Most people dream about having a baby at least one point in their lives. However, some people are unable to fulfill this dream due to infertility. And like any other loss, the loss due to Infertility is grieved. But, thanks to the technical advances in the world, you can still bring your own baby into the family. Assisted Reproductive Techniques have made it possible now, these include- IVF, Surrogacy, ICSI and many more.
Surrogacy is a way of having a biological baby through commitment, dedicated and unwavering love. It is an arrangement between the intended parents and the surrogate mother, in which the surrogate mother carries the baby for 9 months in her womb for a couple who is unable to conceive and then gives them the baby once it is born.
However, there’s still some controversy about using a surrogate mother to have a baby. The legal process is also very tricky and varies from state to state. Even though surrogacy is a burning issue in India, our country is one of the top world destinations for surrogacy. Hence, surrogacy is always an option for you if you are facing fertility issues or have other reasons. This is because India has one of the best surrogacy agencies in the world, which provide the treatment at affordable prices with the highest success rates. Find out how it works and see if it’s right for you.
Gestational Surrogacy is one of the most common types of surrogacy. It makes sures that your child will not be biologically related to the surrogate mother, also known as the gestational carrier. It involves the use of IVF, a treatment in which the eggs and sperm of the intended parents or donors are used to make the embryo, which is then transferred to the womb of the surrogate mother.
Gestational Surrogacy is becoming more popular these days, as it does not allow the baby to have any genetic ties with the surrogate mother as their egg is not used to make the embryo.
There are numerous reasons due to which someone might consider having a surrogacy, they are-
If a gay couple decides to have a baby via surrogacy, they can use a traditional surrogate, in which one of them uses their sperm to fertilize the surrogate’s egg through artificial insemination. The surrogate then carries the baby and gives birth.
A gay couple might also choose an egg donor, fertilize that donated egg, and then have the embryo implanted in a gestational surrogate to carry until birth.
This is a big concern of intended parents, because they want to ensure that the surrogate who will carry their baby will be healthy, so that their baby is in safe hands. Vinsfertility ensures that the surrogate is properly screened before being chosen for surrogacy. They have to be-

According to the guidelines laid down by ICMR (Indian Council of Medical Research), the surrogates should get a medical exam to check that they are likely to have a healthy, full-term pregnancy. They should also get tests that check for infectious diseases such as Syphilis, Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, HIV, Cytomegalovirus, and Hepatitis B and C.
Surrogates should get tests to make sure they have immunity to measles, rubella (German measles), and chickenpox. Also, you may want to ask that they get a medical procedure to visually “map” the uterus, which can help the doctor check their potential to carry a pregnancy.
The cost of surrogacy can range from 10,00,000 INR to 15,00,000 INR. A lot of different things go into the price, such as whether the surrogates have their own medical insurance or whether you need to buy a surrogacy-pregnancy policy for them.
Botox is an injectable drug, which is used in cosmetic treatments to treat fine lines and wrinkles on the face. It is a type of protein made from Botulinum toxin, a substance produced by the bacterium – Clostridium botulinum, which is usually found in nature like – forests, lakes, soil, and in mammals and fish intestines. Temporary paralysis is caused in the muscle in which the drug is injected. The muscle is unable to contract as all the nerve signals to it get blocked.
Botox is a poison, but when used properly and in small doses by doctors, it is very beneficial. Earlier, Botox was only used for medical treatment of problems like- blepharospasm and other eye muscle issues. However, later it was approved to be used for cosmetic treatments and other problems as stated below.
In today’s world, Botox has become one of the most common types of Cosmetic Treatment. But why?
No one wants to grow old, however, even if you can’t stop aging, you can still look young by your face and Botox is the most appropriate and simple solution for it.
Botox Cosmetic Treatment is a non-surgical minimal invasive treatment that helps in the rejuvenation of your face by reducing fine lines and wrinkles, thus making you look younger than you are. The muscles in which Botox is injected do not contract, as all the signals from the nerves to that muscle get blocked. Which results in relaxing and softening of wrinkles and lines on the face.
It is considered a safe and effective treatment to treat wrinkles around the eyes, forehead lines, and frown lines. It is also used to modify other facial features like a defined jawline, lifting the corners of the mouth, smile correction, and many more. The end result is that your face appears to be younger.
Since Botox is a non surgical treatment, it hardly requires any preparation. And since it is a minimal invasive procedure without any incisions, it only takes a few minutes and you don’t really need anesthesia.
But before the procedure, make sure that your doctor knows about your medical history or allergies. And to help prevent bruising, you should not take any anti-inflammatory medication 2 weeks before botox treatment.
After removing all your makeup and cleaning the treatment area, your neuromuscular tissue will be injected with Botulinum diluted with saline. For a furrowed brow, you will be injected in a targeted area between the eyebrows. For crow’s feet (wrinkles around the eyes) you will need at least 3 injections on the side of each eye. The entire procedure takes around 10 minutes to get completed.
After getting Botox done, you should not apply pressure, rub or massage the injection site for at least 24 hours, otherwise, there is a risk of spreading the Botox to other surrounding areas. You will also be asked to sit upright for 4 hours by the doctor and to lay off exercising for a day.
You can start seeing the results after 24-72 hours. It may take up to 1 to 2 weeks to show full effect.
This treatment may last for 3 to 12 months depending on the type and area of treatment. Wrinkles and lines start coming back as the muscle action starts coming back gradually and will require treatment again. However, these lines and wrinkles will show less insight as the facial muscles are being trained to relax by shrinking.
Usually, there are hardly any side effects of getting Botox. There might be a little bruising or discomfort, but it goes away in some time. Side-effects include –
If these effects don’t subside, you should immediately call your doctor.
Generally, people who are above the age of 18 and have good health can get Botox done. But some people should not go through this treatment if they are

Q-2. Is Botox painful?
Ans. Botox is not a painful procedure. Some people might feel some pain and discomfort due to the injection, but it goes away after a short period of time.
Q-3. Is Botox safe?
Ans. Yes, Botox is safe, unless the person is breastfeeding, pregnant, has a neurosurgical disease, or is allergic to any of the ingredients used in Botox.
Q-4. Can you stop Botox once you have started getting it?
Ans. Yes, you can stop Botox if you want. It will cause no harm to your face. Just your muscles will not be as relaxed as they were before you first got Botox done.
Q-5. Does Botox make you look older after it wears off?
Ans. No, once your Botox wears off, you will not look older. In fact, the opposite happens. Botox will help you get rid of facial wrinkles and lines.
As you age, your skin becomes more prone to wrinkles and sagging. This happens due to a gradual decrease in muscle volume and elasticity caused due to sun exposure and muscle movement throughout your life like when- smiling, eating, grinning, frowning, and many more. To rejuvenate their face and get rid of these wrinkles and sagging skin, people get fillers, also known as dermal fillers, wrinkle fillers, and soft-tissue fillers.
As the name suggests, Fillers are used to filling the face/skin to make it look smooth and full. They are natural or artificial soft, gel-like substances that are injected under the skin (lines, tissues, and folds) to enhance it and make it look younger by adding more volume and fullness to that area. Fillers are used for various purposes like –
Fillers can be temporary or long-lasting. There are various types of filters used by cosmetic doctors each having their own features and ingredients. The most commonly used Fillers are –
Hyaluronic acid is a soft gel-like substance already present in your skin. It keeps the skin plump and hydrated by adding volume to cheeks, removing wrinkles around the eyes, lips, and forehead. The results are temporary, they last between 6 to 12 months since it is a naturally present substance in the human body, and the skin gradually absorbs it. To avoid discomfort during and after treatment, Hyaluronic Acid is infused with lidocaine. Brand names are – Juvederm and Restylane.
CaHa is found in your bones (naturally occurring substance). Calcium particles are mixed with a smooth gel before they are injected into the skin. When used as a filler, CaHa stimulates the natural production of collagen to smooth out deep wrinkles and lines. Calcium Hydroxylapatite has a thickened consistency than HA, and thus it lasts longer – usually for about a year. The brand name is Radiesse.
Poly-L-Lactic acid is a biodegradable synthetic substance that is safe to use on the human body. They stimulate the rebuilding of natural collagen to smoothen out lines and wrinkles-and the filler gets dissolved by itself after a few days of the treatment. This filler is semi-permanent as it can last for 2 years. Brand name- Sculptra Aesthetic.
Polymethylmethacrylate is a synthetic substance. When used as a filler, PMMA is made into tiny balls (microspheres) which are injected under the skin and remain there to provide a continuous lift to that area. It also contains collagens, which remove lines and keeps the skin firm. It is a permanent filler with results lasting for 5 years. However, they are not the first choice of a doctor as these long-term fillers have a higher rate of complications like infection. They are marketed under the brand name- Bellafill.
Autologous fat injections are a technique that requires surgery. In this, fat from your other body parts like buttocks is extracted and injected into facial areas. The fat is vacuumed out of the body with a hollow tube that is inserted into the skin through incisions. This method is called liposuction. It helps restore volume in cheeks, lower eyelids, and other areas. The results last for a very long time. This method should be performed by highly skilled doctors only and it may take a week or two to fully recover after getting this treatment done.
Filler injections are non-surgical (except autologous fat injections) and can take from 15 minutes to 1 hour depending upon the quantity and product which needs to be used. But before the treatment begins, you will meet with the cosmetic doctor for consultation. During this time, the doctor will check the area in which you want fillers and also review your medical history like – any previous medical treatment, skin condition, allergies, or any medication that can lead to harm or treatment failure. They will also inform you about the fillers, how they work and what you should expect in results.
Once you have met with the cosmetic surgeon, and have understood the Filler treatment process. The procedure will be as follows –
You might be able to notice the results immediately depending upon the product type, amount, and the area in which it has been injected. Some people have mild bruising or swelling, but this is temporary and should go away in a few days. Following this, you can return to your all day to day activities. However, there are certain aftercare instructions for Filler Treatment that you should follow-
How long do these Fillers last?
The duration of these fillers depends upon the product, site of treatment, and the metabolic rate of the patient. Generally, a product which is denser and more deeply injected will last longer than others.
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers –
Calcium Hydroxylapatite Fillers-
Poly-L-Lactic acid Fillers-
Autologous fat injections
There are some patients who have side effects after getting Fillers, but these do not last and might clear away within a week or two.
Even if getting Fillers is generally safe, there are certain things which you should keep in mind beforehand –

If you are one of those oblivious people, hair transplantation is what you need to restore a healthy scalp. (not that it matters) It will definitely make you feel more confident about how you look. But first, let us understand the procedure, need and results of hair transplantation.
Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure to fill a bald spot or a spot with thin hair. In this procedure, hair is taken from one part of the body known as the donor site and placed, grafted or implanted at the balding part of the body known as the recipient site.
Hair transplantation is a modern procedure, which is generally used to treat male patterns of baldness. In most cases, hair is taken from the back of the head as it is an area that is not at risk of balding. There is no risk of rejection of the transferred hair tissue as it is not foreign tissue. This technique is becoming extremely popular these days, due to the high success rate and advancement in its procedure.
Losing 50-100 hair a day is normal because, with more than 1,00,000 on your head, such a small loss is indistinguishable. This is how it works- the hair grows, stays for a while and then after an interval of time, it falls down. The lost hair is replaced with new hair and this cycle keeps repeating. But in some cases, this cycle gets disturbed and no new hair grows in the place of the fallen hair. If this continues for a while, you will start noticing thinning of hair or even see bald patches appearing on your scalp. This condition is known as hair loss. It can be permanent or temporary. In this case, you should immediately consult your doctor to determine the cause behind the hair loss and devise a treatment plan for you.

Knee replacement surgery (also called knee arthroplasty) is a surgical procedure to restore a damaged knee joint. In this surgery, the damaged bone and cartilage present in the knee joint is replaced with an artificial joint. Knee replacement helps an individual in restoring function by relieving the pain that could not be ceased by medication or other treatments.
The Procedure involves cutting away the damaged cartilage and bones from thighbone, shinbone and kneecap and using metal and plastic parts to cap the bone ends. Knee replacement is done to patients who have incurable arthritis or a severe knee injury.
Types of Arthritis that can damage the knee joint, sometimes making knee replacement surgery necessary, include:
Knee is the largest joint in the human body. It is necessary for the knee to work properly in order to perform everyday activities. It is basically made of two long bones which are joined together by muscles, ligaments and tendons. It includes- femur- lower end of the thigh bone, tibia- upper end of the shin bone and patella- the kneecap. All of these bones have a covering of cartilage which absorbs shock, protects the knee and enables them to move easily within the joint. The remaining knee surface is covered with a thin lining called synovial membrane which releases a fluid for lubricating the cartilage thus resulting in nearly zero friction in a healthy knee.
In a healthy knee, all of these components are present in the appropriate amount and work in harmony to carry out daily activities. However, arthritis or any other injury can disrupt this harmony which leads to pain, weakness and improper knee function.
You should consider getting a knee replacement surgery done if you have the following symptoms-
A knee replacement surgery usually takes 1 to 2 hours. In partial knee replacement, the surgeon only replaces the damaged parts of the knee with artificial parts made of plastic and metal.
Total knee replacement is a much more elaborate and a major surgery, in which the entire knee joint is replaced with an artificial joint.
After the surgery is done, you will be shifted to a different room for recovery during which, the anesthesia will gradually wear off and you will be given some pain medicine.
Most patients are kept under observation for one or two days in the hospital. During this time, a physiotherapist will tell you some exercises to strengthen your muscles, increase the blood flow and reduce the swelling for a speedy recovery.
A proper recovery is only possible if you follow all the instructions given by your doctor. They include-
There are certain things which you cannot continue doing after getting a knee replacement surgery. They include-
Even though a knee replacement surgery is hardly unsuccessful, it still carries some risks, like-
It is imperative to call the doctor right away if you notice any of the following signs-
In case your knee gets infected, the artificial knee will be removed and you will be given antibiotics to kill the bacteria. Once the infection is gone, a second surgery will be done to put a new knee.
Q-1. How much does a knee replacement surgery cost?
Ans. Generally used cobalt chromium in knee replacement surgery will now cost Rs 54,720 as against an earlier MRP of Rs 1,58,324. Similarly, the cost of special metals like titanium and oxidised zirconium have been slashed by almost 70%, to Rs 76,600 from Rs 2.49 lakh.
Q-2. What is the duration of a knee replacement surgery?
Ans. A knee replacement surgery generally takes about one to two hours. After the surgery, the patient is usually kept in the hospital for observation for one or two days.
Q-3. How long does it take to recover from a knee replacement surgery?
Ans. Recovery speed varies from person to person. Generally, it can take upto 3 months to return to your basic activities. And full recovery might take 6 months to one year.
Q-4. What is the best age for knee replacement surgery?
Ans. The need for knee replacement surgery depends upon the condition of the patient (pain). Usually, people who are aged between 50-80 years undergo total knee replacement surgery.
Q-5. Is knee replacement surgery a major surgery?
