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 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.

After putting my trust into a local but well known clinic and it being rated as –

“Best New Clinic and Best Business Development” by Aesthetic Medicine

My life was turned upside down, the surgery carried out went wrong and I was left with

scars indentations and in a mess, not knowing what to do or who to turn to I left it for over a year!


Finally after building up the courage to pursue the mess I was in and try and fix what had gone wrong

I found Nilesh and his team! and thank god I did….. they are absolutely amazing!

The care and understanding I was given was something I was worried I would not find, worried that

I would not be able to be fixed as such, but with Nilesh he gave me the belief that something could be done, yet he was also realistic.

Although extremely nervous I went through with the reconstructive surgery, the team of ladies that dealt with me

were amazing, kind and caring and listened to all my questions and concerns I knew from then I was doing the right thing.

I am several months on from the surgery and although I will never have what I pictured in my head due to the mess that was made by the last clinic I am over the moon with the outcome.

I would 100% recommend Nilesh to anyone who would like cosmetic surgery or like me reconstructive surgery.  He knows his stuff and I am truly grateful to him and his team for giving me back some of my confidence.

With no doubt I would turn to Nilesh again and recommend him to others.

Thank you guys for your support I am truly grateful.

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.

Dear Mr Sojitra,

Just a brief note to thank you very much for the excellent care I have received from you and your team.
I was very nervous at the initial consultation but found your bedside manner very relaxing and reassuring.  The advice you gave me was first class and the operation to increase my breast size with liposculpture to my stomach was exactly what I wanted and passed without any problems whatsoever.
Your aftercare too has been first rate and the post operative scars are the smallest I have ever seen.  Thank you so much.
As a professional glamour model, the enhancements you have given me have greatly improved my confidence and have already attracted great interest and job offers.
I am delighted to recommend your wonderful services and should any of your future prospective clients need reassurance, then they should check out the Koshmo Photography shoot on my portfolio website
The pictures were taken barely 5 weeks after my operation!
Kindest regards

Dr Sojitra was clear about what I should and shouldn’t expect from the procedure and at no point did I feel as if I was being sold to.  I stayed at the hospital over night after the procedure and with regular checks from the nurse.  I never felt overlooked.  Once I was back at home although my mobility was affected, discomfort was minimal and I found I didn’t even need to use my painkillers.
