Surgery as Art

Let us consider the creation of an artwork, a sculpture carved from stone, welded from steel or cast from a constructed mould. It begins with an 'artistic inspiration' - the stimulus or idea from which the sculpture is born.

It progresses to a creative vision. The artist visualises in his mind's eye the sculpture he will create, how the curves will flow, how the proportions will balance, how the features will be emphasised.

Thereafter, the accumulation of knowledge and technical skill fostered in the artist during his classical training (developed and mastered over time) is called upon to carve, forge and construct the 'vision' until, ultimately, the magic in the sculptor's hands transform the raw materials into a work of art.

This is the view I take of the body and the transformation possible under the direction and vision of a skilled surgeon. As the son of an artist and a doctor, I inherited my creative passion from my mother and a love of medicine from my father. So the fusion of art and surgery was my natural inclination from an early age.

If you are considering cosmetic surgery, what you will experience here at my practice is something very unique.

  • Each patient is treated with the utmost care. I foster a warm, nurturing environment with the highest priority given to patient safety.
  • I use the safest breast implants on the market, Polytech polyurethane-coated implants, which have the least risk of patient complications.
  • I have pioneered the Ultra Short Recovery Technique in my surgeries, allowing minimal discomfort and shorter recovery times.
  • I work with a wonderful team of professionals, who, under my guidance, foster great and long-lasting bonds with my patients, which ensures the success of this practice. Patient communication is the key to these relationships, so expect at least a two-hour comprehensive surgical consultation when you visit here.

My areas of cosmetic surgery expertise include Breast Augmentation, Liposuction, Mini Abdominoplasty (mini Tummy Tuck), Facelift, Blepharoplasty (eyelids) and Cosmetic Medicine/Injectables. For a confidential consultation about the possibilities of cosmetic surgery for you, please contact my rooms on (02) 9362 1426 or email us.

Liposculpture / Liposuction

Perhaps Dr Rastogi's most defining speciality is body sculpting - in the form of creating balanced and harmonious Liposculptures.

The sculpture is a living artwork, so the desired outcome is flowing lines and curves that emphasise the beauty of the silhouette. Read More
Tummy Tuck

Mini Abdominoplasty

If you're finding yourself with a pouch that won't budge, ie after pregnancy, a Mini Abdominoplasty (aka Mini 'Tummy Tuck') can help restore the flat stomach you had before or aspired to achieve even before having a baby. When a patient's concerns are concentrated below the belly button, that's where a Mini Tummy Tuck can help. Read More
Facelift

Facelift and Eyelid Surgery

For the delicate facial area one really needs to feel confident in the skill and precision of the cosmetic surgeon.

What to Expect as a Patient

When you first consult with Dr Rastogi, you will quickly come to understand why he has such a long-standing, loyal patient base and reputable professional standing. What sets him apart from others is his warm, personable nature and the time he spends talking to and caring for his patients. He truly has people's best interests at heart, in that he likes to spend around an hour with patients, sometimes longer, assessing their rationale for wanting surgery and the outcome they are striving for.

Dr Rastogi's post-operative care is also comprehensive. Patients see the doctor and his nursing staff in his follow-up clinic a few days following surgery, then again at 12 weeks. Detailed notes and photos are taken in these appointments. Patients generally proclaim how little pain they felt and how well they have recovered following their procedure, a testament to Dr Rastogi's Ultra-Short Recovery Technique and meticulous operating method.
