About the department

The plastic and aesthetic surgery department at St. Zdislavy Hospital Velke Mezirici specializes in improving the patient's appearance and restoring facial and body tissue defects caused by illness, injury, or congenital disorders. Plastic surgeons restore and improve function and aesthetic appearance. The department's doctors collaborate with multidisciplinary teams and world-renowned specialists to provide patients with the highest quality comprehensive care. The main principles of the plastic surgery department are a thorough analysis of the surgical problem, careful planning of operations, precise technique and atraumatic handling of tissues. As a result, medical professionals offer patients the most effective, safe and modern surgical methods combined with personalized and caring care.

Plastic surgery includes reconstructive and aesthetic (cosmetic) procedures. The most popular procedure in the department is abdominoplasty after pregnancy, weight loss or rupture. Doctors also remove excess skin and subcutaneous tissue on the inside of the arms and thighs. Often, all plastic surgeries are combined with liposuction for the best aesthetic result.
