Recognized as a leading cosmetic surgeon and considered as one of only a few consultant microsurgeons, Dr. Adel Quttainah is making strides in the cosmetics industry of the Middle East and the Arabian Gulf area.
Dr. Adel Quttainah is a dominant figure in the plastic and reconstructive surgery industry as an internationally trained and experienced cosmetic and reconstructive surgeon. He obtained his initial medical training at the national university of Ireland, University College Cork. He then completed a five-year residency program in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at McMaster University in Ontario, Canada. For his postgraduate studies, he joined the University of Toronto for a microsurgery fellowship, where he specialized mostly in breast reconstruction through free tissue transfer and perforator flaps as well as free muscle transfer for facial reanimation post-facial paralysis.
He then went on to finish an aesthetic fellowship with Dr. Lloyd Carlsen in Woodbridge, Ontario, and a clinical research fellowship with Dr. James Bain at the Hamilton General Hospital in Ontario. In 2003, Dr. Adel Quttainah returned to the Middle East, where he headed the Plastic Surgery Department at SAAD Hospital in Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia.
Later on, he established one of the first private aesthetic surgery clinics in Kuwait, the Cosmetic Surgery Clinic. Dr. Adel Quttainah was the trailblazer in providing all “cosmetic medicine and cosmetic surgery disciplines” under one roof. He brought to life his vision of providing a one-stop shop for all cosmetic needs. This holistic approach proved most convenient for both the doctors and the patients, and soon enough, this operation model was adopted by other clinics and medical professionals nationally and internationally.
The different disciplines which Dr. Adel Quttainah scaled in one roof included Cosmetic and Reconstructive Plastic Surgery, Facial Plastic Surgery (ENT), Cosmetic Gynecology, Cosmetic Dermatology, Surgical Weight Loss (Bariatric Surgery), Non-Surgical Weight Loss and Diet Department, Laser Clinic, Skin Care and Anti-Aging Clinic, and a Hair Care and Transplantation Clinic.
Dr. Adel Quttainah proceeded to establish more clinics before opening the doors of Quttainah Medical Center (QMC) in Shaab Al Bahri, Kuwait, in 2016. It is considered the largest specialized cosmetic surgery center in the Middle East with its medical center located directly on the Arabian Gulf coast, featuring unique and refreshing seaside views.
Today, Dr. Adel Quttainah personally oversees the development of QMC. With 20 years of experience in cosmetic medicine coupled with his passion, grit, hard work, and determination as a medical professional, the leading surgeon continues to provide a one-stop solution for all the cosmetic and aesthetic needs of people from all over the Middle East and the Arabian Gulf. In a few months, Dr. Adel Quttainah’s clinic will be available in Qatar and Dubai to accommodate more patients who require his medical services.
In the end, he hopes to help more people successfully achieve the significant changes they wish to make for their appearances, and in the process, he helps these patients feel more confident and beautiful in their skin.
