Four expert consultants have created a unique joint practice: Plastic Surgery Frankfurt | Hochtaunus offers a full range of plastic and aesthetic surgery services, with hand surgery also being one of the areas of outstanding expertise. All specialist fields are covered by experienced experts. The team even includes an anaesthetist!
Plastic Surgery Frankfurt | Hochtaunus has two locations. It has a practice in Oberursel: this city, with its great climate, is known to be a lovely place to start a trip to the Heilklimapark Hochtaunus. The practice also has additional treatment rooms in the centre of Frankfurt am Main. Two top locations for everyone looking for experts in the field of plastic and aesthetic surgery.
The Oberursel location is home to the Centre for Outpatient Procedures. At this location, operations are carried out on an outpatient basis under general anaesthetic and local anaesthetic. Inpatient procedures are carried out by the consultants at Krankenhaus Bad Soden, which is a full-service hospital. The practice in Frankfurt is a private practice and consultations and aesthetic facial treatments take place there.
The expertise of the consultants in the field of plastic and aesthetic surgery includes aesthetic and reconstructive breast surgery, reconstructive surgery after weight loss or pregnancy, aesthetic facial surgery –, in particular neck and jaw tightening procedures and eyelid surgery, – and reconstructive facial surgery after tumours or nerve paralysis. The consultants are also experts in aesthetic liposuction and liposuction for lipoedema, as well as hand surgery.
Mission statement: clear practice philosophy
The practice has a mission statement: In addition to honesty, authenticity and empathy, this includes trust, expertise and sensitivity. The consultants also look after all patients in the same way and try to be there for them. Patients always receive individualised treatment here, which is adapted to their specific needs and includes personal support after the operation until the treatment has finished.
Procedures carried out with great care for both men and women
The experts carry out the operations using state-of-the-art techniques and in accordance with innovative international standards. To guarantee the consistently high quality, the consultants regularly attend national and international conferences and obtain further surgical training.
Area of expertise: Hand surgery
Another field of expertise at Plastic Surgery Frankfurt | Hochtaunus is hand surgery, as Dr Christina Luther is also a consultant in the field of hand surgery. Here too, the range of services on offer is provided at an international standard with safe procedures and low rates of complications. Comprehensive advice includes both the preparation aspects and aftercare tips. Whether a patient requires a procedure for a nerve compression syndrome, such as carpal tunnel syndrome or cubital tunnel syndrome, or a patient has a ganglion, rhizarthrosis or needs treatment for Dupuytren's contracture – the joint practice is an outstanding point of contact in the region for hand-related issues.
In addition to an experienced base of highly-motivated, dedicated and empathetic employees, the practice team is primarily made up of these four experts:
Dr. med. Zeynep Potente, consultant in plastic and aesthetic surgery (EBOPRAS). She studied in Frankfurt and, before the joint practice was established, she worked with Priv.-Doz. Dr. med. Klaus Exner as a Consultant and Senior Physician at the Clinic for Plastic Surgery, Reconstructive Surgery and Hand Surgery. Dr Potente is an expert in many different areas thanks to her numerous additional qualifications and courses on lymphology, lipoedema and aesthetic facial surgery.
Dr. med. Bianca Baican, consultant in plastic and aesthetic surgery, also studied in Frankfurt am Main – and was Chief Physician in the Department of Plastic Surgery, Reconstructive Surgery and Hand Surgery at Markus-Krankenhaus there. She has worked in emergency medicine, is an expert in trauma surgery and intensive care, as well as in abdominal, thorax and vascular surgery, and is also a specialist in the field of breast cancer and breast reconstruction.
Dr. med. Christina Luther is not only a consultant in plastic and aesthetic surgery, but is also a consultant in surgery and hand surgery. Before setting up in the joint practice at Plastic Surgery Frankfurt | Hochtaunus, she worked as a Senior Physician at the Clinic for Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery, Reconstructive Surgery and Hand Surgery at Markus-Krankenhaus – initially under Priv.-Doz. Dr. med. Klaus Exner, then in a senior capacity as Deputy Chief Physician in the field of hand surgery.
Dr. med. Livia Köhler, consultant in anaesthesiology, intensive care and emergency medicine, deals with the broad range of matters relating to anaesthesia – from intravenous anaesthesia to inhalation anaesthesia, intubation and laryngeal masks. In analgosedation, she ensures that spontaneous respiration continues where necessary. Dr Köhler also completed her degree in Medicine in Frankfurt. Before setting up in the joint practice, she worked as a Junior Doctor and Consultant at the Institute for Anaesthesiology, Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine at the city hospitals.
Two first-class locations are provided by „Plastic Surgery Frankfurt | Hochtaunus“: At the practice in Oberursel, consultations and procedures are provided for statutory health insurance patients and private patients – and the dedicated consultations for special indications and investigations are particularly popular. The spacious practice also includes the „Centre for Outpatient Procedures“, as well as treatment rooms for patient consultations, investigations and minor procedures. In addition to high-resolution ultrasound scanning facilities, with which breast implants, breast cancer and soft tissue in particular are investigated, the specialists also use the innovative PDE system at Hochtaunus: this allows the perfusion of tissue, lymphatic nodes and lymphatic tissue to be shown particularly well using imaging techniques. The PDE system (Photo Dynamic Eye) is also used, for example, to detect sentinel lymph nodes and to check circulation.
A state-of-the-art fractional CO2 laser, which can be used to remove benign skin changes and correct scars and stretch marks, is also used in Oberursel. In addition, this laser is used for skin rejuvenation in the facial area. There are two operating theatres for procedures, in which operations are carried out on the skin and soft tissue, as well as liposuction and aesthetic and reconstructive procedures in the head and neck area, on the chest and the trunk – plus hand operations. Patients may receive local anaesthetic, twilight sleep or general anaesthetic – depending on the nature of the procedure, the indication – and the patient’s wishes. It is great to have a consultant in anaesthesiology in the team! After the operation, patients are always provided with a peaceful recovery room with personal care.
Practice in Frankfurt am Main
The second practice is around twenty minutes away by car – the restored historic building, which is heritage-protected and located in the centre of the banking metropolis of Frankfurt am Main, is worth seeing. Patients benefit from the urban anonymity of the big city there – and feel at home in the modern and stylish private practice. However, patients hardly need to use the pleasant waiting area thanks to the advanced appointment planning system. That also helps with anonymity, which is valued here.
In the treatment rooms, which of course meet the highest hygiene standards, aesthetic procedures – such as fillers and volume treatments, for example with botulinum, i.e. Botox, are carried out after the patient has received a comprehensive individual consultation. Professional skin rejuvenation with radio frequency and „medical needling“ for collagen regeneration are also provided here by the experts.
Whether you visit the location in Oberursel or the metropolis of Frankfurt am Main in Hesse – you’re making a good decision by placing your treatment in the hands of these extraordinary experts. Expertise, a kind and friendly bedside manner and a practice team that lives up to the clinic’s mission every day – to focus entirely on the patient.
