AAFPRS Facial Rejuvenation Meeting to Hit Beverly Hills

The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) Facial Rejuvenation Meeting will take place in Beverly Hills, CA from March 16-19, 2016. Co-Chaired by facial plastic surgeons Drs. Stephen W. Perkins of Indianapolis, Theda C. Kontis of Baltimore, and Rami Batniji of Beverly Hills and Newport Beach, CA, the program covers the latest surgical and non-surgical techniques that keep celebs looking great on the red carpet.

In dynamic sessions of “dueling surgeries,” multiple surgeons will perform concurrent facelifts, necklifts, blepharoplasty and rhinoplasty procedures while being questioned and challenged. Also not to be missed is Beverly Hills facial plastic surgeon Paul Nassif, MD, speaking on what it’s like to star on E!’s “Botched,” makeup artist Michael Westmore discussing facial artistry and fat grafting during facelifts with San Francisco facial plastic surgeon Timothy Marten, MD.

New ASDS Symposium Aims to Fill Cosmetic Training Gaps Among Residents

The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) is offering a symposium on patient safety and achieving optimal cosmetic outcomes for residents. The 2016 Premier Annual Resident Cosmetic Symposium is slated to take place April 15-17 in Dallas. Co-directed by Boston dermatologic surgeon Thomas E. Rohrer, MD, and Bradenton, FL dermatologist Susan H. Weinkle, MD, the 2016 Cosmetic Symposium aims to help residents strengthen their foundations in the anatomy of beauty, fat-reducing and acne scar injectables, soft-tissue fillers and neuromodulators, peels and cosmeceuticals, vein treatments, laser and energy-based rejuvenation, and body contouring.

The new symposium is just one part of the Society’s efforts to strengthen resident education.

The ASDS Visiting Professor Program allows dermatologic surgeons to share their experience at residency programs at no cost to their institutions.
