FACE18 will be the 6th edition of a meeting that since its first edition in the year of 2012 aims to raise the standards in facial plastic surgery.
The format of the meeting has been progressively adapted to innovation, anatomic and surgical concepts and to the higher level of knowledge of our participants, keeping the focus on a step-by-step learning process dedicated to beginners.
As usual, we will gathered a Faculty of International Masters who will guarantee the success of the Meeting.
Facial Plastic Surgery will be debated by Otorhinolaryngology, Plastic Surgery, Maxillo-Facial Surgery and Ophthalmology Doctors that dedicate their professional lives to this art!
This edition offers an exciting hands-on surgical brainstorming day where participants will be offer the opportunity to actively live the surgery, assisting the main surgeon. A menu of 4 simultaneous live surgeries will be available for participants to choose what to observe. Everyone is allowed to choose which surgery, which room, which step is more valuable to achieve the goals.
The second day is dedicated to our classical hands-on cadaver dissection course. The dissection will be mainly dedicated to aesthetic procedures. Rhinoplasty, Oculoplastic, Face Lift and Otoplasty will be demonstrated by the teachers and performed by the participants. Anatomical and technical considerations about fillers and toxins will be debated.
For the first time we will do the “Facial Plastic Symposium” as a pre-congress day of the Annual Conference of the Portuguese Otorhinolaryngology Society (SPORL, www.sporl.net) that will be held in Aveiro. The goal of the organization and the Facial Plastic Surgery Committee of the Portuguese ORL/HNS Society is to make possible to the highest number of colleagues to actively participate in an intense learning format Symposium with case-based lectures, edited technique focus videos and round tables (day 3).
