Dr Anoop has been practicing plastic surgery for the past 16 years and his extreme wealth of knowledge particularly in the use of polyurethane implants made for an empowering afternoon for the PIAC surgeons and staff. The key focus of the seminar was the use of the polyurethane implant and its benefits in breast augmentation surgery. Polyurethane implants are a polyurethane foam coating on the implant shell, which reduces the incidences of capsular contracture, by causing an inflammatory reaction that impeded the formation of a capsule of fibrous collagen tissue around the breast implant. (the collagen tissue wraps itself around individually packed pockets of the implants causing the implant to hold in its originally placed position). Dr Anoop had conducted a study where he performed 600 breast surgeries using the polyurethane implants and the percentage of surgeries that resulted in capsular contracture was below 1%.
Dr Anoop shared his experiences with the polyurethane implants and included some of his techniques used to perform the ‘perfect’ breast augmentation. PIAC took away a great deal of information from this seminar and look forward to growing our practice to new heights.
PIAC and Phuket International Hospital thank Dr Anoop for his time and a thoroughly enjoyed afternoon by all.

As the Christmas holiday approaches, the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons has seen a spike in cosmetic surgery procedures, according to a story in the Herald Sun.
Since the holiday season is often an artificial deadline for some people, says Peter Callahan, the president of the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons, people are increasingly checking cosmetic surgeries off their to-do lists.
The most popular treatments this time of year for Aussies are breast augmentation, various fillers, like Restylane, available in the US, and anti-wrinkle treatments.
According to cosmetic surgeon Anoop Rastogi, the boom in procedures lasts from September to February, during which time Rastogi says he performs twice the amount of breast augmentations for the rest of the year combined.
Another in-demand procedure is rhinoplasty, often selected by students preparing to attend university.
Despite the popularity of many cosmetic procedures around the holidays, Rastogi warns against giving the gift of a new face or body. Rastogi says the patient should be electing to go under the knife because they want to, not because a loved one encouraged them to.
As with cosmetic surgeries performed year-round, Rastogi stresses the importance of finding a qualified surgeon and having realistic expectations about the outcome.
