We are very fortunate to have Dr Winkler as part of our plastic surgery team. She is one of a handful of female plastic surgeons practicing in South Africa, which gives her a unique understanding of women’s health and the female body. Since her undergraduate training – which included a lengthy tenure in a multi-disciplinary intensive care unit – she’s had a passion for plastic and reconstructive surgery. She specialises in cosmetic surgical procedures, such as breast augmentation, breast lifts, breast reductions, tummy tucks, liposuction and facial surgery. She also performs non-surgical procedures like Botox and fillers.

Dr Kleynhans has extensive experience in aesthetic surgery and a wide range of reconstructive surgery disciplines. He has been in private practice since 1988. He is well known in the field for his commitment to excellence in standards of surgical care, patient safety, confidentiality and ethics in medicine. Following two years as a plastic surgery consultant at Tygerberg hospital in Cape Town – and a six-month study tour to major plastic surgery centres in the USA, Canada and Europe – he settled in private practice in Pietermaritzburg, to pursue his interest in craniofacial surgery. Hereafter he concentrated on aesthetic surgery, breast reconstruction and general reconstructive plastic surgery. In 1997, the Rotary Foundation of Rotary International awarded him the Paul Harris fellowship in recognition for his service to the community in the craniofacial field.
