The Southeastern Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons (SESPRS) will hold its 29th Annual Breast Surgery Symposium, January 11-13, 2013, at the Intercontinental Hotel in Atlanta. Titled “Balance without Bias,” the Symposium will feature faculty who will share their knowledge, insight and experiences, covering the full range of aesthetic and reconstructive breast surgery. Approximately 400 participants are expected to attend.
“This is the world’s finest meeting devoted exclusively to breast surgery,” says symposium chair Mark Codner, M.D. “There’s no other meeting that includes live surgical demonstration with state-of-the-art techniques, performed by world leaders in plastic surgery of the breast.”
This year’s Symposium will include live surgery events and a panel discussion, focusing on the use of new shaped implants, approved by the FDA for aesthetic and reconstructive breast surgery. Attendees will have an opportunity to hear some of the most experienced breast surgeons in the country discuss their approaches to device selection for their patients. Another panel will discuss the art of fat grafting for cosmetic and reconstructive breast surgery. Topics relevant to all plastic surgeons will be discussed, with an emphasis on practical solutions including analysis, decision making and treatment options for common problems.
As part of the SESPRS Foreign Scholarship Program, a group of young surgeons from South Korea will attend the meeting to learn from the Symposium’s faculty. The international participants will translate the information they gather into improved patient care and surgical outcomes in their native country.
The event is sponsored by Northside Hospital.
