DALLAS (PRWEB) March 02, 2021
Dallas rhinoplasty specialist and Meeting Chair, Dr. Rod J. Rohrich, is pleased to announce the upcoming 2021 Dallas Rhinoplasty Meeting, to be held March 13th. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic requiring global travel restrictions and for the safety of all participants, the meeting venue has changed to an all-day, virtual event. The annual Dallas Cosmetic Surgery and Medicine Meeting, taking place the following day on March 14th, will also be virtual. Both meeting will host attendees from around the world.
Over its 38 year history, the Dallas Rhinoplasty Meeting has become a key international event for surgeons worldwide as a unique educational venue for sharing the latest techniques and advancements in preservation vs. precision rhinoplasty. The meeting has brought about crucial shifts in the field. The meeting also inspired the textbook "Dallas Rhinoplasty: Nasal Surgery by the Masters," now it is 3rd edition edited by Drs. Rohrich, Adams, and Ahmad and is used as the rhinoplasty textbook in plastic surgery educational programs internationally as well as “Secondary Rhinoplasty by the Global Masters,” also edited by Dr. Rohrich.
The Dallas Rhinoplasty Meeting covers a wide range of topics from the fundamentals of nasal anatomy to complex surgical procedures and detailed analysis of revision rhinoplasty. Formats include lectures, discussion panels, video review, and Q&A sessions. "The meeting is significant in that many renowned rhinoplasty surgeons gather together and discussion focuses on what works to provide the best, optimal, long term results," says Dr. Rohrich.
Topics to be covered in this year's meeting include preservation rhinoplasty, tip and alar base anatomy and refinements, cartilage conversion techniques, prevention and management of rhinoplasty complications, advances in cleft rhinoplasty, and non-surgical rhinoplasty, among many others. In the newly virtual format, live panels with the faculty will occur after each module, and lectures will be available to participants after the meeting.
"Rhinoplasty truly epitomizes plastic surgery as a whole because it is a surgery of such great finesse and takes years to master." says Dr. Rohrich. "It is one of the most difficult procedures in all of plastic surgery, but also one of the most rewarding."
