Dr Nicolette Landman - Plastic Surgeon in Gauteng

Dr Nicolette Landman

“It was an easy decision when I had to choose my speciality – I knew I would choose surgery because its manual and I need to work with my hands. My interest in Plastic Surgery was sparked when I was a six-year medical student. I have found Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery to be the most diverse surgical speciality. One has to be able to work on every part of the body and deal with an age range from the little new-borns to elderly patients. 

It is a speciality that ties surgical and artistic skill together and utilises one’s appreciation for form and function. This is applicable to reconstructive as well as cosmetic surgery.”

Dr Nicolette Landman matriculated from Sentraal High School in Bloemfontein as their Dux scholar. She was the student with the highest academic marks in the Free State when she matriculated in 1994.

In 2000 she obtained her MBChB degree Cum Laude from the University of the Free State. She received the Dean’s Award for the overall best medical student during the six-year training period. During her studies, she received a multitude of other awards, ranging from individual subject awards to yearly best medical student.

After working abroad she returned to train as a General Surgeon at Grootte Schuur hospital and the University of Cape Town. She completed her FCS (SA) examination and became a Fellow of the College of Surgeons of South Africa. She then trained as a Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon at the University of Pretoria. She passed her FC (Plastic Surgery) SA examination and became a Fellow of the College of Plastic Surgeons of South Africa.

Currently Dr Nicolette is practicing as a plastic and reconstructive surgeon in Midstream, serving patients from Pretoria, Centurion, Midrand and Johannesburg, as well as the greater Gauteng area. Some of her loyal patients travel from all over South Africa to undergo surgery with her.
