PLANING YOUR SURGERY
Seven steps to arrange for your Surgery
The first step in seeking Cosmetic Surgery at our centre is obviously seeking our first consultation. If you are anywhere near our centre, you are welcome to call us up 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. IST (Tel +91 8088400400, +91 9448571216 or +91 9008031216) for an appointment.
If you are overseas, or far away from us, we suggest you run through all the steps given underneath and have a convenient appointment fixed up for surgery the day after you arrive at our centre. The steps are as follows:
Write to us and explain in brief your problem. If possible, attach a picture of yours too so that we know what your problem is like. Once you get our response to your initial email query, and if you still happen to have any further query, do write back to us. But this time, send us a reply to your first query. This way we can keep a trace of you, and your letter does not get mixed up with the scores of queries we receive every week. Hopefully, you shall receive your reply as early as possible. If not, please do not hesitate to send us a copy of your letter again.
If you are emailing your picture to us, please ensure that it is not over 2MB in size, and it should preferably be in the *.jpg format. Every area of the body needs to be assessed by a particular set of pictures taken in different views. Check our procedures to see an example of what sort of pictures you need to send us for assessment of your nose or face.
Once we are clear on what your problem is, and you have our opinion on the sort of surgery to be done, ask us for our rates or fee that is likely to be incurred. Please proceed further only if the rates are suitable for you. You must browse over the Costs given on our web-site to gather what sort of expenditures are likely. Please be informed about the mode of payment as well.
You now need to undergo some basic tests before the surgery. To save time, you could get them done at your own place too, and even convey to us by email all your test reports, so that we cross check for you whether they are in order or not. The tests you need to run through are the following Haemogram/ Complete Blood Counts/ ABO Group & Rh Typing/ Blood Urea Nitrogen and Creatinine/ Blood Sugar or Glucose Tolerance Test/ Thyroid profile/ Lipid profile/ Serum for Australia Antigen (HBs Ag EIA)/HIV 1 & 2 Ab EIA/ VDRL/ Urine Analysis Other tests for confirming your fitness for general anesthesia also require Electrocardiogram and Chest X-Ray. Please consult your family Physician or doctor in your area to confirm that the results are in order and that you are in a fit general condition to undergo surgery. While it is always a good idea to get the tests done before travelling here, we can conveniently get them done here in case it is not possible for you at your own place.
