Every 4 years, the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) and the International Federation of Facial Plastic Surgery Societies (IFFPSS) host an international symposium that brings together facial plastic surgeons from all over the world and in the specialties of facial plastic surgery, oculoplastic surgery, dermatologic surgery, plastic and cosmetic surgery. The symposium features the latest trends and technologies in facial plastic surgery by offering lectures, panels, workshops, and instruction courses led by experts in the field and an exhibition of over 100 companies displaying and introducing their latest products and services.

What makes this meeting special is the commemoration and celebration of the Academy’s 50th Anniversary. Building on the traditions of the AAFPRS, this meeting explores the latest in techniques and technologies in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. Internationally renowned facial plastic surgeons will be joined by colleagues in plastic surgery, dermatology, and oculoplastic surgery in discussing the nuances of facial plastic surgery.

Cadaver labs focusing on rhinoplasty, facelift, endoscopic brow and mid face lift, and blepharoplasty and ptosis repair provide hands-on experience to practice the nuances of specific procedures, while separate workshops on energy-based skin rejuvenation and hair restoration provide in-depth coverage of these topics. A 2-day practice-management course will cover marketing, social media, and the Internet and staffing issues in your practice. This symposium will be held in New York City and in the heart of Times Square, which promises to be a venue that will bring fun and excitement to every member of your family. The cultural, recreational, and educational opportunities of New York are all within a short distance from the meeting.
