Plastic Surgery

Are you Western-trained Plastic Surgeon seeking new challenges and a better lifestyle?

The dynamic and growing healthcare sector in the UAE requires highly skilled and experienced plastic surgeons who have their completed consultant training (CCT). Those with advanced fellowships post-specialisation are especially sought after to bring new skills and techniques to the region. Subspecialties in which plastic surgeons in the UAE work include reconstructive plastic surgery, trauma surgery, paediatric and congenital plastic surgery, hand and upper limb surgery, breast surgery, skin cancer management, head and neck cancer surgery and cosmetic plastic surgery. Plastic surgeons may work in multi-specialty hospitals, day surgery units, medical centres or specialised clinics.

The demand for cosmetic plastic surgery is growing in Dubai and the wider UAE. According to research by the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) the number of people seeking cosmetic plastic surgery in Dubai has doubled since the start of Covid-19, increasing from 223,507 in 2020 to 583,909 in 2022. Dubai is home to over 400 clinics focused on beauty and aesthetics. In-demand treatments provided by cosmetic plastic surgeons include blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty, face and body contouring, abdominoplasty, breast augmentation or reduction, hair transplants, botox and fillers. Clinics are equipped with the latest technologies, such as 3D imaging, lasers, ultrasonics and Coolsculpting, enabling state-of-the-art treatment.

As well as providing healthcare for citizens and residents, the UAE is fast becoming one of the top global destinations for international patients seeking high quality, accessible medical care, with plastic surgery being one of the most popular specialties. The medical tourism sector is well supported and regulated by the government. The Dubai Health Experience (DXH), founded by the Dubai Health Authority (DHA), brings together a consortium of recognised, quality-assured healthcare providers and facilitators to optimise the medical tourism experience.

Plastic surgeons working in the UAE are well supported in their continuing professional development (CPD). The Emirates Plastic Surgery Society (EPSS), formed in 1993, brings together plastic surgeons in the UAE to support continued learning, enhance best practices and develop expert opinions related to medical ethics and the improvement of scientific knowledge in plastic surgery.

Research in the field of plastic surgery is growing in the UAE. There is the opportunity to get involved in different topics ranging from microsurgery, wound healing tissue engineering and composite tissue allotransplantation. In May 2023, Dubai hosted the Annual World Congress of ICOPLAST, the world’s largest gathering of plastic surgery societies. Dubai is the first Arab city to host this prestigious annual world congress, in collaboration with Arab Association Of Surgical & Medical Aesthetics (AASMA) and Emirates Plastic Surgery Congress (EPSS).

Professionals in plastic surgery and other specialities are attracted to the UAE for many reasons including tax-free salary, improved lifestyle in a safe, multicultural, family-friendly environment, and the opportunity to apply for a Golden Visa.
