1st Norwegian-American Aesthetic Surgery Meeting


Dear Colleague:

The Norwegian Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (NSAPS) and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) are pleased to invite you to the 1st Norwegian-American Aesthetic Surgery Meeting, in Oslo, October 23, 2015. The annual meeting of the Norwegian Society for Plastic Surgery will be held October 22, preceding this meeting. Please let your colleagues know about this special opportunity to participate in these two events!

We are proud to announce that many ASAPS members will be participating, as will 3 keynote speakers—Dr. Timothy Marten (USA), Prof. Jan Öivind Moskaug (Norway), and Prof. Hans Holmström (Sweden)—along with other Swedish and Norwegian distinguished lecturers. In all, 26 lectures and courses will be presented at this educational 1-day full-day meeting. The program will be divided into 6 specific sessions on the Face (3 sessions), Breast, Stem Cells and Fat Grafting, and QOL and Patient Safety. Special emphasis will be on recent developments in facial aesthetic surgery, with video presentations and course-based lectures by world-renowned surgeon and teacher Dr. Timothy Marten, who will provide more than 4 hours of education during his session on Face, both for beginners and the most advanced plastic surgeons. The second keynote speaker—Prof. Jan Öivind Moskaug—will elaborate on recent developments in the explosive and exciting field of stem cell and fat grafting. The prominent Swedish surgeon in the field of rhinoplasty—Prof. Hans Holmström from Gothenburg, Sweden—with his 44 years of experience, will talk about change in techniques in rhinoplasty, heading the second Face session.

Many exciting topics will be approached, including, in aesthetic breast surgery, the interesting discovery of acute cellulitis caused by breast implant dystrophic calcification and the recently implemented Swedish breast implant registry. Fat grafting enhancement tools and its controversies will be presented as well as comparison of fat processing methods. Additional lectures will present information about mastoplexy refined techniques. Quality of life and patient safety is becoming an integral part of our work and is gaining attention. The question, “Do We Harm Our Patients?” is legitimate and universal, and we will illustrate patient satisfaction/dissatisfaction with current aesthetic procedures through long-term follow-up. The complete final program is attached for your reference.

This meeting is a milestone in a collaborative effort to elevate the goals of aesthetic surgery, with more focus on research, quality of life, patient satisfaction, and developing the best standard of care. This joint meeting is a solid foundation for a scientific gathering at the highest international level.

The Congress will be held at the traditional Scandic Holmenkollen Park Hotel in Oslo, which has the best view of Norway’s beautiful capital, along with its fjords and natural surroundings. Late October in Oslo can be sunny and chilly, about 16ºC (60ºF), with clear skies and a chance of rain or snow.

We look forward to this exciting meeting and to seeing you in Oslo on October 23, 2015!
