Clinical Experience

Unhappiness with one’s appearance or living with physical imperfections can affect the very meaning of human identity, psychology and quality of life. Plastic surgery to restore proper physiological function or enhance aesthetic appeal can as a result have far reaching benefits including improvement of social and psychological health.

Recognising that Plastic surgery brings together detailed knowledge of human anatomy and development, a diversity of skills, precision and technological advances, as well as artistic sensitivity, Mr Ghanem has pursued a rigorous and unique professional and academic background to equip him with the breadth of skills and aesthetic sensitivity to deliver the results you desire.
