Pre- and post operative care by Nathalie Rogati. Most surgical procedures involve a period of preparation as well as time for recuperation. Nathalie Rogati is a qualified Nursing Assistant with over 25 years experience in surgical support and general patient care.
She started her nursing career in 1987 under the patronage of Dr Bernard Faguear in Paris. In 1991 she went on to work with Dr Gerard Flageal, a Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon, where she remained for 18 years. During this time she also underwent further training in the United States of America.
Later on in her career she assisted Drs Fernandes, Wilkinson and Geldenhuys at Renaissance Body Science Institute in Cape Town for 7 years.
Identifying a need for a specialized patient after-care facility, Nathalie developed a facility in the comfort of her own home, naming this operation “Perfect Care”. Centrally located in the beautiful suburb of Parktown North, she transformed her private residence into a haven where patients can relax and recuperate under her expert supervision. Her dedicated care is conducive to a speedy recovery and includes preoperative support, after-care, transport, nutritional advice and healthy home-made meals.
The Face and Body Place is proud to be associated with Nathalie Rogati and we highly recommend her services to our patients.
