5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift

My cosmetic surgery prejudice has dissolved entirely, thanks to Dr Lazarus and his exceptional team!

I have always been aware of my deep desire to have more "normal" looking breasts but never really understood the nature of my condition. After a consultation with Dr Lazarus everything made more sense to me - I had been suffering with a tuberous breast deformity since puberty and cosmetic surgery was the treatment of choice. Despite knowing the facts about my condition, I still felt somewhat...

BEST EXPERIENCE- 27 yrs, Female, CT Local, 7 star treatment

Being a little nervous for my procedure prior to surgery, I resulted in feeling very safe in the hands of Dr Lazarus and his team, who are by far the most attentive medical practitioners that I have ever experienced. From the moment you walk into his practice, you feel as though you are at home. From my consultation period, right through to the follow up consultations post surgery, the...

67 Year Old Tired of Looking Tired, Grumpy and Old - Cape Town

I have always been a skin fanatic - protecting my skin and using sunscreens and moisturizers since I was 18. However, at 67, the acceleration in aging was becoming alarming. My husband and I recently emmigrated to South Africa where cosmetic surgery is not only cutting edge, it is way cheaper. I consulted my GP first, and he recommended a Cape Town doctor who specialises in facelifts. My...

Breast Augmentation, Happier Than Ever! - South Africa, ZA

Hi everyone. I would like to share with you my wonderful breast augmentation experience. I'm a international model based in Europe and the states, so my body, especially my breasts is at utmost importance to me. Before the surgery I was a AA cup, and I explained to doctor Lazerus that I'm desiring to be a full B cup. Not any larger. And also ladies, as we all want them looking "as natural as...

5 out of 5 stars Scar Removal

38years Old Scar Removal. South Africa, ZA

I had the scar since I was 4/5. Humiliated numerous times because it's in the middle of my face. Was hiding it with my hair. Finally had the courage and money to go for the treatment. I'm not sorry I went. Very satisfied with the outcome. I feel like I can look people in the eyes now. I don't have anything to hide anymore. I have a new scar now, but it's better looking and I can cover it...
