Cosmetic Surgery, Plastic Surgery


The taboo and norms seem to have liberated for Plastic Surgery in India. The era has widened its views towards Plastic surgery. People have realized the value of being presentable externally, boosting their personality and self-esteem. The adage "Plastic surgeries are financially not everyone's cup of tea", is a myth, even in a country like India. The surgeries are not incredibly expensive.

As per the recent survey by International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS), India ranked 4th, with a number of patients seeking plastic surgery at 4.3%, whereas the US topped the list with 18.6% surgery taking place, followed by Brazil with 10.7% and South Korea with 5.3%.

Surprisingly, India being 4th, accounts for 13.5% medical tourism especially from UK and UAE, as medical procedures are not adequately catered in their respective countries.

Moving further, the turmoil between Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeries is strongly prevalent amongst masses.
