Surgical complications do happen, and they happen to every surgeon in every specialty. Be aware of any potential complication and the potential cost involved in treating a complication before consenting to any surgical procedure. If you can’t afford a complication, then you can’t afford cosmetic surgery.

Fortunately, complications are rare. My complication rate is low and well in keeping with my top peers. I attribute this to meticulous attention to detail, performing only tried and tested techniques, and attending regular congresses both nationally and internationally.
I operate in attested operating theatres with an Intensive Care Unit close at hand. I enjoy close ties with top class specialists from a wide medical spectrum should the need for referral arise.

Below are some of the potential complications that can occur with any surgery, it is by no means complete. After consultation and examination procedure specific complications will be discussed with my patients in detail:

“Words can not describe how thankful I am that I chose to fly from Australia to South Africa to have my life changing surgery. I now have a perfect tummy!! You and your team made me feel I was in great hands through the whole process. Thank you for all the kindness that you and you office staff showed me through all the long distance calls and numerous emails, even the follow up visits after my surgery. You are a great team and made the whole process very special. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
