Dr Cara graduated from UCT in 2010, and spent her 2 years of internship at the Pietermaritzburg Hospital Complex.  She returned to Cape Town in 2013 to complete her community service year in Khayelitsha, and remained at the Khayelitsha District Hospital as a locum in their Emergency Centre for 2014.  During this time, she also spent numerous hours assisting plastic surgeons in theatre, and discovered a passion for aesthetic medicine.  In order to pursue this, she decided to travel to London’s Harley Street for training in non-invasive aesthetic medical techniques.  On her return to Cape Town she completed further training courses and finally decided to join her father in his practice in Claremont offering non-invasive medical aesthetic procedures only.

Dr Cara is passionate about medical aesthetics, and keeps up to date with the latest techniques and technologies by attending both local and international congresses whenever her schedule allows.
