This last week I had the pleasure and honor of participating in the 31st annual meeting of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery in New Orleans, Louisiana. This is always my favorite meeting as I get to see my talented cosmetic surgery friends from all over the world. This is always a great showcase for leaning and teaching. I presented lectures on facelift, eyelid surgery, injectable fillers, laser resurfacing, otoplasty (corrective ear surgery) and facial implants. Some of the best known cosmetic surgeons in the world presented at this meeting and I was honored to be a session moderator for the live injection session on facial fillers and neuromodulators. I shared the podium with some of the best known (and best looking) injectors in the world. Anyone who injects fillers and Botox is familiar with the names above.
Teaching and learning are two of my passions and this was a great meeting in a great city that involved great friends from all over the world. I sit on the board of directors for the AACS and look forward to a great year and our next meeting in Hollywood, Florida.
