In recent decades, aesthetic procedures have become an integral part of the specialty of dermatology. Dermatologists have introduced and helped perfect a wide variety of aesthetic operations and other treatment approaches. During one decade I worked at the Rosenpark Klinik in Darmstadt, a well-known private clinic for aesthetic dermatology and plastic surgery, I was able to acquire extensive experience in this area. The founder and director of the Rosenpark Klinik, Dr. Gerhard Sattler, is renowned worldwide for his expertise; I was lucky enough to have him as a teacher and then colleague.
My special areas of expertise are body styling using liposuction with tumescent local anesthesia both for cosmetic indications and to treat conditions like lipedema, as well as in minimally-invasive facial rejuvenation. The mainstays of this approach are the injection of a variety of fillers and autologous fat to remove wrinkles and restore volume, as well as using botulinum toxin to block muscles of facial expression, also reducing wrinkling. I am also experienced in using a variety of modern devices such as fractionated lasers and intense pulsed light sources as well as radio frequency and ultrasound devices to smooth and tighten skin in a non-invasive fashion, complementing other methods of facial rejuvenation.
