AS A COSMETOLOGIST/ COSMETIC SURGEON, WHAT ARE THOSE BIGGEST MYTHS ABOUT BEAUTY THAT YOU WANT TO CLARIFY?
I think most often people don’t realize that it takes lot of efforts and care to maintain your beauty and when they do, they get scared and easily give up. I have found that the only way to successfully take care of yourself is to break down the various activities into small and easy routines through the day. Once you have that routine you have successful beauty regime and that just happens naturally. For example, face masks are an easy way to keep your skin rejuvenated. So, when I put on a face mask while I’m doing other activities, whether I’m navigating through traffic or chilling with Netflix.
I also think that non-invasive surgeries like dermal filler and thread lift should be viewed almost like makeup. We are all anyway putting masks every day. Also, when you shaped or did your eyebrow, you are changing a bit of who you are. So, I don’t think there is anything wrong with these treatments and people should get filler, thread left etc. whenever they want it.
HOW MUCH DO YOU ENJOY HELPING PEOPLE LOOK AND FEEL THEIR BEST?
This is what matters the most as I have been passionate about helping people since my medical school days, and I have worked on this. Its what helps me get up every day and do my best. I am always so happy to see when my patients are happy with the results of my treatment.
WAS THERE ANY TIME WHEN YOU HAD TO GO ABOVE AND BEYOND TO GET A JOB DONE?
I feel like I go above and beyond for every patient of mine I often treat. For me every patient is special and We have a process in which we give personalized service to all our patients irrespective of who they are. We even offer them home service where applicable. Lastly, the recent pandemic has given a unique opportunity for me to connect with my patients at a deeper level, whereas a medical practitioner I advise on the right precautions to take during this difficult times.
WHAT IS THE MOST ENTICING PART OF YOUR JOB?
I love meeting new people and seeing how I can transform their lives with my work. It is always nice to also see the immediate results of my work. Eventually, nothing makes me happier than seeing all my patients (celebrity or not) be satisfied with my treatment.
HOW IMPORTANT IS PERSONAL BRANDING FOR YOU, AND WHAT YOU DO TO GROW YOUR PERSONAL BRAND?
In today’s world where people want to intimately know what they are buying, personal branding is more important than ever. My big mantra for personal branding is to be honest. I ensure that my patients and fans see the real and authentic me. I have noticed that little things like Insta live, stories about my daily lives etc. help me tremendously with my personal branding. Lastly, another key aspect of my personal branding is to treat and collaborate with celebrity patients from Bollywood and Indonesia. Over the years, many of them have trusted me and given me glowing reviews, which has helped grow my personal brand.
