Marek Kacki, MDMarek Kacki, MD has been in clinical medicine for the last 32 years. These include 9 years in clinical academic medicine and 15 years in group practice in Nashville caring for patients with critical and life-threatening illnesses as a Nephrologist. His interest in invasive procedures brought him an international patent for an intravascular prosthesis and delivery system. Dr. Kacki has rapidly risen to the top of his field in the aesthetic industry, serving patients side by side with some of the best plastic surgeons in the world. His protocols and research have been published in “Aesthetics Journal” magazine and he has conducted extensive treatment studies for top aesthetic companies such as Allergan, Merz, BTL, and Lumenis. He continues to attend, compete and present his results at the Anti-aging European Congress and Anti-aging World Congress, held in France and Monaco, and has presented at BTL conferences in the US and Canada. His presence at these global conferences insures that VISAGE is using state of the art procedures. He established protocols for BTL’s Radio Frequency Fat Reduction procedures, Exilis and Vanquish, that have been adopted around the world. Dr. Kacki created VISAGE Skin, both prescription and non-prescription skin care products, that are offered solely through VISAGE MedArt. He was one of the first US physicians to employ the use of Cannulas with dermal fillers, creating a comfortable, bruise-free injection in most patients.
Marek “Bohemus” Kacki, MD is an accomplished artist as well. His work has been shown in exhibitions in the US, Europe and Australia. The love of medicine and art has led to the practice of Aesthetic Medicine.
Dr. Kacki spends his personal time on a quiet Gentleman’s farm near the city center of Nashville with his wife & business partner and their 3 children. You will find him surrounded by animals; he currently has 3 horses named Natalie, Rio and Luna, and an adopted rescue dog and cat, Ripley and Willow. His art studio is located in his home, but he is often found outdoors creating sculptures, furniture or photographs. His love for science, literature, travel, art, and real food remain a passion and a healthy reason for rising each morning!
“As an Aesthetic Physician my goal is to master my techniques of facial sculpting and reinforcing classical definition of beauty. Aesthetic Medicine is my passion, fascination, perpetual amusement and frustration that lead me to this happy point of no return following 20+ years of academic and clinical Nephrology.
I have been an artist for over 4 decades with works exhibited on 3 continents. I am extremely sensitive to beauty and adherence to the canons of human visual perception.
The understanding of art form in context of Aesthetic Medicine made me profoundly intolerant of man-made distortions and violation of natural proportions and natural beauty. The same Beauty, and the only Beauty, that is well and precisely defined for us by centuries of art, history and philosophy. Beauty that has nothing to do with taste. This is the only conservative and unconditional part of me; the rest is peacefully liberal”
– Marek Kacki, M.D.
