Traveling Patients

We assist patients all around the world. Our staff is available to assist you on the aesthetic procedure best suited for your needs with an initial online consultation, and with all your travel arrangements!

The DW team is available 24 hours to assist during your stay in South Africa. Our Patient Concierge will guide you on everything you may need, from transportation to and from Fourways Life Hospital to the Lodge, to a private nurse to attend to you right in your hotel room. Our accommodation is specifically selected for you and your experience – a serene place to recover after surgery, in luxury and style.

How to get the Process Started

E-mail the procedure(s) you are interested in and digital photographs of the surgical area(s).
The photos should include a front view, right side view, and left side view. You will also need to download our New Patient Forms print them, fill them out, and email them to our office (
Upon receiving your information and photos, Dr. Weyers will review them.
Our Surgery Coordinator will be in touch with you to discuss your options via e-mail or telephone.
At this time, we will also be able to give you a surgical cost estimate for your procedure(s). Our office provides plastic surgery financing options for our patients and we would be happy to review these with you.

Once the surgery date has been determined, a R15 000 non-refundable deposit is required to reserve the date. (This will apply toward your surgical costs, but will not be refunded if you cancel). A pre-op physical examination will need to be performed by your family Doctor approximately 2 weeks before your surgery. Payment is due in full 2 weeks prior to surgery.

All details have to be agreed upon before you arrive for your complimentary consultation so that the surgeon has everything he needs for your surgery the next day.
When you arrive, Dr. Weyers will perform a thorough examination and discuss everything in great detail with you. If at the time of your visit Dr. Weyers decides that you would not be a good candidate for the surgery, your payment will be returned to you and surgery will not be performed.

Dr. Weyers strongly recommends that patients stay in the Johannesburg area for a minimum of 5-7 days after surgery. (Different procedures require different lengths of time for recovery and we can discuss your specific situation when the time comes). Our office staff will work with you to get your post-op visits scheduled.


You will need someone to care for you for at least 24 hours after surgery. If you do not have a caretaker, we can provide you with home health care information. (This service would be an added expense for you).
