About Us

The Academy of Plastic Surgery

was founded in 2008. The reason for its name is that the doctors working here all work at the University of Cape Town, teaching and training future plastic surgeons.


The Academy of Plastic Surgery offers you the most up-to-date techniques in both cosmetic, aesthetic, and reconstructive surgery. Not only will you have access to a team of the leading plastic surgeons in the country, but you will be able to have your treatment individualised to offer you the best results for your specific needs and budget.

The risks and benefi ts of each individual option will be discussed in detail with you so you can have your procedure and be comfortable in the knowledge that the right thing is being done in the safest way possible.
