Cosmetic Surgery in India - Why You Should Consider It

Plastic surgery comes from the Greek word plastikos, which means to fit for moulding.

The origins of plastic surgery can be traced to India in approximately 600 B.C., when the practitioner Sushruta, reconstructed criminals and prisoner's nose's and earlobe's that had been amputated.

Today, it is fitting that cosmetic surgery in India is again in the news, as its cosmetic surgery industry flourishes.

Here are three reasons why more and more people from overseas are considering India for their plastic surgery treatments:

The Growth of Cosmetic Surgery in India

Medical tourism is behind the growth of plastic surgery in India. This is where residents of one country seek to reduce the costs of their medical treatment at home, by finding cheaper alternative treatments abroad (and take a free holiday with the savings) and they are looking at countries like India.

India combines world-class healthcare with prices costing a fraction of those in the US or Europe.

India is now the leading country promoting medical tourism in the world and growth in the industry is currently running in excess of 30% per annum.

Medical tourism is now a multi billion pound business.

India is even moving into a new area of "medical outsourcing" where subcontractors aim to provide services to over stretched healthcare systems in western countries, such as the UK National Health Service.

The Indian education system at present is training an estimated 20,000 to 30,000 doctors and nurses each year to meet the demand for increased medical services.

The Expertise of Cosmetic Surgery in India

Everyone has heard horror stories about botched plastic surgery operations, so is India a destination that can be trusted? The answer is a resounding yes. In fact India's private medical facilities are on par with any in the world, and Indian doctors, medical staff and plastic surgeons are renowned the world over for their expertise.

Plastic surgery in India offers some of the best facilities combined with plastic surgeons whose expertise is equal to the best available in any country.

The Price of Cosmetic Surgery in India

While Indian healthcare is renowned worldwide, the growth in medical tourism has seen a large part of this growth come in plastic surgery.

The concept has broad appeal, as Indian private facilities offer advanced technology and high-quality procedures on par with hospitals in the major industrialized countries at a fraction of the cost, with some treatments just a tenth of the price of comparable western hospitals!

Plastic and reconstructive surgery In India utilizes the latest techniques to cover all areas of cosmetic surgery including:

· Hair restoration, (hair implants, hair flaps, and scalp reductions)

· Rhinoplasty, (reshaping or re-contouring noses)

· Face lifts

· Eyelift

· Brow lift

· Submetal lipectomy

· Demabrasions

· Laser hair removal

. Otoplasty

· Chin and cheek enlargement

· Lip reductions

· Surgery for breasts

· Liposuction

All of these are available and many more, so whatever plastic surgery is required India can fulfil your requirements.


When you add up all the facts that include:

World class medical facilities, staff with unrivalled expertise, costs at up to 1 / 10 of those in major industrialized countries and the opportunity to take a holiday in one of the most beautiful nations on earth, then it is time to discover India.
