Plastic surgery can be life changing. My web site, like my practice, aims to make your plastic surgery experience as easy and positive as possible.
I am an experienced plastic surgeon. I work with a small, dedicated team, and together, we will care for you from start to finish. Apart from some social responsibility work (for children with cleft lip and palate), my practice is exclusively cosmetic surgery.
My philosophy is to keep things simple, that less can be more, that safety is paramount and that the patient – you – come first. My goal is satisfied patients. Satisfaction is achieved when your expectations are met and you achieve your goals. Satisfied patients are what keep me happy in my work and my practice busy.
Operation Smile mission, Feb 2014, on the Cavour, an Italian aircraft carrier. It docked in Cape Town and we did some cleft surgery on board. In the picture above I am giving a TV interview. Not sure why I am looking so battle weary!
A note on before and after pictures
Many plastic surgeons display large galleries of before and after pictures on their websites. Plastic surgeons in South Africa are discouraged from doing so according to our HPCSA guidelines. Patient confidentiality is important to me and my practice and therefore I have limited my site to display only a handful of before and after pictures merely to demonstrate typical patients and usual outcomes. All pictures are of my own patients and displayed with consent from the patient. A picture is worth a thousand words and the internet is a visual medium. I believe that the pictures add value and they are displayed with the intent of helping patients and prospective patients better understand a procedure. I do not email a bunch of pictures to patients making enquiries either. I will, however, show you the before and after galleries at the time of consultation. I hope this approach is understood.

“Being a little nervous for my procedure prior to surgery, I resulted in feeling very safe in the hands of Dr Lazarus and his team, who are by far the most attentive medical practitioners that I have ever experienced. From the moment you walk into his practice, you feel as though you are at home. From my consultation period, right through to the follow up consultations post surgery, the Tranquility Clinic team have been incredible- always available for any questions and extremely patient and compassionate. I highly recommend Dr Lazarus and couldn’t thank him enough for the incredible artwork that he has created for me.”
“This plastic surgeon is excellent, his team friendly, supportive and exceptional. Absolutely no hesitation in recommending him. Utterly trustworthy , knowledgeable, experienced and professional with quality aftercare and always accessible after surgery. My results were beyond my expectation and I am only in the first month of recovery. I entrusted Dr D with my one daughter and another will be undergoing a procedure with him. They are a caring family; unpretentious…sincere from beginning to end.”
I’m a 30 year old flight attendant with previously AA cup size, I’ve always wanted Brest augmentation since the age of 19 when i knew my breast weren’t gonna grow any further. Anyway I’m based in the Middle East and initially wanted to do my surgery in Thailand but change my mind last minute and started researching plastic surgeons in Cape town, where I’m from. I thought it’s much better if im home with family and surrounded my people that can help me in my initial recovery period, Dr Dirks page popped up and I immediately emailed him, he replied almost instantly and I was very impressed. I then delt with Anneli the secretary over the last few months before my face to face consultation with Dr Dirk and she answered all my nervous questions via email, everyone was so professional and really helpful. Got my three weeks vacation holiday and did my surgery about two weeks ago and never looked back. Dr Dirk and his team are absolutely fantastic!!!! I couldn’t be more happy with my 300cc choice and dont regret a single moment, this is the best gift I’ve bought myself! I can’t wait for the final result and show off my new boobies … Thank you Dr Dirk, Anelli, Danni and Elmari for such fabulous service and for taking such good care of me. Will definitely be recommending this surgery to all my flight attendant friends back in the Middle East !!!!
