Columbus, Ind-based cosmetic surgeon Thomas L. Jackson, MD, will present at the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery’s upcoming hands-on cadaver dissection workshop on new and established techniques in breast and body contouring.

The meeting will be held June 21-23 at the Practical Anatomy & Surgical Center training facility at St Louis University in St Louis. Day 1 focuses on breast augmentation and mastopexy, day 2 on breast reduction, and day 3 covers body contouring.

“This workshop is the perfect balance of learning new leading-edge techniques, honing existing skill sets and, perhaps most importantly, managing negative outcomes,” says Robert F. Jackson, MD, course co-director and Thomas L. Jackson’s father, in a press release.”The expert panel discussions combined with one-on-one time with the world-renowned faculty is invaluable.”

Thomas L. Jackson is a pioneer in the use of an integrated nipple-sparing mastectomy with immediate breast reconstruction. “This approach gives breast cancer survivors a new lease on life and restores much-needed confidence during an incredibly difficult time,” he says in a press release. “The power it has to transform what has traditionally been a traumatic experience into a positive one is amazing. And to witness this change in my patients post-op is nothing less than inspiring and humbling.”

This is personal to Jackson. He recently assisted in his wife’s immediate breast reconstruction following a bilateral mastectomy using this technique.
