What's New

The premier educational and networking event of the year

Join us in Chicago at Plastic Surgery The Meeting 2014 where the best and the brightest surgeons in the specialty share their expertise, network with colleagues, and discuss cutting-edge science and the latest surgical techniques.

Take advantage of our new “Deep Dive Pathways,” which give you a focused look into a single procedure in our seven content-specific tracks. Each pathway features an integrated learning cycle that includes general sessions, instructional courses, case discussion sessions, and interactive media to take your clinical education to new depths. Deep Dive Pathways are planned for Anterolateral Thigh (ALT) Flap, Body Contouring, Breast Reduction, Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate, Clinical Applications of Fat Grafting, Dupuytren’s Contracture, Facial Rejuvenation and Rhinoplasty.

Plastic Surgery The Meeting 2014 brings together more than 3,000 attendees annually and covers both aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery. It is intended for plastic surgeons, fellows, residents and other health care professionals interested in translating expanded knowledge into practice for the improvement of patient care and outcomes.
