I give Dr Sameer these ratings because he did for me what someone else found so difficult to do. He is an aesthetic plastic surgeon not just a plastic surgeon. I had many questions and doubts and he never lost patience with me. He always appeared calm and soft spoken. I chose Dr Sameer because of his prompt response to querries,he had great reviews, he gave a realistic goal and he was sensitive to racial differences.Having said that,I was still anxious until after I saw that every thing had gone well.

I checked his website and read the reviews. I thank my stars that I found an excellent doctor like Dr. Sameer. He comes from a family of doctors- both the parents, brother, cousins, are all doctors. So genius is in his genes. Even his hospital has a serene spa like ambience. My advice to everyone is to go ahead with cosmetic surgery if you feel you need it. Only be careful that you find a properly qualified and experienced doctor.

I Still remember my first appointment with Dr. Sameer Karkhanis, the best part during the appointment was that Dr. Sameer was very professional and he addressed all my concerns about what I could expect from the surgery. Dr. Sameer and his staff took the additional time ensure a natural look that so far is exceeding expectations. During the entire surgery Dr. Sameer was more a friend than a doctor who was trying to give you that comfort level and make the entire HT surgery an experience. Appreciated the time with Dr. Sameer and his commitment to customer satisfaction. My overall experience with the procedure and Dr. Sameer was outstanding.

Dr Sameer was excellent in all areas related to my surgery. He was recommended to me by a friend. A friend recommended Dr Sameer. During my first visit itself I felt comfortable to discuss my issues and concerns. He gave me a realistic and detailed explanation of what I could expect from my surgery. There was no pressure to decide then and there. I took my time and after a series of e-mail conversations with him I made up my mind and believe me - this is one of the best decisions I have taken in my life. I believe Dr. Sameer is an extraordinary medical practitioner. He is an extremely skillful surgeon who knows exactly what procedure is appropriate for a particular body type. Dr Sameer and his team have been simply marvelous. He took all precaution to address my health issues pre-op. I could see the results of my surgery on the second day itself. There was hardly any pain as it was managed well by painkillers - just some discomfort. The post operative care was par excellence. His patients’ comfort is of utmost importance to him and he goes the extra mile to put you at ease. He was very approachable even after I was discharged from the hospital. I stayed in the hospital for 12 days out of choice. I saw his astronomical amount of patience as no question of mine went unanswered. Dr Sameer’s integrity and high ethics of practice were clearly visible throughout my interactions with him. The hospital is comfortable and clean and the nursing and admin staff are very friendly and active. They leave no stone unturned to make your stay comfortable. Today I am a more cheerful and confident person, no more fears or worries. I am happily receiving compliments for my improved body contour now. I still experience some tightness in my abdomen which I understand is normal and will go away with time and I am looking forward to begin exercising and lose some more weight. So I would say Dr Sameer is absolutely worth it! Thank you Dr Sameer.

Read about Dr. Sameer online and realself. I went to India really nervous - but was very pleasantly surprised. I traveled to Thane to have high def liposuction and rhinoplasty surgery done. Both surgeries were done at the same time under full anaesthesia. The entire experience was smooth. Dr. Sameer was very generous with his one-on-one attention. His entire team, those who spoke English and those who didn't, were very competent. Coming from the US, I am beyond satisfied with my experience with Dr. Sameer. And I can't for the final results. This truly has been a life-changing experience!

Pretty simple, really. Sam knows his stuff, answered all my questions and concerns, basically "held my hand" through recovery, was very thorough in making sure I was healthy enough for the procedures, never pulled any punches, went conservative on my surgery so I would look like a younger, refreshed version of myself. We correspond every couple of days and he faithfully answers me. Not the least nor most expensive guy in India, but perhaps the best. I met several other patients who were there for things like lipo, tummy tucks, etc, who had done vastly more research than I had, and they were unanimous in their praise.

Always opt for the best qualified surgeons instead of choosing fancy clinics and going to surgeons who only advertise . CCRS is one such clinic which only focus for the best to be given to a patient .

My associatn started with Dr Sameer due to my son's hair transplant wch was dne by him and was a success . I was born 10 pounds and stayed on th fatter side thruout my teens did every possible thg to reduce .finally I did lose th wt as I joined th fitness industry and workd out real hard on myself i managed to tone dwn welll but my arms remained flabby as i culdnt do too much with my spondylitis issue . I Used to shop for all th possible lovely sleeveless and racer bck tops but didn't ever wear them . That's when I asked Sameer if he cld do somthg for my arms he said it was possible and that I wld get great results , though I kept grillg him quite often he patiently explained each time I called, that made me confident of doing th procedure with him . On th appointed day i went thru th procedure without any tension as Dr Sameer has very good staff too and i was bck home at nght . yes it was very painful initially as is with any surgery but th worst was to wear th pressure garment , I hav given dr Sameer hell by askg when can I stop wearg them and everytime he patiently kept convincing me to keep wearg them for a few days more though I did cheat on that occasionally . This was 3 yrs bck but I must say my arms look fabulous now and they look right in proportion to my body now I am wearing all the possible dresses I had stocked and feeling very happy abt it . I guess one shld consider making a few corrections on fat deposits thru surgery on certain stubborn areas which r really not possible with exercise as for dr Sameer he has become r family surgeon and any queries we hav regardg anythg medical we take his advice. Thnx S.S

Dr. Sameer and his partner physicians are dedicated to their craft. They think in terms of what will produce the best outcome for the patient, and are not all about their financial bottom line. The support staff, from the nurses to the front office, is courteous, responsive to the patient and caring. The facilities are reasonably clean and tidy. Dr. Sameer is not just a good surgeon, but also a warm and caring human being with great bed-side manners. I would not hesitate to recommend him to any one considering cosmetic surgery in India!

Couldn’t have found a better doctor & I know this because I come from a family of doctors. Clear, patient, transparent and available for even the silliest questions and doubts. I have referred a friend to whom who will be seeking a procedure in the next week or so. That should speak volumes about where I rate him.

Dr. Karkhanis is professional and above all else he is down to earth, taking his time to address any concerns from people all over the world. He is a master in his craft of reconstructing and contouring the body with minimal impact to it. His bedside manner and attention to detail are outstanding. You could not get a better surgeon! The rest of his team are cordial and have helped me with everything I've asked for, including assistance with booking a hotel and getting around Mumbai!

I write in this review after almost a year and a half of the procedure. I'm one of the patients who is hard to please, so this review from me comes only after I've seen the long term effects of my surgery. After a lot of research I finally approached Dr. Karkhanis in March 2012. He was extremely warm and had absolutely no aires about himself. I must say he is a very down to earth person and extremely kind. After my 2 pregnancies I'd gained a lot of unwanted weight and was absolutely depressed about it. Moreover, I wanted to go back to dancing and was looking forward to give my exams. When I told him so, he was absolutely blunt in telling me that along with the lipo, tummy tuck, flanks and arms, I need to dedicatedly work out and diet to get to the end results what I was looking for. He was the only doctor who told me what I should be expecting after the surgery - swelling, pain etc. It really scared me, but he assured that it was temporary and the results would be good. I left it at that and for some reasons I could not go back. There was no cold calling, no pushing. Then around May I got a call from his clinic asking me how I was and whether I would like to come in to see more results and photos. I went back the 2nd time armed with more questions. Had a look at the facility, spoke to his staff. I would like to highlight here, another USP of Dr. Sameer's clininc is his wonderful, loving and caring staff members. They make you so comfortable and at home that you tend to forget your pain. Seeing more pics the 2nd time made me a little confident and I decided to take the step. In June 2012, Dr. Sameer along with another doctor operated on me. What followed next was something I could not believe. I'd shrunk from XL to S and I was so very happy, but then I started to swell, it was not a shock as Dr. Sameer had prepared me for it and what followed was exactly what he'd said to me. No shock, no nasty surprises. But what I really hated following the surgery was the liquid drains dangling from my body. The staff took care of me and made my stay very comfortable. As told I diligently followed the steps given to me by Dr. Sameer. The physiotherapist at his clinic, Dr. Trupti, also gave massages to help reduce retention for a charge, and the results were excellent. The follow ups were great and though I was lazy and reluctant to go in for one, Dr. Sameer called up to remind me about it. As the months passed by it was a new me and here I am writing the final results after a year and a half. My sincere apologies to Dr. Sameer for this late review, but I guess he knows me and wouldn't mind it. All I have to say is, if you are looking for a professional with aesthetic skills and genuine doctor please do visit Dr. Sameer Karkhanis. He is a genuine person with lots of patience and very kind too. His bedside manners are excellent and his gentleman approach can really make you feel at ease. I wish him and his staff all the very best. I will be now approaching him for my next quest very soon.

I decided to go for Vaser liposuction after sheer frustration of not being able to lose the last tyre of fats on my abdomen even after 18 years of disciplined life style.Dr. Karkhanis told me that even with that tyre I looked ok but to finally achieve a better body I went ahead with it. Now it feels great, even after just a little more than couple of weeks after surgery I have decided that it was absolutely worth it. Dr. Karkhanis, god bless him, though I'm not the right person to comment on his skill, is according to me a very skilled Dr and I can safely conclude that from the great work he has done on me . I am totally happy and to have achieved this happiness and peace of mind with minimalistic pain , couldn't have asked for more. To anyone who aspires for a sculpted body, do visit Dr. Sameer Karkhanis, he will give you a realistic appraisal of your situation and proper guidance you seek.
