Mumbai – The Maharashtra government’s decision to withdraw all restrictions related to the Covid-19 pandemic and making facemasks optional has brought happiness and cheer among the plastic surgeons in the city.
It is a well-known fact that plastic surgeons are like Photoshop and Auto-Tuner of the healthcare industry, to correct God’s mistakes. For the last two years, plastic surgeons were the worst hit among all the medical specialisations, battling drought like dry OPDs. Due to the mask, no facial features are seen, and there were hardly any patients seeking enhancement of their facial structures, bosoms and other ‘stare inducing’ features.
In an exclusive interview with the Quackdoses, Dr. Kutting Chahiye, a famous Mumbai based surgeon said, “Plastic surgeons were hit hard twice in recent years. 1st was when the government banned ‘plastic’ in the country and we had to then start calling ourselves reconstructive or cosmetic surgeon. 2nd was due to COVID when people stopped coming for planned nose, chin or lip jobs, skin surface and other beauty enhancing procedures. With such wide reader base of the Quackdoses, we would like to urge everyone that, for facial rejuvenation, crease-free and scar-free look in the ‘mask free world’, do visit the plastic surgery departments now.”
Unconfirmed sources have claimed that SoBo (South Bombay) ladies are still in shock thinking it is an April fool joke by the government, and are left wondering what to do with their designer masks and diamond studded mask chains now.
