2013-12-08 12:28:01 - New firm to render expert advice on specialized treatments, specialist surgeons and locations where plastic surgery procedures and treatments can be performed
Vasilica Aesthetics, a plastic surgery consultancy firm, is looking to mark its presence in the Middle East region with the recent opening of its flagship office in Dubai. The company provides consultation services that aim to fill the gap between patients who wish to undertake plastic surgery, by recommending the right surgeons and specialists along with information regarding the latest techniques available in the world. The opening of Vasilica Aesthetics’ new offices helps consolidate the UAE’s position as a leading destination for medical tourism in the Middle East region.
Vasilica Aesthetics offers key services that include rendering experienced advice and informing clients about available treatment options and the speciality of each surgeon. The company also helps its clients in facilitating
appointments and consultations with leading doctors and plastic surgeons in the UAE, US and Europe—even helping with the travel arrangements. Lastly, part of the expert advice given by Vasilica Aesthetics consultants is informing their clients of estimated costs on procedures even before the actual meeting between patient and doctor.
“The opening of our flagship office in Dubai could not have come at a better time as medical tourism is booming in the region, particularly in the UAE,” said Vasilica Roxana Baltateanu, Co-Founder and Managing Director, Vasilica Aesthetics. “Wanting to be a part of this growth surge, our new office offers clients the advantage of convenience and knowledge—you tell us your concerns and we will advise you on the best treatment available and recommend the best medical professional for you and tell you how much it will cost, and yes, we will even book your appointment along with making the necessary travel arrangements.”
Recent industry reports have shown that the medical tourism in the region continues to grow, amidst rising healthcare costs and increased waiting times, particularly in the US and Europe. The region's healthcare market is expected to grow at a Compounded Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 11.4 per cent over the next two years; giving rise to the development of specialized healthcare cities and other major hospital projects that will attract more medical tourists.
“Many are not aware, but recent statistics have shown that 40 per cent of people undergoing plastic surgery are men. This just gives light to the fact that plastic surgery is now being considered by both men and women who want to look and feel better. Some of the most common procedures are ultrasound assisted liposuction, breast surgery and facial procedures. Our clients can come to us and discuss their concerns and are assured of full confidentiality. We are also looking to open similar offices in KSA and Qatar,” concluded Vasilica Roxana Baltateanu.
