Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery – competence at the highest level

“Beauty is a primeval phenomenon. It never makes an appearance itself, but is a visible reflection in a thousand different utterances of the creative mind. It is as various as nature herself.” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Aesthetic surgery is delicate work. Shaping forms with precision to achieve a sense of harmony, to create a new appearance demands the eyes of an artist. Our surgeons perform a wide array of aesthetic procedures, some of which are listed and briefly introduced below:

  • Breast augmentation with the highest quality brand implants available or using lipofilling, taking the patient’s own body fat from other parts; breast lift (mastopexy); breast reduction; abdominoplasty (“tummy tuck”), liposuction, thigh or arm lift, and body contouring after weight loss or bariatric surgery.

  • Botox® and fillers or lipofilling (fat injection): Botox© is commonly used to treat deep wrinkles by weakening specific muscles that create facial lines. Fillers or lipofilling are used, as the name suggests, to augment volume of the lips or other areas of the face.

  • Facial rejuvenation which includes lifts of the face, neck, brow, and eye. We also perform eyelid surgery and “double-eyelid” surgery, as known in Asia and where this technique is widely practiced, a surgical technique to “create” a double eyelid (“crease”) to enhance the eyes.

  • Rhinoplasty (“nose corrective surgery”) is extremely complex and technically demanding, requiring a highly experienced surgeon with an eye for details.

  • Laser therapy, a new and modern non-surgical method to treat – remove, reduce, or improve – scars.
