Weight loss in Mirdif, plastic surgery and more

This week we learn of new weight loss services for Mirdif residents, and a new venue for aesthetic transformation.

Great news for Mirdif residents looking to kick-start a healthy lifestyle: Weight loss wonders Health Factory (04 347 3808), which recently opened up services to RAK residents, has partnered up with Health Bay Polyclinic in the area to offer dietary consulting services to those living in the neighbourhood. Consultations are now available at the clinic alternate Tuesdays and Thursdays between 9am and 5pm.

Meanwhile, those looking for results without the effort will be pleased to know there’s a new option when it comes to reinventing yourself. Cosmetic surgery clinic Cocoona Centre for Aesthetic Transformation (04 394 1090) has just opened its second venue, the Coocoona Day Surgical Centre (04 388 4589) inside a villa on Al Wasl Road. The new ‘luxury’ centre offers nips and tucks in areas of reconstructive surgery, facial plastic surgery and body contouring.

A new machine which uses radio frequency technology for surgical and non-surgical procedures is being implemented at Dubai Healthcare City’s London Centre for Aesthetic Surgery Gulf (04 375 2396). Plastic surgeons Dr Maurizio Viel and Dr Roberto Viel have introduced the Bodytite machine, which aids liposuction, skin tightening, reducing fine lines, wrinkles and the appearance of acne scars.

Lastly, Dubai Herbal and Treatment Centre (04 335 1200) is now offering preventative tests to see how likely you are to suffer a heart attack. The new Lp-PLA2 blood test uncovers hidden risk for heart attack and stroke, with the results available within five to 10 days of the clinic receiving the sample. Until next week, namaste.
