April 2013 Montreux - Felicia Smits (Amsterdam, The Netherlands)

“During my lasts months as resident in the Academic Medical Center Amsterdam I had the opportunity to visit Dr M. Pfulg in Laclinic Montreux Switzerland for a period of 3 months. I went there with the specific goal of learning a broad range of facial-lifting (from temporal, forehead to silhouette and cervico-facial lifts) and refining periorbital procedures. That I am comfortable by doing some of these procedures now by myself after this period surpassed my expectations. Dr Pfulg is a known founder of his own delicate techniques in these surgeries and really took the time to teach me in detail how to do these myself. During the three months of my stay we operated at least two facelifts, two nosejobs and multiple breastcorrection every week. In my opinion, carrying out the same procedures repeatingly in a short period of time is exactly what is needed as young plastic surgeon (or resident) to lift your skill-set to the next level. Although it was very delicate to get really ‘hands-on’ with his cosmetic clientele, Dr Pfulg ensured the patients were fully comfortable with me taking increasing ownership of their treatment. This fellowship has served as a 100% complementary stage in my development as a plastic surgeon; not only from a technical surgical point of view, but also in experiencing the way of working in a private clinic at the exclusive high level offered in Laclinic.”
