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.

I had breast augmentation and uplift in May 2017. I have pectus excavatum (large hollow in chest) which has greatly affected my confidence throughout my adult life. Wearing a bra was so uncomfortable and I had to keep adjusting myself. I would never wear swimwear in public and I couldn’t wear clothes that had a v neck. At the age of 50 I decided I had to do something so made an appointment to see Lisa Sacks. A few months later I had surgery and initially was very pleased with the results. Unfortunately I developed capsular contracture which is very uncommon and had to have further surgery in August 2018. Throughout the whole process Lisa was so supportive. She explained everything so well and answered all my questions and reassured me. I am over the moon after the second surgery. I am so pleased with the results and it has given me a new found confidence. It was definitely worth the stress and cost. If you are thinking of having surgery and are looking for a surgeon I highly recommend Lisa Sacks.


I had a rhinoplasty when I was 67. I had always had a prominent nose in adult life but, for various reasons, my nose had become distorted making it difficult to breathe through one nostril, particularly when I lay down. My profile was also very different viewed from each side. Consultations with Miss Sacks were informative, reassuring, easy and friendly. Being able to see computer generated images of a straightened, slightly less prominent nose was very helpful and convinced me to go forward with the operation. Other than some considerable bleeding into the sinus area there was very little discomfort after the first 12 hours post-op. The subsequent bruising lasted only about 2 weeks. The re-constructed shape is strong and perfect for my face. Five years later I am still able to breathe easily and am delighted with the outcome. The small amount of discomfort and the expense was worth it all.


Lisa has changed my life, for many years I had been very self conscious of what I looked like ‘down there’ and had thought about getting labiaplasty many times before I finally plucked up the courage to book a consultation. I was embarrassed and actually felt like I was being a drama queen- why couldn’t I just be happy and confident with what my vagina looked like?! Straight away Lisa put me at ease, I explained to her my reasons why, both for the physical appearance and because it caused discomfort. Lisa shown me photos of work she had done and eased my anxiety. I had a few consultations with Lisa before the surgery and went through exactly what I hope did to achieve. On the day of surgery she came and saw me, including my mother who has also attended. I was grateful for Lisa as she spoke to my mother and eased her anxiety that I was doing this for the right reasons. When I woke up from surgery I only had slight discomfort when going to the toilet, I was allowed to leave the same day. She gave me very strict instructions on the recovery process and kept in contact with me via phone. I’m now 5 months post surgery and the results are far better than I ever imagined. I only experienced slight discomfort in the first two weeks, after that I just ensured to take it easy. This surgery and Lisa have changed my life. I’m more confident, comfortable and overall happier in my life because of it. Which admittedly may sound dramatic but this has honestly been a saving grace, I would spend hours worrying over the appearance, never allowing partners to see it, avoided situations where it would be seen (I’ve always wanted to get a wax!). Now I don’t even think twice about it. Lisa is professional, caring and overall a very good doctor.


I am 42, 5ft2 and have had 6 children. My youngest child was 5 at the time of my surgery. I have had 4 natural births and 2 Caesarean sections. I had all 6 children in 9 years. My tummy had large muscle separation and with my caesarean scar too, I disliked the way I looked. As my family was complete, I looked into having a tummy tuck. I went to see four different surgeons between Bath and London but, found Lisa Sacks in Bristol my preferred choice (even though the location is not near to my home). She has a warmth and understanding and her professionalism is second to none. With regards to the procedure, the duty of care shown to me by ALL of the staff at Nuffield Hospital was exemplary. Lisa and her team provided me with exceptional after care, even to the point where I still visit on an annual basis three years on from the surgery. I am delighted with the result. I feel younger, sexier, lighter and most of all, happy with the way I look. A year ago, I went on to have a breast reduction through Lisa too. Needless to say, I’m overjoyed with the results and am even in bikinis. No more wired bras required or ‘muffin top’ anymore!
