Dr Barlodien Kotzé ~ Medical Doctor
Dr Barlodien Kotzé obtained her Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (M.B.Ch.B.) at the University of Stellenbosch in 2001, and in 2010 completed her Diploma in Sedation and Pain Control.
From an early age, Barlodien always wanted to help people, and so medicine was the natural career choice. But, while studying she realised that aesthetics was also an art, and this spiked her passion further. She says, “I love seeing the joy on a patient’s face when they see the natural results that can be created. My aim with aesthetics is not to change my patients, but to make them feel like the best version of themselves. Only you can make yourself happy, so love who you are.”
Fittingly, Barlodien’s favourite quote is Dr Seuss’ saying, “today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is you’er than you.”

Pottie is a qualified Staff Nurse (SN) and is energised by taking care of people, including her patients, family and friends. Whether a patient pops into the practice for wrinkle injections, fillers, or anything else, she makes it her mission to show them the utmost care and attention. She explains, “knowing that I might make a difference in someone else’s life today makes me want to jump out of bed in the morning.” Whenever anyone spends time with Pottie, they always leave her feeling a little lighter and a lot more positive, as she has a quirky, charming personality quite unlike any other.
