Plastic Surgeries: Individual consultations to find the right treatment to meet your individual needs


Between the ages of 35-65, the skin starts to lose elasticity, exhibiting signs of sagging. This is a normal development. The effect of this is often that the face looks very tired, particularly in the cheek area as well as the area around the eyes. Patients will often request an upper eyelid correction to make the eyes appear brighter. Additionally, many patients will notice a change in the cheek area. The cheeks appear to slide downward and form what some may refer to as jowls. The nasolabial folds, also known as ‘smile’ or ‘laugh’ lines, deepen and dag causing the face to appear sullen and tired.

A special type of an abdominoplasty, is the abdominal corset lift according to Abel-König, is a technique to model the midsection, rejuvenate the waist, and to firm the abdominal part (belly).  In the past, it took three separate surgeries, namely the modulation of muscle or tummy tuck, the tightening of connective tissue, and the removal of excess skin. During an abdominal corset lift, these areas are covered in one single surgery.

For beauty under the knife – is there really a guaranty for success?

Sweating in the Fitness Studio is much more tedeous as for example a liposuction or tomy tuck. Delicious food - eating and drinking excessively - is yet another obstacle in the effort to lose those extra pounds.

Very fine, almost invisible scars carry a "well-kept secret". This claim motivated the plastic surgeons Dr. Rainer Abel and Dr. Michael A. König at the KLINIK am RING to not only develop a new type of surgery first introduced in the United States, to perfection, but also to develop their own special instrument for this procedure.
