Dr. Adnan Tahir discusses coming out of lockdown and the concept of ‘life part two’ and how now could be the time to take the jump to do something you’ve wanted to do for a while. 

As we emerge from lockdown, a lot of us are reflecting on how these past months have affected us and what we’ve learnt. What’s been the silver lining of this challenging time?

It seems like we’ve all been on a rollercoaster ride – from the lows of separation from loved ones to the highs of resuming the everyday activities that we previously took for granted. It’s no wonder that many of us are feeling bewildered and wondering, “What comes next?”.

‘Life part two’

While life hasn’t got back to full speed, my advice would be to view this quiet time as the silver lining. It’s a space to reflect on how you want your life to look going forward and to prepare yourself for ‘Life part two’.

Small steps to big changes

As part of this reflection, why not start a new regime of healthy living where even small adjustments paying dividends.

Swap sugary snacks for fresh fruit, cut down on the carbs and eat meat-free at least once a week. Similarly, we are blessed in the Emirates to have limitless exercise choices. With pools available in every community, a plethora of exercise classes and gyms and running tracks in scenic places, there’s no excuse not to get fit!

In addition, don’t forget your mental wellbeing. Check out mindfulness apps, get back into prayer or mediation if that’s your thing, or simply sit and enjoy the slower pace of life.

Making your dream a reality

And if you’ve always dreamed of having a cosmetic procedure, now is the perfect time to make it a reality. Here are a few of my most popular procedures, available in the luxurious surroundings of Maison Lutétia at Dubai Festival City.

Botox and fillers

If you want a natural-looking pick-me-up, Botox and fillers could be just what you’re looking for. Botox will relax and smooth lines, while fillers add volume, altering the contours of your face and filling in wrinkles. Both procedures offer a subtle transformation, lending you a more youthful look.


Sometimes it doesn’t matter how hard you exercise, you will always be stuck with stubborn areas of fat. This is where liposuction comes in, removing unwanted fat and sculpting your body for an enhanced natural appearance.


If you’re unhappy with the look of your nose, you’ve probably found that this affects your whole body image and self-confidence. A rhinoplasty in the hands of a skilled surgeon could be the answer, transforming both your looks and self-esteem.

Tummy tuck

A tummy tuck is a popular choice to get rid of excess fat and loose skin from the abdominal area, and tighten muscles as well. Women who have lost large amounts of weight or who have undergone pregnancy are ideal candidates for this procedure, which can restore their self-confidence after massive life changes.

Breast lift

Another popular choice for women post-pregnancy is the breast lift, which will rectify sagging or uneven breasts, reduced volume and sagging. This transformative procedure will promote a more youthful appearance and help you look your best in and out of clothes.

Keep it simple

Self-improvement doesn’t have to be complicated. By taking a few steps to improve our day-to-day lives or simply reaching out to fulfil those dreams, you can become the person you were meant to be.
