Dr Wayne Smith is an expert in plastic, reconstructive and cosmetic surgeon, certified by both the South African and Australian Boards. He obtained his Doctorate in Medicine from the University of Pretoria, and then underwent fellowship training at the world-renowned Canniesburn Plastic Surgery Unit in Glasgow.
Dr Wayne has been practicing in the UAE since 2001 and was awarded an honorary associate professorship from the University of Al Ain in recognition of his work in training local Emirati plastic surgeons. Dr Wayne has established himself as an innovative, sensitive, and committed expert who believes in delivering superior, comprehensive results in a safe, confidential, and caring environment.
Dr Wayne believes in patient-based care, where all his patients are real stakeholders and are involved in all aspects and decision-making of their care and treatment plans.Dr Wayne has chosen to focus his practice on total body-lift and reconstructive surgery after massive weight loss. He is concerned that many patients go to plastic surgeons who lift their arms, breasts, tummy, buttocks and thighs through half a dozen operations scheduled over many years. In the vast majority of cases, Dr Wayne takes care of these problems safely in just two sessions.
Dr Wayne receives regular referrals from his colleagues to perform challenging body-contouring surgery, particularly from doctors with patients who have undergone bariatric, or obesity, surgery and who have lost a lot of weight. While their health improves from the weight loss, they might be suffering from depression or low self-esteem. Addressing their sagging skin and excess fat deposits goes a long way towards helping these patients enjoy the results of their hard work.
