A guide to plastic surgery regulations in South Africa
Organizations

The South African Ministry of Health holds overall responsibility for health directives and policy. The Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) is a politically independant body that organizes and regulates South Africa's professions, including its medical ones. A full register of Physicans qualified to practice in South Africa is maintained by the HPCSA.

The Association of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons of South Africa represents over 98% of registered plastic surgeons in South Africa. It has an address book to locate members. Many plastic surgeons are also registered with the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic surgeons and again details can be verified online.

Education

The basic medical degree takes 6 years. After this a doctor may become a Registrar within one of the specialties recognised by the HPCSA. Specialty training in Plastic Surgery takes a minimum of 4 addtional years of training as a Registrar.

There is an ethical and statutory obligation to engage in continuing education - referred to as Continuing Professional Development. The HPCSA monitors courses that award continuing education units (CEUs), a plastic surgeon has to maintain a balance of 60 CEUs in a 24 month period. Failure to do so will result in the suspension of the licence to practice.

In addition to these mandatory requirements the professional associations organize lectures and courses to enable their members to further enhance their surgical skills.

Complaints

An ombudsman deals with complaints regarding the medical profession. Findings of the ombudsman may be passed to disiplinary committees organized by the HPCSA. The committees have the power to censure, fine or suspend the right to practice.

Civil proceedings may also be persued and if diciplinary proceeding find behaviour that is criminal in nature they will pass the case to the civil courts.

Storage and Access to Medical Records

The HPCSA publishes guidelines for the storage of medical records - these reflect statutory requirements and the ethical values of the medical profession.

Medical records are generally stored for a minimum of 6 years though some conditions may require the indefinite storage of information. The National Health Act states that all patients have a right to confidentiality - It is the responsibility of the physican to ensure the safety of their patients records.

Additionally the Health Act and the ethical responsiblities of the physican guarrantee a patients access to their medical records and copies of scans, x-rays etc... at a resonable cost.

Dr. Dirk Lazarus - Plastic Surgeon

087 551 7578 86 New Church Street, Tamboerskloof, Cape Town, 8001
Rating from 3 Reviews I don't feel embarrassed taking off my top anymore, happier than ever thanks to GynecomastiaNoel, Cape Town, 13 Sep 16

Dr Lazarus and his team are awesome, never felt uncomfortable they gave me all the info I needed and my op has completely changed my life. Would recommend 20/10, don't feel embarrassed taking off my top anymore, happier than ever. Thanks Dr L

Plastic Surgeon Consultation SAR1200  -  SAR1201
New cosmetic patients will receive as much time as is required so that you are fully informed prior to surgery, all your questions answered and you feel at ease about your surgery and the follow up. Aside from time with Dr. Lazarus you will also have an opportunity to talk to Danni, our practice sister who is very familiar with all the procedures we do, what the surgery entails, the recovery, the possible complications and the outcome.
Breast Implants SAR50000  -  SAR55000
Breast augmentation with implants is done to increase the size of your breasts. My default method involves an incision in the crease underneath the breasts and placement of implants in a sub-glandular position above the muscle. I may vary from this if your anatomy determines that another approach would be better.  I use silicone gel filled implants (textured surface, cohesive silicone gel), usually round and sized with you so that you can determine what you want. Surgery is performed in my own facility under sedation and local anaesthesia. Recovery is quick and you will be discharged on the same day as surgery. Normal activities can be resumed within a week or two of surgery. Patients not from Cape Town should stay in Cape Town about 12 days or more to allow for a pre-operative consultation, surgery, recovery and check ups. 
Tummy Tuck SAR70000  -  SAR100000
A variety of tummy operations exist, including full tummy tuck, mini tummy tuck and lipo alone. I will determine the best option for you at consultation. Most surgery is carried out in my own facility as day case surgery.

Dr C Shaw

30 Camelford Rd, New Redruth, Alberton
Rating from 7 Reviews Enhanced my self-image and self-confidenceCatherine, South Africa, 04 Nov 15

I had breast lift done as well as breast implants. Dr Shaw advised on what would work best for my body and he done an amazing job. The operation enhanced my self-image and self-confidence so much. I would recommend Dr Shaw to anyone, he is a very talented doctor and always makes you feel relaxed and comfortable. I have scoliosis, so the abnormal lateral curvature of the spine caused my breast to develop uneven, my one nipple was 5cm lower than my other one. Also over the years I had gained and lost some weight causing stretch marks and sagging of breasts. I just felt at 27 years of age to have breasts that were full of stretch marks, uneven and saggy was embarrassing and made me feel very insecure about myself. The best parts was of course the end result. But other than that, i would say the way Dr Shaw and his staff treated me was great. I likes His clinic was amazing, it's actually enjoyable to be there, because it feels so comfortable but still has a very modern edge to it. I also liked Dr Shaws honest and informative approach. The fact that he was very honest and told me what he could and could not do. In my case he had told me that i would need more than one surgery as it was more reconstructive surgery rather than just a normal breast enlargement or lift that i needed to have done. It ended up that i needed to have 3 operations done in one year to get my breasts looking the way we had planned.The worst part was probably the pain of the three operations. And with every operation the disappointment that there had to be a next one, but he had told me that perhaps we will be very lucky and i will only need one operation, but every time improvements could be done that could not have been foreseen with the previous op." Dr Shaw's operating rooms are clean and modern but have a very comfortable feel about it. You are well looked after before and after the surgery, Dr Shaw and nurses are around all the time to keep you comfortable and assist if needed. "As Dr Shaw told me, ""don't do it for other people, do it for yourself and if you not doing it for yourself, then you should not be considering doing this"" I think this is very true because you might end up resenting a partner sending you because he likes big breast and perhaps you don't. -So do it for yourself. And know that things do and can go wrong, as Dr Shaw explained to me, you could lose a nipple, you might get very bad infection, your body could reject the saline implants, there are so many risks and you need to know them to be able to make an informed decision so that you can not blame the doctor or anyone else if there are complications like these that happen. So make sure you very well informed on everything that could possibly go wrong. You need to remember that doctors can also not foresee what will go wrong on an operating table or how your body will react after the surgery, it's a risk- it's always a risk and you need to take responsibility.." I paid more than most people would for my breasts but Dr Shaw is one of the more expensive plastic/reconstructive surgeons but he is also one of the best. I think when you do something that is literally changing you, your body, you can not try and take short cuts by going to the cheapest doctor. If you want to do that then rather don't have surgery done, because i do think-and have seen, that you get what you pay for. I paid a lot but I also have a great end result to show for it.

“Having to go for any medical procedure can be a bad experience with the wrong institution, fortunately, when you are exposed to quality service as I was when I went to Vive Cosmetic Surgery, you do not need to have such concerns. My experience with them was rather favorable. Their treatment was very good. The clinic was extremely clean, they charged me accordingly and the staff was very friendly and accommodative.

Dr Rodney Robson

087 550 3622 ext: 81041 At Mediclinic Morningside, Suite 202, 173 Rivonia Street, Morningside, 2057
Rating from 3 Reviews Thrilled with Rhinoplasty resultsSammy, JOHANNESBURG, 11 Oct 15

I had a Rhinoplasty done - It's something I'd wanted to do as a teen so after a lot of thinking and preparing I applied for finance (did not save over the years) and once finance was approved I had nothing left holding me back. I thought the hardest first steps of getting the procedure done was finding the cash but once that was approved, I had to find a surgeon - which is the biggest deal, and what clinic helped immensely with that. I contacted Dr Robson about a Rhinoplasty and was given a quote within 2 hours. Both Dr Robson and Cecile have made the the process of going for a cosmetic procedure an awesome experience. I am so thrilled with the results and could not have found a better Doctor. Would absolutely recommend Dr Robson! I had my op at the Intercare Day Clinic and all staff were so friendly and helpful. Had a wonderful anesthesiologist (Dr Oetlee?) and Dr Robson came to check on me the morning after the procedure. The whole process of using WhatClinic made everything very easy. The worst part was probably not knowing where to start in finding the right surgeon and not knowing what the result of the procedure would be. The best part was getting such a speedy reply from Dr Robson's offices (+- 2 hours) & meeting the Dr (he instantly made me feel comfortable and at ease). Everything was readied and prepared for me, all I had to do was show up on the day of the op. Definitely think long and hard before getting a procedure done. I truly think that it took me so long to finally decide on getting this done but once I had met Dr Robson I was sure I'd found the right fit for me. Look at lots of before and after pictures but be realistic with how you see the outcome of your procedure. Ask your surgeon lots of questions - even the ones you think are silly! In the enquiry I did through WhatClinic I said how much I had been approved through my finance institution and in my reply from the Dr's offices I received a quotation amount - R35 000.00. This price included the procedure, overnight in clinic, and follow up visits etc. The only additional fee was the very first consultation fee which was communicated to me when I phoned to book my first consultation.

I had a consultation with Dr Chris van der Walt. Such a fabulous doctor who made me feel so at ease. He explains everything so well and is very open and friendly. I now feel comfortable and relaxed about the upcoming procedure instead of nervous. A cyst developed on my upper lip from an accident and having it stitched up in Bloemfontein, which Dr van Der Walt now has to cut out. Very comfortable.

Rating from 4 Reviews I had breast implants done by Dr. Lovric a year ago, I can really recommend the procedureRonel, Cape Town, 14 Sep 16

The quality of service and professionalism I received from the doctor and his secretary, is more than words can explain. It is now more than a year later and I am still loving my breasts. It was totally worth every penny I spent on this procedure. My only regret is, I didn't have it done sooner. My experience overall is one of satisfaction all round. Thank Dr Lovric, for changing my body appearance and self esteem.

Dr Lionel Jedeikin Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgeon

087 550 3622 ext: 64709 Alchimia Clinic, 2nd Floor, 39 Kloof Street, Gardens, 8001
Rating from 5 Reviews I have honestly been impressedPatricia, South Africa, 18 May 17

I love my new and improved breasts. I was happy with my initial size C, but I just hated their saggy / droopy appearance, and I wanted a more rounded and lifted look. This would have been difficult without implants. Dr. Jedeikin was so helpful, professional and explained everything in a way that I could understand (which included physical examinations and pictures of before and after). He was very comforting throughout the process. I ended up going for a breast augmentation with a lift and silicone implants (over the muscle). It has been 3 months now, and I have honestly been impressed right after the surgery. Each day they continued to take better shape and feel. I am now a fuller and perky C with no loss of sensation to my nipples. There is scarring with this procedure, but this is fading more and more every day. I was really anxious the day of the surgery, as one does hear horror stories. I would do it again without question and recommend it to anyone who is thinking about it. There is no actual pain just some soreness. I was up and going within a day or two afterwards, and the soreness went away before I knew it. It’s all definitely worth the results! I chose this clinic mainly for Dr. Jedeikin's reviews, but all the staff were so helpful, kind and the clinic is immaculate with a zen feel! I would also recommend the recovery retreat. It is so peaceful, comfortable and my nurse was honestly the best - such a sweet lady! Thank you for everything!

Plastic Surgeon Consultation From SAR500
Consultation inclusive of description of procedure, photography and reading information.
Breast Implants From SAR425000
Depending on the type and configuration of the breast, I either insert the implant beneath the muscle (pectoralis) or above the muscle.I always use Silicone implants. I place the incision within the fold of the breast and from time to time will make the incision around the nipple areola but this is not my foremost approach. Results are natural and size is determined at the time of consult taking patient requests into consideration and depending on what the body proportions allow. It is a very common surgery performed in my practice. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Breast augmentation is a relatively simple surgical procedure performed to create aesthetically pleasing breasts.    Silicone or saline breast implants, whichfeel similar to soft breast tissue, are inserted beneath the glandular tissueof the breast.    This operation can bedone to increase breast size, to redefine the breasts after childbirth, or torecreate symmetry after a mastectomy.The following questions are often asked about breast augmentation;  the durability of breast implants, theirsafety and their long-term effect on health. What are breastimplants like and are they safe? Each prosthesis is a soft outer shell of silicone filled with eithersilicone gel or a saline  (salt)solution.    The shell may be lightlytextured or smooth.   In my experience,saline implants do not feel as natural as those filled with silicone and thereis a tendency for them to leak over time.   The choice of implant would be discussed beforehand. There is noevidence, based on current knowledge, that silicone implants are detrimental tohealth.    Millions of breastenlargements have been safely performed worldwide since 1962 and only a smallpercentage of these have caused problems.
Rhinoplasty From SAR50000
Rhinoplasty,  or surgery to reshape the nose is a plastic surgery procedure.     Rhinoplasty can reduce or increase the size of your nose, change the shape of the tip or the bridge, narrow the div of the nostrils, or change the angle between your nose and your upper lip.     It may also correct a birth defect or injury, or help relieve some breathing problems. If you are considering Rhinoplasty, this information will give you a basic understanding of the procedure – when it can help, how it is performed, and what results you can expect.   It cannot answer all of your questions, since a lot depends on the individual patient.    Please ask Dr. Jedeikin about anything you do not understand. The Best Candidates for Rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence, but it will not necessarily change your looks to match your ideal, or cause other people to treat you differently. Before you decide to have surgery, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them with Dr. Jedeikin. The best candidates for Rhinoplasty are people who are looking for improvement, not perfection, in the way they look.   If you are physically healthy, psychologically stable and realistic in your expectations, you may be a good candidate. Age may also be a consideration.    Many surgeons prefer not to operate on teenagers until they have completed their growth spurt – around 14 or 15 for girls a bit later for boys.   It is important to consider teenager’s social and emotional adjustment, too, and to make sure its what they, and not what their parents really want. All Surgery Carries Some Uncertainty And Risk. When Rhinoplasty is performed by a qualified plastic surgeon,complications are infrequent and usually minor.

Plastic Surgeon Consultation  
Breast Implants  
Breast Augmentation surgery has many variables. Such as the type of implant used (silicone vs. saline, round vs. anatomical shape), incision placement (in the crease under the breast, in the armpit, or under the areola) and implant placement either outside or beneath the pectoralis major muscle of the chest.
Liposuction  
Liposuction is simply the procedure whereby body fat is removed though suction to give a desired body contour. It is a very popular and safe procedure for removing stubborn body fat which is resistant to diet and exercise (most often the tummy, saddlebags, thighs and neck).
