May 10, 2016

TEHRAN – Acid attack victims can enjoy free of cost cosmetic surgery by 300 cosmetic surgeon specialists across the country, in private and state-run hospitals, the head of Iranian Society of Plastic Surgeons reported on Saturday.

Speaking on the sidelines of the 40th Iranian Society of Plastic Surgeons, Abolhassan Imami said 300 plastic surgery specialists have agreed to waive the cost of surgery as a humanitarian act, according to IRNA.

Although bouncing back to normal pre-body shaped features is not possible, though our surgeons endeavor to bring back the physical generally performed to improve functions, but may also be done to approximate a normal appearance.

In acid burns, Imami explained, although plastic surgery is intended to correct dysfunctional areas of the body and improve their functions, reverting back to normal body features is impossible.
