This type of virtual, interactive livestream meeting will become a standard for global educational conferences moving forward
DALLAS (PRWEB) June 16, 2020
Following the popular annual Dallas Rhinoplasty Meeting, Dallas rhinoplasty specialist, Dr. Rod J. Rohrich, hosted a special, add-on course on rhinoplasty. Over 500 people from nearly 40 countries registered to attend this one day livestreamed event which included steaming surgical presentations, clinical analysis, interactive live panel discussions, and Q&A sessions focused specifically on rhinoplasty and secondary rhinoplasty.
The global event was livestreamed as a virtual alternative to in-person educational conferences, most of which have been put on hold during the social distancing directives put in place to help control the spread of COVID19.
Key topics at this event included detailed nasal analysis as well as the use of finesse technology in rhinoplasty, considerations in ethnic rhinoplasty, correcting nasal asymmetry and the deviated septum, principles in secondary rhinoplasty, the use of cosmetic fillers in rhinoplasty (known as liquid rhinoplasty), and safety guidelines for rhinoplasty and secondary rhinoplasty surgery.
"This type of virtual, interactive livestream meeting will become a standard for global educational conferences moving forward," says Dr. Rohrich, who serves as Chair of the Dallas Rhinoplasty Meeting. "They allow for people all over the world to learn without leaving home during these challenging times. We are proud to be on the forefront of these technological advances that help bring convenience and safety to our global educational meetings."
