What to expect at the #nonsurgical2016

Invitation to participate

The Australasian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS) and the Cosmetic Physicians College of Australasia (CPCA) invite you to join them at what is undoubtedly the premier educational event for non-surgical aesthetics in Australasia – the 2016 Non-Surgical Symposium, 2 to 5 June at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.

The attendance of this meeting has grown by 20% each year and 2015 was a sell-out.

Once again the doors will be opened to all medical practitioners performing non-surgical rejuvenation and their staff. We will be welcoming plastic surgeons, cosmetic doctors, dermatologists, ophthalmologists and the nurse aeshteticians, dermal therapists and practice staff who work with them. The success of the past Symposium is due to a vital component which guaranteed it’s value and ongoing relevance: independent presentations by a long list of international and leading local presenters on state of the art concepts and practice in the non-surgical rejuvenation sector.

The Non-Surgical Symposium will again cover the entire spectrum on appearance medicine, from injectables, through to skin care, including laser/light devices and non-surgical body contouring tools. A lot has happened in the last year to bring you up to speed on. We are going to work hard to make our program more interactive, with a larger focus on expert panel discussions. In 2016 we will take greater advantage of the quality of teachers that we have on faculty and already in Australia and New Zealand, using video (rather than live injecting), so that we can make the process more efficient with better images and a greater learning experience.

On the day prior to the Symposium, Thursday June 2, ASAPS will run the Anatomical Dissection and Live Injecting Workshop (additional fees apply) at the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons.

There will be a short lecture program on the anatomical changes of ageing and how this affects facial aesthetics and guides treatment selection. The workshop will have a combination of anatomical dissection and live injecting, and the program is modified each year according to feedback.

We will again use the keynote presenters from the Non-Surgical Symposium as guest faculty for the workshop in both the anatomy and injecting areas alongside our local experts. Visit www.asapsevents.org.au for more information.

Lastly while science is our focus, let’s not forget the social program of the Non-Surgical Symposium, which has reached legend status. The Gala dinner will be a black-tie event with all the bells, whistles, and glowing gloves that we have come to both love and expect.

2016 will be fresh, exciting and inspiring. 2015 was sold out and numbers are limited once again in 2016, so register early to avoid disappointment.
