Aesthetic / Cosmetic Surgery
The rapid acceptance by the public of cosmetic surgery confirms its value and the need for it. Cosmetic surgery covers a wide variety of procedures from head to toe. Procedures include Facelift, Liposuction, Breast reduction/ augmentation abdominoplasty etc.
Aesthetic/ Cosmetic Surgery in India has undergone a radical change over the last decade. Even since beauty queens from India (Refer Ashwarya Rai and Sushmita Sen) have started winning international beauty pagents, the number of patients demanding Cosmetic Surgery in India is rapidly climbing. There was a time when rich Indians looked towards the west for Cosmetic Sugery. This trend is now reversing and a large number of people from the west are coming to India for Cosmetic Surgery where it can be done for fraction of what it costs in this country. Operations as shown in this slide are routinely being done in our hospital.
Reconstructive microsurgery is the other area of Plastic Surgery where we have taken long strides. Sir Ganga Ram City Hospital can boast of being the leading centre in the whole of north India for replantation surgery for finger, hand or limb amputations. Besides these complex reconstructions for major tissue losses either due to trauma or cancer is mostly done by advanced microsurgical techniques.
The third major super specialty of Plastic Surgery i.e. craniofacial surgery is as advanced as cosmetic and reconstructive microsurgery. We do more than 300 operations on children with clefts of lip and palate every year. Reconstruction of craniofacial soft tissue and bony injuries (bottom left) is done using advanced bone fixation techniques. Major facial vascular malformations (top right) are managed by preoperative embolisation followed by surgical excision). Other complex faciomaxillary reconstructions are being routinely done.
