My Husband and I was very excited for our first child and could not wait for her arrival I think we where just so impatient that she came a month before the time lol
We had no idea that she would be born with a bilateral cleft lip and palate however as any parent expecting their first child we celebrated her no matter her physical appearance we loved her immensely and accepted her right away at the time when she was born we had no idea what a cleft was and never saw any child with it however we immediately started doing research and educating ourselves about it we didn’t know who was going to help us with the process of the series of operations and didn’t know how much it will cost
Brooklyn was in NICU at Net Care Garden City since she was a premature baby and had to be in there for a while
One morning I came to express milk for my baby girl and the nurse told me Dr Mia came to see my baby and I remember her words very clearly you are in good hands he is the best Dr and does the best work she has ever seen she called him the celebrity Dr and I couldn’t wait to meet this Dr all Fear and anxiety had left me and I honestly just began to trust the process before it even began
Dr Mia and his team has truly been a blessing to me and my husband we had a few ups and downs but I honestly don’t know what we have done without his help and that of his team he is caring compassionate and truly amazing to us our journey is still continuing as Brooklyn’s palate still needs to closed and I have full confidence in Dr Mia and his team God has blessed us with him
I also want to thank him from the bottom my heart for walking this journey with us and thank for not giving up on us

Breast Reduction & Liposuction
Extremely Satisfied Patient
“There I was a single, 30-something year old, young woman battling to look at myself in the mirror. I had a bad body image and my self-esteem was at its lowest. I needed to do something so I embarked on a journey towards good health. After losing weight I was still not entirely satisfied with my body. I decided to go the cosmetic route. There are some things that cannot be changed no matter how hard you try. My huge sagging breasts were one of those things. I was not looking to be the next supermodel. All I wanted was for me to fully embrace my body. While doing my research one familiar name kept popping up: Dr SMR Mia, a plastic and reconstructive surgeon whose work is well known by many. However, I had to wonder whether he was really as good as I had imagined him to be.
Yes! He is!!! This I can now say without any hesitation. My first consultation went extremely well. His staff members were warm, efficient, and very knowledgeable. Dr Mia, along with his pleasant demeanour, warmly welcomed me. He listened attentively as I related my story and he made me feel comfortable. After hearing my concerns, he explained how important diet and exercise are and that liposuction is merely used to enhance the body shape. He then performed an examination. Both liposuction and breast reduction procedures were explained in detail and I was given reading material to take home so that I could make an informed decision.
I was nervous about undergoing surgery, but Dr Mia assured me that everything would be fine and that I was going to be well taken care of. My surgery went off smoothly and Dr Mia did an amazing job. His bedside manner, passion and gentle nature makes the surgical experience so much easier for the patient. I am extremely pleased with the results. I now have a good shape with minimal bruising and my breasts are firm and beautifully in proportion.
I highly recommend DR SMR Mia for any plastic or reconstructive surgery. Dr Mia is my surgeon of choice.”
“I am forever grateful!”
“Owing to my body rejecting my previous implants, leaving me with unsightly scars and breasts far worse than before the surgery, I was very apprehensive about the entire procedure. However, your professional, caring, and gentle approach gave me confidence in your abilities right from my first appointment. I can honestly say that my experience with you was nothing like my previous experience. I am delighted that I finally took the step to re-do my implants, but most of all I’m thrilled that I chose you to do the procedure. Your reputation is well deserved. I cannot begin to thank you enough for giving me back my confidence and allowing me to feel attractive. I believe that you have a gifted touch and no patient leaves without their life having been changed in one way or another.”
Liposuction & Abdominoplasty
“I love the end result!”
“After having three lovely children, my body felt as if it had been through its share of wear and tear. My tummy was resistant to any form of exercise, and despite efforts at dieting I was stuck at a healthy 84kgs. Oftentimes it’s easier to accept life as it happens than to try changing it and I was beginning to find that I was just too busy to have to worry about myself day in and day out.
One day I looked in the mirror and I decided that I wanted more than that, I wanted my body back. After consulting with Dr Mia, I decided to have a tummy tuck and liposuction. I was scheduled for theatre soon thereafter. I arrived at Sandton Mediclinic on the day, filled in the necessary forms, and settled down in my room. After the procedure I went back to my room; my pain was well managed and the ward staff were very caring. I spent the night in the ward and was discharged the following morning with two drains, which were more uncomfortable than painful. I started mobilising slowly over the next couple of days. I was also on a strict diet and I found that my appetite was suppressed. The weight came off quickly and I lost 13kgs in the first month after the operation. I followed up with Dr Mia every week and the drains came out after only two weeks.
I would like to thank Dr Mia and his colleagues for the amazing work they did. They were always professional and pleasant, and they made the experience much less daunting than I expected.
