Indian Cosmetic Surgery Refines Itself
Higher Awareness About Cosmetic Surgery Gives Indian Plastic Surgeons A Boost
Demand for plastic surgery in India is surging, and Indian plastic surgeons are seeing their practices booming from both local and foreign patients seeking out many different procedures.
A growing and prosperous domestic middle class are quickly opening up to the idea of aesthetic plastic surgery, whilst foreign cosmetic tourists are finding the concept of Indian cosmetic surgery more and more attractive due to the relative low prices and rising stock of indian plastic surgeons.
Whilst the expertise and experience of top plastic surgeons in India has never been in doubt, with many famous actors and actresses from Bollywood receiving good plastic surgery for years, it has taken a little longer for word to really get out.
Top Indian Plastic Surgeon Dr. Manwani Talks About Indian Cosmetic Surgery
Dr. Manojkumar J Manwani M.S., D.N.B. is an Indian plastic surgeon who has been practicing aesthetic plastic surgery in Mumbai for over 25 years. His Cosmetic surgery clinic is regarded as one of the best in the whole of India, with both a large clientele of bollywood celebrities and a steady stream of foreign cosmetic tourists.
He told the Cosmetic Tourist that he feels there is an ‘increased awareness of cosmetic surgery in India’ which is down to the proliferation ‘of digital and social media’ that has helped shift public consensus towards a much more positive view about undergoing plastic surgery in India and beyond (you can read more about the effects of social media and plastic surgery in our article written with an eminent New York aesthetic plastic surgeon here).
So is it fair to say that nowadays there is a lot of good plastic surgery to be had within the Indian cosmetic surgery industry? Yes, says Dr. Manwani, who states that ‘Cosmetic surgery procedures are now more refined and safe’ before explaining further that plastic surgery in India is now readily available not only in the big cities but also ‘small cities because [of a] new generation of plastic surgeons who have learned cosmetic surgery procedures are now offering it to the local population.’
Where Are The Top Indian Plastic Surgeons Based?
Whilst the proliferation of Indian cosmetic surgery and plastic surgeons continues to spread across the country, is it fair to say that Mumbai (the largest city in India) is still considered the best place to have plastic surgery in India?
Dr. Manwani feels that Mumbai remains the ‘cosmetic hub’ of Indian cosmetic surgery and host to many of the top plastic surgeons due to a combination of factors; Such as Mumbai being the ‘financial capital of India’ and also having close proximity to Bollywood and other creative industries, there is always a steady stream of ‘Actors and Models’ who expect good plastic surgery that adhere to high international standards.
This combination of high demand, high finances, and the celebrity factor can certainly explain why Indian plastic surgeons based in Mumbai have, in Dr. Manwani’s own words, ‘maintained a high quality of service.’
Popular Procedures Within Indian Aesthetic Plastic Surgery
As with many countries with a burgeoning middle class, aesthetic plastic surgery demand for certain looks is gaining rapidly. Whilst Dr. Manwani and his cosmetic surgery clinic offer many kinds of cosmetic and aesthetic surgery procedures, we asked him if he was aware of any current trends within Indian cosmetic surgery.
Based on the amount of procedures from his own clinic, the doctor says he is finding ‘Rhinoplasty, Liposuction, Gynecomastia Correction, Breast Augmentation and Breast Reduction are the more frequently performed procedures’.
These popular cosmetic surgery procedures can definitely be linked to a population who are not only richer, but more susceptible to social media imagery influences than ever before, especially as cosmetic tourism within India has stayed the same for the last 5 years or so, according to Dr. Manwani.
This current stabilization could turn back to growth soon, with more and more Indian plastic surgeons performing cosmetic procedures at prices that are a lot lower than elsewhere, whilst still conforming to the highest of international standards.
It is no wonder that many potential cosmetic tourists are now taking plastic surgery procedures in India a lot more seriously than ever before.
As with all cosmetic procedures, it is important to do your research first! You must always look into a plastic surgeon's qualifications (board certified, etc). Many countries have highly qualified doctors, specialists, and clinics that adhere to the highest international guidelines, but it is always wise to verify these first.
