After all, feeling beautiful is something everyone should be able to experience. That being said, if you are contemplating cosmetic treatments here in India, we give you a lowdown on some popular surgeries you might be interested in.
We asked Dr Ramani CV, Consultant – Plastic, Reconstructive and Cosmetic Surgery, Manipal Hospitals, Whitefield, to help us out with the gritty detail of cosmetic surgeries in India. Here is what he has to say.

This surgery increases fullness and projection of breasts and can improve the balance of breast and hip contours. While on the other side, male breast enlargement or gynecomastia can occur at any stage. Medications may hamper the hormone levels, and hence cosmetic surgery helps to remove excess breast fat and glandular tissue as well.
Liposuction: Liposuction is a surgery that uses a suction technique to remove fat from specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms or neck. Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity or a substitute for proper diet and exercise. A sedentary lifestyle and peculiar body habits lead to the accumulation of significant fat deposits. This surgery is not recommended for patients with health problems like heart disease, diabetes, or a weak immune system. Post liposuction surgery, one has to follow a diet that includes lots of lean protein, fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy and exercise regularly.
Rhinoplasty Or Nose Reshaping
Rhinoplasty or nose reshaping works by adjusting the state of the ligament or bone that makes up the nose. This surgery can also help overcome breathing trouble caused by a deformed nose, and this surgery can also be performed at any age. Haemophilic patients are advised against going through any nose medical procedure since haemophilia is a hereditary issue that curbs the body to shape blood clusters and causes extraordinary draining and simple wounding. Patients are recommended to avoid smoking before this surgery as smoking hinders the recovery process.

Botox treatment is a protected, viable treatment for barely recognisable differences and wrinkles around the eyes and the forehead. FDA has confirmed Botox for treatment of wrinkles around the sides of the eyes (crow's feet) in 2013. Botox cosmetic surgery works by hindering nerve signals and muscle withdrawals. This improves the presence of wrinkles around the eyes and between the eyebrows. It slows the arrangement of new lines by forestalling compression of facial muscles. The whole method takes around ten minutes. Post-surgery, one ought to refrain from scrubbing, kneading, or applying any strain to the treated zone and prevent the cosmetic spread to different regions of the body.
Tummy Tuck Or Abdominoplasty
Abdominoplasty is a technique that eliminates sagging stomach skin and reestablishes a firm and tone tummy. Ideal for women in their late thirties who want to treat post-pregnancy belly as they have free skin and an overabundance of fat in the lower mid-region which might not get back to its pre-pregnancy appearance otherwise. This treatment can be availed by men too. After considerable weight loss caused by healthy measures like dieting or exercise, sometimes the stomach skin will still stay flabby and sagging, and so abdominoplasty can be a good option. In any case, this surgery cannot eliminate stretch marks, although these may be removed or somewhat improved if excess skin is excised.
