About the department

The plastic and aesthetic surgery department at Helios Hospital Krefeld specializes in standard plastic aesthetic and reconstructive procedures. The goal of the department's medical team is to relieve patients of complexes and restore their quality of life as much as possible. The department's experienced surgeons always strive to regain shape and maintain functionality during the face, limbs, or mammary gland operations. Only innovative microsurgical techniques are used to perform interventions on the mammary gland, which exclude damage to muscle tissue. Plastic surgeons successfully perform operations to eliminate breast asymmetry and restore the nipple and areola.

The scope of the department's tasks includes the treatment of chronic wounds, obesity, lymphedema and lipedema. The department is also one of the leading centres for treating sternum osteomyelitis. The primary treatment method used to treat osteomyelitis is surgical debridement. In addition to effective modern surgical interventions, the department provides lymphatic drainage, compression therapy and physiotherapy. Any surgical intervention is preceded by a comprehensive consultation, during which caring surgeons, together with the patient, choose the most optimal and acceptable treatment option.
