering a procedure, and in a society where plastic surgery is increasingly popular, finding the right plastic surgeon who not only has a reliable reputation, but also understands your needs and expectations, is key.

Indeed, as the modern world evolves, so too do the options available for plastic surgery. No-one knows this more than Dr Marco Faria Correa, a Singapore-based plastic surgeon with over 35 years of experience, who reveals that he’s been seeing “an increase in male patients, post-weight loss patients, and women looking for ‘mummy makeover procedures’ such as a tummy tuck with liposuction and breast augmentations, or liposuction with BBL and female genital rejuvenation (labiaplasty).”

Share knowledge

From breasts and tums, to lifts and bums, possibilities for surgery are seemingly endless, as are the number of plastic surgeons here on the red dot. When Dr Marco first came to Singapore from Brazil in 1996, it was initially to share his knowledge. Back then, his globally approved research and redesign of the mini tummy tuck was causing waves in the industry, especially as he developed his own technique without skin removal and with minimal scarring, using internationally patented instruments which he also designed himself.

With such scientific credentials, he was welcomed back to the red dot by the Singapore Association of Plastic Surgery to present his techniques in ‘Refinements in Liposculpture with a Patient in Standing Position’ as well as updates on ‘Endoscopic Plastic Surgery’.

Already attracting overseas patients to Singapore for surgery, Dr Marco made a base on the island to entice more international clients. Building on his qualifications, he obtained his conditional Certificate of Medical Registration from the Singapore Medical Council in 2000; Certificate of Specialist Registration in Plastic Surgery and Certificate of Specialist Accreditation from the Ministry of Health, Singapore, in 2002; and achieved his full registration with the Singapore Medical Council in 2005. With a wealth of expertise under his belt, he opened his own private clinic.

Continued research

Alongside his inpatient work, Dr Marco sustains his research and development within the area of minimally invasive surgery. In 2013, he delved into the use of robotics for plastic surgery for the Repair of Rectus Diastasis (core muscle). Once again, he re-designed instruments for robotic procedures and further refined his minimally invasive surgery surgical technique.

He continues to run international workshops for surgeons and conduct surgical demonstrations, and he has won several international awards for his pioneering work in endoscopic abdominoplasty. He is also well known for his facelift, different facial procedures, and breast and body surgeries such as body liposculpture and the ‘Brazilian Butt Lift’ (BBL).

Any surgery has risks and the potential for complications. Plastic surgery should only be carried out by a qualified and experienced professional, and patients should never compromise on safety and quality. Find a list of qualified plastic surgeons in Singapore at saps.org.sg/accreditation.
