The multidisciplinary faculty, renown experts in their fields, focus on practical techniques and conceptual pearls designed to send participants home with tools that they can immediately apply to their own practice.

Friday, July 20, 2018
UCLA Stein Eye Institute, CHS 53-129, Dissection Laboratory – 7:30 am - 4:30 pm

The dissection workshop focuses on anatomic and surgical pearls of core aesthetic surgical procedures such as upper and lower blepharoplasty, Asian blepharoplasty, forehead lift, mid face lift, and canthoplasty options. The various procedures will be reviewed in step-by-step fashion, utilizing a detailed dissection manual, bullet point surgical videos, and prosections by faculty experts. A limited enrollment will promote close interaction between participants and faculty so that each participant can perform the procedures on cadavers, with faculty guidance.

Due to popular demand, we have once again added a live audio visual feed of the aesthetics dissection course. We have tried this once before and received rave reviews. The course directors, faculty, and guest faculty are “miked up” and seen in high definition performing the dissections from our Friday dissection course in our audio visual suite. The live audio visual suite also receives all the live lectures given in the laboratory. A faculty monitor will be present at all times in the audio visual suite to relate your questions to the “miked up” faculty. Then the same faculty will also come to the audio visual suite to lead further discussion. Both the faculty and the attendees loved this new educational experience.

Saturday, July 21, 2018
UCLA Stein Eye Institute, RPB Auditorium – 7:30 am - 5:00 pm

The second day of the course will be didactic covering the nuances of technique that are critical for achieving the elegant results demanded by today’s sophisticated patients. This course brings together innovative experts in aesthetic oculoplastic surgery to share their experiences, techniques, and pearls. A range of talks will be given covering aesthetic blepharoplasty, endoscopic forehead surgery, face lift surgery, and non-incisional techniques. Course participants unable to attend the first day of the course are welcome for the second day.

Target Audience:

This course is targeted to practicing ophthalmologists and oculoplastic surgeons.

Disclosures

The FDA has issued a concept paper which classifies commercial support of scientific and educational programs as promotional unless it can be affirmed that the program is "truly independent" and free of commercial influence. In addition to independence, the FDA requires that nonpromotional, commercially supported education be objective, balanced, and scientifically rigorous. The policy further states that all potential conflicts of interest of the CME staff and faculty be fully disclosed to the program's participants. In addition, Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education policy mandates that the provider adequately manages all identified potential conflicts of interest prior to the program. We at UCLA fully endorse the letter and spirit of these concepts.
