    Patient Reviews


    I belong to Canada but prefer all my cosmetic treatments from Dr.Vikas gawri in Ludhiana. One can actually feel his vast experience of 15 years through the consultations and procedure planning. Various sizes of Chin implants were available and he chose my implant carefully in the morning before my surgery according to face measurements. Glad that I got this done.
