Feel so much more confident and feminine

5 50 Breast Lift • Paid: R 75000

I had a breast lift in June this year. Just needed to feel better about my body (47 years old, and needed a boost) Just had my 6 weeks follow up. I am ecstatic about the results. Feel so much more confident and feminine. I chose Dr Maresky because he comes highly recommended. He is super professional and friendly. Made me and my hubby feel so at ease. He explained everything in detail. He was there all the way and is available 24/7. Really affordable and absolutely worth it. Will trust him with my life.

5 50 Breast Lift

Dr Maresky is a brilliant plastic surgeon with an impressive amount of knowledge and experience. He has a fun, friendly, calming sense of humour which helped to calm my nerves. He made the entire process from the first consultation to the operation and follow up visits very comfortable and stress-free.

I am beyond happy with my results, Dr Maresky gave me my confidence back. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in Breast Augmentation.

He understood exactly what I wanted and guided me to the correct medical decisions

5 50 Plastic Surgeon Consultation

A doctor you can trust!

When you want to, or have to get Plastic Surgery done, it is rightfully a frightening concept to come to grips with. The internet is so full of bad examples and uncommon issues that arise from Plastic Surgery.

Needless to say, I went to see Dr Maresky in a state of complete nervousness. He made me feel at ease, with the procedure as well as with him as my Doctor. He understood exactly what I wanted and guided me to the correct medical decisions to attain the desired results. With which I am completely happy with.

Dr Maresky is a caring and thoughtful doctor that makes you laugh in a way that diffuse the awkwardness of standing naked in front of a complete stranger.

I would recommend him as a Plastic Surgeon to anyone that considering Plastic Surgery. He is a brilliant surgeon who has an impressive amount of experience and knowledge.

My confidence is fantastic and only 3 weeks post-op, I feel fantastic

5 50 Breast Implants, Liposuction

5-star treatment by a 5 star Surgeon! I travelled from Ireland to have both breast augmentation and liposuction with Dr Gideon Maresky and It was the best trip and decision ive ever made in my life. Travelling ofcourse I was aprehenisve however Dr Maresky made me feel very calm and at ease from beginning to end. He was the only surgeon to reply to my query, he was extremely informative and also a very genuine and down to earth person which made this experience so easy.

If anyone is thinking of any kind of surgery I cannot recommend Dr Maresky enough! He is a fantastic surgeon and person. My work is magic and its all so natural I still am me and look like me only a new and improved me and it feels so amazing. My confidence is fantastic and only 3 weeks post-op, I feel fantastic and already back training at my gym. Everyone involved in this experience was absolutely world class the nurses, his PA, the Anesthetist and ofcourse the Surgeon. I was swimming in the Sea one-week post-op, I enjoyed a lovely holiday post-op and I had the best sleep of my life during the operation.

I really want to say a huge thank you to Dr Maresky and his team you have improved my life. If I'm ever thinking of any surgery again I will most definetly travel 6000 miles to have the 5-star experience again.

My experience was phenomenal and I would highly recommend him, and his professional team

5 50 Full Abdominoplasty

I had an abdominoplasty done with Dr Maresky at the end of October. My experience from the first consultation, preoperative advice, operation and follow up communication and visits, was world class. He’s confidently skilful, trustworthy and professional with a “patient-first” focus. Dr Maresky has a very calming and friendly sense of humour which made my surgery, experience exceptionally easy and reassuring.

Although I was a bit anxious, he explained in detail what would happen at every step of the way as well as what to expect afterwards. ‘As true as bob’, even though every patient is different – what he explained would happen, actually happened. This was very comforting as I expected huge pain and distress but I only had minimal discomfort. He monitored me during healing stages and answered all WhatsApp ‘panic’ questions with solutions - even after business after hours.

My experience was phenomenal and I would highly recommend him, and his professional team! Now, as a ‘pie in the sky dream' if only he could only start practising dentistry, gynaecology, endocrinology and chiropractic therapy would make life so much easier!

Thank you, doctor, for a life-changing experience!

Phenomenal.

The staff made sure I was comfortable before we went ahead with anything

5 50 Breast Lift

I got the results I wanted from the breast lift I did with this doctor. Everyone was so welcoming and I felt comfortable with him. This procedure has improved my self-esteem. I had weekly follow-ups afterwards (the final one happened a month ago).

Everything took 4 hours to complete. The incisions are still healing right now, but they’ll fade with time. It was a nice clinic. Everything from reception to follow-up was great. The staff made sure I was comfortable before we went ahead with anything.

The doctor did an excellent job reassuring me

5 50 Tummy Tuck, Breast Implants

I’d been doing quite a lot of research, Dr Gideon was the first and only doctor to call me back. We talked through everything for half an hour and I chose him because he made me feel very comfortable.

I had a breast augmentation and tummy tuck done. They gave me a bit of a discount because I did both treatments at once. Afterwards, there was some discomfort, but I was given pain medication to help with this. I’ll be seeing the doctor next week again for a check-up.

The staff was very professional. It’s been a week since I had the work done, so things are still a bit sore and swollen. The surgery lasted 4 hours for both procedures. Downtime was two weeks. This kind of bodywork is very personal and often scary, but the doctor did an excellent job reassuring me. The highlight of my visit was how comfortable they made me feel. Happy with the results so far.

He took his time to explain, the whole procedure answered each and every question

5 50 Breast Reduction

I did a bilateral breast reduction.

What a superb doctor. Dr. Maresky is professional and friendly. From my first consultation just new that he is my doctor. He took his time to explain, the whole procedure answered each and every question. Shares the meaningful and easy read information abundantly.

This is before and after the procedure. He gives assurance, comfort and monitors you during healing stages. My experience was amazing and if I had to go and choose a doctor all over again I will choose him.

I am exceptionally happy with my experience

5 50 Breast Lift, Liposuction

I have always found my body rather uninspiring. So I decided to bite the bullet and have abdominal liposuction and a breast lift.

Gideon is absolutely amazing, friendly and such a professional. I would highly recommend him and he is the only doctor that I would ever recommend! I am exceptionally happy with my experience

If I need any other work done in the future, I’d choose them again

5 50 Liposuction

I went to Dr. Gideon for a leg tuck and liposuction. He was the only doctor who made contact with me. I would never have gone for the surgery if I didn’t feel completely comfortable with him and the clinic. It’s been three weeks since the procedures and I was only supposed to see the results sometime next week, but I can already see it now. Even other people have noticed the difference. If I knew the procedure would go this well, I’d have had the work done ages ago.

I really loved the clinic. It’ll take 6 -12 weeks before I see the full outcome, but I’m already very happy. The staff were all so helpful, and friendly. Everything was excellent. They were highly professional and eased my nerves every step of the way. I’d had procedures done elsewhere in the past, and I was not comfortable with that clinic at all. If I need any other work done in the future, I’d choose them again. I’d also recommend them to anyone.

I have never received or experienced such incredible service

5 50 Breast Reconstruction • Paid: R 55000

I had a breast augmentation two months ago. My first consultation with Dr. Maresky was incredibly detailed and full of necessary information. He made me feel extremely comfortable which was very important for me. Throughout the entire process, Dr. Maresky took his time and did not rush through anything.

I was informed of the amount of pain, how to handle it and what to expect however I was a rare case as I apparently experienced more pain than your average Joe.

When it came to the breast size I showed the doctor reference images and explained I wanted small breasts (from nothing to something) and wanted them to look natural and that is exactly what I got. I am so grateful for the personal approach of Dr. Maresky and the Christiaan Barnard hospital.

The Christiaan Barnard Hospital was unbelievable, I have never received or experienced such incredible service.
