About Dr Denys J. Loeffelbein MD, DDS

Dr Denys J. Loeffelbein is a specialist in oral, maxillofacial and facial plastic surgery and is the chief physician of the Clinic for Oral, Maxillofacial and Facial Plastic Surgery at Helios Clinic Munich West. He is also the Medical and Dental Director of the MFACE Medical Care Centre for Maxillofacial and Plastic Surgery.

At the Helios Clinic in Munich West, only the inpatient treatment of patients is possible. The clinic therefore works in close cooperation with the MFACE | Maxillofacial Center Munich Pasing. For outpatient or inpatient treatment, please contact the MFACE Medical Care Centre for Maxillofacial and Plastic Surgery.

The Helios Clinic in Munich West has over 400 beds. In addition to the Clinic for Oral, Maxillofacial and Facial Plastic Surgery, a total of eight specialist departments are brought together under a single roof. Because of its expertise, the clinic is also the teaching hospital of the Ludwig Maximilian University.

The clinic led by Dr Loeffelbein offers the entire spectrum of oral-maxillofacial surgery and works closely together with the Clinic for Ear, Nose and Throat Medicine, Trauma Surgery and Plastic Surgery.

In particular, aesthetic procedures of the face are carried out in close collaboration with the Department of Plastic Surgery led by Dr Lonic. This includes the correction of dysgnathias, facial malformations (including cleft lip and palate) and the reconstruction of bone and soft tissue defects after tumour diseases or accidents.

Traumatology of the cranium

In addition to tumour diseases, fractures and injuries to the face as well as their subsequent complications are treated at the Helios Clinic in Munich West according to the highest scientific standards.

Dr Loeffelbein's specialities include fractures of the facial skull and the surrounding structures and their care as well as the treatment of late sequela. At the Helios Clinic in Munich West, he treats fractures of the jaw, the zygomatic bone, the eye socket, and the facial skull. Treatment is always carried out in close cooperation with other specialized disciplines in order to guarantee patients the best possible treatment. Dr Loeffelbein thus works closely with the Departments of Ear, Nose, and Throat Medicine and Trauma Surgery.

Specialist in cleft lip and cleft palate, malocclusion, dental implants, and more

Other speciality areas of Dr Loeffelbein include pediatric-plastic surgery as well as facial aesthetic surgery and jaw corrections. Furthermore he treats children with cleft lip and palate or severe facial and skull deformities.

In the special field of orthodontic surgery, Dr Loeffelbein treats dysgnathia among other things. These are defects of the teeth, jaw, or chewing system. Symptoms of such changes can be manifold. For example, patients complain of joint pain, migraine-like headaches, sleep apnoea symptoms, or severe malocclusion. Elderly patients can also be helped.

Treatment of tumour diseases of the face and its skin

Tumour diseases of the face or skin tumours can lead to strong aesthetic and functional restrictons for those affected. For patients with these symptoms, Dr Loeffelbein is the best starting point for high-quality and state-of-the-art surgical care. Dr Loeffelbein is particularly adept in treating scars or changes of the facial structures that arise after tumour treatment.
