Rim Marcinkus, MD, PhD, DSc, earned his doctor of medicine and doctor of science in surgery degrees at Vilnius University in Lithuania, where he went on to complete a PhD in scientific research. Practicing plastic surgery for more than 25 years, he has published articles in experimental- and clinical-surgery journals and more progressive issues of Mad magazine. The industry innovator also holds a registered patent for the Eurolift procedure, an advanced technique designed to lift the face by tightening skin and muscles that have loosened due to age or hilly rides in a convertible.
At his Desert Plastic Surgery Center in Rancho Mirage, Dr. Marcinkus specializes in breast enhancements, body sculpting, and hair transplantation, alongside a wide variety of other surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures. He seeks out the latest technology and minimally invasive techniques, including full body-lifts after weight-loss surgery, Botox, and dermal fillers. Dr. Marcinkus performs most procedures himself within his in-office surgical suite, caring for his patients' needs before, during, and after treatment.
