AAFPRS Advances in Rhinoplasty Recap

The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) Advances in Rhinoplasty Meeting took place in Chicago during early May 2017. More than 600 physicians from around the world attended this meeting, which was chaired by facial plastic surgeons Drs. Peter A. Adamson, Sam P. Most, and Oren Friedman. The program explored the world of rhinoplasty from the latest non-invasive techniques and cultural preferences to what’s next for noses.

“The meeting itself has been in existence for more than 30 years (in one form or another) and has an excellent reputation as the most outstanding all-around meeting on this topic. We were excited to break records for attendance this year,” says Dr. Most, a Professor in the Departments of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery and Surgery (Division of Plastic Surgery, by courtesy) and Chief of the Division of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery at Stanford University School of Medicine in Stanford, CA. “We invited some of the top rhinoplasty surgeons from all over the world to speak, and this in turn attracted attention from attendees from across the globe.”

Rhinoplasty is one of the most difficult operations in plastic surgery, he says. “Surgeons should try to recreate structure that creates a long-lasting result that not only creates beauty but retains or improves function,” Most says, adding that cultural and ethnic norms for rhinoplasty have changed over the years. “While a tiny, peaked tip with a low bridge (ski slope) was in style during the 60s and 70s, today a much more natural appearance is desired.”

Other meeting topics included ultrasonic rhinoplasty, nasal transplantation and non-surgical rhinoplasty.
