The Baker Gordon Symposium on Cosmetic Surgery celebrates its 50th year, focusing on the contributions of Thomas J. Baker. The history of the Baker Gordon Symposium parallels the evolusion of interest and technical advances in cosmetic surgery. In 1967, Thomas Baker decided to invite innovators in cosmetic surgery who were willing to share their expertise to perform live surgery at Cedars Medical Center in Miami, Florida. The first invited guest surgeons included Salvador Castanares, a pioneer in modern blepharoplasty and Thomas D. Rees, who authored the first comprehensive textbook on aesthetic surgery. Twenty plastic surgeons from many parts of the United States gathered in the operating room to observe these experts and learn from their expertise. Fifty years later, the contributions of Thomas J. Baker continue. The Baker Gordon Symposium has become the largest live surgery symposia in the United States, and has trained thousands of plastic surgeons both through attendance, as well as through distribution of edited videos.

Live Surgery Demonstrations

The tradition of combining academic didactics, as well as live demonstration by masters in plastic surgery, has always been the hallmark of the Baker Gordon Symposium. It is our true hope that this year’s meeting will continue our tradition of excellence in aesthetic surgery education. We encourage you to review the “Program” links in the main menu to become familiar with the schedule of events.

Faculty

Our faculty for this year’s meeting represent a compendium of the world’s true experts in a broad spectrum of aesthetic surgery and aesthetic medicine. All of this year’s faculty have previously lectured and operated at the Baker Gordon Symposium, and are returning to Miami to contribute to the celebration of our Golden Anniversary.

The focus of this year’s meeting will examine:

  • AESTHETIC SOLUTIONS IN FACE LIFTING
  • UPPER AND LOWER BLEPLHAROPLASTY
  • CONTOUR CORRECTION IN THE SECONDARY BREAST AUGMENTATION PATIENT
  • TECHNICAL SOLUTIONS IN CIRCUMFERENTIAL LIPOSUCTION AND ABDOMINOPLASTY
  • TECHNIQUES FOR SHAPING THE NASAL TIP IN OPEN RHINOPLASTY

Advances in the USE OF NON-SURGICAL DEVICES, as well as SAFETY AND EFFICACY IN THE USE OF SUPERFICIAL AND DEEP INJECTABLE FILLERS will also be examined.
