Expert medical care at hospitals and rehabilitation clinics
The specialist field of plastic and aesthetic surgery is concerned with restoring form and function to areas of the body that have been damaged or destroyed by accidents or tumours. The harmonisation of physical features is another task of plastic surgeons. Members of the German Society of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (DGPRÄC) are highly regarded all over the world. This means that patients are guaranteed medical services of the highest standard all over Germany.
Plastic surgery enables limbs that have been completely severed – as well as individual fingers, noses, ears and genital organs – to be reattached to the body and reconnected to the blood and nerve supply.
In operations of microscopic precision, whole sections of tissue including muscles, bones, arteries, veins and nerves can be transplanted from one part of the body to another to correct physical defects.
Professor Eisenmann-Klein is the Director of the Clinic for Plastic and Aesthetic Hand and Reconstructive Surgery at the Isar Medical Centre in Munich. She is also President of the International Confederation for Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery (IPRAS).
The Isar Medical Centre is a private hospital in the centre of Munich which has highly qualified specialists in almost every field of medicine.
All medically certified aesthetic procedures are performed at the centre. A key specialism is surgery involving autologous fat transplantation, sometimes using stem cell concentrates from fatty tissue. Corrective breast surgery is a major focus and includes enlargements, corrections of asymmetries and abnormalities using fat from the patient’s own body or high quality silicone implants, and breast uplift procedures. Facelifts and neck lifts are also performed routinely, often combined with soft tissue relining, eyelid lifts, nose corrections, liposuction and thigh and upper arm lifts. Autologous fat transplantation, in some cases using stem cell enrichment, is a key element of the Aesthetic Surgery department’s treatment concept for the regeneration of the skin and soft tissue.
All procedures in this specialist field are undertaken, including breast reconstruction after breast cancer surgery (also often using fat from the patient’s own body), breast reductions, uplift surgery after extreme weight loss, correction of congenital abnormalities, removal of tumours from skin and soft tissue, revision of scars after burns or accidents using the most complex flap procedures and tissue grafting techniques, and covering of decubitus ulcers that manifest in paraplegic or elderly patients.
Hand and nerve surgery
The clinic specialises in the treatment of phantom pain suffered by amputees.
It also carries out the full range of procedures in the field of hand surgery.
The team regularly provides humanitarian aid in crisis areas and Third World countries. Through the IPRAS WomenforWomen project initiated by Professor Eisenmann-Klein, the clinic’s director and her second-incommand help to treat women who have been victims of fundamentalist intolerance or domestic violence (such as victims of ‘in-law burns’ in India, acid attacks in the Middle East and female circumcision in Africa).
The team at the clinic has acquired a high degree of intercultural expertise that stands it in good stead when treating international patients. This is thanks to its many visiting physicians and its cooperation with foreign doctors (e.g. from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Egypt, Brazil, Mexico, Yemen, Syria, India, Colombia and Armenia), who come to the department either to complete their specialist training or to gain additional experience as a specialist. In particular, all team members are trained to support patients and other employees in the practice of their religion.
A caring approach
It takes more than just modern medical procedures for treatment to be successful. Care, empathy and sensitivity to the patient’s psychological welfare are, of course, just as much part of any approach to treatment, especially as patients being treated by plastic surgeons have often had to cope with exceptionally difficult circumstances.
What travellers from around the world are saying
Em Neustadt tem a Kunsthofphpassage, que é uma passagem incrível. Ela tem vários prédios "temáticos". O azul por exemplo quando chove, a água nos canos vira música. Fora os prédios, ainda tem várias lojas bacanas e cafés charmosos para você aproveitar. #youngDresden #mustsees #shopping #cafésläs mer »

O Zwinger Palace é um dos melhores exemplos da arquitetura barroca tardia na Alemanha. Construído entre 1710 e 1728 pelo arquiteto Pöppelmann, o Palácio Zwinger foi usado para grandes festas e torneios. Hoje, o complexo barroco de pavilhões, galerias e pátios interiores é a casa de grandes museus e obras. A Madonna Sistina de Rafael você encontrará lá. O acervo de Porcelana tambem é belíssimo. O Arsenal também é muito interessante se você curte trajes e armas. Se você não quiser entrar em nenhum museu, vá pelo menos para andar pelos jardins e admirar o "Kronentor", que é o portão com a coroa.läs mer »
Setenta anos depois do bombardeio de Dresden, na Segunda Guerra Mundial, um panorama de 360 graus que mostra a cidade destruída foi revelado na cidade. O artista Yadegar Asisi criou uma imagem circular de 100 metros de largura e 30 metros de altura que mostra Dresden após os devastadores ataques aéreos dos aliados. Entre 13-15 fevereiro de 1945, apenas alguns meses antes do fim da guerra, os bombardeiros britânicos e norte-americanos destruíram mais de 90 por cento do centro histórico da cidade, matando cerca de 25.000 pessoas. Mais de 3.900 toneladas de bombas de alto poder explosivo e dispositivos incendiários dizimaram marcos importantes do barroco em uma cidade que é considerada "a Florença do Elba". O panorama, Dresden: 1945, fica aberto de 24 de Janeiro à 31 de maio de 2015, no gasômetro Panometer. http://www.asisi.de/en/panoramas/dresden-1945/photo-gallery.htmlläs mer »
Frauenkirche - Church of Our Lady
A Igreja da Nossa Senhora de Dresden é um espetáculo de linda. É a igreja que vai te impactar no primeiro minuto que você entrar e ver uma igreja branca, super luminada. Se há um lugar cuja história pode mover-lo às lágrimas, será n'a Igreja de Nossa Senhora. Durante a Segunda Guerra Mundial, a igreja foi bombardeada e ficou em escombros até 1994, quando um programa de restauração foi iniciado. Hoje, é um lembrete dos dias antes da guerra e um dos lugares que você vai ter uma história imparcial sobre a Segunda Guerra Mundial.läs mer »
Christmas Markets in Cologne
Christmas may be over, but 11 months from now the season will be upon us and you should spend 2015 in Germany! Why? The Christmas season is in Germany is like no other. There is no other place in the world where you can experience countless, and famous, Christmas markets that will without a doubt, put you in the holiday spirit. While the markets are open all day, it’s best to visit at night. Many towns across Germany have decorated the streets and market squares with evergreen-lined stalls, twinkling lights and religious (and not so religious) statues to kick off the holiday season as festively as possible. If you are a foreigner in Germany at this time of year, it's difficult to miss home when Germany puts on an excellent show at Christmas time. No matter what German city you are in, you can find families and friends of all ages, walking around shopping for unique and traditional gifts, sipping on mulled wine and indulging in delicious German food. You will hear laughter amongst the Christmas carols that will make you forget about your toes and fingers tingling from the cold temperature at this time of year. It’s truly a traditional delight for all of the senses. No trip to the German Christmas markets is complete without trying a class of glühwein, which is a combinations of red wine, spices and sugar. This traditional drink will keep you cozy and happy. Hungry? No problem! There are many stalls that sell traditional German Christmas Market food and snacks for you to enjoy such as bratwurst, mutzen, schmachtlappen and reibekuchen. In a world where Christmas present shopping consists of the latest technology and thoughtless gift certificates, it’s nice to be able to find traditional hand carved gifts at several stalls. Not to mention, mountains of oranges and nuts, the original gift that St. Nicholas gave to people hundreds of years ago at this time of year. While many countries around the world celebrate Christmas, no other place does it like Germany. So, if you feel that this time of year has been lacking in holiday spirit, take a trip over to this European country and be reminded what Christmas time is all about.läs mer »
Visiting a co-ed spa was a foreign concept to me, being born and raised in Canada. Nudity in my culture is reserved for your own home where some have issues looking at themselves in the mirror. The gym change room is another publicly acceptable nude room, many of us have mastered the art of undressing by using a towel without exposing our private parts. My wife, Kristen, and I walked into that spa and let go of our Canadian mentalities. I undressed in the co-ed change room next to a woman in her 60s. She had kind eyes, a warm smile and no knowledge of nude shame as she stripped down without embarrassment. Kristen and I entered the spa, dropped our towels and were liberated, free for all to gaze upon! There were adults of all ages and body type, casually conversing as if being nude was more comfortable than being clothed. I had to constantly remind myself that people are not judgemental of bodies here, something I have never experienced in North America. Nudity is very much a part of the culture here. This German spa was the first place I have experienced harmony and equality among class, age, sex. Nobody knows whether you walked in with an Armani suit or a ripped t-shirt, you are all equal, beautiful and free. I immediately felt unjudged and part of the community. The architecture and decor of the spa was heavenly. Stone tiles lead the way to a large open room with lounging chairs and a marble swimming pool. The ambiance is zen, with only the sound of calm conversations and light background music. Buddha heads, candles, bamboo designs and waterfalls decorate the many rooms with relaxation and beauty. The outdoor rooftop contained hot tubs and saunas to keep you warm and steamy as well as cold pools and a bucket of snow used to cool your body down before jumping back into the hot tub. I left with my body relaxed, my skin clean, and my mind at peace. I learned that the human body is a beautiful gift which should be appreciated and accepted. Nudity is our original state and should be more widely accepted.läs mer »
Herrenhauser Gärten Grotto
A couple of years ago a very wealthy friend of mine, who owns an work of art by French artist Niki de St.-Phalle, told me included Hannover in a trip to Europe just to see Nikki's art in town. I had totally forgotten this until I came to Hannover and found out that Niki's works are all over the place. There are three Nanas in the Sculpture Mile downtown and an ancient grotto at the Herrenhauser Gardens was redone by Niki, who filled with her Nanas, a colorful Ganesha and a myriad of kaleidoscopic mirrors. Before her death, she donated her private collection to Hannover's Sprengel Museum, and will appear in the new wing due to open late in 2016.läs mer »
