Aesthetic Procedures: Destination UAE

Press Release   •   Sep 12, 2014 16:15 IST

Poised to touch the mark of nearly US$ 34 Billion by 2018, the UAE healthcare sector is estimated to grow at a CAGR of over 13% during 2013 to 2018. One of the major trends observed in the UAE health/hospital industry was the growth in number of people looking to undergo knife for aesthetic procedures. The United Arab Emirates is becoming a hotspot for people seeking cosmetic and plastic surgery, as the country combines excellent results with cheap costs. According to DHA, of the total 68,000 cosmetic procedure seekers visiting Dubai last year, 13,000 were Emirati women and 2,000 were Emirati men. The top five cosmetic procedures are liposuction or lipoplasty, rhinoplasty, breast augmentation or lift, face lift and stomach tuck. Cost is a major factor driving foreigners to UAE.

To tap the demand, many international service providers have flocked to UAE. UK-based Elite Cosmetic Surgery Group opened a UAE branch at Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC), prompted by the flow of enquiries from the Middle East. The UAE ranks high in terms of the volume of plastic surgeons working here. According to Dr Luiz Toledo, a Dubai-based surgeon, the UAE has one plastic surgeon for every 18,000 people, compared to one for every 50,000 in the US. This itself reflects the potential of cosmetic procedures in the country.
