FACE TO FACE PROGRAM SPONSORED BY
THE AMERICAN ACADEMY OF FACIAL PLASTIC AND RECONSTRUCTIVE SURGERY
I just concluded one of the most unique and gratifying experiences of my career. I was asked to participate in a Face to Face program sponsored by the AAFPRS (The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery). This program sends a team of doctors to the less well developed countries to train their doctors in modern surgical techniques and perform surgery.
The Glasgold Group held several workshops at the Annual 2011 Fall Meeting of the AAFPRS (The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery) in San Francisco, California.
Mastering the Nasal Tip
Drs. Alvin and Robert Glasgold lectured on “Mastering the Nasal Tip” and this covered particular problems with difficult nasal tips, including its support, its rotation and the prevention of drooping.
Dr. Alvin Glasgold has been working on a new type of cartilage homograft for nasal reconstruction. The concept was presented at the 2011 MTF (“Musculoskeletal Transplant Foundation, Inc.) Symposium in Mt. Kisco, New York on November 12th.
At the November 2011 Workshop in St. Louis, MO entitled “Master Techniques in Facial Rejuvenation and Nasal Surgery” Dr. Mark Glasgold did a talk on deep plane facelift and lectured with Dr. Samuel Lam on fat transfer for facial rejuvenation.
Dr. Mark Glasgold gave three lectures at the AAFPRS Aging Face Course in San Diego January 2012. The first described Advanced Concepts in Autologous Fat Transfer including the Glasgold Group’s early results with growth factor enhanced fat transfers. Malar mounds and festoon described the treatment of these extremely difficult problems with techniques developed at the Glasgold Group. “Facelift and Volume Augmentation: An Integrated Approach” described the use of autologous fat transfer with deep plane facelift to create a natural harmonious facial rejuvenation.
