One of the most anticipated gatherings on the Plastic Surgery conference circuit is happening this weekend – Plastic Surgery Congress 2017 from 1 – 4 June at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre. The Plastic Surgery Congress, organised by the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), is a coming together of some of the most highly respected surgeons from Australia and around the world.
Key speakers include the highly esteemed Dr Bryan Mendelson with other presentations by several leading Australian surgeons including Dr Damian Marucci. Dr Marucci says it’s one of the best and most informative meets of the year and he loves attending this conference as the focus is more scientific.
A huge array of medical topics will be on the agenda including Fat Grafting, use of Stem Cells, new treatments such as Belkyra, breast reconstruction techniques, implants, facial anatomy and ageing, massive weight loss approaches and procedures, eye surgery techniques (blepharoplasty) and so, so much more! Australia’s and indeed the world’s best surgeons hear from their colleagues about the most advanced and successful techniques in the plastic surgery industry. This is where leaders in the field come to hear others of a similar calibre and all attendees take home a wealth of information and insight to apply to their own practices.
Plastic surgery is not all about boob jobs and butt lifts, and whilst this is certainly a big market and part of modern plastic surgery, this conference also covers the more serious side such as hand grafts for burns and trauma patients, cleft lip and palate deformities and other such topics. Plastic surgery is life changing for so many patients around the world and these surgeons are an amazing group of humans. Conferences such as this allow the sharing of experiences and knowledge in order to raise awareness of new techniques and discoveries in an extremely progressive and always changing field.
Conference attendees are also able to network and mingle in the various events surrounding the conference including dinners, lunches and exhibitions. If you’d like to find out more check out the website.
