Dr Sanjay Parashar moved to Dubai in 2005 with a dream to make it the next up-and-coming location for plastic surgery and aesthetics. He began as a surgeon at an already-established medical centre but soon launched his own business, Cocoona Centre for Aesthetic Transformation.

Today, he has four centres in Dubai and one each in Delhi and Meerut, and is building a large specialised hospital for plastic surgery on Jumeirah Beach Road.

He has performed over 10,000 surgeries, written two books and a number of papers, and often travels around the world to share his knowledge with his peers and students. He is well-known for supporting women who have suffered acid attacks, with surgeries and treatments that help them rehabilitate.
