Grand Resort Bad Ragaz partners with expert in aesthetic facial surgery
Grand Resort Bad Ragaz has announced the arrival of Professor Hermann F. Sailer to its internationally renowned Medical Health Centre. One of the world's most experienced and respected experts in aesthetic facial surgery, Sailer is favoured by celebrities and key public figures worldwide for his expertise in plastic surgery, and his revolutionary "Reverse Facelift" and "Rotation Advancement" (a sleep apnea treatment).
The Medical Health Centre at Bad Ragaz invests in leading medical professionals to ensure the resort maintains its long-standing position as Europe's highly regarded well-being and medical health resort. The appointment of Professor Sailer, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, illustrates Grand Resort Bad Ragaz's commitment to expanding and enhancing its areas of medical expertise, and to providing its guests with a variety of unique and life-changing medical services.
According to the media announcement, Professor Sailer's Reverse Facelift opens up a new dimension for "incomparable enhancement in attractiveness". Natural facial expressiveness is retained and patients are left with a more youthful, striking appearance. In his "Rotation Advancement" the lower and upper jaw is rotated forward, automatically extending the upper respiratory tract. This cures a sleep apnoea which is a type of sleep disorder caused by narrow airways. Both procedures are carried out from inside the mouth, leaving the patient without any post-surgery scarring.
Grand Resort Bad Ragaz offers guests a range of advanced beauty-enhancing treatments designed to suit all needs and skin-types. These offerings range from dermatology and medical skin care, plastic surgery, dentistry, as well as classic beauty and wellbeing spa treatments, and holistic therapies. Set against the backdrop of the beautiful Swiss Alps and fresh alpine air, Bad Ragaz is a tranquil setting for those wishing to recuperate post operation.
Beauty treatments currently offered by Professor Sailer at Bad Ragaz include natural increase in both lip and face volume - resulting in a longer lasting effect without a lifting procedure - chin corrections, nose enhancements, upper and lower lid corrections, eyebrow lifting, and other forms of face remodeling, such as the creation or modulation of cheekbones at Grand Resort Bad Ragaz.
