This interdisciplinary institution coordinates dermatologists, plastic surgeons, gynaecologists and anaesthesiologists for interdisciplinary individual approaches in aesthetic medicine and aesthetic surgery. 1992, Gerhard Sattler started the International Darmstadt-Live-Symposium, a congress which takes place every second year. This congress was one of the first ones with live transmission over a period of 3 days with more than 50 surgeries and a worldwide surgical faculty.
