Dr. Punam Bijlani - Plastic Surgeon in Dubai

The human being is an emotional sculpture, which laughs, cries and smiles. It is hence psychological suffering that brings people to a plastic surgeon. Michelangelo said: “I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.” Plastic surgery too can release the patient from his/her complex by surgically improving on physical disorders, defects, or imperfections. Once, Anatomy was considered as destiny. Today, plastic surgery can influence that destiny positively.

Plastic surgeons imbibe operating techniques from their surgery teachers, but the harmony of proportions they must learn from the great sculptors – from Michelangelo, Leonardo, Rodin and Dalí – and also from countless painters. Aesthetic plastic surgery must strive to achieve the highest possible harmony between body and soul… “ harmonia suprema lex.”

About

Dr. Punam Jawahar Bijlani is a double board certified Plastic Surgeon from Mumbai, India and acquired her Aesthetic Surgery training under the supervision of the late Prof.Pitanguy, Brazil.

With two decades in practice Dr Bijlani is proficient in aesthetic surgery (breast, body and face for women and men) as well as reconstructive surgery for post trauma, burns and cancer surgery of the face and body. 


When I was a young student in medical college I read “The Right To Look Human” the life story of plastic surgeon Jack Penn. The book was replete with photos of his figurative sculptures. And intuitively I thought, I want to do that, and thus began my journey to become a plastic surgeon. Dr Bijlani did her graduation, post graduation and super specialisation in Plastic Surgery from Grant Medical College.

Dr Bijlani has been a long standing Plastic Surgeon in Mumbai in two-premium private care hospitals -Jaslok and Saifee Hospitals. She also served at her Alma Mater as an Honorary Assistant Professor in Plastic Surgery.

The Emirates Plastic Surgery Society has recognized her for her meritorious contribution. Dr Bijlani has also the distinction of being appointed as Adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor in Plastic Surgery at the Mohammed Bin Rashid University (MBRU) of Medicine and Health Sciences, Dubai UAE. The MBRU is in partnership services with Queen’s University, Belfast and with the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh. She has also had a wonderful association with two of the most eminent clinics in Dubai namely Al Shunnar Plastic Surgery and Cocoona Aesthetic Transformation Centres. Additionally she has chaired and presented at several national and international meetings.  The Kingdom of Seychelles also invites Dr Bijlani for pro-bono work.

In 2016, Dr Bijlani completed her Masters in Management in International health systems from the University of Liverpool. This has facilitated her objective to deliver Patient- Centered Culturally Sensitive Health Care.

The links between the worlds of art and surgery are powerful and pervasive and Dr Bijlani too has an active interest in art, which she practices in her spare time. She has participated in various exhibitions including World Art Dubai. At other times she’s exploring the globe with her daughter.

  • When I decided to get tummy tuck and liposuction, I have been to many cosmetic surgeons for consultation because it is a serious decision and I wanted to get the best results but unfortunately I didn’t feel satisfied will them. When I met Dr Punam she really was different in terms of explaining everything about the procedure and understanding my concerns. I loved the results so much and I highly recommend her.

  • Unrivalled expertise and trust are the two most important factors are look for when dealing with healthcare professionals. Dr Punam is undoubtedly one of the most respected experts in plastic surgeons in the UAE, combining medical knowledge and artistic appreciation for aesthetics and symmetry. I personally recommend her to my friends who share my high standards for quality.

  • Dr Punam is an exceptional physician and person. She literally saved my life. I came to her office with a severe infection due to a botched plastic surgery performed by a visiting plastic surgeon in Dubai. She took me in (no questions asked) and looked after not only my physical wounds but also help me with the emotional and mental strain I was facing during such a difficult time. While she understood my fears and concerns, she has been always honest and straight forward when it came to managing my expectations on the potential aesthetic results. My health and wellbeing were always her main priority. She is one of a kind and I would be eternally grateful to her.

  • This message is a feed of the service I have been receiving from RAK Hospital and from you. With regard the hospital, all the staff and facilities are for me considered as a top service and I highly recommend. All my friends, who visited me after my surgery, were also very impressed. As of you, I consider myself blessed to have you as my doctor. You have a very special balance between power and kindness; which made me feel safety and confident. Thank you for being so good listener, for answering all my calls and always been available. Regarding your skills and proficiency, when I look at the mirror, I smile; do I need to say anything more ? At the hospital feedback sheet, says that the report will be kept confidential unless told otherwise. I kindly ask you to keep it open, as I understand how is useful when we are searching for a doctor, we have a real life statement which goes well beyond than any advertisement.Best regards with my gratitude.

  • I remember with gratitude, how a decade old chronic pain got relieved from my right thumb.
    Suffered lightening pain, whenever a particular point of  my thumb came into contact with even a soft object.
    Consulted several specialties, had MRIs/X Rays, but they failed to detect the problem.
    You gave me confidence to go for yet another MRI ( in your physical presence) and located the “Glomus Tumor” and removed it surgically.
    Appreciate your smart intervention.

  • I am writing to acknowledge the expert professional attention provided to me by during the reconstructive surgery by Dr. Punam Bijlani, the Consultant and Clinical Head-Plastic, Aesthetic & Reconstructive Surgeon.

    I had undergone a cyst removal procedure on 19th of Sept 2012 by an orthopedic surgeon on the dorsum of the left foot in one of the renowned hospital in Dubai. But due to reasons the wound never healed. The discomfort along with pain was becoming unbearable with each passing days. Referred by two sources I visited Dr. Punam Bijlani while she was attached with RAK Hospital. After thorough check up Dr. Bijlani meticulously explained what her approach will be to tackle the wound, this gave me the confidence to undergo the procedure.

    Dr. Bijlani carried out flap surgery on my left foot on 6th Nov 2012 and prior discharging me from hospital she instructed “do’s and don’ts” to be followed post-operative procedure, to facilitate the healing.

    Dr. Bijlani removed the sutures before end of 1st week of Dec 2012. Thereafter, I was able to walk normally within 3 days of the suture removal. She advised that the nerves may cause irritation for about 5/6 months, and to fact the nerves irritation went off in the stipulated time.

    I thank Dr. Punam Bijlani for the professional attention to my case and post-operative care.
