About the department

The Klinik am Rhein in Düsseldorf, headed by Dr. med. Holger Hofheinz, offers the full range of plastic and aesthetic surgery. The main focus is placed on breast and face surgery, as well as on all body contouring interventions. The range of surgical services is complemented by a large number of minimally invasive aesthetic treatments, including laser therapy and wrinkle injections. All operations are performed by plastic surgery specialists with many years of experience. 

All surgeons are members of the German Society of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery (DGPRÄC). The team of 5 physicians is assisted by the experienced anesthesiologists. Prior to the treatment the patient undergoes a thorough diagnosis, which makes up a basis for the decision on the type of treatment and a suitable form of anesthesia. A total of 12 certified members of the nursing staff and medical assistants take care of the patient's health around the clock before and after all the treatment procedures. 

The clinic uses state-of-the-art medical technologies, for example, innovative Canfield's Vectra 3D imaging system. The camera allows the physicians of the clinic to make a more accurate diagnosis of the initial condition, as well as to plan the surgical intervention together with a realistic simulation of aesthetic results. The computer system shows the results with the accuracy up to millimeters, asymmetry and other differences. In addition, it specifies special pigment and vascular conditions of the patients’ skin.

In addition to the conventional breast, body and facial surgery, the Plastic Surgery Clinic also uses 3D technologies for planning non-surgical procedures (e.g. wrinkle treatment and facial volume changes). This makes it possible to more accurately plan the intervention and take into account all the features. Moreover, the patients of the clinic can have a realistic 3D simulation of the desired result before the intervention. 

The doctors of the clinic pay special attention to individual counseling, and therefore do not spare any time to provide exhaustive consultations and answer all  patient's questions. In most cases, doctors have several possible treatments and considering individual needs and anatomical features of the patient decide on the optimal one. It goes without saying that from the first conversation and preparation for the treatment up to the follow-up care the patient is under the supervision of one doctor.
