About

Lisa Sacks is a well respected consultant plastic and reconstructive surgeon based in Bristol. She is also an internationally recognized sculptor.

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.

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.

Having been under the care of Lisa I would not go anywhere else. She is kind, caring, professional, approachable and most of all she listens. Lisa is dedicated to achieving what you want but will be honest about any limitations that might require a compromise. Once you are her patient you have someone who will be there for you for the lifetime of your procedure and beyond. This is invaluable. She has also built an excellent team around her. I am sure you could find your procedure cheaper but you will not get better value than Lisa anywhere. I thoroughly recommend her.

I am now 38 and it is now almost 10 years from my first surgery and it is still hard to put in to words how much it has transformed my life. After losing 105 lbs I was left with loose skin on my abdomen and low hanging breasts. The surgery I under went was a vertical scar breast operation tummy tuck and back lift. I did not have the tummy tuck and back lift at the same time and I am very glad of this, as although it spread my total surgeries out over a longer period I was actually able to rest, recover more easily as I was not laying on my wounds! At the age of 28 and after the achievement of losing so much weight I should have been brimming with confidence, however, the loose skin I was left with meant that I was still unhappy with my body, particularly when wearing tighter fitting clothes, swimsuits or being naked. After the surgery, however, I am body confident, wearing whatever clothes I want including my now extensive collection of bikinis! I am more confident socially as I do not feel self conscious about my body and what people might think of it. It has also helped with continuing my healthy lifestyle as now when I exercise and am active I am actually able to see the results and no longer think that it was pointless as no matter what I did I would not be able to rectify my loose skin!

My friend has recommended me Lisa Sacks but I did my own research and went ahead with the consultation. Both Liana and Lisa were so approachable and helpful when responding to my questions and made me feel at ease from the get go. When meeting Lisa she was so warm and welcoming and so gentle towards me, I immediately knew I wanted her to complete my surgery. Lisa gave me all required information pros and cons so I could make an informed decision myself. Together - we decided on 300cc. I was a 32B/C and my end goal was to be a 32E. The day of the surgery obviously very nervous but Lisa instantly put me at ease as did the staff at Nuffield Health. Following the surgery I had a lovely gift and card from Lisa wishing me well, which was such a lovely gesture! Lisa herself came to visit me the next day to check on me and remove the drains herself which I really liked as put my trust in her solely. The after care was absolutely amazing! I couldn’t be more thankful to Lisa for giving me her personal number for a week and asking my every couple of days how I was, it reassured me and my mum completely. 3 months now on have 3 checks up at 1 week 3 weeks and 12 weeks! I am healing well, the scars are so minimal I can hardly see them! Absolutely over the moon with my new breast and I feel amazing within myself! The difference it has made to my confidence is beyond believable! I feel much more confident in social situations on holidays and most of all with my partner!! I am now wearing a 32E bra!!

I’m 41, 3 children, all bf. I hated how my boobs looked. I had an uplift with implant. Lisa and her team are absolutely incredible. V thorough consultation process and excellent aftercare. A year on, scars are minimal, boobs look great-real, natural. I feel much more confident. Clothes fit better. I fill my bras properly! I love wearing swimwear again. It’s definitely raised my confidence.

I am very happy I had my surgery done with Lisa she is such an amazing women. I am so happy with my results and my recovery. I am 23 years old an decided to have my breasts done due to issues with my confidence. After a long time thinking I am so so happy I went for it! It has massively improved my confidence! I no longer worry about putting on a bikini or wearing a top that I can’t wear a bra with! I went from a B to a DD and that size is perfect, Lisa made me look so natural that no one even can even tell that I have had it done, which is great! Once the recovery was over they just feel like my own, I forget I have even had it done and I cannot remember what my old body looks like. They have given my body some curve and I feel a lot more feminine! I am so lucky to have loved the experience and my results, I wouldn’t go to anyone else.

Whilst doing my research to find what I considered was the best surgeon to perform my operation, I was drawn to Lisa Sacks through the style and credentials of her website. I had my breast reduction operation with Lisa in November 2015 and have never looked back. Lisa is a very caring and dedicated surgeon and always makes time to see you should you require it. The aftercare that she provides is second to none and she will see you as many times after the operation as is required. Lisa is not only interested in whatever treatment she is providing but she is also interested in you as a person and is warm and friendly at every appointment. The operation went very well and the results were amazing. My life has changed drastically since having my breast reduction. I am extremely pleased with the shape of my new breasts and feel a lot more confident in every aspect. I still wear the same size tops but they fit so much better with no pulling! I can wear clothing that doesn't require any support and I have a much wider choice with the types of clothing I can wear now. I used to get quite a lot of headaches stemming mainly from my neck and now realise that the extra weight in my breasts was actually causing them. Following my operation, my niece saw the results and was so impressed with the results that within a year had booked in with Lisa to have her own breast reduction operation. Lisa Sacks is everything you would want in a surgeon and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone thinking of having life changing surgery.

I had labia majora surgery at the age of 28 after having all my children. Lisa was brilliant! Very friendly and made me feel comfortable and relaxed. Everything was explained and all my questioned answered. The procedure was fine and was less painful than I had anticipated. I am very happy with my results and would defiantly recommend Lisa. Having a female surgeon was important to me and I found that many surgeons performed labia minora but not labia majora surgery. Since the procedure I feel much more confident and happy and feel it was worth the money.

I never imagined I would get a procedure done but after having weight changes and children I looked into a breast reduction and uplift. I was very nervous leading up to the surgery but Lisa was very supportive and listened to my needs. Having a chance to speak with previous patients who had similar procedures really helped. The Nuffield Hospital in Bristol where I had my surgery was fantastic and felt like a luxury hotel! I feel much more comfortable now and can buy nice clothes more easily. The procedure has improved my confidence and ability to exercise in comfort beyond my expectations. I cannot recommend Lisa enough and I'm so glad I went through with the surgery.

Tummy Tuck - Lisa Sacks - the best thing I ever did! I’m 41 and had thought about a Tummy Tuck / Abdominoplasty procedure for some time after having my daughter 8 years ago. I’d put on 3 stone after my daughter and lost almost all of the weight then hired a personal trainer to tone up and lose the last of it which stubbornly decided to stay round my tummy. I had some stretch marks and always had a pot belly no matter how hard I worked out at the gym. I tried reducing carbs and eating healthy but could never get rid of the excess skin I had remaining. In addition, I’d suffered with lower back problems and couldn’t seem to strengthen my core no matter what I did. I started to talk to some friends and a friend of mine recommended talking to Lisa for an initial consultation. My interaction with Lisa was amazing. She is a lovely person and I felt like I’d known her forever. She was honest and open about what the procedure entailed and what the risks and cons were. Lisa explained I had a gap in between my tummy muscles and these would be ‘put back together’ as well as excess skin removed. I was nervous but Lisa & her team put me at complete ease and after booking myself in for the procedure I was very excited about the results. I’d been given the numbers of some past patients to get an independent view of before & after. The result is amazing - I literally have the tummy I am proud to show off. My belly button is like new, stretch marks have gone and I have a tight set of core muscles. I am back at the gym and now just enhancing my tummy with exercise. The biggest result is I have no back pain at all. The recovery time feels like a long time but is considerably short considering I will continue to look amazing if I maintain my weight, diet and exercise which I plan to. Lisa is like a friend - her aftercare is genuinely amazing. She texts and keeps in touch to see how I’m getting on and I have follow up appointments in the diary to check how I am doing. I would recommend the procedure to any woman who is considering it and most definitely with Lisa Sacks. She may have a long waiting list but there’s a reason - she’s amazing and it’s worth the wait!
