How long does it last? Permanent.

The Vampire Facelift

How much? Facial liposuctionis around Dhs7,000.
How long does it last? 12-14 months.
Celeb inspiration: Think Madonna and the Olsen twin’s pillowy cheeks.

Eye Whitening
What is it? A surgical eye whitening procedure that removes redness, growths and other imperfections from the eye ball.
Pros: You’ll never look tired again.
Cons: Side effects include dry eyes, scarring and infection, and you risk removing healthy tissue.
How much? Dhs11,000-Dhs18,00 per eye.
How long does it last? Permanent.

Fat Freezing
What is it? A brand new alternative to liposuction which involves freezing fat to kill it before it is flushed out of the body over the course of several months.
Pros: No incisions are required, as with liposuction.
Cons: This is a brand new treatment, so long-term side effects are not yet known. Plus, the treatment only works on relatively fit and trim people, so you shouldn’t expect miracles.
How much? Around Dhs1,800-2,500 per treatment.
How long does it last? Fat is reduced by up to 20 per cent and should stay off if you follow a healthy diet/exercise regime.

Corset Trunkplasty
What is it? A revolutionary new contouring procedure that targets above-the-belly-button flab to create an hourglass silhouette.
Pros: You’ll look awesome in a corset.
Cons: This is major surgery which involves making three incisions in your torso, so there’s a danger of blood clots, as well as the usual risks associated with anesthesia.
How much? Around Dhs48,000.
How long does it last? Permanent.
Celeb inspiration: The sculpted waistline of Dita Von Teese.

Lookalike Surgery
