Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) March 03, 2015
Dallas plastic surgeon, Dr. Rod J. Rohrich, will serve as chairman of the upcoming Dallas Rhinoplasty Symposium, to be held March 6th to March 8th, 2015. The three day symposium, 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 advances in rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty surgery.
The symposium will cover a diverse array of rhinoplasty specific topics such as measurement and analysis of the nasal tip, the use of grafts, osteotomies, considerations in ethnic rhinoplasty, and revision rhinoplasty (also known as secondary rhinoplasty) a particularly difficult surgery which is performed on rhinoplasty patients who had a primary rhinoplasty with undesirable results. Presentations include demonstrations, lectures, Q&A sessions, and panel discussions with highly experienced rhinoplasty surgeons.
A unique feature of the Dallas Rhinoplasty Symposium is the symposium's 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 Symposium offers a unique advantage as it provides truly hands on experience and training in one of the most complex procedures in cosmetic surgery," says Dr. Rohrich, who currently serves as a distinguished teaching professor in the Department of Plastic Surgery at UT Southwestern Medical Center. "This symposium continues to be one of the most productive educational experiences for surgeons studying this difficult surgery."
Dr. Rohrich, who also serves as Editor-in-Chief of the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery journal, believes that specialized educational symposia are a key component of surgeon's continuing medical education. "The Dallas Rhinoplasty Symposium is designed to provide access to information and advances that are truly on the forefront of surgical knowledge in this specialized area," explains Dr. Rohrich. "Rhinoplasty is the quintessential representation of plastic surgery as a whole. It remains one of the most difficult procedures in all of plastic surgery, one of great finesse which takes years to master."
