About Dr. Scholz

Dr. Scholz

Dr. Scholz, plastic surgeon from Southern California, has a special interest in holistic treatment approaches as well as high-quality and individually composed therapy forms for his patients.

During his education and work in the USA he gained a lot of experience in modern methods of aesthetic and plastic surgery.

It is necessary to understand the techniques and algorithms of plastic surgery at the highest level in order to tailor treatment plans for each patient and together with the patient.

One of the very important concepts for a convincing result for Dr. Scholz is to listen carefully to the patient in order to fully understand and implement the wishes, concerns, questions and hopes of his patients.

It is a fascinating and particularly rewarding process to work together with an extremely well-informed patient and develop a treatment strategy together to achieve your esthetic and restorative goals.

Having worked in Southern California for the past nine years, Dr. Scholz believes that customer service is the most valuable asset in his work.

Carerr

Dr. Scholz started his studies in Mainz, Germany. He passed his general surgical training at the University Hospital in Zurich, Switzerland. Later he worked 3 years as fulltime Director of the Research Institute and Center for Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine in Irvine California.

Private clinic in Munich

After a long stay abroad Dr. Scholz is happy to provide in Munich, Bavaria his clients with innovative and supreme methods in aesthetical surgery. Inspired by his work in south california the clinic is called SIGNATURE AESTHETIC.
