Abdominal lifting - Abdominoplasty

In principle, the following is valid: more stable your body weight, higher the chance of a long-lasting result. but even with a slight weight gain, you can still enjoy a long-lasting improvement of your silhouette.

An abdominal lift usually leaves behind fine, pale scars, which after a certain period will be barely visible. Depending on predispositions and wound healing, in very few cases, may appear thicker, slightly reddened scar. The cuts necessary to remove the tissue will be done so that they may be easily covered with a pair of slips or a bathing suit.

It is of the utmost importance that the treating physicians be informed of all diseases and medicinal treatments. Two weeks before the surgery, you must not take any medication that contains Aspirin (i.a. Aspirin, Aspégic and so forth). Certain medications may cause increased bleeding during the surgery and delay the healing process after.  The physician may abort at any time the procedure should the risk be deemed too high because of a previously taken medication.

In principle, every surgery is associated with certain risks (for example, drug intolerances, hematomas, impaired wound healing, inflammations, problematic scarring, somatosensory disorders). They also depend on the general health of the patient. The doctor will inform you of any and all possible risks during the consultation and preparation discussion.

It should be estimated a sick leave of 2 weeks. In the case of occupations with severe physical strain, the sick leave should be at least 6 weeks long.

Sports activities can only be resumed after the complete healing of the wounds (approximately after 6 to 8 weeks).

Generally, the insurance does not cover an abdominal lift. In case of an extreme excess of soft tissues in the abdomen after a severe weight loss, the insurance may cover, very rarely, a portion of the costs.

Body lift

In principle, the following is valid: more stable your body weight, higher the chance of a long-lasting result. but even with a slight weight gain, you can still enjoy a long-lasting improvement of your silhouette.

With the new body lift methods is now possible an "all-around corrective surgery" of the silhouette. The scars of the procedure will be done so that they may be covered by a pair of slips or a bathing suit.

The blood loss in a body lifting corresponds to the standard of a surgical procedure. A blood transfusion is usually not necessary (risk < 50 %)

It should be estimated a sick leave of 4 weeks approximately.

Sports activities can only be resumed after the complete healing of the wounds (approximately after 6 to 8 weeks).

Generally, the insurance does not cover an body lift procedure.

Breast lifting - Mastopexy

The incision runs around the areola and vertically downwards. In some cases, a further incision along the natural breast fold will be necessary. How noticeable these scars will be, depends on the individual, genetically conditioned cicatrization. In normal cases, the breast lift leaves behind fine, pale scars, which are only marginally visible.

By removing the tissues and skin, the position of the areolae changes. To achieve an aesthetically pleasing result, the nipples will be adjusted in relation to the new breast and the areolae lifted to their new position, without impairing their sensitivity.

Depending on your occupation, it should be estimated a sick leave of approximately seven days. Should you have an occupation with a particularly demanding physical strain, the sick leave may last up to 4 weeks.

After six to eight weeks all traces of the surgery should be completely healed, so that you may start practicing sports again, albeit with caution. You may begin with light exercise such as walking or biking 4 weeks after the surgery. It is advisable to resume strength training, playing golf or swimming only 6 weeks after the surgery.

The costs for a breast lifting will not be covered by the insurance since it is a solely aesthetic surgical procedure. In the case of patients who must concurrently undergo a breast reduction for medical purposes, the insurance may cover a portion if not all of the costs.

Breast augmentation - mammary augmentation

The 4 and 1/2 long scar will either be along the breast fold or around the areolae and, after a complete healing, it will be nearly invisible. The pros and cons of the respective techniques will be discussed together with the patient.

Similarly to other procedures which include the use of foreign bodies and implants, by a breast augmentation, it cannot be completely excluded the possibility that after a few years a new procedure will be necessary. The reason for an eventual replacement does not depend on the durability of the implants, but rather on the changes of the patient's body. Therefore, the probability of a replacement increases with age. But, a replacement every 15-20 years, as it may sometimes be recommended these days, is not necessary.  Due to the experience with the newest silicon implants, today we can rely on a long durability.

We use only the most modern implants of the highest quality made with cross-linked silicone. The advantage: they cannot leak and guarantee a beautiful, natural result.

At first, you will experience a slight pressure feeling. Should the implant be inserted under the musculature, the pains may be significant in the first 2 weeks. For a couple of weeks, sometimes for longer, you may experience a loss of or reduced sensitivity. In most cases, this will normalize with time.  Only very rarely, do patients complain in the first six weeks about feeling a foreign body. Very thin patients with few subcutaneous fats may experience this feeling. But, usually, an implant is neither visible nor palpable from the outside.

In principle, every surgery is associated with certain risks (for example, drug intolerances, hematomas, impaired wound healing, inflammations, problematic scarring, somatosensory disorders). They also depend on the general health of the patient.

A specific risk is the formation of a capsular fibrosis. This is a natural reaction to the foreign body, which consists of an encasing of the implants by the body's own connective tissue.

If this connective tissues contract, the implants will be constricted and the breast will feel harder. In the most severe cases, a corrective surgery procedure will be necessary to remove the scarred tissue. Often this will be performed in combination with an implant replacement.

The doctor will inform you of any and all possible risks during the consultation and preparation discussion.

The breast augmentation does not impair the breastfeeding capabilities, because the implants are placed behind the lactiferous glands.

No. Exhaustive studies have shown that breast implants do not cause a higher breast cancer risk.

It depends on the surgical techniques and the individual anatomy. If enough lactiferous glandular tissue remains in the upper section of the newly modeled breast, then is breastfeeding after a breast reduction procedure still possible.

Depending on your occupation, it should be estimated a sick leave of 7 to 10 days. Should you have an occupation which includes severe physical strain, the sick leave may last up to 4 weeks.

After six to eight weeks all traces of the surgery should be completely healed, so that you may start practicing sports again, albeit with caution. You may begin with light exercise such as walking or biking 4 weeks after the surgery. It is advisable to resume strength training, playing golf or swimming only 6 weeks after the surgery.

Since large, heavy breasts may cause health problems (i.a. back pain, postural damages, impairment of everyday life activities, etc.) the insurance may cover in some case the surgical procedure and treatment of a breast reduction, as long as the following criteria are met:

At least 500 g of mammary glandular tissue must be removed per side.

The patient may be only slightly or not at all overweight  (BMI < 25)

Pains and postural problems were already treated unsuccessfully with non-invasive therapies (for example, with physical therapy)

Breast augmentation with concurrent lifting - Mastopexy augmentation

The incision runs around the areola and vertically downwards. In some cases, a further incision along the natural breast fold will be necessary. How noticeable these scars will be, depends on the individual, genetically conditioned cicatrization. In normal cases, the breast lift leaves behind fine, pale scars, which are only marginally visible.

A breast augmentation procedure with breast lifting cannot be covered by the insurance. But, should you suffer from a subsequent capsular fibrosis, the insurance will certainly cover a portion of the costs.

Liposuction

The aspirate adipose cells will no longer be reproduced. Should your weight remain stable, you can rely on a permanent result. But in case of a severe weight gain, an increase of the fat deposits may occur both on the treated regions and other parts as well, which can disturb the aesthetical balance of the whole silhouette.

The microscopic incisions will be practically no longer visible after the healing. Eventual scars will be similar to pale moles. Only in case of a concurrent lifting, should be anticipated a more significant scar formation.

It is of the utmost importance that the treating physicians be informed of all diseases and medicinal treatments. Two weeks before the surgery, you must not take any medication that contains Aspirin (i.a. Aspirin, Aspégic and so forth).

They also depend on the general health of the patient. The doctor will inform you of any and all possible risks during the consultation and preparation discussion.

If the skin is not elastic enough to adjust to the changing body shape, wave-shaped imperfections may appear in the tissues. A subsequent skin lifting may provide the desired result, although possible scar formation should be considered in this case. Eventual small residual fat deposits can be corrected in an ambulatory procedure with a simple local anesthesia. Only very rarely, may occur somatosensory disorders in the treated area.

A temporary numbness is perfectly normal. Only in extremely rare cases, a permanent somatosensory disorder may occur.

The sick leave should last between 5 and 7 days.

6 weeks after the procedure.

No. Liposuction procedures are not covered by insurance.

Mini-facelifting

It may only cautiously predicted how long a wrinkle and contour corrective procedure will last, because it depends on the individual conditions, the lifestyle, the mimic and the quality of the skin. Generally, it can be assumed that, after 10 years, the results will still be visible. The natural aging process will progress, but the effect achieved by the lifting will be preserved. Moreover, the mini-lift may be repeated or supplemented by a complete face/neck lift, if, due to the advancing aging process, at a later point, unwelcomed substantial contour alterations should occur again. 

The goal of a serious treatment is to preserve the natural radiance and the individual facial features of the patient and not to create an artificial look, which is often referred to as a consequence of a facelift. A successful mini-lift is not noticeable as such. The people around you will notice your new look, but they will more likely attribute it to a relaxing vacation. 

The incisions are done so that they are well covered by the natural folds of the ear and along the hair-covered parts of the face. Moreover, the incisions are so fine that after the healing process is completed they will be barely visible.

It is of the utmost importance that the treating physicians be informed of all diseases and medicinal treatments. Two weeks before the surgery, you must not take any medication that contains Aspirin (i.a. Aspirin, Aspégic and so forth).

They also depend on the general health of the patient. The doctor will inform you of any and all possible risks during the consultation and preparation discussion. 

This depends on the individual healing process and your personal preferences. We recommend a recovery period of 3 to 4 weeks.  

For four to six weeks after the surgery, you should avoid sports activities. Subsequently, you may start training again, albeit with caution. 

No. Lift procedures in the facial area are not covered by insurance. 

Upper / lower eyelid lift – blepharoplasty

No, the shape of the eye will not be altered. Only the skin and fat tissues in the excess will be removed. An upper or lower eyelid lift will, of course, have an effect on the facial expression, since the eyes will appear more "free" and will be enhanced. 

The result of an upper eyelid lift will last for many years. The natural aging process will progress, but the effect achieved by the eyelid lift will be preserved. Should the upper eyelid, with the passing of the years, shift downwards again, due to unfavorable predispositions, lifestyle, mimic or skin quality, the procedure may be repeated again after 10 years. 

In an upper eyelid procedure, the incision will be done so that after the healing process is concluded they will no longer be visible. In a lower eyelid lift, the incision run underneath the eyelashes, continuing laterally and will, therefore, be barely visible. 

We recommend comfortable, not too tight-fitting clothes. Moreover, it would be an advantage if you should come for the treatment without wearing makeup. Bring your sunglasses too, so that you may wear them when you leave the clinic. They will protect your eyes and cover the still fresh signs of the surgery. 

Es ist in jedem Fall äusserst wichtig, dass Sie den behandelnden Arzt über Krankheiten und medikamentöse Behandlungen informieren. Zwei Wochen vor dem Eingriff dürfen keine Aspirin-haltigen Medikamente mehr eingenommen werden (Blutverdünnungseffekt). Solche Medikamente können während der Operation zu einer vermehrten Blutung führen und den späteren Heilungsverlauf hinauszögern. Der Arzt kann von einer geplanten Operation jederzeit absehen, wenn infolge einer vorgängigen Medikamenteneinnahme das Operationsrisiko erhöht ist.

It is of the utmost importance that the treating physicians be informed of all diseases and medicinal treatments. Two weeks before the surgery, you must not take any medication that contains Aspirin (i.a. Aspirin, Aspégic and so forth). Certain medications may cause increased bleeding during the surgery and delay the healing process after.  The physician may abort at any time the procedure should the risk be deemed too high because of a previously taken medication. 

In extremely rare cases, after a lower eyelid lift, an "ectropium" may occur (outward protruding lower eyelid). You may also incur the risk of conjunctivitis. But, both conditions are temporary.

It depends not only on the individual healing process and the personal preferences of the patient but on his/her occupational and social responsibilities. It will take a few days until the swellings and redness caused by the surgery subside (a week for the upper eyelid lift, and two weeks for the lower eyelid lift). But already 3 days after the removal of the sutures, any eventual redness may be covered up with makeup.  

After a lower eyelid lift, you should not practice sports for approximately four weeks. After an upper eyelid lift, you may resume sports activities after 2 weeks. 

A lower eyelid lift is a purely aesthetic surgical procedure. Therefore, the cost of the treatment cannot be covered by insurance. Should the upper eyelid lift procedure be performed due to a pronounced ptosis, which for example impairs the visions, the insurance may cover the costs. Nevertheless, an exhaustive medical clarification will be necessary for the insurance to cover all or even only a portion of the costs.

Inner labia reduction

Swelling of the treated region, hematomas (they may be quite pronounced), fungal infections, somatosensory disorders (temporary), erythema of the surrounding skin. 

Urination and bowel movements are unreservedly possible. After defecation, if needed, the treated region should be rinsed carefully. 

On average, a 5-day recovery period after the surgery will be necessary. Durchschnittlich ist mit einer 5-tägigen Erholungszeit nach der OP zu rechnen.

During that time, please wear only comfortable clothes such as tracksuit pants, leggins, skirts. No tight-fitting jeans (pressure point). 

The scars will not be visible after the surgery. But, swellings may occur up until 6 weeks after the surgery.

Generally, the insurance does not cover this surgical procedure.
