A member of the ‘Iran Plastic Surgeons Association’ Board of Directors said the treatment process for acid attack victims will be very long and expensive and the government is obligated to provide the costs.
The victims need up to 60 surgeries to regain their health. The process of medical treatment may take up to 10 years. “Regaining their ‘health’ or ‘beauty’ are two different matters and victims of acid attacks will never regain their beauty,” he emphasized.
