Dr. Babak Azizzadeh to Host Multi-Specialty Plastic Surgery Symposium
Dr. Babak Azizzadeh, a globally recognized facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, will host the Multi-Specialty Plastic Surgery Symposium at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. The two-day symposium begins November 3 and includes a series of information sessions conducted by Dr. Azizzadeh and other plastic surgery experts.
The symposium is designed for healthcare professionals who want to learn about dermatology and plastic surgery. It will focus on a variety of aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery topics, such as:
- Selective Neurolysis: Pioneered by Dr. Azizzadeh, selective neurolysis is a cutting-edge treatment for partial facial paralysis and synkinesis. Dr. Azizzadeh will discuss selective neurolysis, how it is performed and how it helps partial facial paralysis and synkinesis patients achieve a dynamic smile.
- Rhinoplasty and Nasal Reconstruction: Azizzadeh possesses advanced rhinoplasty and nasal reconstruction surgery expertise. He will provide insights into rhinoplasty and nasal reconstruction surgery techniques, along with how to determine the best approach to help a patient achieve a naturally beautiful and fully functional nose.
- Eyelid and Eyebrow Surgery: Azizzadeh has extensive experience with eyelid and eyebrow surgeries. He will offer tips and recommendations to help improve patient outcomes and reduce the risk of complications during eyelid and eyebrow procedures.
- Breast Revision Surgery: Breast implant revision surgery is used to replace old breast implants with new implants. At the symposium, attendees will learn how to evaluate breast revision surgery candidates and apply best practices to achieve the safest and most effective treatment results.
- Craniofacial Anomalies: Craniofacial anomalies are irregularities that affect the head and facial bones. They may occur at birth, and in some instances, require surgery. Meanwhile, symposium attendees will receive insights into the clinical manifestations of craniofacial anomalies and proper management of craniosynostosis, a condition that affects normal brain and skull growth.
- Venous Malformations: Venous malformations occur when veins develop incorrectly, and they may cause veins to stretch or become enlarged. During the symposium, attendees will examine current and emerging multimodal therapies to treat venous malformations.
Dr. Azizzadeh will participate in several presentations and panel discussions at the symposium. These include:
- Rhinoplasty: Tips and Traps: Rhinoplasty is among the most common cosmetic surgeries, and it is used to help individuals improve facial harmony and correct nasal asymmetry. Yet not all rhinoplasty surgeries are identical, and tailoring a rhinoplasty to a patient is key. During this presentation, Dr. Azizzadeh will discuss rhinoplasty surgery, as well as provide tips and recommendations to ensure nose job patients can achieve a balanced and natural-looking facial appearance.
- Panel Discussion: Challenging Rhinoplasty Case Presentation: Rhinoplasty surgery is complex. Multiple types of nose procedures are available, and sometimes, determining the best way to help a patient reshape the nose and ensure it matches his or her eyes, cheeks and other facial features may be difficult. In this panel discussion, Dr. Azizzadeh and other rhinoplasty surgery experts will examine a case study that highlights some of the most common challenges associated with nose procedures.
- Special Guest Bernard Sarnat Lecture: Facial Rejuvenation – Current Considerations: Azizzadeh has a simple facial plastic surgery goal: to help a patient rejuvenate his or her facial appearance. To accomplish this goal, he takes a holistic approach to facial plastic surgery. Dr. Azizzadeh meets with a patient, performs comprehensive testing and evaluates his or her medical history. He then offers a personalized facial plastic surgery treatment recommendation. In this presentation, Dr. Azizzadeh will discuss some of the current considerations related to facial rejuvenation procedures with Bahman Guyuron, MD, FACS.
- Selective Neurectomy: Novel Treatment for Partial Facial Paralysis: Azizzadeh developed selective neurectomy to help partial facial paralysis and synkinesis patients restore their smile. Selective neurectomy addresses abnormal regeneration of the facial nerve that prevents partial facial paralysis and synkinesis patients from smiling. It corrects this “mis-wiring,” and to date, selective neurectomy has delivered unprecedented facial reanimation results. In this presentation, Dr. Azizzadeh will discuss selective neurectomy and how it provides the first permanent treatment option for patients who are dealing with partial facial paralysis or synkinesis.
Aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgeries vary widely. Patients may consider surgical or non-surgical procedures to address birth defects, revitalize their facial appearance, correct nasal deformities and reshape the body, among other reasons.
For healthcare professionals, it is important to keep pace with patient requirements. If these professionals possess skills and knowledge related to current and emerging plastic surgery technologies and techniques, they may be better equipped than ever before to help patients achieve the best-possible treatment results.
The Multi-Specialty Plastic Surgery Symposium provides clinical programming to help healthcare professionals fulfill patient requests. It offers insights into both surgical and non-surgical treatments, along with insights into different aspects of facial rejuvenation, nose surgery, nasal reconstruction and eyelid surgery. Plus, the symposium highlights the latest advances in breast revision surgery, craniosynostosis, management of migraine headaches and complex venous malformation therapy. It even teaches attendees about body contouring techniques, including fat grafting and non-surgical and post-bariatric approaches.
Dr. Azizzadeh is proud to participate in the Multi-Specialty Plastic Surgery Symposium, and he is happy to help patients achieve their facial plastic surgery goals in any way possible. As Chairman and Director of the CENTER for Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery in Los Angeles, Dr. Azizzadeh strives to help facial plastic surgery patients, as well as patients in need of complex facial nerve procedures.
