Dr. Mario Piombino is a doctor specialising in vascular surgery and reconstructive, plastic and aesthetic surgery, who graduated from the Federico II University of Naples in 1972, and went on to specialise in vascular surgey in 1978. He is now following the path marked out by his main interest and passion for cosmetic surgery, since specialising in Reconstructive Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery at the Federico II University in Naples in 1990.
He completed his training at the Planas Plastic Surgery Clinic in Barcelona and the Department of Plastic Surgery at the Catholic University of Rio di Janeiro.
His professional activities naturally followed this direction; he started out as a surgical assistant in the emergency room at the Caserta City Hospital in 1974, where he continued into the 1990s when he started to develop his career as a plastic surgeon at the same hospital.
Since 1997 he has been a self-employed practitioner, and simultaneously worked alongside his wife, Rita Parente, to establish Ripar Cosmetics, of which he is now president.
The project was founded on the desire to create products that could be truly beneficial, by masking and disguising blemishes and imperfections such as vitiligo, port wine stains, ecchymosis and others, which neither surgery nor dermatotological treatment can cure. Products supported by his long experience in hospitals in this field.
The fundamental concept was to develop a range of cosmetics that could flawlessly conceal the results of repeated plastic surgery interventions that would be truly useful as a camouflage on a daily basis, based on solid, scientific research and supported by Rita Parente's technical experience in developing advanced quality products. A project that has enjoyed great success and still continues to flourish.
