PLANNING FOR YOUR PROCEDURE: My before and after surgery patient instructions are here.


Facial enhancement may be done to improve facial features or facial shape and to prevent or alleviate the signs of facial aging. Facelift is the procedure most people think of when they want facial rejuvenation, but facelift forms only part of facial rejuvenation. There are often many options available, both surgical and non surgical. At consultation I will give you the best and most cost effective plan for your face. The aim is to prevent and minimise the signs of aging and to enhance and rejuvenate your facial appearance.


Procedures for the breast are either to make them bigger (breast augmentation), smaller (breast reduction) or to lift the breasts (mastopexy). Areolar reduction and correction of inverted or large nipples are also procedures which I offer. Breast asymmetry correction may involve any combination of the  above procedures or correction of tuberous breast or Poland’s syndrome.


These include liposuction, tummy tucks and arm surgery, either with liposuction or excision of excess tissue (brachioplasty).


Men provide their own challenges. Typical procedures which men seek are correction of man boobs (gynaecomastia), liposuction (typically tummy and waist area; neck) and facial improvement or rejuvenation.


Dear Anneli I came to Capetown from UK about 9 years ago and sought out Dr Dirk for cosmetic surgery. He performed a tummy tuck, lipo, and facelift on me during my time there and I don’t think I have ever written to thank him for the wonderful work he did. Thank You to him and all you ladies on his staff. I attach 2 shots of me on the beach in France, showing my nice flat tummy.
