About My Practice
How do you educate the public?
I've been on multiple news programs and the doctors as a guest. It gives me a chance to share with a wide audience. I like being a go-to guy for health and beauty locally and internationally.
Is there a treatment that fades scars from cosmetic surgery procedures?
We use pulse dye laser treatments in conjunction with silicone-based adhesive strips. Silicone in gel or tape used for 6 to 8 weeks post-op dramatically decreases incision scars or wounds.
What is a useful beauty tip for our readers?
Don't underestimate the power of natural remedies. Whether it's a honey-based mask or an exfoliator made with pineapple, there are plenty of things you can do at home.
How do medi-spa services complement your practice?
The same way a sculptor may sand or paint his art to finish it, we use spa and skin-care services to put the finishing touches on our work.
How does your background influence your approach?
My family is from India, and I’m familiar with Ayurvedic medicine, which has helped give me a more holistic perspective.
How does the dynamic between you and dr. Andrew Ordon benefit patients?
We have such a wide range of experience to offer patients. Dr. Ordon has been practicing for decades and has incredible depth of knowledge, and I bring new and cutting-edge techniques to the practice. Patients receive multiple perspectives with two generations of surgeons.

What is a pain pump and when is it used? When and how is it removed?What our experts say:
We use pain pumps for some abdominoplasty. It gives a little bit of local anesthetic to the area placated with a tummy tuck. It numbs your muscles for a couple of hours. The jury is still out on them. A lot of doctors use them and a lot don’t. I use them with breast reconstruction or mastectomies. Any surgery where there is a lot of pain. The problem is that often times if a patient is in a lot of pain it notifies us there could possibly be blood under the flap, a pain pump can mask symptoms.
What are the best nonsurgical ways to rejuvenate the face?What our experts say:
It all depends on what age demographic the patient is in. When they are younger, we’re getting rid of wrinkles with products like Botox and hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm. For restoring more volume we like Radiesse and Sculptra. If the patient needs more volume, we like to use the patient’s own fat and stem cells as fillers. There is a lot more research that needs to be done but we are on the cutting edge of using fat as a facial filler. Everything is done under the guise that we’re picking the right treatment for the right patient. You see some older celebrities who look overfilled because they are trying to get a lift with product alone. When patients are older we have to take that into consideration so minimally invasive options may not give them the results they want.
Is the fat transfer for butt enhancement permanent?What our experts say:
In all applications of fat transfer, some of the fat survives. Some, not all. So skilled surgeons take special care to reduce the amount of loss of volume. Simply "overdoing" it is not an accurate enough concept. To maximize "take" we must extract the fat gently and choose donor areas that are not tenacious, leading to traumatic extraction. The knees and lower abdomen are usually good. Special cannulas that are teflon coated help slide the fat free of the body, so the cells don't rupture upon removal. A straining device or fat concentrating technique insures we are putting densely packed fat back in, not watery sludge. Because the water component will not help in the long run. Gentle placement of the graft in tunnels that are of proper size is the last step. Only surgeons who are really passionate about fat transfer go through all of these tedious steps.
What can I do when the weight just won’t come off despite my best efforts?What our experts say:
Liposuction was invented for those stubborn figure flaws that are resistant to diet and exercise. No doubt, if you change your entire life, have 100% compliance on what you eat, the exercise you do and the supplements you take, anyone can achieve a better body. But virtually no one is willing to change everything. We have to have jobs, commitments to kids and family take up our time. There is no such thing as perfect compliance with healthy habits. So Liposuction is a viable option to bridge that gap between concept and reality.
For how long can I wait to get pregnant after liposuction and breast lift surgery?What our experts say:
Liposuction recovery is quick. You are completely recovered in a couple of months. But one would never get breast lifting is pregnancy is in the plans for the immediate future. It makes more sense to wait and see what the pregnancy effect is on the breasts before considering surgery. After breast feeding ends, 3-6 months should elapse to be sure the blood vessels in the beast have time to shrink before a surgery. It takes that long to be sure all of the breast changes after a baby are complete.
