Aesthetic practitioner Dr Mayoni Gooneratne has become the latest addition to the Aesthetics portfolio’s Clinical Advisory Board.
Dr Gooneratne began her medical career as an NHS colorectal and pelvic floor surgeon, and is now an aesthetic practitioner specialising in women’s intimate health and wellness. She is the founder of Dr Mayoni’s Human Health – an initiative championing the use of functional medicine to tackle the root causes of ill health and aesthetic concerns. She is also the co-founder of The British College of Functional Medicine.
Dr Gooneratne joins clinical lead nurse prescriber Sharon Bennett, nurse prescriber Jackie Patridge, plastic surgeons Mr Naveen Cavale and Mr Adrian Richards, ophthalmologist and oculoplastic surgeon Miss Elizabeth Hawkes, dental surgeon Dr Souphiyeh Samizadeh, aesthetic practitioner Dr Tapan Patel and dermatologist Dr Stefanie Williams on the Board.
She commented, "I am truly honoured and utterly thrilled to be involved in Aesthetics in this way. The future of health is about knowing how to look and feel fantastic, which begins with a true 'cell-up' approach. The aesthetics specialty has a lot to gain from a better understanding of the science of longevity and wellness. We are also in the incredible position in aesthetics of having time and space to be able to recognise, educate and support our patients with their cellular health too."
