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 what you were hoping for. 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!


Can’t wait to see end result of upper eyelid operation! I had an upper eye lid operation. I can recommend this op to anybody wanting it. I had no pain at all, but my eyes were swollen for a week (nothing dark glasses can’t hide). I can’t wait to see the end result!
 Excellent service. They got back to me within minutes after inquiring about the op and price. The clinic is clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. I was confident with my choice in clinics and Dr Lazarus did a brilliant job. –  Jolyn
