Designation: Founder and plastic surgeon
Dr Sanjay Parashar has been in the plastic surgery industry for 20 years, having started his career in India before moving to Dubai in 2005 to launch the Cocoona brand, which offers everything from weight loss surgery to dental. Its most popular procedures, of course, are plastic and cosmetic surgeries – something the doctor refers to as “art”. So far, he has four centres in Dubai and two in India, with a specialised hospital currently being built on Jumeirah Beach Road.
He has performed over 10,000 surgeries in the region, many of which are aimed at helping victims of acid attacks, particularly women.
