Which German clinics are the best for plastic surgery? Some excellent hospitals are listed here.

The aim of a reconstructive surgical intervention is the reconstruction of skin and tissue, which is often necessary after accidents, cancer diseases or congenital malformations. Of course, the aesthetetic aspect plays a major role in reconstructive surgery.

Nowadays, plastic surgery is no longer a taboo topic, says Prof. Dr. Giunta, expert for Reconstruction and former chairman of the German German Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (DGPRÄC). In social media, many users present the results of their cosmetic surgery in before-and-after pictures. Thus, they free plastic surgery from taboos.
