After graduating with her MBChB from the University of Cape Town, Dr Johnson qualified as a plastic surgeon at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, where she worked in the craniofacial unit under Professor Madaree.
Here she performed extensive surgeries for craniosynostosis and facial clefts and completed an additional diploma in Microsurgery.

She subsequently developed an interest in facial aesthetics and rejuvenation and is now in full-time private practice at the Gateway Private Hospital in Umhlanga.

Most of her procedures are cosmetic, utilising multiple modalities – both surgical and nonsurgical and she has a special interest in fat injection for rejuvenation.
