Al Raffah Hospital announced the appointment of Dr Dana Vasilescu as a visiting consultant at a press conference last week. She has over 12 years of experience in plastic and reconstructive surgery. Dr Dana studied general medicine at the University of Medicine and Pharmacy in Romania, before moving to the UK. She comp-leted a PhD in alloplastic abdominal wall reconstruction and followed it up with a year in Congo working with the United Nations.

Dr Dana specialises in body reshaping and non-surgical facial rejuvenation techniques. Speaking in support of mother makeovers at the press conference, she said, “It is wonderful to be able to give back to a woman the body she had before childbirth.” She also had a few pointers for women who have been considering surgery. “Let it be your decision. Don’t let somebody force it on you.  If you aren’t confident about your appearance, you should consult a surgeon.”

According to Dr Dana, it is important for the doctor and patient to share a good rapport. “Any surgery comes with risks. If the doctor can’t clear all your doubts, you are in the wrong place.” Citing credibility issues, she also cautioned against surgery performed at low rates or for free. “Surgery isn’t something you push beyond a limit,” she said. She is currently working with Saint Denis Hospital in France as a consultant. Seeniya Biju, COO of Al Raffah,  added that with Dr Dana on the team, she expects many more patients to find solutions to their problems in the hospital.
