It was indeed a career uplifting and life-changing experience for me. The Tehran experience was out of this world, what with the ‘tonnes’ of rhinoplasties and other facial and body contouring surgeries. The immense warmth and solicitude of the trainers and facilitators there and their expert skills are really commendable.
