Course Overview

The purpose of this program is to provide an in-depth learning opportunity to help the surgeon understand the latest techniques in performing facial implant procedures and obtaining the best outcomes in facial contouring.

This course is a hands-on cadaver workshop.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course the participant will be able to:

  • Demonstrate surgical techniques in the placement of facial implants.
  • Provide techniques for consultation and implantation of chin and midfacial augmentation to provide consistent and reliably predictable results.  Advanced procedures for jawline enhancement and temporal corrections will also be discussed.
  • Identify potential complications and how to effectively avoid and manage them.
  • Obtain correct and exact implant placement, as well as determine the right type of implant for each anatomical area.
  • Determine indications and obtain ability to use imaging and design custom implants.
Intended Audience

Our target audience is plastic surgeons, facial plastic surgeons, oral/maxillofacial surgeons and aesthetic surgeons of all disciplines.
