Plastic surgery at a Swiss villa The Klinik im Spiegel is located in the idyllic residential area of Spiegel, near Bern’s beautiful old town. The centre of excellence for aesthetic and plastic surgery is led by Dr. med. Andreas Tschopp. A high volume of women, as well as many men, now turn to the experienced surgeons here, and benefit from the fact that everything happens under one roof in this clinic.
His practice partner, Dr. Kim, is specialised in breast and genital surgery, while Professor Kalbermatten has a broad range including reconstructive surgery: after breast cancer, for example.

“We are a clinic that can offer everything under one roof. We have day clinic facilities and in-patient beds on the first floor, and the practice downstairs,” Dr. Tschopp explains. “Such an autonomous unit bears many advantages. A patient once said to me: your clinic is a work of art on all levels!”
For 17 years, the Klinik im Spiegel has been specialising in aesthetic surgery and, thanks to the ever-expanding experience gained and high amount of cases worked on, they are able to offer procedures of excellent quality. The modern, converted art-nouveau villa offers the perfect environment for the entire range of aesthetic procedures, including everything from small corrections of wrinkles to hospital stays lasting a few days. Time and again, patients have been impressed by the clinic’s professional atmosphere – in terms of both the sensitive team of surgeons and nurses, as well as the surgical results themselves. The clinic was founded by Dr. med. Andreas Tschopp and his father Prof. 20 | Issue 77 | August 2019
Hans Tschopp, who is now enjoying retirement. For Andreas Tschopp, it was always clear that he would follow in his father’s medical footsteps: “The aesthetic challenge fascinates me. It’s not just a functional kind of surgery but it’s also a modelling one.” The commitment to meet every individual wish serves as daily motivation here. Aside from Dr. Tschopp himself, Dr. Kim and Professor Kalbermatten are also part of the competent surgeon team. “Due to the fact that we’re three plastic surgeons who each offer a different range of procedures, we are able to cater to every patient’s needs,” Dr. Tschopp adds. His personal focus is on aesthetic face surgery, such as nose surgery, facelift or eyelid surgery.
The clinic follows a coherent concept and only personally-selected staff ever work here. Furthermore, the location, in a quiet residential area of Bern, offers a certain amount of discretion, which is always appreciated by patients. It’s most certainly a place worth keeping in mind.
