Her career as a sculptor began more than 2 decades before she finally qualified as a specialist plastic surgeon (Consultant Surgeon for more than 23 years). This allowed her finely honed skills as a sculptor of the human form to contribute to her genuine sense of aesthetics. It is this skill that she brings to you when she analyses your area of concern before deciding to operate. She is trained in every area of plastic surgery and reconstructive and aesthetic surgery, and now devotes herself almost entirely to to Aesthetic Surgery – surgery to create beauty and harmony.
Lisa trained medically and surgically in South Africa, Brazil and Belgium. She worked as specialist in the famous Baragwanath Hospital in Soweto, near Johannesburg, South Africa. She trained artistically in South Africa and Italy. She settled in the UK in 1996, working as an NHS consultant for nearly a decade. She left the NHS, deciding to work in full-time, private practice, enabling her to offer you, as her patient, a high level of personalized care and treatment. She has created a completely independent practice allowing her to deliver a level of care that she herself would be happy to receive as a patient.
Conducting herself in an ethical and caring way is of the utmost importance to her. Patient satisfaction is paramount and this is why she will look after you, herself, on every step of your treatment journey.
You will not be rushed into any decision to have an operation. You will not be offered any incentives nor inducements to persuade you to have surgery. There are no special offers, nor raffles to be won. There are no time constraints impeding you from making the correct decision. Lisa Sacks will not perform any operation on you that she herself doesn’t believe in. Nor will she operate on you if she feels it will not benefit you in the long term. Sometimes, she recognizes that the best decision is NOT to operate.
Her practice has a well earned reputation for providing exceptional pre and post-operative care and support. Attention to detail and building close relationships with patients are her priorities. Long term follow up care is a very important to her as it ensures her continual striving for excellence in her surgical techniques and outcomes.
She operates in Bristol, in both the Nuffield and Spire Hospitals where her own skilled, professional team will take care of you. She works with highly qualified and expert cardiac anaesthetists who also work regularly in intensive care, thus ensuring your total confidence in the skill and training in every member of her medical team. A combination of all these factors means that our patients have the reassurance of knowing they are in safe hands. Many of our patients return to us again and again, and are happy to refer friends and relatives to us. This demonstrates that this practice enjoy high levels of patient satisfaction and loyalty.
