Medical Tourism Helping Out Flagging Dubai

Dubai isn’t the first place that people think of when they talk about medical or cosmetic surgery tourism, but the emirate has become a hub of wellness and cosmetic surgery in the Middle East.

The medical and cosmetic surgery tourism is such a key part of the Emirate’s economy that UAE VP and Prime Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, also the ruler of Dubai, passed a law back in 2018 to bolster medical tourism in the city. Said legislation, Law No. 8 of 2018, was enacted by the Dubai Health Authority in order to make sure that clinics in Dubai bring in highly-trained medical and technical staff for the well-being, health, and privacy of patients.

In 2018, Dubai saw 337,011 international medical tourists, as reported by the DHA, with revenue going up 5.5% year-on-year AED 12.1BN for that year.

As for the future, the DHA are also working on attracting at least half a million medical tourists by 2021 as it works on the city’s position in the world’s medical tourism sector.

With five star hotels and luxurious wellness centers, Dubai is known for attracting a lot of wealthy individuals from across the world, including the neighboring Saudi Arabia.

Celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon stated their belief that the Saudis like looking good, as well as their interest in plastic and cosmetic surgery. He says that, thanks to Dubai’s proximity to Saudi Arabia, it makes it easy for patients from the latter to come over.

Ordon is an Emmy-nominated co-host of The Doctors, and a practicing surgeon of plastic, aesthetic, and reconstructive surgery in Beverly Hills, as well as being Chief Medical Officer and Visiting Surgeon at the Valiant Clinic’s Beverly Hills Sunset Surgery Center.

Valiant Clinic, is aimed at high-net-worth individuals, was at the forefront of the medical tourism from Saudi. Dubai saw 755,000 Saudis, up by 2% year-on-year over half a year, with Saudi Arabians behind only Indians in travel to the city.

Ordon, who visits Dubai bi-monthly for about ten days every trip, says that Dubai has turned into the Middle East’s hub, with people coming there for a variety of reasons. He says that, thanks to breast reconstruction surgery and other procedures, the stigma of plastic surgery is slowly going away.

Sweating is not a disorder; it is considered normal for most people. Those who sweat excessively are usually suffering from a serious condition called hyperhidrosis. In most cases, the condition can be controlled but a good option to stop worrying about sweat is wearing women’s undershirts made from breathable fabrics that are pleasantly cool and comfortable.

There are other ways to stay sweat-free like minimizing caffeine consumption. Caffeine stimulates the nervous system and can activate the sweat glands. The heat level can cause the body to go through turmoil with sweaty palms and underarms. Instead of hot coffee, try the iced version instead.

Sweat can make you smell bad that is why deodorants are very popular. Deodorants can keep you smell-free for hours but it will not control excessive sweating. You will need an antiperspirant to control the sweat glands and prevent sweat from dripping on the clothes.

Breathable fabrics like cotton and linen are suggested for the hot summer months instead of polyester. For closed-toe shoes, it is important to use socks to prevent the feet from smelling. Foot odor can lead to bacteria and the accumulation of fungus. Dark colored clothes or shirts with distracting patterns can hide sweat stains.

A cold shower can stop sweat glands and lower the body temperature. Cold showers are cost effective solutions and known for the many advantages it provides. If the face is sweaty during sudden breakouts, it is good option to splash the face with water. It will also reduce the size of the pores.

You can dress smartly while avoiding sweat stains by using undershirts under the regular clothing. Undershirts provide a crucial layer of protection against sweat stains. Sweat will hit the undershirt first before it hits your outer clothing. It can wick moisture away from the skin to make you feel cooler and more comfortable.

There are women’s undershirts in different nude shades for every skin tone. This ensures that the undershirt is undetectable under the outfit. The soft and breathable fabric of the undershirt is regenerated from ethically sourced eucalyptus trees to keep a woman pleasantly cool and dry throughout the day.
