Dr. Milind Wagh started private practice after his return from Melbourne. His main field of interest in that period was Reconstructive Hand and Microsurgery and he has an extensive experience of more than 20 years across the entire spectrum of this field.
Dr. Wagh started doing Cosmetic Surgery in 2000 while still doing a considerable amount of Reconstructive work.

My Practice Philosophy :
Thank you for visiting me online. I would like to encourage you to become better informed on the latest plastic and aesthetic surgical options available to you. I sincerely believe that this is a new era in Plastic Surgery, a very exciting time for all of us. Never before have Plastic surgeons been able to give their patients such satisfying results with so much safety and so quickly.
I invite you to experience my personal commitment to your care. I’m here to help you choose, to discuss your options honestly, to explain the risks vis-à-vis the benefits and to guide you to look and feel your best.
I would humbly request you to have realistic goals. There is a whole lot that is possible but a few things which are impossible and utopian. Beauty comes from within as well as from without. I can help you with the external part but the internal part, your personality, your conscience, your soul is all YOURS to change for the better.
Your satisfaction, enhanced self-confidence and improved body-image is my highest reward.
