Preserve instead of repair
is the philosophy of Dr Tatjana Pavicic MD
“By this I mean that patients who want to preserve their youthful appearance for a long time should start early with smaller treatsments. Most patients come at an age when the facial expressions already pronounced and the bothersome wrinkles are clearly visible. My aim is to make dealing with aesthetic treatments more a matter of course and to avoid the larger, more expensive interventions. The earlier slight corrections are undertaken, the more natural, the longer lasting and the more cost-effective the results are for the patients.”
The anatomy of a face, the speaking pattern, the proportions and the overall shape and expression are important for Dr Tatjana Pavicic. “I analyse each patient individually and as a doctor I establish a diagnosis and appropriate treatment plan before each treatment.”
Dr Pavicic is a medical specialist in dermatology and venereology with her own practice in Munich. She is an internationally leading expert in aesthetic dermatology with a specific focus on botulinum toxin, fillers, laser and energy-based devices and cosmeceuticals.
Dr Pavicic is a member of several national and international dermatological and cosmetic societies. She is the General Secretary of the International Peeling Society, board member of the International Society for Derm Surgery and IMCAS academy.
Dr Pavicic has published numerous articles in national and international scientific journals in the field of classical and aesthetic dermatology and has also conducted clinical studies in aesthetic dermatology and minimally invasive aesthetic surgery.
