How did Dr. Jegasothy Become the Best Cosmetic Dermatologist in Miami?

Born in Sri Lanka, raised in Pittsburgh, Dr. Jegasothy had no intention of settling in Miami when she first arrived. With her undergraduate work at Harvard and a medical degree from the University of Pittsburgh, she did postgraduate work at Yale and then at University of Miami’s Jackson Memorial Hospital. 

This was the crucial crossroads where Dr. Jegasothy made the choice that has lifted Miami’s butts, smoothed its fine lines, and made so many of the local beach bodies more beautiful. 

Miami natives have certainly heard of Winter, but unless they really seek it out, the true nature of that season escapes them. Dr. Jegasothy, with her childhood in the wintry climate of Pittsburgh, and after having spent much of her educational career in the northern US, came to Miami for a residency at Jackson Memorial Hospital. After one winter in Miami, she decided to live there for the rest of her life. She’s never regretted this decision. From November to April, she cannot imagine a more wonderful place to live. Dr. Jegasothy loves to practice in such a lovely place with people who want to look beautiful.

Alongside the climate, Dr. Jegasothy has always been charmed by the multiculturalism that Miami offers. No one asks where you are from based upon your looks. She’s never felt prejudiced against in Miami. 

Once she decided to stay and practice cosmetic dermatology in Miami, Dr. Jegasothy worked tirelessly for more than two decades to create a practice that utilizes cutting edge technology along with the best medical research to achieve incredible results for her clients. Her road to success was a bit like making it to Carnegie Hall: Practice, practice, practice. Although we must say, there was a lot of education involved as well.

As a devoted traveler, she attempts to visit each continent once a year (except Antarctica; there are no restaurants there), although she gets to Australia a bit less frequently. She loves to visit foreign countries and eat the local fare. The Basque region of Spain has a particular attraction for her.
