Abdominoplasty, Female, Hertfordshire

My tummy tuck was done April 12th 2017 and 11 weeks later my scar  is healing exceptionally well and stomach muscles considerably stronger. My tummy looks perfect and since loosing that extra skin I have gone from a size 12 back to a size 10 in trousers. By week three I was back to work and by week 9 was able to restart my sport as my stomach muscles are now feeling much more stronger. I was delighted throughout, from my first appointment for consultation to my time spent in hospital to my outpatient follow up appointments. All staff were very friendly and welcoming and kept me very comfortable and advised me throughout from what the procedure would entail to what to expect during weeks to follow for recovery. I am so very delighted with how straight forward this has been and would strongly advise this procedure to anyone considering a tummy tuck.

My thanks go to Mr Sojitra, Teresa, Carolyn and all of the staff whom were involved in my care. A truly outstanding team.

Kindest regards

Thank you to Mr. Sojitra for doing a fantastic job!
After having four c sections and a hysterectomy, I had a lot of overhang of my stomach,
When I had to have a hernia operation, I opted for open surgery, having a hernia repair and the scar tissue from my previous operations removed at the same time!
I was totally surprised by the results, my tummy is flatter than it has ever been and Mr. Sojitra  even tightened my stomach muscles.
I could never have imagined such great results,
I would thoroughly recommend using Mr. Sojitra, and would use him for any future surgery,
Thank you again,
And a special thank you to his nurse Teresa, who put me at ease and answered my questions throughout the whole experience!

Abdominoplasty and Liposuction, Female, Hertfordshire

After a c-section nightmare, i was in constant pain & restricted in my movements. I was terrified at the prospect of abdominoplasty to rectify problems caused by the initial procedure. After much deliberation I met with Nilesh & instantly felt very comfortable with his relaxed, albeit very confident approach. I thought about it for a few months, then took the decision to have the surgery. There was no pressure. I visited Nilesh again just for reassurance. He understood my concerns, put my mind at ease.
On the day of surgery I was incredibly calm, I was in good hands. The pain was a lot, however it was managed very well by the wonderful staff, always on hand. I had a 2 night stay at spire harpenden.
I didn’t encounter any serious problems post surgery, just paranoid that I would get an infection in the stitches. It never happened, the dressing was changed & kept very clean by Teresa, the lovely lady who gives all the help & support you need. Considering I was so terrified, I can’t believe it went so well. 2-3 months post surgery I was feeling better than ever. It will be 12 months until all settles down I’m told. I’ll always be grateful to Nilesh, Carolyn & Teresa & the team for being the reason I feel better now, than my old self ever did!

I’m a 39 year old woman, who after having had two children found I could not shift my baby belly, I realised a tummy tuck was my only option. After looking into surgeons, I came across Nilesh Sojitra at the Spire Hospital.

At my first consultation I found Nilesh very easy going and easy to talk to. He went through what I could expect from a tummy tuck and that it was not a procedure to take lightly, we also spoke about breast implants as this was also something I had thought of having done, he recommended doing both together. I went away with all my info.

I had a second consultation with Nilesh confirming that I wished to go ahead. I tried different sized implants to find the ones that suited my frame best. I was happy with everything, so I was booked in for the 11th of December 2013. Carolyn, Nilesh’s personal assistant took me around the hospital rooms to just give me an idea of what to expect, and also answered questions.

On the day of my surgery, I was check in and showed to my room and given time to settle in before the nurses came and did blood pressure etc. Nileshs came up sometime later to mark out on me and check all was well.

After surgery I was taken back to my room, a bit spaced out and very sore. The nurses popped in every half an hour or so. I saw Nilesh later that evening, and also Teresa the cosmetic nurse, both saying everything went well and he was pleased with the surgery.

Once home, I found it tougher than i thought, but I had Teresa checking in via text every day, she would answer any questions I had and always put my mind at ease.

 I’m now 10 weeks post op and very pleased with the results, and I know I still have a few months until I get the full affect. Nilesh and his team did a great job ………… …………

Thank you

I would have no hesitation in recommending Nilesh Sojitra, and the team that support him in Harpenden, if you  are considering surgery.  It is never a simple decision to go ‘under the knife’ and I do not think anyone would do it without proper consideration.  I carried out careful research before I spoke to Nilesh’s PA Carolyn, and from first contact I cannot fault the professionalism of his team.  Carolyn sent me details to consider and there was no pressure at all to make a decision.


I met Nilesh and discussed what was driving me to consider surgery, namely that after a C Section I had been left with an overhanging stomach that was not in proportion with the rest of me.  I had tried dieting but I never lost the stomach.  By the time I went to see Nilesh my body image was poor and I was miserable.


Nilesh had a frank and open and friendly discussion about the surgery, what could be done and the time it would take to heal and I agreed to move forward with surgery.


I have to say that 6 months on I am really happy with the work done and cannot fault the care I was given both when in for the surgery and after discharge.

It is exactly six months since I underwent an abdominoplasty, performed by Mr Nilesh Sojitra, and it is one of the best things I’ve ever done.

Although I am fairly slim and keep in shape, I have never liked my stomach and always felt it was out of proportion with the rest of me.  As I entered my forties, extra rolls of fat appeared – not just around my stomach but my ribs – and I knew as I got older it was not going to improve although otherwise I remained fairly petite.  So as I entered my fifth decade, I decided to investigate the options and had two consultations with different surgeons.  I was hoping that perhaps just some liposuction would suffice, but both consultants explained this would not give the result I was hoping for as slack skin would remain.

I met Mr Sojitra twice before making the decision to go ahead.  He came across as relaxed, positive and unstuffy.  The hospital staff were friendly and professional and I was not subject to any “hard sell” tactics.  I took time to read case histories and research thoroughly in order to make an informed decision.  Although the cost was rather higher than I had hoped or anticipated [although both consultants quoted roughly the same], there was no way I would ever consider going abroad or for any kind of cut-price deal.  I also spoke to an ex-patient of Mr Sojitra’s who herself worked within the health service – he had been recommended by her colleagues and had a reputation for very neat stitching, so this was very reassuring.

Once I decided to go ahead and was booked in, I can honestly say I did not feel at all anxious as I felt very confident about my surgeon and the hospital.

My procedure included liposuction to flanks and tightening up slack stomach muscles to achieve the optimum result.  Although it was explained to me that the surgery is not as radical as a caesarean, it nevertheless takes about four hours so is a fairly major operation.  Having to sleep sitting up for the first week or so was difficult as it put huge strain on my back and moving around to start with took time and care although I ensured I kept mobile and did a reasonable amount of steady walking.  I do a lot of walking and have been practising yoga for years and I’m convinced this made a huge difference to the speed and success of my recovery.

I live alone and although I had friends checking on me and ferrying me to hospital a couple of times, I self-cared and it wasn’t a problem as I had made preparations beforehand.  I followed the after-care advice of Mr Sojitra and the Cosmetic Nurse (who was excellent) to the letter and six months on, the lumpiness of the scar is nearly gone and the redness is beginning to fade.  I have not regained sensation in one area of my stomach and do not know if this is permanent, although I am not overly concerned.  I weighed myself when I returned from hospital and had lost half a stone and I’ve been determined to maintain this weight.

It is still a novelty to look down and see a flat abdomen and stomach where before I saw rolls of fat!  Friends who I confided in were surprised I felt the need to have surgery but then I always covered it up well and am not otherwise large.  Those same friends often pay me compliments now as I am able to wear favourite figure-hugging skirts which had just languished in the wardrobe for years.  It is fantastic to be able to buy clothes and not feel constrained by having to disguise my middle and that things now fit properly although I haven’t rushed out and bought lots.  My biggest thrill has been putting on things I haven’t worn in a long time (or since surgery) which now look even better.

I am happy to speak with anyone who is considering undergoing the same surgery with Mr Sojitra.
