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.

Thank you so much!
