Munich Facial Plastic Surgery - MFPS 2013

(Course Director: Alexander Berghaus)

February 18-22, 2013, Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, Großhadern Medical Center, Ludwig Maximilian University, Munich, Germany

This year’s course focused on basic and advanced rhinoplasty, ear corrections and reconstructions as well as facial soft tissue and the aging face.

The course started on Monday, February 18, with the workshop “Update on Botox, other Neurotoxins and Dermal Fillers”. Richard Gentile (Boardman, USA) and Thomas Romo III (New York City, USA) presented the pharmacological and practical fundamentals to treat the aging face with neurotoxins and fillers. Subsequently, the audience was able to witness live treatment in a series of patients. The core of the practical focus of the course were two full mornings of fresh cadaver dissections on Wednesday and Thursday, where participants could practice all desired operative procedures in small groups side by side with the experts.

The theoretical lessons on Tuesday and Wednesday were dedicated to rhinoplasty and facial soft tissue. Course director Alexander Berghaus (Munich, Germany) was supported by Shahram Anari (Birmingham, UK) in communicating the basic armamentarium for every rhinosurgeon: nasal proportions and nasal function. Pros and cons of endonasal versus open rhinoplasty were discussed by Berghaus and Hossam Foda (Alexandria, Egypt). Lectures focusing on surgery of the nasal tip were given by Foda and Romo, and lectures about defining of the nasal dorsum by Anari and Berghaus. Additional special aspects in rhinoplasty, such as non-Caucasian and severely crooked noses as well as revision rhinoplasty were covered by the whole faculty. Klaus Stelter (Munich, Germany) gave an update about the search for suitable alloplastic implants in rhinoplasty. The rhinoplasty sessions were crowned by a round table of the whole faculty presenting own cases of “difficult” noses. In the following theme complex, Gentile and Romo explained the basic principles of the treating the aging face and shared their expertise in facelift surgery with the audience. In the evening, faculty and participants, a little exhausted from so much teaching and learning, regained strength for the next day by joining the social event in the famous Munich Hofbräuhaus.

The talks on Thursday focused on surgery of the auricle and facial reconstruction. Berghaus presented his refined techniques of otoplasty, also with a special focus on revision cases, as well as the principles of auricular reconstruction with porous polyethylene implants. Romo contributed his extensive experience with the results of this method. John Martin Hempel (Munich, Germany) showed how maximal benefit in microtia rehabilitation can be achieved by a single stage auricular reconstruction with porous polyethylene combined with hearing rehabilitation by implantable devices such as the Vibrant Soundbridge. A lecture about basic principles of flap design and skin defect reconstruction by Anari was followed by Berghaus’ practical instructions for nasal reconstruction.

The last day of the course, Friday, was a further highlight: Participants could witness live surgery side by side with the masters in the operating room. For this day, Werner Mang (Lindau, Germany) had joined the faculty. The procedures included facial rejuvenation (Gentile), rhinoplasty (Berghaus, Romo, Foda, Mang) and auricular reconstruction (Hempel).

After these five days of Munich Facial Plastic Surgery 2013, participants were full of new impressions and eager to apply the achieved knowledge and skills in their own practice at home. They gave the organizers an overwhelmingly positive feedback.
