BEFORE | AFTER

The portrayal of before and after images is strongly regulated in Germany.  Only images of a reconstructive and therefore “medically indicated” procedure may be publicized.  All patients shown here have given their written informed consent to share their results.  All patients were operated by Dr. Gassner.  Results of cosmetic operations, such as aesthetic nasal correction, eyelid correction or face lifts are not listed due to the legal restrictions.  However, cosmetic interventions represent the largest proportion of operative procedures that Dr. Gassner performs.  During your consultation with Dr. Gassner, you will be shown a large number of before and after photos of nasal corrections, face lift or eyelid procedures.

Streched Lobes (Tunnel/Plug)

Plaques cause defects of the lobule. Often, large holes result. Correction of these defects requires a surgical procedure under local anaesthesia.
