Specialist in Plastic, Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery
General Licenced and Legally Certified Expert
Deputy Medical Director of the Schwarzl Klinik

My Philosophy
I don't see plastic surgery as a profession, but as my purpose in life. In no other branch of medicine is success so clearly visible than in aesthetic plastic surgery. Sharing the happiness of the patients in their new attitude towards life is the most positive aspect of this profession, but I also see it as being a constant challenge to actually achieve this objective.
