She also completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Aesthetic Surgery and an MSc in Aesthetic Surgery, both with distinction from the University of London/ Queen Mary and Westfield College. After practicing as a specialist plastic surgeon in Iraq, Dr Sahar moved to the UAE in 1999 and has worked at various hospitals, mainly in Dubai, since then.
Dr Sahar is known for the amount of time she spends with each patient, starting with caring, individualized attention and a transparent consultation where she listens to the patients’ needs, educating them on all available surgical and non-surgical alternatives. She is with her patients during every step of the recovery period to ensure their needs are being met and to meet her ethical commitment and care towards her patient for a very long time.
Dr Sahar is one of the first plastic surgeons in the region to incorporate adipose-derived stem cells (stem cells from your own unwanted fat tissue) for breast, body and face, and to treat many skin problems.
She likes to master all advanced technologies in her field to offer her patients the best available option to optimise the aesthetic outcome. For example, while some surgeons simply offer liposuction, Dr Sahar has mastered newer techniques assisted by various tools including lasers; ultrasound (vaser); radiofrequency (Bodytite), compressed air (Nutational Infrasonic Liposculpture); radiofrequency-plasma combination (J-Plasty); and water-technology (BodyJet).
Her other focus areas include aesthetic breast surgeries, cosmetic gynaecology, mommy makeovers, surgical and non-surgical facial rejuvenation, fat transfer and body contouring – including makeovers after massive weight loss.
Dr Sahar speaks Arabic and English.
