About the department

The department of plastic and aesthetic surgery at ATOS Orthopedic Clinic Munich developed innovative and internationally recognized surgical and treatment methods in eyelid plastic, rhinoplasty, and abdominoplasty. The staff is involved in scientific work and contributes to numerous textbooks and instructional videos in aesthetic surgery. Between 2013 and 2017, the professors working at the department were named the best doctors in Germany for rhinoplasty, facelifts, eyelid surgery, and breast surgery five times in a row in the renowned FOCUS list of doctors. With its excellent medical care and extensive infrastructure, the department offers a perfect setting for a plastic and aesthetic practice. The technologies used at the department corresponding to the highest standards of medical service. For example, breast augmentation is performed with the 3D simulation technology Vectra XT. With this technology, different breast sizes can be displayed three-dimensionally before the breast operation, and a possible surgical result can be shown before the breast lift or breast augmentation. 

The department is involved in plastic surgery, such as plastic reconstructions, augmentations, aesthetic procedures, and more. Special attention is given to facial cosmetic surgery and facial rejuvenation.
