The 2017 EAFPS Annual Conference will present an innovative format with multi-disciplinary faculty and focused sessions on every aspect of facial plastic surgery, from simple to advanced operative techniques, including experts’ insights for surgical and non-surgical facial rejuvenation, as well as pearls about avoidance and management of complications.
A jam-packed four days promises something for everyone!
As you know, the choice of the Faculty is a key issue in the definition of the scientific format as well as the successful outcome of a meeting.
We achieve to involve recognized leaders of facial plastic surgery in Europe and overseas, and until now we have confirmed almost 200 faculty members from more than 30 countries! Ira Papel, from the USA, will honor us with the Joseph Lecture this year.
The 2017 EAFPS Annual Meeting will be a great success. As someone well known in the USA say, the EAFPS Annual Meeting will be huge and tremendous regarding the current state of art in facial plastic surgery.
This is actually the main reason why we are addressing this letter to you.
In addition to catching up with the latest developments in facial plastics surgery, the 2017 EAFPS Annual conference in Lisbon will provide a unique setting for an unforgettable event. For lovers of historic sites, Lisbon provides a highly impressive collection of places that would require several weeks for full appreciation. However, if time is limited, even a day trip from Lisbon will introduce you to a whole host of UNESCO World Heritage sites, such as the Jerónimos Monastery, the Belem Tower, the Pena National Palace commanding beautiful views of a magnificent park, and the Moorish Castle just to mention a few. In addition, as Portugal was the center of a vast international empire, Lisbon still reflects this heritage in its amazing cuisine including fresh seafood and excellent wines.
On behalf of EAFPS we do hope that you will be willing and able to join us in Portugal for a wonderful blend of scientific topics and social activities.
António Sousa Vieira, MD
President of the 2017 EAFPS Annual Meeting
