Reconstructive surgery

Reconstructive surgery is understood to be the restoration of body surfaces, shape and function following accidents, tumours or congenital deformities. Due to the diversity of defects in terms of size, type and location, a great variety of methods and microsurgical techniques are required to perform these procedures. The main focus of our department is microsurgical tissue grafting. The range of treatment options include:


  • Gentle removal of facial, head and neck tumours (using scar-saving techniques)
  • Reconstructive facial surgery (following tumours and accidents)
  • Facial reconstruction following paralysis of facial nerves (e.g. following injuries, tumours, etc.)


  • Treatment of deformities and asymmetries of mammary glands and nipples
  • Treatment of Poland’s and Amazon syndrome, tubular breast, etc.
  • Breast reconstruction using autografts: DIEP, SIEA, TRAM, S-GAP, TMG and latissimus dorsi flaps


  • Covering of defects using skin grafting techniques in connection with accidents, tumours, problematic wounds (pressure ulcers/decubitus), etc.


  • Covering of defects using skin grafting techniques in connection with injuries, tumours, problematic wounds
  • Reconstruction following peripheral nerve injuries (following accidents or constrictions)
  • Tendon transfer surgery in extremities following paralysis (paralysis of peroneal and radial nerve, etc.)

Urogenital plastic surgery

  • Sex reassignment surgery in connection with transsexualism
  • Reconstruction of genitals in connection with congenital deformities, tumours, traumas or subcutaneous injections

Burn surgery

Burns are injuries that require very intensive treatment and may lead to both permanent functional and aesthetic impairments if not treated properly. The restoration of the skin’s surface continuity as well as the function of the affected parts of the body often requires several years of treatment. Not least because of its expertise in microsurgery, the Department of Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery has dedicated itself to this task.

Our department treats not only minor, acute burns, i.e. in individual parts of the body and on extremities but also the consequences of burns. This comprises skin restoration, scar revision as well as the restoration of the function of extremities.
