Doctor Roger Amar

Dr Roger Amar

A native of France, Dr. Roger Amar is a plastic surgeon based in the heart of Spain’s Costa del Sol.

Roger Amar graduated as Doctor of Medicine at Paris University, France, with excellent academic records. Dr. Amar established the Amar Clinic in Marbella, Spain in 2002. His extensive experience has allowed him to participate in numerous international medical conventions.

Using his expertise and experience in plastic and reconstructive surgery and aesthetic medicine, Dr. Amar has spent the last 15 years developing one of today’s most sophisticated and innovative fat grafting techniques for facial reconstruction, reshaping and rejuvenation with minimally invasive surgery. Dr. Amar gave this new fat-grafting technique the FAMI – Fat Autograft Muscle Injection.

Focusing on the use of cellular grafts using autologous adult stem cells, FAMI stands today as one of the most advanced fat-grafting techniques with proven, long-lasting results. Based on a deep knowledge and understanding of the human anatomy, FAMI represents a complex, but non invasive surgical procedure, while appearing simple and easy to understand to the patient.

The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis with local anesthesia. During the procedure, the adult stem cells are extracted with fatty tissue through gentle liposuction before being separated and purified in a centrifuge.

Dr. Amar uses his specially designed and patented cannulaes to graft the autologous adult stem cells into specific areas of the muscle and bone surfaces. FAMI corrects, rejuvenates, and restores the shape and the contours of the face, achieving the results of a traditional face-lift without the need for incisions or sutures.

AMAR Charitable Foundation
In addition to his incredible medical work, Dr. Roger Amar created the AMAR Charitable Foundation in 2008.
The AMAR Charitable Foundation is dedicated to the treatment of disfigured people all over the world with congenital or acquired deformities; or patients with post surgical sequels or with deformities related to age with the use of Dr. Roger AMAR’s FAMI technique.
Suitable candidates for this program can apply directly at the AMAR Clinic in Marbella, Spain. Treatments can be provided to charity projects and operated by teams trained by Dr. Roger Amar and/or his scholars from all over the world.
