Dr. Hardik Ganatra

M.B.B.S., M.S., MCh.(Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery)

I am an aesthetic plastic surgeon with an experience of 8 years in the field of plastic surgery. I specialize in Body contouring surgeries (High definition liposuctions for abdomen, arms, back and tummy tucks, waistline sculpting, fat transfer to breasts and buttocks, mommy makeovers, male and female buttock sculpting,..)

I also perform bodylift surgeries as well as facial, breast and genital aesthetic surgeries.

My passion for bodies transcends my work. I use my body as a medium to hone my passion for body sculpting. I am a natural bodybuilder with an experience of 20 years in fitness training and train friends, families and even my patients.

I also use clay and sketches to make face and body models which helps give me more aesthetic perspective.

I envision an aesthetic, fitter and healthier world and propose to work hard for the same.
