Read What Our Patients Are Saying

If you are looking to have plastic surgery done, Dr. Amaka is everything you need and want! She is an excellent surgeon and even more importantly an amazing human being. She is kind, compassionate, full of integrity, and she will make you feel so comfortable even when inside you are feeling so vulnerable. Even her nurses, anesthesia and support team are top notch! Friendly, professional, and available. My entire experience was better than I could have imagined. I have no regrets. I would have traveled whatever the distance for Dr. Amaka, and you should to!

Dr. Amaka has a bedside manner like no other. I am no easy patient, but she answered all my questions and gave me a REALISTIC expectation regarding my results unlike some other surgeons. She let me know she could help me look like a better version of myself versus looking like some random IG model or someone with a body type not like mine. Again, I can’t stress enough how she set realistic expectations so I was not disappointed with my end results. I am currently 6 wpo and am extremely happy with my results. I have never in my adult life worn a two piece and summer 2022 is going to be a show skin kinda summer. I would highly recommend Dr. Amaka. Her quote was the highest that I received but her level of professionalism was also the best of all my consultations. Her office has been a pleasure to work with and her post op care has been phenomenal
