Professional experience
I am involved in cosmetic surgery, particularly liposuction work since 2004 at
Venkat Charmalaya-centre for advanced dermatology, Bangalore, India.
Venkat Charmalaya is a prominent cosmetic dermatology centre in
Bangalore, India. The centre performs various cosmetic treatments such as
Liposuction, fat transfer, hair transplantation, threadlifts, breast reduction,
acne scar surgeries, other reconstructive surgeries. It also performs various
noninvasive cosmetic treatments such as Botox, fillers, microdermabrasion,
thermal lift, chemical peels, laser hair removal etc. We have performed over
200 cases of liposuction, since 2004 and over 500 Follicular unit hair
transplants. Male breast reduction is one of our important areas of focus.
I have also practiced as an obstetrician and gynaecologist for 20 years in
India and Gulf countries. I have experience in managing various complicated
cases and emergencies, having worked at different hospitals of different
types .The obstetric practice in the region where I worked provided many
challenges, as grandmulti parity is very common and so are multiple
cesarean sections. In fact, my dissertation for MRCOG was “an outcome of
pregnancy in grandmultipara in Omani women”, and this paper won the best
paper award in an international conference at Oman. I am well experienced
in ultrasound and laparoscopy.
Teaching experience:My teaching experience( over 9 years) includes
teaching both undergraduate students for Arab board in dermatology at
Royal Hospital , Muscat( SQU university), Salmaniya Medical Hospital(
Arabian Gulf University) and JSS medical college, Mysore
