About Dr Natalia Novikova
I am a gynaecologist with an interest in aesthetic gynaecology and urogynaecology practicing in a well-established Hospital, Mediclinic Cape Town, which is situated in the beautiful part of central Cape Town, Gardens / Oranjezicht and Intercare Day Hospital Sandton in Johannesburg.
I am passionate about looking after women with gynaecological problems and finding an answer to my patients’ needs. Aesthetic gynaecology is a new exciting field and I am very proud to be the first and so far the only, certified by European Society of Aesthetic Gynaecology, aesthetic gynaecologist in South Africa.
Being an advanced minimally invasive gynaecological surgeon and having a special interest in urogynaecology allows me to bring a full package of skills to women seeking assistance with female genital reconstructive surgery and non-invasive procedures, improving genital appearance as well as treating incontinence, vaginal dryness, laxity and other problems.
I come from Ukraine where I got my medical degree in 1998. I studied and worked in different countries (Ukraine, Sweden, Australia and finally South Africa)… Read More
After years of painfully struggling to have intercourse or to even insert tampons, I made an appointment with Dr Novikova. I had been to other gynaecologists and GPs who had injured me trying to examine me or perform a pap smear, which probably made my condition worse. Dr Novikova very quickly diagnosed me with vaginismus and offered me a life changing solution. Within a few weeks of the simple procedure I could already see a difference, and now 6 months later… I am living a completely normal life. Dr Novikova is the most re-assuring and empowering doctor that I have met… not many people can walk out of a gynaecology exam with a smile and more confidence than when they entered!
I hesitated on having such a big operation, but felt so at peace after my appointment with Dr Novikova… I really felt like she cared, even about the small details, and it is so much easier to ask personal questions from a woman doctor… I was also very happy with the final result… it is impossible to see I have had any operation at all.
After my first consultation with Dr Novikova her friendly and professional manner put me at ease. She was able to answer all of my questions and give me multiple solutions.
When I saw the results for the first time the surgery went better than I had hoped. I am extremely happy and thankful for the results of the labiaplasty and the removal of the polyp as well as Dr Novikova’s constant support through the entire process.
“I had almost given up on tight pants, gym clothes, and sexy panties. I was always tucking in my labia or it was just unbearably painful. The operation was so quick and easy, I didn’t even need to take anything for the pain. Now I can wear any clothes I like. I am so happy with the results of the procedure.”
“Before I had laser with Dr Novikova I had to run to the bathroom all the time, and had embarrassing leaks when I sneezed or jumped. Having Femilift changed it completely – I can hold my urine now, which has helped me get through the day without those accidents, made me sleep much better at night, and given me the confidence to get out and exercise again”
“Before I had my children I had an amazing sex life, 3 natural births later, it was like there was nothing there. Thanks to Femilift sex is so much better. It feels tighter for me, my sex drive and orgasms are back! My husband can’t believe the difference either”
