Hi,

I am Dr. Adhishwar Sharma, Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon. Today I will talk about lymphedema. It is a fluid which is collected in the body after arteries supply the blood and vein take away the deoxygenated blood. Lymph is the fluid which is collected by the body. It plays an important role in immunity and the body. It helps in fighting infections, cancer and other things.

The primary cause of lymphedema is genetics, congenital infantile. Various cancer treatments spread lymph nodes. They remove lymphatic vessels which gives rise to lymphedema. So, the treatment for lymphedema is congested & decongested therapy, pressure garments.

For any help or query, you can contact me through Lybrate.

Thank You.

Hello Everybody,

I am Dr. Adhishwar Sharma, Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon. I have a special interest in brachial plexus injury both adult and pediatrics. In children, it is known as obstetric brachial plexus injury (OBPI). Mainly it occurs in overweight babies, pre-diabetic mothers or diabetic mothers. Birth canal obstruction is the major cause of these injuries. Now, these injuries have various types. There can be small traction or complete palsy. The amount of injury to children is less and growth potential is great. And with proper surgery, physiotherapy and management limb can be restored. Coming to the types of injury, it could be minor little bit tractions in injuries which recovers within 3 months and it could be a serious injury which shows no signs of recovery.

Treatment of each patient is individualized. The basic outline of the management, in 1st and 2nd month we do physiotherapy in order to keep joint soft and supple. In 3-6 months if there is no development of bicep or not showing any sign of recovery than a child needs surgery on an urgent basis. We usually prefer to do nerve surgery till 3-9 months. A surgeon can decide to operate the children and to move the neurolysis and nerve transfers. Once the recovery comes, the muscles which are more powerful and recover early or if they do not recover fast they may develop contractures.

For which botox is required along with physiotherapy. Once the child reaches 2-5 years of age if the surgery is going at the expected stage. If the child has not undergone nerve surgery or botox also, they start developing shoulder deformity for which they need muscle and tendon transfer in order to achieve good shoulder function. The patient often develops deformities of elbow, wrist, fingers, and thumb. This needs straightening of all these deformities. All these are conducted by physiotherapy and results especially in children are great. With these, a child could get a good life.

Thank You.

Briefing on Brachial plexus injuries

Good morning, everybody I am Dr Adhishwar Sharma I am a plastic surgeon with a microvascular training I have done my MBBS from MKCG Berhampur, Odisha in 1992. We recently celebrated 25 years of entry in MBBS course and followed by after finishing my MBBS in 1997 I went in 98 I joined PGI Chandigarh, where I did my training in joint surgery and after finishing my joint surgery training and passing MS Joint surgery I work for another 3 years in PGI as a registrar followed by 3 years in Civil Hospital, Karnal and then I joined Jensen plastic training in Safdarjung Hospital, New Delhi which is one of the most largest departments of plastic surgery in India. After finishing my in 2010 I join 2007 and I finish in 2010 and from 2011 and 12 I spend doing fellowships in hand surgery and head and neck surgery in which I learned about the microvascular surgery, hand surgery above treatment of breaking blood cells which is my passion and my keen interest in treating patients of red blood cells and preferred nerve surgery. And then I spend another 6 months in head and neck Namrata learning head and neck surgeries, how to do head and neck reconstruction and various head and neck tumor management and other things and in 2012 generally I entered practice and briefly about and then I was working in Central Hospital Faridabad for 2 years then nowadays I am mainly working in Fortis Gurgaon and little bit of my work is there in Metro Hospital Faridabad and plus I do my own clinic in Brahmanand clinic in Faridabad which is located in near BK Chowk, NIT. And I want to talk about by the key passion that is brachial plexus injuries, my brachial plexus injuries are basically nothing but the flex of nerves which comes from the cervical cord and it supplies the from downwards from shoulder to hand, it control every movement of your hand. So hand is a very critical and very key component of human body. It’s a key means you're not gainfully employed, your potential is a human being is not fulfilled, if you don't have a functional and upper limb and from function upper limb including the hand. So these injuries are nowadays increasing because they are of mainly two types one is paediatric injuries and other is adult, paediatric is mainly birth canal injuries children are their plexus is damage during birth and these are basically low and other is the adult injuries, adult injuries are mainly high-velocity injuries suffered by the teenagers or the young adults during while driving motorcycle or having fallen from height and there are few injuries which are caused by tumors and hydrogenic dissection during an injury during surgery or another thing. So main bulk 90% of causes from the roadside traffic accidents and you see the breaking plexus injury doesn't kill the person but it effectively puts a person out of his employment and his social life, he is handicap for life unless he that armed he is functions are restored and that person cannot achieve its economic potential as well as potentially a human being. So treating these injuries and having these injuries is not only rehabilitate human being but you also make society more productive. So we have a lot of experience of treating these injuries in my clinic and Fortis Gurgaon and this thing I have done more than 200 cases of these injuries and I have been writing a blog about as a plastic surgeon, as a doctor, as a human being, we touch so many human beings in my life time and in my practice, so I have been writing all those interesting stories in my blog Brahmanand Clinic at BlogSpot and Brahmanand Clinic at WordPress, there are two blogs and there is another 3rd blog herbs and breaking plexus injuries.blogspot.com. So if you visit this blogs you will see how as a plastic surgeon, as a doctor we test that people's lives and we make them more productive and we conclude to the society. Thank you very much.

How Get Rid Of Facial Hair Permanently?

Women are usually conscious about her look and prefer to actively participate in all kind of sports, and wear all kind of clothes. It becomes embarrassing when hair appears in the places like face, abdomen, neck, underarms or leg, and prevents them from wearing skirts and sleeveless clothes.

But with the advancement of technology there are numerous ways to get a rid of unwanted hair growth all across the body and it can give you a permanent solution from your factors that holding you back.

The treatment involved in hair removal:

Laser treatment is a successful way to remove unwanted hair from your body.  This is a non-invasive method designed specifically to remove unwanted hair from all parts of the body. It is done with the help from long pulse light through the actively cooled ‘cooling tip’ of the laser machine that effectively deactivates unwanted hair follicles, which impairs its growth and selectively damages the root of unwanted hair permanently. During the Light Sheer process, the hair is treated gently while maintaining a healthy and normal appearance of the surrounding tissue.

Steps involved in hair removal treatment:

  1. Usually, the treatment areas are shaved before the few days of hair removal treatment.

  2. An anesthetic cream may be applied on the day of laser treatment.

  3. Both the patient and the doctor must wear sunglasses in order to avoid harmful rays.

  4. The power, size and frequency of the pulse is adjusted in order to optimize the treatment for the patient’s comfort.

  5. The duration of the treatment depends on the size of the area to be treated

  6. The laser uses safe light to remove unwanted hair from all over the body within few minutes.

  7. The entire procedure is guided with the help of a computer.

How long does the treatment take?

The laser treatment may take few minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the area to be treated. Hence the facial hair treatment may take around 10 minutes. Whereas, treatment for back hair or both legs may take up to 60-80 minutes.

5 Common Myths You Must know About Rhinoplasty

5 Common Myths You Must know About Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure (for cosmetic or reconstructive purposes) that is performed to reshape the nose as per one's requirement. Also known as a Nose Job, Rhinoplasty takes care of a host of nasal problems including an asymmetric nose or an enlarged nasal tip that can subject one to public embarrassment and mental agony, shattering their confidence into a million pieces. In spite of its effectiveness and high success rate, there are many misconceptions or myths related to Rhinoplasty that needs to be addressed.

In this article, we will bring forward some popular myths that have long been associated with Rhinoplasty so that people can understand the procedure better.



Myth: Rhinoplasty, being a surgical procedure, can be extremely painful leaving the face, especially around the eyes and the nose bruised that may take months to heal.
Fact: While some pain and bruising are inevitable (especially immediately after the surgery), severe bruising or excruciating pain is rare. In most cases, the pain or the associated discomfort do not last for more than a few hours following the Rhinoplasty. In extreme cases, a person may take a day to recover.

Myth: More than often, the incisions made in Rhinoplasty results in severe scarring of the nose.
Fact: A rhinoplasty may be an open or closed type. In Closed Rhinoplasty, the incision for the surgery is made inside the nostrils. Thus, chances of a visible scar are almost negligible. On the other hand, in the case of an Open Rhinoplasty, the surgeon makes the incision in such a way (across the columella, mostly in the shape of an inverted V) that the scar is negligibly visible.

Myth: Every individual, irrespective of their age can undergo Rhinoplasty
Fact: Not all individuals with a nasal problem can undergo Rhinoplasty, especially

  • Boys below 15 years and girls below 14 years (for rhinoplasty, the facial structures should be fully developed).
  • People under immense mental stress (such as depression, stress, anxiety, and related psychological problems).


Myth: Getting the surgery done by an experienced surgeon will ensure 100% success with no revision required.
Fact: There is no denying the fact that the choice of the surgeon is critical when it comes to Rhinoplasty.There are surgeons and health practitioners who undergo extensive training to perform Rhinoplasty. With an experienced surgeon, the chances of the surgery being a success will undoubtedly be strong, but having unrealistic expectations may not be a wise idea.There may be instances where an individual may require a revision (though not very often) following the surgery.

Myth: A person is always given a general anesthesia during Rhinoplasty.
Fact: The nature of the anesthesia depends on the type of the nose surgery. While a major nose surgery does require a general anesthesia, local anesthesia is often used for surgeries to correct the nose tip (or Rhinoplasty for minor nasal problems).

Botox: 8 Busted Myths You Need To Know

Botox: 8 Busted Myths You Need To Know

Botox is a wrinkle treatment, but is used for treating a range of medical conditions. It has been in use for well over 18 years and is considered to be safe when performed under the guidance of a medical practitioner. Apart from aesthetics, a range of other facial, migraine and dermatological problems can be addressed by Botox.

Myth #1

Botox limits facial expression: The primary objective of a Botox treatment is to enhance the look of a person and not the contrary. When administered by a skilled physician, you can still smile and animate like before. Botox in no way affects the sensory nerve. The muscle beneath the point of injection gets relaxed and remains active. The apprehension of limited facial activity is baseless.

Myth #2

Botox travel through your body: This again is a myth. Botox diffuses not more than 1cm into the skin. Due to its localized nature, it does not affect any other parts of the body other than the intended area.

Myth #3

Botox has toxic content: Botox like any other drug is safe when taken under supervision. Like other drugs, it too gets scanned by the drug regulatory authorities. It is neither dangerous nor contains any toxic substance.

Myth #4

Dermal fillers involve intense pain: Dermal fillers are not as painful as advocated by many people out there. It does have its fair share of discomfort but a medical practitioner always uses a topical anesthetic and other anxiety related medications during the treatment.

Myth #5

Downtime for Botox is fairly long: Botox is known as the afternoon injection for its convenience and easy procedure. Botox procedure has no downtime at all. Doctors often suggest against lying down for a good 2-3 hours after the injection. Dermal fillers might result in minor swelling but there are medicines to counter that too.

Myth #6

Botox is permanent in nature: By far this is the biggest myth of all. Botox shots last for no more than 3 months. For people who take Botox shots regularly, the effect might last a little longer. As soon as Botox is discontinued, the muscles go back to their own position. This phenomenon is known as atrophy.

Myth #7

Dermal fillers and Botox are the same: While people these days use them interchangeably, they are not the same. For instance, Botox lessens the effect of wrinkles by relaxing the facial muscle whereas dermal fillers add volume to the tissue and restores the muscle.

Myth #8

Botox is applied only when Facial lines are visible: This is not necessarily true. If the family of an individual has a history of facial lines, it makes sense to start Botox for facial line prevention. This delays the actual facial line appearance and requires fewer Botox shots going forward.

How To Prepare Yourself Before Breast Reconstruction?

Cancer can be very devastating, it can tear families apart. The cancer virus generally kills all the healthy cells in your body and starts to destroy your organs one by one. When a person is affected by breast cancer, their breasts have to be removed so that the cancer virus doesn’t affect the rest of the body. In the society which we live in we are fed with the notion that breasts are an integral part of a woman’s body and only voluptuous breasts make a woman look more attractive. Survivors who have won the fight against breast cancer have had to surgically remove their breasts for survival.

They are left with an empty spot in their body as well as their lives. So, in such cases breast reconstructive surgery becomes extremely important. Breast reconstruction surgery implants a mound in place of the actual breast. So that it looks like an actual breast with the nipples and the areola.

How to get ready for a breast reconstruction surgery?
1. You should quit smoking if you are a regular smoker.
2. Avoid certain vitamins or supplements as prescribed by your doctor before the surgery.
3. Take someone with you to stay back during and after the procedure for moral support and to assist you with your stay in a hospital.

Possible complications:
1. Infection can occur after the surgery.
2. Hematoma or pooling of blood.
3. The implants can also break through the skin.
4. The implants can rupture and the silicon or saline can leak from the breast tissues.
5. Hard scar tissues can form around the implant.
6. It might not be enough for a woman who has had larger breasts.
7. Implants don’t last life-long. It needs to be replaced after a point of time.
8. Radiation therapy might damage the implants.
9. It can leave a scar from the region where the extra tissue was taken for constructing the breast.

Methods of breast reconstruction surgery:
1. Tissue expander
2. Flap reconstruction
3. Abdominal flaps

7 Tips To Get Rid Of Wrinkles

7 Tips To Get Rid Of Wrinkles

Wrinkles are a normal yet unsightly sign of aging, which can come about due to various reasons including too much exposure to the sun, poor diet, excessive smoking and drinking, lack of proper sleep, advent of age, loss of moisture and elasticity as well as collagen, which creates a smooth and supple look, and other such reasons. Cosmetic and plastic surgeons are now turning to a variety of methods to lessen the pronounced look of wrinkles and remove them for younger looking skin. Here are a few methods currently in use.

1. Fillers: Fillers like collagen and others including poly lactic acid, Calcium Hydroxlyapatite and Hyaluronic acid can be used to restore the elasticity of the skin even as they provide precious hydration. These injectables can be used on the face as well as the hands for a smooth and supple look.

2. Botox: To get rid of the lines on the forehead and to prevent the onset of more pronounced wrinkles, Botox or Botulinum Toxin Type A is a favoured element used by many cosmetic surgeons and dermatologists. This is usually administered via injection.

3. Retinoids: This is administered with a surgical procedure in order to remove uneven pigmentation as well as the roughness of skin, which sets in with age and excessive smoking and sun exposure. It may cause skin peeling and redness.

4. Laser: The use of laser resurfacing can also help in stimulating collagen production of the skin, which restores some of its elasticity so that wrinkles may be removed and further wrinkles prevented.

5. Surgery: The use of surgical methods like face lifts, brow lifts and other cosmetic processes can help in giving the skin a tighter look which does away with the appearance of wrinkles. These are usually minor procedures from which one will heal fast.

6. Dermabrasion: This method is a surgical one that basically sands the surface of the skin in order to remove the wrinkles. It can cause side effects like permanent discolouration of the skin as well as scarring for particularly sensitive skin.

7. Peels: Glycolic acid peels and deeper peels that use elements like Salicylic acid can be used to go deep into the skin and making it smooth again. It basically makes a difference to the fine lines. There is a chance of side effects like scarring, bruising and general discolouration in this method as well.

Adequate sleep, good nutrition, avoiding excessive sun exposure and a good skin care regimen can help in keeping wrinkles at bay for a long time. Moisturising with products that contain plenty of vitamin A and E can also help in reducing fine lines.  In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Complications And Types Of Breast Implants

Complications And Types Of Breast Implants

One of the leading types of cosmetic surgery in the world is breast augmentation through implants. These implants are prosthetic inserts which are put into your breasts surgically to enhance the look, shape, feel, size, and balance in your body. Although these are primarily used for cosmetic purposes, they may also be used for reconstructive surgery after an accident or after mastectomy (breast removal surgery).

Types of breast implants
There are primarily two types of breast implants: Silicone and saline. The sacs that contain both forms of implants remain the same. The sac holding the material in both the cases is made out of silicone. The two primary types are explained below

  1. Saline implants: As the name states, saline implants are sacs filled with saline water. In the case of saline implants, the sacs are inserted into the breast through an incision. After the sacs are put inside the breast, they are filled with saline water and once the desired shape, contour, and size are achieved, the implants are sealed off and the incision is closed.
  2. Silicone implants: In this type of implant, the sac is pre-filled with silicone gel. This option is considered to have a more natural look and feel as it resembles human fat. The size of the implants however has to be decided beforehand. The doctor will make an incision on the underside of the breast, where the crease lies and then insert the implant into the breast. The incision is then closed and after healing, the scar will be hidden under the crease of the breast.

Considerations before surgery
1. Complications 
This form of cosmetic surgery is one of the most commonly performed around the world. However, there could be a few complications that can arise after the surgery –

  1. Infection after surgery
  2. After surgery, scar tissue formation may cause the shape of the tissue to change
  3. The implants may leak or rupture
  4. Pain in the breasts
  5. Change in the breast sensations and the nipples (although in most cases this temporary)

2. Other considerations post surgery
Some of the other considerations that you might have to consider before surgery would be –

  1. Breastfeeding: While some women have stated that they were able to breast feed successfully after an implant, others have reported problems. Thus you may need to talk to your doctor about this especially if you want to have children post surgery.
  2. Complications in getting a mammogramMammograms to check for breast cancer and growths in the tissue may become complicated as the implant will block a straight view. However, pictures from other angles can be taken.
  3. Getting breast implants won’t stop your breasts from sagging: If you have sagging breasts, then you will need to opt for a breast lift surgery instead of breast implants as implants won’t correct sagging.
  4. Breast implants may not last a life time: Breast implants may require to be changed after a few years as your body shape may change and you may gain or lose weight. Implants may even rupture or leak, resulting in the change of the breast shape and thus, may require corrective surgery again.

Facts You Must Know About Lip Augmentation

Facts You Must Know About Lip Augmentation

Lip augmentation is a restorative (cosmetic) procedure where your lips are reshaped to make them appear fuller. Cosmetic procedures are done for aesthetic improvement, but surgical lip augmentation is performed if the lips are affected by any congenital condition or tissue trauma.

Dermal fillers are mostly used to enlarge the lips. Previously, collagen was the most popular filler, but currently, due to various health reasons, doctors do not use it as often as before. Now, hyaluronic acid fillers are the most popular dermal filler.

Hyaluronic acid is naturally available in your body, especially in your neural, epithelial and connective tissues. The fillers that doctors presently use are chemically similar to hyaluronic acid. It is extremely beneficial in adding volume to your lips.


Applications of Hyaluronic acid

  • Hyaluronic acid fillers improve your lips’ appearance by boosting their shape, structure and volume.
  • The effects of such fillers last approximately for six months; you would require more injections after that.
  • Restylane and Juvederm are the most popular hyaluronic acid fillers used currently. These also contain lidocaine in them, which is a local anaesthetic.

Hyaluronic acid fillers also include the following benefits:

  • The amount of filler to be injected is easily controllable, so the doctor can regulate the amount of volume to create.
  • The injections are given at a steady pace, so the development can be carefully monitored to achieve the desired result.
  • Any bump or lump caused by moving the lips too much is easier to correct.
  • In relation to other dermal fillers, there will be reduced swelling and bruising.
  • Results last for a longer duration, but they are not permanent.
  • Collagen fillers required an allergy test before the procedure could begin, but that is not the case with hyaluronic fillers. Hyaluronic acid fillers are not allergens since they are made from similar substances found in the body.

Risks of lip augmentation
Like every surgical procedure, lip augmentation too has certain risks involved. Some of the contraindications (situational dangers of certain drugs or procedures) include:

Breast Reconstruction - Things You Must Know About It!

Breast Reconstruction - Things You Must Know About It!

Breast reconstruction is the surgical procedure of creating a new breast shape. In some cases, it is done after the removal of the whole breast or part of the breast. In typical cases, breast reconstruction surgeries take place during or after mastectomy, which is the surgical procedure of removing a woman's breast. But it can be done even years after a mastectomy.

1. Factors to consider before opting for the surgeryConditions like obesity, smoking, diabetes, cardiac dysfunctions and high blood pressure are few of the many points that should be considered before opting for reconstruction. The presence of these conditions may complicate cases and in some episodes may pose a significant threat to a patient's life.

Also, women diagnosed with breast cancer or at a high risk of developing such in the future may have to opt for mastectomy. In such cases, the doctor may suggest breast reconstruction after the process.

2. The process of the surgery - Typically, breast reconstruction surgeries are done using an implant. Implant breast reconstruction includes the restoration of the shape and volume of the breast. The newly formed breast will not droop with age and may appear higher than the other one.


Implant reconstruction is also useful for women with small and firm breasts as it avoids the need for other extensive surgeries. 

Another type of breast reconstruction would include a procedure where one's own tissue is used. Tissue from the abdomen, buttocks, and inside of the thigh is generally used to replace the existing breast tissue. Similar to this is the procedure where a patient's own fat is processed and used to create a breast. This is commonly known as fat injection.

3. Limitations of a breast reconstruction surgery - There are certain limitations present in the process of breast reconstruction. Reconstructed breasts will not look or feel exactly the same way as before. Several appointments and cosmetic treatments might be required to obtain the best results. In usual cases, reconstructed breasts do not have a nipple. But one can be created using surgery at a later date. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
