Welcome To Thomas Academy

In the year 2002, World renowned Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Mohan Thomas returned to India after completing Advanced Training in Cosmetic Surgery and Advanced Non Surgical Aesthetic procedures in the US. Because of his tremendous interest in teaching he realized there was no Cosmetic Surgery training being imparted in India. People were undertaking procedures without knowing their implications and the few people who were well trained were not interested in imparting their knowledge. This was the time when the non-surgical procedures were being increasingly used in western countries and with no quality training courses available in India people had to travel abroad to learn. This led him to initiate a Post Plastic Surgery Fellowship in Cosmetic Surgery which later on got its affiliation with the D Y Patil University.

Why is Dr. Thomas Academy the right training provider for you?
