2nd Announcement

Dear Colleagues

The date for the meeting is fast approaching.  Early Bird Registration will open on Friday 1 February 2019.  This announcement will give you the opportunity to glance at our invited guest speakers and their talks.

Traditionally pre-congress workshop will be organised by Genop and Allergan and we are waiting for confirmation from NuAngle.  There will be local and overseas presenters to give demonstrations on fillers, threads and PRP.

The overseas guests who are partaking in our congress are:

Dr Giovanni Botti comes from Salò, Lake Garda, Italy and is the head manager and the main surgeon of Villa Bella Clinic.  He will be talking on the Motiva Breast Implants and facial surgery.

She is a certified expert injector and she also provides many non-surgical cosmetic treatments in her plastic-surgeon supervised Skin Spa. Dr Hamori’s topics will cover invasive and non-invasive female rejuvenation.

We are going to incorporate overseas guests sponsored by the trade to talk about regenerative medicine, fillers and threads.  Those details of the invited doctors and their areas of interest will be advertised by the trade on our website.

The Early Bird Registration will allow you to have discounted registration fees, so please make use of this opportunity.  The closing date for Early Bird registration will be 25 February 2019. We will also arrange slightly reduced fees for the Registrars, so kindly encourage and support them to join the meeting.

The idea of gathering in Somerset West is to educate and experience the latest developments in aesthetic plastic surgery.  So please use this rare opportunity to network, educate and exchange information with the guest speakers and your colleagues.

We are looking forward to seeing you all there.  We will issue the scientific programme shortly.

Kind regards
