This running instructional course returns with a highly-regarded team of local and international faculty, focused on Septorhinoplasty, with a sub-focus on facial reconstructive surgery. We have dedicated a section of our course this year to include the approach to facial defects, functional reconstruction using locoregional and microsurgical techniques, and scar management. This 2-day program includes a collection of lectures with daily hands-on dissection on high-quality cadavers at our state-of-the-art dissection lab.
