About Singelberg Clinic

Cosmetic , Plastic , and Craniomaxillofacial surgery in Belgium by Dr Bert Oelbrandt and Dr  Noorman van der Dussen and Dr Steven Colpaert , in a team approach, working both in the private (Singelberg) clinic and 2 belgian NHS hospitals. We are a surgeon-led independant clinic. Every patient is treated as a unique patient and will be seen before and after the operation by ourselves, the surgeons.

Our specialties :
Dr Oelbrandt : Plastic Surgeon, Cosmetic facial, breast and body surgery.
Dr Frans Noorman van der Dussen : craniofacial, maxillofacial, and FFS surgery.
Dr Steven Colpaert : all aspects of breast reconstruction after breast cancer.

Your procedure can be performed in the private Singelbergclinic as a daycase (breast enlargement , smart liposuction , eyelid , ....) The main difference with the Sint Jozef hospital is that you can't stay overnight, and all procedures are done as a daycase , under a light general anaesthesia or sedation (twilight).
If your procedure is more difficult (full general anaesthesia : breast reconstruction , tummy tuck , breast reduction, rhinoplasty , maxillofacial surgery, craniofacial surgery , FFS, orthognatic surgery ...), then it can be performed in the Belgian NHS hospital Sint-Jozefhospital or in the Eeuwfeesthospital, close to the well known Flemish town of Antwerpen (20 km), but still only 30 kms (20 miles) from Brussels, the heart of European affairs.

"A hassle free experience! :)"
Clinic's favourite review

Treatment Received: Rhinoplasty
I had rhinoplasty at the Singleberg clinic with Dr Oelbrandt. The atmosphere was very relaxed and I was not pressured into the surgery. The price was much cheaper in Belgium compared to those in London. The result was excellent and very natural looking which was important to me. I recommend Dr Oelbrandt and the Singleberg Clinic to anyone considering surgery. Dr O also has an office in London which he visits frequently and the trip to Belgium is quick an easy. A hassle free experience! :)

"The result is really good, my face has a nice flow."

Treatment Received: Cheek Implants
I had a cheek augmentation with Dr. Norman van der Dussen. I had the impression my face looked a little gloomy and disproportionate and figured out it had something to do with the shape of my cheeks.

1) First of all I wanted a surgeon who is experienced which he absolutely is.
2) Secondly, I wanted a cranio maxillo facial surgeon who knows the human face and its bone structure inside out.
3) Now we come to the most important point:
As Beverly Hills beauty surgeon Francis Palmer rightly remarked the problem about cheek augmentations isn't the difficulty of the procedure. The skills you need are moderate, of course you need the right training and education, but that's it. The bigger problem is: Most surgeons don't know what they are doing, they don't have an eye for the proportions of the face, for the ideal of beauty they are searching to create. That's why many results aren't as good as they could be, because surgeons don't chose the right implants or don't understand sufficiently what exactly they should change about the face.

Norman van der Dussen is one of the leading experts in Europe as regards feminization surgery. What has this to do with a cheek augmentation in a male face? Well, everything! Dr. van der Dussen has an absolute eye for what makes a female and a male face beautiful, where the small differences lie! Some surgeons operate a male face as if it was a female one thereby creating e.g. too round cheeks. Van der Dussen has a very good understanding for the overall beauty of a face and the gender differences.

I wasn't dissapointed in my choice. First as regards attitude Dr. van der Dussen is a very modest man who tries his best to make his patients happy and that is a very good attitude for an aesthetic surgeon. He has a no bullshit approach to surgery and tells you exactly what he thinks must be done and what can be achieved and what not. His assistant in the Singelberg Clinic is a very nice person and I always felt welcome. The surgery happens in a central regional hospital where everything is at hand in case of need. The staff there was very friendly and helpful as well.

The result is really good, my face has a nice flow. Van der Dussen didn't just insert one cheek implant, but several smaller ones in order to guarantee optimal proportions. I can highly recommend him and his team.

"I would strongly recommend the Singelberg Clinic and Dr Noorman van Der Dussen."
100%Reviewed 22 Oct 2016 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: FFS - Facial Feminization Surgery
Im a Swedish MTF going thru the journey of Transitioning.
I have been on hormones for a while, but my face was still way too masculine to be able to pass in public.
I Previously had Rhinoplasty and a chin reduction in Scandinavia to try to Feminize my face, but it didn't turned out very good so I decided to go for a Professional in Facial Feminization.
I also had a previous jaw surgery in Sweden to correct an overbite, which gave me an even manlier jawline.
After a lot of research and consultations I went for The Singelberg Clinic and Dr Van der Dussen.

The consultation was really good. I had some mail contact before with his assistant Marije, who has been taking care of the booking and traveling instructions etc. I also got some drawings on what we were aiming.

My chin was very masculine and square, so the Doctor had to do a sliding genioplasty to remove a lot of bone and also move the chin as It was assymetric before.
Turned out this was a challenging operation as they had to work under a nerve, so I'm happy I choose someone experienced for this.
The nose had an "open roof deformity" and bad scaring from the previous surgery and was also way too masculine for a transgendered woman.

It took me some time to heal, and although I consider myself being a stable person mentally, I must admit that I was a bit depressed during the healing period with the swelling and bruising . It just takes time before the swelling goes away and the result shows up.

Now one year later, I look much more feminine and with the help of hormones things are finally staring to shape up. I still have the adam's apple, some hair removal and I don't even wanna think about the lower surgeries...but i'm definitely on the right track.
Overall Im very happy that I went down to Belgium for this.

Dr Noorman van der Dussen certainly knows his art. He seems to know how much to take to balance things out without making it unnatural or plastic. Looking at his resume I felt like this was one of the better guys in Europe. He is also very easy to communicate with over the internet thanks to his secretary who responds very quick by mail. The clinic is clean and nice without being over-designed which felt good. The walls is covered by diplomas and degrees ( rather than hyped advertisement for fillers and products etc, which is too common in Scandinavia these days) I had my surgery in Sint Jozef Hospital which is a full equipped hospital with a full Narcosis team. The staff was great and very helpful, putting on ice on the swelling and came in to check on me and I never felt left alone. I stayed at hotel De Notelaer after I left the hospital and they actually gave me the top Suit to heal up in although I had only booked a single room. It was really nice as it gave me some privacy being all swollen and blue. Bornem is a very nice town/village and I felt totally safe walking there and the people are friendly and down to earth. I would strongly recommend the Singelberg Clinic and Dr Noorman van Der Dussen.

"Excellent, I have been thoroughly looked after"
100%Reviewed 20 Aug 2016 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Rhinoplasty, Bone Graft
I wanted to write this review to reflect how happy I am with the work Dr Noorman Van Der Dussen carried out for me and to help others considering cosmetic surgery.

I had a Rhinoplasty and Cheekbone graft with Dr Noorman and I can't thank him enough for giving me such amazing results.

Understandably, I was nervous to have the procedures done for many reasons. I was worried I would look completely different and the obvious worry is that something will go wrong! Truthfully, there was no need to worry. Dr Noorman is a true expert and did exactly what he said he would do!

Dr Noorman hasn't just given me the nose I have always dreamed of, he has given me the confidence I have always needed. I would shy away from photographs and I didn't have confidence meeting new people due to my hollow cheeks bones and curved nose, but now I can honestly say this isn't a problem for me anymore.

The money spent to correct my features is very little for the lifetime benefits I will receive from having surgery and I will be forever grateful to Dr Noorman.

Please, rest assured Dr Noorman is a true expert in his field and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to fiends and family.

Excellent, I have been throughly looked after.

I am 19 and I had saggy size (B) breasts. Firstly I had a uplift which I was very happy with. I then went for my second surgery where I had implants, and I couldn't be more happier with the outcome.

Singelberg Clinic is located in a lovely area, it is very clean and well kept. The staff in there are very friendly. I would like to thank Dr.Oelbrandt for everything he has done.

"The scars have decreased"
100%Reviewed 16 Feb 2016 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Breast Lift
26 years old, Breast Uplift by Dr. Bert Oelbrandt done in August 2015.
Very happy with the procedure and my surgeon, love the outcome and would go back again if needs be. Highly recommended! Dr Bert kept in contact when I went back home and healed during the upcoming months via email to see how I was doing, the scars have decreased now and I am still putting my creams on them.
I would go back to him in heart beat if I ever needed anything done again.

I went to Belgium from Ireland to get the surgery, the surgery was a success and Dr Bert checked up on me the next day, I took three days after surgery to fly back and heal at home, its been 6 months now and my breasts look great! The scars are minimal and I am very very happy with the result! I have recommended the clinic and Dr Bart to my friends and family who are thinking of this surgery, it honestly is the best thing I could have done for myself and I would do it again in a heart beat.

"I would certainly recommend this clinic"
70%Reviewed 02 Jan 2016 We were unable to verify the reviewer.
Treatment Received: Breast Liposuction
I had gynecomastia for over 12 years. 10 year ago I had a first operation by a plastic surgeon almost 10 years ago, which in fact only did some liposuction in the breast area and not not really removal of the tissue. The result was never satisfying and the gyno tissue continued growing.

The recovery went very fast, after 2-3 days there was no more pain and after 1 week I could again almost do everything as normal. The results look already very good after 2 weeks.
Dr Oelbrandt is straightforward and passionate by his profession. The private clinic is comfortable and has a personal touch.

I would certainly recommend this clinic and Dr Oelbrandt!

"very professional"
90%Reviewed 27 Dec 2015 We were unable to verify the reviewer.
Treatment Received: Tummy Tuck
I contacted Dr Oelbrandt after I'd been looking for a surgeon in Europe and he'd been recommended to me. I like the fact that he comes to London for consultations and his knowledge and experience is evident. He was very brutal in advising me that I needed to lose some more weight before undertaking a full tummy tuck with muscle strengthening. He set me a target before surgery and I did achieve this. If you are unsure I would recommend going to see him, he may not tell you want to you want to hear but he'll tell you what you need to hear. The operation cost me about £3,500 instead of about £6,500 if I'd have had this carried out in the UK. The operation has made a big difference to me and I'm so pleased that I decided to go for it and sort out my stomach area. It was a big decision to leave my family for the week and put myself first which is hard when you are a Mom. My children didn't want me to go and I knew there was always a risk associated with going on the operating table. It was a risk I decided to take and it's made a big difference to me and I am looking forward to the summer and being able to wear shorts! I chose this clinic as it was recommended and I could only find good reviews. I went to London and met Dr Oelbrandt and his PA Tahira, both are very professional and respond to any queries. I found my first appointment with Dr Oelbrandt very difficult as he was brutal about me needing to lose some more weight before the operation, but at least he didn't discount it completely because I'm not a bmi 25! Although it was a difficult first meeting I knew that I wanted him to do the operation and trusted him. I'm very glad that I did as it wasn't the easiest operation and he had to fix 3 small hernias whilst performing the tummy tuck. The results are phenomenal and I was definitely right to trust him.

"Didn't want to look different just wanted my eye bags gone"
100%Reviewed 20 Nov 2015 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Blepharoplasty, Eyelid surgery
At 45 years old, I have had lower eye bags for 10 years, which I could not solve with face cream or early nights. This was my first time considering plastic surgery, so I was a nervous candidate. A friend from UK recommended Dr Oelbrandt to me. Before the procedure I had two consultations with him. (I live in Belgium). I explained that I didn't want to look 'really different', I just wanted my lower eye bags gone. Dr Oelbrandt is passionate about his profession, he listened to my concerns and gave me personalised, honest and realistic advice/answers. The procedure lasted 1 hour, I did not need painkillers afterwards, just lots of rest during the healing process (10-12 days). I'm very glad that I chose Dr Oelbrandt. It's a relief to wake up in the morning looking fresh.

Singelberg Clinic is quiet, clean and easily accessible by train from Brussels. I wanted a discreet place and it was very discreet. Dr Oelbrandt met me at reception. Confidentiality was respected at all times.
