Why Choose Us

Medical tourism is a growing sector in India. India's medical tourism sector is expected to experience an annual growth rate of 30%. As medical treatment costs in the developed world balloon - with the United States leading the way - more and more travellers are finding the prospect of international travel for medical care increasingly appealing. An estimated 150,000 of these travel to India for low-priced & affordable healthcare every year and the numbers keep increasing day after day. Cosmetic surgery is one of the most requested & in demand speciality for international travellers.

Dr. Sameer’s Centre for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery (CCRS) at Thane, India now celebrates 10 years of excellence in the field of Aesthetic surgery. Over the years international patients have opted for Aesthetic surgery at CCRS over the corporate hospitals and this prompted us to come up with Glamorus Getaways.

Glamorous Getaways is an extension of CCRS to provide a seamless experience right from your first contact with the Doctor Himself to taking into consideration all your travel needs & post op care. The idea is the fruit of feedback from lots of our patients and their experiences prior to planning their trip and having the confidence to take the leap of faith to travel to another country for cosmetic surgery. These are some factors which set us apart from the rest.

A Team of Board certified Plastic Surgeons

Dr.Sameer Karkhanis & his colleague, Dr.Bijoy Methil have spent a considerable time of theirtraining, studying abroad and are in sync with the latest technologies and cosmetic surgery techniques which means higher standards, better precision and care. Learn more about Our Surgeons.

Quality healthcare at reasonable costs

With state-of the-art hospitals, up to date technologies, & a team of board qualified aesthetic plastic surgeonsat the helm of things, patients can expect quality healthcare, assistance& advise. Dr. Sameer performs 90% of his surgeries at his own clinic & is also attached to Currae Speciality Hospitals. All these facilities are within a Kilometre of each other allowing instant access & follow ups by the doctor.

The Currae Hospitals have subjected their premises and systems to the most rigorous classification by applying for accreditation and certification assessed by a qualified standards organisation.

Direct approach with the Surgeon

Once you submit your query with pictures for a virtual consultation, you will be in direct contact with Dr. Sameer from that point on. We can schedule a Skype / FaceTime consult with him too at a mutually convenient time, in case you need any further clarifications or just FaceTime with your surgeon prior to making the big decision.

Big Savings

Some of the countries require extremely high costs for major or minor cosmetic procedures like liposuction, breast augmentation, facelifts, etc. As a matter of fact treatments in India are by and large far less expensive than elsewhere in the world. Almost each and every treatment is around 50-80% less expensive in India than in Europe, USA, UK and Oceania, without compromising on the quality of treatment or the final result.

More Savings

Glamorous Getaways is an extension of Dr.Sameer’s Centre for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery (CCRS). Therefore, you deal directly with the clinic, its staff & the Doctor himself, not any other “middlemen” or medical tourism company. This further brings down costs and puts more savings into your pocket.

Our local contacts are our own patients who have offered to help fellow travellers with tips to travel & the vote of confidence.

Extended Post operative care

With comparatively lower hospital costs, patients visiting us are also able to afford better quality services like extended hospital stay during recovery, nursing care and rehabilitation, which would otherwise be extremely expensive in their home country. We in fact encourage our patients to stay with us and avail the nursing care at the hospital itself as opposed to recovering post op at a hotel. Dr. Sameer, visits his patients twice a day while convalescing.

Warm Hospitality

The country’s code of conduct अतिथिदेवोभव; (The guest is equivalent to God) makes the Patient so much at ease that they feel almost like a guest on holiday from the moment they arrive at the hospital.Indians are proud that their national character that has won them a well-deserved reputation for their compassion and warm hospitality.

Bypassing waiting lists

The prior popular destinations for people in the quest of a perfect body such as Thailand, Bangkok, & Pattaya are now saturated and actually have a waiting list for cosmetic surgery patients extending to over 2-3 months. That could prove to be a long wait.

Customised approach

Glamorous Getaways has a well-thought out plan for visiting patients, which includes comprehensive services that range from obtaining medical visa, appointments, stay, nursing care, to facilitating transportation for medical care and even sightseeing once you are up and about following your surgery. If you are on a long vacation, a quick trip to Goa would be fun.
