Breast Surgery

Besides the frequent procedures for breast reduction and breast augmentation the rarer congenital malformations of the form or the volume of the breast –sometimes with a disturbing asymmetry as a consequence – are indications for plastic surgery. Breast reconstruction is one of the main focuses of my operative work. With my appointment for the professorship of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Vienna 1996 I could successfully establish the method of immediate breast reconstruction for breast cancer patients in Austria. By that the disfigurement by breast amputation is compensated by reconstruction of the missing breast in the same operation. My long lasting experience even with recent developments of operative techniques including microsurgical reconstruction is the basis for an individualized treatment plan after analysis of the local conditions and the personal needs of the patient.
