Dr. Sam Sukkar Houston Plastic Surgeon

Meet Your Aesthetic Needs

Dr. Sukkar has built a reputation as an honest, informative practitioner with not only the skill and background to perform the highest quality of surgical and non-surgical procedures, but the approachability and empathy of a trusted advisor in your quest to meet your aesthetic needs.

Dr. Sam Sukkar

FOUNDER & MEDICAL DIRECTOR

Dr. Sukkar strives to develop a candid, instructive and, above all, supportive rapport with each individual patient. His patients choose him because they know he constantly looks out for them and strives to apply the best approach to meet their needs and expectations.

Much of our clientele comes to us via word of mouth, and we sincerely appreciate our patients’ tendency to refer friends and family members to our practice. Rather than selling one procedure or another, Dr. Sukkar outlines the advantages and disadvantages of each possible option, allowing the patient to make an informed decision. If your best option happens to involve a treatment or procedure not offered at our practice, you can trust him to inform you of that option and refer you to the physician or practitioner who can provide it. An example of this would be a patient who is above their ideal weight and not ready for surgery- in this case a referral to our weight loss center or a Bariatric Center might be initiated.

Dr. Sukkar is also a board-certified Houston plastic surgeon, which signifies that he consistently meets high standards of safety, results, and ethics. We know it can be tricky choosing between all the board-certified plastic surgeons, plastic surgeons, and cosmetic surgeons in our area as the internet tends to level the playing field for less experienced surgeons. Dr. Sukkar is proud to be a board-certified plastic surgeon because it offers extra peace of mind to our patients. His dedication to Patient Safety is part of the reason he was invited to serve on the patient safety committee for The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).
