“Excellence in Cosmetic Surgery”
This coming weekend it’s that time of the year again when the who’s who of the aesthetics industry come together to rub shoulders and discuss the latest innovations and techniques in plastic and cosmetic surgery. This year the annual ASAPS (Australasian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons) Conference is celebrating 40 years and have chosen to highlight “Excellence in Cosmetic Surgery” as the theme throughout the conference. Held at the Grand Hyatt in Melbourne, this event promises to deliver and offers world renowned international and our home grown Aussie keynote speakers and attendees.
Production House Events have put together a weekend jam packed with celebrations including the always fun and much anticipated gala dinner where attendees have an opportunity to rub shoulders with colleagues, luminaries and friends. With a focus on Breast and Body Surgery, Neck, Eyelid and Facial Surgery the weekend also includes the highest of quality and respected speakers with scientific and business sessions to ensure each attendee comes out of the conference with new knowledge and appreciation for the innovative and amazing aesthetics industry.
Keynote speakers include Dr Bill Adams from the USA, Dr Giovanni Botti from Italy, Dr Daniel Labbe from France, Dr Lorne Rosenfield from the USA and of course some of our best Australian plastic surgeons including Dr Mark Magnusson (current ASAPS president), Dr Anand Deva, Dr Naveen Somia and Dr Scott Ingram.
Topics include breast implants and the ongoing debate as to which type is best, ie. Anatomical vs Round, Textured vs Smooth, etc., the latest techniques for augmentation, abdominoplasty, Brazilian butt lift and business sessions with insights as to how you can make your business more successful, including why embracing the non-surgical treatments is important for a plastic and cosmetic surgery business to move forward. The organisers also haven’t forgotten about the Practice Managers of the industry who are often the ones who keep the surgeons and their clinics running successfully. There are workshops and sessions tailored specifically for them and their role in the industry. This doesn’t even touch the surface of the other topics that will be discussed – if you’d like to check out the program for yourself click here.
I’m also extra excited this year as I will be presenting on the breast augmentation patient mindset which I hope will give attendees additional insight into what we, as patients, expect, hope for, fear and want out of our plastic surgery experience.
I’ll definitely be interviewing and picking the brains of many of the attendees and keeping my eyes and ears open in order to introduce you to the surgeons and bring you back podcasts, blogs and videos. One of the reasons why I love to do this is it comes back to providing insider information for consumers which comes back to my mantra #patientsafetyfirst.
See you on the flipside, and here’s to an awesome conference!!
