Dr Amira Sanki

Dr Amira Sanki is a principle surgeon at Southern Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Her main fields of interest are body contouring after massive weight loss or pregnancy, breast surgery and facial plastic surgery.

The first principle of plastic surgery is to offer the highest level of surgical technique to achieve the best functional and cosmetic outcome. I hope to extend this ideal to offering my patients the best care throughout their treatment. A good surgeon has the training and experience to recommend the most appropriate surgery for their patients. They have the technical skills to achieve what their patients seek. While I offer the highest standards of surgical expertise, I also give my patients the support and understanding that we all need when we have a medical problem. All of my patients, from those seeking a skin care consult to patients requiring a major cosmetic procedure after massive weight loss surgery, are treated with respect.
