The theme of the 53rd Baker Gordon Symposium on Cosmetic Surgery is to examine ENLIGHTENED VARIATIONS IN TECHNIQUES which have been pioneered by master surgeons to improve both consistency and outcomes in aesthetic surgery procedures. In our opinion, it is these technical variations which represents the VANGUARD OF CREATIVITY that is the hallmark of innovation in plastic surgery.
We have assembled an excellent group of national and international plastic surgeons to discuss pragmatic solutions for a number of face and body aesthetic procedures.

In the tradition of the Baker Gordon Educational Symposium, we have limited our faculty in an attempt to allow focus on interactive interchange between faculty, host and audience.
You can share in the comments between the operating physician and the audience as easily as if you were right there beside the operating table. Closed circuit television and telephone link-up makes you part of the O. R. team.
We have designated times where you may visit the exhibit area, reconnect with colleagues, chat with friends and simply enjoy! If you missed any of the previous Baker Gordon Symposia, there will be a variety of recordings, selected by the hosts, available for viewing in an adjacent area.
The tradition of combining academic didactics with live demonstrations by masters in plastic surgery has always been the hallmark of the Baker Gordon Educational Symposium. Hopefully, this year’s meeting will continue our traditions of excellence in aesthetic surgery education.
