Dear Nia
I don't know of specific doctors but I am sure that if you phone one of the big private hospitals near you they will be able to tell you if there is a surgeon working in the hospital that does these procedures?
Try Dr Hannes Basson at Sunninghill?
Just do your homework before you jump into this - it is risky and do have side effects.
