The Department of Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery, Reconstructive and Hand Surgery has been a large and internationally well-known medical center for more than 40 years. The former medical directors, Dr. Herbert Höhler, Prof. Dr. Gottfried Lemperle and the current director, Dr. Klaus Exner are internationally renowned plastic surgeons.
Over 100 residents have acquired specialist medical qualifications and in the meantime have become active as medical directors or physicians in private practice. The medical team offers all modern procedures in the discipline of plastic surgery at a very high level of competency. The department primarily focuses on aesthetic facial surgery, breast surgery and body shaping. An additional focus is reconstructive plastic surgery of the breast in breast cancer and other tumors of the skin and soft tissues, after severe injuries and burns, and in congenital malformations, such as cleft lip face palate, hand deformities, urogenital malformations and facial nerve damage.
The department is a center for microsurgery. Breast reconstruction with the patient's own tissue has been successfully performed more than 20 years, along with free flap grafts for reconstruction after tumors and injuries. The medical team also provides a notable clinical focus in hand surgery. For more than 30 years, our department has provided medical assistance at no cost to third world countries. Since then, several thousand children with cleft lip face palate and other plastic surgery problems have been successfully treated.
