So I have met with Dr. Sreelatha and her staff and absolutely love them. I automatically felt comfortable from day 1 with their work and follow up care. Her wonderful care and attention to detail shone through from the first time I met her and have continued to shine even ow that I am one month post- op. With the results, I did not realize how drastically I used to look until seeing my pictures. I am thrilled to say each week continues too improve as my body heals and skin tightens up. Dr. Sreelatha and her staff were very supportive and motivating with my diet and exercise program. With their support and the results I have seen, I have fully regained my confidence in my body, see a new me in the mirror and am more motivated to work on my goals to hold on healthy weight and staying healthy. My recommendation is the program is worth it and to be mentally prepared for the big challenge.

Breast reduction

I met Dr. Sreelatha at my dental clinic for her dental treatment. During one of her visits when I was talking about my sagging breast and was expressing my concern to correct it, she showed me few of her patient's pre op and post op pictures. I was amazed at her results. I felt I had to correct it since I am more of a public facing woman. I decided to meet her in her clinic. She explained about entire clinical procedure (laser breast reduction) and I gained confidence after talking to her. The entire procedure was under local anesthesia like she had mentioned. I had little or no discomfort at all. The entire procedure was over within 2 hours duration. I was very comfortable during and after the procedure. I could see immediate results and I walked back hoe with no pain. It is 10 days now and I feel a lot of difference and I am happy about it. On the whole if I should say, Dr. Sreelatha has an excellent hand skill and an amazing set of team members. I wish silkee clinic all the best for their future endeavors and I am thoroughly happy that I got my treatment under Dr. Sreelatha murugappan.

They enforce the vision of beautiful form they are working towards in the mind of the person they are working with and are with them each step of the way celebrating each small triumph towards achieving the beautiful goal.

Weight loss

I am undergoing treatment to reduce abdomen and to reduce my weight. I am able to feel very light now and some reduction in my abdomen within a few days of treatment. Doctor's advice and special care has changed my lifestyle itself, food habits etc. They give appointment and follow it up on dot, so no waste of time for the patients. They have good staff nurses who do the program very patiently and they understand what is our tolerable level for the laser treatment and d o it perfectly. Doctor gives special care for all the patients and she addresses the nurses every now and then how the procedure has to be done and where the problem is. After taking treatment here. No one can go back to their pre treatment stage even after the program is over. Such care and advice is given in this clinic.

Digestive problems are usually due to eating too much oily spicy food and having too little water. .. If you change your diet methods/routine you can permanently cure this problem. Avoid taking medicines unless there is emergency. I will suggest natural method to cure this problem permanently. 1. Drink two glasses of warm water on waking up. 2. Have a glass of water every hour throughout the day till 8 pm. 3. Have 3 dry dates(chuara) and 6 Kishmish daily 4. Eat One banana, one cucumber and one apple per day between meals. 5. Evening have a glass of milk with a spoon of honey. 6. Avoid pickles papad puris parathas pakodas...namkeen ..Samosa..kachodis etc. 7. One glass Nimbupani with breakfast and evening tea. 7. Eat your normal meals slowly and chew properly Follow this routine properly for two weeks and your problem will be solved.

Mr. Lybrate-user, acid reflux is a functional disorder. Though many theories are there for its cause but still no cause has been established thoroughly. I would advise you for the following: 1. Do not stay empty stomach for long durations, have small meals at small intervals. 2. Exercise daily and take small amounts of protein foods/drinks. 3. Have lots of fruits and vegetables, provided fruits do not aggravate your problems. 4. Have meal two hours before the bed time and do not take drinks like tea or coffee before going to bed. 5. Do not over consume liquor, though you can have small amounts but not empty stomach. 6. Proper sleep is must. 7. Do not over stress yourself with work or family issues, feel confident that you can manage any situation and things are well in control. Planning is good but expectations before any task are bad because they give disappointments, just plan and act and do not believe in result until and unless you get it as desired. 8. Spicy fried and fat foods are not good for you. 9. Avoid much of bakery items and fast foods. 10. You should begin some stress buster activity like cycling, swimming, cooking, short vaccations on weekends, free time with friends and family. All these things will help you in tackling your problem, but you shall follow these advises for a few months, because it takes time to change habits. Hope for you a speedy recovery.
