Plastic, aesthetic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Heinz Wallner
“Form follows function” Dr. Heinz Wallner’s private practice for plastic surgery combines the best of two medical worlds – the safety of a modern clinic and the intimate and friendly atmosphere of a small practice – while the patient’s health is of the highest value and importance.

In our time, success and popularity are often linked to beauty. Many people exercise, but problem areas remain unaffectedand skin loses its elasticity while we age. Aesthetic surgery, however, is able to specifically target those problematic areas. Located on the Eastern shores of Lake Constance, the clinic’s principle is that beauty without health is only of questionable value. Dr. Wallner says: “There are limits as to what can be done because health should never be sacrificed for beauty. The trick is to sensibly implement the patients’ wishes with as little risk as possible, to specify the medically feasible and to point out the limitations, while not crossing those.”

After having served as medical director in the state hospital Feldkirch and as consultant at the renowned Bodenseeklinik in Lindau, Dr. Wallner established his own private clinic for plastic surgery in 2009.“It was my wish to advise and treat patients away from time pressure and rush. Only the intensive engagement with the patient’s wishes makes it possible to create an individual and suitable treatment plan and to achieve the best possible result,”he adds. Ideally situated in a discreet area of the interdisciplinary outpatient clinic of the state hospital Bregenz, the private clinic guarantees no waiting periods, benefiting from the advantage of a wide range of specialist doctors available in-house if required.

Whether a patient wants a facelift, abdominoplasty, tumor removal or a scar correction, Dr. Wallner always aims to enhance a positive physical feeling, while turning the client’s aesthetic vision into reality as precisely as possible.Turning back the clock without changing the patient’s expression is top priority for Dr. Wallner. www.plastisch-wallner.eu
