Lid Lift

The procedure is done under local anaesthetic on an outpatient basis. By removing excess skin and, if necessary, fat and muscle tissue, the eye regains a more open appearance. The patient’s field of vision expands and the face obtains a fresher, more alert and youthful appearance.

×

Lacrimal Sacs

A straight lower lid lift can be performed under local anaesthetic via an incision on the inner edge of the eye. Excess fat (lacrimal sacs, or under-eye bags) are only partially removed. A small quantity of the fat is then transferred lower down in order to conceal prominent tear troughs.

×

Facelift

Depending on the extent of facial ageing, excess skin can be tightened during a facelift via small incisions in front of the ear (short-scar-lift), or via the more typical incisions behind the ear and/or in front of or throughout the patient’s hairline. A so-called major facelift is performed under general anaesthetic and requires a brief stay in hospital.

×

Lipotransfer

A breast augmentation can be done using either an implant or the transfer of the patient’s own body fat (lipotransfer). Only silicone implants of the highest quality are used. Every patient receives an implant certificate so that the information pertaining to the implant is always readily available. An implant is inserted either over or under the pectoralis major muscle. The scars are placed hidden either underneath the breast, in the arm pit, or in the area of the areola.

×

Upper Eyelid Lift

The procedure is done under local anaesthetic on an outpatient basis. By removing excess skin and, if necessary, fat and muscle tissue, the eye regains a more open appearance. The patient’s field of vision expands and the face obtains a fresher, more alert and youthful appearance.

×

Lower Lid Lift

A straight lower lid lift can be performed under local anaesthetic via an incision on the inner edge of the eye. Excess fat (lacrimal sacs, or under-eye bags) are only partially removed. A small quantity of the fat is then transferred lower down in order to conceal prominent tear troughs.

×

Facelift/Mini-Lift/Temple Lift

Depending on the extent of facial ageing, excess skin can be tightened during a facelift via small incisions in front of the ear (short-scar-lift), or via the more typical incisions behind the ear and/or in front of or throughout the patient’s hairline. A so-called major facelift is performed under general anaesthetic and requires a brief stay in hospital.

×

Midfacelift

Subsidence of the central section of the face is part of the ageing process. This subsidence ages the face and gives it a tired appearance. By lifting the sagging body of fat, usually in combination with an operative correction of lacrimal sacs or loose lower lids, the face can be given a more youthful, fresher expression. The procedure is performed under sedation or general anaesthetic. Patients remain in hospital for at least one night.

×

Neck Lift

An undesirable neck appearance is very common. It is also, however, often a burden and usually a clear sign of ageing. There are numerous possibilities of achieving an improvement depending on the patient’s wishes. Options include, among others, a combination of laser therapy and botulinum toxin, liposuction, or an operative lift of the flat neck muscle and excess skin. A combination of various techniques can also be used.

×

Otoplasty

Projecting ears often cause children a lot of stress. An operative correction should ideally be done before the child begins school. The procedure in adults is usually not covered by health insurance. Other corrective procedures of the ear include correction of deformities, reductions, or a correction of the earlobes, for example as a result of injury or a tear due to a piercing.

×

Wrinkle Treatment with Own Fat

One of the most significant factors of visible ageing of the face is the loss of volume, i.e. fat. This volume loss, resulting in pronounced facial wrinkles, can be treated via the transplant of own body fat, for example, abdominal or thigh fat. The fat is gently removed under local anaesthetic and transplanted into the affected areas in the face with very fine needles. This procedure allows for gentle and precise facial contouring and treatment of wrinkles for a longer duration of time. In some cases it can also complement the effects of a facelift or constitute the best option for the treatment of signs of ageing, usually in patients with less pronounced signs of ageing, e.g. younger patients.

Breast Augmentation (implant or lipo-transfer)

A breast augmentation can be done using either an implant or the transfer of the patient’s own body fat (lipotransfer). Only silicone implants of the highest quality are used. Every patient receives an implant certificate so that the information pertaining to the implant is always readily available. An implant is inserted either over or under the pectoralis major muscle. The scars are placed hidden either underneath the breast, in the arm pit, or in the area of the areola.
The use of lipotransfer enables only a moderate enlargement of the breast (one cup size). Fat is transferred into the breast from the thighs or abdomen for example. Two or three operations are sometimes necessary to achieve the desired results.

×

Breast Reduction

Many women suffer from breasts that are too large. Using advanced techniques we can reduce and shape the breasts, resulting in well-formed breasts with less weight.

×

Breast Cancer Surgery with Oncoplastic Techniques

The tumour is removed using techniques that retain, sometimes enhance, the shape of the breast. In case the axillary lymph nodes must be examined, a Sentinel Node Biopsy is performed in order to minimise invasiveness of the operation

×

Male Breasts (Gynecomastia)

Removal of fat and gland tissue in enlarged male breasts.

×

Liposuction

Localised excess fat accumulations can be removed via suction using vibrating needles. Liquid is initially injected into the affected area in order to break up the fat cells in the tissue. This is done under local anaesthetic (tumescence anaesthesia) or sedation, depending on the extent of the operation. A special compression garment must be worn for 4-8 weeks after the procedure. Typical sites for liposuction are the outer thigh area (saddle bags), abdomen, inner thighs, upper arms, neck, and male breasts.

×

Lift Operations (Abdomen, Thighs, Upper Arms)

Problem areas with excess skin are often typical side effects of weight loss, pregnancy, or ageing. These areas can be removed only through surgery. Scars are hidden where possible. The procedure is done under general anaesthetic. Compression garments must be worn for several weeks after the operation.

×

Labiaplasty

Excessively large inner labia can cause problems during sex or exercise. The procedure is performed under local anaesthetic on an outpatient basis. Outer labia with too much loss of volume can be corrected via an own fat transfer.

×

Sweat Gland Suction

Sweat glands can be suctioned off using sharp needles, similar to liposuction. The procedure is done under local anaesthetic.

×

Botox for Excessive Sweating (Hyperhidrosis)

By paralysing the muscles responsible for transferring sweat to the outside of the body, excessive sweating, for example under the arms or of the feet, can be relieved for the duration of the effect of botulinum toxin, usually around 4-6 months.

×

Trigger Finger

When a finger flexor tendon becomes too tight the affected finger becomes difficult to straighten after crooking it. It locks or catches. When straightening the locked finger it pops, giving the impression of releasing a trigger on a gun. A minor operation under local anaesthetic can correct the issue.

×

Dupuytren's Contracture

Duptuytren’s contracture causes the palmar fascia within the hand to become abnormally thick. This can cause individual fingers to curl. Depending on the extent of the disease, an operation is performed under local or general anaesthetic and a short stay in hospital. A new drug to treat the condition in its early stages is currently undergoing clinical testing.

×

Carpal tunnel syndrome

A narrowing of the carpal tunnel in the wrist entraps the median nerve causing pain, especially at night, loss of feeling, or increasing weakness of the affected hand. The nerve is eventually damaged by the entrapment. Carpal tunnel release surgery can relieve symptoms.

×

Ganglion

A ganglion is a spherical bulge in a tendon sheath that can usually be corrected under local anaesthetic.

×

Syndrome of the Loge de Guyon

A narrowing of the Guyon’s canal in the wrist causes the ulnar nerve to be compressed and leads to pain, especially at night, loss of sensation in the fingers, or increasing weakness of the affected hand. The nerve is damaged by the entrapment. The ring or little fingers are most commonly affected. Surgical widening of the Guyon’s canal relieves symptoms and allows the nerve to recover.

×

Ulnar Nerve Entrapment

The ulnar nerve runs through the cubital tunnel which is located along the outer edge of the elbow. Obstruction of the cubital tunnel causes discomfort and/or loss of sensation in the hand. The condition can be treated with an operation that widens the cubital tunnel, done under local or general anaesthetic.
