- Since many years, the cosmetic surgery department of Sir JJ Group of Hospitals is catering to the needs of the patients by helping them undergo cosmetic surgeries.
- Now, Sir JJ Group of Hospitals will soon start a cosmetic OPD by next week.
- Doctor’s claim it to be the first cosmetic outpatient department (OPD) in Maharashtra.
Speaking to My Medical Mantra, Dr Chandrakant Gharwade, Head of Plastic Surgery Department said, “People across Maharashtra visit JJ Hospital for treatment. Plastic surgery is defined as a surgical specialty dedicated to reconstruction of facial and body defects due to birth disorders, trauma, burns, and disease. In private hospitals, lakhs are spent on the same. So, to help more and more patients to undergo cosmetic surgery, a cosmetic OPD will be soon started at Sir JJ Group of Hospitals.”
He added, “Accident victims after the treatment can undergo cosmetic surgery. After deliveries too, the women undergo cosmetic surgeries. The OPD will be started to change the perception of people regarding the cosmetic surgeries. Also, the pateint’s will be counselled for the same.”
Dr Nitin Mokal, a senior plastic surgeon at the state-run Gokuldas Tejpal (GT) Hospital said, “Cosmetic surgery procedures includes rhinoplasty, chin, or cheek enhancement and so on. These are done though a laser. But, these surgeries are costly and unaffordable for many people. Along with GT, in JJ hospital too cosmetic surgeries are done. But, there is not much awareness regarding it. so, in order to make it affordable, OPD will be soon started in Sir JJ Group of Hospitals. For which, the patients will be evaluated and counselled.”
