After my Study of Medicine at the Ludwigs-Maximilians-University of Munich (1988-1995), I began my Resident time (1995-2003) in the Department of Plastic- Aesthetic, Reconstructive and Hand Surgery at the Hospital of Munich-Bogenhausen (head of department: Wolfgang Mühlbauer, Prof., MD since 11/2003: M. Ninkovic, Prof., MD), also working for 9 years in the Center of Burn Injuries (ICU).

1997 Resident for a few months in the department of Orthopedics at the German Army Hospital of Ulm (head of dept.: R. Reiter, MD).

In the years of 1997-1998 I enjoyed further education as Resident in the Department of Anatomy at the Ludwigs-Maximilians-University of Munich (head of dept.: R. Putz, Prof, MD) where I had the chance to deepen my anatomical knowledge and my scientific work and to educate young students. Here I wrote my dissertation in 1998.

Since 2003 I became consultant in the department of Wolfgang Mühlbauer, Prof., MD of Plastic Surgery.

In november 2004 I decided due to my addiction to the aesthetic plastic surgery to work together with Yoram Levy, MD, first in the Partnachklinik Garmisch-Partenkirchen and now in a very close partner- and friendship with Yoram in our Clinic (Aesthetik am Ammersee Dres. Levy-Schrank) at the Ammersee. We are focused in Aesthtetic Surgery and have due to our extraordinary experience and number of operations the main focus in Face-Neck-Lift and Forehead-Brow-Lift Surgery. Together we developed the “upper face lift”.


Multiple lectures and live-op-demonstrations on national and international congresses, several research papers in Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery and publications concerning the Face and Breast Surgery.
