WHY INDIA?

Cosmetic Plastic Surgery is at the same time one of the oldest and one of the newest surgical specialties. Indians were reconstructing noses 700 years before Christ! On the other hand, the American Board of Plastic Surgery was founded in 1939.

Cosmetic Plastic Surgery evolved into its modern form following the reconstructive challenges of the second world war, although its origins precede the Indian Sushrut Samhita (about 600BC).  Rishi Sushrut is known as the father of plastic surgery & author of Sushrut Samhita, a unique encyclopedia of surgery, Circa 5 - 4th century BC. He is credited with performing the world's first rhinoplasty, using anesthesia and plastic surgery. When surgery was in its infancy in Europe, Sushrut was performing Rhinoplasty (restoration of a damaged nose) and other challenging operations in India.

Even presently, India has one of the best qualified professionals in each and every field, and this fact has now been realized the world over. In Canada, America and Britain, when you read the names of doctors in hospitals, every third or fourth doctor is an Indian. Regarding Medical Facilities, India has the most competent doctors and world class medical facilities comparable with any of the western countries. With the best infrastructure, the best possible medical facilities, accompanied with the most competitive prices, India is a lucrative destination for your cosmetic surgery requirements at the lowest charges.  Simply speaking it is “First World treatment at Third World prices!” The cost differential across the board is huge: only a tenth and sometimes even a sixteenth of the cost in the West.  Cosmetic surgeries in Western countries cost three to four times as much as in India.

Additionally we can provide you with other services such as accommodation, transportation and post treatment recuperative holidays etc.

An increasing crowd of foreigners - medical tourists, as they're sometimes called – are coming to India in search of high-quality, low-cost medical care and cosmetic surgeries.  Along with that they get to discover India as a tourist destination at the same time. India attracted 150,000 foreign patients last year the numbers are increasing.  The past year, more Americans and Europeans have come, fleeing staggering costs and long waits at home. The biggest demand is for Cosmetic Plastic Surgery.  Many patients come to India because cosmetic surgery is not covered under health insurance, while others don't want to wait months for specialized surgery.  Many come because of the personal care and find this an exceptional experience.  Many patients cite rapport with Indian doctors as a reason for coming here.  We answer emails, give out our mobile phone number and even respond while on vacation.  You will be delighted with the way you are received here, the way we understand your problem, the way we are very sensitive to patient needs.   We assure that we will provide the best medical and travel facilities during your stay in India.

Do you like what you see on our web site? Do you want to consult with Dr. Sachin Shah BUT you live out of the area and think it's not possible? IT IS VERY EASY to get started...an e-mail will get the ball rolling. We have a large number of patient's flying in from all over the country and the world to have their procedure performed by him. Vadodara is easily connected and a thirty minute flight away from Mumbai (Bombay) International Airport.

STEP ONE E-mail us with your concerns along with some digital photos of the areas in question. The Doctor will review your e-mail and photos and discuss your options with you either via e-mail or phone. At this time, we will also be able to give you a price for your procedure.

STEP TWO If after speaking with Dr. Sachin Shah you decide that you would like to proceed, a few e-mails will take care of the rest of the information that we will need. E-mail your personal information along with the dates that will work for you. Once the surgery date and pre-op date (usually a day or two before surgery) have been confirmed by both parties, payment options will be discussed (payment is due 4 weeks prior to the procedure to reserve the time at the surgery center). Payment can be in the form of certified demand draft or cash.

We can give you information regarding hotel accommodations etc. so that everything is settled before you arrive. When you arrive for your pre-op visit, we will have paper work for you to review and fill out. The Doctor will perform a thorough examination and discuss everything in great detail with you.

STEP THREE We strongly recommend that patients stay in Vadodara for a minimum of 5-7 days after surgery (different procedures require different lengths of time and we can discuss your specific situation when the time comes). Our office staff will work around your schedule to get you into the office for your post-op visits. We ask that you keep in contact with us via e-mail and if you return to Vadodara, please pay our office a visit (we love to see our patients as often as possible).
