Dr. Prajwal Rao: Artistic and Compassionate Plastic Surgeon

When patients approach me, it is natural for them to have numerous inquiries regarding the risks, costs, procedures, and recovery time involved. These questions allow them to become acquainted with me as a professional. However, I intend to foster a strong doctor-patient relationship with every one of you. Therefore, through this blog, I aim to share more about myself – not only as a doctor but also as a fellow human being.

Embracing Tranquility and Family: A Morning Ritual that Inspires

Every morning, as the sun casts its golden rays upon the city, I begin my day with a tranquil ritual that sets the tone for the hours ahead. The first moments are dedicated to meditation, allowing me to center my thoughts and embrace a sense of calm. This practice not only rejuvenates my mind but also instills a positive mindset that carries me through the challenges and triumphs of the day.

Afterward, I cherish a hearty breakfast in the company of my loving family. We gather around the table, savoring each bite while exchanging stories and laughter. This cherished time together fuels me with immense happiness and a renewed sense of purpose. To further uplift my spirits, the melodious notes of music fill the air, creating an ambiance of inspiration and joy.

Many of you love to share your stories with me when you come for consulting, so today I thought of sharing my story of becoming a plastic surgeon with you. I hope you’ll like it.

How did my professional journey begin

My journey into the world of plastic surgery commenced in 2006, when I joined the esteemed Kshema Medical College in Mangalore and pursued an MBBS there. Following that, my unwavering passion for surgical excellence led me to Father Muller Medical College, where I completed my MS in Surgery in 2013. It was during this time that I realized my profound fascination with the transformative potential of cosmetic surgery.

Fueling my ambition further, I undertook an MCh in Plastic Surgery at AJ Medical College in 2019. This intensive training equipped me with the knowledge and skills necessary to navigate the complexities of this specialized field. Soon after, I embarked on an enriching journey as an assistant professor at KMC Manipal. However, the allure of creating profound transformations through personalized care prompted me to establish my private practice, ‘DR PRAJWAL’S LASER & COSMETIC SURGERY CENTRE.’

My primary focus lies in the realm of cosmetic surgery, with a specialization in liposuction and body contouring, breast surgery, rhinoplasty, genital surgery, and hair transplantation. By embracing cutting-edge techniques and technologies like Vaser, Bodytite, Laser, and Piezotome, I strive to achieve exceptional results while ensuring my patients’ utmost safety and comfort.

A cohesive team consisting of a dermatologist, a cosmetic gynecologist, an anesthetist and a dedicated paramedical staff form the backbone of our center, working in harmony to deliver optimal outcomes and patient care.

The Operating Room

As the clock strikes nine, the doors to the operating room swing open, ushering in a symphony of meticulous surgical expertise and compassionate care. Guided by my unwavering dedication to my craft, I embark on a typical day, brimming with life-changing procedures and transformative moments.

Each surgery is approached with a sense of artistry and attention to detail. With the support of advanced technologies, I delicately sculpt and refine, revealing the beauty that lies within each individual. From the precise contours of liposuction and body contouring to the delicate intricacies of rhinoplasty and breast surgery, I channel my expertise and passion into every incision and suture. Throughout the process, I strive not only to enhance physical appearances but also to empower my patients, boosting their self-confidence and unlocking newfound happiness.

Reviews from patients like you motivate me to do my best every single day, and I try to learn advanced techniques that can help my patients recover faster.

Compassionate Care and Community Engagement

Beyond the operating room, my commitment to patient care extends into the realm of empathy, compassion, and unwavering dedication. Each patient that walks through the doors of my clinic holds a unique story, hopes, and dreams, and it is my privilege to listen to and understand their desires.

During consultations, I take the time to forge meaningful connections with my patients. I believe that a trusting and open relationship is the foundation for successful outcomes. I listen intently to their concerns, aspirations, and fears, ensuring that they feel heard and valued. It is through these personal connections that I can tailor my surgical approach to suit their individual needs, working hand in hand to achieve their desired results.

Additionally, I believe in giving back to the community that has entrusted me with their care. I actively engage in philanthropic endeavors and volunteer work, extending my skills and expertise to those who may not have the means to access comprehensive medical care. By participating in charitable initiatives, I strive to make a positive impact on the lives of individuals and contribute to the betterment of society as a whole.

Although I have very little time, I make it a point to make educational videos for my patients. My strong belief behind making such videos is to educate them regarding medical procedures and the latest advancements.

Balancing Work and Personal Life

Finding a harmonious balance between my demanding professional life and personal commitments has been an evolving journey. Initially, it presented its own set of challenges, as the pursuit of excellence in my profession demanded a significant portion of my time and energy. However, over the years, I have come to realize that a well-nurtured personal life is the cornerstone of a fulfilling professional life.

To prevent burnout and promote overall well-being, I have learned to prioritize self-care. Taking time for myself allows me to recharge and maintain a sense of equilibrium. Whether it’s indulging in a leisurely walk amidst nature, immersing myself in a captivating book, or pursuing artistic endeavors, I recognize the importance of nurturing my passions and interests.

Moreover, I have found that a harmonious environment at home contributes significantly to reducing surgical stress. My family’s unwavering support and understanding create an oasis of calm, enabling me to approach each surgical procedure with a clear mind and a compassionate heart.

To conclude, being a plastic surgeon is more than a profession—it is a calling that combines technical expertise, artistic sensibility, and profound compassion. Driven by a desire to empower individuals and enhance their quality of life, I embrace each day as an opportunity to make a lasting impact. From the tranquil moments of my morning routine to the transformative surgeries in the operating room, I am privileged to embark on a fulfilling journey that intertwines artistry, science, and the human spirit.
