Dr. Bettina Demal

Specialist in anesthesiology
Consulting doctor for lipedema

I initially started my professional career as part of my training as a specialist in anesthesiology at the LMU Munich. After completing my residency and graduating as a senior physician, I left the hospital in 2001 for parental leave after the birth of my daughter. After this, I returned to the Institute of Anesthesiology at LMU Munich in March 2003. After the birth of my son in 2005, I ended my professional career at the University of Munich.

From 2006 to 2009 I devoted myself with great dedication to outpatient anesthesia in children in different practices of various specialties, such as pediatric dentistry, pediatric surgery and pediatric orthopedics. In parallel, I also had many assignments in adult anesthesia, such as in the orthopedic clinic at Kurzstraße Munich or the Martha-Maria Hospital also in Munich.

After that, I continued my career in 2009 in a permanent position at the Iatrosklinik in Munich. In the same year I was able to reach the position of a senior physician there. Particularly enriching for me was the wide spectrum of the clinic as well as the highly professional implementation of the outpatient care of patients at the most modern level of my specialty, as well as surgical colleagues. With the focus on high-quality medicine with maximum patient safety and comfort, working in an outstandingly competent as well as collegial team gave me great pleasure.

In 2015, I successfully passed the specialist examination. In order to be able to continue my previous focus of work at the university, intensive care medicine, I initially left the Iatrosklinik. At the surgical hospital Munich South, a maximum care hospital and teaching hospital of the LMU, I was able to continue my training in special intensive care medicine and soon became deputy head of the intensive care unit there.

In 2017, I successfully passed the examination to obtain the additional title of special intensive care medicine. In 2018, I returned to the Iatrosklinik as a senior physician. Since 2019, I have been providing anesthesiological care for the clinics of Smileeyes Munich.

Due to the long-standing and particularly intensive cooperation with the team of LIPOCURA® in the Iatrosklinik as a senior physician of anesthesiology and the resulting mutual expertise, I am also since 2018, as a consulting physician for lipedema at LIPOCURA® Munich. An intensive as well as empathetic recording of the patient’s history in a personal conversation under discretion is very important to me. Optimal, holistic care of patients with lipedema according to the most modern medical know-how, both on the part of plastic surgery and from the perspective of optimal anesthesiological care, motivated me to become part of the consulting team of LIPOCURA®.

A modern anesthesia management in general anesthesia, not only ensures optimal monitoring of all vital functions during the procedure of liposuction on an anesthesiological specialist level, but also contributes significantly to the gentle procedure and patient comfort. This procedure thus offers significantly more safety than liposuction under local anesthesia, due to the side effects of these substances and the lack of stress shielding for patients. In addition, the so-called twilight sleep or analgosedation does not offer comparable safety compared to a gentle general anesthesia.

So I am looking forward to accompany you professionally on the common way to a higher quality of life.
