A health care practitioner with nearly a decade of experience treating patients, Dr. Vikram Jayaprakash utilizes a whole-patient approach to medicine. He currently serves as the Clinical Director of the Auckland, New Zealand-based clinic Younger by Design. In this capacity, Dr. Jayaprakash employs the functional medical matrix model to determine how such factors as a patient's heredity, lifestyle, and emotional condition affect his or her health. The functional matrix model states that health is influenced by a number of internal and external things. Rather than simply addressing symptoms of maladies, the methodology used by Dr. Vikram Jayaprakash emphasizes balance in systems of the body and biochemistry. Dr. Vikram Jayaprakash combines the functional matrix strategy with bio-identical hormone replacement, which can help many people regain hormonal balance, especially those whose levels have dropped in response to menopause or aging. Restored equilibrium of their biochemistry enables many patients to forego more rigorous medical treatments, which are aimed at treating the symptoms rather than the causes of their ailments. In addition, Dr. Vikram Jayaprakash performs a number of non-surgical cosmetic procedures at Younger by Design. He utilizes the Phi concept to identify the proper injection sites and amounts for such cosmetic applications as Botox and dermal fillers. The Phi concept, a series of Greek mathematical formulas for beauty applied to various natural structures, became a hallmark of aesthetic surgery after a California plastic surgeon developed the "phi mask." The phi mask technique incorporates a ratio of 1:1.618 to achieve what many accept as the most pleasing facial features. Although he is well known for his practice of anti-aging medicine, Dr. Vikram Jayaprakash also works as a General Practitioner at the Auckland-based Marsden Medical Practice. The position requires him to diagnose, treat, and oversee long-term wellness issues associated with chronic and acute health conditions. A graduate of the University of Southampton School of Medicine, Dr. Vikram Jayaprakash later completed his residency at Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth, England. During his residency, he undertook enhanced studies in such practice areas as dermatology, nephrology, and oncology. Following his residency, Dr. Jayaprakash pursued additional training in England.
