“It’s about building a friendly, honest relationship and going through a step-by-step process to find what is best for the patient. I want to learn my patient’s dreams and together we find the best method to achieve those results.”
One of the most memory examples of how aesthetic surgery can positively change a person’s life for Dr Kasem is that of a 28-year-old former patient. She first walked into his clinic with her mother, troubled by the fact she had never had any sort of relationship, which she believed to be due to a lack of self-confidence caused by a chest-wall deformity. After Dr Kasem performed breast augmentation using 3D technology her personality, self-confidence and outlook on life completely changed.
“She was very happy,” he says. “I remember at the one month follow-up visit she was joyfully explaining how for the first time in her life people are noticing her. That moment of happiness I saw in her eyes was previously unimaginable. Now she is happily married and living the life she always wanted. I believe her newfound happiness and joy is all down to the confidence she finally has. Cynics might say something else but they would be wrong; all I did is give her that little bit of confidence she needed to go out and be all that she could be. She is definitely someone who’s life has changed for the better after surgery was able to help her be more comfortable and confident with herself.”
Dr Kasem specialises in the use of laser surgery technology and 3D modelling which helps the consultation process, and allows patients a much quicker recovery than traditional methods of plastic surgery, so the transition back into their normal life is much quicker and less painfull.
According to Dr Kasem, the most common procedures for women are breast augmentation, nose jobs and liposuction. European women usual concentrate on procedures for their body, while Arab women most often have work done to their face.
