Welcome letter from the National Secretary ISAPS South Africa Peter Scott.
Ewa Siolo and myself would like to invite you to join us for our annual ISAPS local meeting to be held in Cape Town from 18-20 March 2017. The meeting will be held at the Lord Charles Hotel in Somerset West and we will use a similar format to this year where we will use the ballroom for the lectures and have all the Trade in a common area where the meals and teas will be served.
Our keynote speakers this year will be three Past-Presidents of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).
- Jim Grotting will be well known to you through his textbook: “Re-operative Aesthetic and Reconstructive Plastic Surgery”
- Joe Hunstad for his work on liposuction and body contouring and
- Mark Jewell for his publications on breast surgery and his expertise on ALCL. Dr Jewel will be sponsored by Genop.
Additional speakers will be Dr Klaus Ueberreiter, who is an expert on facial fat injection and the Body Jet system and his sponsors are looking at offering a pre-congress at Jonathan Toogood’s clinic in Somerset West on the afternoon of 17 March. Allergan will bring in Arthur Swift for a workshop and lecture on the 17 March as well at the same venue.
Additional lectures will be on practice management by Mary Jewell and ethics by Marshall Murdoch. We have also invited Jeremy Gardiner from Investec to give us his economics update.
Our three keynote speakers have offered to do a three hour breakaway symposium for the registrars covering: face, breast, body contouring, liposuction, markings, basic technique and complications.
March is always a good time to be in the Cape and we would invite you to spend an extra few days enjoying the hospitality of our vineyards.
Our congress organiser is Hendrika Van der Merwe and her email address for the congress is: firstname.lastname@example.org
