Dr. Karishma Kagodu, a cosmetic surgeon from Bengaluru, is one of the most sought-after specialists in aesthetic surgery nationwide. She owes her success to her mother and the three ideals she upheld throughout her life—Passion, Persistence, and Perfection— the cornerstones of Dr. Karishma Aesthetics. Through Dr. Karishma Aesthetics, she enabled access to cosmetic and plastic surgery for people from all areas of life and is transforming countless lives.
Dr. Karishma is a fully trained, board-certified expert in all cosmetic plastic surgery procedures. With a particular emphasis on body contouring/liposuction, tummy tucks, rhinoplasty, revision rhinoplasty, facelifts, breast augmentation/reconstruction, gynecomastia, cosmetic gynecology, fat transfer, waist sculpting, 6-pack abs, facial rejuvenation, and other non-surgical procedures.

She is proud to provide both men and women with a wide variety of aesthetic operations at the prestigious Dr. Karishma Aesthetics facility in Bangalore, India. Despite societal issues and psychological upheaval, her main objective has always been to make plastic cosmetic procedures accessible for all social classes.
She founded Dr. Karishma Aesthetics in 2019—an advanced, all-inclusive cosmetic daycare center for procedures in cosmetic/plastic surgery, facial aesthetics, dermatology, skin lasers, medi facials, and cosmetic dental care. Only at their facility was advanced technology like the Alma Soprano Titanium laser hair reduction devices, VASER Liposculpting for Body Contouring, SilkPeel Dermal Infusion Medifacial, and others first introduced.
Dr. Karishma adds, “Initially, I started my plastic & cosmetic surgery journey at the Columbia Asia group of hospitals in Bangalore. I then moved to Kolar and worked as an Assistant Professor at Devaraj Urs Medical College. I have also gained intense plastic cosmetic surgery specialties from Aster Hospital Hebbal, Bangalore, India, where I have contributed for two years. These experiences, hands-on practices, and training have given me the motivation, belief, and joyous zeal to start my center.”
As a result, Dr. Karishma Aesthetics (a state-of-the-art top-tiered plastic & cosmetic surgery clinic/center) is thriving and has earned the title of being South India’s most sought-after plastic surgery center.
