This fresh cadaver course will focus on advanced eyelid topics often encountered in an aesthetic eyelid practice. The attendee will gain experience in understanding the anatomy, indications for treatment, and perform the surgical technique under the guidance of experienced oculoplastic experts. Topics covered include upper and lower eyelid blepharoplasty, correction of eyelid ptosis with Müllerectomy and Tarsal Repair, correction of ectropion, and treating malar festoons.

The face lift workshop will feature cosmetic surgeons who will provide the opportunity to learn basic safe facelift techniques and deep plane facelift. A special added feature will include facial implants to enhance face results. Brow and forehead lifts will also be demonstrated. There will be opportunity to use the mini thread lift procedure with Italian plastic surgeon, Enrico Guarino, MD.

Target Audience:
This course is intended for the cosmetic surgeon who has some knowledge of facial cosmetic procedures. Any cosmetic surgeon who wishes to learn basic skills as well as refine skills with blepharoplasty and facelift techniques will find this course invaluable. Those cosmetic surgeons who would like to become more confident in dealing with potential blepharoplasty complications and difficult to treat blepharoplasty patients will benefit from the experienced oculoplastic faculty.

At the conclusion of the workshop, attendees will be able to:

  • Apply basic upper and lower eyelid blepharoplasty techniques.
