The faculty also demonstrated the young plastic surgeons of India the art of their surgical expertise during a live operative workshop on January 24, at S.E Railway Hospital, Garden Reach. The idea was that the patients need not travel abroad for their high-end surgeries and get the facilities and expertise right here in India and by trained Indian doctors.

It is to notice that India is one of the largest countries in the world of patients requiring aesthetic surgery. But there is a shortage of trained doctors to cater to the ever-increasing demand.
