Dr. Sugitha Seneviratne recieved a Review

7 October, 2021

March 2012, I was told if I didn’t do something I would need to undergo a knee reconstruction….at the age of 43, it was not recommended. There was no way I was having surgery. I knew I couldn’t physically cope with it, it was the last thing on earth I wanted to do, go to hospital and have surgery! So with the advice of an Orthopaedic Surgeon I began to exercise.
I exercised 5-6 times a week and gradually worked up the intensity from walking in the pool to going to the gym. I also made changes to my diet. With 5 years of exercise and healthy eating I have now lost 105kg’s, with that, I gained extra, baggy unwanted skin! I knew what was to come next Surgery! What I avoided 5 years earlier was what I desperately wanted now, a real circle of thoughts.
I meet with Dr Sugitha Seneviratne, to chat through my options, what was needed and what I could do to prepare myself for this next stage of my transformation. After each surgery, we planned and discussed what was to come next. I was guided by her expertise and professional knowledge.
October 2016 I began with 1 of 3 operations, arms, legs and tummy. With each surgery the anticipation I got leading up to it, I became more excited with what the outcome was going to be. Never was I nervous, maybe a little anxious with the anticipation. The lack of nerves came from the complete confidence I had going in to each surgery, I had complete trust with all staff at North East Plastic Surgery especially Dr Sugitha and Nurse Sue. They empowered me at all times, re assured me and were professional but in a relaxed manner to put you at ease. With their expert knowledge and experiences they supported me along each step to make a full recovery to be as easy and successful each time.
I would with complete confidence recommend Dr Sugitha and the group of colleagues she employs, it made the experience easier seeing familiar faces and people who genuinely showed support, encouragement and cared for you.
April 2017, with my new body, recovery of my third operation almost over, I am excited about living a new life, in my new transformed body. Give it ago, you have nothing to lose, other than your unwanted skin!
