Get hands-on training on the latest and most popular facial cosmetic surgery procedures. This intimate training experience limits no more than four participants and one faculty per cadaver. All didactics will take place in the Cadaver Lab. The first half of the course will focus on injectable filler safety and other minimally invasive procedures, and the second half will focus on larger surgical procedures.

After hands-on demonstration of the latest in cosmetic technology, injectables and surgical techniques, attendees will have an improved ability to incorporate these into their practice.

At the end of this educational activity, participants will be able to:

  • Describe specific procedures applicable to the facial cosmetic surgery patient and select the appropriate procedures for a patient. Attendees will be able to discuss in detail specific risks and how to safely manage patients before, during and after surgery.
  • Indicate how to add volume to the lips for a lip lift and safe filler injection.
  • Demonstrate various face lift options including specific focus on the neck and cheek junction.
  • Assess the mid face lift approach with endotine suspension.
