Q: What is your educational background?
I graduated from King Edward Medical College and did my post-graduation in clinical research from University of Surrey UK, in dermatology from University of Hertfordshire UK, Health Economics and Policy Making from London School of Economics. In the field of Aesthetics I did a diploma in Aesthetic Medicine from American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine, Diploma in Facial Anatomy from University of Nice and Board Certification in Anti – Aging, Weight Management and Fat Transfers from the American Academy of Procedural Medicine. I have many other certifications in the field of Aesthetics and Anti – Aging.
Q: What sparked your interest in cosmetology and aesthetic surgery?
To be honest I started full time Aesthetic practice quite late. I had been practicing all these years and used to practice Aesthetics only part time and that too on request. As you can see from my qualifications, I am also a Health Policy Expert. Aesthetics and Skin has always been close to my heart and one day on my mothers’ order to practice full time at my own clinic I started giving all my time and energy towards this side.
Q: What skill set according to you is important to ace in your field?
Compassion, listening, giving time to your client and an eye for aesthetics.
Q: How has your journey been so far? Any struggles?
I would say challenges keeps you moving forward. I have been there done that. I hope I can finish my book in my lifetime which could tell you an interesting journey. It is called “The Reason”. I am also writing a book called ‘Master of Being a Jack of All”. I believe more in word of mouth and try to be honest to my clients and do not try to sell them too many things unlike others in this field. I still believe that one needs to be consistent and honest and what is yours will come to you.
Q: When did you decide that you want to be an Aesthetic Dermatologist?
I have been part of Aesthetics ever since it started in Pakistan, so I have seen the whole evolution of this field. Full time practice in this field has been 4 years but my association in part time form has been many years.
Q: How would you describe your creativity and personal style?
Simple, Natural and Honest.
Q: There must be several ups and downs in your career so far, what motivated you in your darkest times?
If your conscience is clear and you do your work with honesty and dedication, motivation comes itself. Yes! fears are always there but they should be a challenge that you need to overcome. My Mother always says to me that, (Don’t worry your mom is there) and it takes away all the worries. My mother, father, wife, kids and friends are a big motivation. I am lucky to have people who love me.
Q: What are you fascinated by at the moment?
The ever-changing field of surgical and non – surgical aesthetics is a fascination.
Q: How would you describe your label?
It’s a one of its kind facility in Pakistan. Non-surgical aesthetics, surgical aesthetics, weight management, hair transplant, dentistry (cosmetic and general), fertility clinic, spa and salon all under one roof. The only dedicated facility catering to the needs of Surgical and Non-Surgical Aesthetics. Psychological Support is what we added recently. ‘Mind and Skin’ and ‘Mind and Body’ are two programs that we are running right now. The other project very close to my heart that I have started is the ‘Anti-age Self Esteem Project’. This is purely philanthropic.
Q: Where do you see yourself in the coming 10 years?
My dream is to leave a legacy and I believe that is what I will be working towards in the coming years.
Q: Any message you would like to give to upcoming ones in your field?
There is no short cut. Keep working hard and you will achieve the target. Aesthetics is a tricky field please don’t hasten your journey. There are commercial gains but for Gods sake we did take a Hippocratic Oath and are Doctors and we are answerable to our clients / patients and profession.
