About Xavier

‘The beauty of plastic surgery is that you can give someone back or optimize the contours of their body. This in good consultation with the client. In doing so, it is essential to paint as realistic a picture as possible of the outcome that can be expected. Only then can the client make an informed decision with me and we work toward an optimal and realistic result!


I studied medicine at Maastricht University and did my plastic surgeon training in Eindhoven and Maastricht. In addition, I lived in Paris in 2012 where I attended a Fellow ship at the “Institut de la Main.” I have also successfully passed the following exams at the European level:

  • the European Board of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery Exam; and
  • through the European FESSH Academy the “Diploma of the European Board of Hand Surgery.”
