All You Need to Know
Dr Vlok completed his studies at the prestigious University of Pretoria in South Africa. At the time the training standards were supreme and trainees from our medical school were very sought after. Subsequently many members of our class were recruited and are now spread out over the world. I have had the pleasure and feel extremely fortunate to have identified a profession that helps my patients look and feel better. I have a special interest in liposuction strongly focussed on liposculpting of the chin, the male chest and ankles.
Experience You Can Trust
ACTING CHIEF OF THE DEPARTMENT OF SURGERY AT THE WYNBERG ARMY HOSPITAL IN CAPE TOWN
Senior Medical Officer in charge of the Surgical Unit of the Military Hospital. Extensive experience in most aspects of surgery including Plastics, General General Surgery, Urology and upper gastrointestinal endoscopy. Privileged to attend two sessions per week learning upper GI endoscopy at the Groote Schuur hospital at the University of Cape Town. This is the hospital is where Prof Christiaan Barnard did the first ever human heart transplant. Dr Vlok wasn't as brave as the professor but training by another eminent professor by the name of IN Marks helped Dr Vlok establish the first ever endoscopic service at his hospital.
PRINCIPAL CLINICIAN IN A LARGE PRIVATE PRACTICE IN RURAL AFRICA
A steep learning curve consisted of full time exposure to all facets of clinical medicine. This included planned obstetrics, gynaecological surgery, general surgery, ENT surgery, Accident and Emergency. A firm base was set with extensive surgical experience over more than a decade.
NHS AND COSMETIC SURGERY
Working in the NHS helped Dr Vlok continue with a holistic approach to his patients by not just seeing the aesthetic artistic side but also understanding their whole being. Training in Pretoria South Africa, Bogota Colombia and London Harley Street set a pace in becoming one of the busiest liposuction practitioners in the UK. An ongoing association with MYA Cosmetic Surgery, The Private Clinic of Harley Street, The Chiltern Medical Clinic, Courthouse Clinics and his own clinic in Nottinghamshire helps to keep on top of developments in his fields of expertise.

Quick safe treatment for prominent ears
The The Earfold procedure is among our most popular at The NRC, as well as being one of the most intricate. I’ve always told my patients that plastic surgery, and specifically aesthetic surgery, is still very much surgery, and as such, should be treated absolutely seriously, and not undertaken lightly. Read on to discover the benefits and possible side effects of the Earfold Procedure.
Earfold pinning for prominent ears is a beautiful procedure due to quick recovery, minimal down time without the need for unsightly dressings. The procedure is done under local anaesthetic.
Skin lesion surgery
Look Your Best
Removal of unwanted skin lesions, especially affecting the faces can be life changing. Our foremost purpose the Nottingham Road Clinic is to perform safe procedures, and we make it our business to take care of all pre-surgery and post-surgery proceedings in order to ensure a safe recovery and a successful post-surgery outcome for each patient. Lesions of the skin with suspicious characteristics are always sent off for analysis.
Refined results, smooth and safe
This procedure, like all others we perform the NRC, is still a surgical procedure, and inherently demands a high level of responsibility, ethics, and knowledge from the entire surgical team. We’re in the business of delivering high quality results and highly satisfied patients who will go on to lead a better and more confident life after their Liposuction. Liposuction/sculpting requires a very specific flair for art and a full understanding of the human anatomy
“I recommend getting any surgical procedure done with Dr Vlok at the Nottingham Road Clinic. Everyone at the clinic was extremely ethical and professional. I can’t say enough good things about the whole experience.”
