On the whole, I have had a very positive experience Shweta and Dr Wagh have been professional and effective and I can’t praise the Hinduja Healthcare surgical hospital enough. If only they were this amazing in NHS.

Coming to India alone, I found the experience of surgery ( MACS facelift, upper and lower eyelid surgery, armlift) slightly traumatic. But it was expected and does not reflect on the care I was given. It’s only a week post op, so I cannot comment on the final results. I hope they would be good and I shall surely recommend the surgery to be organized by IndiCure, as quality of care is obviously their speciality.
