We always love plastic surgery industry events and shaping up to be one of the best ever is this years Masters Symposium which is being held in Sydney from 7 – 10 October. This year’s event is a collaboration between the AAFPS (Australasian Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery) and the ASPS (Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons) with the focus being on Functional and Aesthetic Rhinoplasty.
Dr George Marcells (AAFPS) and Dr Peter Callan (ASPS) both agree that Rhinoplasty is one of the hardest and most difficult procedures to perform well. “We’ve gathered some of the best surgeons from around the world to come and share their experiences” said Dr George Marcells (President, AAFPS). “A symposium like this gives us an opportunity to share information and learn from some of the worlds best, and ultimately has to lead in better results for patients.” It’s these industry forums that promote continuous learning to strive for surgery excellence.
So why collaboration? “Collaboration is the fastest road to excellence in rhinoplasty”. says Dr Peter Callan, “Because it requires a nose that looks good, breathes well and stays that way, that there is a huge amount to get right in a very small but complex area. Plastic surgeons and ENT surgeons both bring this excellence to the table in slightly different ways. We learn from each other”.
This year’s symposium features some amazing specially selected keynote speakers who have a huge wealth of experience and expertise. The speakers have been chosen because they are at the pinnacle of Rhinoplasty teaching in the world. Over the next few weeks we will be posting interviews with a few keynote speakers.
If you’ve ever considered or had rhinoplasty, you will agree it’s a procedure you really want to know will be performed perfectly… it is after all, one of the more prominent areas of your face for restructuring and can change your whole facial appearance. Not only that, your nose is an extremely important functional body part, and there is minimal room for error – breathing is kind of important!
