About the Department of Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery at Eilenriede Clinic Hannover

The Department of Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery at the Eilenriede Clinic Hannover offers the full range of modern surgical and cosmetic procedures to improve the appearance. The department has been conducting successful clinical activities for over 25 years and during this time has gained an excellent reputation. The team of the department's surgeons performs plastic surgery on the face and body. Many interventions are performed for the correction of age-related changes. The presence of advanced computer equipment in the department allows the doctors to carry out preliminary modeling of the final result of plastic surgery, and the patient can assess his future appearance in advance. Prior to the surgical intervention, the plastic surgeon devotes enough time to counseling so that the patient has a clear idea of ​​how the intervention will be performed and what therapeutic measures will be required after the plastic surgery. Most plastic surgeries are performed in the department using sparing laparoscopic techniques, so patients can quickly return to their daily life. The department is headed by Dr. med. Thomas Flietner.

The department's plastic surgeons have a perfect command of all modern techniques, and therefore they successfully select the optimal type of surgical intervention, which will allow achieving the desired result and making it as natural as possible. Prior to the surgical intervention, the plastic surgeon appoints the required set of diagnostic tests for the patient, and also excludes severe concomitant pathologies that may be a contraindication for the intervention. In addition, 3D modeling of the expected result is often performed before the operation using special computer programs, so the patient can assess his new appearance even before the plastic surgery and, if necessary, make changes together with the surgeon.

The most demanded plastic surgeries in the department include facelift, nose and ear reshaping, eyelid surgery, breast augmentation and lift, liposuction and abdominoplasty. The specialists of the medical facility often admit patients who want to get rid of age-related changes with the help of Botox and filler injections, as well as to correct the shape of their lips. The goal of each member of the department's medical team is to achieve the most natural result that meets the patient's expectations.

Many women are not satisfied with the appearance of their breasts, so they resort to the services of plastic surgeons for their augmentation. The department's specialists perform breast plastic surgery using modern high-quality silicone implants. A consultation with the surgeon is followed by the preparatory stage, which takes 1-3 days. Prior to the surgical intervention, the patient must undergo an examination, including blood tests, breast ultrasound, ECG and other tests. The plastic surgeon then assesses the results of the diagnostic examinations and analyzes the proportions of the woman's body to select the optimal implant size. Breast augmentation surgery is performed under general anesthesia. The duration of the intervention is about two hours. Scars after surgery are almost invisible. The final stage is the patient's recovery after surgery, which involves the use of special compression bandages and the intake of medicines for pain relief.

More and more women and men come to the department with a desire to get rid of wrinkles and rejuvenate themselves. To achieve these goals, the department's specialists have many techniques, including non-surgical ones. First of all, the plastic surgeon considers the use of innovative techniques that exclude an invasive intervention. The department successfully performs Botox, hyaluronic acid and collagen injections, various types of peelings, CO2 laser resurfacing treatments, etc. All procedures are absolutely safe and ensure excellent results. The patients over the age of 40 often need a facelift – a set of plastic interventions aimed at eliminating wrinkles, skin laxity and other age-related changes.

The team of surgeons of the medical facility specializes in the full range of plastic interventions in the face and body. Doctors consider each clinical case with maximum responsibility, carefully plan the upcoming intervention and strive to provide the patient with the most natural result.
