Body Procedures

Body enhancement surgery may be required because genetics has been unkind to you, after weight loss, after pregnancy or because of aging. Where possible I try to do things through small scars which basically means liposuction (liposculpture if you prefer), sometimes with fat grafting (breast, butt). But some issues may need excisional surgery to remove excess skin or to gain access to tighten muscles.

The body enhancement procedure which I offer in my practice include:

  1. Liposuction (= liposculputure as it is always a sculpting procedure)
  2. Large volume fat grafting: for breast or butt enhancement
  3. Tummy improvement: abdominoplasty = tummy tuck
  4. Arm improvement either with brahioplasty or liposuction or both

I generally do not do the following procedures: various body implants (except breast), major body lifts like thigh and butt lifts (although I do achieve some lifting with liposuction and fat grafting).

Liposuction is the commonest procedure that I do for body enhancement. Areas that can be treated with liposuction in women include the usual areas between the bust and the knees. But almost any other part can be treated with liposuction too: the neck, arms, flanks and even calves. Liposuction is attractive because it is minimally invasive, in other words it leaves inconspicuous scars.

Fat grafting requires liposuction to harvest the fat and fat is then recycled to where it is needed, frequently the butt or the breasts.

Excisional procedures are useful where skin and fat require removal. Excisional procedures which I offer include tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) and brachioplasty, excision of excess skin from the arms. Frequently excisional procedures are combined with liposuction.



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 !!!!
