The Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery department corrects the function and shape of a body part. A distinction is made between reconstructive and aesthetic surgery.

The team

Dr. De Frene focuses on general plastic and aesthetic surgery, breast reconstruction with autologous tissue and microsurgery.

Plastic surgery is a discipline that focuses on:

  • Aesthetic or cosmetic surgery performed to restore the shape but also the function of a certain body part. Examples include facelifts, eyelid surgery, eyebrow lifts and skin resurfacing, various wrinkle corrections, rhinoplasty, ear correction, scar correction, liposculpture, thigh lift, arm lift, breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast lift and abdominoplasty...
  • Reconstructive or restorative surgery aims to correct abnormal structures of the body due to developmental abnormalities, congenital defects, accidents, infections, tumours or other signs of disease. Usually, these procedures are performed to improve functions or to come as close as possible to a normal appearance. An example is breast reconstruction after amputation.
