Dr. Uwe von Fritschen has been the Chief Physician of the Department of Plastic and Esthetic Surgery, Hand Surgery at the Helios Emil von Behring Hospital since 2007 and is a specialist in plastic and esthetic surgery and a specialist in surgery and trauma surgery. Previously, he was the Principal Consultant and Deputy Director of the Department of Plastic Surgery, Reconstructive and Hand Surgery at the Markus Hospital in Frankfurt. Thanks to a highly qualified team under Chief Physician Dr. von Fritschen and the most advanced techniques, esthetic procedures and complex microsurgical reconstructions are performed reliably and with the best results in the Department of Plastic and Esthetic Surgery, Hand Surgery at the Helios Emil von Behring Hospital. As a Reconstructive Breast Center, certified by the German Plastic, Reconstructive and Esthetic Surgeons’ Association (DGPRAeC), the Department can provide the entire range of breast surgery. Together with the health aspects, their focus is on esthetics, particularly where, for example, the reconstruction of breast tissue following cancer-related amputation is concerned. Dr. von Fritschen and his team treat their cancer patients with particular care. Here, microsurgical breast reconstruction using autologous tissue takes center stage. Together with the very natural surgery results, thanks to the low-risk techniques, potential rejection reactions to the foreign material are minimized. Targeted liposuction, skin tightening of the abdomen, the thighs or the upper arms are likewise performed under the guidance of Dr. von Fritschen. Patients diagnosed with lipedema or genetic fat distribution disorders can be helped by means of WAL liposuction. This water jet-assisted liposuction dissolves fat cells from the tissues with an intense, extremely narrow water jet. The result is evident immediately after the procedure and no larger collections of fluid remain in the body. In humans, tumor conditions, injuries due to accidents or simple aging processes can lead to the visible breakdown of facial nerves, unsightly slackening or deformation. Thanks to his high-quality work in plastic surgery, Dr. von Fritschen brings self-confidence back to his patients. Whether facelift, endoscopic forehead lift, temple lift or brow lift, the therapeutic spectrum is vast and is always individually fine tuned with the patient. Dr. Fritschen is the Vice Chairman of the Berlin State Association of the German Plastic, Reconstructive and Esthetic Surgeons’ Association (DGPRAeC), a member of the Advanced Training Committee of the Berlin Medical Association, head of German national quality assurance for reconstructive breast surgery of the DGPRAeC and the scientific advisor of the BRCA Network (BReast Cancer Network).
