Dubai is considered the Beverly Hills of the Middle East. Surprisingly, the global economic slowdown has not affected the multi-billion-dollar industry of tummy tucks and facelifts in the UAE. In fact, the plastic surgery business is seeing a boom in the UAE as people rush to Dubai to get their plastic surgeries done, especially in summer. Some plastic surgery procedures have become a trend in Dubai and have seen a drastic rise in demand. 

In this blog, we will discuss the six most common trends seen in Dubai, particularly in summer.

Plastic Surgery

What do the Stats Say?

Whatever we have mentioned above is supported by some interesting statistics. According to a study, there is only one plastic surgeon for 50,000 people in the US, one for every 44,000 in Brazil, and one for every 18,000 in Dubai! 103 out of the 150 members of The Emirates Plastic Surgery Society practice in Dubai, including visiting surgeons. Cosmetic surgeons from all over the world visit Dubai to practice in the region that is considered the hub of cosmetic surgeries. 

Common Summer Trends in Dubai

While the most popular procedures are still liposuction and rhinoplasty, with the summer upon us, here are six trends that have been picking up in the business of plastic surgery

  • The Mommy Makeover

Even with the best diet and exercise regimen, it is tough for new moms to lose excess belly fat or re-tighten abdominal muscles after childbirth. Therefore, they opt for procedures such as tummy tucks and liposuction, breast lift, or even breast reduction to restore their pre-pregnancy appearance. All these procedures are collectively a part of a mommy makeover.

  • Eyelid Surgery 

If you want to get rid of the droopy eyelids that hinder your vision, this surgery is for you. Also known as blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery is a cosmetic procedure that removes or tightens the loose skin around the upper or lower eyelids. This surgery can also alter the shape of the eye, which seems to be a popular demand among Asian women.

  • Lipo Structuring 

As you grow older, the shape of your face changes due to aging and weight fluctuations. Fat accumulates in the jawline and neck area, making the lower part of the face wider. Whereas the upper part loses fat, causing hollowness and sagging. Lipo-structuring thus helps redistribute facial fat using micro liposuction and micro fat grafting to make a face look more youthful.

  • Non-invasive Cosmetic Procedures

People are now seeking less invasive options for cosmetic surgery. An increasing number of patients are becoming more interested in natural body or facial transformation options rather than undergoing surgeries. Less invasive procedures use the patient’s blood plasma or fat to fill in those areas of the body that have lost their volume and shape.

  • Gynecomastia Surgery

While women are looking for breast enlargement, men generally are seeking the opposite. Gynecomastia is a condition that causes the enlargement of male breasts and can be treated with male breast reduction surgery. This surgery aims to remove excess breast tissue that men or young boys may develop during puberty, making their chests smaller and firmer.

  • Medical tourism

It is a growing trend where several medical tourists come to Dubai to avail of world-class services in plastic surgery.  Being one of the best destinations in the world, tourists often visit to get top-quality and successful cosmetic results while also making a vacation out of it. An estimated 750,000 medical tourists visited Dubai last year, out of which 12 percent of them opted for plastic surgery.

While other sectors of the economy are facing cutbacks, people continue to spend money on their looks. Dubai has also seen a surge of overseas patients due to its international cosmetic appeal.
