Hello,

I am Dr. Lalit Choudhary, senior consultant, Department of plastic and cosmetic surgery. Today I will discuss about the one important cosmetic surgical part which is body contouring. Body contouring comprises of almost 50% of the plastic cosmetic surgery procedures and if you count contouring can be anything from head to toe but most commonly the contouring if you see in the face, you can contour the wholeness of the face, you can fill with fat graft or you can do genioplasty or rhinoplasty with the increase or decrease in the size with the many fat grafts and fillers available in the market. We as a plastic surgeon prefer to have the autogenous tissue in which is fat, then we have breast augmentation and reduction procedures which is a subject in itself and we nowadays many patients are coming up with fat injection for increasing the size of the breast rather than you going for the implants. You may require 2-3 sittings but in the end, there is no cutting, there is only in aspiration of the fat within syringe and injection of the fat with injection.

Nobody in the future can make out if you ever had any surgical procedure, nobody. So that is important mostly for the patients like of the unmarried age or who are getting married again or patients who are afraid of foreign material like silicone in the breast. So that is an important point. Then we have abdominoplasty and liposuction. Liposuction has many myths like when you do liposuction then it comes back which is commonly seen in every other patient is asking about this question. So, it is important that there is nothing like that in liposuction. You take out a number of fat cells and the residual remaining fat cells will never ever multiply in number. It is not a tumor. These areas from where we do the liposuction those areas will have now only 30 to 40% of the cells left, 60-70% will be taken out, that is how the liposuction works. It is not a weight loss procedure. It is important that it's only a body contouring procedure. You lose some weight because you take out something which is secondary.

Then after a limit if you have a overweight status like in 120-150, then obviously you need a bariatric surgery and not a liposuction or a tummy tuck. Then the next is the tummy tuck. Tummy tuck is very important. It is not just gonna help you in contouring, it also helps in future because of change of the centre of gravity with the hanging apron which is taken care of. You have back pain, knee pain and other pains in the midline because of the tummy which is bloated and hanging down. So that is taken care of with a tummy tuck and then there is muscle plication done in the midline that gives strength to the midline of the abdomen muscle, a cross set of the abdomen. So, this is very important and it is one aspect so patient who are obese but not qualifying for bariatric surgery can have tummy tuck. Then patients who are not obese they can only for the cosmetic reason come, this is not the medical advantage of loss of girth and leading to advantage of back pain and the knee issues taken care of. Only cosmetics if you see that after 2 or 3 deliveries that is hanging lower abdomen commonly seen. More and more patients are coming after the second delivery for the tummy tuck.

Patients are asking for simultaneous tummy tuck during the cesarean caesars when they are getting it done, so it's very common now. So, these are the routine contouring procedures. They can be done in obese as well as after the bariatric surgery. After bariatric surgery you do contouring of head to toe of almost everything in the body, everything hangs down but they are the patients who need the bariatric surgery for the metabolic advantage. They are often associated with thyroid and blood pressure and diabetic issues. Many of them require less those or get corrected with the bariatric surgery. So, it is not that you can get away with the liposuction or tummy tuck by not and you can avoid a bariatric procedure so there is no fight. They are very defined zones in which we have to do either.

Thank you.

Hello!

I am Dr. Lalit Chaudhary, senior Consultant plastic surgeon and Vice Chairman in the Department of Plastic Surgery in Ganga Ram Hospital. This is a very famous multi-speciality hospital and it has a teaching program also so we have the faith of the masses with us. We have a very well equipped department of plastic surgery. Now when we talk of plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery patients often get confused that they are different things. Per se cosmetic surgery is a part of plastic surgery.

In cosmetic surgery I would like to tell you- one thing is very important is that patient must be explained the possible results and that the outcome which a surgeon feels is 100% but the patient may not feel same. So they are dissatisfied. The realistic expectation of the patient must be told to the patient and kept in mind while you are taking the patient to the surgery. The procedures we have here are head to toe all the procedures like hair transplant, rhinoplasty, facelift, breast surgery, tummy tuck, liposuction. You name it and we have it. But keep in mind that every patient must be explained the possible outcomes. There are few contraindications and there are few complications associated with all the procedures which must be told to the patient. They should not be very satisfied with even the 100% result. So we do other possible associated plastic surgery subunits also like reconstructing, like on core surgery, trauma reconstruction.

In trauma we get anything from laceration to re-implant of amputated part. We do paediatric plastic surgery, patients born with congenital malfunctions like we have a smile trim project with us which is free of cost smile trim patients get the advantage of surgery. So you can contact me through either Ganga Ram Hospital portal or through the lybrate and take an appointment. I sit in Ganga Ram Hospital from 12 to 4 in OPD and we have regular OTs full time here.

Hi! I am Dr. Lalit Chaudhary, Senior consultant plastic surgeon at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital and Vice Chairman right now.

We have all range of surgeries - not just reconstructive plastic surgery but also the cosmetic surgeries with us. Nowadays , gradually the cosmetic surgery cases have gone up by more than 50% of the plastic surgery practices. More common cosmetics side patients who are coming to us, are about body contouring in both the males and females.

In males, we see nowadays very common , is the male breast tissue with enlarged breast or what we call as Gynaecomastia. It can be completely cured with a small operation which is practically scar less. Generally next day , you can join with your routine work and there is 3 weeks of weight bearing issue, otherwise table job and walking is fine.

Same in females, there is tummy tuck, breast enhancement and reduction. Most commonly for face, we come across patients coming for rhinoplasty or the nose job.  Then the hair transplant procedure where big number of patients suffering from baldness or loss of hair come.

Generally other than the cosmetic procedures, we have well-developed plastic surgery department set up at our Ganga Ram Hospital. We also practice as a clinic basis in Dwarka where we generally see the patient. There is no operation facility there. That is basically the post-op care of the pre-op care for the patient. We can see the patient of this area and surgery is done in Sir Ganga Ram Hospital only.

If you have any queries related to the cosmetic surgeries or the reconstructive plastic surgery or trauma like fingers trauma or complete amputation, right from that level to the reconstruction - may be a cancer reconstruction or a congenital reconstruction or a post-traumatic reconstruction, we have everything with us under the same umbrella in Sir Ganga Ram Hospital. If you have any issues which are from that part of it and if you stay somewhere around in Dwarka, you can come to the clinic and show it to me.

So if you have any issues related to the cosmetic surgery or plastic or reconstructive surgery, you are most welcome to contact me either at my Chisel Clinic in Dwarka or Sir Ganga Ram Hospital where we see daily from 12-4 in OPD here. We have a good team supporting us and Residency Program with us so you have round the clock care which is not present everywhere in Delhi NCR. Even in India you won't find such plastic surgery facilities. So you are most welcome to have any query with us. Take care.

How Cleft Lip Surgery Can Be Helpful?

How Cleft Lip Surgery Can Be Helpful?

Development of a fetus within a mother's womb is a complicated biological process and also involves many intricate chemical processes.

One well known deformity that has been reported fairly regularly with infants is that of a cleft lip. A statistics of average states that one baby in every 2000 births will be born with a cleft lip.
This is a condition that is easily treatable through surgery.

What is a Cleft Lip?
A cleft lip, which more often than not comes with a cleft palate as well, is a deformity where the lips of the baby's mouth aren't joined properly to the face on the upper lip. It appears to be like a slit on the upper lip that runs to the nose.

In most cases this is accompanied by the cleft palate where the slit may have the shape not just superficially, but the roof of the mouth may also be carved out in a similar shape.

Causes behind cleft lip development
Some of the factors that may lead to cleft lip and cleft palate developments are mentioned below,
Genetic - In most cases these deformities are usually passed on from one of the parents to the baby.
Medicinal - If the pregnant mother takes certain anti-seizure or anti convulsing drugs it may contribute to the defects.
Infections - If the mother gets infected with certain diseases, it may also contribute to this deformity.

Benefits and need for Cleft Lip Surgery
While for some, cleft lip surgery may be an absolutely a cosmetic procedure, for others it may be essential for correcting other issues.

Some of the major benefits of cleft lip surgery are:
Issues with eating food - With cleft lip surgery, difficulties in eating and consumption of food will be reduced or completely eliminated as many patients have reported difficulties in this area.

Speech problems - By far the most number of complaints with cleft lip deformities have been with speech problems, which the surgery along with speech therapy, can definitely help to correct.

Reducing the chance of ear nose and throat infections - Children who have a cleft lip and palate are at an increased risk of ENT infections and thus, a cleft lip correction surgery can help reduce the chances for that.

Dental problems - Another area where surgery may help is with dental problems as a cleft lip and palate is known to cause deformities in teeth as well.

What Is Rhytidectomy And How It Can Be Helpful?

What Is Rhytidectomy And How It Can Be Helpful?

As the effects of ageing set in, we all dread looking at the mirror as the image that stares back at us, is not very appealing. The dark spots, pigmentation, sagging chin, wrinkles, etc., are not something we want to admire. Almost everybody wishes to turn back time and go back to youthful, glowing skin. With this constant urge to look and feel young, cosmetic surgery has made significant advancements to restore youthful looks. One such advancement is rhytidectomy or known as facelift in layman terms.

What is it? In its current form, it does more than just remove wrinkles. It includes a combination of multiple surgeries and exercise routines, which are aimed at restoring a youthful appearance. The surgeries are aimed at removal of excess facial skin that causes the sagging, may include tightening the underlying connective tissues which are responsible for the firmness of the skin, and redraping of the skin over the face again. This is followed by an exercise regimen that continues to improve the tone of the facial muscles.

Types of facelifts: Though facelifts are advised for people above 50 years of age, depending on patient requirements, it could be done even in younger people. The type of facelift depends on the problem that is being corrected. Some of the common types are:

  1. SMAS: This is used to lift the layer of tissue under the skin which eliminates sagging in the facial and neck area.
  2. MACS: This technique is useful when there is mild sagging around the neck area.
  3. Full facelift: Reduces ageing effects from all regions of the face.
  4. Mid facelift: Sagging of the cheek area, flattening of the nasolabial folds, and eyelid surgery are done to improve the appearance of a face that is flat around the cheek area.
  5. Thread lift: Sagging in the eye, forehead, etc., can be corrected by inserting a thread and literally pulling up the underlying tissue.

Plan for recovery: Depending on the extent of surgery, facelifts require considerable time to recover. It is advisable to plan for this, be it time off from work or household activities. It is important to give sufficient time for complete recovery.

Time for results to show up: Initially, there would be significant bruising, discomfort, and swelling. These will subside over a week to 10 days but bear in mind that for the actual result to show up, it could even take up to 6 months.

Surgeon’s Experience: Choosing a right surgeon is extremely essential, as an inexperienced surgeon can do more harm than good. Have a detailed discussion and set the right expectations to avoid disappointment.
If the ageing effects are really bothering you, go ahead and get a facelift.

Facelift Surgery - Know Its Risks!

Facelift Surgery - Know Its Risks!

The skin has underlying protein layers, mainly having collagen and keratin. With age, they lose elasticity and the skin begins to sag. This is where facelift gained popularity with various techniques including Botox, chemical fillers, laser beam treatment, and chemical peels. Read on to know how these minimally invasive, economic options work in literally lifting up the face:

  1. Laser treatment: A beam of laser (usually CO2 laser) is used to make small dots on the skin with normal skin left untouched in between. This causes tightening of the tissue underneath, producing a firmer appearance which can take off years from the appearance.
  2. Botox: This accidentally discovered neurotoxin is used to treat wrinkles and sagging skin. The sagging areas of the face (usually forehead and nasal folds) are injected with Botox. The wrinkles are gone and the fine lines are lost, and the result can last for up to 8 months.
  3. Fillers: Chemicals which are naturally present in the skin like hyaluronic acid and collagen extracts are injected into the skin to fill up the underlying skin and produce a fuller, younger appearance. The lower cheeks, corners of the eyes and mouth, and area under the eyes are commonly treated by this method.
  4. Chemical peeling: The top layer is often peeled off using chemicals so that fresh, younger-looking skin is generated. This also helps in reducing pigmentation, reducing forehead lines, de-tanning, and producing a glowing, radiant, younger-appearing skin. It also can be used in other skin conditions including rosacea.

While each of these is widely popular, they come with a set of potential risks and complications.

  1. Anaesthetic reaction: Most of the above procedures require local anaesthesia and there could be a reaction to this chemical.
  2. Hematoma: There could be small hematomas in the underneath layers of the skin, which will take some time but dissolve on its own
  3. Numbness/tingling: The face has a rich nerve supply, and if any of these are touched, there could be numbness or tingling or even loss of sensation in some cases. While some may improve with time, there also could be permanent damage
  4. Scarring: In chemical peels, there could be minor incisions and therefore scarring can happen.
  5. Delayed healing: Depending on the person’s immunity, healing could be delayed, and as it is the face, social and/or professional life can be affected.
  6. Infection: As with any surgery, chances of infection arise and can be managed with antibiotics.
  7. Bleeding: As most of these are non- or minimally-invasive, chances of severe bleeding are less but still persist.
  8. Bruising: The face, in the immediate postop period, can have a bruised appearance, which will improve over 4 to 5 days.

Wrinkles - How To Deal With It?

Wrinkles - How To Deal With It?

There is a wide range of options to get rid of wrinkles. Laser treatments are considered to be one of the best ways to eradicate wrinkles for a long time. There are other treatments such as microdermabrasion, photo facials, and chemical peels as well. Dermal fillers are used to treat deep wrinkles. Wrinkles of the forehead and the eye are best treated with Dysport and botox.

There are other treatments such as microdermabrasion, photo facials, and chemical peels as well. Dermal fillers are used to treat deep wrinkles. Wrinkles of the forehead and the eye are best treated with Dysport and botox.

How Does Laser Work?

Laser treatments such as the Fraxel and the fractional CO2 make tiny pores in the skin. These pores or incisions have two purposes. The first is to make sure that the skin produces collagen and the second is to ensure that the skin heals quickly. The laser can address wrinkles in areas such as eye, face, hands and legs. Out of all the treatment plans, laser treatment is by far the costliest one. They are typically used by maxillofacial surgeons having in-depth knowledge of physiology. Treatment of this kind might require more than one session depending on the extent of wrinkles.

How Does Dermal Filler Work?

Dermal fillers are a popular method to address wrinkles and are used to destroy wrinkles around the mouth and the eye. Lasers can also diminish hollowness and dark circles near the eye. Moreover, they are very effective in making up the lost volumes of the jawline, temples, and cheeks. Dermal fillers, however, last for about a year and needs to be redone to hold on to the facial changes. They are typically safe and contain limited side effects. A consulting session with the doctor will help to know more about the potential risk of this treatment.

Removing wrinkles from under the eye-

Botox and Dysport are two of the most popular options to get rid of wrinkles under the eye region. While lasers can diminish the appearance of wrinkles, botox and Dysport can permanently get rid of it. They also ensure that the wrinkles do not come back for quite some time. Some other wrinkles that botox and Dysport can fix include wrinkles of the forehead, eye, and the brows.

How Effective Are Wrinkle Creams?

In comparison to botox and lasers, wrinkle creams are far less effective. This being said, they are extremely popular for the fact that they are readily available over the counter and are very cheap. Most wrinkle creams contain retinol that helps to increase collagen production and stimulate turnover of the skin. Wrinkle creams that are designed for the eye do not contain retinol since they are an eye irritant and can cause damage to the eye. These creams also contain anti-oxidants that help the collagen to hold their own and stop the interference of free radicals.

Moles & Freckles - How To Get Rid Of It?

Moles & Freckles -  How To Get Rid Of It?

Moles are the most common form of physical identification proof, but are often unwanted. Moles and freckles are common skin irregularities that make a person consider cosmetic surgery. Moles can be described as non-cancerous skin lesions that develop when dark skin cells are bound together in small clusters. Almost everyone has one or more mole on their body. However, freckles are simply skin discolorations that appear on light skinned people. There are a number of ways in which moles and freckles can be removed.

  1. DermabrasionThis is a procedure where a small wheel is run over your skin to remove the top layer. Dermabrasion is performed under anaesthesia and is a very effective way of removing freckles and flat moles.
  2. Laser SurgeryLaser surgery involves the use of concentrated beams of light to remove the topmost layer of skin. As this top layer is removed, freckles and light, flat moles are also destroyed thus leaving you with a clear complexion. In some cases, multiple sessions may be required to completely remove moles and freckles. Laser surgery is not recommended for large moles or moles that protrude out of the skin.
  3. Shave excision: This is a surgical procedure that involves cutting off the raised section of a mole with a sharp scalpel. It does not require any sutures, but may not remove the entire mole. This surgery is often suggested in cases where a mole had grown to protrude from the skin but the discolouration itself does not bother the person. There is a very low risk of scarring associated with this procedure but the mole may recur.
  4. Punch Excision: Small protruding moles can also be removed with a punch excision procedure. Here, a doctor will use a small cutting apparatus in the form of a small, cylindrical punch to twist and remove the entire mole. One of two sutures may be required to close the skin in this area.
  5. Surgical Excision: This procedure is suggested in cases of large moles. In such cases, the surgeon will remove the entire mole and close the skin with sutures. This procedure may leave a scar behind, but in most cases, this scar is not very prominent.

In rare cases, moles can be malignant and hence it is not recommended to try removing a mole at home. For this reason, you should always a consult a surgeon if a mole appears suddenly appears or begins to look suspicious.

Hi! I am Dr. Lalit Chaudhary, Senior consultant plastic surgeon at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital and Vice Chairman right now.

We have all range of surgeries - not just reconstructive plastic surgery but also the cosmetic surgeries with us. Nowadays , gradually the cosmetic surgery cases have gone up by more than 50% of the plastic surgery practices. More common cosmetics side patients who are coming to us, are about body contouring in both the males and females.

In males, we see nowadays very common , is the male breast tissue with enlarged breast or what we call as Gynaecomastia. It can be completely cured with a small operation which is practically scar less. Generally next day , you can join with your routine work and there is 3 weeks of weight bearing issue, otherwise table job and walking is fine.

Same in females, there is tummy tuck, breast enhancement and reduction. Most commonly for face, we come across patients coming for rhinoplasty or the nose job.  Then the hair transplant procedure where big number of patients suffering from baldness or loss of hair come.

Generally other than the cosmetic procedures, we have well-developed plastic surgery department set up at our Ganga Ram Hospital. We also practice as a clinic basis in Dwarka where we generally see the patient. There is no operation facility there. That is basically the post-op care of the pre-op care for the patient. We can see the patient of this area and surgery is done in Sir Ganga Ram Hospital only.

If you have any queries related to the cosmetic surgeries or the reconstructive plastic surgery or trauma like fingers trauma or complete amputation, right from that level to the reconstruction - may be a cancer reconstruction or a congenital reconstruction or a post-traumatic reconstruction, we have everything with us under the same umbrella in Sir Ganga Ram Hospital. If you have any issues which are from that part of it and if you stay somewhere around in Dwarka, you can come to the clinic and show it to me.

So if you have any issues related to the cosmetic surgery or plastic or reconstructive surgery, you are most welcome to contact me either at my Chisel Clinic in Dwarka or Sir Ganga Ram Hospital where we see daily from 12-4 in OPD here. We have a good team supporting us and Residency Program with us so you have round the clock care which is not present everywhere in Delhi NCR. Even in India you won't find such plastic surgery facilities. So you are most welcome to have any query with us. Take care.
