About

Bio

Becoming a Cosmetic Plastic surgeon is the natural evolution of my background, interests, aptitudes and enthusiasm. My career goal is to become a well-trained Cosmetic and plastic surgeon, capable of excellence in both clinical patient care and Clinical research that can advance Medical Science. I was born and raised in South Africa, and was inspired from an early age by my parents' careers as an architect and art historian. I was drawn to the health sciences and entered medical school. I soon became interested in a surgical career and was drawn to plastic surgery because of its diversity, intellectual challenges and technical demands. I was also fascinated in the artistry and design elements of the specialty.
