- Facial surgery: face lift, eyelid lift (blepharoplasty), nose surgery (rhinoplasty), prominent ears (otoplasty), etc
Breast surgery (silicone implants, breast lift, breast reduction surgery, etc)

The Department also performs modern therapies with autologous fat grafting (fat-recycling), stem cells, etc, all of which help in rejuvenating the face and other body areas.
The whole spectrum of microvascular plastic surgery is covered, including:
- Surgical breast restoration with autologous tissue
- Oncoplastic breast surgery
- Lower extremities plastic surgery
- Surgical restoration following head and neck tumors removal
- Surgical nose restoration and rhinoplasty
- Surgical restoration of post-burn scar
hair removal, facial and body remodeling and firming, removal of benign lesions (verrucas, warts, papillomas, hyperkeratoses, radial lesions, condylomas, age spots, etc.), tattoo and acne scarring removal, cryolipolysis, etc.
The Stromal Enriched Lipograft™ (SEL™) method
involves the attachment of isolated stem cells from our body to the aspirated fat, while the fat tissue acts as a living biological tissue before its transfer to another body area. Today, the technique is used, among others, in the correction of inherited or acquired defects (e.g. post-burn deformities) and in breast reconstruction surgery following a mastectomy.
In aesthetic plastic surgery, the technique offers a safer option compared to injectable materials in the face and body area and breast silicone implants, contributing to the creation of functional tissue, which bears a more natural-looking appearance and entails less risks than the currently available options.
In every case, using tissue from our own body helps us avoid the possibility of graft rejection (until now, fat graft survival in traditional liposculpture is 20-30%) or suffering adverse reactions.
The Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Clinic at Metropolitan General is a Point of Reference both in Greece and abroad for its pioneering Stromal Enriched Lipograft™ (SEL™) technique. Patients from Europe, Asia and the USA choose and trust the Clinic for the specialized treatments it provides. Plastic surgeons from 12 different countries have visited the Clinic to witness live surgeries and receive training. Experienced, specialized physicians, associates to the Clinic, have a strong presence at international conferences and play a key role in medical advances, shaping the future of plastic surgery.
