Dr Roland Kolbe
Aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery
My wife Dr Anne Kolbe and I have worked together in a Saint-Pierre private practice since 1995. I went to school in Germany and then in Africa (Togo and Niger) which gave me a taste of the tropics. Currently I am studying at the Faculty of Medicine in Strasbourg. My internship then my clinical at the University Hospital Center (The Civil Hospital) in Strasbourg allowed me to acquire a diploma in General Surgery and Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery. To supplement my training I also specialized in surgery of the face and the neck as well as in microsurgery.
I did my military service as a volunteer technical assistance to CHD of Saint Denis in 1990. Then in 1991 I took care of patients especially injured and burned. It was during this first stay of 2 years that I developed my love for the Island and its people. I moved with my wife, who is a Dermatologist, and my two children in 1995 to St. Pierre.
We do business in a liberal common practice. My activity is dedicated to plastic surgery (skin cancer, breast, aftereffects of accidents, malformations, ect...) and focused on the aesthetics. The combination of our specialties can offer comprehensive care in facial rejuvenation technique like Injection of Hyaluronic Acid, Botulinum Toxin, peels, laser PRP, Tattoo removal, hair removal, treatment of acne, scars, stretch marks, spider veins, and age spots.
These techniques allow us to offer a global treatment of skin aging. My aesthetic surgical activity includes the usual techniques: Facelifts of the face and neck, eyelids, liposuction, lipostructure surgery silhouette, breast surgery (reconstruction, reductions, increases, mastopexies, etc...) abdominoplasty, facelifts and thighs arms, ears for plasties, rhinoplasties, etc...)
Some procedures are performed in the operating room of the doctor's office which is run by our Nurse Operating Room Marie Laurence. Others are done at the Private Hospital Durieux in Le Tampon. My appointments will be managed by Céliane, my secretary, who devotes all her energy to find you the most adapted timetables.
After surgery, the second passion that I share with my wife is scuba diving, to the point that it consumes most of our leisure and vacation time. We love Réunion and it's people and are proud to be part of Réunion.
