About the Dallas Rhinoplasty Symposium

This unique annual rhinoplasty meeting – The Dallas Rhinoplasty Symposium – will teach you how to analyze the nose, diagnose common and uncommon rhinoplasty problems and develop an individualized operative plan for different rhinoplasty deformities. It will also provide you with a review of the nasal anatomy and a hands-on experience of performing the above techniques on a fresh cadaver nose in the laboratory. The goal of the symposium and the world class faculty is to give the attendees the tools needed to perform a rhinoplasty that produces the best functioning and esthetic rhinoplasty result possible.

Who Should Attend

This symposium is designed for and limited to the plastic surgeon or otolaryngologist who would benefit from a refresher course in the anatomy and fundamentals of rhinoplasty. The didactic course will provide an update on specific aspects and problems of rhinoplasty. Registration is limited.

Purpose and Content

The symposium is designed to take the participant from the basic fundamentals of rhinoplasty through the latest refinements and advancements in technique. It will consist of didactic lectures, cadaver dissections, panel discussions, question-and-answer periods, and evening DVD sessions. An anatomic nasal dissection DVD will be provided to all participants registered for the anatomy laboratory.

Participants will observe experienced surgeons demonstrate advanced closed and open rhinoplasty techniques via unedited videotaped surgery. Participants may directly engage in questions and answers with the surgeons.
