Body Lift Surgery after Massive Weight Loss- Important Things to Know

After massive weight loss following either bariatric surgery or diet and exercising, the skin loses its elasticity and sags. This may result in self-consciousness in patients, general discomfort, vulnerability to skin infections and clothes not fitting properly.

The major skin sag usually happens in the abdominal region, upper arms, face, neck, breasts, thighs, and buttocks giving a misshapen body contour.

The most common changes that occur as a result of the loss of fat and tissue elasticity are:

  • Flattened breasts with nipples pointing downwards
  • Sagging upper arms that appear loose
  • Extended abdominal area around the sides and lower back
  • Sagging groin, thighs and buttocks

Thankfully, plastic surgery has an effective solution to this problem- Body Lift Surgery.

Body Lift

Body Lift is an excellent treatment option that helps in removing excess skin, tightening loose muscles and even removal of the fat left behind.

It results in improved body contours and is usually the last step after massive weight loss to achieve a shapely body.

Body lift surgery is usually divided into various categories -Lower Body Lift, Mid Lift, Upper Body Lift and Full Body Lift.

The patient may choose either of these procedures depending on the location of extra skin and his/ her concerns.

It is important to note that the body lift is a highly customizable to the unique needs of the patient.

Besides, body lift is a complex surgery and needs a well trained and experienced surgeon. If you are sure you need a body lift surgery, you should find a board certified surgeon who is well trained to perform the procedure.


It is of utmost importance that you have a stable body weight for at least three months before you opt for a body lift plastic surgery.

If you are still in the process of losing weight, you should wait till you have lost all the excess weight or do not plan to lose any further weight.  The ideal scenario is to have a stable weight for at least last six months to a year when you undergo the surgery, else the results may get compromised.

Ideal candidates for total body contouring are males and females who:

  • Have lost 40 to 50% of the excess body weight
  • Are above 18
  • Have stable body weight for at least three months
  • Suffer from loose, droopy skin around your abdomen and/or other parts of the body
  • Do not have any medical condition that may impair healing
  • Are Non-Smokers
  • Females who do not plan to become pregnant after the surgery (as that may compromise the results)
  • Are in good physical and mental health
  • Have realistic expectations from the surgery.

Lower Body Lift

Lower body lift usually sets the stage and is performed on the sagging abdomen, outer thighs and hips and waist are corrected. The commonly done procedures under lower body lift are:

Tummy tuck / Belt Lipectomy - Also known as the belt lipectomy, the incisions extend around the body to remove excess skin and fat from the entire belt.

Circumferential Thigh Lift – Uplifts the skin of thighs circumferentially.

Butt Lift – Uplifts skin of the buttocks, and gives them a fuller and youthful appearance.

Thigh Lift- Tightens the inner thighs by removing extra skin and tightening the loose muscles. Groin area is also corrected at the same time.

Mid and Upper Body Lift

When the concerns of the patient include upper and mid body also, a mid-body lift and upper body lift are also recommended.

It is, however, important to note that these are extensive procedures and cannot be done at the same time. Your cosmetic surgeon would guide you about the procedures that can be combined and what should be the gap between the procedures.

The Upper and Mid Body lift may comprise the following procedures. However, since every patient’s concerns and requirements are different, the surgery is customised.

Breast Lift

Breast lift surgery uplifts the sagging and flat breasts and gives them perky appearance. Sometimes a breast implant may also be used to improve the shape and size of the breasts.

Midsection Lift

When the concerns of the patient are not just the breast or chest in males, but the loose skin under the arms or at the upper back also, a midsection lift is recommended by the cosmetic surgeon. Midsection lift gives a 360 degrees correction of the upper back and loose skin around the chest.

 Arm Lift

In massive weight loss patients, the skin of the arms also becomes loose, giving bat wings kind of an appearance, which is corrected by an arm lift.

Arm lift, also known as Brachioplasty removes the sagging skin from the upper arms. The procedure is performed by making an incision on the inner side of upper arm resulting in well-toned arms and youthful contours.

Face and Neck Lift

After major weight loss, the facial skin loses elasticity resulting in drooping of cheek pads,  jowls appear and jawline becomes ill-defined.  The skin of the neck also becomes loose and sagging.

The face and neck lift tones up the facial and neck skin and raises the cheek pads, corrects jowls and removes loose skin. Face and neck lift give fantastic results and leave little or no scars giving a rejuvenated and younger looking appearance.

 Body Lift Cost

Since body lift is a highly customised surgery, the cost of body lift varies with the unique requirements of the patient. The cost depends on various factors, the most important of which are listed below:

  • Type of Body lift you undergo- Whether you need just an upper body lift, or lower body lift or full body lift determines the price you pay for the surgery. If the surgeon works on full body, the cost is definitely much higher than just working on upper body or doing a limited lift. Typically a full body lift in the USA may cost anywhere between US $15,000 to $25,000 and can even go up to US $50,000.
  • Whether or not procedures are combined- When doing a full body lift, your surgeon may choose to combine a few procedures or may want to stagger them to avoid long duration of anesthesia to aid in swift recovery. This decision depends on your medical condition and the surgeon’s preference. When the procedures are staggered, the cost is higher as compared to combining procedures and doing them at the same time.
  • How much fat you have- Patients who need liposuction to remove extra fat before the procedure will have to pay more for the liposuction than those who only need the body lift.
  • Surgeon’s experience- It is well known that an experienced surgeon charges more than a novice surgeon. However, since body lift is a major surgery, you should not compromise with health and safety just to save a few dollars.
  • Place where the surgery is performed- The cost of any plastic surgery varies greatly with the location where the surgery is being done with great variation from one country to another and significant variation within the same country also.

For example, the cost of body lift in US varies from $15,000 to $50,000, £ 10,000 to £ 30,000 in UK, AUD 25,000 to 60,000 in Australia; whereas in a country like India, full body lift costs around $7000-8000 with the same quality of services and with surgeons equally qualified and experienced.

Body Lift Surgery Cost in India

The cost of Body lift in India is a fraction of what it costs to get the surgery done in any Western country.  Even if you add flight and accommodation, the cost of body lift in India is much cheaper than undergoing the procedure in US, UK, Canada or Australia.

This in no way means compromising on the quality. India has few of the best cosmetic surgeons in the world, they are board certified and are well experienced, hospital facilities are excellent, language is not a problem- the doctors, nurses and all medical staff speak English, there is no waiting time and your surgery remains confidential.

You can also combine your trip with a visit to an exotic location in India which most of the travelers love to do before their surgery.

5 Reasons Why You Should Choose Plastic surgery in India

We at IndiCure know that we live in a ‘I-am-too-busy-to read-all-the-stuff’ world.

So how about we give you 5 quick reasons why you should get plastic surgery in India.

1.       Highly Skilled Plastic Surgeons:

An Amazing Cosmetic Surgery Begins with an Amazing Cosmetic Surgeon

The above lines are very popular in the world of cosmetic surgery.

What do you care about most when you opt to undergo plastic surgery?

That you get the best results possible.

That you are treated under highly skilled medical staff who can bring about changes that they promise. That the cosmetic surgeon in whose hands you place your trust is not just knowledgeable but also experienced.

No one wants to risk getting plastic surgery done by under-experienced doctors in third world countries so as to save a few bucks.

We realize that. Precisely why we choose for you the best cosmetic surgeons in India, whose expertise and skills have been thanked over and over by hundreds of satisfied clients around the world.

2.       Excellent Hospital Infrastructure

It isn’t just the doctors who matter. It is equally necessary to be treated in a safe and friendly environment. India has some of the best hospitals dedicated to plastic surgery.

Not only do they have highly sophisticated medical infrastructure at par with those in the developed nations, but they also offer personalized services to its patients.

We understand that because each of us deserves to be treated as per our own unique needs, you get exactly what you need.

3.       Privacy

Plastic surgery is a private affair. Talking about getting a nose job or boob lift can get media attention for Hollywood stars, but for us –No, thank you!- we would still not like the world to know what we did with our breasts, face and butts.

Some might call it an embarrassment. But we consider it a deeply personal issue. Is there a better way to ensure privacy than opting for plastic surgery abroad?

You do not have to stress about the nosy interventions by your family or colleagues.

4.       English speaking staff

Getting into an alien land where you cannot converse with its inhabitants can sure make up a good story. That is, if you are the listener and not the protagonist of the story.

Most of us do not realize how much we take the gifts of communication for granted unless we get involved with people who do not speak or understand our language.

Do not worry, medical staff in India do speak good English. You would not have to face language barriers in India’s hospitals.

5.       Cosmetic surgery + Vacation= Cosmetic surgery Holiday

India is a unique country! You would have heard a lot about its amazing diversity, rich cultural heritage, and picturesque locations.

Travelling to India for plastic surgery in India can prove to be one of the best decisions you ever made. You could club it with a trip to an exotic location in India and make it one of the most memorable times in your life.

But, why have we not talked about the low costs yet? After all, that is what attracts many to India, the land where plastic surgery originated?

Because we wanted to tell you that cheap costs are not the only reason why thousands of clients across the world choose to get their cosmetic surgery in India done. Cheap costs are inevitably our no.1 USP,  but isn’t the only one.

10 Important Tips When Choosing Cosmetic Surgery in India

So, you have decided to get your cosmetic surgery in India.  After all plastic surgery in India is much affordable, doctors are highly qualified, language is not a problem and you always wanted to visit India for her cultural and natural attractions.

You have searched the internet are completely confused with the plethora of information available. There are numerous surgeons, hospitals, medical tourism companies all boasting about them being the best and offering prices cheaper than the other.

So, whom to choose?

And since India is a large country, you are not sure, which part of the country is the best place to be.

We as a decade old company understand your requirements well when you plan to choose your plastic surgery abroad.

Here are 10 important points that would help you make the best of your trip for cosmetic surgery to India:

1. Let COST BE NOT THE ONLY deciding factor- Though cost is a very important factor in choosing the provider, let cost be not the ONLY deciding factor.

Please understand that cosmetic surgery is a serious business and correcting a botched up surgery can prove to be much more expensive than original surgery.

It is a matter of your health and life, so, make an informed decision and let not cost be the only deciding factor.

2. Choose the Right Procedure- It is very important to know about the procedure you plan to undergo and understand what it can do for you.

For example, you may need a tummy tuck for removing extra skin and fat from your stomach, while thinking that liposuction on your stomach would do a great job. There is no harm in spending a few dollars on getting a consult with a renowned plastic surgeon locally.

There is thus no harm in spending a few dollars on getting a consult with a renowned plastic surgeon locally to be doubly sure of what procedure you would need.

3. Understand about the procedure, risks, and results FOR YOU:  It is important to know the duration of surgery, anesthesia, and risks associated with the surgery you choose and results YOU can expect.

While tummy tuck can do wonders for a lady with ideal body weight and with the loose belly, but can only bring some improvement in your shape if you have a high BMI.

It is thus important to understand the results and limitations of the procedure FOR YOU.

4. Choose your Surgeon carefully- 

An amazing cosmetic surgery begins with an amazing surgeon.

It is of utmost importance that you choose a good cosmetic surgeon in India who understands your requirements and is well trained and experienced.

Following are few things you should know about your surgeon:

  • Plastic surgeon’s training and experience
  • Is he certified and a member of recognized national and international plastic surgery societies
  • Does he speak and understand your language well
  • Is there a place where you can verify his credentials
  • References of the past patients operated by him
  • If you can have a telephonic or video conference with the surgeon

5. Know about the facility where your surgery would be done- It is important to know about the facility where the surgery would be performed.

Following are few important things you should know about the facility:

  •  Is the facility accredited
  • What is the infection rate
  • Would you be assigned a private nurse
  • Would you stay in a private or sharing room
  • Would your surgery be done in the same surgery room as other infectious cases
  • Policy of the hospital on HIV positive cases

6. Package Inclusions- Few providers may give you quotes that may seem very cheap on the face of it. But make sure you clarify what all is included in the package, else you may end up paying much more than you had thought it would cost.

Few things that usually are not a part of the package but you would be charged afterward are:

  • Follow up consultations and dressings
  • Pressure garments
  • Medicines on discharge
  • In land transport
  • Accommodation after discharge from hospital
  • Air port transfers
  • Local taxes

7Which city would the surgery be done: It is good to know which city would be the surgery done at – whether it has an international airport or no, or whether you would be driven for hours after a long flight.

A metro city or an A class city usually has the infrastructure and ecosystem for foreigners, whereas smaller places may be good for adventure tourism, but not good for recuperation after the surgery.

8. Follow up care: It is very important to know how the follow-up care would be handled, and whom you need to contact should you have any issues after you go back home.

9. Company whom you are dealing with:  You can judge the experience and expertise of the people you are dealing with through the communication you have with them and how well they handle your queries.

A professional medical tourism provider would take your queries seriously and would make efforts to provide you complete information and not cut corners just to sign you for the procedure.

It is always good to pick up the phone and speak with the person you are dealing with, to know how sincere and professional he/she is.

10. Past references:  Asking for references is always helpful. A reputable medical tourism company who has happy clients would not shy away from giving you references of previous patients who can share their experience with you.

Though there are many good cosmetic surgeons, hospitals and medical tourism providers who can arrange your cosmetic surgery in India, there are many who may not be well trained or qualified or may not just understand your requirements and expectations and not stand by what they promised you before your arrival.

It happens in India like it happens anywhere in the world. You must be cautious and careful in finding the right and reliable provider for your sojourn to India. It is very important to have someone trustworthy to be at your side especially after the surgery in a foreign country.

IndiCure is the largest provider of cosmetic surgery tourism in India. With hundreds of happy clients from across the world, IndiCure understands your requirements very well.  For more information about your plastic surgery in India, write to us at or call us at +91 93200 36777 or +1-877-270-2448 (US Toll Free) or talk to us at skype@IndiCure



Breast Reduction and Tummy Tuck at the same time?

Breast Reduction with Tummy tuck

‘Can I have the breast reduction and tummy tuck at the same time?’ or “Is it safe to combine” Is it safe to combine a tummy tuck with the breast reduction?” are very common questions asked by women looking for body contouring plastic surgery.

It makes a lot of economic sense to combine the procedures. More so, if you are traveling abroad for cosmetic surgery.

Besides economics of it, the advantages of combining the tummy tuck and breast reduction together are many.

  • You get complete body makeover in one sitting
  • Recovery time is combined
  • Time taken off from work is single
  • One time anesthesia is required
  • One time hospitalization is required
  • If you are traveling abroad, one-time air ticket and one-time expenses are involved.

However, we asked one of the prestigious cosmetic surgeons in India, Dr Mukund Jagannathan, a highly accomplished surgeon to know how safe and effective is it to have a breast reduction and tummy tuck at the same time. His opinion goes as follows:

His opinion goes as follows:

Major procedures like Breast Reduction and Tummy Tuck are staggered or combined depending on various factors including expected time taken for the surgery, the health condition of the patient and her hemoglobin levels, anesthesia time and type of anesthesia, blood loss during the surgery besides others.

While combining the two procedures, the total surgical time is definitely reduced, but not to a great extent.

It is noteworthy that breast and tummy are adjacent to one another. Therefore they cannot be done simultaneously by the surgeon and his assistant without coming in each other’s way. One procedure has to be almost finished before the other starts.

Also, since both are major procedures and should be taken very seriously, there are certain critical points in each of these surgeries. Till they are tackled, the primary surgeon cannot leave one and start another part.

Another overwhelming consideration is total operative time per session. If it goes more than 6 to 7 hours, it is not definitely not good for the patient.

It is universally accepted that it is better to give anesthesia in two sittings spaced a few days apart. i.e. It is preferable to have one 6 hour and one 3 hour procedure a few days apart rather than a single 8 and half hour procedure.

Safety is the first consideration in procedures like this. It is always safer to stage the case and do one or more of the procedures in order to ensure a safe outcome.

When we do stagger the two procedures, we always prefer to do the tummy first and while she is in the ward recovering from it, then do the breast, so that total recovery time is telescoped into one.

However, if the patient to be operated does not have huge breasts and tummy and the surgery can be finished within 6- 7 hours on one sitting, it is definitely better to combine the two procedures in view of the advantages listed above.

We definitely consider this for patients coming from overseas, specially because the cost of airfare and accommodation and various other things go up. We break down the procedures but do them in one visit only WITHOUT compromising on the safety of the patient and the results of the surgery.

Thus the bottom line is that if there is not too much work and both the procedures can be finished within 6 to 7 hours, it is ok to combine it.

However, If there is much work to be done on tummy or breasts or both; it makes sense to split the procedures in the interest of the patient.

Recovery time and overall duration are slightly prolonged and the cost goes up by a bit, but patient safety is the prime consideration and that cannot and should not be compromised for any number of advantages combining the procedure offers.

Body Lift after Weight Loss- Everything You Wanted to Know

Losing massive amount of weight may look like a daunting task, but advancements in Obesity and metabolic surgeries have now helped the obese overcome this challenge.  Massive Weight loss to the tune of hundreds of pounds is common after bariatric surgeries like Roux- en-Y and VSG, however, the bigger question is- Is that the end of the journey?

No, in fact, it is the beginning of another journey- the battle to overcome miles of loose skin, instead of piles of fat! The situation may sound disheartening, but there definitely is a solution.

When a patient undergoes massive weight loss, the skin loses its elasticity and is not able to bounce back to its original shape, thus hanging loose. This leads to the excess skin around tummy, flanks, back, buttocks, thighs, arms and loose hanging breasts in the case of females and excess skin on the chest area in males, typically all the areas where one tends to lose weight from. This is when the need for Body lift arises.

What is Body Lift Surgery?

Body Lift is a comprehensive surgery, which addresses skin laxity and refines the tone and shape of tissue underneath by removal of excess, sagging skin. The procedure is extremely effective and makes a huge difference in the body contours. It gives a firmer and taut look, greatly boosting the confidence and body image of the individual.

Benefits of Body Lift Surgery:

Body Lift surgery is the “Go to” procedure for patients with massive weight loss as it corrects the circumferential descent and gives an overall improvement to the patient. The various advantages of Body lift surgery are:

  • Circumferential correction at multiple body areas
  • Much better and defined body contours with taut appearance
  • Better fitting clothing
  • Enhanced self-esteem and positive body image
  • Relief from rashes and other skin problems caused due to excess skin

Types of Body Lift:

Body Lift or Full Body lift surgery is an umbrella term, under which come different areas of the body, which may or may not be treated at the same time. Depending on the areas of laxity, Body lift surgery may be divided into Upper, Mid or Lower Body Lift.

Lower Body Lift

Lower Body lift surgery, medically known as Belt Lipectomy, is the starting procedure for a Body lift. The procedure corrects the mid- section of the body, including abdomen, flanks or love handles, lower back, buttocks and outer thighs. This involves a circumferential incision, which goes 360 degrees around the body. The procedure also involves tightening of the abdominal muscles by bringing the splayed right and left sides together to give a flat and taut abdomen. The surgery is done under general anesthesia and takes around 4-6 hours, depending on the extent of extra sagging skin.

Benefits of the procedure include:

  • Removal of excess skin in front giving a flattened tummy
  • Removal of excessive flank laxity
  • Raising of the descended buttocks
  • Tightening of the outer thighs

Upper Body Lift

Similar to the Lower body lift, the Upper body lift is a circumferential 360-degree surgery, which corrects the upper half of the body, including the breasts/ chest area, lateral sides of the chest, upper back and arms. The procedure also corrects the skin rolls on the back and gives a smooth, taut contour.

However, unlike Lower body lift, body lift surgery for upper half is more flexible and can have variations, wherein an extended breast lift and arm lift surgeries can be done, as per the patient’s needs and requirements.

Though the body lift surgery greatly improves the body contours, like all resection surgeries, there are scars involved. Nonetheless, these are given in inconspicuous areas and gradually fade away with time.


Frequently Asked Questions Body Lift Surgery


  • Can Upper & Lower Body lift surgeries be combined together?

It is not a good idea to combine upper and lower body lift surgeries, since both work in different directions. Most senior surgeons advise staging the procedures with a gap of around 3-6 months in the two procedures, for best results.

The two major reasons for not combing upper & lower body lift surgeries are:

  1. Both are major surgeries and long procedures ranging from 3-6 hours each, so combining these would make the surgery very long and thus the anesthesia time would be extremely long, which is not very safe for the patient.
  2. The second important reason is that both surgeries work in opposite directions- In Lower body lift, the buttocks and lower back is pulled up and depend on the blood supply of lower back, whereas in upper body lift, the upper back and lateral chest area are pulled down and bank on the blood supply of upper back, thus both working in different vector directions, with chances of compromised blood supply.

Also, staging the surgeries gives the patient sufficient time for recovery.

  • Why do I need a 360-degree body lift after massive weight loss, rather than a tummy tuck, since my major area of concern is tummy only?

Abdominoplasty or Tummy Tuck does not work in patients with massive weight loss since the descent is 360 degrees, all around the body. Doing a tummy tuck, which takes care of the skin on the tummy and part of flanks, will leave chasing the skin excess on the sides and back and thus this skin will hang loose even after the surgery.


Notice that tummy tuck would have addressed only the loose skin of tummy whereas body lift takes care of loose skin all over

  • What kind of anesthesia would be used for my Body Lift surgery?

Since body lift surgeries are long procedures, they are performed under General Anaesthesia for the complete comfort of the patient.

  • Is it a good idea to combine Liposuction with Body Lift?

As a general rule, it is not advisable to combine extensive liposuction of an area which is also to be resected, like in a body lift. This is so because of the following reasons:

1. In patients with massive weight loss, the skin has already been stretched to more than its physiological limits. The skin is elastic but upto a point. If it is stretched beyond this limit, it loses the ability to contract when the fat has been removed. Which is why the skin sags and the excess skin has to be surgically removed.

2. Liposuction is a rapid means of removing fat. When this is performed under a skin which has already been stretched beyond a limit, one cannot expect the skin to contract and give a good contour, it will further sag.

3. Another reason is that the liposuction sets up an area of ‘injury’, where the cannula is injected, which may cause issues of wound healing, fluid collections, seromas etc.

There are very few areas where liposuction can be performed in people who have undergone massive weight loss, for example, the arms, and limited abdominal liposuction in the tummy area.

Body lift surgeries are life changing procedures, so it is very important that you choose your surgeon carefully. The surgeon that you choose to work with should:

  • Be well qualified and have board certification
  • Have adequate training to perform Body lifts
  • Be deft and well versed with various types of body lift procedures
  • Make you feel comfortable and should be available to answer your queries
  • Have good bedside manners
  • How do I prepare for my Body Lift surgery?

As a general rule, you need to be fit, active and healthy prior to your surgery. This will not only allow your body to tolerate surgery better but will go a long way in assisting early and effective recovery.

The basic preparation required for the surgery involves:

  1. Diet: Please stick to a ratio of approximately 40:30:30 of proteins, carbohydrates, and fat before your surgery. Eat lots of fresh veggies and fruits. Drink lot of water.
  2. Do plenty of exercises. This keeps the blood flowing especially from the legs, and reduces the chances of deep vein problems.
  3. Smoking is a complete no-no. Smoking can cause delayed recovery, wound breakdown and increased risk of infection. In any case, smoking needs to be completely stopped for 4 weeks before and after surgery.
  4. Alcohol too should be avoided, for at least a couple of weeks before and after surgery.
  5. Medications: It is extremely important to have a list of all medications that you are taking. Some of these may have interactions with medicines that are used after surgery. Any intolerance, allergy or anything like this should be mentioned.

It is really important that any and all information be passed on to the surgeon and anesthetist for their review.

Daddy Do-Over, Cosmetic Surgery for the Other Half


While mommy makeovers or makeover for women have become pretty common nowadays, the other sex has been more or less stereotyped to not care about his looks and hence, not work on oneself.

However, in the past two decades, the acceptance for male cosmetic surgery has gained quite a prominence. And so has the term “Daddy Doover” or Cosmetic surgery procedures for the daddies to turn the clock back on them.

Changes in the Male Physique

The male physique goes through enormous change twice in their lifetime- once during puberty and the second, during the late 30s. As the hormonal makeup of the body changes, it is no longer able to metabolize food like it used to when the body was younger.

This is when fathers realize that each beer contributes to the sagging and aging of the body. Moreover, at this age, men are preoccupied with their careers and family commitments (attend to the needs of their growing kids), leaving no time for exercise and non-invasive techniques of the likes.

From husbands who gain sympathy weight during their wives’ pregnancy to father’s who have a fully chalked out schedule, cosmetic surgery has time and again proven to be the most effective solution available for a rapid daddy do-over.

Advantages of Daddy Doover:

  1. Minimal downtime: Although some rest and precautions are required, most people tend to resume work within few days.
  2. Long lasting and visible effects.
  3.  Increase in Confidence   

Most Popular Plastic Surgery for Men

There is a wide range of corrective surgeries designed to reverse the toll that stress and aging take on men.

1.      Liposuction:

Liposuction targets the main areas that tend to accumulate fat like the lower abdomen, love handles and pectoral regions. The procedure involves the removal of fat in these areas by creating a small incision and the application of mild vacuum to suck out the fat.

It can effectively remove nearly 10% of the body of fat in one go. The surgery is fairly quick and patients report feeling some tenderness after the fat is removed.  Patients can resume activities the next day.

Liposuction is ideal for those who have a borderline weight and need the surgery just to take care of some extra fat that’ll give definition to their body.

2.      Male Breast Reduction:

The fat that gets accumulated in the chest area is often stubborn and can be very hard to remove through exercise and diet. This is where breast reduction surgery comes into the picture.

Recent research indicates that enlarged breast tissue is seen in nearly 40-50% of middle-aged men. A medical condition called gynecomastia also causes augmentation of the breast tissue.

This is caused by low levels of testosterone that affects the growth of the body.  It can also be a side effect of some medicines (antidepressants, steroids, and drugs like marijuana).

Breast reduction surgery can be done either through liposuction alone or in cases where there is excess glandular tissue that makes the breast look enlarged; an open breast reduction may also be required.

The surgery takes less than one hour and patients can return to work within a week.

The appearance of breasts in men is often embarrassing and can be the root cause for lower self-esteem among fathers. This simple surgery is a viable treatment option for men.

3.      Male Eyelid Surgery:

Puffy eyes can impact one’s overall look. Fatty tissue in the eyelids can even make one look perpetually tired.

The eyelid surgery involves tightening the eye muscles and the removal of fat.

It can be done either under general or local anesthesia and takes about 1-2 hours.

Most men are pleasantly surprised with the drastic difference that this surgery makes to their facial appearance. It takes away the tired look and makes the face look quite younger.

4.      Chin Implants:

A study conducted by Dr. Darrick Antell correlated the presence of a prominent chin to success. According to him, the prominent chin in men displays power, status, excellence, and authority.

Moreover, it is a common physical characteristic found in most successful people like CEO’s and celebrities.

Chin implants are placed under the chin tissue to augment or enhance the chin. This procedure is done using local anesthesia and the implant is removable. The implant reduces the presence of a double chin by increasing the vertical height of the chin (from lower lip to the jawbone).

Male chin implants are best suited for men who have a weak chin or double chin that makes the face look older.

5.      Jawline and Neck Reshaping:

Most women rate the jawline of a man to be the most impacting factor that contributes to man’s sex appeal. As men age, the skin loses its elasticity and creates a fleshy and weak jaw. A weak jawline is considered to be effeminate or soft. The reshaping surgery involves liposuction and creating a contour by removal of excess fat.

  1. 6.      Brotox:

Brotox is the quirky term coined for botox procedures designed for men. This is a non-invasive procedure and involves injecting the toxin botulin. Botulin paralyzes certain skin muscles that spasm and causes wrinkles and skin aging. One can still use the rest of the facial muscles and it does not limit facial expression in any way. The procedure is very simple and involves very little recovery time.

Other options:

Technology has advanced to include several ways to keep the body young and fit. Facelifts, Neck lifts, and Kybella, Laser skin resurfacing, Brow lifts, Arm lifts, Butt lifts and implants are some of the other options used by men.  Of course, it is better to try dieting and exercise before going under the knife, but these surgeries are handy when the conventional methods fail.

Cosmetic surgery in India:

Even though an increasing number of people are turning to cosmetic surgery for preserving their youth, the downside of these procedures is the toll it takes on one’s finances.

An excellent alternative is to travel to countries like India for more cost effective treatment. India offers experienced doctors and surgeons, along with good infrastructure and state of the art equipment.

In fact, many American fathers plan a family vacation to India and undergo their cosmetic surgery while they are enjoying the delights of the country. Now, that is a perfect multi-tasking dad!

Top 10 Frequently Asked Questions about Breast Reduction Surgery

image result for breast reduction

Breast Reduction- Frequently Asked Questions

Breast reduction is a commonly performed procedure on women to reduce the size and weight of heavy breasts. Breast reduction surgery results in aesthetically pleasing breasts which are in proportion with the size of your body.

Breast reduction involves removal of excess skin, fat and tissue from the breast thus making them look youthful, perky and proportional to your body. It also lifts the saggy breasts and brings them to where the breasts should be!

While most patients undergo the procedure for its physical benefits to get rid of pain in the neck, shoulder and back, there are many cosmetic benefits of breast reduction surgery as well.

  • The breasts are lifted giving them a youthful and perky appearance
  • Your body looks more proportional
  • Stretched areolas and large nipples are reduced during the surgery making breasts attractive
  • Swimsuits and fitted clothes look better boosting your self body image and self esteem.

Here is the list of Top 10 Frequently asked Questions about Breast Reduction surgery.

1.       What is the right age to undergo breast reduction surgery?

There is no “right” age to undergo breast reduction. You should be more than 18 years and should understand the procedure well. If you are planning to breastfeed in future, it is best to wait till you are done with it. You are a good candidate for breast reduction if you are physically healthy, emotionally stable and have realistic expectations from the procedure.

2.       How long does the surgery take? Is it very painful?

The surgery takes anywhere between 2-3 hours depending upon how extensive the surgery is to be done. Breast reduction is done under general anesthesia, so there is no pain during the surgery.

It is normal to feel moderate to severe pain during initial recovery period viz 48-72 hours, but that can be controlled with pain medications.

3.       How long does the recovery after breast reduction take?

It is normal to have swelling and bruising for few weeks after the surgery. You would be advised to wear a medical bra over the dressings for the first week. The stitches are removed after a week to ten days and you would be advised to wear the medical or sports bra for several weeks after the surgery.

Sedentary work can be resumed in about ten to fourteen days while strenuous activities and weight lifting need to wait for 6-8 weeks.

Contact with the breast should be gentle for four to six weeks. It is normal to have some pain in breasts for few months during menstruation.

4.       Where are the scars? Are they permanent?

The scars from breast reduction are permanent. They may appear lumpy and red for few weeks before they look like thin and faded lines.

There are various techniques to perform breast reduction and each technique results in different incisions and scars.  However, the incisions are made in the crease of the breast and below the areola and you can thus wear low cut tops and swim wear without revealing that you under went the knife.

image-result-for-breast-reduction-incisions 5.       Should I get Breast lift also with Breast reduction?

Breast reduction results in reducing the size, improving the shape and lifting the breasts. All in all, the goal of breast reduction is to give you youthful and perky breasts and thus breast uplift is a definite result of the procedure. You need not separately ask for or “pay” for breast lift when you are choosing breast reduction.

So essentially, when you choose breast reduction, you get a breast lift. But when you choose breast lift, you may or may not get breast reduction.

6.       Which is the best technique for the surgery?

There is no “Best” technique for breast reduction. The technique chosen depends on the surgeon’s expertise and experience in that particular technique, your body shape and expectations.

This can be discussed with the surgeon during face to face discussion and you and the surgeon can decide the best technique for your surgery.




7.       When will I be able to see the results?

 Because breast tissue is significantly disturbed during the surgery, the swelling may take up to six months to a year in few cases to fully subside. The final results of the breast reduction surgery are thus visible after the swelling completely subsides.

8.       Are the results of Breast Reduction surgery permanent?

Breast reduction will result in youthful, perky breasts that last for many years. However, there would be some effect of aging and gravity on it.

In spite of this, women who undergo breast reduction are more likely to have lesser sagging of breasts during old age.

9.       Would I be able to breast feed the baby after breast reduction surgery?

Plastic surgeons all over the world have mixed opinion on this. Some surgeons say that you can definitely feed your baby after the surgery while some say that you won’t be able to do that. However, there would surely be some degree of compromise on your ability to breast feed.

If you are planning to breast feed your baby after breast reduction surgery, talk to your surgeon before the surgery. He would choose the appropriate technique and would leave the mammary ducts undisturbed as much as possible for lactation.

Though this would be a trade off for excellent results, you would get rid of pain in your neck, shoulder and back and would be able to enjoy a more proportionate body and at the same time breast feed your child.

10.   Will my health insurance pay for Breast reduction?

This depends on your plan. Most insurance companies do cover breast reduction if you have medical problems such as neck pain, back and shoulder pain because of excessively heavy breasts. However, if you need breast reduction only for aesthetic reasons, insurance does not cover it, because cosmetic surgeries are usually not covered by insurance.

Liquid Face Lift Fast Catching Up Among Men and Women With Busy Lifestyles

If you have entered your 40s and feel you already look 60, you are not alone! Today’s stressful and extremely fast and mechanical life is taking a toll not only on people’s health but also their appearance. Premature ageing has become normal these days.

effect-of-stress-on- face

Stress makes you look older than you are

Statistics by American Society of Plastic Surgery shows that Face lift is one of the most sought after cosmetic surgery procedure these days. However, not all people are candidates for face lift surgery and a liquid face lift is just the right option for these old looking young!

Liquid face lift refers to injecting  fillers in the face for a rejuvenated appearance. Fillers:

· Help restore volume in the face to give a more youthful look

· Reduces wrinkles, creases, folds and lines

· Rested and energetic look

There are many options of fillers which include Radiesse®, JUVEDERM®, Sculptra.

A very popular option among many plastic surgeons is fat as filler.


Rejuvenated appearance after fat transfer to face

Fat offers many advantages as a filler.

Advantages of liquid face lift with fat transfer to face:

· Minimal downtime

· Less invasive than conventional face lift

· Long lasting results, much better than other fillers which need to be repeated at regular intervals

· No artificial products put in your face, instead uses your own body fat

· No chances of complications or rejection

· No side effects

Fat from other body areas is removed and injected to the face to give the face a youthful look. Sometimes PRP (Platelets Rich Plasma) is also mixed to the fat which enhances the results.

The other major advantage of fat transfer is that fat is removed through liposuction from areas where there is extra fat. This gives good contouring to the area where liposuction is done and the same fat is processed and purified and injected to the face for a rejuvenated appearance.

Liquid facelift is fast getting popular among people with fast and busy lifestyles. The most important reason for its popularity is minimal downtime after the procedure. Unlike traditional face lift where your face is swollen for many days and you are not supposed to be in public eye to avoid revelation that you underwent the knife, liquid face lift is just a day care procedure. You can get the procedure done and fly back as soon as after a day of the procedure. Many medical tourists from Western countries are thus flocking to India to get the procedure done, especially those who are too busy to take two weeks off their busy schedule.

However, it is important to note that there definitely is a difference in results of invasive face lift and liquid face lift and not everyone is a candidate. The procedure definitely has limitations and those should be discussed with the surgeon. Besides, not all surgeons are trained to perform fat transfer to face. You should look out for a well qualified and experienced surgeon who is well-trained and experienced to perform the procedure. After all it is a matter of your face!

Liposuction at multiple areas: Way to go for that shapely body

You needn’t be a movie star to have, at some point in your fitness journey, been completely vexed by those pockets or islands of fat that refuse to budge, and unless you are genetically blessed, those islands are often a network of scattered archipelago. Thus the moniker- ‘trouble zone’, the harsh truth about trouble zones is that there is no amount of exercise or diets that can spot reduce.


But the good news is-MEDICAL SCIENCE. Owing to the increased interdisciplinary collaboration, research and development in biomedicine, backed by a strong biotechnological support, medical and surgical fields are in state of ever evolving, flux. Consequently, cosmetic procedures too, have undergone an over haul. For example, Liposuction, a procedure that started off as a therapeutic adjunctive treatment to morbid obesity gradually became a fundamental of most Cosmetic and Aesthetic surgeries, and one of the most routinely opted for, that too!



Liposuction is no breaking news to the world anymore. In simplest terms, it is a suction assisted lipectomy (lipo-fat tissue; ectomy-surgical excision or removal). Performed usually under GA,  liposuction can be safely performed at multiple areas.  The procedure lasts anywhere between 1-3 hours dependent on the number of areas involved.


Liposuction Procedure

Liposuction – Procedure:

Inconspicuous incisions, commonly called, “stab” incisions, are placed in cosmetically safe zones to prevent any obvious post-surgery signs or scars. The area is then infiltrated with a local anesthetic mixed with a vasoconstrictor or “tumescent” fluid, to reduce blood loss and provide postoperative pain relief. Following this small metal rods aka cannulae are used to, physically break the fat tissue which is eventually removed via suction.  A compression garment is placed over the area for appropriate skin shrinkage. Due to the recent advances and multiple devices flooding the cosmetic surgery arena, various techniques can be employed to disintegrate the fat tissue. Based on which it can be either: – Tumescent or tube assisted, Laser or power assisted or Ultrasound assisted. This advent thus further reduces patient discomfort, bruising, post surgical “down-time” and better skin shrinkage, therefore, liposuction at multiple spots in a single sitting easier and hassle free. Liposuction can be performed as an isolated surgery , but is often clubbed with other body contouring surgeries as well. It perfectly compliments procedures like ‘mommy make-over’ or the now popular ‘daddy do-over’. Body contouring, for that matter is an advanced, elaborate liposuction, only more comprehensive as it involves liposuction-lipografting –reshaping and reattachment.



Healthy Lifestyle, regular exercise and clean diet, may still not be able to dent that stubborn chunk of fat. Liposuction, at all those tiny trouble zones will eliminate them at one go and enhance the results of an individual’s hard work. Now, who doesn’t like their efforts acknowledged? Near ideal body weight and otherwise fit individuals, shying away at mention of snug tops, for the want of that elusive flat stomach or the enviable toned triceps. Well you can eat a muffin and yet eliminate the muffin top and bid the “bye-bye muscle “ a silent good bye , all in one sitting. Post-pregnancy. That word alone speaks for itself. The body, from the breasts, to waistline to the hips, undergoes an unrecognizable change. In a busy world, between career and children, shaping up a post partum body is a herculean task. Multi spot liposuction, targeting the ABT- Abs-Butt-Thighs, is a prayer of every woman, answered in a surgeon’s office. Full Body Rejuvenation- you need not be a young mother struggling with her weight.  Urban lifestyle, leave little time and room for taking care of self. Stress, packed schedules coupled with ageing take a toll on the body. Also hormonal imbalance, often result in gynaecomastia or “male boobs” often a cause of concern and embarrassment for a lot of men. Nowadays, men and women of all age groups desiring a full body re-contouring have the option of liposuction at multiple areas in one single treatment. If you think it’s tough to get a svelte waistline as a woman, ask a man who is constantly trying to balance between ripped biceps and the six-pack abs. Between eating enough to keep the muscle on, but not too much else it conceals the abs, it is a tight rope they walk. Liposuction at all those zones teamed with augmentative surgery help make the fitness journey easier.  


The question is why not?  Why go through a) additional cost of the operatory, Anesthetist and the surgeon’s fees, b) a fresh batch of pre-operative stress c) another one of the post-operative discomfort d) and the risk of infection or blood loss that any surgical procedure carries. When you have a trusted surgeon, your body goals chalked out, funds appropriately managed; its wisest to go for liposuction at multiple areas and walk out with contours that turn heads. A meeting with the surgeon, explaining what you want to achieve, also allows for the doctor to suggest procedures that would augment the final results. For example if someone is aiming to correct the fat on the back and wants more feminine contours, liposuction can be followed by lipo grafting, wherein fat is injected into the breast tissue or the glutes or even face for a more rounded, softer and youthful appearance. The troublesome trouble zones may be just a couple of inches but localized fat deposits often create a disproportionate and asymmetrical contour. So whether you are a fitness junkie, or a wellness addict, a young mother or a daddy attending the son’s wedding, there is something for everyone. Allow yourself a little Indulgence, followed by indulging and investing in yourself to get a desirable waistline, defined physique and a more sinewy stature to attain that body that was always just slightly beyond your reach, those “last few inches” or “that last layer” hiding your abs, that you worked so hard, to get, let it show now.
