When Khloe Kardashian recently made news due to her confession of wanting her breasts done following her pregnancy, The Daily Mail reached out to Dr. Devgan for her expert advice on the subject.

Many new moms consider breast procedures for a rejuvenated look and fresher cleavage. Dr. Devgan says, “Volume and reshaping are required for full cleavage. We can do this either with breast implants or with auto-augmentation [breast lift] —  a technique where a patient’s own breast tissue is rearranged in a more perky and round manner.'‘

Breast augmentations continue to be one of the most popular procedures in the plastic surgery field, with procedure times ranging between 30-60 minutes. Dr. Devgan has performed over 100 breast procedures since 2016, and recommends smooth implants over textured due to a more natural feel, and fewer issues for patients. Read the full article here.

"A Man Had Part of His Ear Cut Out in a Controversial “Conch Removal” Procedure" - Dr. Devgan Weighs in for Allure

People all over the world are talking about Charles V. Bentley, the Australian man who had portions of his external ear removed, perhaps one of the most extreme versions of body modification. After images circulated of Bentley’s stitched up ears, otolaryngologists to plastic surgeons have thoughts about the procedure.

Bentley went to a “body modification artist” in Stockholm, Sweden, since most doctors highly discourage such a procedure. By altering the natural shape of the ear, the functionality will most definitely be affected, not to mention the residual side effects and small chance of reversal.

Allure reached out to Dr. Devgan, who says, "The risks of conch removal include bleeding, infection, undesirable scarring, wound healing issues, and the extreme difficulty of reversal. Conch removal is not easily reversed due to the complex anatomy of the ear, the importance of the cartilage support network, and the tenuous blood supply there. A combination of tissue flaps and grafts, which are highly complex plastic surgery procedures, would be needed." Read full article here.

"INTERVIEW: LARA DEVGAN, THE PICASSO OF PLASTIC SURGERY" - Dr. Devgan interviewed by Danielle Ransom of Julie von Boehm

Danielle Ransom of Julie von Boehm, a media company dedicated to fashion and beauty, recently interviewed Dr. Devgan, dubbing her the Picasso of Plastic Surgery. The interview touches on Dr. Devgan’s prowess in her field, due to her aesthetic and artistic approach to procedures.

Dr. Devgan' is known for her subtle aesthetic, having said, “subtle is the new dramatic,” which seems to be a newer idea in the plastic surgery industry. “Every face and every feature has something beautiful about it. Part of the conceptual aspect of what I do is figuring out what those beautiful things are, and working to maintain and preserve them. Otherwise, you can have this weird extreme where someone loses the character of their face; where their main distinguishing features look different, and it almost feels disturbing,” she says.

Much of Dr. Devgan’s approach to her work stems from years of being trained as a classical artist, and seeing every patient’s face (or canvas) as an already-existing work of art. “One of the most interesting things I find about people’s faces is not what makes them beautiful, but what gives them an identity. [As a surgeon] it is important to understand the characteristics that create the feeling of you; what can we change and still look like ‘you’?” Read the full article here.


NEWBEAUTY Spring 2019 Issue - Dr. Devgan Discusses Dealing With Aging Hands.

Dr. Devgan will be featured in NEWBEAUTY’S upcoming issue which unpacks how to defeat the signs of aging hands.

For centuries, painters, sculptors, and photographers have had obsessions with the human hand, and how it functions. Dr. Devgan says, “The hands are incredibly complex, with 29 bones and 34 muscles controlling their movement.”

However, when it comes to aging, our hands aren’t exempt. From sun damage to blisters, even excessive hand washing, they take a beating. Luckily, modern medicine can help. Plastic surgeons can utilize noninvasive techniques like injectable fillers to decrease the signs of aging hands, or surgical options like fat grafting. Fat grafting “is like spreading melted butter on a bagel - the fat settles into all the nooks and crannies in a soft, supple way. Fat is in abundant supply in most of us; it’s permanent; and it’s inherent stem cells may benefit skin texture and quality,” Devgan says.

Yes, "More People Are Getting Plastic Surgery. Here’s Why" - Dr. Devgan featured on Healthline

Dr. Devgan was recently featured on Healthline in an article entitled “More People Are Getting Plastic Surgery. Here’s Why,” which explores cosmetic enhancement in an age of body positivity, and how these ideas aren’t necessarily in opposition of each other.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 1.8 million surgical procedures and 15.9 million noninvasive procedures were performed in 2018. Dr. Devgan says, “Most patients seek [cosmetic] procedures to feel like the best version of themselves. There’s a magical paradox I’m helping people achieve: looking the same but better.”

With the rise of social media, we seem to be consistently confronted with both the unapologetic sentiments of millennials, along with a constant stream of photos of ourselves. Devgan adds, “People are much more comfortable owning their self-care rituals — including those that involve needles and knives. I have patients come into my office and request to be on my Instagram feed, which is something we never would have seen 5 years ago.” Read the whole article here.

New Yorkers might be the most resilient of city-dwellers, but we can also be the most run down, which doesn’t exactly do wonders for our looks. Luckily, from massages to facials, we’ve got help. When it comes to rejuvenation, Dr. Devgan’s Gold Microinfusion Facial doesn’t mess around. Publications like Elle and Glamour have raved about Devgan’s treatment, and even Kate Sandoval, Beauty Editor of Shape, dubbed it “the best facial of my life.”

The Gold Microinfusion Facial utilizes the microneedling technique, but with a twist, “by infusing tiny amounts of botox and hyaluronic acid fillers through a special vial equipped with gold-plated needles (that’s the microneedling part), patients walk out with minimal downtime—generally just a little post-procedure redness.” Read the the full article here.

'Rich Girl Face' is the Cosmetic Surgery Trend that Everyone Wants in 2019 - Dr. Devgan featured on her.ie

Dr. Devgan was recently interviewed on Her in an article entitled “'Rich Girl Face' is the Cosmetic Surgery Trend that Everyone Wants in 2019,” which discusses the evolution of how we view cosmetic enhancement.

From botox and fillers to chemical peels and lasers, the accessibility of cosmetic work has also assisted in de-stigmatizing it. In years prior, plastic surgery was considered shameful, and only for the stereotypical woman who lacked substance; but this new generation of patients is wearing their work as a symbol of pride. Plumped lips and flawless skin have become last decade’s Louis Vuitton handbag, some even dubbing this look as “rich girl face.”

Though Dr. Devgan isn’t a fan of the phrase, she’s doing her part to normalize cosmetic improvement. Devgan says, “we’re in the era of minimally invasive medical aesthetic procedures. I think that is not only because of low downtime, lower cost, and lower invasiveness, but also because there's lower stigma and lower barrier to entry." She frequently expresses to her audience that it’s okay to want to look and feel your best. Read the full article here.
