Would you like to train in medical aesthetics?


A renowned plastic surgeon is offering free training for Khoja young women as a first step towards a lucrative career.

Dr Mahmood Kara practices in Toronto and has more than 20 years’ experience.

The six months’ training he is offering will allow suitable candidates to go on to practice laser aesthetics under supervision. They will receive observorship / preceptorship training after being selected based on recommendations and interviews. Candidates with an aesthetician or beautician background would be preferred.

A preceptorship is a period to guide and support newly qualified practitioners to make the transition from student and develop their practice further.

Laser aesthetics

Training will focus on laser aesthetics as well as Botox, fillers and other injectables such as Radiesse, Sculptra and Kybella (Belkyra). All hands-on practice will be subject to Ontario (Ministry of Health) guidelines.

Dr Kara’s clinic is equipped to carry out procedures such as Hollywood Spectra Peel, which removes blemishes and makes makeup optional. More examples can be seen here: https://us.aesthetic.lutronic.com/us/news-and-events/recorded-webinars/

Six-figure income

“I am always open to sharing knowledge and experience, and if we can create great careers in medical aesthetics for young women in our community, we can make things better for a lot of people, Insha’Allah,” he says.

He adds: “This is an excellent career for our Khoja young women. I have had several staff making low to mid six-figure incomes within two or three years working part-time.”

Top of his class

Dr Kara trained at University of Toronto Medical School, where he was awarded the Irving Heward Cameron Gold Medal of Surgery for being top of his class, and at the University of Western Ontario for his plastic surgery residency.

He is a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Canada (FRCSC), and member of the Canadian Society of Plastic Surgeons and the American Society of Plastic Surgery.

He hails from the Habib Kara family from Uganda, and is the first grandson of the late Habib Kara, a pioneer and philanthropist in Kampala and Toronto.
