India is definitely a place to be when it comes not only to the future, but even already to the present of aesthetic surgery and cosmetic dermatology. Our fields are growing so fast across the entire country.
Due to a growing economy, the whole Indian population is currently opening itself to the idea of plastic surgery. Nevertheless, the culture is very different, and the call for plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures is not there driven by the same motivations it can be in Europe or America. India doesn’t look at aging, neither at older people the same way occident does and there’s a lot less pressure from the society about one’s age.
In 2011, India has shown a yearly growth rate of 6,1% making it the second largest growth after China. Moreover, India hosts the second largest population of the world, and the third fastest aging one.
But before (and beyond) figures, India symbolizes a different way to look at our medical aesthe- tic field.
‘‘Indian people are aging gracefully, and have by far higher respect for elder people.’’
Silvia Scherer, Managing Director Aesthetics, Anteis, Switzerland
Indian patients are not necessarily searching for a younger look but for a remodeling of the face, a way to feel better about themselves while completely assuming their age.

India thus teaches us that plastic surgery, as any medical specialty, can be the object of multiple approaches, and can be declined in many ways, with different goals and objectives according to the area of the world it’s been practiced in order to embrace local richness. One must adapt to each patient physiological, psychological but also cultural specificities.
So join us once again at IMCAS India, not only to learn the latest tips and techniques, but also to change the way you look at your own specialty. Open your mind, and welcome in India!
