BE THE BEST VERSION OF YOURSELF
Oversized, sagging breasts can not only severely affect a woman's body image; in many cases they also lead to painful changes: for example, tension between the shoulder blades and on the neck, postural problems, skin irritation under the breast and armpit as well as incisive bra straps on the shoulders. At the ATOS Private Clinic in Munich, we therefore often recommend plastic surgery breast reduction with reshaping to affected patients not only for aesthetic but also for medical reasons. From a resection weight of approx. 500 g, health insurance companies usually cover or contribute to the treatment costs, provided an application has been submitted and approved in writing beforehand.
As an award-winning specialist with many years of experience in the field of breast surgery, I will be happy to advise you, carry out the procedure according to the latest scientific findings and ensure a natural and beautiful result.

With a breast reduction to
well-shaped and youthful breasts
Today, we can usually perform breast reduction surgery and areola repositioning with minimal scarring; the ability to breastfeed is usually retained. We adapt the breast size and shape to the patient's wishes and body measurements. In principle, the operation can be performed at any age. Important prerequisite: Your body growth is complete and your breasts are fully developed. For a smaller, lighter and firmer breast, we remove excess skin and breast tissue in the lower breast area. We use the remaining tissue to shape the new breast.
To optimise the results of a breast reduction, it may also be necessary to remove excess fatty tissue. If you are generally overweight, we recommend losing weight before the operation at our clinic in Munich. Major weight loss after the operation can affect the result.
Breast reduction surgery is performed in Munich at the ATOS Clinic, where my practice is also located.

Breast reduction - an option for me?
Before you decide to have a breast reduction, we will advise you in detail. Together we will clarify what results you can expect given your physical condition. You are welcome to show us photos of the changes you hope to see as a result of the operation. The sole aim of the procedure is to make you feel more comfortable afterwards. A breast reduction will give you smaller and more youthful breasts that will change your body proportions for the better.
We are here for you!
What the patients say ...
Prof Holm Mühlbauer is a very competent and experienced doctor. I have already had several outpatient procedures performed by her and she has also operated on me twice. I am very satisfied with the results. She advises and explains everything and answers every question. A top doctor! I can only recommend her to anyone.
I also have to say that the team at the O.P. was great and Mrs Fischer at reception is incredibly friendly and helpful anyway. You feel very welcome in the practice.
I had a breast augmentation 3 months ago with Prof. Dr Holm Mühlbauer and the result is great!
Mrs Prof. Dr Holm Mühlbauer gave me perfect advice on size so that it fits my body, I felt very well looked after and would always have it done there again.
Everything healed perfectly and I am more than satisfied.
I came across Prof Dr Holm-Mühlbauer through a recommendation from another doctor and immediately felt that I was receiving extremely competent advice. Before, during and after the breast augmentation, I could not have been better looked after by Dr Holm-Mühlbauer and her practice team.
The well-being of the patient is absolutely the focus here. Prof. Holm-Mühlbauer even came in on her day off just for me to remove the drainage.
The result of the operation is simply perfect + beautiful!
Sympathetic and professional experienced doctor,
I am very grateful to her and glad that I am in surgery with her. Best
I had a face and neck lift and an upper eyelid lift with Prof Dr Charlotte Holm Mühlbauer and the result was simply sensational.
I look young, fresh and not operated on. Just as it should be.
I didn't have any pain, but you have to be prepared for haematomas and swelling. But don't worry, this is normal and will be broken down by the body.
Professor Dr Charlotte Holm Mühlbauer is the best, both professionally and personally.
Her practice manager Sabine Fischer is always very friendly and helpful.
All the staff at the clinic who looked after me were caring and competent.
My husband is also delighted with the result.
I had my first experience with Dr Charlotte Holm Müllbauer 5 years ago. I came for the first time for a lip treatment. She was very professional and friendly at the same time. My lips were well done, I didn't have much swelling
🙏🏻 I was satisfied every time, but have since changed my doctor because the clinic in Effnerstr. is difficult for me to reach.
Friendly and very professional doctor!
I like going to her, the result is always natural!
I had a breast reduction with Prof Dr Charlotte Holm-Mühlbauer and I am delighted with the result. The reduction and lift turned out better than I had imagined. The result is natural and significantly firmer, fine scars that are barely visible and no pain after the operation. I am more than happy with the result. The entire team at the Atos Clinic is simply wonderful and always friendly and courteous. I have always had difficulties with circulation and nausea after general anaesthesia. At the Atos Clinic I had no complaints for the first time. From the initial consultation to the last follow-up examination, Prof Dr Holm-Mühlbauer and the practice team make you feel very well looked after and accepted. They are committed to their patients and are always at your side. I can only recommend Prof Dr Holm Mühlbauer to anyone.
Prof Dr Mühlbauer-Holm is a very good, experienced and empathetic doctor! I was already "under her knife" several times in her Bogenhausen days.
I owe it to her skill that my face is now very satisfactory again after I had to have a wing of my nose removed due to a basal cell carcinoma. Thank you very much for that!
Ausgezeichneter Arzt. Sie verdient den Titel als eine der besten plastischen Chirurgen Deutschlands.
Äußert professionelle Betreuung und Abwicklung. Für mich war es die erste OP im „kosmetischen“ Bereich. Die OP verlief reibungslos. Der Heilungsverlauf war sehr schnell und unkompliziert. Kurz nach der OP war das sehr gute Ergebnis und die professionelle Arbeit von Frau Prof. Holm-Mühlbauer deutlich erkennbar. Das Ergebnis ist sehr natürlich. Hier kenne ich andere Ergebnisse.
Frau Prof. Holm-Mühlbauer macht das mit einem Fachwissen und einer Kompetenz die man suchen muss. Ich bin froh, Frau Prof. Holm-Mühlbauer kennengelernt zu haben.
Die Assistentin von Frau Prof. Holm-Mühlbauer ist eine Perle. Herzlich, freundlich und fröhlich …
Professor Holm-Mühlbauer was recommended to me for a facelift. I will always be grateful for that. The first consultation, the inpatient stay and the subsequent aftercare were characterised by a professional and charming manner that you will rarely find in the medical field, but which is crucial for the necessary trust.
The result of the operation was simply great - natural and yet with a resounding result.
I would recommend this address to all my friends and acquaintances.
