    Moderator: Theda C. Kontis, MD / Panelists: Rami K. Batniji, MD, Cynthia K. Gregg, MD, Linda N. Lee, MD and Vishad Nabili, MD

    Now that we have had  6 months of experience following many of these guidelines and dealing with COVID, practitioners from around the country, we will discuss the measures they have adopted to practice safely in the office and operating room. Topics will include changes the office experience, virtual visits, exam room safety precautions, OR safety precautions, COVID testing, and new office protocols. We will also discuss the drawbacks and well as the benefits we have experienced with instituting many of these changes.

    Presenter: Holger G. Gassner, MD

    Dr. Gassner will also discuss the "S.O.F.T. Concept" in rhinoplasty, which was developed to minimize trauma, shorten recovery, maintain a naturally soft nasal tip, and preserve the skeletal and soft tissue elements of the nose. Representative cases will be shown to elucidate endonasal solutions to the entire spectrum of deformities and functional aspects of the nose.

    In order to better understand the rationale behind medial based deep plane facelifting and how it differs from lateral superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) facelifting (high SMAS orlow SMAS), this webinar will focus on an advanced understanding of the complex anatomy of the SMAS and soft tissues of the face primarily using surgical videos to enhance learning.

    Presenter: Andrew A. Jacono, MD

    Includes anatomic description of the fixed and mobile SMAS. Unlike lateral SMAS facelift flap procedures (high or low), the extended deep plane facelift enters the sub-SMAS plane medially at the mobile SMAS giving it a biomechanical advantages when lifting the anterior midface and jowl soft tissue ptosis. Integral to this procedure is release of four key retaining ligaments in the face and neck, the zygomatic cutaneous, masseteric cutaneous, mandibular cutaneous, and cervical retaining ligaments. Once released, the composite deep plane flap is repositioned in a vertical vector to volumize the midface and gonial angle along the jawline. Important anatomic considerations during the deep plane dissection are discussed. In the midface, these include the fixed and mobile SMAS, zygomatic and masseteric cutaneous ligaments, facial fat compartments, and facial nerve. In the neck, focus is on extending the deep plane dissection of the platytsma, releasing the cervical retaining ligaments. This course will also discuss modification in platysma myotomies that improve jawline contour, and re-draping the composite deep plane flap to volumize the midface and gonial angle which atrophy with age, thus improving the cheek and jawline contour.  Data on longevity and efficacy will be presented based upon cohort studies of over 1000 patients.

    Moderator: Samuel L. Oyer, MD / Panelists: Babak Azizzadeh, MD, Patrick J. Byrne, MD and Tessa A. Hadlock, MD


    This presentation involves a panel discussion utilizing case-based examples to illustrate real-life scenarios faced my many facial plastic & reconstructive surgeons treating patients with facial paralysis. The panelists discuss practical surgical techniques and patient management pearls they have honed over years dedicated to facial reanimation. Case examples will include office based treatments such as chemodenervation and surgical techniques ranging from static slings, to nerve transfer, to free muscle transfer.  An emphasis will be placed on practical techniques to equip attendees with helpful tools when treating their own patients.
