Dr Amira Sanki

“Plastic surgery is centred on the principle of offering the highest level of surgical technique to achieve the best functional and cosmetic outcome. I hope to extend this ideal to offer 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 consultation to patients requiring a major reconstructive procedure after cancer surgery, are treated with respect.”
