Dr. Rani Umul Khair is a dynamic female plastic surgeon with a vast experience in diverse sub-specialties of Plastic Surgery.
Surgeon by profession, she is also a painter and a sculptor. Her artistic skill has immensely helped her develop her surgical technique with finesse and precision. She is a firm believer in evidence based medicine and keeps herself updated with recent advances in the field of plastic surgery. This has benefitted her patients with more advanced techniques and technologies.
Dr. Rani believes that when she operates on a patient she leaves her signature on them for life. She proudly affirms “After all its my signature, I make sure it appears the best”.
Hailing from southern part of India, after receiving undergraduate and post graduate training in her home-state, she moved to New Delhi, the capital of India where she received Post Graduate Training in Plastic and Reconstructive Microsurgery from Safdarjung Hospital, which has one of the oldest plastic surgery departments in the country.
After her plastic surgery training, she pursued a fellowship in Cleft lip and palate at G S Memorial Hospital, Varanasi under the smile train programme. This centre operates among the largest number of cases of cleft lip and palate cases in the world.
Then she joined Lilavati Hospital and Research Centre in Mumbai, the business capital of India, where she was trained for microvascular surgery under the stewardship of renowned Microvascular surgeons and gained a vast experience in handling complex cases.
She then moved to UAE where she joined Mafraq Hospital, Abu Dhabi which is a tertiary care public hospital, owned and operated by the Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA). She attended and performed complex surgeries and was appointed as a member of their research committee.
Dr. Rani travelled to Brazil to be trained by Dr. Ivo Pitanguy, in cosmetic surgery.

With an artistic eye and thorough understanding of the anatomy of underlying structures, delivering excellent results in liposuction is what she is known for. Her sculpting skills help her to carve out the underlying anatomy and help her clients achieve the sculpted appearance. She is very possessive about the results and makes sure her patients closely follow up with her, so that she can monitor the post operative changes closely, guiding them with their diet and motivating with exercises.
Breast Surgeries is what she is most passionate about. For women seeking breast augmentation, Dr. Rani delivers natural looking enhanced breasts through thorough counselling and assisting her clients to make the right choices with the most appropriate option for their body type.
Women with enlarged breasts have symptoms that affect the neck, spine and shoulder. They develop skin problems and suffer from low self-esteem. Dr. Rani provides breast reduction for these women and helps them through this journey by carefully and sensitively addressing their concerns. She also performs breast lift/ mastopexy in women who have volume deficit with sagging breasts.
Multiple pregnancies can loosen the skin on the tummy and make the breast skin lax. Mommy makeover is the solution to address both these issues at the same time. Dr. Rani has a vast experience in providing mommy makeover, helping hundreds of women regain their pre-pregnancy shape and confidence.
