The 2nd Norwegian-American Aesthetic Surgery Meeting

The 2nd Norwegian-American Aesthetic Surgery Meeting

After the success of the first Norwegian-American Aesthetic Surgery Meeting, in Oslo, in 2015, in which 146 attendees participated from 16 different countries, the Norwegian Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (NSAPS) and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) are pleased to invite you to the second Norwegian-American Aesthetic Surgery Meeting, October 27, 2017.

The annual meeting of the Norwegian Society for Plastic Surgery will be held October 26, just prior to Norwegian-American Aesthetic Surgery Meeting. Please let your colleagues know about this special opportunity to participate in these two events!

We are proud to announce a stellar faculty from Norway, the USA, all the Nordic countries, several European countries and Brazil. Numerous lectures will be presented at this educational one-day meeting.

It is with great sorrow that we learned of the sudden unexpected passing of our dear colleague, Dr Scott Spear. Dr Spear had confirmed his participation as faculty for our meeting prior to his sudden death and was enthusiastic to visit Norway and be among colleagues and friends.
We will remember him fondly throughout the meeting.

The confirmed faculty includes:

Frode Amland, Katarina Andjelkov, Anadi Begic, Rana Das-Gupta, Daniel Del Vecchio, James Grotting, Gudjon L Gunnarsson, Mary Jewell, Mark Jewell, Amin Kalaaji, Bouraoui Kotti, Guy Magalon, Alessandra Marchi, Maurizio Bruno Nava, Igor Niechajev, Timo Pakkanen, Norbert Pallua, Andreas Printzlau, Michel Rouif, Carlos Roxo, Frode Samdal, Birgit Starck, Jørn Bo Thomsen, Patrick Tonnard, Angelo Trivisonno, Bjørn Tvedt, Shailesh Vadodaria, Luis O Vasconez, Dennis Von Heimburg


The program will be divided into seven specific sessions: face; breast (2 sessions); stem cells, fat grafting and regenerative surgery; quality of life, patient complaints, and practice management; mortality, morbidity and patient safety in combined/high-risk procedures in aesthetic surgery; and postbariatric (MWL patients) and body contouring surgery.

Of particular interest, one of the breast sessions will deal with the selection of breast implants. Main manufacturers (Allergan, Mentor, Motiva, Polyurethane, Eurosilicone) will be given equal opportunity to talk about their implants and the reasons plastic surgeons should choose them. The discussion will include long-term complications regarding ALCL and capsular contracture.

Special emphasis will be placed on recent developments and new techniques in facial, breast and body contouring aesthetic surgery, with video presentations and course-based lectures by world renowned surgeons. The information will be abundant and informative for plastic surgeons of all levels of experience.

This meeting is a milestone in a collaborative effort to elevate aesthetic surgery, with more focus on research, quality of life, patient satisfaction, and developing the best standard of care.
This joint meeting is a solid foundation for a scientific gathering at the highest international level.

The congress will be held in Oslo, which is situated in one of Norway’s beautiful fjords and natural surroundings. Late October in Oslo can be sunny and chilly, about 16oC (60oF), with clear skies and chance of rain.
