Dallas plastic surgeon and Meeting Chair, Dr. Rod J. Rohrich, is pleased to announce the upcoming 2021 Dallas Cosmetic Surgery and Medicine Meeting, to be held March 14th. Due to global travel restrictions and for the safety of all participants, the meeting venue has changed to an all-day, virtual event.
This meeting, along with the Dallas Rhinoplasty Meeting taking place the day prior, on March 13th, includes expert presentations on emerging topics, panel discussions, video feeds with expert commentary, and live edited demonstrations . Presentations are prepared by highly experienced surgeons and providers and will cover the latest trends and offer expert guidance on advanced applications of cosmetic treatments with a special emphasis on evidence-based medicine. Both meetings are attended by surgeons from around the world.
"The movement toward evidence-based plastic surgery doesn’t have a concrete end," explains meeting chairman, Dr. Rohrich. "This is truly a change in the way we practice our profession - a change that sets the stage for continual advances and improvements, always with an awareness of our perpetual duty to assure the safety and satisfaction of our patients."
The annual meeting, which is open to board certified plastic surgeons, facial plastic surgeons, otolaryngologists, oculoplastic surgeons, dermatologists, residents, and aestheticians and other non-physician providers, will focus on advances in topics such as non-invasive cosmetic procedures, fat removal, skin tightening, cellulite treatment, dermal fillers, lasers, and the latest advances in skin care.
The updated agenda has been moved to a fully virtual event for 2021 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. "The virtual format allows us to continue offering this unprecedented educational opportunity for surgeons to enhance their skills and understanding of cosmetic surgery, while making sure to keep participants safe and work around disruptions to global travel, " says Dr. Rohrich.
