Ambika Soni Planning Cosmetic Nasal Surgery for 'Big Nose'

Tired of her 'big nose', Tourism and Culture Minister Ambika Soni wants to undergo a cosmetic surgery to make it sharp and beautiful. 'I have been thinking of doing a nose job for quite some years, so that I can get rid of my big nose,' Soni said Tuesday.

'I don't remember since when I have been thinking about it. The problem is I am too sensitive and don't know which hospital to go.'

Soni was addressing the India Health Summit, organised by the industry lobby Confederation of India Industries (CII) and India Healthcare Federation (ICHF).

The two-day meet, which began Tuesday, will chalk out a roadmap for the Indian healthcare industry.

From celebrities to would-be brides and from bridegrooms to school students, people from all walks of life are opting for cosmetic surgery.

An estimated 150,000 people, including those from abroad, go for a facelift every year in India.

Speaking about patients from abroad visiting India for medical treatment, Soni said: 'Medical tourism has a huge potential. Private hospitals will be the direct beneficiaries if more foreigners visit India.'

She added that the long waiting time at hospitals in some developing countries was turning more patients to India. 'We have efficient doctors, world-class infrastructure and a vibrant culture to attract foreigners to India for both healthcare and enjoying exotic places.

'Things have changed over the years. India is progressing and is in the focus for economic growth,' Soni said, adding that the country needed more hospitals, doctors, nurses and hotel accommodations to capture a large pie of the world health tourism market.
