Gérard Guidi

Director – Founder of “Centre de Chirurgie Esthétique de l’Océan Indien”

He was called “the little one.” Perhaps because it was often the smallest in his class or In his rugby team. Maybe that’s why he always wanted to go a little further than the others, to be a little taller. He has always been active. He fought not to stay in school, to begin his apprenticeship at fourteen years, in the hairdressing salon of his father. He wanted to integrate active life as quickly as possible. In some situations, he has some regrets. But he has always compensated for his lack of schooling by many readings, by hours spent on the internet. It seems that you can find everything you need to know. This action he also found in rugby. Ah, rugby … A passion that came at his young age. His parents brought him to the stadium while he was still a baby. He joined the first division team at the age of sixteen. Subsequently the France junior team, military, hopes and B. He even brandished Brennus’ shield, with his friends, forty years ago. Rugby has taught him everything. The value of the effort, to overwhelming himself, the irreplaceable power of the team, the strengths of speed, how to invest 200%, and the taste for victory, of course.

When he had to leave the lawn, he began to train others. The school of rugby is the school of life. But he needed to realize, to succeed in challenges. He always needed to prove that he could succeed. What he wanted the most was to help others and to style people was not enough. This is how “Coiffeurs Sans Frontières” and “Formation sans Frontières” were born.

“We took care of the homeless kids in Madagascar. They were given a bath, they were dressed and combed. We sponsored two schools, three hundred children and the rugby school. The trainees came back changed both personally and professionally. As in rugby, these intense moments of sharing remain memorable souvenir for life. To see the kids happy after that was the most beautiful reward. But years has passed and sometimes they take away their hair, and while losing their hair they lose trust, feel bad and be afraid of the illusions that youth never ends. Not to be able to look in a mirror. This is how the great adventure of the Aesthetic Center of the Indian Ocean began. The values ​​of his sport of predilection found their full justification: the team, the ultimate performance, the speed, the respect of the other. It could have been simple words. Not in the Center.

Respect others starts from understanding them. Understand how it hurts when you are not having the body you dream of. To see the changes little by little, without being able to do anything about it. To see his anguish reflected in the way others look at us. To shut oneself up, not to dare to do anything because they no longer dare to look at each other. Respect for others requires continuous listening to their fears, their needs. It means offering the most effective and innovative care. It takes him less time. This means offering painless interventions, limiting the pain to the maximum when it is not preventable. Providing you with the most beautiful and relaxing setting possible, an unforgettable experience, the most pleasant one you can imagine. The patient will be able to return to work in a few days, or even hours, without any noticeable change. Let him be encourage by the surprise of his friends and relative to find him suddenly radiant and at last happy. Let him go home without any scars. Just with a smile, and he only has to worry about his rebirth, his new life. A life where he will no longer be limited by his doubts, his fears.

Performance is the continuous search for the best innovations. Those that will help the patient, which will eradicate the inconvenience associated with the intervention. He is not a doctor. He is only a curious insatiable, open to everything, from the moment when the benefit is proved. Our structure is a training center for practitioners from all over the world. Our experts are in permanent formation, and participate in world-class conferences. Training, for us, is not a meaningless word. It must be as technical as human. For there is no professional progress without human progress.

These are the values we defend.
