Dr. Leandro – Junqueira Medical Clinic
The Age of Cosmetic Surgery
A city of glitz and glamor, with thriving businesses and young entrepreneurs, Dubai is a place where appearances matter and to look good is the norm of the day. The city also dictates certain style standards that are achievable by the use of ordinary color cosmetics all the way to going under the knife. As the standard of medical procedures and facilities are at par with the most modern facilities in the world, more and more people are opting for cosmetic treatments within Dubai. As the popularity of cosmetic in the region continues to increase and shows no sign of abating, the rise in cosmetology clinics seems to be on the surge.
Dr. Leandro Junqueira is a renowned Brazilian Plastic surgeon providing his expertise to the patients in UAE since 2009. With over 15+ years of experience in reconstructive procedures and having performed over 10,000 successful procedures, Dr. Junqueira has worked hard working diligently to restore form and functionality for many satisfied patients. Dr. Junqueira’s passion for aesthetics comes from his belief that Plastic surgery may be used not only to enhance a person’s looks, but also to restore a patient’s appearance following an accident or a case of cancer/another fatal disease.
Gaining a lot more experience with the latest techniques and technology that are widely and immediately available in the Middle East, Dr. Junqueira also has a lot to say when it comes to cosmetic procedures like Botox, fillers, lines, laser, peeling, PRP (Blood with vitamins), Mesotherapy and hair loss. Weight loss measures like fat freezing, which has gained quite some name with patients is also a part the many procedures Dr. Junqueira is known for. We spoke with Dr. Junqueira and learned more about the demands of the cosmetic surgery in the region and what has he got to offer.
Cosmetic surgery has gained so much popularity over the past few years. Why do you think this is?
We are living in a globalization season, where the quality of life improved a lot added with the time of life that also is getting longer. Today we are living more, traveling and trading much more as before. We have young ones as business people, both, male and female, in a world that everybody one looks good, day and night, that’s why the volume of procedures is increasing added to the fact that the surgical techniques are improved a lot and are closer to everyone.
What are the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in the region?
The most common procedures in the region are liposuction and breast augmentation for the woman, and for man are liposuction and the nose job.
Do you think that people should search for non-surgical procedures rather than surgical procedures, even if it means that it will be less effective?
Yes, I do believe in a majority of the cases that nonsurgical procedures must be the first option to offer to the patient a chance of improvement, with exception when there is no surgical procedure related to this area. For example, today we can change the face of one person easily, just with injections, without any scar, and this is amazing! Of course, the result will not last as with a surgery, but the patient got a good result without downtime, anesthesia, and scar….
What non-surgical procedure is the most popular at Junqueira Medical Clinic?
The most common nonsurgical procedures what we call “small procedures and big results” are, for example, injections of Toxin Botulinum in the forehead and cross fit, minimizing the aging effect, injections with Hyaluronic Acid in the cheek bones chin, chin, nose, mandible line…. offering amazing results. In the body side, we have the criolipolisys procedure freezing the body fat, with great results.
What is Junqueira Medical Clinic offering to the region?
We are passionate about giving the best to our patients. In a surgical field, we work in all areas, in the face like facelifting, nose job, blepharoplasty, earplasty. In the body, all procedures related to breast, even reconstruction after cancer, all kind of liposuction and tummy tuck and off course BBL or Brazilian But Lifting that can be done with fat or implant. In no surgical procedures, including Toxin Botulinum, fillers, freezing fat, facial treatments, laser hair removal, tattoo removal and many kinds of peelings, lasers, physical or chemical ones.
Are celebrities encouraging young people to have cosmetic surgery?
Yes, the celebrities are encouraging the people to care for themselves, exactly like they do. We do the procedure considering their origin, age, lifestyle, and expectation. We must have a combination of all these aspects to preserve the patient’s identity and personality.
Do you have any advice for anyone who is considering a procedure?
My advice is to search for a qualified professional, added with a good reference from someone known. You have the internet on your side, use it to help to find it. Visit more than one professional till you feel comfortable to trust him 100%.
