About the Department of Plastic Surgery at Klinik am Rhein Duesseldorf

The Department of Plastic Surgery at the Klinik am Rhein Duesseldorf offers the full range of plastic and aesthetic interventions. The department mostly performs operations on the breast and face, as well as all types of interventions for body reshaping. The medical facility performs a large number of plastic surgeries using sparing minimally invasive techniques, after which there are practically no scars, and the recovery takes place in the shortest possible time. Such surgical interventions also allow patients to avoid serious health risks. The range of surgical services is complemented by a variety of interventional aesthetic procedures, including laser therapy, hyaluronic acid and botulinum toxin injection therapy for the treatment of wrinkles. The patients are admitted by experienced plastic surgeons who have managed to perform thousands of successful operations during their long clinical practice. The specialists carefully listen to the wishes of their patients and offer them the best options for solving the problem. The department's surgeons believe that it is important not only to provide the patient with a good result, but also to guarantee him the highest safety of treatment in a pleasant environment.

The department is headed by Dr. med. Holger Hofheinz. The plastic surgeon has a perfect command of the modern techniques and for more than 20 years has been giving his patients the opportunity to obtain a beautiful appearance, once and for all getting rid of a low self-esteem. According to the prestigious Jameda website, Dr. med. Holger Hofheinz ranks among the top five surgeons in Duesseldorf – based on independent patient assessment.

The department's medical team consists of 5 specialized surgeons and competent anesthesiologists. All surgeons are members of the German Society of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (DGPRÄC), so the patients can be sure that they work in compliance with all current requirements for the surgical treatment and clinical protocols. Prior to the surgical intervention, the patient undergoes comprehensive diagnostics to eliminate any risks during the surgical treatment. The results of the preliminary examination also serve as the basis for choosing the optimal type of treatment and the most appropriate form of anesthesia. A team of 12 certified nursing staff and medical assistants takes care of the patient's condition before and after surgery around the clock .

In many cases, the department's plastic surgeons use the innovative Canfield VECTRA XT 3D imaging system. This device allows the doctors of the medical facility to carry out accurate preoperative diagnostics, as well as plan the course and results of the intervention. The patient can see a realistic computer simulation of his future appearance even before the operation. The VECTRA XT demonstrates results with millimeter accuracy, reveals asymmetry and other differences, as well as indicates the pigmentation and vascular condition of the skin.

Along with classical operations on the breast, body and face, the department's specialists use 3D technologies to plan non-surgical procedures, such as the treatment of wrinkles and face reshaping. This makes it possible to more accurately plan the intervention and take into account the patient's individual characteristics. In addition, in this case, the department's patients can also assess a realistic 3D simulation of the desired result in advance.

The doctors pay due attention to individual consultations, during which they give detailed answers to their patient's questions. In most cases, the doctors have several possible treatment methods at their disposal, from which the optimal one is selected, taking into account the patient's wishes and anatomical features. To achieve the desired aesthetic result, the patient is monitored by one doctor from the very first consultation until he or she is discharged from the clinic.
