Our Treatments and Procedures
Dupuytren's Contracture (Hand Surgery)
This surgery is performed by a plastic surgeon or a surgeon who also does hand surgery. The plastic and reconstructive procedure for Dupuytren’s contracture gives good results if the surgery is performed on time and if adequate post-operative rehabilitation has been carried out.

- Second, it is connected with other diseases of fibromatous kind, including also Peyronie’s disease and the plantar fibromatous (Ledderhose’s disease).
Buttock Lift and Sculpting
Buttock lift is a cosmetic-reconstructive procedure, which brings the buttocks into their original shape, which due to age or after weight loss have seriously deteriorated. Buttock lift can successfully be combined with liposuction by which the body is sculpted and rejuvenated. this is necessary as buttocks has lost skin elasticity, and no other procedure can bring back to its previous condition. Such changes occur as a result of the natural aging process, and they are frequent in very young women after slimming.
The cosmetic Calf Augmentation is required in cases when the muscular mass volume is reduced from the calf as a result of an illness and injury, or for purely esthetic reasons.
The cosmetic augmentation of the calves uses silicone implants for the lower leg. If the indication is justified, and properly selected implants placed in the right position, the surgery will give very effective results.
Buttock augmentation is a cosmetic surgical procedure by which specially designed prostheses are inserted between the two layers of the gluteal muscle. This cosmetic surgery considerably changes the form of the buttock and the size and proportions in relation to the rest of the body.
The insertion of gluteal implants also resolves hereditary and acquired deformities of the gluteal region. Buttock augmentation helps sculpt the body and make it more proportionate. The surgery can be performed at any age, but elderly candidates must also be informed about some other possibilities for buttock shaping such as lifting and buttock lift surgery.

The skin of the face is exposed to all kinds of atmospheric influences, harmful substances from the environment. For this reason the skin of the face ages fastest. While the other parts of the body are covered by clothes, the face is always exposed to looks.
External factors have adverse effect on the elasticity of the skin, and some bad living habits will accelerate the aging process.
This procedure removes the wrinkles from the forehead, face and neck, acne scars and other processes, minimizing the signs of aging. Face lift is not recommended to women under 40, unless there is a justified need or the expressed wish of the patient.

Skin Lesions and Biopsy
The treatment of skin tumors depends on their characteristics. Some are excised for cosmetic reasons, especially if they are on the face. Others are excised because they represent such a diseased group of tumors that surgery is required.
Moles are a large and complex group of round efflorescences on the skin with intensified pigmentation. They appear at birth or during lifetime. This skin growth does not change during lifetime or grows proportionally with the area of the body where it is located. They can be benign, but mechanical stimuli and micro-trauma are particularly dangerous because they can lead to a malignant change.
Malignant skin cancer is called melanoma. It is usually dark brown or black. Its color originates from the cumulated pigment of melanin. It primarily appears on the skin, more frequently on the face, legs (particularly on the feet) or on the genitalia, but it can also appear on any other part of the skin.
