Dr. Luca Piombino is a specialist in plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery; he lives in Rome, where most of his work is based, and travels to other cities in Italy for his consultancy work.
Fascinated by cosmetic surgery from an early age, he followed in his father's footsteps and graduated in Medicine and Surgery from the Second University of Naples.
He subsequently specialised in Reconstructive, Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery at the Bio-Medical University Campus in Rome, and completed his studies in the USA at some of the best universities in California, where amongst other projects he completed an internship as a research associate for "body contouring" treatments in post-bariatric patients at the department of Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery at UCI Irvine, California. He followed this with a period of training in cosmetic aesthetic surgery at the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Buenos Aires (UBA) – Hospital Interzonal de Agudos Eva Perón.
He has also participated in a number of international humanitarian surgical missions.
He has published numerous scientific works and addressed many national and international conferences; he also follows developments in laser technology and its applications for cosmetic and reconstructive surgery.
He is currently vice president of Ripar Cosmetics and plays an active role in the planning and development process for cosmetic products for the family business.
His objective is to create products based on professional, scientific research; his mission is rooted in the scientific medical expertise that he has gained over the years, a fundamental starting point for developing cutting-edge cosmetic products that reflect the precise needs of each customer, based on their particular condition.
The potential to create, for example, a range of make-up like Ripar Cover Camouflage that can hide imperfections, cover the scars left by surgery and assist medical practitioners such as dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons, is undoubtedly of enormous benefit to anyone who has had suffered this kind of trauma.
