Procedures
Abdominoplasty ( Tummy Tuck)

Abdominoplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure that is popularly known as tummy tuck. This procedure is used to remove excess fat from the abdominal region and give a taut stomach to an individual who wished for it. Dietary changes and exercising is one way to keep the body sleek and taut. However, sometimes even exercising may not help reduce abdominal fat. Abdominoplasty is opted by individuals who are in dire need of losing abdominal fat. This surgery works by removing extra fat and by tightening the muscles of the abdominal wall.

A tummy tuck is not the same as liposuction, however, both the procedures can be conducted together. Abdominoplasty may seem like a simple procedure, however, it is a major surgery. Abdominoplasty should only be preferred by men and women who are in overall good health but need to tone loss excess fat from their abdomen. Women who have had given birth to several children can also opt for this procedure for the tightening of the abdominal muscles. Additionally, this procedure is also suitable for people who have lost a considerable amount of weight and now need to get rid of loose skin around their abdomen.

A tummy tuck is not suitable for the following people:

  • Women planning pregnancy
  • Individuals looking forward to weight loss
  • People worried about having a scar post surgery
Breast Augmentation

The idea of youthfulness for women has been fairly associated with how well structured their breasts are. But with time and because of several other reasons, the breasts may start drooping. This may diminish physical appeal and self-confidence.

There are many women in the fashion and entertainment industry who often go for breast augmentation surgery or mammoplasty to enhance their appearance. Many other women who feel low due to small breast size or drooping breasts undergo breast augmentation to feel better.

Women with bigger breasts, on the other hand, may decide to undergo a breast reduction. Breast reduction is also known as reduction mammoplasty.

Some of the reasons why a woman may decide to undergo breast augmentation include the following:

  • Naturally smaller breast size compared to the body as per age
  • Breasts have grown smaller or have drooped after childbirth and breastfeeding
  • Due to rapid weight loss, the breasts have drooped down
  • One breast is significantly smaller compared to the other breast due to a congenital condition or any other kind of trauma.
  • During gender transition

Drooping breasts or small-sized breasts can be a real problem when it comes to wearing clothes. A woman may also feel uncomfortable due to the non-uniformity of the two breasts or may feel heavy at times.

Breast augmentation is the second most popular surgical procedure performed on women in the US.  Silicone implants or many other kinds of gel-filled or saline-filled implants are inserted in the breast pocket to augment their size and make it look fuller and appealing.

Benefits of Breast Augmentation

  • A very simple process that does not require the patients to stay overnight
  • Morbidity and mortality rates are low
  • Enhances the overall beauty and appearance of a woman
  • Improves self-confidence
  • No visible scars left from the incision
Cosmetic Rhinoplasty

Nose plays a very important role in defining one’s personality. The entire contour of the face changes with a well-defined nose in place. Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic procedure performed on the nose to enhance its appearance. It is also known as rhinoplasty or nose reshaping. The shape and size of the nose can be changed drastically to improve the features of the face.

Rhinoplasty surgery is mainly performed for aesthetic reasons. An accident or too big or too small appearance of the nose can be given a proper shape with the help of rhinoplasty surgery. A nose can get mutilated or crooked due to some injury or accident which can be corrected through a surgery. Minor problems in breathing can also be attended.

People with abrupt or deformed shape of the nose may experience problems in breathing and subsequent problem in talking normally. Rhinoplasty surgery can help provide great relief to such people.

Nose plastic surgery is commonly performed on both men and women. In fact, it ranks third in the list of most commonly performed cosmetic surgeries. The shape of the nose can be altered through rhinoplasty by addition or removal of bones, cartilage, and tissues or by performing grafting.

Liposuction

Liposuction is a common cosmetic surgery performed to remove stubborn fat from the skin. It is also known as lipoplasty and suction-assisted lipectomy. This procedure is performed by an experienced cosmetologist or anaesthetist to give a sculpted look to the body and beautify the overall look of the individual with proper contouring.

Liposuction is not meant for weight reduction. Large amounts of fat cannot be removed by this process. A maximum of a quart (litre) can be removed through liposuction surgery. It is not meant for cellulite removal. For such results, liposhaving is more effective. However, many surgeons believe that the areas containing cellulite may improve in appearance after liposuction is performed.

There can be regions of the skin that have localized fat. Such regions may include calves, abdomen, thighs, and arms. If these regions are resistant to diet and exercise, then a liposuction surgery is performed to remove them.

Liposuction is the most commonly performed cosmetic treatment among both men and women. It aims to extract the extra fat through a suction device to give a more toned look to the body. The finishing of such surgeries is extremely important.

Mentoplasty

Mentoplasty or chinplasty, and also known as genioplasty, is the surgical procedure by which chin line or chin can be corrected or improved to enhance the overall appeal of a face. The word mentoplasty has its origin from the Latin word “mentum,” which means “chin” and Greek word “plassein” refers to the word “formation.” With the help of a well-defined chin line as per the rest of the face, more masculine or feminine features are enhanced.


Mentoplasty or chin implant surgery can be a solution for quite a number or abnormal conditions. For a more youthful look, many consider facelift as well. Malformation of the chin resulting from developmental abnormalities in the jaw bone can be a reason. At times, any one side of the jaw has been growing, while the other side did not result in the asymmetry of the face. Congenital agenesis is a condition wherein some of the jaw bones are missing.


Chin implants give shape to a chin that has grown out of proportion compared to the rest of the facial features. The size and shape of the chin are different among men and women. As a result, many people choose to have a mentoplasty done along with their gender transition surgeries.

At times mentoplasty is included as part of craniofacial reconstruction following cancer treatment or any other kind of trauma. In an orthognathic surgery, the facial bones are realigned to enable the patient to talk and chew normally. Mentoplasty can also be combined with this.


Mentoplasty and chin implants are mainly used in adults since the jaw bone has already acquired its full size and form and there are no chances of any permanent tooth coming up in the gum. The procedure is mostly performed on people with small chin to increase its size.
