Hit TV plastic surgeon heads back to SA

2011-07-16 16:53

Brazilian plastic surgeon Dr Robert Rey is in the country again, and this time he is looking to give away free operations to South Africans.

Rey (49), of reality TV show Dr 90210 fame, jetted into the country on Monday. This was after much demand for plastic surgery consultations from locals after his visit last year, when he launched his cosmetics range Sensual Solutions.

Rey admitted to loving South African women’s body shapes, but wanted to help those who wanted to change whatever they didn’t like.

“When you look at someone you will think they have a beautiful body until you speak to them, and find out that they are not entirely happy with something about their body.

“Most African women I have seen are looking into getting breast implants, liposuction around their hip and butt areas.

“Although I find that sexy about them, not all of them love that about their bodies,” he said.

With the help of South African general practitioner Dr Reza Mia and Mia’s brother Ridwaan, who is a plastic surgeon, Rey will be shooting a South African version of Dr 90210 and they are looking for people who are willing to be part of the show.

“We are doing free surgeries for the show, but the people we choose have to be comfortable with being filmed and shown on television naked.

“They don’t have to pay for anything, it’s all free,” said Rey.

The three doctors are also searching for a network that will buy the content. They have said they are “in talks with several TV stations abroad but also hoping to speak to some local channels”.

Those interested in having the surgery should send an email to carmen@houseofrey.com.

In the email, they must motivate why they need the surgery, if they have medical aid, their age and attach a clothed picture of themselves.
