The anatomical principles and surgical procedures required for nasal reshaping/rhinoplasty surgery, both functional and cosmetic correction, will be focused upon. One of the most common facial cosmetic surgical procedures performed today for this anatomical area include principles of surgical approach (open vs. closed), nasal tip grafting, harvesting of autologous cartilage (e.g., septum, conchal), nasal profile surgery and nasal width correction. Functional deformities will be addressed, including septoplasty and internal nasal valve correction with use of grafting techniques.
The second half of the course will focus on cosmetic surgery of the lower facial third, including lower facial rejuvenation with cervicofacial rhytidectomy (facelift), platysmaplasty and facial liposuction, which all influence facial esthetics.
This workshop will begin with an in-depth anatomical discussion of the area followed by surgical instruction on fresh cadaver specimens as the hands-on workshop with esteemed faculty will offer a direct learning experience. All surgical treatment modalities will focus on patient safety and quality of outcome. The focus is on hands-on exposure with close supervision from experienced/recognized course faculty of these most commonly used facial rejuvenation surgical procedures. Participants will be able to discuss surgical anatomy and principles in the various procedures with close interaction from experts in the field of facial cosmetic surgery.
