In an era of “over the counter” cosmetic surgery, quality plastic surgery stands out more than ever because of the excellence of its results.


Cosmetic surgery is the man’s application of medical knowledge and science, to change the way we look and feel about ourselves.

Respect the individuality of each face and body

Quality plastic surgery respects the individuality of each face and body and is dedicated to achieving a natural looking result, which is undetectable as the result of surgery. This quality of surgery can only be achieved by the surgeon, who also requires a true understanding of aesthetics and a rigorous commitment to excellence, discipline and detail. Only the very best plastic surgery, by providing a natural and lasting result, can ensure this life enhancing quality.

Achieving balance & harmony

The goal is to achieve balance and harmony. The basis of beauty is in the balance of the feature, each with the others and in harmony of the whole person. Sometime a subtle change can make a significant difference overall. Cosmetic surgery involves an artistic sense combined with the ability to understand the desire of the individual. Translating these desires into the finished surgical result often produces much more than a changed appearance – it can change a life. I feel very good about that.

What is Cosmetic Surgery?

Cosmetic surgery is the man’s application of medical knowledge and science, to change the way we look and feel about ourselves, safely and predictably and combines the concepts of medicine, art and the human mind and desires to achieve the desired results. I am constantly fascinated by the human reaction to the final result.



Patient Support

From the start, patients are encouraged to make as many pre-surgical consultations as they feel they want, with Dr. Viral Desai, to discuss their needs and any fears or uncertainties they may feel. Once the decision to have surgery is made, patients then work closely with Dr. Viral Desai to create a surgical plan about which they feel relaxed and confident.

Accurate Information

Quality information helps patients to make informed surgical decisions with confidence. It is also essential that patients understand any potential risks or complications, which may arise because, even though these may be rare, they are a part of the informed patients decision-making process. CPLSS has a comprehensive information service for patients, which covers all aspects of plastic surgery, including information booklets written by Dr. Viral Desai, which discuss individual procedures in detail.

Emotional well-being

Patients need emotional support both before and after surgery, and the recovery phase is particularly important in this regard. If the emotional well being of each patient is carefully attended to during this time, recovery can be a fulfilling and rewarding time, building to a confidence return to normal life. As part of the support service, all patients are provided day by day guidance on what to expect during recovery, including practical advice on handling the highs and lows commonly experienced during this time.


Knowing that their decisions will be kept confidential is essential to patient’s trust and feeling of emotional safety. At CPLSS, confidentiality receives the highest priority, with procedures in place to ensure the absolute privacy and confidentiality for every patient.
