About the department

The Department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery at the Hirslanden Clinic Meggen offers the full range of surgical treatment in the area of its specialization. It performs operations of varying degrees of complexity to correct defects of the face and entire body. The tasks of the department's doctors also include conservative anti-aging procedures – Botox and hyaluronic acid injections, as well as injections of autologous adipose tissue (the patient's own adipose tissue after special processing). When performing plastic surgery to improve the appearance of a person, surgeons aim to satisfy all the wishes of the patient and achieve a beautiful and at the same time the most natural result. The department is headed by Dr. med. Alexander Fuchs.

The department is equipped with cutting-edge technology and has high-tech operating rooms, which meet all current standards of sterility and safety. Each surgical procedure is preceded by medical consultations and necessary diagnostic tests to exclude possible health risks during surgery. The plastic surgeons always take into account the patient's wishes and provide them with the recommendations in order to achieve an impeccable result. A huge advantage for the patients is the availability of innovative 3D modeling programs, which allow them to see the predicted result even before the intervention. Such approach is widely used in Plastic Surgery Clinics around the world and allows the doctors to avoid unsatisfactory treatment results, repeated surgical corrections.

It is noteworthy that the department mostly performs sparing minimally invasive interventions, which are the gold standard of modern surgery. Such operations ensure high-quality results, which are not inferior to classical open surgery, but at the same time these operations allow the doctors to minimize damage to healthy organs and tissues. Minimally invasive surgery can significantly reduce the period of hospitalization and recovery of the patient after the intervention. The risks of infection and development of complications are practically zero. Thus, the department's patients can undergo surgery to correct their appearance without health risks.
