Extreme Makeover Part 1 - Johannesburg, South Africa

If you are proportioned like Sophia Loren and you gain a few kilos you look curvy. I just look like a barfly with a beer belly. Or pregnant. Even when I was really thin I still had a belly and double chin. I am not overweight (BMI of 24) and I... READ MORE

Extreme Makeover Part 2 - Pretoria, South Africa

I waited a few months for my first rhino date - which got cancelled, and I have now tentatively booked for September with a different surgeon. I also find myself going back and forth over whether I should really do this. I was totally... READ COMMENT

Just saw your before & after pics - they look really great. I think your surgeon did a really good job - nicely contoured and still looks natural. READ COMMENT

I'm ok thanks. Just really pissed off because I wanted to get the rhino and lipo done close together so as to only take leave from work once. Now that plan is wrecked. I booked in May. READ COMMENT
