If your appearance is getting you down, whether it’s that one feature you hate or a stubborn post-baby belly, Bahrain Specialist Hospital’s Consultant Plastic Surgeon, Dr Salil Bharadwaj, is here to help.
With more than 20 years of experience, Dr Salil is a board-certified consultant plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgeon. He also boasts affiliations to several professional associations ensuring his methods are always of the highest standard employing the latest techniques and technological developments.
Plastic surgery generally is categorized into two sectors: reconstructive and cosmetic. The former corrects congenital anomalies, or acquired deformities due to cancer, burns and injury. The latter is performed to reshape or restore normal structures of the body to improve appearance and self-esteem.
The majority of Dr Salil’s work involves aesthetic enhancements such as liposuction, tummy tucks, breast reduction or augmentation, rhinoplasty and face and body lifts. “Another common procedure is ‘fat transfer’, where fat harvested from liposuction is injected into other parts as a natural volumiser – for the face, breasts or even the buttocks,” he says.
He also works with men who find themselves developing enlarged breasts. “Gynaecomastia, or enlarged breasts in men, is an inherited condition, or can be triggered by hormonal or environmental factors,” says the doctor. “Liposuction with excision of the gland can correct this and leaves no noticeable scar in the area.”
Firmly of the belief that everybody should have the opportunity to live confidently, without their looks affecting their self-esteem and social interactions, Dr Salil says: “Aesthetic procedures promote a positive body image. For instance, often after childbirth, the abdominal muscles permanently separate and conventional exercise cannot rectify this. A tummy tuck [abdominoplasty], combined with liposuction, can realign the muscles, remove unwanted fat and tighten loose skin to correct the changes.”
Botox and fillers along with various non-invasive, state-of-the-art resurfacing and contouring treatments for the face and body are offered at BSH. The doctor adds: “We carry out only scientifically proven techniques, as opposed to those with no established efficacy. It is my duty to be honest with patients to enable them to set realistic expectations, as safety and integrity are important aspects in my line of medicine.”
