Healing well after two weeksBev, Cape Town, 18 09 15

Blepharoplasty two weeks ago. Booked in on Monday morning at 8.30 and was in theatre by 9. The whole experience was seamless and professional and not at all painful. Dr Meintjes is wonderful. He keeps his patient informed throughout and at no time did I ever feel apprehensive or insecure. Two weeks later, I have healed well, and I have a follow up visit after a month. So far, so good. What an awesome clinic with fun friendly professional staff and a fantastic environment. The clinic is easily accessible. You don't have to fight traffic or hunt for parking. It's a converted large Victorian house with all the olde worlde charm but modern medical facilities. The staff make you feel at home and at ease immediately and the surgeon, Dr Meintjes is approachable, friendly and extremely thorough.
