Course Description

The videos will demonstrate:

- The use of autologous fat grafting to enhance surgical results in the face, eyelids, breast, body and female genitalia.
- Multiple brow lifting techniques including coronal, anterior hairline, endoscopic brow lift, lateral brow lift, brow lift with neurotoxins and correction of overly high hairline.
- Classical and advanced upper and lower lid blepharoplasty techniques and how to correct lower lid laxity.
- Facelift techniques with smas flaps, extended smas flaps, smas plication, and smascetomy, using short scar and classical incisions.
- Neck correction with short and classical incision facelifts, anterior platysmaplasty, various lateral platysma procedures for neck contouring, correcting anterior digastric fullness and prominent submandibular glands.
- Breast augmentation techniques using inframammary, transaxillary, periareolar incisions, pre-operative measurements, markings, implant selection, treatment of constricted lower breast pole with implants, and augmentation with implants and autologous fat.
- Mastopexy with augmentation demonstrating measurements and markings, implant selection and correction of the over augmented breast.
- Male and female breast reduction techniques including technology assisted procedures.
- Advanced surgical and technology assisted abdominal sculpting procedures.
- Advanced buttock sculpting procedures demonstrating shaping and augmentation.
- Advanced body contouring procedures for arms, calves, ankles, back, flanks, love handles and the anterior, posterior, and lateral thighs.
- Internal and external female genitalia contouring and rejuvenation procedures.

The symposium will open with a Keynote Address by Dr. Michael Longaker, an internationally recognized authority, who will update the science of stem cell biology and why autologous fat grafting will never replace surgery. Twelve lectures will address non-surgical skin tightening in face and neck rejuvenation, how non-invasive devices and techniques enhance a surgical practice, and how photographs can be deceiving in demonstrating results. Fourteen panels will discuss and debate the videos shown, comparing the complexity of procedures, technical details, complications and patient safety issues. Audience participation is encouraged during all panels. An open forum with the faculty will permit audience participation, questions, and discussion.
