FACIAL PLASTIC SURGERY
Facial plastic surgery reshapes the face, eyelids, nose, ears, chin, cheekbones, and neckline. This includes a range of facial cosmetic procedures to recreate or restore facial harmony, symmetry and a youthful appearance. e.g., facelift, nose job, neck lift, eyelid restoration surgery
BODY PLASTIC SURGERY
The restoration or alteration of the human body is referred to as body plastic surgery. Procedures done to create harmony and symmetry include body contouring, tummy tuck, liposuction and limb contouring.
Reconstructive surgery aims to repair and restore function and aesthetics in areas of the body that have been deformed. These defects commonly arise from developmental abnormalities or damage caused by cancer, traumatic injury or infection.
Lymphedema Surgery refers to a variety of methods used to treat patients with lymphedema. Lymphatic system abnormalities could be due to developmental disorders (primary lymphedema) or damage that occur most commonly due to cancer, trauma, surgery or infections(secondary lymphedema).
SKIN CANCER EXCISION AND RECONSTRUCTION
Skin cancer excision is the surgical removal of cancerous skin cells as well as some healthy skin tissue surrounding them. Reconstructive surgery can replace and reconstruct the resected skin and underlying soft tissue components affected by cancer.
DON'T ONLY PRACTISE YOUR ART BUT FORCE YOUR WAY INTO ITS SECRETS; ART DESERVES THAT.
Dr Moodie knew that he wanted to become a surgeon from the onset of his medical school training at the University of Pretoria, finding the opportunity to repair the human body extraordinary.
His logo, which you see on this website, was inspired by a sculpture by Reghardt van der Meulen “Fragmented“.
