Dr Montanari is one of Bochum's best doctors in the "Beauty" category

WAZ Bochum's best doctors

Dr Michaela Montanari was named one of Bochum's best doctors in the "Beauty" category in an article in the WAZ (issue 19.03.2024).

The article refers to the analyses of Munich Inquire Media (Gute Ärzte für mich/stern).

"Am I beautiful?" Dr Michaela Montanari in a three-part NDR documentary series

The three-part NDR documentary "Bin ich schön?" (Am I beautiful?) takes a sensitive look at the perception of beauty, subjectively perceived flaws and the risks involved through the eyes of a wide range of people. Whether it's Miriam and Paulina, who want to feel good in their bodies again and therefore want to undergo surgery, or Luise and Thommy, who prefer minimally invasive rejuvenation methods, or even prominent social media influencers, who openly discuss their treatments as well as bad decisions in the programme. 

Experts such as Dr Michaela Montanari in her role as a board member of the DGÄPC and as a specialist in plastic and aesthetic surgery, psychologist Dr Juliane Tank and many others will comment on and shed light on the topic.

We say: Very worth seeing!
