Daddy Makeover for the Cool Dads

Traditionally thought to be a woman’s thing, men too have now emerged as new clients. The most frequent visitors of cosmetic surgeon’s office are middle aged and 50-somethings because they wish to hold on to youth for a little longer and believe that age is just a number. Men neglect their health and physical appearance usually due to job & family responsibilities while women spend most years of their lives & resources to keep their family needs fulfilled. As soon as people begin to feel satisfied with their status, family and achieve certain standards in society, they also begin to see the impact of life on their bodies. This is the age when they know what they want, and is it often the desire to regain their attractive, youthful face & slim-fit body. It makes sense for your beauty concerns to change over time, especially when your body changes in ways you may not have been ready for. Now might be the time to clean up your "problem areas" and focus just on you with the help of cosmetic surgery procedures that are designed to improve the way you look and feel about yourself. In order to maintain a youthful appearance, there are a handful of procedures that men and women regularly turn to.

What is a Daddy Makeover?

As the male body ages, certain areas can become more susceptible to fat accumulation. Areas such as the abdomen, flanks (love handles), under-chin and chest may begin to harbor fat and make you look older. Moreover, weight gain and fluctuations can cause the skin to become stretched, particularly in the middle years when the skin starts to lose its elasticity. Unfortunately, even if the weight is shed, the skin will not return to a taut state. Much like the skin of a post-pregnancy body, a man’s skin can hang loosely after weight loss, creating an unshapely effect. A Daddy Makeover and healthy lifestyle can help re-establish a more pleasing contour.

Is it right for you?

Dr. R. K. Mishra specializes in the transformative Daddy Makeover, performing gynecomastia surgery (breast reduction), liposuction, six-pack abs formation and tummy tucks to enhance and rejuvenate the male body. He has helped patients achieve a more sculpted and defined body. He performs a range of surgical techniques, customizing his Daddy Makeover approach to the individual. The main procedures are-

Gynecomastia Correction surgery (male breast reduction) 

This surgery addresses excess fat and glands in the chest, helps to regain a flat chest. The approx cost is between 35,000 to 55,000 rupees depending upon the severity of problem.


Liposuction is a fat removal procedure that can be performed on different areas of the body. Often used to sculpt the abdomen and reduce love handles, it can also be used to address excess chin fat. Recovery time depends greatly on the area being treated and the extent of fat removal. Results can be long-lasting if you maintain a healthy life-style. The cost depends on area, starting from approx 60,000 rupees. Liposuction is considered a huge help in reshaping the figures and improving the contours. It is a surgical procedure that enables body contouring and bringing it back to shape by removing excessive fat from various areas. Liposuction has always been a topic of interest among all the genders and ages due to the large amount of benefits it offers. 

Abs Etching (Six pack Abs formation)

Abs Etching is quite popular these days. Well defined six pack abs has long been a sign of masculinity, but despite rigorous diet and exercise, this ideal eludes many men. Abdominal etching takes liposuction to the next level as it involves an advance level of detailing and distinction to the abdomen that gets you six-pack or washboard stomach. With abs etching, your stomach can appear tighter, firmer and more muscular making you look fit and active. The procedure costs approx INR 85,000 rupees.

A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is a surgery that tightens and re-positions the underlying tissues in the abdominal region, reduces fat and trims excess skin. This option is excellent for those who have lost muscle definition and have loose skin. The approx cost is between 85,000 to 1,10,000 rupees depending upon the condition.

A Blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure aimed to reduce under-eye “bags” and tighten sagging upper eyelid skin to give you much younger and fresher appearance. This costs approx 60,000 rupees.
Almost all of these procedures are performed on day care basis, so you don’t need to stay at the hospital to get the athletic figure. These procedures are so simple that it takes not more than 1-2 hours to perform them and after 5-6 hours of rest, people are allowed to go home on the very same day and return to your routine activities right from the next day.

Myths & Facts about Plastic Surgery on Plastic Surgery Day (15th July 2016)

Myth-1: Plastic Surgery can change your Entire Face.
Fact- Plastic Surgery can never change anyone’s entire face magically and can NEVER make you look like someone else. There are surgeries to improve minor imperfections in facial features like a rhinoplasty can improve the shape of your nose, a chin surgery can elongate your chin (if it is short) or a lip reduction/augmentation can change the size of lips but it cannot make you someone else.

Myth-2: Cosmetic Surgeries are completely painless.
Fact- The surgeries are like any other normal surgery where cuts are made but these are elective, there is somewhat painful (every surgery includes some pain) but that is well managed by medications.

Myth- Only high-profile people have cosmetic surgery.
Fact- Gone are those days when cosmetic surgery was considered exclusively a celebrity thing. With easily accessible information, affordable cost and availability, hoards of middle-class and lower middle-class junta are lining up outside the office of cosmetic surgeon to get the chiseled look.

People with Body Dismorphic Disorder (BDD) don't need Cosmetic Surgery

It is important to know why doctors administer a mental health screening before putting a BDD suspected patient under the knife. It clearly doesn't mean that the patient has lost it or is a psycho, it is just to rule out body dismorphic disorder becasue such people with BDD don’t need cosmetic surgery, they need psychiatric care & counselling. If a surgeon performs the desired surgery on a BDD affected patient without mentla counselling, it is more than sure that he/she will NOT be satisfied with the results and it will affect both (the surgeon and the patient) because it is not a matter of face/body correction, it the the mind that need fixation.
People with BDD may pick at a skin defect only perceptible to them until a real scab appears. They might lose hours in front of a mirror, meticulously working to camouflage their purported flaws, or they might compulsively avoid mirrors at all costs, terrified of what they’ll see. Some develop eating disorders or social anxiety.

Still, the psychiatric condition is surprisingly common: according to the Body Dysmorphia Disorder Foundation, one in 50 people has it. The advocacy group lists several famous names who may have had the disorder, though none were ever diagnosed, including Sylvia Plath, Michael Jackson and Franz Kafka.

Things You Need To Know About Vaginal Cosmetic Surgery

The number of purely cosmetic operations for vaginal rejuvenation, as it's popularly known, has escalated significantly over the past few years. The rise in numbers of women having Genital Cosmetic Surgery is due to a greater awareness of the available procedures. There is a wealth of information about Genital Cosmetic Surgery on the internet and major women's magazines have also featured articles on the topic. The rise in popularity of Bikini waxing also appears to be one reason why Genital Cosmetic Surgery is on the rise. Removing the vast majority of pubic hair means that the genitals are less camouflaged and women are more aware of their appearance. Increased exposure has led women to feel more self-conscious about their genitals and worried about whether they are 'normal'. It is no more a topic of Taboo.

A number of factors can contribute to cosmetic or sexual concerns related to this intimate area of women’s anatomy, including genetics, ageing, pregnancy and childbirth, deformity, and trauma. Unfortunately, when most women approach their family doctor or gynaecologist about their concerns they are often are rebuffed. But Dr. R. K. Mishra is a member of the group of plastic surgeons trained in genital correction surgeries. There is no reason not to seek a consultation to determine if the correct procedure is available for reducing the labia, a large clitoral hood, or correcting asymmetry. Cosmetic surgical procedures have been developed to correct such defects. Vaginoplasty is done for vaginal rejuvenation and tightening and Labiaplasty is done for labia reduction and beautification. Hymenoplasty (reconstruction of the hymen) returns the ruptured hymen to a pre-sexual state. Labiaplasty and Vaginoplasty can be performed at the same time or in combination with other common Plastic and Cosmetic procedures such as Rhinoplasty, Breast Enhancement or Reduction, Abdominoplasty, or Liposculpturing.

All Cosmetic Vaginal Surgeries are performed by Dr. Mishra is sympathetic to a woman’s needs and understands what a delicate subject cosmetic vaginal surgery can be. It is his experience, knowledge, and sensitivity that make him the best person to perform your vaginal cosmetic surgery—from vaginoplasty, (vaginal rejuvenation, and vaginal reconstruction) to labiaplasty (labia reduction and labia beautification) or both together. Dr. Mishra is sensitive to the needs of women from cultures that embrace particular issues of virginity due to cultural, social, or religious reasons. The aim of Hymenoplasty is to restore the hymen, which in some cultures is a considered proof of virginity. Privacy becomes one of the majors concerns in such intimate procedures, and Dr. R. K. Mishra fully ensures his patients’ privacy and never discloses their identities to anyone without their consent.
