Visited For Liposuction
I recommend the doctor
Happy with: Doctor friendlinessTreatment satisfaction
I am Anju Sachdeva, a 62 year old lady.
I noticed a hump-like growth at the back of my neck, and went to show the plastic surgeon Dr. Rajar Gupta at GNH Excel Medical Centre, Shalimar Bagh.
He recommended liposuction for the same, since it would cause further discomfort and neck movement problems with time.
He also noticed that my stomach had an odd shape, and there was fat accumulation in the upper part. I told him the reason was an earlier liposuction done many years ago, where the fat had been removed from the lower abdomen, but this left the upper abdomen protruding.
He recommended that I also get this corrected, but I was sceptical for two reasons:
Firstly at my age I felt one should accept one’s body structure as it is.
Secondly the previous experience was quite distressful.
However he assured me the 2 procedures would not take too long, and he has the latest technology which makes the experience quite comfortable.
And this is what I found - the entire experience was very smooth. I reached GNH Excel Medical Centre on the morning of the procedure. I had been given instructions for the night before.
Firstly the hygiene and set-up of the Medical Centre was truly commendable.
The staff was well- trained, efficient, and knew their tasks clearly. They helped make me relaxed and prepared for the surgery.
The procedure was done under General Anaesthesia with Dr. Sumit Setia, and this too was quite seamless. I slipped in and out of Anaesthesia without noticing, and there was no pain of the procedure post – surgery due to drip and pain-killers.
The pressure gown I have been recommended is also of very good quality, and my recovery has been consistent and good. I did not have much problem, or pain, though of course a procedure is ultimately a procedure. However, I have been much more comfortable than I had expected to be.
From the next day itself, as advised by Dr. Rajat, I have been going for leisurely walks, steadily increasing my time and pace.
I joined work 2 days after the procedure, and faced no issues or fatigue or weakness.
When I see myself in the mirror, I am definitely glad I was advised to have both procedures done, and that I followed the advice.
It is not about age, what makes you very uncomfortable, or conscious about how you look, should be corrected if it can be. It boosts your self image.
I would definitely recommend Dr. Rajat Gupta as a Plastic Surgeon. He is very competent, sympathetic, and very caring and patient with queries.
His Head Nurse Kamlesh too is very helpful and competent.
