• Breast Surgery

    The breast represents femininity, sexuality and motherhood. It changes a young girl visibly into a woman and often triggers the first faint suspicion of a pregnancy. A diseased breast causes massive physical and mental stress for the person concerned. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women worldwide. Nonetheless, in contrast to previous years, the diagnosis of breast cancer is no longer synonymous with incurable disease. All important then is that the patient is confident that she is in good hands. 
    With us you are in good hands. Wherever possible, we use breast-conserving surgical techniques. If for medical reasons a removal of the breast cannot be avoided, we offer our patients an immediate breast reconstruction with either implants or their own tissue. If this immediate reconstruction for whatever reason is not possible or not desirable it can be done at a later stage after the initial wound healing is complete. In these cases of immediate or delayed breast reconstruction, we involve our partner Prof. Dr. Boris Todoroff, specialist in plastic and reconstructive surgery to achieve the cosmetically optimal results.

    Breast Surgery in Men

    Gynecomastia is the enlargement of the mammary gland in men. This disease is often perceived by the affected men as embarrassing and can lead to some significant disruption of self-confidence. Often this pathology is surgically correctable through a small incision in the areola (areola) or through the infra-mammary fold. 

    However – apart from the cosmetic aspect – one has got to remember that also in the male breast cancer can occur. This is much less common than in women and is thus often diagnosed late. Typical of cancer-related breast enlargement in the male is the acute, unilateral occurrence of pain and a feeling of tension. 

    In all these cases urgent medical advice should be sort.
