The Medical Team

No aesthetic surgeon is equally well-versed in every procedure and every surgical technique. Nevertheless specializations in a field as broad as medicine are important and sensible. Hence there are experts in liposuction and body contouring, in breast operations, nose jobs, eyelid and scar correction, etc.

The following national and international specialists will advise and treat you in the Clinic DDr. Heinrich®, in order to ensure that you receive the best possible care for your particular problem from the right person. Furthermore, in certain individual cases we will also consult with other doctors, or we will gladly refer you to expert colleagues for procedures and treatments outside our specialty fields.
