“The secret, I’ve found, is to listen to the individual patient and understanding what her or his expectations are. Being able to improve the lives of my patients, is what I find most rewarding about my work.”

I am a member of the Association of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeons of South Africa (APRASSA), and I provide all of my patients with the highest quality of personalised care. I strive for the best result in every case, with the ambition of improving the self-confidence of my patients. 

SURGICAL EXPERTISE

 Reconstructive Breast Surgery

Being a female plastic surgeon has equipped me with the unique ability to empathise with patients who approach me for breast reconstruction following breast cancer and other breast-related surgery. I bring together compassion and experience to afford these patients comprehensive care, whilst doing my utmost to ensure a favourable outcome. This extends to theatre where I work with an all-female team. I am further able to assist patients should they require secondary breast surgery. 

Reconstructive surgery following Skin Cancer Surgery

Working with referring dermatologists, I excise common skin cancers and reconstruct the defect, particularly on the face, leaving minimal scars and avoiding a skin graft where possible. I believe my patients reap the benefit of my attention to detail and careful tissue handling. 

Cosmetic Surgery

I have a special interest in a number of procedures including: 

Breast Surgery – Breast augmentation, reduction and lift | Correction of breast asymmetry | Gynaecomastia 

Body-contouring surgery – Mini- and Full Abdominoplasty (Tummy tuck) | Liposuction | Labiaplasty

Facial Plastic surgery  – Eyebrow contouring surgery | upper and lower Blepharoplasty | Otoplasty 

General – Removal of moles and other benign lesions | Scar revision | Treatment of Keloids

EXPERIENCE AND TRAINING

I studied medicine at Stellenbosch University and obtained my MBChB degree in 1989. I performed my internship in Pietermaritzburg at Grey’s and Northdale Hospitals. After travelling, including sailing in the Caribbean and Mediterranean, I spent four years in England where I completed my general surgical rotation and obtained my Fellowship in Surgery: FRCS in 1996. After qualifying as a general surgeon, I spent six months working in the prestigious Plastic Surgery Department of the Mount Vernon Hospital in Northwest London.  It was here that my passion for reconstructive surgery was awakened. I specialised in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of the Witwatersrand and qualified in 2001, receiving my FCS (Plast) (SA) degree.

I spent six years as a Consultant Plastic Surgeon and Head of Plastic Surgery at Helen Joseph Hospital where I gained invaluable experience in breast reconstructive surgery. I played an instrumental role in setting up the first oncoplastic breast unit in the state sector in Gauteng in 2003. I have since had the opportunity of being part of breast multidisciplinary units, this time within the private sector.

MORE ON BREAST CARE

I am fortunate to work with a select few outstanding breast surgeons. 

At Sandton Mediclinic, I share my rooms with Dr Lucienne van Schalkwyk. I have partnered with Dr Sarah Nietz and medical oncologist, Dr Ronwyn van Eeden to form Park Lane Breast Care, offering a holistic service to patients who are going through their breast cancer journey.  Park Lane Breast Care is an unique oncoplastic unit that sets itself apart in focusing on individual care and attention. http://www.plbc.co.za/
