Course Description and Statement of Need

Plastic and reconstructive surgical and non-surgical procedures vary widely. Patient needs range from birth defects to facial rejuvenation, accidents to rhinoplasty, scar revision to body contouring – and all require a unique skill set and experience. This demand for aesthetic procedures and reconstruction give rise to numerous new technologies and techniques; however, keeping pace with such advances can be challenging.

This 3-day program will present participants with cutting-edge information that can be applied directly to their practice. The ultimate goals of the course are to improve patient safety and physician performance while achieving the best possible outcomes for aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery. In addition, part of the course will provide physician attendees comprehensive information on non-surgical full facial rejuvenation emphasizing combination therapies.Specific therapeutic modalities will be addressed including currently recommended techniques as well as lesser-known cosmetic applications.The program will be divided into sessions with faculty panels and question and answer sessions interspersed to encourage interactivity between participants and session presenters.
