Breast augmentation or breast enlargement with the highest quality implants or lipofilling and breast size reductions by our experienced plastic surgeons

We offer the highest standard in aesthetic breast surgery. As a highly specialized university hospital we offer breast reconstruction for women post breast cancer surgery. Our plastic surgeons provide consultations in conjunction with other medical specialists, incorporating reconstruction into a patient’s individualized surgical treatment plan, which insures the optimal outcome for our patients. Breast implants are the most common reconstructive technique performed. We use the highest quality premium implants available in the industry. Through an on-going intensive research, our Department is deeply committed to providing our patients not only the newest but also the safest implants. The augmentation of the breast can also be achieved by lipofilling, taking the natural fat deposits from other parts of the patient’s body, for example, the abdomen or the hip area, and injecting it evenly to the patient’s desired sites. The advantage of this procedure is that no foreign material will be implanted in your body, thus greatly reducing the risk of infections and other related complications related to breast implants. The post-surgical breasts have a natural appearance and contour. To achieve good volume we recommend more than one procedure.
A breast reduction surgery is a treatment for women with disproportionately large breasts that cause chronic pains to the head, neck, shoulders, and back or pose physical limitations, restricting sport activities, or discomfort. A breast reduction surgery is a very reliable method for diminishing the size and volume of the enlarged breast and simultaneously “lifting” the breast. The outcome is a tighter and smaller breast. We also perform nipple corrections and breast lifting. A woman’s breasts often change over time, losing their youthful shape and firmness. These changes can result from pregnancy, aging, or weight loss. A breast lift surgery can reshape your breasts, making them firmer and uplifted. We can surgically treat gynecomastia, a disorder in which there is an increase in the size of breast tissue in males. Since there are conditions that cause similar symptoms, the patient will be carefully examined and tested before we explore the surgical options.


We will gladly inform you personally of all therapy options available during our consultation hours.
