Plastic surgery, including both aesthetic (or cosmetic) surgery and reconstructive surgery, is a surgical speciality involving the restoration, reconstruction, or alteration of the human body.
At Amwaj Polyclinic, our aesthetic surgery specialists improve your appearance and remove signs of ageing, whilst our reconstructive surgery specialists restore normal functioning or appearance after a traumatic experience, such as burns, or illness have impaired the normal functioning of your body.
At Amwaj Polyclinic, our Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Matteo Vigo, performs both aesthetic and reconstructive surgery in our state-of-the-art facility using the latest equipment.
Our team of qualified and experienced specialists, nurses and assistants, also provides you with the best range of non-surgical aesthetic treatments that act as an alternative to surgery, whilst helping you to improve your appearance and self-confidence.
