Implantate im Gesicht, Gesichtsimplantate - Interview mit Dr. Michael Kremer (1403 words)
Kremer, wann kommen Gesichtsimplantate in der Praxis zum Einsatz?

Kremer: Davon gehe ich aus, denn schon bei der Beratung sind Spezialkenntnisse aus der Anthropologie und der Kieferorthopädie sowie genaue Kenntnisse der Gesichtsanatomie notwendig, um einen sinnvollen Behandlungsplan zu erstellen.
