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.
MIAMI (PRWEB) April 06, 2018
Dallas plastic surgeon, Dr. Rod J. Rohrich, has participated in the prestigious global cosmetic plastic surgery meeting, the Baker Gordon Symposium, for over a decade. The 3-day symposium is attended by plastic surgeons from around the world, and is designed to teach cosmetic surgeons via live surgery, directly from the masters in plastic surgery. The symposium teaches the most detailed and updated information on current trending topics, patient safety, emerging techniques, best practices, and advances in the field.
This world class meeting is held annually in Miami, Florida. Dr. Rohrich co-moderated the 52nd session of the Baker Gordon meeting. The symposia covered a diverse array of the hottest topics in cosmetic surgery highlighting patient safety in buttock augmentation, breast reshaping and finesse in open rhinoplasty with measurement and analysis of the nasal tip, the use of grafts, 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.
"This symposium continues to be one of the most productive educational experiences for surgeons who want to learn the new advances in cosmetic surgery like rhinoplasty which is the most challenging procedure in all of plastic surgery," said Dr. Rohrich.
A unique feature of the Baker Gordon Symposium is the live surgery performed in front of a large professional audience by the world experts in cosmetic surgery. Dr. Rohrich demonstrated the finesse and refinement in techniques of open rhinoplasty by performing live surgery at the symposium.
"The live surgery symposium offers surgeons first-hand education that's required to successfully perform open rhinoplasty using the latest intricate and advanced surgical techniques, while also seeing exactly what needs to be corrected," says Dr. Rohrich, the chair of the world renowned Dallas Rhinoplasty Symposium and author of the most referenced text on the open rhinoplasty procedure, Dallas Rhinoplasty. Dr. Rohrich also recently published a new text entitled, Secondary Rhinoplasty by the Global Masters.
Dr. Rohrich, who also serves as Editor-in-Chief of the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery journal, believes that specialized educational symposia such as the Baker Gordon cosmetic surgery meeting are key components of a modern plastic surgeons' continuing medical education. Other key specialized cosmetic meetings such as, "The Dallas Rhinoplasty Symposium are 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."
