Dr. Karlo Marco Capellan had his beginnings at the University of the Philippines - Los Baños, where he earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology. He then pursued his Doctor of Medicine at the University of the East–Ramon Magsaysay Memorial Medical Center (UERMMMC). He got his sub-specialty training under the Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic fellowship program of the Rizal Medical Center (RMC), one of the accredited training programs approved by the Philippine Association of Plastic Reconstructive And Aesthetic Surgeons (PAPRAS). During his last year in the program, he was recognized for his great work and was appointed as the Chief Fellow of the Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic fellowship program. He then served as a general surgeon at the Rizal Medical Center.

Currently, Dr. Capellan practices at his own clinic, Symmetry Plastic Surgery Clinic. There, he offers several plastic/cosmetic medical procedures such as liposuction, rhinoplasty (nose lift), breast augmentation, blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), facelifts, and, tummy-tuck, to name a few.

With six years in the industry, Dr. Capellan has extensive experience in his profession, providing medical services to patients from the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia. These experiences trained him to have a professional and personalized approach in regards to doctor-patient relationships.

He also has a fair share of volunteer work, as he is a volunteer for Operation Smile, a non-profit organization that grants cleft lip and palate surgeries to children.
