Dr. Kumar has a particular passion for breast and body surgery. There are only a handful of surgeons around Australia who have dedicated themselves to focusing on this area alone. Body contouring surgery, especially after massive weight loss, is a key part of his practice, and he is one of the appointed plastic surgeons at the Sydney Institute for Obesity Surgery (SIOS).

Dr. Kumar also performs body contouring after pregnancy (sometimes called a “mummy makeover”) and in procedures such as Breast Augmentation, Breast Reduction, Breast Lifts (with or without implants), Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) and Liposuction.
