Raina Zarb Adami founded The Academy of Aesthetic Excellence and Aesthetic Virtue in 2010.
After qualifying as a doctor from the University of Malta in 2004 and completing her foundation years on the island, Raina moved to Sydney, where she gained post-graduate experience in general and plastic surgery. She became a member of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in 2008.
Raina’s approach to non-invasive facial rejuvenation and sculpting is unrivalled. She brings passion for quality to a cosmetic practice where integrity, intelligence and strive for perfection flourish. Her artistic eye complements a thorough scientific and medical expertise. She is an advanced practitioner with an integrated approach using toxins, fillers, chemical peels and various other skin treatments for facial rejuvenation and enhancement.
She allows plenty of time for discussion, and discourages patients from taking rushed decisions. She is known to turn away patients if she feels that they would not benefit from the cosmetic intervention in question or if they happen to already look lovely enough! True to the Hippocratic oath the patient’s best interests, safety and concerns are always her top priority.
Her dedication towards the profession, her honesty and her thoroughness put even the most agitated patients at ease. Her approachable demeanour and expertise allow for a knowledgeable yet comfortable environment for individualised treatment.
Raina continues to attend and present at numerous national and international conferences. She thus remains at the forefront of evolving trends in aesthetic medicine. Through The Academy of Aesthetic Excellence, she has successfully trained many practitioners in cosmetic procedures, and is a certified lecturer on the subject. As Aesthetic Virtue’s Medical Director, she ensures that all doctors are very well trained and experienced, in order to do deliver an excellent service to our patient.
She is currently a plastic surgery trainee at Addenbrooke’s Hopsital in Cambridge, while also completing medical research. She is a trustee with the charity organisation RAFT (Restoration of Appearance and Function Trust) – a charity that funds medical research pertaining to reconstructive plastic surgery.
