Cosmetic surgery is a special branch of medicine that focuses on altering a person’s physical appearance for aesthetic and sometimes medical purposes. Specialised techniques from surgery and medicine are used to accomplish this. All parts of the body including the head and neck can undergo cosmetic surgery. It could entail reshaping the body’s contour and form, breast enhancement, reducing wrinkles, or removing bald spots. One can pick from a variety of cosmetic surgery operations to create an image that increases self-assurance and comfort with their physical appearance.

Reconstructive Surgery

Reconstructive surgery is a treatment that restores your body after an illness, trauma, disease, tumour, infection, or developmental abnormality. It improves your comfort and confidence while returning body parts to their original appearance and function. In reconstructive surgery, tissue from one part of your body is frequently used to fix another. The primary goal is to normalise the body’s function or that of a particular bodily component. Mr. Sandip Hindocha makes every effort to lessen both the impact of the surgery itself and the visible impact of the initial deformity. Reconstructive surgery is performed on patients of all ages, from newborns to the very elderly, and it is performed on all parts of the body.


Repair and reconstruction of lost or damaged skin and tissue are accomplished through skin plastic surgery. Skin surgery’s primary goal is to as closely mimic the natural function and appearance of tissue and skin as much as possible. Sometimes this may mean removing scars or reconstructing defects after skin cancer removal, and at other times it may be removing tattoos.


Reconstructive hand surgery tries to give the hand and fingers their natural range of motion. The hand is rebalanced largely for normal operational use. The treatment of patients with hand injuries, degenerative diseases, and congenital deformities has dramatically advanced in recent years. Reconstructive hand surgery is performed to repair damage to the hand’s bones, blood vessels, nerves, and tendons. A damaged joint is replaced with an artificial joint composed of silicone rubber, metal, plastic, or even your own bodily tissue, like a tendon. In other cases, hand operations are carried out to treat damage to the hands due to skin injuries such as burns, cuts, and other wounds.


Non-surgical cosmetic procedures are cosmetic treatments that do not involve surgery and can be performed without incisions, general anaesthesia or a hospital stay. They are minimally invasive and are designed to enhance a person’s appearance and improve certain physical features without the need for surgery. These procedures could include botox injections, dermal fillers, lasers, chemical peels, and PRP. These are often done in a clinic setting.
