The most popular plastic surgeries in the world — liposuction: breast augmentation: eyelid reconstruction and rhinoplasties (nose jobs) — are finding a new wave of takers across Indian B towns: cosmetic surgery clinics in Lucknow, Bhubaneshwar, Ranchi and Indore provide tummy tucks for at least 5-6 patients every week. There was a time when people would go to great lengths to hide the fact that they were undergoing cosmetic surgery. That is no longer the case — you still don’t want a gossiping neighbour to find out, but it’s an open secret amongst cousins and family.

Female ex-patients often come with their daughters-in-law cousins and aunts: suggesting nips and tucks.- Dr Sunil Kalda chief surgeon at Kalda Burn and Plastic Surgery Centre, Raipur believes that fewer patients travel to metros for cosmetic surgeries now since most small towns and district centers offer the same services at half the cost. Economics dictates a reverse journey — most small town clinics witness a flood of medical tourists and desperate patients since their services cost much less. A rhinoplasty that would begin at Rs. 45,000 in a Mumbai comes for less than Rs. 25,000 in Raipur. Facelifts that cost Rs. 2 lakh in Delhi can be had for one- fourth the price in Chhattisgarh.

WELCOME TO Raipur. Most metropolitan Indians would know this town only as Chhattisgarh’s rutty capital. The place the media writes of only as a stopover point to India’s mineral-rich and strife-torn heartland; the Maoist crisis in capital alphabets. But beneath this public reputation: Raipur is a different place altogether. All over town are people dreaming: planning: scheming for nips and tucks that will transform their lives forever.
