Plastic Surgery in Dubai

Plastic surgery is a booming industry in Dubai today, which with the completion of the second Healthcare City is aimed to become one of the main medical services that can be obtained in Dubai along with reconstructive surgery. With the widening possibilities in terms of plastic surgery, an incredible number of men and women decide to go under the knife every year and considering the highly expensive costs in Western Europe, US and Australia, Dubai has now a great chance, to become a major destination of patients, arriving to enjoy their holidays while recovering from plastic surgery.


Going on holiday, while also undergoing plastic surgery operations is the common way for many to go on holiday who also have the chance for doing so. With the help of international travel insurances, which can as well cover medical services abroad, most people spend their money freely in Dubai, knowing that they will receive back a great deal of the money they have paid later on. This is another possibility that makes the potential of Dubai, being a centre for aesthetic surgery even bigger. Paired up with great international clinics and tax-free prices, the emirate has never had a better chance than these years.

Dubai today houses more than 150 medical facilities in its area, out of which, 100 are located in the area of the Healthcare City 1. These instalments include medical institutions, clinics, hospitals, medical colleges and schools. Other important hospital of Dubai is the American Hospital, where all the American expats go and that also has its department of aesthetic surgery. Some of the biggest plastic surgery clinics are located in the area of the Healthcare City. These include the American British Surgical and Medical Centre, which is the trendiest clinic of Dubai, thanks to its quality and fame of doctors (MDs).

Another well-respected clinic is the London Centre for Aesthetic Surgery, which has its practice both in London and in Dubai, paired up with professional surgeons with high experience. The twin doctors, leading LCAS have already worked on the majority of British and a great deal of American stars and actors are included in their clientele. ABSAMS on the other hand works with the star surgeons who practice in Hollywood and Beverly Hills, where perfection is almost a must and not only a privilege. Other medical centres as Cocoona practice in the downtown area of Dubai, in their own clinics offering a huge range of aesthetic and reconstructive surgery services.

Of course, Dubai also had a great deal of criticism, when it started to open its first plastic surgeries, because of all the accidents that happened because of untrained staff and even untrained doctors. These years, plastic surgery is strictly controlled by the Ministry of Health of Dubai and it is ensured that all its bigger clinics are operating with regards to the requirements in terms of certificate, experience, staff and the necessary tools.

When patients arrive in Dubai to undergo plastic surgery, they must pay a special attention on which surgery they choose after the consultations. We suggest everyone to visit multiple surgeries before deciding. Another important factor is, to keep the diet and required healthy lifestyle before and after surgery. Dubai plastic surgeon warn tourists not to travel after surgery and stay in Dubai at least for a week more, to ensure the healthy healing of any wounds. Therefore, if you plan to undergo surgery in Dubai, we suggest you to have at least a month free for you to prepare and to heal properly.
