Experienced plastic surgeons
Mehiläinen’s hospitals employ experienced and professional plastic surgeons and other members of the staff. The processes of the operation rooms and other procedural units are based on strong expertise and modern methodology. After an operation, patients can stay at an inpatient ward for post-operative treatment, where our highly professional nursing staff will look after their well-being.
Mehiläinen has a long history of treating plastic surgery patients, as Mehiläinen’s hospital in Helsinki used to serve patients with a cleft palate. Mehiläinen has also been issued a quality certificate for its high quality of treatment. In addition, Mehiläinen has a strong multidisciplinary culture where members of the staff can consult each other and treat all health problems in a comprehensive manner.
Individual treatment plans by plastic surgeons
‘Patients can find plenty of information in advance online and from various magazines. There are also software programmes that can be used to outline the final results, but they do not often provide a realistic prognosis. In most cases, my patients ask me directly about what should be done. I tend to highlight the significance of a natural look. It makes more sense to perform a natural face lift instead of an operation that results in an excessively rigid look that can easily attract the unwanted attention of others. In other words, less is more,’ says Stephan Dietz, plastic surgeon, general surgeon of Mehiläinen Töölö.
‘All cases must be studied as objectively as possible. The most important thing is to find an appropriate solution to the patient’s personal problem. Nothing should be taken for granted. In most cases, patients are offered the possibility of a second or even third consultation regarding plastic surgery before making a decision regarding surgery. Sometimes it is a better idea to advance in small steps by administering injections, for example. Such procedures may include hyaluronic acid treatment or botulin injections, which are completely safe when administered correctly,’ says Dietz.
‘Only after listening to the patient’s wishes is it possible to tell the patient what can realistically be achieved. Any decisions regarding procedures are made together with the patient. This prevents the risk of multiple procedures when the patient realises that the result does not match their expectations. Patients must know all risks related to the procedure, even those that might occur in a worst case scenario,’ says Dietz.
