5 MINUTES WITH DR. JAFFER KHAN: Top Tips On Choosing A Cosmetic Surgeon.

1. Surgeon qualifications

Consider what qualifications your surgeon has before opting for surgery. It is important for the surgeon to be board certified in Plastic Surgery from a country of your choice where you would expect qualifications are of an acceptable standard.

2. Length of time and reputation within the community

How many years has your surgeon of choice been in practice? Do he or she have a reputation for excellence within the community? Ideally, your surgeon should reside in the country of your choice. Visiting surgeons tend to lack follow-up care unless there is a support team on the ground. “The concept of visiting surgeons always amazes me; unless there is a sub specialty offering such as revisions for Rhinoplasty, lid surgery or novel techniques. I believe if one is busy enough in one’s home country the only reason for travelling to another would be for holidays” remarks Dr. Khan.

3. Referral type

The best way of selecting your surgeon is generally through word of mouth, and/or through having spoken to someone who has had experience with the doctor. The Internet and media are sometimes simply a function of how much one is spending on social media, marketing and Google ad words.

4. Comfort level

Comfort level at the initial consultation with your surgeon should involve a feeling that there has been complete honesty in terms of patient education: pros and cons of the surgery, alternative solutions, discussion of complications and your suitability for the type of surgery that you desire. It is important that you see some before and after images in order to ensure that other’s results are in line with your own expectations.

5. Price

Undoubtedly, price is important when considering the purchase of any service. However, there are a few points to avoid. Firstly, try not to get involved in a surgery that is unaffordable and therefore puts strain on your financial resources. Secondly, avoid looking for bargains as aesthetic surgery involves potentially, your appearance and subsequent well-being.

Ultherapy in Dubai

The Only Procedure FDA – Cleared for a Non-invasive Neck, Brow and Under-Chin Lift

It’s been featured on international television shows such as Rachel Ray, The View and The Doctors. It’s been touted by big-name beauty editors from Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire, Shape and more.

It’s Ultherapy, a non-surgical treatment that uses ultrasound to actually lift loose skin on the brow, neck, and under the chin – without any downtime. And now it is offered here in Dubai at Aesthetics International.

Ultherapy Uses Ultrasound

Ultherapy is the only cosmetic procedure to use ultrasound imaging which allows us to see the layers of tissue targeted during the treatment, in order to ensure that the energy is being delivered to where it will be most optimal.

Leveraging this tried-and-true technology, we can specifically target the deep foundation below the skin, without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. After a 60 – 90 minute treatment, you will be able to return to everyday life without interruptions.

Ultherapy Naturally Creates Collagen and Elastin

Ultherapy is unique because it refreshes your collagen by jumpstarting a repair process. It relies on the body’s own regenerative process to stimulate the natural creation of new collagen and elastin. This results in an actual lift of skin overtime. In fact, the ultimate lifting takes places over 2-3 months, as tired collagen is replaced with new and stronger collagen. As this collagen building process continues, further improvements can appear up to 6 months following a procedure.

Ultherapy – Uplift not a Facelift

Ultherapy is a non-surgical option for people with mild to moderate skin laxity – those who want some lifting for skin that has lost elasticity, but are not ready for surgery, either mentally, financially or logistically. It is also a good option for those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.

Ask us if Ultherapy is right for you

If you are looking for a lift to counter the effects that gravity takes over time, it may just be the treatment you’ve been waiting for.
