Mr Dan Prinsloo is a cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgeon serving North Staffordshire and Shropshire.

He first qualified in 1987 as a Medical Doctor at the University of Pretoria, South Africa, where he graduated as a Bachelor of Medicine/Bachelor of Surgery(MBChB).  He was always interested in plastic and reconstructive surgery and had extensive exposure to surgical procedures even as a junior doctor.  In 1989, he joined the extensive training programme in plastic and reconstructive surgery at the University of Pretoria.

He qualified as a plastic surgeon in 1995 after completing his Master’s degree in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (MMed Plast Surg).  In the same year, he also achieved the distinction of becoming a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of South Africa (FCS Plast (SA)).

Further training and experience

Mr Prinsloo was appointed as Consultant Plastic Surgeon within the NHS in South Africa (Pretoria) in 1996.  He decided to gain further specialised training and experience by undertaking fellowships in some of the best plastic surgery units in the world.  He received further extensive training in Taipei (Taiwan), Tokyo (Japan) and Glasgow (Scotland).  He then returned to South Africa to continue his work as a consultant within the NHS as well as working as a private cosmetic surgeon.  He moved to the UK in 1998 and in 1999 was appointed as Consultant Plastic Surgeon within the NHS in North Staffordshire (Newcastle-under-Lyme) and Shropshire (Shrewsbury).

Training of plastic surgeons
