The plastic surgery department at the Friedrichshafen Clinic in Germany performs surgical procedures to restore the shape and function of the body after illness, burns, accidents or age-related changes. Our plastic surgeons are masters of the art.
A plastic surgeon works very gently with the tissue of the human body. Our plastic surgeons work with a microscope or magnifying glasses and use the finest thread for sutures when performing plastic surgery, so as to ensure that no visible scars remain.
The Section for Plastic, Aesthetic and Hand Surgery at Friedrichshafen Clinic in Germany performs all types of plastic surgery:
Aesthetic surgery in Germany involves changes which the patient desires, but which are not indicated from a medical point of view. This area of plastic surgery is often referred to as “cosmetic surgery”. The plastic surgeon is purely concerned with improving the patient’s appearance.
Reconstructive procedures surgically restore functions of the body that have been lost due to injury, the removal of tumours or deformities. Typical examples are the hiding of defects by moving or transplanting tissue, nerve transplants or repositioning of sinews. The plastic surgeon usually performs such procedures by means of micro-plastic surgery.
Our Burns Centre deals with both acute and intensive treatment of burns and damage resulting from burns. In our clinic, reconstructive forms of plastic surgery are for burns and burn damage. Our plastic surgeons have a great deal of experience in this complex area of medicine.
This specialist area is concerned mostly with the treatment of injuries, deformities, and disorders of the hand and forearm.
Besides all the classical procedures in plastic and hand surgery, we now also use various highly specialised procedures and materials, some of which originate from the treatment of serious burns:
Some examples are: ReCell®, medical needling, Matriderm ®, Strattice TM, Suprathel®.
Our plastic surgery department works exclusively with highly reputable manufacturers when it comes to materials that remain in the human body for long periods or permanently, e.g. breast implants, wrinkle treatment, joint prosthetics.

Reconstructive surgery by definition involves the restoration of the body surface and contour after accident, burn or surgery of tumors. The resulting damage to or loss of body parts can massively restrict the person concerned in their professional and private lives as well as significantly affect their quality of life and satisfaction.
The aim of reconstructive surgery (definition: reconstructive surgery) is to restore or at least significantly improve the function and shape as well as the external appearance as completely as possible. Patients of all ages and practically every specialty are treated. To restore a variety of measures are necessary, depending on the size, location and nature of the defect; but also of comorbidities and age of the patient.
The technical possibilities range from a simple wound closure - stress-free, gentle and with very fine suture material for an optimal aesthetic result - to more complex interventions that require specialized skills such as skin grafting, defect coverings due to tissue displacement or transplantation, nerve grafting or tendon remodeling , For more complex defects, there are also various flap plasties available, in which lobes from skin and subcutaneous fatty tissue - or in larger defects involving fascia, muscle and bone - are transplanted.
An important basis of reconstructive surgery is microsurgery, which allows the connection of the finest vessels and nerves under the surgical microscope. Thus, tissue with a defined blood supply can be transferred from a healthy body site to the defect.
In the opinion of PD Dr. Ruggaber it is very important to know the various procedures and evaluate their use. Most of the reconstructive procedures are performed by the team themselves with great experience, otherwise they can refer highly experienced procedures or illnesses to experienced colleagues in the field.
Cour Departmenr of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery offers the full range of services, from head to toe, and for all ages:
Burns and scalds are among the most common and dangerous everyday injuries. Our Center of Reconstructive Surgery team specializes in the acute and modern care and aftercare of burns and their sequelae. Depending on the extent and severity, we treat them on an outpatient or inpatient basis. We also treat any late effects of burns or burns.
After breast cancer surgery, when the breast is partially or completely removed, women often desire a restored body image and an alternative to an uncomfortable and heavy breast prosthesis. Here are two possibilities for the reconstruction available: an implant or the structure of the breast with own tissue. Both are tissue-sparing interventions without large skin incisions. Due to the close cooperation with the gynecological clinic, the affected patients can be offered reconstructive possibilities right from the start, individually depending on the initial findings with implants, local flap plasties or only with own tissue using modern microsurgical surgical methods.
Tumors on the skin often involve highly visible areas of the skin that require surgical removal. Here it may be important for those persons to carry out reconstructive measures. In this way, self-esteem for public participation can be restored.
