With an aging population and obesity on the rise, the need for surgeons skilled in cosmetic breast and body contouring procedures has never been clearer. This three day workshop is not just ideal for experienced cosmetic surgeons, but for the transitioning surgeon familiar with a wide range of surgical principals. Because "practice makes perfect," participants won't only be taught cutting-edge approaches to breast and body contouring surgery. They will also directly apply those procedures to human tissue.
This cadaver workshop is a potent blend of instruction and practice. Among the many benefits of this program:
- Unrivaled access to new techniques not currently being performed in the U.S.
- A series of 20-minute lectures and demonstrations on topics ranging from "Augmentation and Nipple Reconstruction" to "Inferior Pedicle Breast Reduction," the "Brazilian Butt Lift," the "Management of the Ischemic Abdomen" and "Male Gynecomastia."
- Brief talks on "Pearls in Breast Surgery" will cover a wide array of subjects from an "Algorithm for Implant Displacement" to "Ischemia and Tissue Loss."
- Three-hour cadaver laboratory sessions will allow for further training and exploration of advanced practices.
Learn from the best in the world through didactic lectures, panel discussions, cadaver demonstrations and hands on instruction. Help patients to a healthier and a more satisfying lifestyle.
Featured Speaker: Giovanni Botti, MD — Villa Bella Clinic, SalÃ³ Bescia, Italy
Dr. Botti is the Director and the lead surgeon of Villa Bella Clinic in Italy, one of the most advanced cosmetic surgery-dedicated day surgery units in Europe. He has lectured in over 30 countries and performed demonstrative surgical operations in numerous hospitals worldwide. He is the author of four complete books on topics including "Mastoplasty Cosmetics."
Fully-trained surgeons, and those from the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery core surgical specialties at various stages of experience, who have a strong desire to further their knowledge are encouraged to attend.
Learning ObjectivesAt the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Assess patients appropriate for breast augmentation
- Demonstrate various augmentation and combined augmentation and mastopexy procedures
- Describe various techniques of breast reductions and reconstruction of the breast
- Recognize various complications, their management, as well as the management of congenital and developmental deformities of the breasts
- Provide greater patient safety and better surgical outcomes
Due to aging and the increase in obesity in America, surgical procedures for body contouring have exploded in the past few years. This course will be designed to demonstrate new techniques not currently performed in the United States.
