IF YOU ARE A MEMBER OF THE PRESS THEN PLEASE DON’T HESITATE TO CONTACT ME IF YOU WOULD LIKE AN INTERVIEW. I AM ALWAYS DELIGHTED TO TALK TO THE MEDIA – WHETHER IT’S RELATED TO A NEWS STORY, TRENDS IN SURGERY OR MORE SPECIFIC CONTENT SUCH AS HOW TO REMOVE EYE BAGS OR THE BEST TREATMENT FOR LIFTING A NECK
Sterimedix, a UK medical device company, talk about their collaboration with Mr Olivier Amar in creating The GTI Cannula, ‘a product that can perform subcision without the unpleasant after-effects of traditional methods.’
Clinical trials have demonstrated that the GTI Cannula (grooved tipped injection cannula) successfully disrupts scar tissue strands, without the traumatic effects of a blade under the skin. After breaking up the scar tissue, filler is injected into the space that’s been created to support and smooth the skin surface. It can also be used for PRP skin rejuvenation procedures and nano-fat injections.

Mr Olivier Amar was featured in the Sunday Telegraph’s Innovate Healthcare and Specialist Clinics section, in New Year, New Beginnings.
One of the more common approaches now is to use a technique called subcision. This involves the cutting of the fibrous scar tissue under the skin to release the depression on the skin surface, followed by the injection of dermal filler or nano-fat to fill the space created by the cutting of the scar tissue. The final results can be very good but the methods for cutting the scar tissue can be uncomfortable and leave bruising
In response to the challenge Sterimedix, a UK medical device company, and a plastic surgeon in London, Dr Olivier Amar, have between them created a product that can perform subcision without the unpleasant after-effects of traditional methods.
Mr Olivier Amar was featured in the MailOnline in a feature titled ‘Risk-free mouth-swab DNA test reveals if surgery patients are at risk of scarring badly after an operation’. Interviewed by Mail on Sunday Health Editor Barney Calman.
‘The idea is to offer this to patients before they choose to undergo an operation,’ said London-based plastic surgeon Mr Olivier Amar, the first to offer the test in the UK.
‘This way, we will be able to monitor the wound as it heals. If it looks like a raised keloid scar is developing, there are steps we can take to minimise the problem. Trying to tackle a keloid scar after it has developed is very difficult, and may involve further surgery.’
Mr Olivier Amar was featured in the MailOnline in a feature titled “Cheat your way to skin as smooth as a baby’s: The New science of a perfect complexion”. Award-winning beauty journalist Alice Hart-Davis described her PRP treatment with Mr Olivier Amar.
An increasingly popular way of improving the texture of your skin is with injections of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) — plasma taken from your own blood.
You may have heard this called a Dracula Facial or the Vampire Facelift.
Verdict: Impressive. A month later, the treated area looks softer, clearer and smoother.
‘Would YOU brave the new Botox gun?’ Interviewed by award-winning beauty journalist, Alice Hart-Davis
Rather than sending one piercing shot of fluid into the body, the Enerjet blasts 100 microscopically small shots of liquid — perhaps a PRP mixture, perhaps a dilute form of hyaluronic acid gel, both of have skin-conditioning benefits — into the skin, to lodge a couple of millimetres below the surface more precisely than any needle could deliver it.
We are delighted that Mr Olivier Amar was featured in the Tatler Beauty & Cosmetic Surgery Guide 2018 in a feature titled “How to get a six-pack”.
At the age of 32, after rigorous diet and exercise regimes achieved a 2-stone weight loss but not the desired six-pack, Matthew was told by his trainer that the only way he would be able to get rid of the loose skin around his stomach was with cosmetic surgery.
‘It was, in every sense, an astonishingly slick operation.
This is why you pay for a proper surgeon practising at a proper clinic with a proper team behind them. Believe me, I did my research and not everyone’s experience was as smooth as mine.’
Award winning journalist Kate Shapland described her reasons for opting for upper blepharoplasty surgery with Mr Olivier Amar. Featured in Red magazine in the masterclass section under droopy eyelids.
The most significant results are gained with surgery, as beauty journalist Kate Shapland found:
‘My eyelids had got very droopy, to the point where it was impossible to wear make-up and it was really ageing me.
So I opted for surgery with Olivier Amar at his Sloane Street Clinic. I was in for a morning and had a general anaesthetic (although sedation is an option). The initial swelling was shocking I won’t lie, the there was no bruising or pain. It took eight months to feel completely normal again, but it transformed my face and confidence’.
Mr Olivier Amar was featured in The Times in a feature titled “Look good for your age: What the experts swear by”. Interviewed by award-winning beauty journalist Alice Hart-Davis.

Improving skin quality :
“Platelet-Rich Plasma treatment (PRP), also known as the vampire facial, is growing in popularity. This involves plasma taken from a vial of your own blood being injected back into your face.”
“It sounds gruesome, but the growth factors in it make older skin act like younger skin and look better too.”
We are delighted that Mr Olivier Amar was featured in The Times in a feature titled “Meet the doctors behind the boom in male cosmetic surgery”.
Olivier Amar has a deep suntan from kitesurfing, offsetting his brilliant white teeth, and he fits Macron-neat in his dark blue suit. He is, like his father before him, a cosmetic surgeon at the top of his game. Amar treats actors, artists, footballers, financiers and – quelle surprise – politicians. (He won’t tell me of which persuasion – “confidentiality”) And they come for Botox, fat transfers, dermal fillers, blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), “CoolSculpting” (cryolipolysis or fat freezing), liposuction, laser removal of thread veins, rhinoplasty (nose jobs) and gynecomastia (removal of “moobs”).
Mr Olivier Amar was featured in The Mail on Sunday’s Healthy Living section in the feature title – “Yes, you can get rid of your under eye bag”
“For a long-term solution Mr Amar says blepharoplasty, an eye-lift operation, is one of the most popular rejuvenation procedures for men and women.
It’s for people who want to look refreshed, as if they enjoy good sleep every night and are just back from a summer holiday.”
The Sloan Magazine approached Mr Olivier Amar for his insight into “A Natural Approach to Aesthetics”.
Olivier Amar is one of the UK’s leading consultant plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgeons with more than 15 years’ experience. Here he discusses taking a natural approach to aesthetics.
We all age but it is how we age that is most important to me. Ageing does not happen evenly across the years, it can creep up on us. Perhaps you have been through life challenges, a bereavement or even sudden weight loss – and when it does happen, it can affect even the most beautiful person.
Mr Olivier Amar described the Platelet Rich Plasma treatment for The Sunday Times
For a smooth complexion add on Platelet Rich Plasma, also known as PRP or the vampire facial.
A small amount of blood is drawn and then the platelet-rich plasma, which contains growth factors (the proteins and hormones that tell your skin to heal), is separated out in a centrifuge.After microneedling, this is injected back into your skin to promote collagen production and faster healing. You’ll be red for about a day.
Recently we had the pleasure of gracing the airwaves on a show called ‘The Inevitable’ on BBC Radio 4.

We are encouraged to face the inevitable, bow to it, accept it. In this witty and personal exploration, the writer, poet, and professor of Modern Languages at Oxford University, Patrick McGuinness, delves behind the rhetoric to explore just what is inevitable.
Mr Olivier Amar was featured in The Huffington Post in a beauty feature about ‘how to get rid of under eye bags and dark circles’
In the FAMI technique, stem cells are collected from fat tissue and then injected into the face under local anaesthetic.
One of the pioneers of the treatment, and the surgeon who performed my procedure, Dr Olivier Amar from London’s Sloan Street Clinic, told HuffPost UK Style: “This is a minimally invasive procedure and much more effective and natural than using fillers.”
We are delighted that Mr Olivier Amar was featured in the Tatler BEAUTY & cosmetic SURGERY GUIDE 2015 in ‘Best for Eyes’ category. Interviewed by former beauty director of Tatler, Olivia Falcon.
Surgery is in Mr Amar’s blood – both his father and grandfather were well-respected surgeons. His father is the creator of the Fat Autograft Muscle Injection (FAMI) technique, a non-surgical facelift that uses stem cells harvested from the patient’s own fat.
Passionate and French (from sunny Marseille rather than frosty Paris), he’s suave yet serious, and has a very forward-thinking approach to tired eyes: he looks at the position of your eyebrows, the fullness of your temples and situation of your cheekbones to tighten muscles and restore volume.
Mr Olivier Amar was featured in the MailOnline in a beauty feature about fat transfer the face
After watching a TV programme about botched surgery (fat transfer was initially developed to correct cosmetic surgery mistakes), she booked in to see Dr Olivier Amar at his Sloan Street Clinic.
Before performing the neck and eyelid lift, Dr Amar made a fine incision into Sandra’s stomach to take the fat cells that were then purified and injected into her chin, neck and her eyes to contour and reshape her face. He estimates 100ml of fat was transferred – the size of a large perfume bottle.
‘Over ten years I might spend thousands of pounds on face creams that wouldn’t have nearly the same effect,’ says Sandra.
Mr Olivier Amar was featured in the Tatler BEAUTY & cosmetic SURGERY GUIDE 2012 in ‘Best for Liposuction’ category. Interviewed by former beauty director of Tatler, Olivia Falcon.
