He has extensive experience in both the reconstructive and aesthetic aspects of plastic surgery, has treated patients from miscellaneous nationalities and is therefore acquainted with a many cultural conceptions of beauty. He got his preliminary medical education at JIPMER, a premier institution for medical education which trains the best medical minds of India. After graduating in 1982, he continued his education in Surgery (M.S) at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), broadly considered one of India’s best teaching hospitals. After completing studies in general surgery in 1987 he then pursued further specialization in plastic surgery from two of the principal medical institutes in India. He primarily trained at AIIMS where he participated in head and neck cancer reconstruction, microsurgery and general reconstructive surgery. He was then chosen to undergo an intensive two year full-time residency in plastic surgery at PGIMER, and received a MCh degree in 1992 which is the highest qualification in plastic surgery afforded by India and has a board certification in plastic surgery. He then got further experience in aesthetic surgery.

❖ Dr. Mohan became a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons of Glasgow (FRCS) in 1998. He is a member of several national and international professional bodies and has served as invited guest faculty at many international conferences. He has more than 40 publications and presentations in national and international meetings/journals. He is one of the pioneers of Lipoabdominoplasty in the South Asia/Middle East region, having done over 200 cases. Lipoabdominoplasty is a unique operation in which liposuction and a ‘tummy-tuck’ are combined, with consideration to reserve the nerve and blood supply to the operated areas. It is preferably suited for patients who have a thick layer of fat in their abdominal wall. Typically, his patients are able to leave the hospital after an overnight stay, do not need drains, and are able to go back to light duties in a week. His other interest areas in the field of aesthetic are: Rhinoplasty, particularly cases in which primary surgery by others was unsatisfactory, Body contour surgery including body lifts, breast surgeries and fat grafting. He is relaxed with both closed and open methods of Rhinoplasty and has been invited to talk on this topic at number of plastic surgery meetings. In the interest of breast aesthetic surgery, he has huge experience with short scar breast reductions and with ‘body-logic’ driven natural breast augmentations. He has also been involved in fat grafting field since 2002 becoming one of the first surgeons in this region to adopt the new ideas of micro-fat grafting with PRP (platelet rich plasma), a method which crops the body’s own fat cells, stem cells and growth factors to rejuvenate the deflated tissues.

❖ Dr. Mohan uses fat grafts in a many areas; for example, he combines short scar face-lifts with such fat-PRP technology to give greater results. He is using fat graft for natural breast enhancement without implants (selected cases only) using the BRAVA device. Fat grafts are also utilized along with other methods in genital rejuvenation; either alone or as part of a comprehensive ‘mommy makeover‘ process. For his male patients, he gives nearly scar-less correction of gynecomastia by operating only through the nipple -areola, male rejuvenation surgeries, mini-face lifts, liposculpture and some other processes. He is skilled in laser technology and gives laser therapies (both fractional and non-fractional) for acne marks, uneven pigmentation, wrinkles, age spots etc. on the face using the advanced Fotona Erbium Laser. He is also very qualified in Radiosurgery using Radiofrequency device for numerous skin conditions. He uses this for gentle rejuvenation, blepharoplasty and face lifts; resulting in faster healing and less bleeding/bruising. As a plastic surgeon Dr. Mohan is proficient in all areas of reconstructive surgery including microsurgery, hand surgery and maxillofacial surgery. His department deals with all kinds of reconstructive problems such as birth defects, tissue loss, burns, non-healing wounds and a diversity of issues with form and function. He runs an active hand surgery service in which severely damaged hands are repaired and restored.

❖ Dr. Mohan has a strong eye for details and what people describe as skilled hands. He searches for ways to continuously enhance his results and remove the obstacles while taking in consideration patient safety at the same time. His experience in reconstructive surgery, wound healing, endoscopic surgery and widespread background knowledge of other surgical disciplines makes him a much sought-after surgeon to solve hard surgical problems. Beside the plastic and reconstructive work, Dr. Mohan was also part of the Kidney Transplant team of AIIMS, India. He was appreciated and invited to be a part of the Kidney Transplant team in Sultanate of Oman between 1994 and 2001.
