“A good plastic
surgeon should also be an artist”

When I was a young man, I travelled to Brazil, where I had the opportunity to get to know one of today’s leading plastic surgeons and watch him work. It was Prof. Ivo Pinanguy in Rio de Janeiro. I owe my fascination with this medical discipline to this great man and colleague and I decided to follow in his footsteps. During my medical studies and later on in my speciality training, I had the honour of learning and working there as well as in other reputable departments of our specialist field in New York, Dallas and Munich. I am truly beholden to all my teachers and role models to this very day. Today, I pass on my expertise to young colleagues and students who come to us from all over the world to gain work experience.

Plastic surgery combines scientific ambition, surgical skills and artistic talent in a unique way. This fascination has continued to this day and I can say from the bottom of my heart that my profession has filled me with great pleasure and pride every single day I have been allowed to practice it in my long career. I hope very much that I will be able to continue doing so for a long time.
