Dr. Mark Volpicelli, MD
Dr. Mark Volpicelli is board certified in ophthalmology and has been practicing medicine in California for over thirty-five years. He is currently a Clinical Assistant Professor at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center where he teaches residents in training.  His value to aesthetic medicine cannot be underestimated, as he trains and teaches residents in eye surgery and regularly uses a retrobulbar injection for anesthesia.  With the increase of adverse events such a vision loss and blindness with dermal fillers, every aesthetics practice should have a strong relationship with an ophthalmologist to assist with ocular emergencies.  His knowledge and expertise are invaluable and we are grateful to have him on our board of advisers.

In addition to his knowledge and expertise in the ocular field of medicine, Dr. Volpicelli is also strongly interested in bariatric medicine and helping reverse the epidemic of obesity in this country.  He operates a successful weight loss clinic in Torrance, California and is the Medical Director of Medi-Weightloss in the South Bay & Torrance. His passion and interest in weight loss, exercise physiology and preventative medicine have spanned over three decades. Dr. Volpicelli strongly believes that many of our health conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease, certain cancers, autoimmune disease, and obesity are the result of poor lifestyle choices and poor nutrition. He focuses on making a positive difference for each of his patients using education, medications and encourages lifestyle changes when indicated. 


Outside of work, Dr. "V" enjoys physical fitness, resistance weight training, jogging, cycling and non-fiction reading.
