Who said that one has to live with the looks that one was born with? Proving the theory that nothing is permanent and being transient about looks is possible is what medical cosmetologists thrive on! Just like celebrities, populations in urban and semi-urban setup in India are becoming increasingly cautious about the way they look. It is not only the Indian market that is going gaga over medical cosmetology surgeries, but the international markets too are also trying to make the most of the low cosmetic surgery costs in India. Such a trend is rhetoric of the increasing prominence of medical tourism and is as a result attracting a lot of young students to this profession.
Why Indian medical cosmetology market is growing?
A botox treatment that costs $700-900 in the US, costs approximately $150-200 in India. The same story continues for other cosmetic treatments like facelifts, liposuction and lots more. Relatively cheaper consultation and surgical costs combined with updated medical technology makes India amongst favored countries for cosmetic treatment.
Students who wish to make a career for themselves in this medical field have to first complete MBBS from a reputed college. After completing MBBS, aspirants can then pursue a postgraduate degree in dermatology or a diploma in dermatology or medical cosmetology. With an experience of a couple of years under an expert, a medical cosmetologist can easily earn Rs 50,000 – Rs 1,00,000 per month. It is a perfect professional choice for all those doctors who also have their interests in beauty and wellness sectors.
