The late complications of a 50 year old palmar injection trauma with color ink

Injection trauma occur preferably  at  the area of the index finger of non dominant  hand  (1,2). The degree of injury is related to the injection quantity, the substance and the injection pressure. In particular, oil-based liquids lead to tissue necrosis and  infections (amputation rate up to 50%, water-based 0%) (3). Instant hand surgical inspection and debridement are a must in colored injetion trauma. The case illustrated describes the long term complications of  a conservative  treated  palm  injection trauma with color […]

We warmly welcome cryolipolysis

  What is cryolipolysis and how does it work? Cryolipolysis comes from the  Greek words kryos = frost, lipa = fat and lysis = dissolution. It is a therapy that was initially developed for pain management, but found other uses in recent medicine. The local application of cold induces a fat cell apoptosis (“cell suicide”) for approx. 24% of the fat cells. These cells are then metabolized by the body, in particular by the liver, in the following four to […]

We are online!

We are done and our website is online, finished and complete! Or is it? After going over and over and over it again and again and again, the little, doubtful voice in our heads doesn’t quite want to go away entirely. But at some point we have to say that we are done and we hope you will forgive us if you still do might find a mistake. Or email us info@vassiliospapageorgiou.com .Thank you!

Our website is nearly done

As you can see we are finetuning the very last details of our web presence, although it seems we always find a sentence to improve or a tiny detail to correct. When it is done, our website will offer you a broad overview of our services, my background in plastic surgery and – most importantly – a way to reach us. As we firmly believe that some things are better explained face-to-face, please don’t hesitate to contact us any way […]

Things are starting to move

The first two months since our official opening have been quite busy. Thankfully, there is demand for a plastic surgeon in Rhodes and while we are never (ever) going to publisize names – or photos for that matter – of our patients, we want to take this opportunity to thank you for your trust in us.
