Aesthetic Surgery and the Aging Face: 5-Day Annual SymposiumCredentialed members of the press are invited to attend two symposia on various aspects of facial cosmetic surgery being held at the Waldorf Astoria November 16 to 19.
On November 16, 2005, the first part of the symposia will be a day long course titled “ Fillers, Injectables and Lasers for Aesthetic Surgery.” The second part, titled “Aesthetic Surgery of the Aging Face” starts the following day. During these two symposia, lasting a total of five days, a faculty of 38 experts will present the most up to date operations, techniques, procedures and concepts of the entire spectrum of cosmetic surgery, including skin resurfacing, Botox injections and facelifts. The program is expected to attract o ver 500 surgeons from more than 38 countries around the world.
“This symposium focuses on both surgical and nonsurgical facial rejuvenation,” says Mark Jewell, MD, president of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), and a member of the symposium faculty. Minimally invasive techniques are terrific for individuals who want to enhance their appearance without the downtime of traditional procedures. Noninvasive procedures can also be used in conjunction with surgical procedures to produce longer-lasting results."
“Advances in cosmetic surgery have occurred constantly over the last 25 years,” says Sherrell J. Aston, MD who has organized an annual symposium since 1979 along with his Co-Chairman, Dr. Thomas D. Rees. The symposium, which is sponsored by Manhattan Eye Ear and Throat Hospital and New York University Institute of Reconstructive Plastic Surgery, is endorsed by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) and recognized by plastic surgeons around the world as a major educational event.
Manhattan Eye Ear and Throat Hospital has been the busiest cosmetic surgery hospital in the world for more than a quarter of a century. The number of surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures in the United States increased by 44 percent in 2004 to a total of nearly 11.9 million, according to ASAPS statistics. “The tremendous interest in cosmetic surgery around the world, by patients and the media make continuing education a necessity. This symposium has traditionally been closed to the media. However, accurate information is in the best interest of patients, and media contact with recognized experts in cosmetic surgery is essential for accurate reporting,” says Dr. Aston. Credentialed media are invited to register.
