Dr. Dominik L. Feinendegen (MD)

Dear Patients and Visitors,


I would like to warmly welcome you to our clinic website. My Team and I are glad that we have drawn your interest. We are passionate about trying to fulfil your individual wishes and requirements in the realm of reconstructive, plastic and aesthetic surgery. Individually targeted and flexible treatment options are an integral part of the open and honest relationship we aim to share with our patients. For myself beauty represents, amongst other things, individuality and individual shaping of the body and face. For that reason, I personally advise you in one or more discussions and consultations in order to create the best result possible for you. I draw personal great pleasure from my work, not only in maximising what you achieve from the surgery, but also from helping my patients have greater self-esteem, a new attitude to life, and more happiness and satisfaction in general.

My team and I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to our clinic.

Yours faithfully,

Dominik L. Feinendegen
