How do you know what your calling in life is? Well… it’s not always clear or easy at the beginning, right? I was the same.
All I knew, was that I loved being creative and I had an artistic eye. When I was 19 years old I finished High School and sat my university entrance exam in Sri Lanka so I could then get a scholarship to study architecture. My teachers and my mother believed that I could be a doctor if I wanted to be and that was exactly what happened. Life is full of gifts and surprises, when I got selected into Medical School I left studying architecture to become a doctor.
I must admit that I always struggled to discover the creative and aesthetic side of medicine because I was not completely satisfied without using my creative skills. I made a decision to go to the UK and obtain my Medical registration however then I made Australia my home back in 2008.
I completed my internship with General Medicine, Obstetrics and Gynaecology and was doing Orthopaedics when I moved to Australia. In WA, I had the opportunity to gain experience in Plastics and Reconstructive Surgery, General Surgery, Emergency Medicine and so on. Then I became a GP and moved to Queensland.
I discovered the way to combine creativity and medicine the moment I decided to pursue my career in Aesthetic Medicine and I started with my very first training in Toronto Canada. I did some training in the USA and in London afterwards. I joined the American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine and actively participate in training newcomers.
I believe in preventative medicine and a holistic approach when I practice aesthetic medicine. As practitioners, we have to address someone’s physical and psychological wellbeing.
Our body, mind and soul are equally important.
I also believe an active lifestyle, a healthy and balanced diet, having a balance in personal, social and professional life is all very important to create a beautiful and happy person.
In aesthetic medicine, what we do is identify someone’s natural features and enhance them.
Fitness, art, music, dancing, cooking, fashion, creating spaces such as interior design are some of the things that I love and do, they help anyone lead a balanced life.
Be humble and never forget your beginnings. Always make time for anyone who needs a helping hand especially your loved ones, your family, friends and work colleagues. be kind to each other.
Identify the inner beauty of you and we can help you enhance it and bring it forward!
One of the treatments I love is Medical/Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty which we perform quite often in the clinic. I like the way it can improve someone’s image, appearance and self-confidence. You need an experienced aesthetic practitioner who knows the proportions of the face and how to correct and preserve different angles related to the nose.
