KNOWLEDGE IS A BEAUTIFUL THING
Although being a German native, Dr Knoll trained exclusively in the United States (Yale University) for her entire plastic surgery residency, after having graduated from medical school (J.W. Goethe University Frankfurt, Germany) and completion of 1.5 years of maxillofacial surgery training (University Medical Center in Frankfurt). Recognizing the advanced training in Plastic Surgery in the United States and basic science being fundamental to clinical care, Dr Knoll performed a two year research fellowship in molecular biology at Yale preceding her formal plastic surgery training at Yale University. The clinical and basic science research results related to aesthetic and craniofacial surgery are published as scientific publications, book chapters and presentations at leading professional meetings worldwide. Dr Bianca Knoll has trained and worked with some of the world leaders of plastic surgery and has received a broad spectrum training including all aspects of plastic surgery: aesthetic surgery, reconstructive surgery, burns, hand surgery and craniofacial surgery. Already at that time she had great ardor for primary and secondary / revision rhinoplasties, oculoplastic / eyelid surgery and craniofacial surgery. To further focus on rhinoplasty surgery Dr Knoll elected additional training with some of the best leaders and innovators, Drs Jack Gunter and Rod Rohrich in Dallas, Texas. This is also true for aesthetic surgery of the face and body with Drs Sherrell Aston, Glenn Jelks, and Alan Matarasso in New York, NY. Her training in craniofacial surgery and correction of craniosynostosis was mainly received by Dr John Persing, New Haven CT and Dr Eric Arnaud, Paris, France (see Curriculum Vitae).
The surgical experience and knowledge of Dr Knoll is advantageous for you in that, Dr Knoll has gained the perspective on the many, oftentimes confusing and conflicting, claims made related to therapeutic innovations, in both aesthetic plastic surgery and cosmetics, which may help to guide you through selecting what treatment options are best for you. Dr Knoll’s patients benefit therefore from her exquisite American and International professional network. Information and experiences about new techniques, outcomes and technology are often exchanged long before they are being published in professional journals or are available for the public in the media. Dr Knoll and her team stands out by their welcoming and professional demeanor, providing high standards while having the patients interests at heart.
The aesthetic surgery goal of Dr Knoll is to optimize your appearance to achieve an aesthetically balanced result. Dr Knoll’s personal philosophy in aesthetic surgery is that most people would rather see a natural, classically beautiful result, rather than an overdone, “operated” look. This requires a thorough understanding of aesthetic relations and/or the anatomical/pathologic changes associated with aging, and what methods are most likely to provide a true and long lasting improvement. This may require a combination of surgical and non surgical techniques, which should be based on your expectations, interests, health, and time commitments. Decision making may require some extended effort, something Dr Knoll and her team are happy to assist you with, and something they enjoy.
Reconstructive plastic surgery has some different requirements when compared to aesthetic plastic surgery. Dr Knoll wishes to provide you with the best possible functional result, coordinated with the most aesthetic result achievable. As a patient, or a parent dealing with a new diagnosis requiring surgery, decision making can be very stressful, impacting one’s own and/or other loved one’s lives. Therefore, Dr Knoll and her team truly feel obliged to help you by explaining reasons for various treatments and the options you have after cancer or trauma diagnoses which may benefit from reconstructive surgery. This is best achieved by collaborating together with you and your physicians in order to obtain the best treatment plan.
It is the goal to provide you with the best, safest and most recent advances in surgical care, whether this is related to aesthetic surgery or reconstructive surgery.
About 50% of Dr Knoll’s patients are English speaking. Frankfurt, Wiesbaden, and the Rhine-Main area became home for many people from abroad either working or living in Germany. Dr Knoll truly has an international mix of patients with different aesthetic, ethnical and medical concerns. Dr Knoll and her team understand that undergoing surgery in a foreign country can be very stressful and challenging due to language barriers, and differences in the medical system and culture. This is especially true for our international patients living out of town or abroad traveling to Frankfurt, to have their surgery performed. The Liliumklinik in Wiesbaden and the Main-Taunus Privatklinik in Bad Soden (nearby Frankfurt), were some of the cases are taking place, have an international patient management. Dr Knoll and her staff have set up an entire process to make this process safe, efficient and convenient for you. Through careful analysis and planning, Dr Knoll is committed to finding the best option for you.
