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.

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.”
This email comes late as I have purposed to do this since the beginning of the year. I came to you in January 2009 to have reconstructive surgery for a scar on my face. For many people it did not seem a big deal but somehow, I had failed to accept as I could not even look at my face because of it.
You did an excellent job. With the limitations you explained to me, the scar has now healed with a year of plaster/ tape. I still see where the scar originally was but it is now almost unnoticeable that I hardly take notice of it.
I now go about confidently, never hiding my face with my hand as I used to do in the past.
Also, you were so gracious to let me use the coach house at only a fraction of the price. You will never know how truly grateful I am. I will always have fond memories of Cape Town.
Thank you so much. Please extend my thanks to your team also.
God bless you,
