Most surgical specialties evaluate outcome as a restoration of function, which provides a quantitative measure of efficacy for a particular procedure. Alternatively, plastic surgeons have long evaluated outcome based on subjective visual appearance. From our prospective, the relevant data published in the plastic surgery literature is usually judged by the pre- and postoperative photographs, which demonstrate the aesthetic consequences of a particular technique. The theme of this year’s 47th Annual Baker Gordon Symposium on Cosmetic Surgery is to examine the aesthetic outcomes of different technical approaches in cosmetic surgery, distilling visual clarity for surgical outcome. Only by improving visual perception can plastic surgeons accurately translate technical approach into the creation of beauty, which remains the ultimate goal of aesthetic surgery.
This year’s symposium will begin by clarifying technical approaches for PERIORBITAL REJUVENATION, including methods to blend the lid-cheek junction, examining TRANSCONJUNCTIVAL FAT REPOSITIONING as well as VOLUMETRIC PERIORBITAL AUGMENTATION. We will also examine current TECHNICAL ADVANCES IN COSMETIC MEDICINE, including a discussion of the EFFICACY AND LONGEVITY OF NEUROMODERATORS, as well as an update to clarify the use of the array of injectionable fillers for regional facial enhancement. LIVE PATIENT INJECTIONS will also be included. This year’s meeting will also emphasize PRIMARY AND SECONDARY BREAST AUGMENTATION, focusing on IMPLANT SELECTION IN PRIMARY BREAST AUGMENTATION. We will also examine methods for CONTOUR RESTORATION IN THE REOPERATIVE BREAST AUGMENTATION PATIENT, including the USE OF AUTOGENOUS FAT AUGMENTATION AS AN ALTERNATIVE IN THE SECONDARY BREAST AUGMENTATION PATIENT. Newest advances in facial rejuvenation, including HIGH SMAS TECHNIQUE IN COMBINATION WITH FACIAL VOLUMETRIC AUGMENTATION, as well as lectures and demonstrations of the FAME TECHNIQUE FOR FACIAL REJUVENATION, and the MACS APPROACH IN FACE LIFTING will be presented.
We are very honored that Dr. Brunno Ristow will present the 47th Annual Baker Gordon Symposium KEYNOTE LECTURE. Dr. Ristow will share with us his 40 year perspective in facial rejuvenation.
In the tradition of the Baker Gordon Symposium, we have limited our faculty in an attempt to allow focus on interactive interchange between faculty, hosts and audience. The tradition of combining academic didactics with live demonstrations by masters in plastic surgery has always been the hallmark of the Baker Gordon Symposium. Hopefully, this year’s meeting will continue our tradition of excellence in aesthetic surgery education.
