Dallas rhinoplasty specialist and meeting chairman, Dr. Rod J. Rohrich, recently hosted the 35th annual Dallas Rhinoplasty Meeting at the Westin Galleria in Dallas, Texas. The two day event, which is attended by plastic surgeons and otolaryngologists from around the world, is designed to provide surgeons with detailed information on current topics, emerging techniques, best practices and the latest advances in rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty surgery. The meeting had over 450 surgeons in attendance from over 43 countries around the world.
The meeting covers a wide range of special topics in rhinoplasty surgery from how to analyze the nose and plan a primary rhinoplasty to the fundamentals of successful secondary or revision rhinoplasty surgery. Many presentations focus on the latest refinements in surgical technique to ensure safe and reproducible results. Dr. Rohrich’s topics include detailed presentations on refining the tip of the nose, the use of grafts in rhinoplasty, and making sure to preserve a patient's ethnic traits when performing rhinoplasty.
A unique feature of the Dallas Rhinoplasty Meeting is the anatomy lab, which allows surgeons to perform the intricate and advanced surgical techniques required by rhinoplasty surgery on cadavers under the guidance and direction of Dr. Rohrich and other renowned experts in rhinoplasty.
"The anatomy lab of the Dallas Rhinoplasty Meeting offers a unique advantage as it provides truly hands on experience and training in one of the most complex procedures in all of cosmetic surgery," says Dr. Rohrich, who also serves as Editor-in-Chief of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. "This symposium continues to be one of the most productive educational experiences for surgeons studying this difficult surgery and is the only global meeting where participants can see, learn, and perform rhinoplasty alongside leading rhinoplasty experts, some of which pioneered modern rhinoplasty techniques."
