With the cosmetic surgery gaining currency across the world, there is no dearth of fallacy. Many are aware of the fact that it is quite safe when any seasoned doctor conducts it.
Here everything depended on the safe process. The latest the technology, the safest the surgery.
In an exclusive interview to Gulf Today renowned cosmetic surgeon Dr Samir F. Shureih, hammered in this very fact.
Dr Shureih, who has been practicing cosmetic surgery for the last 38 years, insisted that that 'no surgery is a small surgery.'
During the interview at the the Raffles Hotel in Dubai he said “every surgery is important he says and no matter how big or small it may seem it needs to be done under utmost care and supervision.”
He stressed on the importance of choosing a board certified doctor to go ahead with any procedure whether big or small.
Dr Shureih went on to clear a few myths about cosmetic surgery that are very common among people.
Some of them includes how liposuction is chosen to be done only for someone who is obese and huge. Whereas it is ideal to do liposuction only for someone in their ideal body weight.
He also mentioned how any surgery done on someone’s body gives a trauma to the body so we need to give it ample time to recover.
“The original results of the cosmetic surgery can be assessed only after 6 months to a year and not before that as the body takes time to recover,” he said.
Dr Shureih spoke to Gulf Today on the sidelines of Emirates Plastic Congress 2020 being held at the Raffles Hotel from Jan.16-18.
