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.
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) March 22, 2016
Dallas plastic surgeon, Dr. Rod J. Rohrich, served as the chairman of the 33rd international Dallas Rhinoplasty Symposium. The three day symposium was attended by over 300 plastic surgeons and otolaryngologists from 34 countries worldwide. The meeting, which focused on rhinoplasty and secondary rhinoplasty, provided surgeons with detailed information on innovative topics, emerging techniques, best outcomes, and modern advances in rhinoplasty surgery.
The symposium covered an array of rhinoplasty 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 have a primary rhinoplasty with poor results. Presentations include demonstrations, lectures, question and answer sessions, and panel discussions with highly experienced rhinoplasty surgeons from around the world.
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 rhinoplasty experts. "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 Distinguished Teaching Professor in the Department of Plastic Surgery at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. "This symposium continues to be one of the most productive educational experiences for surgeons studying rhinoplasty, one of the most challenging procedures in all of cosmetic 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 a 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."
