Excellence and a global approach for all questions relating to beauty and aesthetics.

Chirurgie Plastique Riviera offers the unique concept of a general approach to all aspects of beauty with the help of surgical and non-surgical treatments.

The center is located in the heart of Montreux on the Lake Geneva shoreline, near the casino and world famous hotels, where a wide space with view on the lake and mountains make the clients feel well taken care of from the very first moment.

Operations requiring a stay at the hospital are done at Clinique La Prairie in Clarens or at Hôpital Riviera-Chablais in Vevey and Aigle.
