Target Audience

This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of those Board Certified or Board Eligible in Plastic Surgery, Facial Plastic Surgery, Dermatology, and Oculoplastic Surgery, and Allied Health Professionals working directly with one of those specialists.

Learning Outcome

To build educational bridges among the specialties involved with aesthetic medicine and surgery

Educational Objectives

As a result of this activity, the participant should be better able to:

  • Compare options for skin rejuvenation through the use of modern lasers and other skin tightening devices, fillers, injectables, and minimally invasive lifting techniques
  • Differentiate the various approaches to blepharoplasty and browlifting to determine which technique is best suited for the patient
  • Estimate which patients are better candidates for surgical rejuvenation versus which may benefit from non-invasive approaches
  • Assess controversial topics in facial aesthetic surgery for more informed decisions as related to patient outcomes
  • Distinguish various face lifting techniques as they relate to anatomy
  • Discuss the truths and limitations utilizing injectable fillers and non-invasive devices
  • Demonstrate an improved understanding of how to avoid common problems with Rhinoplasty
  • Discuss the many new advances in body contouring

Statement of Need

There is a lack of truly multi-specialty educational sessions that include worldwide, prominent educators from each field, brought together for technique discussions and knowledge sharing. This symposium is unique in that it brings an international audience to San Diego to link together and build a truly multi-disciplinary environment with a balanced representation of all the core specialties: dermatology, facial plastic surgery, oculoplastic surgery, and plastic surgery. This education program will include high-quality, learner friendly discussions on technique(s), emerging technology, complications that may arise (and how to avoid them), and non-invasive alternatives to surgery. Evaluations from 20+ years of meetings produced by Dr. S. Randolph Waldman, our founder and organizer, have shown a consistent desire and need for multi-disciplinary education in these aesthetic specialties. Physicians within these fields have demonstrated the desire for in-depth technique discussions as a matter of providing a necessary, strong pool of knowledge among the specialties. The 2022 MAC meets the need for a truly multi-specialty educational experience to help achieve better standards and patient outcomes.
