Dr Van der Velde’s believes in open and honest communication between himself and the patient. He respects the confidentiality and takes care to understand the individual’s needs. This way he can tailor a personalised program and manage expectations.

Dr van der Velde has outstanding surgical technique and his results compare to the best in the world.

He says, “I am wary of any ‘fantastic new procedure! And, until surgical science and time have proven the procedure worthy, I don’t cut corners to cut cost”.

He adds, “I always work with highly professional anesthesiologists in approved operating theatres. And, I often consult with my network of plastic surgeon colleagues on problem cases. This ensures the best treatment and clinical outcome”.
