EDUCATION AND TRAINING
From Consultant To Private Practice
“I left the hospital in 2006 for private practice,” he says, “but I’ve remained involved as a part-time consultant, training registrars – something I’m passionate about.”
He also regularly attends local and international cosmetic surgery conferences and courses, to stay up to date with global techniques and advances.
Good communication achieves the best result
“In order to achieve a result a patient is happy with, I need to have a thorough understanding of their requirements, which is why informative communication between us is vital.”
He stresses that patient safety takes top priority, which is something he takes great care with. “Predictability in cosmetic surgery is something that a patient values, and I appreciate the need for a predictable outcome.”
Supportive and nurturing
“Cosmetic surgery is about minimising physical imperfections, and I am a perfectionist – one who strives for excellence every step of the way.”
He has published in leading Plastic Surgery Journals, and his other credentials include:
President-Elect and founding member of SORSSA (Society of Rhinoplasty Surgeons of South Africa)
Sessional Specialist at the Department of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, University of Cape Town & Groote Schuur Hospital.
Membership of the Allergan Medical Institute (AMI), and previously a consultant to Allergan and mentor for Breast Augmentation training.
