Beauty through science Dr. med. Jens Kauczok is one of Germany’s leading specialists for aesthetic, plastic and reconstructive surgery. Since April 2014, he has been heading his own surgery in his hometown of Würzburg. Based on his long-standing experience and comprehensive training at internationally renowned institutions, Jens Kauczok can offer the whole range of plastic and aesthetic surgery, including solutions for patients who have already undergone previous surgical procedures. Describing his focus, he says: “I’m not only specialising in conventional, aesthetic surgery interventions but also in more difficult cases that are often referred to me by colleagues when the previous surgery result has not been satisfactory.” In recent years, Jens Kauczok has perfected a method of breast augmentation, using specially coated implants that result in a natural breast shape while at the same time reducing certain risks.

ed from body fat and volume deficits filled with autologous fat. The combination of these techniques has a rejuvenating and firming effect, without the patient’s facial features being changed. The 4D facelift avoids over-correcting of problem areas, an “unnatural” facial expression and facial features that look operated on. “After all, my patients don’t want to look different but appear fresher and younger,” stresses Jens Kauczok.
