DR PASCHOAL FELIPPE, professor (UFSC-Brasil)




Operations of all degrees of complexity on the face and body for rejuvenation and body shaping.

Eyelid corrections are always performed with muscle tightening.
Rhinoplasty is done with an open technique using visual guidance.
With facelifts, not only the skin but also the muscle structures are corrected – with minimal permanent scars.

Endoscopic plastic surgery (so-called keyhole surgery method) is used on the face for facelifts and on the body for breast augmentation, on the chest, abdomen and buttocks.
Liposuction is performed with High Definition (HD) so that the body shape is better defined.

Breast lifts can also be done for lack of volume combined with breast augmentation and minimal scars.

The tummy tuck is always performed with muscle tightening and the waist and hips are thus also included in the treatment.

Buttock correction with reshaping, buttock lift if required and possibly also the combination of lift and augmentation using autologous tissue or implants.

Correction of surgical scars with aesthetic improvements.

SOS – Secondary Optimisation of Aesthetic Surgery
Operation to improve surgical treatments already performed elsewhere. For this type of treatment, Professor Felippe is often regularly sought out by patients from distant places and countries.

 Innovations in plastic surgery by Prof. Felippe at Privatklinik Ritzensee


Minimally invasive plastic surgery

Facelifts and breast corrections with endoscopy or with small incisions are minimally invasive procedures offered by Prof. Felippe at Privatklinik Ritzensee.


Rhinoplasty – functional and aesthetic

Rhinoplasties are also performed in one session, in cooperation with the ENT Clinic, at the Ritzensee Private Clinic. Clarifications of functional problems and deformities are carried out using the latest video endoscopy and disturbances of the air valve passage are measured using “rhinometry” state-of-the-art equipment. This enables precise diagnosis and treatment.



Increasing patient complaints with “heavy and thick” legs are detected by the most modern lipoedema diagnostics.

Prof. Felippe carries out a structured diagnosis and treatment plan for lipedema at the Ritzensee Private Clinic.

This also includes follow-up treatment with the support of specially trained occupational therapists and medically trained masseurs.


Breast diagnostics cooperation – Tauern diagnostics and Prof Felippe, plastic surgery

Checks on breasts that have already been operated on, on “implant carriers” and also on patients with breast complaints can be carried out perfectly thanks to specialist plastic-surgical examinations and clarification using the most modern digital imaging procedures such as mammography and MRI. All “implant carriers” should routinely come in once a year for a check-up, regardless of whether they have complaints or not.
