Dr Natasha Vavrek
Dr Natasha is a local GP, who completed her Bachelor of Medical Science, Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (graduating with honours) at the University of Tasmania in 2009.
Since completing her medical studies, Dr Natasha has worked at the Launceston General Hospital (spending most of her time working in Emergency Medicine), the Northern Tasmania Refugee clinic, Family Planning Launceston and has also become a practice partner owner at Summerdale Medical Centre.
During this time she has also successfully completed her General Practice training, becoming a Fellow of the Royal Australian College of General Practice in 2013 and gaining herself the examination medal for highest examination score. She also holds certification in Sexual & Reproductive Health and is a qualified IUD (intrauterine device) inserter.
Dr Natasha has a special interest in cosmetic medicine and is a strong advocate for a medical approach to aesthetics. She has completed training in both foundation and advanced techniques for the use of anti wrinkle injections and dermal fillers. She also has many years of clinical experience in surgical procedures such as excision of melanoma, squamous/basal cell carcinoma, lipomas and sebaceous cysts, just to name a few. With her experience as a medical doctor, along with a passion for cosmetic medicine, she hopes to provide Launceston with a more personal and dedicated injectable service.
Her philosophy, along with that of Purebody, is that every patient should be under the direct care of a doctor through each step of any medical treatment, that being from consultation through to administration of cosmetic injections and follow up. Each patient is unique so a medically prescribed, individualized patient centered approach is preferred rather than a one size fits all approach.
She is passionate about creating natural looking results and is willing to work together with her patients to find a healthy look. At this stage, through her partnership with Purebody, she will only be offering botulinum injectables on selected days but aims to expand into dermal fillers. She will also continue to further her skills in advanced techniques through appropriate training.
