Modern face lift techniques have the central goal of correcting visible aging of the face. Professor Gassner is particularly concerned about natural and “non-surgical” looking results after face lift surgery.

The technique for taking fat from one part of the body and injecting it in another is known as Lipostructure, Liposculpture or Lipofilling. For example, fat from the belly area could be taken out and injected in the face.

Age-related changes to the skin around the eyes such as excessive eyelid skin, or bags and wrinkles below the lower eyelids can be corrected via eyelid surgery. For upper lids, usually a small strip of skin is removed.


The correct techniques for auricular surgery must be carefully selected and combined in order to achieve the best possible result.

Endoscopic forehead lifting is a minimally invasive method of rejuvenating facial surgery.  Visual scars are avoided as incisions are placed directly within the hairline.

Lipomas, Osteomas, non – resorbing Fillers and other lesions may show on the forehead or cheek and appear as lumps. The traditional way of removing such lesions is through an incision in the external skin, which leaves behind a scar. The endoscopic method first described by Dr. Gassner allows to remove forehead lesions without a visible scar. The incision line is placed in the hair bearing skin behind the hairline. For cheek lesions, the incision is placed through the mouth in the gum line.

Treatment with botulinum toxin (Botox, Vistabel, and others) has been the standard for wrinkle treatments (crow’s-feet, furrows in the brow, etc.) for many years. This medicine is safe and low-maintenance if used by an experienced doctor.

Defects of the facial skin are often the result of a removal of a tumor or an accident.  Depending upon the severity which includes the breadth, localization and depth, restoration of these soft tissue defects of the face is widely variable.

Scar revisions require a lot of experience.  Various aspects of skin colors are influential is their visability; including width and length.

Facial nerve paralysis is something that can occur in all stages of life.  The causes are manifold, as are the progression, forms and the prognosis.

There are various modern preparations for wrinkle injection. For example, hylauronic acid (Restylane, Juvederm) or hydoxylapatite (Radiesse). These preparations are widely used to smooth wrinkles in the facial area.
