Avivo offers free surgeries for breast cancer survivors

DUBAI, October 29, 2018

Avivo Group, one of the fastest growing healthcare organisations in the GCC, has announced the launch of Breasthetica, a social impact campaign for breast cancer survivors in the UAE providing post-cancer breast aesthetic surgery.
The campaign aims to help breast cancer survivors in the country through their recovery process by offering three women free breast aesthetic surgeries. 
After a mastectomy, breast aesthetic surgery can make a woman feel better about how she looks and can renew her self-confidence. The aesthetic surgeries will be performed by Avivo’s renowned team of board-certified plastic surgeons, giving hope to women who desire to look their original self but don’t have the resources to have the surgery, said a statement.
Dr Dilshaad Ali, group CEO, Avivo Group, said: “Breast cancer is a tough battle to fight; physically, emotionally and psychologically. Through Breasthetica we not only want to spread awareness about the disease, but we also want to empower women to regain their confidence, and have happy and fulfilled lives, like everyone else.
“Breasthetica is Avivo’s contribution to society. Besides providing access to such specialized surgery to deserving patients, we see this as an opportunity for us to raise awareness that there is life after cancer, especially when detected early,” Dr Ali said. 
Breasthetica will be led by Aesthetica Clinic Dubai – an Avivo group enterprise that focuses on anti-ageing, aesthetic medicine and plastic surgical procedures. 
Deserving candidates will be chosen by an independent medical committee comprising an internationally renowned team of surgeons and independent representatives from leading UAE healthcare entities. The programme will support the candidates throughout the pre-selection process, pre-surgery, surgery and follow up aftercare that will run continuously for a lifetime.  - TradeArabia News Service
