Dr Dario Rochira
Dr Dario Rochira started his medical career with the intention of becoming a Vascular Surgeon. However after one year Dr Rochira realised that Plastic Surgery was going to be his true calling and he went on to qualify as a Specialist Plastic Surgeon.
Dr Rochira graduated from the School of Medicine, Catholic University of Rome in Italy in 2004 and completed a Fellowship in Microsurgery at the University of California, Los Angeles, with a special focus on free flap breast and inferior limbs reconstruction.
Dr Rochira then obtained a Diploma of Sonography and is included in the Italian Registry of Specialist Sonographers. Dr Rochira has a special interest in implant-based and autologous-tissue breast reconstruction evaluation and has performed over 1,000 breast ultrasound scans.
Dr Rochira subsequently qualified as a Specialist Plastic Surgeon in 2012 and now carries out all types of face and body surgery but has a large practice in Rhinoplasty (nose surgery).
Dr Rochira was the first Specialist Plastic Surgeon in the United Kingdom to incorporate a technique known as ‘Preservation Rhinoplasty’ into his practice, which is becoming regarded as the next generation for performing Rhinoplasty operations as it provides more predictable results for the surgeon and allows the patient to benefit for natural results and to recover much faster afterwards.
Dr Rochira will take as long as necessary to listen to new patients and understand their motivations for surgery. He is frequently praised for his friendly and approachable demeanour and the honest professional advice that he gives to his patients. Dr Rochira understand that the reason many people delay cosmetic surgery (especially on their face) is the fear of ‘not looking themselves’ afterwards and he prides himself on the natural looking results that he achieves for his patients.
