About Prof. Dr. Dr. Med. Mang

"The Pioneer" who, in spite of a 14-hour working day, never loses his alemannic cheerfulness and never forgets his family roots. "Stay the way you are".

Early in his career Prof. Dr. Mang soon recognized the fact that cosmetic surgery requires a very high degree of specialization and differs considerably from pure plastic surgery. While plastic surgery serves to heal the sick (e.g. burns, accident injuries) cosmetic surgery treats healthy patients, the standard operations in this case being distinguished mainly by nasal correction, facelifting, corrective eyelid surgery, ear correction, liposuction, breast surgery, hair transplantation, wrinkle injections, tummy tucks, upper arm- and thigh firming, vein surgery, dermabrasion and peeling. Thus Prof. Dr. Mang, in the same way as Professor Pitanguy in Brazil, has been instrumental in the pioneering of cosmetic surgery in Germany.

Prof. Dr. Mang’s main focus of attention was and is to offer honest, transparent and low-risk cosmetic surgery. It is essential to warn against setting expectations too high as well as the risk of complications (such as e.g. scarring, infection, thrombosis, embolies), all factors on which an aesthetic surgeon has little or no influence. Only when this surgeon is a specialist with additional training, an artist and psychologist all rolled into one can he hope to be successful with satisfied patients.
