Introduction

Dr Parag Mahadik is a highly regarded medical practitioner in Sydney with his 18 yrs of a vast and diverse surgical experience. Out of his 14 long years of Plastic Surgical experience, 10 years have been spent in Australia in the same specialty of Plastic Reconstructive and Cosmetic Surgery.

He moved to Sydney in 2008 as a specialist Plastic Surgeon and a Micro surgeon from India.

He is affiliated to the Plastic Surgery department at Westmead Hospital, which services the entire Western Area Health District of NSW.

His dual specialist qualifications ( General Surgery and Plastic Surgery ) from India, bring in the wealth of surgical volume in terms of numbers, while his Australian experience decorates it with high quality finesse. The end result is nothing less than perfection.

Experience

Last 10 yrs of his surgical practice in Australia, predominantly focuses on Plastic Surgery, Facial surgery and Cosmetic Surgery. He has performed thousands of operations of the face, body, breast and hands He has had extensive experience in reconstructions of the Breast, Head and Neck, Lower extremity and in Facial trauma . He has bought to life hundreds of faces, deformed from cancer, disease or accidents. As a trusted & reputed microsurgeon, he automatically has that attention to detail, finesse in work and the necessary patience. We believe, these attributes finally reflect in our patient outcomes which is far more important to us than just a sweet talk.

For up skilling his Cosmetic Surgery experience he has worked alongside with many renowned Cosmetic Plastic surgeons in Australia over the time. His microsurgery skills helped him immensely into this gradual transformation into an aesthetic surgeon. His cosmetic surgery work in most areas of Breast, Body, Face and the Genitalia , hence has become very refined and accepts nothing less than perfection. As commonly believed , “Enhancing beauty, out of normal form is easy for someone who recreates form and beauty which is not existent”

Another important thing that sets him apart from others is the art of listening than lecturing . That stems from his experience working with people from different cultures and knowing that different people may have very different concerns . At Esmee, we believe that ,understanding patients means understanding everything around them to be able to customise a treatment plan tailored to their needs. Dr Mahadik also believes that ‘ patients are more happier if you incorporate their own ‘taste’ into the aesthesis’ .

This eye for detail , the finesse and the wealth of experience makes him an ‘artist’ when it comes to sculpting beautiful faces and bodies.
