Who are we?

The Venkat Center (formerly Venkat Charmalaya) was first established in Vijayanagar, Bangalore in 2003 by Dr. Venkataram Mysore and Dr. Jayashree Venkataram upon their return from abroad to Bangalore. It quickly grew in size and stature to establish as one of the premier institutes for dermatology in the country

During this time, Dr. Venkataram was one of the pioneers to introduce hair transplantation in India after training in Korea. Dr Jayashree similarly was a pioneer in tumescent liposuction after training in USA. Both of them grew to become internationally recognized authorities in their fields, and the center has performed over 3000 hair transplants and 1000 liposuction to date. They also introduced several other facilities such as lasers, aesthetic and skin treatments, to establish Venkat Charmlaya as a premier skin institute in India.

The success of the center led to the establishment of two other branches, in Cunningham road and Banashankari. It also led to the institution of a postgraduate fellowship program, recognized by the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences. Today this fellowship position is one of the most coveted for aspiring dermatologists.

Dr Aniketh Venkataram joined the center in 2016 and introduced plastic surgery services. He is one of the most highly trained cosmetic plastic surgeons in India, having trained in USA, Belgium, Istanbul, Taiwan and Dubai.

At present the center is one of the largest facilities for Skin and Plastic Surgery in the country, employing 10 doctors and 30 staff. It has also gained a reputation for providing ethical care. The center remains committed to community services and offers a special clinic ‘Shraddha’ for underprivileged populations. The center has also published several community education booklets.

All members of the Venkat Center are committed to providing the highest level of care and are engaged in research and teaching.  They have contributed to several books, journals and organized several national and international congresses.

We believe in three things above all

Expertise: Our doctors are internationally recognized experts in their field, committed to providing the highest care. It is also our mission to teach our expertise to the next generation, while striving to constantly better ourselves.

Experience: We have been providing quality care for over 15 years, and are pioneers in several fields including hair transplantation, liposuction and lasers among others.

Ethics: We believe in the responsibility of our profession and are committed to the best interests of our patients. We abhor and protest against commercialization of medicine and believe in delivery of evidence based standards of care to all sections of the society.

At the Venkat Center, you will find beauty, that is more than skin deep.
