Dr. Shanthala Shivananjappa
Medical Director

Dr. Shanthala Shivananjappa is a board certified anesthesiologist and extremely talented and invested physician. She has been practicing medicine for over twenty years, having been trained at Harvard, Yale, and by some of the best dermatologists and plastic surgeons in the country. Her extensive knowledge of medicine, paired with years of training in aesthetic procedures, have enabled Dr. Shanthala to provide her patients with an unrivalled care. But in addition to expertise, Dr. Shanthala offers her patients something more: compassion. Every individual who walks through her door is treated more as a friend than as a potential client. She takes the time to listen to, understand, and explain the procedures to all of her patients because she believes that a healthy, trusting relationship between doctor and patient is just as important as the outcome of the procedure itself.

When ShanthalaMD Medspa and Laser Center had its grand opening approximately two years ago, Dr. Shanthala stated that “beauty encompasses how you feel on the inside and on the outside.” Her aim is, and has always been, to make her patients feel happy, beautiful, and confident in themselves and their appearances at every age. Her patients range from teens to individuals in their eighties, both male and female. Some patients come to Dr. Shanthala for self-improvement, perhaps to touch up an area of themselves that they are not comfortable with. Others seek products and procedures that will enhance the health and appearance of their skin, or to achieve a more youthful look. So regardless of your age, gender, or reason for visiting Dr. Shanthala’s office, know that when you do, you will be treated with the utmost care, compassion, and skillfulness. There is no comparison to the doctor, or the person, that Dr. Shanthala Shivananjappa is.

“I owe everything in my life to the most important person in my life – my mother. I would not be the woman, doctor, and mother I am today without her. Her encouragement and belief in me to be well-educated, well-rounded, hard working, and independent have inspired me to pursue a dream of mine that is finally coming true: launching Shanthala MD, my very own Aesthetic Medicine practice.
Beauty, to me, encompasses how you feel on the inside and on the outside. Being beautiful is looking good, feeling confident, and loving yourself at every age.”

Our Staff

Dorothy Kelleher, RN
Patient Coordinator

Dorothy has practiced as a Registered Nurse for many years in acute care settings. She began her career in the ICU, spent many years in the ER eventually finding a new challenge in the Operating Room. She is currently working with Dr. Shanthala at ShanthalaMD MedSpa and Laser Center.
As a mother of three beautiful and successful children and a grandmother of four, family is very important to Dorothy and her husband, Hugh. We, at ShanthalaMD, are thrilled to have Dorothy as part of our family.”Plastic Surgery was often performed in the OR. From face lifts and augmentations to liposuction and fat transfer…I saw it all. The transformation that occurred was amazing. Patients could have their body sculpted and enhanced. But—and the big but—is undergoing anesthesia, incisions on your body, and the time required to heal. Also, the possibility of infection, scarring and unsatisfactory results.

Now I practice in a field that is a game changer. You can get unwanted fat on your body removed with cold, your face tightened and lifted non invasively, the hollow areas on your face filled, lines erased, lips enhanced—all with no surgery. These are amazing times we live in. Both men and women now have the opportunity to look and feel better about themselves and not ‘undergo the knife’.
Working with Dr. Shanthala is my new career path. She is a wonderful role model both as a person and a medical professional. I love our patients and am honored to help them in both their decision making and the process of having non-invasive esthetic procedures performed at the best Physician run MedSpa on the Northshore.”


I, Dr. Shanthala, am fully committed to the treatment and betterment of my patients. Assure you that during your time with me I am fully dedicated to you, and your treatment, in both body and mind, I will do whatever it takes for my patients. Any concerns or questions will be answered to the best of my abilities, and any stress on the mind of my patients will be alleviated.

I gurantee it.
