I am a board certified cosmetic surgeon also the Founder of Aesthetic Beauty Centre.
When we trained in medicine, there was no mention of Aesthetic surgery or medicine. I was intrigued by the different applications of the first machine (Vasculight) and subsequently added a further 12 machines from various companies over the next 3 years
Between 2002 and 2010 we were the largest Aesthetic laser clinic in the UK.
In medicine most people come to see us due to illness or a health matter however in cosmetic medicine or surgery we try to look after the patient’s aesthetic needs, improve their confidence and help them get on with life
“I think in the NHS the medical professionals are geared to look after the Physical wellbeing of the patient and overlook their inherent want to look better”
I qualified in India in 1986 and worked in a tertiary surgical centre in Calcutta (now Kolkata). After my surgical attachments, I came to UK to progress my training in surgical specialities. I worked at different surgical specialities for the next 7 years including trauma, emergency medicine and Orthopaedics.
In 2000, I was invited to attend a training session in Lasers by Lumenis. I started my Sunderland clinic at Ashmore Terrace doing non-surgical treatments and lasers. In the same year, I also obtained admitting rights at South Tyneside NHS Trust to do cosmetic procedures
Subsequently, I did a cosmetic surgery fellowship and sat for the board certification exam through the World Academy of Cosmetic surgery
