Four years ago, Wouter Van Deun was in training at Isabelle Nolens’ private clinic for aesthetic plastic surgery. “I immediately noticed that she works differently than many other plastic surgeons,” he says. Today they are associates in the successful clinic. “You can compare us with a five-star hotel. Everything is taken care of, the patient does not need to worry. The results of our cosmetic surgeries are always very natural.” Five-star treatment is the private clinic’s specialty. “We want the patient to feel like everything is taken care of. That they are taken care of.” Every aspect is important: the first visit, the cosmetic treatment or 66 | Issue 34 | October 2016

Dr. Van Deun describes his team as very skilled and punctual. “All team members are carefully selected and are educated at our clinic. They care a great deal about our patients and work hard to give every patient the attention they need to feel their best.” “Most clinics share the values we have. However, what sets us apart from others is

Many clinics will give the patient what they want, even if it is not what is best for them.” Dr. Van Deun illustrates: “For example, look at a patient wanting a breast augmentation.
