Dr. Niro Sivathasan completed his bachelor’s and medical degrees from King’s College London and University College London, respectively, and worked across a variety of surgical specialties but focussed on plastic and burns surgery, and on head and neck reconstruction. This was followed by a 2-year higher fellowship in general cosmetic surgery in Australia, and then a 2-year ‘super-specialty’ surgical fellowship in cosmetic penile surgery as the sole fellow to a surgical professor (urologist), who was a figurehead in augmentation phalloplasties. Additional areas of specialized focus include bodylifting (after massive weight-loss) and buttock augmentation (including with implants).
Multiple postgraduate qualifications in general surgery, cosmetic surgery, and aesthetic medicine, were gained in America, Australia, and Britain. Now, ‘Dr. Niro’ is exclusively in private clinical practice and is a senior trainer and K.O.L. (key opinion leader) for the pharmaceutical and medical devices industries (since 2014). He has published over 35 medical articles, spoken at conferences around the world, written book chapters, and is reviewer and editorial committee-member for various medical journals in addition to being a recognised medical educator on the national and international stage.
Dr. Niro covers all areas of cosmetic (and restorative) medicine and surgery.
