Letter from the President

Dear colleagues,

We are preparing the XVIII edition of the International Symposium that this next year will be taking place once again at the Sheraton Convention Center in Sao Paulo from 17 to 19 March. It will be a weekend with an intense Scientific Programming, bringing important names of Plastic Surgery in Brazil and abroad to discuss the latest advances in our specialty. As always we will approach the body contouring surgery but with emphasis on surgery of the face and minimally invasive procedures. Great experts from dermatologic area will address the facial fillers and peels for facial rejuvenation. We know it is an area of utmost importance that many colleagues have asked us to address and hence why we devote more space to this topic that undoubtedly will bring important news to all surgeons.

On Saturday morning, we will have the surgical live demonstrations - a tradition of our Symposium that are scheduled 6 surgeries and 2 applications fills. These surgeries will be directly transmitted from the San Rafael Hospital to the audience through the system HD High Definition Casablanca company. In addition, on Sunday we will have the return of RHINO, a course of Rhinoplasty designed many years ago by our colleague Nelson Heller bringing together the most outstanding nose surgeons of the country. Specialists as Sebastian Nelson, Farid Hakme, Luciano Chaves and others colleagues are showing late results of those patients operated on RHINOS previous years in their cities.

It will be a pleasure to have you with us again in a weekend in Sao Paulo. With a big hug from colleagues,

Carlos Uebel and Ewaldo Bolivar
