5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Exceptional Surgeon

Dr. Sukkar is an exceptional surgeon and true artist. I couldn't be happier with my results and overall experience. From the consultation, day of surgery, and post op appointments, he and his entire staff have been wonderful. I highly recommend him to anyone considering any plastic surgery that he performs.

4 out of 5 stars Brazilian Butt Lift Revision

Perfection isn't cheap!

I'm almost a year out from my lipo 360 with BBL. He listened to what I wanted and delivered. I couldnt imagine living life again in my old body. Although his price was significantly higher (by thousands) than other renowned med center surgeons I interviewed, I am confident that it was worth every penny. The staff are professional and polite to say the least. If he didn't drain my bank account...

Dr sukkar is very informative and listened to what I wanted and he was friendly down to earth and never rushed me

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

I had an amazing experience!

There are no words to express the gratitude and joy with my results. After 10+ years of dealing with the deformity left behind from my hysterectomy I never thought I would feel normal again! Dr. Sukkar exceeded my expectations...not only did he reconstruct my mid section but even fixed me internally! Long story short my naval wasn't even connected and about 3" too low! Additionally, his...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Two C-sections, 124 Lbs, 5'6"

I researched for a very long time and I narrowed my choices to three doctors. I interviewed with those three Doctors with very similar credentials. I chose Dr. Sukkar because I felt very comfortable with him and his staff even though his price was about $700 more than one of the other Dr.s.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

39, 5'8", 154lbs, 36A/AA - Houston, TX

Dr. Sukkar set me at ease at the consultation. With a referral from a friend, I happily proceeded with Dr. Sukkar. Described my goals, and I appreciated his expertise, recommendations and the outcome. His office staff was helpful throughout the process.

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

Vaser Lipo to Anterior/posterior Flanks (Love Hanldes)

I cannot say enough about how pleased I am with Dr. Sukkar and his entire staff! I am two weeks post op from Vaser lipo to the flanks (love handles) and extremely pleased with my results. I was back to work six days post op and started exercising at two weeks. From day one, I was treated like a VIP from all the employees and probably sent over 100 emails between myself and the patient...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

25 Years Old - Houston, TX

Dr. Sukkar was amazing. He was very friendly, funny, and knowledgable. He and his awesome staff made me feel very comfortable at all times. My experience in scheduling my consultation alone is what really finalized my decision in using Dr. Sukkar. Once I came in for my consultation, everything fell into place so simply. They were able to schedule me right away. I've been even more impressed with their follow-ups and appointments post surgery. Dr. Sukkar's office knows how to provide a truly special experience.

5 out of 5 stars Ear Surgery

Otoplasty, 31 Year Old Male - Houston, TX

I was very confident of Dr. Sukkar's abilities since the initial meeting. He looked at my ears and explained to me why they were so prominent and what he will do to correct them. I didn't even go see another doctor because I knew he was the right doctor. He has the best staff too, everyone is really nice.

5 out of 5 stars Vaser Liposuction

33 Year Old Mom of 2 Kids, Wants More Toned Abs and Slimmer Hips - Houston, TX

I love everyone at Dr.Sukkars office. Make sure you get the lymphatic massages, they help with swelling.
