Mr. William Van Niekerk is a consultant plastic, reconstructive, aesthetic, and burn surgeon with over 20 years of medical experience. He was born in Africa to a violinist and a world-renowned wine connoisseur, and was educated in Pretoria, Oxford, London, Glasgow, and Texas. He undertook his plastic surgical specialist training in two of the busiest and most reputable plastic surgery centres in Europe, and his subspecialty expertise includes cosmetic surgery, burn surgery, reconstructive microsurgery, and major trauma surgery.

Mr Van Niekerk served as officer in the Royal Air Force for 14 years, and was one of the handful of Armed Forces surgeons responsible for treating all British service personnel as part of the Royal Centre for Defence Medicine – initially at Selly Oak Hospital and later the New Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham. In support of the recent campaign in Afghanistan, Wing Commander Van Niekerk deployed to the field hospital in Camp Bastion (in the Helmand province) in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013.

Within the subspecialty of cosmetic surgery, Mr Van Niekerk’s specific focus lies with the following areas:

  • All aspects of cosmetic breast surgery, including breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast lift, correction of breast asymmetry, correction of tuberous breasts, nipple and areola reduction, correction of inverted nipples, and correction of gynecomastia in men;
  • Cosmetic surgery of the trunk and limbs, including abdominoplasty, mini abdominoplasty, Brazilian abdominoplasty, Brazilian mini abdominoplasty, correction of split abdominal muscles, thigh lift, and arm lift;
  • Surgery after large weight loss, including body lift, buttock lift, arm lift, and thigh lift;
  • Body sculpting through liposuction and where applicable, fat transfer;
  • Female genital cosmetic surgery, including labiaplasty;
  • Facial cosmetic surgery, including blepharoplasty and otoplasty. 
  • A large part of Mr Van Niekerk’s current practice centres around the management of skin lesions, including the treatment of skin cancers and the revision of suboptimal scars. In this regard, he works closely with his dermatology colleagues to offer a bespoke and comprehensive service.

Mr Van Niekerk is the recipient of a number of awards including The Dooley Prize in Anatomy and twice won the University of Oxford Trinity College Graduate Prize. Mr Van Niekerk’s passion for perfection is reflected in his uncompromising results and his reputation amongst his peers and patients.
