Professional profile

I was appointed a consultant plastic surgeon to the world-renowned specialist plastic surgery service at Queen Victoria Hospital in East Grinstead in 2009, having undertaken my specialist training in London, East Grinstead and Melbourne, Australia. It was in Melbourne that I focussed the final part of my training on advanced aesthetic surgery. Since then I have built my private practice principally in aesthetic (cosmetic) surgery, and I perform surgery to the face, the breasts and the body.

I specialise in facial plastic surgery, breast plastic surgery and plastic surgery to the body. I also perform a lot of skin cancer surgery and reconstruction on the face and body.

I perform over 100 cosmetic breast surgeries a year, around 80 cosmetic facial operations and around 80 cosmetic operations to the body

I am the lead clinician at Queen Victoria Hospital, East Grinstead and oversee plastic surgery training and trainees. I am also a representative on the BSI group review of aesthetic medicine for the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS).

Marc Pacifico has been described as one of his generation’s rising stars in plastic surgery. His achievements include coming top in the UK’s consultant level plastic surgery examinations (being awarded the Gold Medal), publishing over 50 international papers and being a regular invited speaker at conferences.

His reputation is of a high level of surgical skill, an artistic eye and his holistic, friendly approach to patient care. His particular areas of interest include the face and breast, as well as body contouring surgery. The look Marc always aims to achieve is natural and fresh. Marc particularly focuses on the care his patients receive pre- and post-operatively, in order to optimize the outcome of surgery and provide all under his care with a smooth recovery after their procedure.

I regularly lecture nationally and internationally on aesthetic surgery and aesthetic medicine and publish scientific articles on plastic surgery in the medical literature. I am a peer reviewer for several international plastic surgery journals (e.g. JPRAS) and regularly submit scientific papers for publication in these journals.
