Park City, UT (PRWEB) May 08, 2014
In February, over 200 of the top plastic surgeons and dermatologists attended the 6th installment of the American-Brazilian Aesthetic Meeting (ABAM), held this year in Florianpolis, Southern Brazil. Founded and co-chaired by Dr. Renato Saltz, a Brazilian-born and US trained board certified plastic surgeon, this unique event alternates every year between Southern Brazil and Utah, where Dr. Saltz maintains his plastic surgery practices.
“Over 90 nationalities were represented at this year’s meeting,” says Utah plastic surgeon, Dr. Saltz. “This diversity allowed us to share a wide range of new ideas, techniques, and individual and difficult case studies.”
Other scientific panel discussions included safety in cosmetic surgery, breast augmentation, facial rejuvenation surgery, non-surgical options for facial rejuvenation, body contouring, and ‘hot topics’ within the industry such as fat transfer and stem cell research.
ABAM provides an excellent opportunity not only for an international clinical exchange of knowledge in aesthetic surgery but for discussion of the current socioeconomic conditions and how they affect plastic surgery communities in the United States, Brazil and the rest of the world. It serves also as a new forum for residents, fellows and colleagues in private practice from around the world to present their innovative work in the United States and Brazil. “The goal of the American Brazilian Aesthetic Meeting,” Dr. Saltz continues, “is to combine science with fun through friendship and collegiality.”
ABAM is endorsed by both American and Brazilian societies for aesthetic plastic surgery. Proceeds from the event are donated to the Image Reborn Foundation of Utah, an organization providing no-cost healing retreats to women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer.
