Amid increasing popularity to look perfect, younger or simply enhance one’s beauty in today’s social media savvy society, minor Aesthetic tweaks with safe products and quality treatments are greatly boosting the self-esteem of individuals, say leading aesthetic medicine and cosmetic surgery experts in the region.
Both surgical and non-surgical aesthetic treatments, according to the experts, are witnessing a rise in demand in the region. While the surgical procedures include facelift, breast augmentation, laser liposuction, tummy tuck, rhinoplasty, fat transfer with stem cells and more, the non-invasive treatments include Botox, fillers, skin rejuvenation, body contouring, wellness and functional medicine, hair restoration and more.
Aesthetica Clinic’s Medical Director Dr Mario Russo said, “Paramount in cosmetic surgery is the consultation. The surgeon meets the client and takes them through the procedure, how this might meet their expectations and ultimately identify the right procedure to suit their needs. The consultation should focus mainly on the importance of achieving proportional results that meet the patient’s expectations.”
Aesthetica Clinic — one of the leaders in Dubai in its segment with latest innovations in aesthetic medicine and Aesthetic surgery — uses premium and FDA-approved equipment and devices. The protocols are prepared by a medical expert committee and tested extensively to ensure maximum safety and results for the patients.
“The basis of successful cosmetic treatment is good communication and expectation management between the doctors and the clients. The doctor should always listen to what the client wants to achieve, and then they can advise on the best possible treatments for the desired result,” said Dr Pier Francesco Mancini, plastic and aesthetic surgery specialist at the Aesthetica Clinic.
“At Aesthetica Clinic, all procedures are customised and built around each client’s expectations, profile, body and skin type and medical condition. The estimate is always shared with the patients before-hand,” Mancini added.
Aesthetica Clinic is part of the Avivo Group – the fastest growing medical network across the UAE and Kuwait, encompassing hospitals, medical centres, speciality centres and diagnostic centres.
“Physical attractiveness relates strongly and positively towards increased self-confidence. Aesthetic treatments provide everyone with a chance to enhance their beauty, which in turn helps them uplift their psychological well-being. But this does not mean that people should have unrealistic expectations from cosmetic treatments as this would just reverse the entire aim of why aesthetics exist,” said Avivo Group Chief Executive Officer Dr. Dilshaad Ali.
Dr. Jay Calvert, Specialist Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon at Aesthetica Clinic, said, “These days everyone has the right to make an informed decision and consent to any treatments we offer as this will guarantee maximisation of results and exceeded expectations. The wow factor adds to the invaluable trust between doctors and their patients.”
People looking for aesthetic and cosmetic surgery must do their research before going for the medical procedure and price should not be the key deciding factor. It is preferable to consult a few surgeons, take recommendations from friends and look for Board Certified Specialists.
“Always check what is included in your package. Aftercare is also important. A good tip is to make sure that you have a checklist. Look for a clinic that offers a dedicated patient coordinator who is around to help you with any queries, and all follow-up appointments are attended by your surgeon,” said Dr. Enrico Robotti, another Consultant Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon at the Aesthetica Clinic.
