In today’s world, a beautiful body becomes more and more important in society. This attitude is also owed to the media. This is why some people present themselves far more easily in a self-confident way in their everyday life and at work than others might do. Only few people are lucky to have a body that is naturally beautiful.
Still, many people experience a high level of emotional stress or witness a change in their bodies due to significant weight loss or pregnancies. There are also people who have a slim upper body but who suffer from massive fat deposits in their legs. This, again, can lead to dissatisfaction and emotional stress. This is where our specialists for plastic, aesthetic and reconstructive surgery at the Park-Klinik Birkenwerder/Berlin can help.
Body treatments at Park-Klinik Birkenwerder/Berlin:
Lipoedema is a pathological change in adipose tissue that can lead to a significant reduction in quality of life as it progresses. As a rule, only women with lipedema are affected. The starting point of the disease is usually a first hormonal changes, such as onset of puberty, pregnancy or menopausal – the menopause: during these hormonal upheavals of the woman there are shingling fatty tissue proliferation typical for the disease: thighs, lower legs, inside of the knee, Hips, buttocks and also arms. The affected fat cells are inflated by the associated with the disease Lymphflüssigkeitsstau. Thus, in advanced lipoedema, e.g. In stage 3 grotesque body forms with overhanging skin-fat-lobes develop, which are then also in addition to the restriction of movement associated with considerable pain.
Change fat without surgery? – Yes, by cryolipolysis! It is a non-invasive method of treating local fat deposits with cold. This has been used for soft cooling of fatty tissue in the US for several years in the aesthetics and dermatology. Developed by scientists at Harvard Medical School (USA), cryolipolysis is based on scientific findings that fat cells are more sensitive to cold than other cell types. This effect is made use of specifically and thus enables a fat cell treatment without surgery.
Unwanted fat deposits in specific parts of the body can only be reduced to a limited extent by exercising and self-discipline. Liposuction can help. Fat accumulations are reduced, the silhouette is reshaped and the overall appearance is slimmer and firmer. In some cases, even cellulitis can be reduced in respective areas. You feel attractive again and more confident. Liposuction is a relatively low-risk intervention, when performed by an experienced surgeon.
Everybody would like to have an attractive and svelte appearance. A pregnancy or significant excess weight can cause the skin’s elastic fibres to tear and can lead to an overstretching of the skin. After childbirth or a major weight reduction the overstretched skin stays as it is and cannot be reduced by exercising either. A lifting of the abdominal wall can give you back your svelte silhouette.
The baby is here and you are overjoyed. You have already started sports again, have a healthy lifestyle and mindful treatment of the body as a whole. However, sport, good nutrition and discipline often do not lead to a beautiful body silhouette that corresponds to the lifestyle after the birth of a child. The reason for this is skin damaged by overstretching. In the area of the breast, breastfeeding also makes the breast look empty and limp. In these cases, a mummy makeover can help.
The bodylift is a tightening of the entire skin that surrounds the middle of the body. This means that both the abdomen and the back are freed from annoying, overhanging skin during the body lift, and the body contour is restored. A body lift is necessary if, after extreme weight loss, too much damage is left because the skin is overstretched and therefore unnecessary.
The thigh lift is an operative procedure for tightening and improving the contour in the area of the thighs. It is a suitable method if the elasticity of the skin on the legs has decreased and the fat content is rather low. With a pronounced fat content, the tightening can be combined with liposuction.
Excess skin on the upper arm is mostly due to either significant weight loss or natural sagging of connective tissue over the years. This excess skin can be easily removed by an arm lift. The result of the procedure is quickly visible and sustainable. Of course, you can also contribute by maintaining your firm upper arms in shape after surgery.
Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) can strongly impede the social life of affected persons. Muscle relaxants often only lead to a temporary improvement. Sweat gland suction can offer long-lasting and effective help. The suction of sweat glands is a more gentle method than their excision, however, it bears a certain risk of not completely eradicating sweating. Both procedures are performed at Park-Klinik Birkenwerder/Berlin.
The butt augmentation with autologous fat is a new and real alternative to the use of silicone. The big advantage is the natural appearance and the absence of visible scars. In addition, the procedure is associated with much less pain. Human fat cells (adipocytes) are up to 0.1 mm in size and have a lifespan of probably 4 to 6 weeks. They are attached to so-called pre-adipocytes, which are stem cells from which constantly develop new fat cells, so that the fatty tissue is continuously renewed. 1 gram of human adipose tissue contains approximately 550000 stem cells.
The inner, non visible labia minora are usually covered by the outer labia, the labia majora. In enlarged labia minora (hypertrophy) caused by individual pre-disposition, or childbirth or as a consequence of tissue sagging, these exceed the labia majora. This can lead to aesthetic or functional disorders. The reduction of the labia is a common female genital procedure and usually without any problems.
Sun damage, acne, benign times: The range of unsightly skin lesions is large. Especially in the face they are usually perceived as disturbing. Pigment disorders, scars, liver spots and all other skin changes can be detected in the Park-Klinik Birkenwerder/Berlin are treated. Even malignant tumors with foothills into the depths can be removed.
Any deeper injury to the skin leaves a scar. In the best case, this fades over time to an inconspicuous line, in the unfavorable case arise wide and cosmetically unsatisfactory scar plates or so-called keloids, this means bulging, painful or itchy scar strands that can grow beyond the spread of the actual scar further.
Laser skin resurfacing is gentle and meet the high demands on modern and aesthetically satisfactory treatment methods. Properly applied, the laser can be an alternative to other procedures, but often its effective complement. Thus, we can remove superficial lasers thin layers of skin and, for example, Smooth wrinkles or permanently remove hair.
Pain in the knee or thumb? A complex operation does not always have to be. If it crunches and crackles with everyday movements or sports and even pain comes to it, then many patients wish there was a miracle cure, which remedies. Hope is based on stem cells. Dr. med. Klaus Ueberreiter, chief physician of the Park-Klinik Birkenwerder: “The fat stem cell therapy is best suited for patients with middle arthrosis and middle age. They are not eligible for a cartilage transplant, but they are too young for an artificial joint.“
