Vaser Surgeon & GP
GMC No: 6050945
Dr Riaan Vlok qualified at the University of Pretoria initially with an MBChB (Baccalareus in Medicine and Surgery) followed by a Master’s degree in Family Medicine. Afterwards he successfully completed Diploma in Occupational Health and Medicine. He is registered as a specialist in family medicine with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (MP 0213624) and also as a General Practitioner in the United Kingdom since 2002.
He is an experienced clinician who has had extensive training and hands on experience in general surgery, ear nose and throat-, skin- and gynaecological surgery gained at the Wynberg Hospital in Cape Town and subsequently in private practice in rural South Africa.
The most dramatic of the treatments that Dr Vlok provides is the art of liposculpting through VASER ® technology and ear fold. He has been trained in the latest body sculpting techniques at the renowned International Centre of Bodysculpting, Bogota, Columbia. He is also skilled in dermal filler injection, wrinkle reduction injection, skin surgery, Obagi ®chemical peels, Bodytite ® liposuction, IPL/ NdYag skin rejuvenation, and CO2 laser skin treatments.
He spends a month at a time working as in UK and returns home for a fortnight’s holiday every four weeks. He enjoys the contrast of British life with that on his ranch near Pretoria, where he lives with his wife and son. He firmly believes that the qualifications of the practitioner do not necessarily predict the aesthetic outcome but the insight and understanding of proportions and contours, a natural flair for the aesthetics are more important to ensure an optimal treatment result.
